the ROK-US speech just ended, the United States, “George Washington” to join the aircraft carrier and immediately to 8-day Japan-US joint military exercises. It is generally believed that the U.S. win over South Korea, Japan, continuous large-scale military exercises, not only to deter North Korea, but also to East Asia, Southeast Asia, Western Pacific countries in the region show of force, especially to the rising of the pressure on China. Review is not difficult to find in 2010, the United States in the Western Pacific Ocean constantly causing trouble, get the gun dance clique stick, swagger, in fact or in “gunboat policy” to seize the future strategic and military presence.
modern times, with artillery, ship in the military as a symbol of colonial aggression and plunder, had given the East Asian, Southeast Asian countries and how much a nightmare of humiliation, the historical memory will never kill. For centuries, Western powers will “gunboat policy” to play to the point to be added, after World War II, the United States as the dominant Western world Shuoyibuer, after the end of the Cold War is to become the world’s only superpower, the international hegemony and power politics of the most typical representatives. 60 years since the end of World War II period, occurred in all regions on earth wars and regional conflicts, explicitly or implicitly have a U.S. presence, and “gunboat policy” in which the roles are almost always very disgraceful. We can say that after so many years of knowledge and experience, the world has been fully see the essence of this policy.
Today, the bloody crimes of the colonial era is over, “as long as the shelves in the East Coast from a few cannons can occupy a country’s age” is no longer a go back to the. If individual countries also died clutching originated in the colonial era of “gunboat policy” just let go, and always will be cannon, ship in some presentations, some cruising, and even provoking the conflict, war, not only did unpopular, and its effects are only can be counterproductive. From a practical point of view, “gunboat policy” has put pressure not achieve the so-called deterrent effect on North Korea not to China even more useless. Today, with high input, high-tech feeding out of the gunboat, no doubt eating money machine, playing a high-tech high cost of the war, even the world’s most powerful country can ill afford. The time from our most recent war in Iraq, Afghanistan, for example, a high degree of disparity in military strength both war and economic level and completely asymmetric technological advantages, but the U.S. world hegemony itself, must not only consume huge amounts of war funding for this, but also in politics economic, social, military, cultural and other aspects will also be long-term “war consequences” troubled, and the United States in these areas to grab the economic strategic interests compared to the cost for the war is cost-effective, but also play a big question mark.
from a fundamental point of view, “gunboat policy” has been increasingly unpopular, difficult to see its effect, mainly Times have changed, the development of the world situation left room for such a policy has been increasingly more narrow. With the widespread impact of economic globalization, the world today is undergoing profound changes, “you have me, I have you,” an unprecedented blend of deep interest, especially the fast pace of technological innovation and information sharing, has been associated with the world economy degree, to an unprecedented level of dependence. In the interest of diversification and expansion of common interests in the case, the field of multi-polarization of international politics is increasingly clear that treatment needs more interest in co-operation and dialogue, to deal with risks and challenges each member walk hand in hand, even the most of any country powerful country is immune, alone. The theme of world peace and development, which is the consensus of the world, this is a world trend. Characteristics of military pressure for action, might is right for the logic of the “gunboat policy” against the consensus of world peace and development, moving against the trend of the times, must not work, must be into the history of the dead.
“gunboat policy” should fade into history. If “No permanent friends, no permanent enemies, only permanent interests”, then when the “global village” to accelerate convergence as a “community of interests” when friends and enemies will be more blurred the boundaries, all countries should be converted role as the long-term partner. In East Asia, Southeast Asia, this peace, cooperation and development momentum is more obvious, has become the world’s most economically active areas. The United States’ return to Asia “under the slogan, very old-fashioned to reposition itself in the outdated” gunboat policy “, although it may temporarily be harvested, but the long term is tantamount to using borrowed, this policy will be the region peace and development trend of the weeded out.
