Hillary military advance Declaration: the United States to shift the focus of the Asia-Pacific
Recently, the United States, “Foreign Policy” magazine published a long article written by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton “America’s Pacific Century,” issued a “U.S. center of gravity must shift to the Asia-Pacific” sound. Today, near the end of the year, but also to the warm-up phase of the U.S. presidential election, Hillary’s a long article so much on behalf of the politician’s personal views, as it is a strategic military advance declaration.

Go to where the U.S. strategic focus, the focus turned to the military where
the introduction of a policy the United States often need to go through some controversy, which is determined by the characteristics of American politics. When the adjustments to the basic consensus of the time, how to adjust the focus of debate has become. Today, Afghan troops around the corner, is to withdraw the troops removed to the country, or turn to the Asia-Pacific? Obama made the beginning of his “return to Asia-Pacific”, and the first visit to Asia to break the practice, demonstrates a gesture.
asserted that “return” because for years the U.S. has not left the Asia-Pacific, but the Bush administration engaged in the war on terror and the Asia-Pacific matters have been neglected, Obama to restore American influence in the Asia Pacific region.
politics of the United States’ return to Asia “minor complaints. A time when Iraq and Afghanistan are still in transition, coupled with the impact of the financial crisis on the economy, the U.S. political arena isolationist ideas have increased. They argued that giving priority to urgent domestic problems, reduce the participation of international affairs.
where U.S. strategic interests, the U.S. military go where. In the eyes of U.S. policymakers, compared to the rest of the world, Asia is the United States should be as most areas. Hillary Clinton in the article refuted those claims not to continue to participate in global affairs “and on its head”, claims: “the consequences of not participating is far from what we can afford, from opening new markets for U.S. companies to curb nuclear proliferation, to maintain the Commerce and Navigation of free passage, we work in a foreign country is our national prosperity and security of the key. “
This warning does have their reasons. Around the world, the Soviet Union compete for Europe’s long past time, location and oil resources in the Middle East is important, but the long war on terror came to an end, after all, Latin America, the United States as a “backyard”, also mention the poor in Africa. Hillary’s eyes, the attractiveness of the Asia-Pacific region is coming to the United States: an open and rich Asia-Pacific Economic Zone vitality of the U.S. economic recovery provides a broad investment and trade market, which the United States for export-oriented economy is absolutely necessary.
Obama release to be “Pacific president” rhetoric, military coordinate becomes a matter of course. Currently, Washington’s strategic goal is the pursuit of the Asia-Pacific region to consolidate a US-led pattern. Shift in focus means that changes in investment, reflecting the change in the next year’s budget will be very obvious. Clinton stressed that “the next 10 years, U.S. foreign policy strategy is one of the most important mission of the Asia-Pacific region sharply increased diplomatic, economic, strategic and other inputs.”
sits the U.S. Pacific Command in Hawaii are active and close cooperation in this “mission.” Compared to the past, military exercises in the region have become increasingly frequent, prominent position in the Pacific commander to visit also increased the number of times.
as nothing to do with the South China Sea countries, Japan’s “multilateral solution” move aroused suspicion of the United States
Brzezinski has pointed out, Since 1949, the U.S. Far East policy has been based in Japan. Hillary In the article there is not much discussed Japan-US relations, she stressed the United States and Japan, South Korea, the United States and Australia bilateral alliance as the economic rise of Asia-Pacific region to build a favorable environment.
established last year is the 50th anniversary of the US-Japan alliance, we can say in shaping Asian security order, the United States has been placed on US-Japan alliance will be the most important position. In the post-Cold War era, Japan as a global economic power and security are protected country’s dual identity, led to its domestic US-Japan security alliance for the persistence and the desirability of the question. Especially since the financial crisis, the U.S. economic influence has decreased, from 2009, China replaced the U.S. as Japan’s largest export destination. U.S. economic and military does not match its bilateral alliances in the Asia Pacific region there have been signs of loosening.
to stop the U.S. military out of Japan, the U.S. military attempted to reinforce the Asia-Pacific through increased US-Japan military alliance. Japan Yukio Hatoyama early on trying to get rid governing control of the United States, engage in the integration of East Asia, but this way has the U.S. killed.
as the Diaoyu Islands, Japan “collision” occurred, Japan quickly changed its policy. Since then, the US-Japan alliance, the US-ROK alliance because “Cheonan incident” and Yin Ping Island incident, North Korean artillery has been strengthened. However, the Japanese political confusion and frequent changes of leadership, but also worried about the reasons for the U.S. to Japan, the United States is always beware of Japan off the big U.S. and in Asia, said the attempt.
