Major General Jin Yinan National Defense Strategy Institute, said in an interview with reporters, after a lapse of seven years after the United States to modify the “National Military Strategy” report, the United States is prepared to Iraq, the history of Arab wars into a clear signal, U.S. the eastward shift of strategic focus is directed at a huge interest from the region, we believe that China’s development can not be restrained any Cold War-like alliance.
U.S. “National Military Strategy” is a programmatic document guiding the military strategic
Reporters: U.S. Department of Defense recently released a new version of the “National Military Strategy “Report, then you please to tell you about, this is a what kind of report? Last May, Obama had issued a “National Security Strategy” report, between the intrinsic link with what?
Jin Yinan: The first level is the level of national security strategy. At this level, regularly publish national security assessment report, which is signed by the U.S. President’s report on U.S. national security, is the highest level;
second level is the level of national defense, the defense strategic-level report is also regularly report, signed by the U.S. Secretary of Defense;
third level is the level of military strategy report. By Joint Chiefs Chairman (equivalent to national armed forces chief of staff) signed.
the highest level of U.S. national security strategy report, involving all aspects of the national security; Department of Defense report signed by the national defense strategy, involving the defense of this report is talking about military issues.
Reporters: with military-related.
Jin Yinan: Yes, mainly associated with the military, and military issues, operational issues, military construction, including the development of equipment and other very specific issues related to the military.
United States re-issued the “National Military Strategy,” that want Iraq, A war relief
Reporter: We noticed that the new U.S. National Military Strategy report is the first time since 2004 to make changes. From now on, the report of the biggest changes in what areas? Its release is that the United States military strategy is undergoing major adjustments?
Jin Yinan: military strategy report released this long interval, which is unusual. The reason so long the key is from the U.S. point of view, the basic military strategy to solve the problem. National security strategy and defense strategy of these two levels, covering a large number of military problems on the inside, that this issue is resolved.
was the biggest problem facing the United States, that is, his national security strategy and defense strategy under the guidance of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan wars. These two wars are a great political battle with the means, the United States since the Iraq war in 2003, the focus has been in the Iraq war issue. Within in a very long time, the basic U.S. military strategy report idle.
now, the United States after more than seven years later re-released assessment of military strategy, is actually a very clear signal that the U.S. is in Iraq and Afghanistan, the quagmire in which two partially relieved.
think the United States to a comprehensive assessment of the military can do, when to introduce new military targets, the development of new military point of growth, but also the past history, including the war in Iraq, Afghanistan, can begin to put them into the history, this is a very clear signal.
U.S. strategic interests are directed eastward from
Correspondent: It is said that the new U.S. “National Military Strategy,” the key word is China, which, how do you think?
Jin Yinan: As some media analysts said, the key words of this report is China, China, or China. Chinese point of course not by much point here, with its large number of other languages, use the “one country” such a language, such as “some countries and regions are involved in the development of anti-blocking ability,” and so, with these words on behalf of a known (China) .
From this point of view is a big turning the United States. It completely for the Chinese, I think not all. All military services are for the political, economic services, the military is not alone in all the political and economic than military, which is why the U.S. military strategy review for so long did not come out, is its long service in the United States in international politics needs to serve the Middle East, Afghanistan and other needs.
today that the Middle East problem can come to an end, that Afghanistan’s problems began to enter the address of the link. United States is focused on what? Is the focus of the world’s future economic development in East Asia, Western Pacific in this area increased from China, Korea, Japan, and then to Singapore, Vietnam, the band, including economic development, India is the world’s most active, the focus of the world’s economic future.
includes not only China, of course, including India, Japan, including many Asian emerging economies, this development has to be destined to become the world’s economic center of the future, of course, must be the world’s future political center. In such circumstances, the U.S. military focus must be adjusted to the region, and U.S. interests in the region, to adapt to future status.
here of course, the trend against China, including in Japan, the USFK, as well as the deployment to Afghanistan. But that came completely against China, I think not, it is not so defined.
U.S. strategic center of gravity eastward, is completely against the trend of the world’s great benefits from. Because the best interests of points, the biggest economic growth in the region, so to complete this transfer.
China’s development can not be like the Cold War coalition to curb
Reporters: U.S. strategic center of gravity changes, will undoubtedly intensify the tension region. China as a nation Asia-Pacific region, should be how to deal with this adjustment?
Jin Yinan: the adjustment of the United States a decade ago, before the war in Afghanistan has been put forward, then the international community has been very much the comments. “9.11″ delay the actual transfer of the United States, delay in the Middle East, the West Asia region, delay time is very long.
eastward shift of U.S. strategy is inevitable. In this regard fully prepared to do. In the Asian region does not exclude any power to enter, as long as the region’s prosperity and development to help are welcome. Also do not want the region to engage in any country or group of military alliances in the region of dominating, this is not enough.
cooperation with China, the United States can get enormous benefits, confrontation with China is also not good for him a lot. U.S. security report released, I think that there is no need to be so uptight.
I think the United States recently proposed “anti-access” problem, some scholars say, this is mainly for the “hidden F-20 fighter” flight, the United States believes China’s military has developed rapidly, military technology developed rapidly, worried about China, “anti-access” to prevent the United States outside the region, so the United States on China to implement more powerful pressure.
“anti-access” is not proposed by the United States today. In 2002, “9.11″ incident just after the U.S. national security strategy report was put forward to the two concepts, and regional anti-access block. These two concepts in fact from 1999 to 2000 has been dished out, is for the Chinese came. In the United States as a preventive strategy.
of U.S. military strategy report came out, on the one hand to increase the containment of China; the other hand, also need to cool and objective, not to boast a very big problem, not the situation very hanging, not to Today, every action, both the United States counter-link, which is cool and objective evaluation of this report is very important.
Reporters: using now a popular saying that China should remain calm.
Jin Yinan: this report was not much new content, mostly the old formulation, concentrated formulation of the old narrative about it. From the reports that I consider not what is not the past, including the Americans say “anti” and “area denial”, etc., which are put forward to 2002, not new content.
the one hand, through this report, recognizing that the U.S. military developments in this area, the military center of gravity, gradually eastward in the strategic center of gravity; the other hand, we need calm, out of a confidence, a sense of confidence We firmly believe that China’s development can not be any so-called Cold War-like alliance of containment.
