Washington again angered Beijing



The US Department of Defense published a new report on the military preparation of the PRC in 2016. The open part of this research became available to the American public 13 this May. In accordance with the requirement of the congress, the Pentagon has published annually the results of a study of China’s military potential since 2000. Beijing repeatedly and in a rather harsh manner expressed its disagreement with such actions by the US Department of Defense specialists. A similar opinion was expressed by the PRC leadership regarding the last report, on the cover page of which a note was made that it cost the Pentagon 95 thousand dollars.

COMPLEX ANALYSIS


In the six chapters of his rather lengthy document, the volume of which together with the application is 144 pages, the experts of the American military considered in great detail all areas of military construction of the PRC this year and the prospects for the development of the People’s Liberation Army of China (PLA) in the next 20 years.

As noted in the document, the comprehensive modernization of the PLA entered a new phase last year, when Beijing embarked on a major reform of the organizational structure of its Armed Forces. The essence of this transformation was to further strengthen the control of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) over the Armed Forces, to increase the PLA’s combat capabilities to conduct joint operations for the armed forces and service arms, and also to increase the readiness of the armed forces to move out of China for participation in a short-term operation. high degree of intensity in the elimination of armed conflicts in regions located at a considerable distance from the PRC.

Leaders of the People's Republic of China, as American military experts emphasize, are actively looking for ways to strengthen their capabilities in the military, diplomatic and economic fields in order to establish their regional advantage, as well as to strengthen and expand their international influence. The Beijing leadership believes that the modernization of the PLA is one of the most important factors in achieving the status of a great power, which the PRC Chairman Xi Jinping calls the “Chinese dream” of national revival. Chinese leaders argue that a powerful army is an essential tool for protecting national interests and deterring various countries from harming China and ensuring that its sovereign requirements are respected.

During the past year, the PRC leadership continued to conduct activities to assert its sovereign claims in the East China and South China Seas. In the East China Sea, shipping zones in the area of ​​the Senkaku Islands (Diaoyu), claimed by Japan, are controlled by Chinese patrol vessels and airplanes. And in the South China Sea, China considers the Nansha Islands (Spartley), which are claimed by several states. Although these islands do not provide Beijing with any strategic advantage or additional rights in this region, its leadership can use this territory as a military base, a civilian settlement and significantly strengthen its presence in the waters of this sea.

China demonstrates its intention to tolerate growing tensions with other countries and to protect its territorial interests, especially in the indicated seas. However, Beijing is trying to avoid direct and tough conflict with Washington. The PRC leaders understand that the growing instability of the situation and the direct military confrontation between the two countries can nullify the pace of economic development in China, which is the key to the dominant position of the CPC. Therefore, in the near future, Beijing will take all measures to softly protect its territorial and maritime interests and prevent the possibility of armed conflicts.

In the long term, PRC leaders will pay increasing attention to the development of military capabilities, which, in their opinion, are necessary in order to keep their opponents, including the United States, from using force or defeating them in the event of a conflict. Modernization of the PLA is aimed at developing such technologies that in the future should significantly reduce the military superiority of the American Armed Forces.

Beijing officially announced that in the 2006 – 2015 years, taking into account inflation, the PLA budget has increased by an average of 9,8% annually. The PRC leadership also noted that in the foreseeable future, despite the slowdown in economic growth, military spending will constantly increase.

China's leaders continue to prepare for a possible conflict in the Taiwan Strait. It is for this reason that the new contingent of the Armed Forces of China, located in the East and South China Sea and on the Korean Peninsula, is of particular importance for Beijing. Moreover, Pentagon analysts point out that, due to the growing international influence of China and the expansion of its interests, the PLA development program is becoming more and more focused on increasing defense spending and developing military infrastructure so that a military operation can be conducted outside the country. The PRC expands its military presence in various regions of the world, provides protection to shipping, participates in the fight against pirates and in peacekeeping actions, and also provides humanitarian assistance to various countries in the event of a natural disaster. In November last year, China announced the signing of an 10-year contract for the construction of a military base in Djibouti (Africa), which will become Beijing’s first military base abroad. According to some experts, China already has a plan to build approximately 20 naval bases along the coast of the Indian Ocean. This document is called "Pearl Thread".

China continues to increase its military capabilities. The country is developing intensive development of medium-range and short-range ballistic missiles with conventional warheads and long-range cruise missiles to destroy ground and sea targets. In addition, space weapons are being created, as well as EW and cyber warfare tools.

Experts point out that, despite some increase in China’s military potential over the past two decades, it’s still not entirely clear how Chinese aircraft that have not participated in large-scale military operations for more than 30 years will be ready for effective action. in the upcoming wars.

The US DoD views relations with China as part of the White House's strategy in the Asia-Pacific region. Washington argues that its policy of engagement with the PRC is based on the fact that both sides should closely cooperate in areas where their interests coincide and constructively resolve the contradictions that arise.

The report of the American War Department states that, while strengthening military cooperation with Beijing, Washington continues to monitor the PLA’s strategic installations, its military doctrine and directions of military construction. At the same time, he constantly calls on the PRC for the transparency of its military preparations and intends to constantly adapt its armed forces to repel a possible threat, maintain world order, and also protect its allies and friends from external aggression, which may also come from Beijing.

