TOKYO, July 20 (Reuters) – Britain said on Tuesday it would permanently deploy two warships in Asian waters after its Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier and escort ships sail to Japan in September through seas where China is vying for influence with the United States and Japan.

Plans for the high-profile visit by the carrier strike group come as London deepens security ties with Tokyo, which has expressed growing alarm in recent months over China’s territorial ambitions in the region, including Taiwan.

  1. Very interesting announcement.

    Imperialist China is a problem, and is determined to be a bigger problem.

    The US/Japan/UK just by themselves are a most interesting military alliance. And we do have allies, yes we do.

  2. As we have seen this week the most immediate threat from China is cyber warfare, not the invasion of Taiwan. The next significant Chinese cyber attack needs to be followed by massive retaliation by all of the states that went public this week, that is the USA, the UK, the EU, Australia and Japan. And the same needs to apply to Russia. It will be time for action, not words.

    1. I understand that the Russian ransomware group has gone quiet after the recent conversations with Biden.

      That sets a good precedent for China.

      Ultimately, cyber warfare is very bad for business. The Chinese can be made to understand that…I hope.

      The US and Europe should strongly crack down on business and government / non profits that have lax security. Which is half of them. The lax security organizations endanger all of us.

      And make it a serious crime to pay any ransom.

      And crack down on crypto, the bullshit scam ” currency ” created for such things as the drugs trade and ransom payment.

  3. Yes, of course lax security is a serious problem. But governments need to put their own house in order before they start threatening businesses. It’s only three years since the NHS suffered a serious ransomware attack because many of its pcs were still running on Windows XP more than a decade after it was replaced.

  4. Yep

    And I very much worry about the entire concept of cloud computing and being so widely connected in the first place. But that’s another story.

  5. This administration will never retaliate against china for cyber attacks, period.

    They would the Russians, but not the Chinese the tech companies have Trillions in assets in China they don’t with Russia.
    ….
    Biden’s hands are tied, by choice.

  6. So China could shut down the US government and there would be no retaliation? LOL

    Biden is mostly hostile to the tech oligarchs because he sees them allowing tsunamis of lies on their platforms, including the stolen election, the covid hoax and millions of anti-vaxxer liars spouting their bullshit and causing thousands of needless deaths among US citizens. So he’s not going to put their commercial interests ahead of US national interests.

    That’s a big contrast with Trump who always put his own commercial interests ahead of US national interests. We will be hearing a lot more about that in the next few months.

    1. Biden is still the President of the US.?

      Wow!

      I gave him six months, max, before Kamala Harris took over the reins.

      Fair play to him for hanging in on there.

  7. His own choice Phantom. From all the Bribes from China that he chose to take, and all the financing and censorship from big tech that helped rig the election.

    He owes too much to both to ever do anything to either, and he’s in that position by HIS own choices.

    1. That’s a confused mishmosh.

      Actually, Biden is confronting China right now, and China isn’t one bit happy about it.

      Biden’s China policy isn’t much different than the Trump 2018-2020 China policy.

      1. While this has been one of the more interesting threads (I’m down to skimming headlines at this stage) – I’m not sure if it’s heroic or moronic that you keep up the input, Phantom.

        When there’s more bloggers than posters there’s something seriously wrong.

  8. My god what happened to you…. the TDS destroyed all your cognitive ability…. it really is a shame.

    No he is not the richest man in the World like Bezos, but every dime he has he got through graft and corruption. Joe’s worth is 18 Million, his family over 150 million. All aquired on a 140,000 salary for 47 years… we see no stinkin corruption…. lol
    ….

  9. There are people in your neighborhood worth that much.

    You’d be surprised.

    When I think of ” vast wealth “, Joe Biden doesn’t come to mind.

    His family net worth is not $150 million or anywhere close to it. You got that from some deadbeat blog like Conservative Treehouse, or from ” the great one “

  10. smcgiff if you want to go… by all means don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out…..
    ….
    If you want to encourage others to go feel free asshole., the IRA blog would love ya.

    This site is in the Process of rebuilding since the IRA was pushed off. The silence is better than the fighting with those assholes.

    If Phantom chooses to go that will be his choice, until then he can write posts and argue whatever he wants even if he chosses not to. The door will always remain open to him. He’s intelligent and on the very rare occasions that he finds his spine his views are welcome.
    ….
    People like you Smcgiff on the other hand have always just been a waste of type….

    1. “ If you want to encourage others to go feel free asshole., the IRA blog would love ya.

      What is this IRA blog you speak of at times? I am somewhat intrigued.

