U.S. Defense News website article on March 1, the original question: a clear grasp of China’s intentions
Some people think that China’s military modernization is a natural, gradual and beneficial, it was also worrying given the conclusions. Despite the differences in views of experts, but focus on the Soviet armed forces during the Cold War was the kind of strong debate in the United States today when the Chinese army look surprisingly missing. This lack of concern, because the conventional wisdom may be wrong. Many of the Chinese intentions and military capabilities are still important issues unresolved.
Most experts believe that China, through its vague intentions and military capabilities to protect national interests, we can not only be eloquent words to accept as a fact, we must verify the identification. As China’s national strength, this careful analysis is more important than ever.
recently, the U.S. Pacific Command, said Robert ? Willard, of peace and stability in China’s interest, rather than to challenge the United States in the region, the new freedom of movement between the hard military capabilities agreement. “China’s declared defense-oriented to help build a ‘peace and harmony’ goal of building military power in Asia, it seems that the expansion of its sophisticated weapons do not match.” Willard questioned the traditional view of the concerns of the story, with the former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld warning that the same strain.
have claimed that the PLA is to modernize from a low starting point, and its rising military expenditure is the economic development of accessories. From 1975 to 1985, such judgments seem reasonable. But by 1998, a measure of PLA modernization has significantly different requirements: challenging the United States and its allies in the region’s military capabilities. In 2004, China’s leaders disclosed the PLA’s modernization and economic development goals are equally important. Surprisingly, many professional commentators went so far as to ignore this important priorities change.
announced China’s defense budget is far less precise, but the public discussion recently on this end, the expert group seems to give up to clarify this issue. October 2009, Willard revealed that “Every year China’s military capabilities are beyond our forecast of most intelligence officers who are to grow at an unprecedented rate.” However, this did not pay sufficient attention to different views.
Willard Chinese intentions and military capabilities on the comments accurate positioning. If you can not accurately assess this matter, the United States will pay a high price. And comfortably accept the traditional view than, for different views of the Chinese armed forces will better guide the United States to make decisions. People’s Liberation Army’s future success can not simply be measured in its history. The United States should start on the future of China’s military fair, professional discussions, or they will be shallow and even dangerous. ▲ (Hua had translated)
