the first time in Chinese history, active multi-national naval review held recently. The parade of small background sixtieth anniversary of the Chinese navy, and its background is to enhance China’s national strength in recent years, China’s relations with the international community and thus also involving the national psychology of the extremely subtle and profound changes.
Therefore, the marine parade, in addition to purely military sense of observation and interpretation, but also from a historical and contemporary and future international order to examine the two perspectives; but just from these two angles different aspects related to the “rise of China” issue. And this topic is the coming decades China and the international community can not be bypassed or evaded.
look at the history of maritime parade
from a historical perspective, one can see the Chinese navy one hundred years of development. Although successive leaders of China after 1949, have been carried out at sea parade, but the line-out so strong maritime parade is the first time. Moreover, the parade site on Qingdao, also reminiscent of a hundred years ago the waters of the Northern navy was lost in the tragic history of the Bohai Sea. From the Northern navy annihilated a hundred years ago, and today the rise of China in the period to revive the navy and military might, during the historical meaning is self-evident.
150 years ago, China started the Westernization Movement, with Li as the representative of Westernization efforts to develop the Northern Navy, after decades of effort, initially established in East Asia, a naval force called the advanced . However, due to the Westernization Movement ignored the construction of the system level, the last to fall short, but also in the war with Japan in the fleet annihilated, during which the lessons are very painful. Northern naval defeat of the main symbol of the failure of the Westernization Movement, but also the beginning of the Qing dynasty to perish; Though there are decades of New Deal and the open end of the Qing constitutional reform efforts, but still can not save the fate of the Qing dynasty.
hundred years have passed from the collapse of the Qing dynasty in China after the reform and opening up through the twentieth century re-emergence from the Northern Navy of today’s navy annihilated the sixtieth anniversary of the large-scale naval parade, history of the Chinese nation proud at the same time, seems to have given the contemporary Chinese people made new propositions and new challenges, and that is how China can learn from the Westernization Movement and then the painful lessons of the Northern Navy, not only from technical level, but also from the institutional level management experience and learning, research and practice, the essence and the essence of modern, so the rise of China is truly sustainable future.
from the rise of China’s more profound sense, the large-scale naval parade, the national observers and public opinion on the future direction of the Chinese Navy talking about quite a lot of speculation. In one view, the parade is the sixtieth anniversary of China’s use of army to show even the military has been made to show off.
this regard relates to how the world see China’s naval and maritime strategy development and the rapid development of China in the process of how to plan strategy for naval and marine issues; it also involves how to look at the world and China’s own the rise of great powers in the process of extending the influence of the external and the spiritual world of their own to maintain the national collective mature.
forces in extension and spiritual maturity
from a broader sense, the rise of China as the first half of the 21st century, a major trend, whether we can or how to avoid some of the history of the rise of great powers error path, and then develop a kind of human beings with human and philosophical significance of the new international order, it seems from the arguments about China’s maritime parade and controversy, it can produce some relevant thinking .
First, China’s navy and marine development strategy. With the economic rise of China’s naval and maritime strategy for the development of an extension of this is the question of meaning. I had a few years ago summed up the Chinese navy’s four missions: First, prepare the Taiwan issue resolved; second is the need to provide backing to resolve maritime disputes; third is the need to protect maritime transport routes; Fourth, to blue-water navy. These four tasks, priorities were different, but they are unable to bypass the process of emerging challenges.
in terms of China’s oil pipelines, with the rapid economic development and the potential for serious domestic oil shortage, China’s energy strategy “going out” has become an inevitable trend. In this regard, whether it is overseas or buying overseas oil exploration, are the original aim, are faced with a will back China’s oil security issues. In this respect, the safety of maritime oil transport routes, and the Chinese navy can undertake security tasks itself is closely related with China.
Related to this, China’s energy interests due to Africa and Latin America, itself, is the rise of the question of the meaning. In this sense, the rise of any power or influence are bound to include an extension of the external forces; is precisely from this sense, the rise of China extended period of foreign influence, although the international community’s attention, anxiety and even rebound, they are not the key.
The key is that the rise of China in the period of extension of foreign influence, while to grasp how to calm internal and external communication are two key mature. Internal maturity refers to the period of the rise of the national collective spirit of the world’s mature. Historical experience tells us that the rise of great powers with the national spirit of the world to be mature, or there will be economic, military and national spirit of the highly developed world of barren uncultivated in contrast, its national sustainable development will constitute a significant uncertainty. And external communication, refers to the rise and influence of China in the extension process, the ability to create a peaceful coexistence of the international order.
these two aspects of internal and external, in fact, intrinsically linked to each other, we need people to historical, cultural and philosophical significance of deep thinking and transcend itself, to overcome and conquer their courage and spirit of reason .