      This site is in the Process of rebuilding since the IRA was pushed off. The silence is better than the fighting with those assholes.”

      And you can’t say fairer than that.

      “ The door will always remain open to him. He’s intelligent and on the very rare occasions that he finds his spine”

      Intelligent? Hmmmmmm.

      😏

      May I suggest “ https://www.thejournal.ie”

      They are loaded with anti-British bigoted arseholes there.

    2. Patrick,

      I’ve been viewing and commenting on ATW since approx 2005. I do, and will lament the deterioration in the qualify of the output right up until the time I get banned/deregistered.

      As I said there are more bloggers than follow up posters. You have your own opinion as to why, and that they’ve gone off to some IRA website. I don’t know what that site is and wont be searching Phantom’s back posts to find it.

      You claim I’m a waste of space and ‘always’ was – My previous post to this was to show the hypocrisy of Peter Moore’s post (that’s putting it lightly) and I have contributed many times before. The definition of a ‘Waste’ seems to be someone with a contrary view. Is that Altmedia these days?

      I’ve been told this is an alternative view website and wont post (says GED) post anything that’s with the zeitgeist, as it were. Well, when was the last anti Brexit blog, seeing as that was won by popular vote, shouldn’t the Altmedia be all over anti brexit?

      Of course it wont, because the site has an agenda, a right wing agenda more than Alternative. Well, it’s alternative as long as it’s right wing. NOTHING AT ALL WRONG WITH THAT. Just own it.

      And don’t kid me, I hope you’re not kidding yourself, you do miss the activity on here even if it was coming from the “IRA crowd”. Can you fix it, I hope so.

      As I said, I’ve been reading (at one time daily) ATW since approx 2005 and I’ll keep popping in in the hope of one good thread, until the ban.

      1. Smcgiff I know how long you’ve been here and as far as I’m concerned you are part of the old problem…. Dave was the only person I ever permanently banned, so I doubt you will get banned even though you are primarily a crank and that’s just fine.

        If you are just going to come here and trash us then don’t come, if you don’t like me don’t come, if you disagree with what the site is don’t come.

        People like you are why the site deteriorated and whether you look for the IRA blog or not I could careless…..

  11. I’ll say what I want and I’ll call it what I want. They called me a Liar for years and everyone on that site is an IRA supporter, those are facts.
    ….
    Now since they’re gone you want to take up their mantel Phantom…. you want to start a fight? Do your best.

    1. “ I’ll say what I want and I’ll call it what I want. They called me a Liar for years and everyone on that site is an IRA supporter, those are facts”

      Ah, I understand now, have our former ATW adversaries started their own blog?

  12. Look it is going to take time to build a following here.
    ….
    it took 10yrs for it to reach it’s peak before and then ten years to lose it.
    ….
    We lost it from the personal fights, there have been none since the last group of agitators moved on. I meant it when I said I’d rather the site fail than for it to continue as it was. Argue the issue, not the person or you are not welcome here. You can support any political view you want, we encourage it.
    ….
    It is not a combat zone now, and I won’t let it ever get there again.
    ….
    If like smcgiff you are unhappy please leave. Express your Liberty and go…..
    ….
    We are working to rebuild a base, it takes time

  13. “No he is not the richest man in the World like Bezos, but every dime he has he got through graft and corruption.”

    And Trump is 100% clean and has never dodged paying his taxes. In a 2016 debate Hillary Clinton accused Trump of being a tax-dodger and he shot back at her “That makes me smart!””

  14. I have seen post here that say this site is Right Wing and it is meant to be an Alt site, Well I say that’s right. If we had a left wing site then it WOULD BE LIKE ALL THE OTHER SITES. To be an alternative site you need to have content that is on the other side of the argument were like minded people can have they say. Now if you are left leaning that’s fine come and debate with those of us that are right leaning. A site need both sides of the political line

  15. “Biden is still the President of the US.? Wow! I gave him six months, max, before Kamala Harris took over the reins. Fair play to him for hanging in on there.”

    Harri
    Haven’t you heard that the Rightful President is going to be Reinstated in August? He and his acolytes have been pushing this lie line for months, so it’s gotta be true, right?

  16. Or maybe September. Anyways, it will be soon. A petition to the SCOTUS will do it. They are due to strike down Roe v Wade in September, so it will be a busy month, but I’m sure they will fit it in somehow.

  17. Trump can’t just be put back in even if it is proven beyond a shadow of doubt that the election was stolen. It will cause some interesting conundrum in regard to everything passed under Biden, but there won’t be a change of president until 2024 unless Biden drops dead or has a stroke.
