LONDON, January 29 News: U.S. Naval War College professor – Michael Chase (Michael S. Chase) 1 26 wrote that once was assessed as “obsolete, backward Chinese Army”, now its growing air force, navy, missile, space and information warfare capabilities, to foreign military observers left a deep impression even lead to concerns of its neighbors. In recent years, China’s military deployed a number of increasingly powerful and sophisticated weapons, including modern surface ships, submarines, advanced, fourth-generation fighter aircraft, conventional cruise missiles and ballistic missiles, which also includes anti-ship missiles against aircraft carriers. China has also strengthened its command, control, communications, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems, and space and network capability.
article said U.S. Defense Secretary Robert – Robert Gates during a recent visit to China, the network rumors about China’s new stealth fighter F -20 photos and video, which seems to be China’s intention to emphasize the development of its military ability. Research results show F -20 China hopes beyond the expectations of the outside world, and is determined to be an increasingly powerful military strength of the relevant information to the United States. This week, Chinese President Hu Jintao arrived in Washington for the occasion of state visit, China’s military image more powerful out there in the world.
China’s growing military capabilities, such as the January 2007 Chinese anti-satellite test carried out, in March 2009 to monitor shipping incident threatened the United States, all this raises a question: whether an increasingly powerful China to the United States and its allies pose a threat? For accelerating China’s military modernization, analysts are concerned about China as an emerging competitor, its defense budget has grown rapidly. Beijing to increase defense spending, its purpose is to enable the PLA has a more reliable program to develop operational plans, and prevent U.S. military intervention.
In addition, the PLA’s modernization depends on China’s rise on the world stage. With China’s economic and security interests of the increasingly global nature of the PLA’s role and mission are evolving to cope with the challenges of an increasingly diverse. To achieve these development tasks, the Chinese leadership has instructed the PLA to enhance its participation in the capacity of non-war military operations, such as the Chinese navy has in the Gulf of Aden to combat piracy patrol. These actions are regarded as China’s growing global interests to protect its important initiatives. But military leaders also stressed that China’s army is still the core task of containment and win the war.
present in many aspects of China’s military strength will continue to lag behind the United States; but the Chinese military in the field of all aspects of the new ability to have the security balance in Asia-Pacific region caused a serious challenge. China’s cyber warfare, anti-satellite weapons, submarines, ballistic missiles has made great progress, and may threaten U.S. bases in the Asia Pacific region. U.S. aircraft carrier has become the U.S. military presence and power projection of the sign; its space technology and development of computer networks, gave the U.S. military to provide strong support.
article points out, military strength for the development of China, the United States need to develop appropriate strategies to prevent the Chinese use of force in regional disputes. And create new operational thinking, the development of cutting-edge information and electronic warfare capabilities, to enhance the Navy’s superiority in submarine environment to ensure the reliability of strategic deterrence. Meanwhile, the U.S. should strengthen practice and improve in the absence of satellite and network support of the combat capability. Demonstrate to the Chinese, even if the U.S. attacks on computer networks and satellites, it will not undermine U.S. military strength.
the same time, efforts to strengthen the deterrent must also be continuously adjusted to avoid China’s strategic intentions of the United States over concerns. Since China is very worried about the U.S. double-teamed by the way, to prevent and curb the rise of China; Washington also should carefully weigh whether to take action may further exacerbate the fear of China. In order to prevent misunderstanding of both the United States should continue on the Korean Peninsula issue, space and cyber warfare, as well as the strategic stability of Sino-US relations on security issues, expand dialogue with China. The United States also should seek to strengthen, such as anti-piracy and humanitarian assistance, military cooperation with China.
this week’s state visit to President Obama and President Hu Jintao and leaders to strengthen cooperation between the two countries provides a unique opportunity. Of course, the interests of the two countries in strategic and complex relationship issues, and certainly the path of cooperation requires both sides to have many difficulties to face.
