In recent years, China has adopted active measures to showcase the results of military modernization, the military continued to improve transparency. National Day parade last year, about 52 kinds of weapons system unveiled in Tiananmen. In April last year, the Chinese navy’s maritime parade, the “vanguard” of the two nuclear submarines to become the biggest bright spot. German “Handelsblatt” commented that the Chinese Navy “to the most secret fleet had to show the new face of maritime power.” The U.S. naval commanders and experts ignore China’s move to increase military transparency, constantly rendering the China threat, obviously ulterior motives behind it.
① establish China’s “opponents” image, the theoretical basis for the strategy to adjust for. Historically, the United States are each adjusted to theoretical development strategy for the pilot, the development of the theory is conducive to the formation of a consensus in the country to facilitate the formulation of government policy and implementation. Currently, the U.S. strategic center of gravity has been moving eastward, in the “China threat” theory, under the stimulation and induction, the U.S. military deployment in the western Pacific situation for China’s intentions more clearly.
② provide a pretext for the expansion of armaments. Level by exaggerating China’s military power, to promote Chinese military threat posed by Western countries, especially the United States can be sufficient reason to require Congress to dramatically increase military spending, while also keeping the White House Department of Defense to develop an important voice in foreign policy .
③ seek benefits for the military industrial complex. In Western countries, large-scale arms about politics is often a strong “lobby” to China as a strategic rival, the military industrial complex can get from the huge buildup in the revenue.
④ to find an excuse to sell arms to Taiwan. In this regard, the Pentagon, “the level of Chinese military power report” a substantial role, on the one hand to persuade the United States efforts to increase arms sales to Taiwan; the other hand, force the Taiwan authorities to make early decision to buy more U.S. weapons.
⑤ intentionally suppressed to strengthen military-technical cooperation with China in the object. Deliberately exaggerate China’s military power, efforts to render the formation of security threats in East Asia, China, warning his country military-technical cooperation with China.
