According to the U.S. “DefPro” Defense News published January 11, China’s military Science Association Deputy Secretary-General, Major General Luo Yuan People’s Liberation Army signed the comment on articles. The article said that U.S. President Barack Obama released a study entitled, “continued U.S. global leadership: the 21st century defense priorities,” the strategy report. He stressed at the Pentagon: Although the diminution of the defense budget, the United States will continue to seek to maintain in the world “military advantage”, and military center toward the Asia-Pacific region.
why the United States at this time plans to move its military center of the Asia-Pacific region? What is its purpose? We should should respond?
1, the United States will turn its military center of the purpose of the Asia-Pacific region
the United States will turn its military center in Asia Pacific has the following four objectives:
First, as the report title shows, it is to “maintain U.S. global leadership” to ensure the absolute safety of the United States, and to maintain its overwhelming dominance. United States intends to control the region, highlighting its role; absolutely not permitted against the United States in the Asia-Pacific political – economic – the pattern of security force presence.
Second, it wants through the use of rapid economic growth in the Asia-Pacific region to address domestic economic difficulties. Although the world economy is sluggish, but the debt crisis in the Asia-Pacific region and Europe’s troubled contrast, has become the engine of global economic growth accelerated. Half of U.S. overseas trade and investment in the Asia Pacific region; Therefore, the U.S. strategic focus must be tilted in the Asia Pacific region.
Third, it wants to create trouble in the Asia Pacific region, and the use of contradictory alliance. In addition to its existing Asia-Pacific military alliance of five major outside the United States has recently stepped up with some of the South China Sea declaration of sovereignty of the country’s military relations. One of the purposes of this act, that is to send a message in these countries: despite huge cuts in military spending, but the U.S. will honor their commitment to their security.
Fourth, it would like the overall layout of the Asia-Pacific region to contain China’s rise. Some U.S. politicians trying to claim that this move is not for the Chinese to cover up the truth, but their efforts more to expose the fact that this more clear. Consider this fact: The U.S. is to strengthen it with five major allies, and adjust it to deploy military bases in the Asia Pacific region, looking for more bases closer to China, to develop more effective strategic partners and resources, strengthen strategic reconnaissance, and against China held joint military exercises. Who would believe that the U.S. is not doing all this for China? Is it not the return of the Cold War mentality?
2, the United States wants the same thing, whether it can do is another matter
United States in its strategic defense of the current times of austerity strategic adjustment seems very aggressive, but in fact it is used as an offensive defense tactics; There are three reasons:
First, the strategic adjustment is a late adjustment. Kosovo war, the United States believe they have basically solved the problem of the Balkans; so they can begin to be tilted on the strategic layout, from Europe to Asia-Pacific regions. However, the “9-11 Incident” has been forced to postpone the start of the U.S. strategic adjustment. In this sense, the strategic adjustment of the United States is a continuation of the last adjustment. This does not mean the United States has “complete withdrawal from Europe, all of its energy into Asia.” Geo-strategists who believe Speakman dominated Europe and Asia, whoever controls the fate of the world. Because the balance of power in Europe and Asia has a direct impact on the United States, Europe, the United States will certainly not be ignored, but will continue to “monitor”, and at the same time in Europe and Asia are very aware that it will be largely decentralized strategic forces.
Second, the strategic adjustment is sluggish economic conditions in the United States under the useless move. Addition to responding to a serious confrontation with the Soviet Union during the Cold War and the Vietnam War the strategic adjustment of late, most of the strategic adjustment of both the United States, its strategic expansion in the period made. However, this adjustment is carried out under the burden of the economic crisis, the passive adjustment, economic decline, high unemployment and huge budget cuts, combined together to form the 2012 U.S. presidential election, the harsh reality. U.S. military has been supported by its economic power. Economy is a problem, lack of funds to the United States does not have any choice but to cut troops, and to postpone including large aircraft carriers, including weapons development program. The existence of these enormous difficulties and even its own military research and development, the United States in the Asia-Pacific region how much money? Please note that adjustments also need to deploy money.
Third, the adjustment of the U.S. war in Iraq and Afghanistan, the strategic contraction. These two wars are on the U.S. financial and material resources to spend enormous, while the consequences of war that have long plagued this country. The more anti-terrorism efforts, terrorist activities, the more intense. Although the armed conflict has ended, but the new “light” is fermented. Realizing not adhere to the “winning two wars at the same time,” this strategy, the United States had no choice, not into a new strategy: “to ensure victory in a war, and to stop another war.” At this moment, the United States has ten fingers can not stretch it to be clenched fist. This is the so-called “surface threats, inner fear.” Because the U.S. has built too many enemies, it can not be an effective defense. “Flooded gourd vine, gourd will remain floating on the water.” If the United States military strategy centers to its Asia-Pacific region, in its “backyard fire”, it how to deal with?
3, alert and calm is the shift towards a key U.S. strategic center
center of the face of the current U.S. strategy shift, China’s need to remain vigilant and calm. It must be possible to prepare themselves for, it will not make a fuss, stick to their development. As long as this country prosperous, powerful army, while creating a favorable external environment, the power will not be any threat to China. What the United States fear China? It is fear that China’s strong and prosperous, so it tried every means to interfere with China’s development.
However, China will be the impact of these disturbances, focus and development. The United States also afraid of? It is afraid of bad Chinese have a good external environment. Therefore, the pressure on the government to the individual, small group and to hinder China’s development. In response, China should deal with in many countries, foreign policy and the use of this tactic make more friends. In this regard, China should have absolute confidence, as people around the world as well-known, China is a peace-loving country. The United States who have been threatened countries are now cooperating with the United States regardless of their own interests. However, their cooperation is virtually impossible. On the surface and harmony in these countries, but in fact Germany and the United States centrifugal back.
America’s most afraid of? China has a strong national defense. However, China’s deployment of defense forces to self-protection, it is very reasonable and very legitimate, it does not have any errors. When you accuse China is a threat, you should, first of all clear that China is not a threat. This is China’s strategic center of the United States shifted its Asia-Pacific region response. ★ (Si years)
