British media: U.S. air and maritime warfare program provocation to the Chinese, or by war
British “Financial Times” published in Chinese, June 1 entitled “U.S. military’s new strategy has been strongly criticized,” the article pointed out that the new version of the U.S. military policy has a strong legacy of the Cold War, “Air Sea Battle,” will the U.S. push into the provocative war planning against China, and dangerous. Article along the following lines:
new version of the U.S. military policy designed to counter China’s military challenge to a certain extent, the United States was strongly criticized at home and abroad, said unnecessarily to the United States the most powerful economic partnership put on a provocative gesture.
adjusted in the U.S. global strategic plan to increase attention to Asia on the occasion, the air and sea war “(AirSea Battle) operations” concept “strive to maintain military superiority in the region with strategic importance. China’s military build-up during the past 20 years, was worried about the Pentagon, is gradually opened the curtain of this guiding ideology.However,
in the United States make every effort to relations with China to grasp the appropriate balance between competition and cooperation on the occasion, some people (including even some people within the U.S. military) warned that this new military doctrine will unnecessarily angered the Chinese.
“Air Sea Battle, in demonizing China,” retired Admiral and former Vice-Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff James Cartwright, James Cartwright, said last week. “It is not in anyone’s interests.”
this new military doctrine has a strong legacy of the Cold War. In the 1970s, U.S. military planners worried about the threat of Soviet troops swept across Western Europe, the development known as ground integrated battle “(AirLand Battle) combat doctrine. From new weapons to the relationship between the United States and its allies, this doctrine is largely the basis of the late Cold War U.S. military policy.
in influencing the policies and strategies of the next 20 years, Air Sea Battle, “may play an equally important role. The officials said it looks to consolidate the alliance of the United States in Asia, and to counter other countries to develop “anti-access/area denial” (anti-access and area-denial) weapons and combat power.
“This is most likely today and challenge (in our opinion) the near future, the most characteristic of the times,” Minister of Naval Operations, Admiral Jonathan Greenert (Admiral Jonathan Greenert The) said last week.
U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta (Leon Panetta,) next week will travel to Asia, the ally of the United States to explain the meaning of this military doctrine.
gradually withdrawing U.S. troops in Iraq and the war in Afghanistan on the occasion, the new military policy of trying to deal with the U.S. to face major strategic themes: the rise of Asia; the center of gravity adjustment required by the boundaries of the vast Asia-Pacific region (r and focuses on sea and air power); and the importance of network warfare.
However, the development of the Air Sea Battle, background and the development of military doctrine during the Cold War background starker. Year against the Soviet Union, the United States and its hardly any trade and economic ties; the United States and China have deep-seated economic and trade exchanges – from trade to the United States government bonds.
in this delicate political context, U.S. officials insisted in public, Air Sea Battle, “is not a country, or even a region, but with many countries ( may also include non-state entities) is developing technology related.
this idea should not be bundled with any particular scene together, “Norton Schwartz, U.S. Air Force Chief of Staff, Admiral (General Norton Schwartz,) last week asked about China as the main target .
but U.S. officials have privately acknowledged that, from a sinking battleship ballistic missiles, submarines and China’s growing strength of network warfare, China’s investment in the “anti-access” weapons the Pentagon worried, and this The type of weapon is air and sea war “have to deal with.
U.S. introduction of the new military policy of the occasion coincides with the Pentagon budget cuts. The Pentagon has been budget cuts of $ 485 billion in the next 10 years, if the U.S. Congress can not be reached this year a comprehensive budget agreement, the Pentagon may be forced once again to cut a similar amount of budget. To effectively implement the doctrine of the “Air Sea Battle,” need to be making substantial investments in new long-range bombers, warships and submarines, and cyber warfare capabilities.
“over the past 12 years, if you want, basically, we can arrange the budget,” a senior planning officials in the Pentagon, Lieutenant General George Flynn (, Lieutenant General George Flynn,) “The financial aspects of the new reality will require us to make a choice.”
However, the Pentagon does not mince their point of view, namely, in the long-term strategy in Asia is a top priority. “Your generation will have to face one of the key projects is to maintain and enhance the strengths of the United States in the vast Pacific Ocean,” Panetta last week in Annapolis (U.S. Naval Academy) to the U.S. Naval Academy graduates .
some observers opinion, “Air Sea Battle,” will the U.S. push for China, a dangerous provocation of war planning. One of the Pentagon’s public file joint operations involved in the concept “(Joint Operational Access the Concept) suggested that in the case of any conflict, the U.S. military against enemy anti-access/area denial defense in depth to combat.” Chinese anti-ship missiles, for example, that means preparing for the launch of large-scale pre-emptive attacks on the Chinese mainland’s military bases.
major risk is that such attacks will lead to the dramatic escalation of the situation, China might even think the goal is to eliminate China’s nuclear forces, the Australian National University (Australian National University), Raoul sea Yinlixisi (by Raoul Heinrichs,) said. (Jeff Dyer/Ho Li)
