U.S. Cable News Network Web site on July 4 article, the original title: China should “be curbed,” it
this month coincides with the Kissinger secret visit to Beijing 40 years. That visit and subsequent Nixon’s trip to China, led to a major Cold War alliance. United States temporarily bury the hatchet and join hands to curb Soviet expansion. Today the Soviet Union no longer exists, and the growing strength of China. Some Americans believe that China’s rise can not be peaceful, they should adopt the policy of containment. In fact, many Chinese officials also think that it is current U.S. policy toward China.
but they are wrong. To contain the Soviet Union during the Cold War, there is no trade, and has little to-people exchanges. Today, the United States not only large-scale trade and social exchanges with each other quite closely.
With the Cold War to contain the Soviet Union can not continue to be the basis for US-China relations. The Clinton administration had to develop new policies. I guide the Pentagon in 1994, “East Asian strategic review,” we rejected the idea of ??containing China, for two reasons: If the treat China as an enemy, it is certainly the future will become our enemy. If the Chinese to treat a friend, can not guarantee that the two form a friendship, but at least may have contributed to more positive results. In addition, the United States will be difficult to persuade other countries to join forces against China unless the Chinese tyranny, as did the Soviet Union after World War II. Other countries can join forces to contain China, on China’s own behavior. Ultimately the Clinton administration on China to take “integration of prevention” policy.
I always thought that the 21st century, one major power shift in Asia’s renaissance. This is a natural and commendable progress, because hundreds of millions of people will be so out of poverty. But it also led to concerns that China will threaten the United States. Such fears seem exaggerated, especially considering Asia has its inherent internal balance of power. Japan and India and other countries are more reluctant to Chinese dominance, and therefore welcomed the U.S. presence in the region. Unless China to implement “soft power”, or its rising military and economic strength is likely to neighbors fear in the heart, which seek alliance to contend with, like Mexico and Canada to seek an alliance with China, the United States to compete in North America.
however, only concerned with the prevention part of the China policy is wrong. We are composed together with others will be even greater. This is for the 21st century “smart power” an important part of the policy of containment does not have. Kissinger arrived in Beijing 40 years ago, he opened not only changes in the Cold War, or exposure to a new era in the United States. ▲ (author Joseph ? Chennai, Feng Qiu translation)
