「Anglosphere」天下无不散之筵席,因华为美英闹分家?

和这个世界上存在的其他消息一样,这也对中国人不痛不洋,建议真心的中国人们自己略过不看。我的目的本来就是写给不想当中国人的人看。

对这种人来说,世界的重大消息是不能忽略的,因为和自己命运攸关。

Daily Mail
Republican senators are trying to block 48 of the most advanced fighter jets ever created from being deployed to the UK, over Huawei's involvement in building Britain's 5G wireless network.

The move is being led by Republican senator for Arkansas Tom Cotton, who is attempting to block by law a fleet of F-35A Lightning II aircraft being stationed in the UK.

Mr Cotton, who also sits on the Senate Armed Services Committee, is trying to make an amendment to the 2021 National Defense Authorization Act, which determines defense spending levels.

If it passes it would effectively stop two US squadrons of F-35As being permanently stationed in the UK from next year as planned.

It would ban deployment to countries where perceived 'at-risk' firms like Huawei operate.

A summary at the top of Mr Cotton's proposal states: 'To prohibit the stationing of new aircraft at bases in host countries with at-risk vendors in their 5G or 6G networks.'

Chinese telecoms company Huawei was permitted to build Britain's 5G wireless network by Boris Johnson in January.

The $200 million aircraft project has been nearly a half-decade in preparation and a collapse at this stage would be embarrassing for the British government.

Long-standing preparations have been in the making at RAF Lakenheath, in Suffolk, including 1,200 US airmen.

Mr Cotton currently sits on a committee which handles the legislation, and other Republican signatories are expected, according to a report.

'While the United States will do all we can to maintain and strengthen the special relationship, protecting US airmen and our national security assets must come first,' Mr Cotton told the national newspaper.

The news is the latest between Washington and London over the Prime Minister's decision to allow Huawei access in the UK.

The White House has launched a major review into the decision's impact.

'This is serious. We need to rethink the Huawei decision,' tweeted Conservative MP Tom Tugendhat, who chairs the Foreign Affairs Committee.

As the Government's Huawei decision is yet to become British law, reversal is still possible.

Preventing Huawei from building 'core' parts of the 5G network and capping its non-core market share to 35% means the UK Government is not compromised, it claims.

The Republican Party however does not share that view.

Mr Cotton has previously passed anti-Huawei proposals into law, meaning his amendment is possible.

But to pass it must appear in the version of the legislation passed by the US Senate and the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives, before getting signed off by the US President.

Ultimately, Congress will decide.

F-35s are among the most advanced fighter planes ever made, hence US fears.

One UK defense source speaking to The Telegraph dismissed any fears, saying the F-35s would not use Huawei-built networks.


消息原文就不译了。

总之先介绍一下主角,Tom Cotton,就是那位要废掉粉红们的STEM神教,结果立即惹得卧底品葱的STEM教徒露出“真·中国人”丑陋原形的美国参议员。
(详情见https://pincong.rocks/question/24379)

这位正在参议院推动一项法案:阻止最先进的48架F35A Lightning II部署在英国,如果英国执意要让华为参与英国的5G网络建设。这项部署计划已经经历了5年的准备,而且耗资两亿,如果此时终止,等于让英国政府陷入尴尬。(实质是自己羞辱自己)

Cotton说:“我们愿尽一切努力加强和维持美英的特殊关系,但保护美国军人和美国的国家安全必须是最优先考虑。”

------------------------------------------
现在如果去讨论Cotton的法案通过成功率有多高有多低,那是真正的眼瞎了。对英美的保守主义阵营,这是打破传统的破天荒之举。和天天快快乐乐去找死的左派不同,保守派的自残,非不得已难为之。理解这一点,就能明白这决定之艰难,远超过顶着拜金主义者的压力去对付中国。

这一脚只要迈出(我感觉已经迈出去了),就再也没有挽回可能性。英美这两个通过文化连在一起的Anglosphere核心,今后将只剩一个美国固然是注定的结局,但要是以这种英国自己玩死自己的形式实现,真令人叹息。不为其愚蠢,为“西方的自杀”这个主题再添一让人难忘的写作题材。

看来五眼联盟也快了。

------------------------------------------
让我评价,那就是要自杀的绝对拉不住,这一法案真是太心软了。估计,接下来要和英国进行的美英自贸谈判也顺利不了。现在是下定决心的时候,跟不上就让它死才是正确选择。安全上靠不住,就什么都靠不住。不止是国与国之间,也在人与人之间。

今天看到这一消息,我现在是真心佩服主动从英国迁到美国的历史学家尼尔·弗格森的判断/预知力。

------------------------------------------
其实,我心中暗暗期待英国选择“不受美国威胁,坚持走自己的路”。因为如果那样的话,这个世界今后上演的大戏,想必更加精彩!

姨说,孤立主义比罗马帝国好。罗马统治世界对所有人都好,对罗马人自己是负担♪(^∇^*)
似乎大家不知道DAILYMAIL的習慣
前兩天就有傳出美國要弄英國,剛剛隔壁樓還有人說中國收購英國技術......失去美國的英國應該會很精彩XD。

五眼聯盟大概會剃出英國吧,亞洲區域也另有一個小聯盟出現。
F35都上英国航母了怎么说回就回?

The F35B fleet for Elizabeth is unclear at the moment.

Interested observers shall wait and see.
楼主的发帖质量非常高呀,可以考虑做博客。但是要考虑安全,现在的博客类都不安全了吧?
分析得好,我身在美国,希望美国搞孤立主义,看看这么多年是美国剥削全世界还是服务全世界。
本来就是一群两头吃的国家,一边怪美国为何单打独斗不配合,一边不停地收中国好处?就让中国来带领世界呗,一起体验人类命运共同体吧。

若是能够正常表达,那我肯定是靠写这些吃饭的人之一。

然而在共产主义极权的思想垄断下的中国,这类国内政治、国际政治的文字现在根本就不可能在稍微大一点儿的媒体发,不要说赚钱了。

在墙外写这些,对社会的现实意义其实近于零,最多是供能自己行动的人参考的。换句话说,只对少数与我同类的个人有意义。

所以中文写的这些内容不具备长期持续供应的价值,起码不存在社会意义了。因为这些文字可能对其产生意义的那个社会,现在连尸体也差不多凉了。

刚注册了wordpress,结果一大堆选项还要做决定,还要配合内容。还需要时间想一想。

已经定好的是,如果我开博客,多半不会写这些,就算写也肯定不会用中文写。
又没考虑一下matters,

那不一样性质吗?我不如就品葱上写点儿轻松的。
