U.S. “Space Review” site 23 revealed that the Pentagon has just released the “2010 China Development Report of military and security” (ie ” China Military Power Report “) deliberately left out some of the Chinese military, especially in the field of space key, and this is the Pentagon’s overall political and security considerations for deliberately caused.
reported that “China Military Power Report,” often in the preamble and the text between the blank page at the left, emblazoned with “This page intentionally blank” character, to prevent the forwarding and copying in the process of reporting was wrong that the loss of an important state secrets. This model actually said the Pentagon official documents of a real consideration: many of the important information about China’s military can not appear in the “China military report”.
analysis of the website content of the report this year that the U.S. war on the strength of China’s space is very limited description, sometimes not continuous, so it may be deliberately hiding the contents of the blank page. For example, in 2003, “China Military Power Report,” that China is developing anti-satellite weapon, but after three consecutive years, no mention of the report. In 2007, Chinese anti-satellite test, the Pentagon says it has been tracking the Chinese in this situation. Clearly, the Pentagon does not know the situation, but to protect intelligence sources, China clearly does not want to know what the United States. In addition, in 2009, “China Military Power Report,” mentioned that China is developing a small satellite technology. This “parasitic” small satellite is a new anti-satellite means, in recent years, the U.S. private blog, a great deal of research articles have discussed, but this year, “China Military Power Report,” are deliberately left out of these. In addition, the report on China’s support for “anti-ship missile” and other high-tech weapons, space reconnaissance, command and communications support capabilities were also introduced limited.
According to reports, the Pentagon report on Chinese military power are two versions of open and secret. Can be downloaded from the site is an open version of the data, the data are taken from media reports and public research institutes materials. Its main function is to influence public opinion. Just as the 1980s, the Pentagon will be published every other year, a nicely bound “Soviet Military Power Report.” Pentagon officials do not want to do, but they are required to take this as Reagan’s defense policy to provide public support. Now, Pentagon officials told Congress, politicians ask them to periodically release with “propaganda” means that the type of report is somewhat inconsistent.
there are many things the U.S. military did not put in the public version. On the one hand, if one were to disclose the confidential documents only appear in the Chinese data or content that China will inevitably come into contact with the suspect file to the United States betrayed intelligence officer. If some information is only in Chinese military telephone, fax, encrypted document appeared, the United States announced, China’s first reaction must change your password, inventory related to the system’s security vulnerabilities. This is tantamount to exposing intelligence sources. On the other hand, some content will be disclosed in the U.S. strategy toward China real plot. United States, “Washington Times” has reported that in 2010, “China Military Power Report,” a significant reduction in the “China’s development of anti-ship ballistic missiles,” the content. In recent years, the U.S. military has always stressed the PLA’s “anti-access” capability to continuously improve, if the anti-ship ballistic missiles too much content into the public version, the report will involve more or less how to break the “anti-access” the contents of the will expose the core of U.S. strategic vision.
