US, China defence chiefs meet in Cambodia to dial back tensions since Pelosi’s Taiwan visit
Updated
1 Hour Ago
SIEM REAP, Cambodia – US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin met his Chinese counterpart Wei Fenghe in Cambodia on Tuesday, as the two sides move to keep tensions in check.

The meeting on the sidelines of a conference of defence ministers in Siem Reap is the first between Mr Austin and Mr Wei since June, before US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan, infuriating Beijing.

But China and the United States have since moved to lower the temperature with meetings between top officials.

On Nov 14, Presidents Joe Biden and Xi Jinping met for three hours at a Group of 20 summit in Bali, the first in-person talks between the leaders of the world’s two largest economies since they each became president.

That was followed by a meeting between Mr Xi and US Vice-President Kamala Harris during an Asia-Pacific summit in Bangkok.

Ms Harris reinforced Mr Biden’s message that “we must maintain open lines of communication to responsibly manage the competition between our countries”, a White House official said.

Not long ago the US gov declared a "pivot to Asia" , while officers in the USMC made plans to restructure their organization for fighting the Chinese on the various islands in the region, to the death.

Readout of Secretary of Defense Travel to Cambodia
Nov. 23, 2022 |

Pentagon Press Secretary Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder provided the following readout: 

Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin III concluded his visit to Cambodia today where he attended the 9th ASEAN Ministers’ Meeting (ADMM)-Plus, which every U.S. Secretary of Defense has participated in since the group’s inception. During the ADMM-Plus, Secretary Austin reaffirmed the United States’ commitment to working with ASEAN to address the complex set of challenges confronting the region today — from terrorism to nuclear proliferation to maritime security threats. The Secretary expressed concern about ongoing provocations and unsafe operational behavior, especially in the South China Sea. He welcomed the steps taken by numerous ADMM-Plus member states to address dangerous and provocative actions taken by North Korea, Myanmar, and Russia, which threaten regional peace and security. 
  
Secretary Austin highlighted the steps the Department is taking alongside partners to bring greater transparency and openness to the region, such as through co-chairing the ADMM-Plus Experts’ Working Group on Maritime Security with Thailand. He also underscored the United States’ investments in the region’s future leadership, including through a new initiative that will provide emerging Southeast Asian defense leaders with unprecedented opportunities for training and professional military education. 

Secretary Austin met with the Cambodian Defense Minister, who hosted the ADMM-Plus, and held bilateral engagements with the Defense Ministers of Vietnam, India, the Philippines, and the People’s Republic of China. Throughout his visit, he reiterated the United States’ deep commitment to working alongside allies and partners to support our shared vision for a free and open Indo-Pacific.

Absolute pivot.

Marines are now the amphibious force. Take and hold islands. Be a thorn that forces the PLAN, PLAF, and PLA to divert resources from the invasion to deal with them, not fight to the death.

F-35s are now being delivered to the Navy and Air Force as well as to US Allies in increasing numbers.

Amphibious assault ships are being retasked to carry these fighters and act as ‘baby carriers’ to supplement or even act as an independent strike group.

The primary focus of the US military is no longer fighting brush fire wars against cave dwelling terrorists, but a near peer adversary.

Walk softly but carry a big stick.
