Hong Kong, “Asia Times Online on May 8, the original question: defect outside of the area denial strategy has been circulating this statement: the Chinese military’s combat capability is significantly improved, can refuse the United States at arm’s length outside. Anti-access/area denial is a wonderful slogan, means that the coastal artillery, warplanes and warships of the People’s Liberation Army to stop the U.S. rapid deployment forces in the Pacific. However, this is just how worried?
U.S. military exercise held in Alaska in April this year, part of the answer. As the context of this exercise into the long-range strike, it is clear the goal is.
since the mid-1990s by President Clinton, humiliation, the PLA began to create anti-access/area denial doctrine, one of the most important weapon is known as the “carrier killer” Dongfeng 21D anti-ship ballistic missile, Beidou satellite and other numerous weapons systems, nuclear arsenals. The United States in the use of conventional weapons to attack the Chinese, may encounter problems. Only a small fraction of B-2 bomber with stealth capabilities, which make the most of the bombers vulnerable to Chinese air defense system attacks. In addition, the number of the U.S. military’s F-22 fighter is less than 200, the F-35, not even production.
Nevertheless, experts still believe that the advantages of the United States against China did not lose. China expert of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Oliver Broughton Inari, the concept of China’s anti-intervention area is difficult to penetrate, has been greatly exaggerated, “The United States remains the world’s number one military power,” he said, America’s allies in the region may will take over some of the dirty work, “Washington has reiterated its commitment to the security of the Asia-Pacific region. but this is not just dependent on the U.S. military forces. the future, America’s allies in the region will take over greater responsibility for security.”
Steve Tang, University of Nottingham, China Policy Institute, Beijing refused in its anti-intervention/regional capacity assessment only been misled, “anti-ship missiles do not actually think like Beijing as crucial. the main aircraft carriers and other warships were severely damaged and not enough to stop the U.S. military to achieve its political will. “the United States already has a plan to deal with the ability of the PLA anti-access. China and the United States are playing cat and mouse, with the changes in technology development, the situation will continue to change, “game-changer will not make the game end. PLA can prove accurate and effective anti-ship ballistic missiles, the United States will only need to use different tactics and weapons systems to respond to minimize the risk. “
U.S. Naval War College, James Holmes, said the restricted area of ??operations in China despite the risks, but the U.S. military quite on suicide operations. “He still see this as a serious challenge, not because China or Iran can block specific areas, and refused the U.S. military into a high price, but because they will dare to enter the army in these areas,” unless the U.S. policy makers are willing to pay these costs, the wartime impossible to send troops into the hazardous area. China concluded that the importance of the U.S. Pacific Fleet, Washington over Taiwan.
