Global Times: Huangyan Island crisis should be a turning point in the South China Sea policy
data for: 310 on board of the Chinese fishery patrol in the Huangyan Island fishery law enforcement officers are the flag-raising.
Huangyan Island, the Philippines, conflict has been a month, Chinese society has been dragged into a lot of energy. We had gas, with tit for tat than a lot of the Philippines said a lot of hard words, the military probably do the plans for the use of force when necessary. But objectively speaking, we can not do so on the Huangyan Island, the Philippines, the complete cessation of provocation can not do it “shut up”. If extended to the entire South China Sea, we tortured there will be many.
we probably deal with their own state of mind to do some finishing, so that we are faced with any provocation adequate mental courage of your convictions, not easily anger, in particular, do not panic, truly ease.
First, we as East Asia’s largest, fastest-growing global strategic forces are confident that the direction for the solution to address the South China Sea issue. In other words, regardless of the Philippines and Vietnam What’ve, the United States what action, all this can stop the rise of China for us to defend the territorial integrity and sovereignty will support. As long as China is determined to not give up on the South China Sea islands, the Philippines and Vietnam and their occupation can only be the history of a momentary state.
Second, China a few years ago sea power is weak, long-term guarding the Spratly Islands and other practical difficulties, the Philippines and Vietnam, and the advantage of the loophole, which is a pity. Eliminate it, we need to take the realism and idealism, and not engage in do not have impulse.
third and the Huangyan Island crisis should serve as a turning point in this crisis, we must not only consolidate China’s sovereignty over the island, but also to convey a clear message to all relevant aspects: the expression of Chinese the goodwill has been expressed over who revert to Chinese provocation, our bottom line is not it polite.
Fourth, China needs to calmly deal with the South China Sea conflict, at least two meanings: First, our attitude should be very firm, uncompromising, not long-winded with the aggressor. Second, we have the magnanimity of the great powers, to make a move to a type of entanglement can not follow such a small country in the Philippines, nor can the whole society’s attention is concentrated to the point of conflict. Many of our things at the same time what to do had to do.
we have to know that the territorial dispute is basically a zero-sum game, and the public that reasonable, rational woman and she said, can not be consensus. Negotiations are often relaxed atmosphere, to control the situation in the intensity of the process, or to help achieve the exchange of interests. In the fully open condition of public opinion, the possibility to resolve territorial disputes through equal negotiation will become smaller and smaller.
Only in the Philippines suffered a loss and the painful lessons of the case, it can be “nice” to seek the negotiating table, the pursuit of the Huangyan Island conflict “nothing”. Or talk about them will rupture, the Philippines ourselves to give will be better the pain is forgotten.
the Philippines, things will be very tortuous diplomatic and maritime law enforcement agencies can only be handed over to the Chinese public opinion tracking for some time also with tired, turned to other hotspots. This is normal. If 1.3 billion people every day, staring at the mouth of the Members of the Philippines and put what gun, but it is funny.
China is vigorously developed in the world, and gradually restore the losses of the past due to lack of power or nap and eat on the South China Sea, we will become increasingly easy to do. What we really need to do in the future, the balance to solve the South China Sea issue and maintain the rise of China, the international strategic environment.
we have a lot of initiative, we make any decision room for maneuver will be more broad. As long as we do not have a temporary detail embarrassed himself, embarrassed that our strength will gradually disappear in the South China Sea.share: related topics: ocean surveillance ship in the South China Sea and Philippine warships confrontation
