I should calm to look at the ring too exercise: No invitation is not necessarily the enemy
June 29, U.S. warships to participate in the Pacific Rim -2012 “military exercises “Higgins” from entering the USA and Hawaii’s Pearl Harbor – Hickam base. Xinhua News Agency/AFP June 29, the period of five weeks, “Pacific Rim -2012″ military exercises in Hawaii waters began. “Pacific Rim” exercises began in 1971, this year is the 23rd. “Pacific Rim -2012″ exercises with 22 countries participating, the participation of about 25,000 soldiers, is the largest scale in the previous exercise. This year, Russia was invited to the first time, and thus highlights the absence of China.
In this regard, we have to calm look. First of all, not whether invited to standard as the division of the enemy. Looking at the previous exercises, the United States are often the choice of participating countries, as a political means. The series of exercises at first for the Soviet Pacific Fleet, and now it has invited Russia to participate. It is not difficult to see that the invitation is not necessarily true friend, an invitation is not necessarily true enemy. In particular, to avoid the condemnation asking for trouble, but should not therefore affect the normal relations between China and other participating countries.
Secondly, should be seen through the exercises in real terms. The end of the Cold War, “Pacific Rim” exercises have been gradually evolved by the drill Union operations to explore the multi-national maritime military cooperation. This is reflected in the exercise content is evident in recent several exercises in addition to surface ship warfare, amphibious landing operations, antisubmarine warfare, air defense, naval blockade, and other traditional subjects remain, humanitarian assistance, maritime search and rescue, anti-piracy content the proportion is rising. Now, the exercise has become a means of U.S. military and diplomatic. The exercise is to return to the Asia-Pacific a force declaration of political significance than military significance, military symbolism rather than practical significance, it emphasizes the fact the power of presence and political influence.
