Although this year’s report played down, “antagonism” and increase China’s “security development” aspects, but the report still leave China’s military development, China’s military spending, the U.S. military ties and other aspects.
reports that China may begin construction this year, domestic production of an aircraft carrier. The report also mentioned that in the past decade, China has accelerated the pace of change, the military has developed enough to affect the outside events.
Academy of Social Sciences, said Zhang Guoqing, American experts in the West’s misreading of China’s military, the “synthesizer” When the number of U.S. Department of Defense’s annual “China military power report.” Involved in the so-called experts compiling the report, mostly politicians and amateur intelligence officers, which are often prone to error hearsay.
Zhang Guoqing said that the report is the most desired results stunned the world. As the impact of the U.S. Defense Department hoped to report on the annual budget plan Congress, so often use more sensational claims, in order to attract the eye.
Zhang Guoqing, for example, this year’s report, said that China would build aircraft carriers is purely groundless speculation.
renamed this year, played down the report, “combative”
submitted to Congress this year, the Pentagon The report titled “China-related security situation in the annual report,” compared with previous years, although the report did not substantially change, but there are subtle changes in the title.
According to a 2000 law that this report be published regularly, it is the imitation of the Cold War the Pentagon released its annual report written by the Soviet military, in previous years, the title is “China military power report.”
United States, “Washington Times” reported that the title was renamed to China can be seen as “a good show.” As the “security situation” than “military” broader concept and can include assessment of China’s comprehensive national strength, economic security, social security and other aspects, which will report the smell of gunpowder more lighter, but also the table that Obama Administration attention to “soft power” approach to international affairs.
According to reports, Obama has been trying to play down the U.S. military to re-positioning of U.S. foreign and security policy, which is called “soft power” policy. Obama on China, Russia and Iran took
such a policy.
report excerpt: In the past decade, China has speeded up The pace of change, the military has developed enough to affect the outside events.
other aspects of China’s military capabilities grow more disturbing. China is investing in the development of forcing the U.S. navy and air force further away from the coast of China’s anti-access technologies and has deployed a large number of short-, medium-range missiles and cruise missiles.
has a strong Chinese navy surface ships and submarines, and are working in 1998 on the aircraft carrier purchased from Ukraine to build naval air forces. China may begin construction this year, domestic production of an aircraft carrier.
China has 125 million people in the army’s ground forces, now with new tanks, artillery and armored personnel carriers, etc. and equipment upgrades. In addition, the Chinese Army is also efforts to enhance command, control, coordination and joint ground and air assault capability.
China is also building space and network power, China is still under construction and launch of spy satellites. China’s ability to attack the network is still a mystery.
years to build aircraft carriers not based
Zhang Guoqing said China’s current carrier technology is not enough, even with the United States falls far short “years to build aircraft carrier, is entirely subjective speculation in the United States, there is no basis.”
As for the “China is investing in the development of force the U.S. navy and air force further away from China close to the coast of the anti-technology “, said Zhang Guoqing, leave alone China has almost no investment of such anti-technology, and asked the United States,” you come to China to do? “We will not let you close to any problems?
Zhang Guoqing said that the present situation in Asia is not optimistic, we are faced with the fight against terrorism, there are two nuclear issue (the nuclear issue and North Korean nuclear issue), and the situation in Afghanistan is also concern that China needs to develop some related to security technology.
report excerpt: China’s military spending does not seem to impact the global economic downturn. China is developing into an economic superpower, this change makes the Chinese government to invest more in the military.
military transparency, China has made some progress, but not enough.
U.S. Department of Defense budget, said Chinese military spending in 2009 will total over 150 billion U.S. dollars. To calculate China’s military spending is a very difficult process, because some expenses are opaque.
In addition, China’s military and security affairs of the limited transparency will increase the uncertainty, misunderstanding and misjudgment of the potential increase may be.
