but in the power of political thinking among the non-traditional security cooperation can not be fundamentally changed traditional security on the confrontation or potential confrontation.
the cooperation of China or the United States to contain China’s future trends from a judge: the founding of New China in 1949 changed the situation in Asia, the rise of China in the 21st century will likely change the world. Source of potential war between China and the U.S. has not been eliminated. 1990 Taiwan Strait crisis prompted the formation of another history: the United States that can not give up on Chinese military containment and prevention. Obama claims the U.S. does not intend to “contain” China, but that may be a political blank check, is a no-cost concessions, but it will not stop the deployment of the military.
still exist between China and the United States may lead some potential for military conflict, such as the Taiwan issue and even the South China Sea issues, which is full trust between China and can not determine the root causes of strategic mutual trust in what extent, can solve this problem is still unsure.
past Sino-US relations has been driven by events, the formation of a special crisis-driven model of development. Every crisis is to promote or facilitate the development of Sino-US relations. The emergence of the crisis both leaders again and again to recognize the essential importance of cooperation with each other, the crisis led to the Sino-US relations because of something pragmatic alliance. But another social level and decision-making levels is not fully recognize its special subtleties. Meanwhile, the crisis between China and led to no real substance to the depth and successful cooperation, such as the North Korean nuclear issue and other issues are so hot. Co-limits and limitations of the crisis are still fresh in.
Sino-US relations so deeply intertwined, a group still did not eliminate the relationship between each alert has become the largest creditor and debtor relationship. These more active in China, the United States compared with the more cautious and passive. China factor to promote a greater role in the development of China-US relations, but one driving force is limited. China is changing the United States, but China-US relationship is a mutually re-shape the relationship, are indispensable. The next step if the United States to promote further, the possible further development of Sino-US relations. For example, the United States must be prepared to learn or major concern in China to make substantial concessions on core issues.
Sino-US relations are now no good to the degree we want, but not bad to the extent that we worry about. China and the U.S. has gone far beyond the “lost illusions, ready to fight” stage, into the “lost illusions, and pragmatic cooperation” period. However, it seems that the cooperation is still several years away is two lines, which allow differences affect cooperation, or beyond the differences and promoting cooperation, but the difference did not reduce or eliminate, it may still affect cooperation, or ultimately a profound impact on cooperation. We are no longer enemies, but not yet a true friend. We are working hard to ensure that there is a lose-lose backwards. Although the current Sino-US relations can not guarantee sustained better, but worse can be avoided to some extent.
from the reality of Sino-US relations, but also can not toss, toss to win less Scrapped. China-US relations are at a relatively stable micro-step forward in the process, it is difficult to achieve great strides across, but also need to build more of the mechanisms of a Sino-US relations because they can not accidental event or crisis to regress. Between China and the U.S. Although the same boat, but also as against the current, if you do not make it better, then the deterioration will increase.
current key is still further stabilize the relationship, not because of misunderstanding caused by misjudgment, not because of unexpected events arising from the relationship between a major setback. We must be aware of each other’s constraints and contact is inevitable, can not be ignored, who ignore each other, whose interests may suffer more; secondly, to avoid major fluctuations or back, again and again the cycle and start again, costly , and very unwise.
