U.S. Major General Comments I have the Japanese forces that demonized the West China’s military development
Data Figure: January 10, Japanese and U.S. warships hold joint naval exercises
2011 年 2 8, Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Mike Mullen issued a new version of the official “National Military Strategy Report”, showing response to the rise of Chinese military intentions: like “strategic priorities and interests of the United States will increasingly come from the Asia-Pacific region”, “continue to closely concerned about China’s military progress, “” help (Japan) Self-Defense Forces to enhance the ability to act outside the “” to further enhance the U.S. military in Southeast Asia and South Asia’s influence, “etc., are explicitly or implicitly the focus point at China .
a long period of time since the US-led Western countries dominated international discourse, China’s military modernization is always a “negative variable,” demonizing China’s military development.
“no more no identification.” Let’s look as “China military threat theory” the main source – the U.S. military, the strategic nuclear offensive forces, missile defense system, continuously updated infrastructure constitutes a “trinity” of strategic forces occupy the absolute unshakable advantage. It is equivalent to the total of strategic nuclear warheads to destroy the world many times, its missile defense system has been hard to break the local formed a shield. Its long-range conventional missile strike force can achieve “real-time global precision strike”, strategic bombers can be implemented quickly global precision strategic bombing. Recently successfully tested the X-37B aircraft can perform several times the speed of sound is difficult to assess the military mission, while more advanced X-47B is accelerating development. U.S. armed forces have deployed around the world, the strength of global operations, and has a global network of military alliance base. The U.S. military has fully realized the information, are moving in the combat platforms, “no” and “network” of the direction to other countries can not match the speed of expansion of the leading margin.
we look at high-profile claim to the “China military threat theory” as a pretext to strengthen the arms of Japan. Since the 1980s, Japan has 90% of self-defense weapons and equipment from Japan’s domestic production, and a considerable part of the highest in the world advanced level. Japan’s space and missile industry has formed a relatively complete system of scientific research and production, especially H2-A and M5 rocket, engineering test satellite and Earth observation satellites, International Space Station with the world advanced level. Developed in Japan, “pro-surge” level of world-class conventional submarines, the “Aegis” destroyers and “Osumi” amphibious landing ship also has distinct characteristics and a high level, a displacement of nearly 2 million tons of “on the” actual frigate on the function with a quasi carriers. Japan has accumulated enough to make 1000 “Hiroshima-level” atomic bomb fuel. If necessary, to 3-6 months in the production of atomic and hydrogen bombs, in the year 1000-2000 to produce medium-range missiles and long-range missiles. Air Force, it has the largest outside the United States in addition to F-15 aircraft, air combat capability of its world-class event in the Asia Pacific region.
naval forces from the construction point of view, in order to maintain the maritime trade routes and energy transport line, including aircraft carriers, including the need for sea power. However, China is the United Nations Security Council five permanent members of the only major country without its own aircraft carrier. Brazil, Spain, Thailand and even aircraft carriers already have, we believe that this is normal. India’s arms purchases dramatically in recent years, in the next five years will soon have three carrier battle group. Western world’s military modernization is far more than China, so why such discrimination and harsh on China?
United States’ fifth-generation stealth fighter – F-22 combat has been formed and deployed in the Asia Pacific region, China has just test its own “F-20″ plane detained on national security threat to the United States and around the hat . U.S. aircraft carrier battle groups in the world, including China’s doorstep in the dangling, and the corresponding development of China’s defense forces was vilified as an impediment to freedom of navigation, this is not “Why, only allowed, not allowed to do anything,” the high-handed logic?
