Global Times: China and the U.S. military confidence-building from the South China Sea to start
data for: January 10, 2010, State Councilor and Defense Minister Liang Guanglie Bayi Building in Beijing to visit China, then U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates held a welcoming ceremony.
Sino-US strategic economic dialogue with the discussion of military mutual trust, and Chinese Defense Minister Liang Guanglie yesterday began a visit to the United States are the Sino-US military exchanges this year’s event. They will create a relaxed atmosphere to do a balanced mutual military to prevent the two countries have never actually relax. Sino-US relations, the atmosphere is always very important because it can narrow the meaning of the specific friction between the two countries and destructive.
Sino-US military mutual trust in the complex friction and vigilance of the Chinese offshore a little bit of accumulation, the formation of some digestion both sides strange behavior, and increase the adaptability of space. For future Sino-US military intentions in a larger scope to understand each other, do not misread, not to lay the foundation for speculation that the other side of the offensive.
this China and the United States should correct each other’s strategic positioning. The United States should not view China as the only play in the offshore land upstarts “in China’s interests throughout the world, the Chinese military forces there is a growing ability to delivery beyond the inevitable. Nor should the U.S. military in Asia exist as “illegal” and inconsistent with the special influence of the United States to world security from the heart. China should accept the United States is the reality of an important force in Asia.
China is determined to dominant in Asia, to drive away the forces of the United States or the United States at all costs to prevent the growth of China’s military, then the Sino-US military mutual trust will be hopeless. The problem is that Beijing and Washington have no idea, but there is no will to do so.
China and the United States is now in the stage, watch out for each other the two countries set against facilities in line and psychological line, there is a certain distance. To the two countries to avoid the rush toward confrontation possible. However, since the high-profile announcement to return to Asia, the South China Sea hot Sino-US military base line close to each other in a vague way.
although analysts believe that China-US military conflict in the South China Sea is unlikely, but formed two armies will of the game, and therefore the antagonistic muscle-flexing of the roundabout, then there is the South China Sea may be to establish mutual trust between China and the United States from the effects may be small but have not yet abandoned, to the uncontrolled release of mutual doubt and even hostility to the turning point.
Sino-US two countries to each other in the South China Sea to do things, a clear distinction between disputes with China and the Philippines, and Vietnam. Territorial disputes in the South China Sea between countries is a reality, the Philippines more for a small country is also the reality of China’s peaceful settlement of disputes of desire is never lower than the Philippines and Vietnam is also a reality. Philippines they want to weight of relying on the strength of the United States, overwhelming Chinese, so that the legalization of their aggressive behavior, and China off unacceptable.
the Philippines and Vietnam to deal with China to maintain respect for the country, if they are rough should be prepared to pay the cost of a small country in front of the big country. China should also respect the Philippines, and Vietnam, because if China really “bully” them, Beijing will face a catastrophic loss of international reputation. Counterweight in the middle of already exist.
if the United States passed to the outside world signal: the Philippines and Vietnam how to do, as long as the U.S. military presence in the South China Sea, they are safe, which constitutes a direct violation of China’s interests, the Sino-US military mutual trust about face combat. Regardless of the Sino-US military senior high in the two capitals of the five-star hotel to talk about “cooperation” and “transparent” are not useful.
U.S. absolute military superiority in the world in a very long time is difficult to shake, which should be used to maintain U.S. global influence, to prevent the emergence of a large military ambitions, and even this can also be in the U.S. economy force decline was used to maintain its relations with some countries. U.S. military forces must not be directly involved in maritime disputes in Western Pacific countries, can not be used to support the Philippines and Vietnam to Chinese provocation.
the South China Sea is the touchstone of the real attitude of China. China and the United States in the South China Sea, a silent dialogue, and some of the meaning of complex action will leave profound consequences, they will shape some of the key beliefs of the two countries each other as each other. ▲
