International Herald Tribune article on China, how to effectively defend the tradition of the South China Sea, “Kau line” in the interests of national sovereignty has become the urgent need to address a major issue. Art of War says, “the army attack plan” at this stage may not be military means to solve the problem of choice for the South China Sea, but some ways, in addition to diplomatic and economic means to maintain a certain military deterrence, the situation in the South China Sea will be more conducive to a good direction development.
priority: reducing the gap between the battlefield
In recent years, hundreds of gas wells rely on the South China Sea caused by rolling the wealth, the more other countries have expanded FIMA arms, accelerating the pace of the South China Sea battlefield. “According to marine oil”, “oil idea that”, “stationed themselves account for the sea” has become more FIMA and other countries invaded and occupied the South China Sea islands and adjacent waters of the “black interests of the chain.”
present, the more FIMA and other countries of the battlefield in the South China Sea has shown a “normalization troops, fortifications permanent, positions in depth” of features. If more Nannan Wei Island Airport, Changsha Island airport in 2004 and 2005, respectively, have been completed, the Vietnamese Air Force to gain valuable Nansha forward from the airport. Since 2006, the newspaper and get the building in the Nansha satellite communications and mobile phone network, to further strengthen the reefs of the logistical and other infrastructure. The Philippines has its share of eight islands and reefs in the construction of two Air Force bases, three Army bases. Among them, the industry is set to the Philippine island of Nansha Islands in the command center, the island has a 1,500 m long, 90 meters wide concrete runway, can accommodate large Philippine C-130 aircraft, barracks and watch towers, bunkers, satellite clouds communication systems and other military facilities across the island.
sound system for the battlefield more FIMA and other countries invaded and occupied the South China Sea islands and reefs continue to increase the “lung”, Vietnam, the Philippines and other countries and then spend lots of money to buy including the “poisonous spider” class large missile boats, Su-27/Su-30 fighter jets and advanced destroyer, including a large number of weapons, its combat radius to be extended to the Nansha Islands.
For China, the construction of the South China Sea battle system is lagging, deep waters of the Nansha lack Airport, Hong Kong and Shenzhen Zhubo to other strategic strong point, greatly limits the deployment of naval and air forces and the use of . Battlefield system to increase the construction progress of the South China Sea, the formation of relying on Hainan Island, Xisha Yongxing Island, the former a deep sea of ??the Nansha battlefield system, is imperative.
military cooperation: the defense of marine resources and rights
“United Nations Convention on Law of the Sea,” enters into force, countries began to compete for the oceans as the core of sovereignty by the reefs sea ??resources to the core interests of the direction of change. More FIMA and other countries also took a fancy to the South China Sea rich in oil and gas, fisheries and other natural resources, was willing to take risks long-term occupation of the South China Sea islands and reefs. Under the present circumstances, and actively develop the disputed waters of the South China Sea, the actual control is particularly important. As China’s maritime surveillance, fisheries administration and maritime police force continues to grow, its tonnage, and communication facilities have been able to form a navy echelon with the coordination of capacity.
Therefore, China through military cooperation and establish a reliable and effective military and maritime co-ordination mechanism, the “shelving disputes and seeking common development”, while firmly defending China in the South China Sea should have interests in marine resources .
reefs from South China Sea dispute over sovereignty in the long run to solve the South China Sea issue, and ultimately must address the sovereignty of the South China Sea islands and reefs occupied and ownership. At present, China has not yet fully released reefs point coordinates of the South China Sea, and South China Sea exclusive economic zone of the external boundaries. Along with the “economic strategy for the South China Sea” strategy of deepening military forces in peacetime and wartime protect national maritime rights and interests in the supporting role will be more apparent.
can be expected, the direction of the South China Sea, the Navy will assume more of the usual stand-alone or in collaboration with local law enforcement rights, the war will bear the historical mission of safeguarding national sovereignty and the island, while deterring other major powers outside the region Any attempt to interfere. China has always stood by diplomatic means, to resolve the territorial dispute through friendly consultations, but history has proven that a strong military force and is always full military preparations to defend and safeguard the national interests of the most reliable backup.
