U.S. Cable News Network reported on June 18, the original title: China’s military modernization is cause for concern because it? “Aircraft carrier is a tool of imperialism, they just sit back duck,” a Beijing official says a group of overseas visitors, “China never made aircraft carrier.” That was in 1971, when China’s poor and isolated, Mao Zedong Thought under the command of its military. Today, Beijing is the times and reposition its military strategy, the carrier is preparing to water. “It will help China to resolve the maritime territorial disputes,” the U.S. National Defense University, National Institute for Strategic Studies senior fellow Chris Young said, “Secondly, and perhaps most importantly, it is the rise of China as a symbol of world power.”
many Chinese apparently want to have aircraft carriers. May, China’s official media, a survey showed that 81.3% of respondents support China-made aircraft, more than 75% of people think that China needs aircraft carriers against foreign invasion. China’s military is a modified aircraft carrier purchased from Ukraine, which is expected later this year joined the Chinese navy fleet. “China’s strategy is to win a high-tech regional war, and in numerous international environment, respond to a variety of threats,” military commentator Song Chung Ping (voice) told CNN, “the purpose is to resist the enemy outside the borders. “
as the world’s second largest economy, China recognized the need to extend its authority and defend the economic interests of growth. People’s Liberation Army is building a blue water navy and air force as a pivot. Earlier this year, China opened a new stealth fighter F -20 veil, some military observers said it could emulate the U.S. F-22 fighters. This is the latest in a series of restructuring moves, this was huge but poorly equipped and highly politicized revolutionary army is transformed into a modern, professional fighting force.
People’s Liberation Army have come a long way. “Cultural Revolution” period, China did not even rank system. The late 1980s, before this mess off the military uniform of olive green, put a star and the insignia of tailor-made uniforms. Since 1985, China phased disarmament million to the People’s Liberation Army into a leaner, more efficient units, to enhance the morale of this world’s largest army. Meanwhile, the development of advanced weapons to China is the only importance to economic development over the past few years to make up for the losses back.
in the 1970s, China initiated the “four modernizations” construction, national defense, ranked last. The Gulf war in 1990, senior Chinese military shock, awe with which they have witnessed on television the U.S. military used live cruise missiles, smart bombs and stealth bombers quickly give the enemy a devastating blow. China began soon big arms purchases in order to upgrade the Air Force and Navy arsenal, and master the increasingly complex (weapons) systems.
China to increase defense budget, in addition to payment of salaries and daily military spending, mostly for the purchase of new equipment and weapons. Money into the military will also develop different strategies, including network warfare. China said its defense spending by international standards, relatively low military spending increase is reasonable. However, the pace of China’s military growth, lack of transparency on the scope and direction, making the neighbors and the U.S. concerns. The news about China’s aircraft carrier is stirred into the water waves, said Chris Young, “The biggest problem is that China will be how and where people use their aircraft carrier.” Young People’s Liberation Army that eventually even a fully functional aircraft carrier into the water, it will not that China has a full range of cooperative engagement capability, “the carrier is a very complex machine with many moving parts. control aircraft carrier air wing, for the carrier to provide air, surface and underwater defense, aircraft supplies, and operator training, ( China) have a long way to go. “▲ (author of Jimmy Frost Cruz, Yang Meng translation)
