Sky News host James Morrow says the US is leaving the Pacific “naked and exposed” to the “depredations” of China’s communist People’s Liberation Army after reports its sole remaining aircraft carrier in the region is expected to move to the Middle East.
“We all know that America under the Biden administration has gotten weaker,” Mr Morrow said.
“And we are seeing it happen militarily as well.
“The sole remaining US aircraft carrier in the Pacific is being sent to the Middle East to help with the withdrawal of American troops.
“It needs all hands on deck to get the US out of a failed military adventure.”
Mr Morrow said while the aircraft carrier’s repositioning didn’t mean China would invade Taiwan tomorrow, President Xi Jinping would be taking notice.
“If the US no longer projects power into the Pacific, someone else will rush in to fill the gap,” he said.
“And it raises another question, too: If the US military isn’t about being geared up to fight America’s foes, who is it fighting?
“That’s where things get really disturbing.
“If you look closely, it seems the US military is now spending more time ferreting out ideological wrong-think than readying itself to fight its enemies.”
