economy” to go out “necessarily requires the military to” go out “to defend the future of China’s military forces overseas is inevitable. China sent troops to the Gulf of Aden, off the Somali coast to escort the implementation is a good example. China’s future military forces overseas is a very worthwhile study of new problems. In addition to now has been effectively implemented and will continue operations, such as international peacekeeping, humanitarian relief, naval vessels have visited the Chinese and foreign joint military exercises, naval escort overseas, overseas scientific and technological research protection, I believe that China’s future military forces overseas There are several cases.
one in the Yellow Sea, South China Sea safeguard the motherland’s sovereignty and territorial integrity of the struggle. Armed conflict may also be expanded to war. Strictly speaking this is not “overseas”, because it is a matter within the scope of territorial sovereignty. Because it is outside the mainland, this is also regarded as military forces overseas. In general, we must first carry out modernization requires a peaceful and stable external environment, but this does not rule out the extreme cases on the issue of national sovereignty conflict.
two armed protection, evacuation of my overseas nationals. In recent years, due to political struggles, terrorist attacks, natural disasters, labor disputes and other reasons, China’s overseas citizens, nationals attacked more and more. For example, the recent unrest in southern Kyrgyzstan, China’s government sent back overseas citizens charter. However, the protection of overseas citizens, nationals and ultimately military means. China can refer to the practice of foreign countries, overseas citizens, nationals was to take large-scale armed attack protection, evacuation measures. C?te d’Ivoire in September 2002 after the coup, the United States dispatched 200 soldiers to protect the nationals of the country.
three overseas terrorism. This is a very possible we do not, it is necessary to take action. Terrorists ravaged the world, China’s interests at home and abroad frequently terrorist attacks. To effectively protect national interests at home and abroad, maintaining security and stability of the marine environment, the use of force against terrorists is inevitable. For example, the use of force in one fell swoop eliminate the “East Turkistan” organizations outside the nest, nor is it impossible. As another example, if terrorists destroy my overseas in foreign ports, terminals, oil depots, oil fields and other facilities, we can also consider the use of force against terrorism.
Fourth deter cruise. Military forces overseas, do not necessarily have to implement firepower. Sometimes, cited without hair can play a very good deterrent, but also more easily implemented. If the occurrence of future overseas somewhere with my “emergency” situation, I immediately sent a “large-scale combat ships at sea,” to cruise the region for deterrence, the effect is certainly better than the “strong indignation” much better. Usually nothing, but also go around Dora.
fifth is to seek Board disposition. The United States in the 1980s put forward to control the world’s 16 maritime choke points, and later proposed to control the 8 key sea areas. Do we have to think about a similar plan? Some experts and scholars in the “overseas military bases” on the issue, have proposed to break the traditional rigid thinking. This will be China’s future may be one aspect of military forces overseas. (The author is the Chinese Academy of Military Sciences scholar.)