October this year, the ruling barely a month into the new cabinet of Japan’s diplomatic activities of a busy period. It is worth noting that Japanese Foreign Minister Ichiro Genba to visit Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, three, and actively promote joint Southeast Asian countries to promote the South China Sea so-called “multilateral solution.”
as nothing to do with the South China Sea countries, Japan, United States, a move that apparently caused suspicion. In response, Clinton also reminded Japan, the U.S. hegemony is still the master of the Pacific century. The article points out, “despite the league was very successful, but we can not just be satisfied with the status quo, but must be constantly updated to adapt to a changing world.”
Hillary Clinton referred to “frame” the subtext is, “the US-led”
in the eyes of some politicians, “9.11″ as part of the development opportunities in emerging countries, mainly the United States ten years the war on terror involves too much energy, resulting in no time East Gu, China and India as the representative of the Asian economies were able to obtain a new round of development. U.S. fears further lead to changes in the economic status of the leadership change, which is the United States can not be tolerated.
high, but the U.S. economy in China, will use the military to safeguard regional hegemony. U.S. concerns about China’s challenge is similar to the Pacific when the Japanese leadership concerns. China’s “explosive growth” to make Americans feel this fear more and more necessary to curb the recent U.S. policy toward China has become the keynote.
Hillary Clinton said in the article Sino-US relations “stakeholders, can not fail”, and said, “We are advancing the process will be relations with China continue to be placed in a broader regional security alliance, economic and social ties within the framework of the network. “
fact , Southeast Asian countries to seize the South China Sea dispute with the U.S. involvement in the South China Sea is interdependent, to ensure freedom of navigation in the United States in the South China Sea as the main excuse for the U.S. military, and thrown against the PLA’s “empty war” theory. In September, the U.S. government announced a total of up to $ 5.852 billion in arms sales plan, so that President Obama took office two years had reached eight years of President George W. Bush Bacheng arms sales amount. There is no doubt that Hillary Clinton referred to “frame”, the subtext is, “the US-led.”
the United States to prevent the Indian Navy into the Pacific Ocean intentions clear. U.S. seeks Asian balance of power considerations for a long time more to encourage and support India’s development, but not without limits.
India is not the Pacific, but since its implementation of “Look East” policy has been continuously strengthened and Southeast Asia, Northeast Asian countries of interaction, active in East Asia and Pacific affairs. Play an important influence in the Pacific region, is seeking great power status in India an important step. South China Sea to the Pacific Ocean is the only way in India, India has long coveted the South China Sea, the recent positive developments in India and Vietnam in the South China Sea regional cooperation by the Chinese protest, while a certain extent, also caused the U.S. alert. U.S. military also has a strategy to strengthen the Asia-Pacific attempt to stop the Russian Navy is the south Pacific. This year Russia was held in the North Pacific large-scale military exercises, and sent into the Sea of ??Japan, long-range strategic bombers repeatedly threat to U.S. aircraft carrier in Japan, the U.S. military was shocked.
this, the addition to NATO’s eastward expansion and U.S. missile defense system to further squeeze Russia’s strategic space, in the Asia Pacific region Russia also stepped up contacts and prevention. On the one hand by the allies in Japan on various occasions stressed the common threat of China, trying to cover for an attempt to curb Russia’s military. On the other hand, to prevent the same for the arms-producing countries of Russia, neighboring countries, the South China Sea to grab more and more fire arms purchase orders.
once provoked the conflict to become a major military conflict, Southeast Asian countries will become a frontline state
in the history of hegemonic countries have a common characteristic, that is, by virtue of military forces and unequal trade and plunder resources to achieve domination. Objectively speaking, the U.S. long-term accumulation of a huge military force, constitute the core of America’s most strategic advantage. America’s global hegemonic system depends on its deep-rooted large military complex, which includes a huge military-industrial complex, pro-war neo-conservative government, think tanks and media propaganda for war. Arms industry and a long war has become a major U.S. trading. For the United States in the Asia Pacific to launch a war, not only helps to stimulate the sales of arms, more importantly, can rely on to fight to maintain the dominance of the United States.
Asia so far to maintain the status quo of peace for nearly 30 years, economic growth in 20 years, thanks to friendly countries for common development. Now, as the United States where the pot of gold out of the financial crisis to force to hold economic interests, is bound to the region by provoking the conflict to find opportunities.
the four northern islands contradictions, contradictions in the Korean Peninsula, Taiwan Strait conflict, the South China Sea conflicts have become U.S. Keziliyong war conditions, no matter to which to stir up conflict to become a major military conflict, Southeast Asian countries will become a frontline state. U.S. attempts, if successful, will suffer Southeast Asian countries.
