Chen Hu: U.S. military threat to the Chinese navy Web site to seek financial speculation
Data Figure: China’s naval base docked naval submarine
improved 039 Editor’s note: May 10, Japan,” Tokyo Shimbun “published an article entitled” Russia’s naval nuclear deal with China to enable the military expansion, “the articles; the same day, Singapore’s “Straits Times” wrote that the development of China’s naval forces are gradually changing the military balance in Asia.
the same time there have been two basically the same argument about the Chinese navy’s report, which to some extent on the reaction to go out to the media on the development of China’s naval forces concerned. So, what these reports have the background? The development of China’s naval forces just how “horrible”? Chinese Navy provoke anyone? This week, “Chen Hu Troops” with you to analyze the true intentions behind these reports.
recent years, some foreign media hype frequent Chinese Navy’s remarks. Chinese Navy’s every move, “affects” the heart of numerous foreign media: “China is developing aircraft carrier, submarine technology development in China, the Chinese navy out of the” first island chain ‘, the Chinese anti-ship missile technology continues to improve “and other phrases frequently hit the newspapers.
based on the above conclusion is a substantial development of China’s naval forces, breaking the military balance in Asia Pacific, and even wider on the surrounding countries pose a threat.
this is the “China threat theory” the old tune, but we need to look through these reports clear intent behind the news.
Generally, we read the news will look at the title, then look at the content. However, to more in-depth analysis, looking at the title and the content is not enough, but also its source.
then, more than two on the development of China’s naval forces news source what is it?
Japan, “Tokyo Shimbun” published in Russia to re-enable the large cruiser against China reports mentioned at the beginning: “newspaper from the Russian Pacific Fleet, a senior government official was informed by …” text in the comment content, are also known as “a high-Palace” argument. The article wrote: “The official said: ‘the waters in the Far East in order to maintain a military balance with China, the most urgent task is to realize that remote navigation, and strong nuclear attack submarine’s return’.” Reporting is based on a whole we can not verification of the “Russian Pacific Fleet officials.” “A Takamiya,” Who? We come to check. Obviously, this is a vague source.
we look at “the rise of the Chinese Navy to change the balance” in this article. This is a report from Singapore’s “Straits Times.” You may find this source is normal, but we look at the author – a senior fellow at Singapore’s Southeast Asian visit Michael Richardson. Michael Richardson, who is? We might search on the Internet, if we enter in the search engine the name of Michael Richardson, plus the suffix “China’s Navy”, the results will surprise us: we will see a lot of Michael Richardson, the rapid development of China’s navy threat to neighboring countries, to change the balance of power in the article. Gives the impression that Michael Richardson is a major Chinese naval hype “Trader.”
message through both the source and the author’s analysis we can see that these reports should have a certain background, or by some forces, to operate. So, is the background and strength come from?
Coincidentally, in the end of April we saw this article U.S. Navy Web site says the U.S. Navy Los Angeles class attack submarine, “Louisville” was on April 26 left for the Western Pacific Region, the expected six-month deployment to strengthen the Asia-Pacific air and sea forces. The report also said while the U.S. Navy set up five special team to the U.S. Pacific Command to provide strategic research, the study of China, India, Korea, Japan, Korea and other cross-country anti-terrorism issues.
as the U.S. Navy’s official website, the U.S. Navy site this article despite publicly expressed a number of countries for study, but the main content or for the Chinese. This article summarizes China’s naval modernization of three areas: First, anti-ship warfare, and second, the sea air and the third is power projection capability. Concluded that: the next 5-10 years, China will continue to move beyond the Taiwan Strait to build a navy that goal. Long-range cruise missiles, advanced reconnaissance systems and data link communications capability, will become an important future development of Chinese naval “force multiplier.”
news release from the view of the time, an article published in the former U.S. Navy site. We can see, this story is actually a series of hype after leading the Chinese navy reported. Take a closer look we will find, Michael Richardson wrote, “the rise of the Chinese Navy to change the balance,” a text in many of the arguments are derived from the U.S. Navy Web site story. As a result, we have these “thread” link will find this wave of hype the root of the Chinese navy.
internal Navy report on the study as why go through the official website of the U.S. Navy? This problem may be relatively simple. U.S. Navy is currently facing a turning point: the power to cut or increase investment. In this case, the U.S. Navy is necessary to create a terrible “threat” for future development, may obtain campaign funds.
In fact, the crux of all this. In the U.S. release of this information, follow the trend of the forces of speculation either have their own calculations, or is some kind of power front “Trader.”
5 10, we see another story, this story comes from “The Australian” website: “China’s navy is very natural development.” The reported source of information is the Royal Australian Navy Commander Ruth Crane, he publicly expressed the Australian military’s understanding of the development of China Navy. Ruth Crane in the news release mentioned in the naval forces in China’s development process, the same as how to do an Asia-Pacific countries should be how to do it. He said: “The development of China’s naval capabilities … I do not think it particularly unusual or threatening.” He also suggested that in order to make the relationship between the two countries in defense, closer and greater transparency, should be the rapid expansion of Australian warships in China Navy to hold more joint exercises. He also emphasized that increasing the number of naval port visits to each other is also very important.
Ikunori reported comparison, we can see, the Australian Navy Commander related reports more reliable, and he raised the issue in a manner that is in the process of development of China’s naval forces, neighboring countries and the wider countries within a normal reaction.
news, commentary, we can see every day, do not think that these news and comments are correct. Any information has its point and tendentious, analysis of the link between them is only that we can find a relatively realistic answer.
