Commented that China should compete with the United States by Asian countries to support anti-block
2010 年 8 月 10, S · John McCain, U.S. Navy Arleigh No. – Burke-class guided missile destroyer, arrived in Vietnam Da Nang for a visit. The picture shows the Vietnamese side welcomed the U.S. military access.
the United States seems to widen a fight match Asian countries, the United States do very seriously, in Northeast Asia, consolidating a military alliance with South Korea, the U.S. aircraft carrier to visit Vietnam over the past adversaries. China cries of social concern, there are people who repeat a foreign concept: Asian version of NATO.
seven years ago, the Asian version of NATO is the first initiative of the Indian scholars, after the U.S. and Western media, occasionally mentioned in recent days the word was mentioned most. No one thinks that this concept in international relations level, is serious, but the concept represents the United States and the West a desire to Asian countries as much as possible close to the United States, from China, to form China’s neighboring countries fear China-based coalition of interests, to form China’s influence spread to the world the invisible wall a wall.
tangible “Asian version of NATO” can not do it, but the psychological “Asian version of NATO,” but China should beware. For the win over China’s neighboring countries, the United States has some natural advantages. Such as the United States, far enough away, and the Asian countries involved in territorial and maritime rights and interests without the direct dispute. The United States is a veteran big country, and China’s rapid rise to the Asian countries has brought suspicion and unease. America’s overall national power, has several military bases in Asia, close economic ties with Asian countries, and can continue to vote to force a new key areas, making almost all corners of Asia, the U.S. presence can be felt. Therefore, the cut can not underestimate the U.S. capacity to contain China in Asia.
However, the U.S. is not a panacea. Compete for the hearts and minds in Asia, China also has its own advantages. The first is China and its neighbors endure nearly, contradictions, but the interests of each other cross-cutting prosperity to the overall loss of small conflicts with overwhelming force, no one around the country can not afford the consequences of antagonizing China. Second, China’s fast economic growth, the ability to benefit around will gradually overwhelm the United States. Third, the problems facing Chinese society and governance with the neighboring countries closer, and therefore politically easier to communicate. At present, China and several neighboring countries have a strong relationship with them in the United States.
In fact, both the United States or China, Asian countries are unable to completely pull to his side, let them choose sides. It is incompatible with the interests of Asian countries, the United States to compete in the wider middle ground, the greater the room for maneuver in Asian countries, they have to do is in pursuit of national interests between the United States to maximize.
China should compete with the Asian American people, we must face a variety of Asian countries on China’s worried that these countries recognize the legitimacy of China’s ambiguous. For U.S. foreign distribution in Asia, China must self-confidence: some little trick that can not be how we like. For the friction with individual Asian countries, China must be rational, effective, and with restraint, to increase friction to China by addressing the political credibility and authority, rather than the reverse.
US-China tensions likely to lead to unrest or turmoil in Asia, China led Asia to ensure a consensus of most countries: the United States involved in inciting and malicious damage to the atmosphere in Asia, the United States in these countries prejudicial to the interests. China is a cooperative initiative to side, the friction of the passive side, but definitely not the friction of the failure side. This lasted for about ten years, 20 years, China has won.
