Beijing has accused the US of flying military planes near China’s coast and disguising them as civilian airliners by changing transponder codes at least 100 times this year. The accusation comes at a time of heightened tensions between the two powers, which has increased US military activity in the Indo-Pacific.
The Beijing-based think tank South China Sea Strategic Situation Probing Initiative (SCSPI) has recorded instances of the US cloaking its spy planes as airliners.
According to the SCSPI, between September 8th and 10th, US spy planes disguised as Malaysian aircraft flew over the disputed Paracel Islands in the South China Sea, the Taiwan Strait, and the Yellow Sea near China’s coast.
The think tank warned in its report that this practice increases the danger to actual civilian aircraft in the region, risking misidentification. The SCSPI said the US has a record of changing transponder numbers when it flies reconnaissance in places like Iran and Venezuela.
“It’s a common trick for the US Air Force to impersonate the transponder code of civilian aircraft from other countries … It is of a vile nature,” China’s foreign ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said. “We urge the US to immediately stop such dangerous provocations, to avoid accidents from happening in the sea and air.”

Malaysian? Ever since Malaysian plane disappeared without trace — it became fashionable to expose Malaysian flights to danger. Ukrainian air traffic control sent Malaysian passenger plane into a war zone, resulting in it bring shot down. Now, hoping to establish that what looks like a Malaysian plane may in fact be an US military plane — hoping somebody shoots it down by mistake.
Its a lot worse than you can possibly imagine……..They were not hoping it got shot down by mistake, they intentionally shot it down.
MH17 was shot down by a Ukrainian airforce SU25 fighter and covered up by Western criminal governments. UN/NATO/EU are all international criminal organisations.
I could never work out why MH17’s course was deviated over a war zone. Now i know it was so that NATO could occupy the Donbass. Cold blooded premeditated mass murder, NATO purposely shot down MH17 as a cover to place 9000 troops in the Donbass.
The leading independent investigator of the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 disaster, has revealed breakthrough evidence of tampering and forging of prosecution materials; suppression of Ukrainian Air Force radar tapes; and lying by the Dutch, Ukrainian, US and Australian governments.
The Malaysian Government also revealed how it got in the way of attempts the US was organizing during the first week after the crash to launch a NATO military attack on eastern Ukraine. The cover story for that was to rescue the plane, passenger bodies, and evidence of what had caused the crash. In fact, the operation was aimed at defeating the separatist movements in the Donbass, and to move against Russian-held Crimea.
It was revealed that a secret Malaysian military operation took custody of the MH17 black boxes on July 22, preventing the US and Ukraine from seizing them. The Malaysian operation, revealed by the Malaysian Army colonel who led it, eliminated the evidence for the camouflage story, reinforcing the German Government’s opposition to the armed attack, and forcing the Dutch to call off the invasion on July 27.
Why was MH17 altitude reduced? For the record the SU25 manufacturers have indicated that a variant of the SU25 sold to Ukraine can operate at the height levels that MH17 was reduced to, that of course is the point in asking why the decrease in altitude, ie to make it within strike range of the variant SU25 sold to Ukraine.
For the damage to occur on the left side of MH17 (as it flies) it is impossible for the damage to occur as it has if it was BUK missile fired from the location indicated, ie the JIT report is complete fiction.
Also why was a large group of air defense systems deployed to the militia-held regions just before the tragedy? Especially considering that the self-defense forces have no planes. Also on the day of the crash Kiev intensified Kupol-M1 9S18 radar activity, key BUK targeting system components. Where they providing targeting information to the SU-25’s?
The only doubt I have was that it was an SU25. The SU25 is a ground attack aircraft with a non pressurised cockpit and could never have flown high enough for long enough to reliably intercept a commercial airliner. An SU27 would be an infinitely more likely tool for this operation.
