Recently, the Korea-US joint military exercises in the United States nuclear-powered aircraft carrier into the Yellow Sea waters are widespread attention, most media experts and scholars concerns are concentrated in the U.S. nuclear-powered aircraft carriers into the Yellow Sea after a direct threat to my gateway to Beijing and Tianjin, as well as the radius of our national security and defense challenges of the border, many people who do not happy. In fact, avoid them in the face of difficult challenges or threats, may wish to adopt a positive attitude and take active measures to deal with and resolve. Sent naval forces to take the initiative to go the high seas, “come watch”, both to diffuse the situation, may also have some military “windfall.”
China is the ROK-US speech invisible target, which is a basic political judgments. On the surface, South Korea continues to push forward the process of hard-line stance on North Korea, the strategic military self-confidence and lack of courage, hope the U.S. Navy aircraft carrier battle group for courage. In fact we all know, the fundamental strength of the Korean Navy is less than the South Korean navy, let alone compared with the U.S. Navy. However, the U.S. insisted on sending a large nuclear-powered aircraft carrier strike group to China’s coastal waters exercises against the DPRK, the meaning behind the strange not to be suspected. Particularly in the United States insisted on promoting U.S. arms sales to Taiwan and frequent high-level post after tough talk on China, the U.S. aircraft carrier strike group under the blade is difficult to believe North Korea. Thus, in the Korea-US “overkill” type of exercise, China is not unrelated to spectators, but a goal to be invisible.
in with the judge, we also see that the ROK-US play for the Chinese Navy to provide a training opportunity. Carrier Strike Group is the hegemony of U.S. foreign policy a trump card, is also a major threat to China’s implementation of the intervention force, but the more far away from China’s coastal waters, with navy direct encounter few opportunities. From the military point of view, military exercises to simulate actual combat is usually the main, the command processes, communication means and methods, weapons use, levels and other aspects of defense than the daily training cruise and more complex, more valuable. Some cruise and training in peacetime restrictions on the use of key communication, communication channels, frequency radar, sonar, power, etc., usually on or flashes of military exercises, missile and torpedo weapons such as electromagnetic characteristics have a more realistic manifestation. In addition, Korea and the U.S. land and air with and understanding of various arms and services is very valuable information.
actively respond to the future ROK-US speech will help resolve similar difficulties. From another perspective, if the United States to send nuclear-powered aircraft carrier into the Multimodal speech, can also be seen as a U.S. test of China’s reaction has important symbolic significance. Since the “Kitty Hawk” retired conventionally powered aircraft carrier, “Washington” has been responsible for the U.S. nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, “custody” Western Pacific Region, “Washington” nuclear-powered aircraft carrier deployed to Japan since the not yet been carried out military exercises in China’s coastal waters precedent. If the U.S. nuclear-powered aircraft carrier to enter China after Multimodal speech does not take measures to deal with, may be the United States as a precedent for similar events in China to master the position and attitude, resulting in the radius of the United States continues to misjudge China’s security, its carrier strike group will be as normal events in China’s coastal waters, with impunity in the Yellow Sea, East China Sea and South China Sea.
Therefore, China’s coastal waters for the first time the attitude of the U.S. nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, position and response measures are important, exemplary. If every U.S. aircraft carrier battle group to the Chinese offshore activities will be met with the Chinese Navy “crowd” or “perspective”, or will help reduce or avoid openly challenging China’s defensive line events. ▲ (author Strategic Studies Institute of the Navy of a scholar.)
