Experts said the Sino-Russian vessel formation is not through the so-called Japan Strait
data for: will participate in this joint exercise, the Russian Pacific Fleet flagship Glory cruiser.
the Xinhua Zhuangao: Generally speaking, the joint military exercises between the multinational will become the focus of media attention, and participating international joint military exercise, I am afraid not escape the media stir-fried . The upcoming joint maritime -2012, “Sino-Russian joint naval exercises, although not yet begun, but has been speculation by the media storm.
then, the media what interpretation? These interpretations are “fly”?
“massive” joint maritime exercises – the scale is not big
two days ago, I have received a media friend called telephone and asked if I can the Sino-Russian naval exercises to do one o’clock the analysis and interpretation. The first question he asked me is: The “massive” joint military exercises at sea, the size of the end how much?
At that time I asked him a “massive” these three words: Where did you get? He told me to see from the Internet. Internet search, and indeed almost all of the interpretation of comments in the exercise dubbed “massive” in the name.
I can not help but feel a bit baffling. The “large scale” how much? How to define the size of the exercise it?
Speaking of “massive”, to be targeted, that is, depending on who has more. Hard targets than the mentioned large-scale, can be said to exercise high level, the number of participating troops, weapons quality. But in fact, the joint naval exercises, from the above terms are not really a large-scale joint naval exercises.
Russian armed forces in 2005, held the “Peace Mission 2005″ joint military exercises, when both sides of the participating military services, including armed forces, and the upcoming “joint maritime -2012″ just sent out the two sides naval forces. From the number of troops, weapons, and arms, “Peace Mission 2005″ not only surface ships and submarines, as well as shore-based air force, marines, paratroopers and army troops, “maritime joint -2012″ is mainly Navy surface ships force. From the perspective of a joint maritime -2012 “and” Peace Mission 2005 “, apparently not really a” massive “exercise.
let horizontal comparison. That may be in the Asia-Pacific region, will have a number of bilateral or multilateral joint military exercises between. The famous US-Japan joint exercises, and the US-ROK joint military exercises, and so on. Compared with these exercises to define the scale of the exercise is also difficult to use “mass” in the name.
If you must say “massive”, that is the largest in recent years, “Russian armed forces at sea joint exercises. The reason why this argument is more reasonable, since the “Peace Mission 2005″ after seven years of time, the Chinese and Russian Navy does not in this area, held joint military exercises of such a scale. So, “the largest in recent years say it is more reasonable.
In fact, the above analysis exposes another problem, that is, the Sino-Russian joint naval exercise frequency is quite low, the last large-scale joint exercises separated by seven years.
exercises fleet through Japan Strait “- where they come from Japan Strait”?
on the exercise of all kinds of interpretation among the most puzzling is – “the naval vessels of the Russian armed forces will join the fleet through the Straits of Japan.”
see this argument on the map repeatedly check, no one has found a place called “Japan Strait. According to common sense to infer that Russia’s Pacific Fleet, from Vladivostok to reach Qingdao local Chinese waters, the best possible route is through the Tsushima Strait. We all know that Strait was known as the Korea Strait between the Korean Peninsula and Japan, among the wide waters, this part of the Strait between the Falklands and the Japanese archipelago known as the Tsushima Strait, and is not a called “Japan Strait” Strait, “Fleet exercises through Japan Strait,” this argument is clearly wrong.
also possible that slip of the tongue or slip of the pen – exercise the fleet through the “Japan Strait, but the Sea of ??Japan. However, we need to figure out a concept, whether it is the Sea of ??Japan, or the so-called “Japan’s Strait, they are merely a geographical concept. Sea of ??Japan, “Japan Sea” If this really Japan Strait, nor is it the “Straits”. This part of the waters and the Strait, waters, mostly in international waters, the Straits of the international waterway. In international waters or international waterways, ships of any country is a lawful and reasonable. For an idea, the waters in this region and the Straits, China and Russia has the right to keep and maintain their own right to free navigation by sea. Therefore, in the exercise of which, no matter through which the Straits, they do not enter the territorial waters of Japan, is a completely normal thing.
exercise timing – no mystery
very concerned about the timing of the exercise, as well as exercises for the object, take exercise timing and exercise objects. for the thing a lot. A lot of interpretation that the joint maritime -2012 “The timing of numerous mystery: US-Philippine joint military exercises, tensions on the Korean Peninsula, the islands and waters of the dispute between Japan and neighboring countries. Therefore, the interpretation of said “The exercise is quite tricky on the timing.
So, there really so much mystery?
as early as August 2011, the Chinese army’s visit to Russia, the two sides have been identified at this time this year, this place held a joint naval exercises. Clearly, both the US-Philippine exercises, or other surrounding the evolution of the situation, in fact, are not interested in finding such a so-called “full of mystery” opportunity. The timing of the exercise in and around all sorts of events linked to obviously read too much into the suspect.
exercises for the object – is not directed against any third-party
exercise timing too much mystery , then exercise what for who? Also have a wide range of interpretation in this regard, the typical argument is that “the Sino-Russian joint naval exercises, especially the Chinese and Russian naval fleet will by ‘Japan Strait’, Japan feel more pressure.” The implication, The joint exercises of the Russian Navy for Japan and other countries.
on this issue, whether it is the Russian military or China’s military, have made it clear that the exercise is not directed against any third party. The view from the purpose of exercises is set, the more reflected replenishment at sea, rescue, counter-terrorism, escort and anti-piracy. According to the news of the Russian side, a Russia participating ships just the end of the escort mission in Gulf of Aden, and rushed over to participate in exercises from the direction of the Gulf of Aden. This is also a certain degree confirmed the exercise more of a maritime security issues of common concern for the international community. Over the years, the Chinese Navy has been participating in international convoy in the Gulf of Aden, also accumulated considerable experience in this regard. In this case, the navies of China and Russia to consult on this issue, exchange, and then this subjects during an exercise, we should say is a normal thing.
from another point of view, the Sino-Russian joint naval exercise is also a military and transparent process. Because the two countries’ armies of joint military exercises you want to put together training and exercises, on both sides are clearly a high-level military and transparent process. At the same time, the exercise can be said in the media, and even neighboring countries under the watchful eyes, which is obviously a very high military and transparent process. So from this perspective, through the so-called “Japan Strait, Japan, the matter should not be feeling the pressure, in this process, could have arrived in a near way to observe, to look at this The Navy in the end of the two countries is a state of the subjects they exercise what is transparent to be more practical and more, than just stop at writing military.
media interpreted over
Although the exercise has not yet begun, the interpretation of the exercise has been overwhelming. These interpretation gives the overall feeling is the word – excessive. This over-interpretation of what comes from where?From the current situation, the excessive interpretation, on the one hand, the demand from the media itself to attract the eye. For the media, as far as possible the news event bigger, make even more popular. From the communication point of view, this is understandable, so we’ll see a lot of excessive, or even do not fly interpretation.
However, the interpretation as well as from some other ideas of the parties concerned can not be ignored. For example, the so-called “through Japan Strait, to make Japan feel the pressure of the interpretation, it gives a sense of ulterior motives. (Chen Hu)
