type II in Hong Kong, 16 published an article rating agency said that U.S. arms sales to troubled Sino-US relations is an old problem. From the perspective of international law, to an ambassadorial level diplomatic relations with their countries with an administrative arms sales, its absurdity is self-evident.
article said that the U.S. arms sales to Taiwan are such as domestic law, Congress factors, the strategic balance and many other considerations, but its most fundamental reason is still demand for China-US strategic mutual differences. The U.S. is planning to sell diesel-electric submarines, in fact, the United States has stopped production for many years, was commissioned by European countries like OEM, but the Netherlands, Germany and other countries have not received this list. The attitude of European and American arms sales to the differences, is evident. This is so, the root cause is that the United States count on national strength, China is the United States have more strategic needs, not to fall out of Sino-US relations.
But the problem is that now the situation has changed dramatically, demand for China-US strategic shift in trend was obvious. In the economic recovery, the dollar stable, non-proliferation, climate warming and other important global issues, the United States needed China’s cooperation and assistance. As the “Washington Post” pointed out 10 years ago, Bill Clinton’s visit to China, the United States paying the money owed to China, less than the money owed to Spain, and now Obama Ma Zhuzheng under the United States, the already high debt to China $ 800 billion. China has become America’s largest creditor. “China’s rise” is recognized in the past decade the world’s most important events. The current rate continues, China’s economy than the United States only 20 years to do.
article pointed out that while the rise of comprehensive national strength and influence to raise the overall, national decline the other side is a comprehensive diplomatic strategy after the contraction. In this case, the latter actually still follow the original model, a Administrative Region of the forward sale of those weapons, the absurd is the self-evident. In this case, China’s anti-system ideas and methods should be more proactive stance resolutely fight back. The Chinese military officials have proposed, involving arms sales to the U.S. companies to be severe sanctions. This is a reasonable, beneficial, and restrained counter measures.
article analysis, the Obama administration proposed arms sales to Taiwan of the time, size and performance are worth noting. For example, Obama came to power for a whole year already, has not yet been officially announced arms sales to Taiwan, which is unique in history. In addition, the types of arms sales are mainly limited to defensive weapons. This shows that the Obama administration’s arms sales to Taiwan have increased significantly scruples.
article said, also, must be recognized that, for China, and Taiwan with defensive weapons, offensive weapons, there is no substantial difference in the consequences. Because even the most radical “Taiwan independence” elements, did not dare to attack the mainland’s first realization of the “Taiwan independence.” The main problem facing the continent is the “Taiwan independence” elements “use force to ensure independence.” In this case, the so-called “defensive weapons” to the consequences of reunification with no essential difference between offensive weapons.
