When a slight warming of Sino-US military relations, the United States was out played up “China threat.” U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates announced the Pentagon had just visited China for the year (see September 14 Japan-related reports), Washington think tank “Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments,” President Andrew Craig Pineiweiqi in the U.S. “The Wall Street Journal” the author said, China continued to strengthen its “anti-access” capability, to prevent his country into its regional stakeholders, taking into account China’s missile threat against the current East Asian waters is becoming a U.S. warships and aircraft of the “vacuum”, the United States in the region ally being “of Finland” (Editor’s note: During the Cold War, the Western countries believe that Finland is to maintain nominal independence, the Soviet Union actually had to follow the rules to set foreign policy).
said China’s anti-intervention capacity of Guam
Krepinevich is a U.S. think tank “Centre for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments,” Chairman of the Center mainly for defense planning and investment strategy research, and provide policy advice to the Pentagon and consultancy services. Pentagon assessment Krepinevich, “as good a defense analyst and innovative military thinkers, including Defense Secretary Robert Gates that he has been widely recognized, including.” Krepinevich in the September 11 ” Wall Street Journal, “the author said that China’s military expansion around the” trump card “weapons such as the ability to start a series. “Trump card” is the term the way from the ancient Chinese assassin, hidden blade, fuzzy motives, but to seize the other party “Gate of Life” give a fatal blow. China believes that the U.S. military operations are highly dependent on satellite and computer networks, and this is where the U.S. military’s Gate of Life. Accelerate the development of China’s recent counter-attack U.S. satellites and U.S. networks.
“anti-access” strategy, also known as “area denial” strategy, first proposed by the U.S. Rand Corporation, which means do not seek out war with the United States through effective against U.S. forces in local, shake the United States to continue the war political and military base. If successfully implemented, will effectively prevent U.S. freedom of action in the ability of the East Asian Seas.
The article said that China’s “area denial” capabilities have been focused on the coastal stretch from China to Guam. In order to track and crack down on U.S. aircraft carriers and other surface warships the Chinese navy has used the equipment of new high-speed sea-skimming anti-ship torpedoes and cruise missile submarines; to long-range detection and fight against U.S. ships, the Chinese military is building over the horizon radar, satellites and equipment and deploy high-speed aircraft anti-ship cruise missiles. In addition, China’s ballistic missile and cruise missile strike capability, has threatened the U.S. military in Okinawa Kadena Air Force Base, Guam Andersen Air Force Base. According to the article, in China, this “anti-access” capability, the forward deployment of U.S. warships and warplanes, the East Asian waters is gradually become a “vacuum” that U.S. ships and aircraft for their own safety, must stay away from Chinese missile hit range.
U.S. experts with the “Finnish” of scare yourself?
Krepinevich said in the text, in the past 20 years, the United States strive to maintain a stable military balance in East Asia, the region had “an unprecedented, long-term peace and prosperity “, while China is the biggest beneficiary of this situation. China to curb U.S. power projection in Asia’s developing more and more aggressive, one of its objectives is to control America’s allies. Throughout the Cold War, Soviet Union, the United States to maintain military superiority, its important reason is that if the military balance in a favorable direction toward the tilt of Moscow, will America’s European allies that may not deter the Soviet Union, they will eventually fall into the Soviet Union controlled by the European countries will be faced with the “Finnish” of fate.
The article also said that the Soviet Union did not succeed to Europe, “Finland” and now this threat has emerged in East Asia. China’s military growth, it is “Finnish” strategy the best explanation. East Asia and China to establish a dominant position on the symptom has appeared: China’s recent announcement to more than 200 million square kilometers of the South China Sea is defined as “core national interests.”
Although the United States East Asian allies want to maintain a stable regional military balance, they want to play a leading role in the United States to protect this balance. However, if the U.S. military imbalance in the state of the East Asian region continues to deteriorate, these allies will have to follow the practice of the Soviet Union meet in Finland that year.