China’s “transparency” to improve for all to see
Zhang Guoqing said that the United States to China military calculations and speculation, obviously blind calculation, there is no evidence. China this year, in addition to disaster relief and peacekeeping, and no other large expenses. To say the least, even if China’s military spending is increasing, it is normal behavior. Orderly development of Chinese economy, military spending increase is normal behavior.
that “transparency”, said Zhang Guoqing, not just the military, every area of ??China to improve transparency in all the world to see. The United States every year, “criticized the” China “opaque”, in fact, ulterior motives, is to once again put pressure on China.
report excerpt: The Chinese army is now for the international peacekeeping efforts, humanitarian assistance and contribute to the anti-piracy operations. United States welcomes this, and are willing to work with China to further development in these areas of cooperation.
China has repeatedly terminate military cooperation with both the purpose of this divergence.
termination of corporate responsibility in the U.S.
Chinese termination of bilateral military exchanges for a reason of. China will have every good exchange with the United States, but the United States ignored China’s opposition, has repeatedly arms sales to Taiwan, adhere to the Multimodal speech, this is a provocation to China. China accused the United States continuously once again that the U.S. high-handed, his own error on China, and not to counter China.
published five months delay to avoid “angered China”
this report scheduled for released on March 1 this year, after the delay has only released five months.
the Chinese government to publish this annual report to the United States protested, saying it exaggerates China’s military.
a former U.S. military officials and the Chinese called “Sanya Initiative,” the organization has been lobbying the government and Congress not to publish the report, claiming that the report on China’s military modernization do unfair description.
this report scheduled for released on March 1 this year, after the delay has only released five months.
According to U.S. media reports, the U.S. Department of Defense several months ago to complete the report, there are Republican senators that the U.S. government to suppress publication of the report, in order to avoid angering China, or trying to lower the tone of the report, to please in China.
“China Military Power Report,” is a politically charged document has always been affected by the overall situation of Sino-US relations. In 2003, “China Military Power Report,” was postponed to July 31 the year before release.
2008, the report was submitted few days delay, reasons for the delay are controversial within the United States, and then are faced with some of the complex political and diplomatic factors that need to be adjusted in the wording and response.
“Washington Post” that this year, as the U.S. government approved arms sales to Taiwan, South Korea military exercises and other events, Sino-US relations were strained. In recent months, the Chinese military to the Pentagon to take a hard line, which is the U.S. Pentagon released a report the reason for the delay.
authors of the report is not professional fallacies
Academy of Social Sciences, said Zhang Guoqing, American experts in the West’s misreading of China’s military power, the “master of person “when the number of U.S. Department of Defense’s annual” China military power report. ”
Zhang Guoqing said that in the preparation of the “China military power report,” the so-called experts who are mostly politicians and amateur intelligence officers, their very limited means to obtain intelligence, they often mixed network of information as China’s military development “evidence.” This error is often prone to gossip.
the U.S. Congress intended to refer to the report, budgeting plan, but the current situation, the process of compiling these reports are often upside down – to the previous budget as the basis for the Department of Defense to increase military budget beating the drums.
Zhang Guoqing said that in order to make the military more of the expenditure, in order to sell arms to obtain weapons of group profits, the so-called “China” are woven one after another lie. For political, academic and cultural limitations, these so-called “military experts” who fabricated the “China military power report,” many errors.
exaggeration is a long
Zhang Guoqing said, “China Military Power Report,” the most desired effect is stunned. As the impact of the U.S. Defense Department hoped to report on the annual budget plan Congress, so often use more sensational claims, in order to attract the eye.
Zhang Guoqing, for example, this year’s report, said that China would build aircraft carriers is purely groundless speculation. As another example, the 2005 report claimed that China’s military power is no longer a Third World military forces in some areas has reached First World standards, the United States will suffer from China’s unprecedented military challenges.
In fact, the “China military report” alarmist claims by the U.S. Government is also unbearable, so the 2005 report by Congress to fight back once again modified.
U.S. Department of Defense to exaggerate the so-called threat is a long potential adversaries.
Cold War, the United States intends to exaggerate the strength of the Soviet Union until the Soviet Union came to the understanding the American public; the Cold War, the Bush administration to find an excuse for war to exaggerate the Iraqi threat of weapons of mass destruction, and after the war in Iraq but could not find any evidence.
