participate in anti-terrorism task of the United States special forces soldiers
Editor’s Note: Yemen is becoming the new U.S. anti-terrorism war. Washington a new round of terrorism for China will be affected? How should China respond? Newspaper invited the Research Center of Tsinghua University, China-US relations, Sun Zhe, Air Force Colonel Dai Xu, China Institute of International Relations Institute of the United States as long as Wei, deputy director, Institute of International Relations, Peking University expert on the United States over thousands of miles, asking them to explain their view.
Obama repeating the mistakes of George W. Bush?
Yu Wanli: Obama trying to make some changes though, and George W. Bush sought to “stay out” speech in Cairo last year, also expressed a similar wish, but the actual and did not come up with substantive measures. We can say that reality does not receive his love, the objective situation does not give him space to change. U.S. counter-terrorism door opened, a variety of factors will push the U.S. to move forward, this inertia is the Obama administration can not reverse, so it is unlikely to make major adjustments.
Sun Zhe: George W. Bush to stretched too thin, and even the United States bogged down in the quagmire, Obama is like a lesson, so put forward the idea of ??a return to multilateralism, in Japan, EU, Africa and other global development issues presented ambitious plans, hoping reshape the public image of the United States, exporting democracy by force to change the impression.
Despite Obama’s proposed corrective measures, but because of such circumstances, such as Yemen, had to open up this new anti-terrorism war, and this new battle may also have a third after the first four. Objective situation forced the U.S. to re-expand their anti-terrorism war. However, the measures taken by the Obama administration may be more flexible, not like the war in Iraq that, but pay more attention to rely on local people and government, from the unilateral use of psychological warfare to terrorism, propaganda and other means of comprehensive change.
how China should do
Yu Wanli: China can not go blending into the U.S. war on terrorism, which is equivalent Huozhongquli. China’s strategic interests not to so far, China has its own interests, do their thing on the line, and the United States in the costs of the war on terror has been big enough, these are bloody lesson. China must not repeat the mistakes of the United States.
Sun Zhe: U.S. counter-terrorism is an important global issue, China should declare support for global terrorism. Terrorism does not only refer to suicide bombers, like the Somali pirates is actually an act of terrorism, it is also a threat to China’s security. So the Chinese have a choice to support the U.S., such as in fighting piracy and cooperation to strengthen security and other aircraft, the Chinese do no harm.
of Wei: China’s attitude has been to support terrorism, but does not advocate the use of military means, but also support international cooperation in solving problems, this has been no change. U.S. terrorism “fight uncertain, chaotic rule” situation, in fact, China is the victim, but on this issue than the United States to China detached, because terrorism is not directed at China. So I think China should be limited to support the U.S. anti-terrorism, but I strongly object to the use of force such a radical approach, overreact to China no good.
China is now in the Arab, Pakistani anti-terrorism is also supported, such as peace and political, on the financial support, but China can do more. Yemen is now the United States to open up a new battlefield, may have more later. China can invest more money to support or help the local police training, etc., by taking this non-military means to support terrorism. Of course, if the United Nations mandate, the local government also invited to express their willingness to participate in the case of China, China is also to consider sending peacekeepers, peacekeepers.
brought terror to the Chinese what
Dai Xu: In the Bush era, the main task of the United States against terrorism, so being relaxed in China containment, China has thus been a period of opportunity. But now Obama is the anti-terrorism policy as a part of its importance has declined compared to a lot 10 years ago, became an aspect of U.S. security. We can not imagine how the Obama administration will China friendship. Recently, the U.S. think tanks have a lot to say bad-mouthing the Sino-US relations, there is some truth in fact, the U.S. policy of containment of China will become increasingly apparent.
Sun Zhe: U.S. counter-terrorism strategy to the objective of China’s one opportunity, but China should have a correct concept, not too much reliance on the U.S. policy change for strategic space.
now between China and the larger issue is trade friction, the U.S. arms sales to Taiwan, Obama ready to interview the Dalai Lama. The question is, Sino-US joint statement signed last year whether to implement. Between China and there are so many contradictions in the case, the joint statement put forward a wide range of new areas of cooperation. How to strengthen cooperation in new areas to resolve some contradictions, both sides should think about.
arms sales to Taiwan and see the Dalai Lama is very difficult but Obama had to make political decisions. Some people think that China-US overall situation of the United States will take into account changes such a decision, which is very wrong. Taiwan’s money Americans have to earn, but also be sure to see the Dalai Lama, and Barack Obama on the consequences of these two things very clear. He is a personality from the more thoughtful people doing things, his logic is to choose the right time to do it, do a repair later.
of Wei: I do not agree with “9 ? 11″ to China’s strategic space argument. China is not only a threat to the United States, is more of an opportunity. The beginning of the Bush administration on this issue is a miscarriage of justice, but after the collision, there are signs that the U.S. has begun to seriously re-examine the Sino-US relations, China policy and fine-tuning. It can be said, even without the “9 ? 11″, the Bush Administration will adjust the Sino-US relations.
In this sense, Obama is also aware that China’s challenge to the U.S. level is less than the opportunity level. The Obama administration, the financial crisis, climate issues and nuclear disarmament is the most important of the three pieces of global issues, China-US relations is not the most important issue.
Therefore, although the United States to China are defensive, it is successive governments have, and Obama is no exception, but it is not necessary there is no reason to contain China. U.S. think tank for China-US relations in 2010, pessimistic, I disagree. Sino-US relations in 2010 may indeed be some thing, but do not develop to that extent, both sides are unwilling to develop to that extent, the two sides have set control, macro-environment has not changed, so the China-US relations will not be major turning point.
