Detong She reported on June 16, the original title: The Chinese people may have to build an aircraft carrier it?
“build an aircraft carrier is a symbol of great power, which is necessary in China have the ability to build aircraft carriers, and so should you.” This is a reference to the AFP in March last year, Chinese general, then a media interview . This is reminiscent of 100 years ago, the German emperor Wilhelm II once said: “Please do not force me to build a strong German force.” Past and present, are not just lip service. Development of weapons at sea is becoming China’s top economic, political and military breakthrough.
March this year, Russian media said that China and Russia refused to sell Su-33 fighter aircraft carriers, worried about China as a reference for industrial piracy. Reportedly, the Chinese began to require the purchase of two Su-33, the subsequent negotiations, pledged to “test purchases” 14, later increased to 50. But soon after China’s own carrier-based aircraft F -15 developed. China has also purchased from Ukraine related technologies. Russia gave a harsh comment. China’s success is undoubtedly Russia’s loss, disaster or even the beginning of trouble.
Japanese media reported early in 2008, in Shanghai, a huge building around the island, is likely to be China’s medium-sized aircraft carrier construction site. The aircraft carrier construction is seen as the People’s Republic of long-term political intentions. 2015 to 2020, China’s marine weapons will be fully upgraded.
China’s global reach has been extended, it is replaced by the former European presence in Africa. China through the carrier to ensure their own economic interests. China envisaged two aircraft carrier battle group, can be reached (such Africa) to carry out military intervention in conflict areas, or at least threaten to intervene.
China’s political elite do not believe in universal brotherhood, they are only interested in the national interest. Currently in China, not the year against the West and Eastern Europe, totally different. Today, the West into a debt crisis, whether military or economically not so red China. The story of China’s development and competition with the West did not occur in the hunting grounds of Western democracy, the denial that China is meaningless.
15 century, China was a grand and great power. Now it is to (through the construction of aircraft carriers) to reproduce the large country style. On the other hand, the West consume too much over the past few decades, the West must prepare for the new strategic situation. As for Russia, it must remain in the forefront of technological development status. The super-neighbor competition with China would be very difficult but not impossible.
