Joint letter to the Senate report, the Pentagon will “want to send can not send” entangled profile exposure in the spotlight, many U.S. media as “Gates, Congress, urging you to pay China operations” as the subject reported the incident.

this year, as the U.S. government approved arms sales to Taiwan, China canceled Gates to visit China and South Korea military exercises and other events, Sino-US relations has not only delayed the U.S. Pentagon, “China Military Power Report” ease the wording and ease, but against the more emotionally intense. Therefore, some senators believe that China should not yield to sentiment, the report should be released as soon as possible. “Washington Post” also said, the Senator issued a joint letter from the arms company in your state, it is a joint letter on behalf of the military-industrial interests.
