United States,” Chicago Tribune “on May 24 article, the original question: peace with China and other accidents
play firecrackers when watching fireworks explode, we are not surprised. The problem is you point one, threw it out, but found that did not ring, it makes more surprising. Over the past 10 years, exchanges between the U.S. and China is one such. Although full of gunpowder, but no explosion.
United States has long regarded China as threats to human security, which is not without reason. We handed over the two battle in the Korean War, Vietnam and China to help deal with us. Mao Zedong’s communist regime by providing guns to encourage global “liberation movement.” Even in the 1990s, the neo-conservatives also forecast to settle old accounts with the intent of the Beijing place new Cold War.
Chinese people 捏一把冷汗, reason is not difficult to understand. After 30 years of rapid growth, it is now the world’s third largest economy. Those who watched the 2008 Summer Olympics who can prove that this country set a specific target for the ability of human chilling. With 1.3 billion people, China is reminiscent of Joseph Stalin ? The famous saying: “Sometimes, the amount is qualitative.”
more specific concern is the substantial increase in Chinese military budgets. It is also suspected of attacks on the Pentagon computer network. China does not cover ready to go to war with us for the Taiwan issue. Recently, China has repeatedly harassed ships in international waters of the U.S. surveillance ship, this seems to be interested in testing our new president.
China is obviously a quite a lot of power, but can not be overestimated. So far, China’s defense spending is still not to the United States, 1/4. China is no aircraft carrier, which is essential to send troops offshore tools.
ready to war with the United States does not mean want or seek war. This may be just considered prudent. As a messianic superpower, we let some countries fear will be our target.
view of the history surrounding the opponent and the unstable nuclear powers, China’s military expansion is not so suspicious motives. Moreover, the country from Japanese aggression, but only two generations. After all, we spend money on defense than the rest of the world combined, Moreover, our enemies are half a world away.
no doubt, even if we do not exist, China’s most (if not all) military expansion will continue as usual. This is a normal behavior of emerging powers — and expansionist ideology-based countries (such as the former Soviet Union) different approach.
course, even the normal emerging major powers may be in conflict with the existing power, especially when they require a greater respect and influence force. However, China seems so far efforts to avoid becoming a destructive force.
once a rival of the international order, China has joined the World Trade Organization, the African countries to send peacekeepers, developing a closer relationship with Taiwan. Not long ago, China also sent ships to Somali waters to combat piracy. Peking University Institute of International Relations Professor Zhang Xiaoming, said: “China wants to become a status quo country, rather than the revolutionary state.” Leaders of the country for a similar position.
prudent person would not take this statement seriously. But the case of China, Beijing, no significant difference between words and deeds. Therefore, they may say to do. Generally speaking, people feel that China’s behavior, they assume that a country can be cautious, restrained, and limited military multilateral cooperation to ensure prosperity and security. No wonder people get confused in Washington. ▲ (author Steve ? Chapman, Wang analyze translation)
