Chen Hu said the strategy of defensive denial, China has not explicitly use
Data Figure: China’s new naval warships formation
6 21, Japan, “Asahi Shimbun” published an article about the three parts: First, China is strengthening its own verification of force; the second is that China is implementing the anti-access strategy to restrict the Japan-US military alliance; three Japanese officers claimed that the Chinese navy now has become more powerful than the Japanese Maritime Self Defense Force.
In this article we see a term called “anti-access strategy.” In fact the most recent period, “anti-intervention strategy” often appear in the media. Of course, the more places it is called “denial strategy.” Such a new term, may cause you a lot of attention.
this denial strategy in the end is what? What is its essence? China refused to stop in the end there is no implementation of the strategy? Chen Hu Troops for your current interpretation of “denial strategy.”
“denial strategy” in the end is what?
If you search on the Internet “denial strategy”, there will be many answers. We will find the original source from the United States and Japan are basically the media. “Denial strategy” Another argument is that “anti-intervention strategy.” In fact, whether it is “denial strategy” or “anti-access strategy,” are the same thing. Described in accordance with the Americans, “denial strategy” is that China is now trying to develop a force, while these forces were put into action to stop the U.S. military into the Taiwan Strait and China’s coastal areas, or coastal waters .
the term of the original source is the U.S. strategy to engage in some scholars. Scholars like these strategies create some new terms, whether it is called “anti-strategy” or “denial strategy”, are they innovative new concepts, new terminology.
“denial strategy” of essence in the end?
“denial strategy” real is what is it? A discerning eye to see that in real terms, it is not military threat from China’s accent. It should be said, “denial strategy” or “anti-intervention strategy,” China’s military threat of the latest topics. In recent years, China’s military threat will always introduce some new topics, can be said that often push the new, and attract everyone’s eye. And this denial strategy is the latest topic.
a deeper level, the substance in the end refused to stop what is strategy? I would like to cite two examples:
First Opium War in 1840, when the British navy came to China along the coast, they choose the first target is a breakthrough in Guangzhou. But in a few battles to fight off the coast of Guangzhou, the British eat a few small losses and found that this place does not suddenly break, then all the way north along the coast of China, captured the Dinghai, then moved into the direction of Xiang Beijing and Tianjin. In this military pressure forced by the Qing government signed the modern history of China and the United Kingdom’s first humiliating treaty – “Treaty of Nanking.” From this historical event, we found that, in fact, it is because China does not have the time of the British Navy’s “denial” in addition to the ability of China’s coastal areas, this way, the British fleet in the long search for weaknesses in China’s coastal areas, initiate breakthrough of the attack.
Another example occurred in the 60 years thing, that is, after the outbreak of the Korean War, the U.S. military after the Inchon landing rapid northward advance. This time the Chinese government has repeatedly warned the United States, Prime Minister Zhou Enlai, India’s ambassador to the United States through the messenger, telling them not to cross the military demarcation line. But the U.S. government turned a deaf ear on this issue. Then U.S. Secretary of State said, it appears that the Chinese people want to participate in this board, but if you want to participate in this board, you should reveal his hand in the end how many good cards. After the Americans do not take into account the statement of the Chinese people, breaking the military demarcation line, and all the way northward and struck the Yalu River, the Korean War broke out. In this case we see that China was not yet in the international performance of such a strength, but not “denial” of foreign troops in areas around China’s large-scale war. So when people think about this war, the time for action, not the China factor into account. Results in a close neighbor of China such a war broke out, during the war, we have to pay hundreds of thousands of casualties.
From these two examples we can see, the so-called “denial strategy”, which means that the external threats, “denial” away from their coast, the surrounding area, which is above all a capabilities, require a determination to act. And this ability and determination to act, in essence, represents a deterrent. Because it describes in the coastal or the surrounding area, in fact, embodies a threat to foreign countries, foreign intrusion defense capabilities. From this point on, whether it is “denial strategy” or “anti-intervention strategy”, in fact with a defensive nature.
whether China is pursuing “strategic denial”?
“denial strategy” is the term U.S. strategic scholars manufactured, whether domestic or present within the military, are not explicitly make such a strategy. Americans are also in accordance with their series of logic and analysis, manufacturing of such a term. But I think, from the other side, have this “anti-intervention” or “denial” capability for China, it is quite necessary.
today’s China is a country most reluctant to fight, because we are in a period of rapid economic development, comprehensive national strength in a rapid growth stage. Sufficient to solve our own development and to overcome all the problems facing. Once the face of war, even in some of the outbreak of war in our surrounding areas, is bound to the rapid development of the process we have a huge impact, so from this logic sense, China is a need for peace and do not want war. However, you want to have peace, want to reject war, must have an ability. In this sense, this “anti-access” capability, and “denial” capabilities, China today is precisely to maintain peace, against war must be an ability and determination.
