increasingly conceited by more and more criticism, but Chinese analysts that around the South China Sea disputes wrong in China. They are convinced that Beijing’s action is necessary, to protect the country’s legitimate interests, is a sound cable States “provocative” reasonable response.
Chinese experts generally believe that in recent years, the South China Sea tension attributed to the conspiracy of the United States and other sound cable States. Without Washington’s support and high-profile return to Asia, countries in the region to challenge China. Many people firmly believe that Washington is the use of soft containment South China Sea issue in Beijing. The United States talking about the freedom of navigation, is to safeguard Washington in China’s exclusive economic zone, a military reconnaissance of freedom. South China Sea issue is attributed to other parties, which indicates that Beijing is unlikely to seriously reflect on their strategies and actions, or substantial change in the South China Sea policy. It is more likely to continue tough to treat the actions of Sound Cable countries in the region, and limit the role of the U.S. As for China, the United States, whether the holding of such chips, remains to be seen.
in recent years, Chinese commentators often remarked that Beijing should abandon its passive stance in favor of a more active development of the South China Sea resources. Can not be indefinitely keeping a low profile. With the rapid increase in deep-sea exploration technology to improve and law enforcement forces, these proposals may soon become a reality.
maritime disputes also stimulated nationalist sentiments in China. Chinese netizens often to other countries, especially the more Philippine-US express a very harsh view.
all this is not conducive to a moderate policy in the South China Sea. However, other factors will prevent confrontation broke out: Chinese care about relations with Southeast Asian countries; strategic competition with the United States at a disadvantage; priority to the development of the domestic economy. These may inhibit China to move toward open confrontation. Beijing seems to recognize the strategic situation in East Asia in self-defeating, aggressive will only deepen the China suspicion in many parts of the country. In fact, most experts and officials in China, in recent years, the South China Sea dispute has resulted in the deterioration of the regional security environment. Take a confrontational stance will only further contribute to the political and security role of the United States in the region, to increase the involvement of other big countries such as Japan, India.
this non-confrontational ego may continue to dominate the behavior of the Chinese in the South China Sea. Beijing from time to time to show aggressive, but will not let the tensions and contradictions upgraded to a major confrontation. Under appropriate conditions, China will not hesitate to take the “damage control” measures to repair relations with the relevant parties in order to justify domestic public.