FINE FRAUD


The official representative of the Ministry of Defense of China, Yang Yujun, as reported by the Xinhua news agency, said that the country's defense department was extremely dissatisfied with the Pentagon’s next report on the development of the PRC in the military and security sector for 2016. He said that the conclusion of the analysts of the Ministry of Defense caused “serious dissatisfaction” and “strong protest” in the PRC, and that their conclusion “seriously undermines mutual trust”.

According to the representative, the report “continues to inflate the hackneyed topics” about the military threat from the PRC, unreasonably asserts the lack of transparency in the construction of the Chinese Armed Forces, “deliberately distorts” Beijing’s defense policy and deliberately “incorrectly” interprets and assesses the PRC events held in the East China and the South China Seas, stating that China is planning to expand its military infrastructure this year, including the establishment of a communications and surveillance system, on artificial islands in the South China Sea.

“China is pursuing a national defense policy, which is essentially defensive,” said Yujun. He also added that building up the country's military potential and PLA reform is aimed at preserving China’s national sovereignty, security and territorial integrity, as well as its peaceful development.

A representative of the Ministry of Defense of the People's Republic of China accused the American side of “unjustified” assessment of the direction of reforming the Chinese Armed Forces, military operations abroad, developing weapons and military equipment, defense spending, space military programs, using the Internet for intelligence purposes, relations with Taiwan and many other issues of military construction.

"The Chinese side expresses sharp discontent and a strong objection to the American report," he said. Yang Yujun stressed that “the so-called report on China’s military and security development published by the US side year after year seriously damages bilateral mutual trust and runs counter to the development trend of interstate and military ties between China and the United States.”

“We demand that the American side stop making statements and implement actions that do not benefit Chinese-American relations and mutual trust in the military sphere, and take real steps to promote the healthy and stable development of interstate and military ties between China and the United States,” the military official said.

Beijing has repeatedly expressed its sharp outrage at the Pentagon reports on the Chinese Armed Forces. China's leadership believes that, when issuing such reports annually, the White House ignores the real facts and subjects the Chinese government to unfounded accusations, which conducts the normal construction of its armed forces in order to ensure the country's national security.

Recently, official Beijing demanded that the United States immediately stop reconnaissance flights of American military aircraft over the coastal regions of China, which pose a threat to the country's national security. Such a statement 19 May this year. made the official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the PRC Hong Lei.

“It should be noted that American military aircraft are constantly making close flights over the coastal regions of China, carrying out intelligence activities, representing a huge threat to the security of China in the air and at sea,” declared Hong Lei.

"We demand from the United States to immediately stop close reconnaissance flights and to prevent the occurrence of such cases in the future," the diplomat added. He also stated that the Chinese fighters did indeed pursue an American reconnaissance aircraft that made a reconnaissance flight near the Chinese island of Hainan, but the pilots kept a safe distance and did not make any dangerous maneuvers. Hong Lei stressed that "the actions of the Chinese aircraft were absolutely professional and did not pose a danger."

Earlier, the Pentagon said that on May 17, two Chinese fighters had intercepted an American reconnaissance aircraft over the international waters of the South China Sea. The leadership of the US DOD has described this incident as quite dangerous for both parties. Recently, the military activity of the USA and China in the South China Sea continues to expand. This leads to an increased risk of confrontation between the two countries in this region.

Today, Beijing has serious differences with Brunei, Malaysia, Vietnam, the Philippines and Taiwan over a disputed territory in the South China Sea. China considers the Xisha and Nansha archipelagoes for which these countries claim to be their own territory. Chinese leaders claim that the PRC acts on these islands and adjacent waters in full compliance with international legal norms, since they are part of China and it has sovereign rights in this region.

                  Close trade economic ties never saved from war

                  No one believed. and in the first world - but it happened despite all the trade relations of countries
                  Before the Second World War, the USSR and Germany had huge contracts and turnover - it did not help

                  China is clearly the main geopolitical adversary of the United States and the West in the 21 century - and it seems difficult to find compromises - the US and Western policies are too aggressive - aimed at completely suppressing opponents - with which China will never put up

                  I really hope that they will settle into some sort of "cold war" without a hot one. All of us and Russia and the CSTO and the Eurasian Union, as in fact allies of China and its "rear" will fall too - God forbid, if it gets hot.

                  Better. if all the same they restrain themselves - and time is working for China - it will reach the point of superiority - when the West simply will no longer dare to commit aggression. Then everything can be resolved and "peacefully"

              You, I see, do not know. I'll clarify. The saying "the last Chinese warning" was born when the USSR put the device on China. They sent us their notes in which it was written "The last Chinese warning No. ..." It seems like there were several hundred of these numbered notes. So the people burst out. The last Chinese warning is a symbol of helplessness.

              Now the United States is safely putting all these warnings. What result? Did they somehow limit their rhetoric to China? Or canceled flights? Or removed the ships? Or ceased to support Taiwan? China is stronger now. So instead of these statements, it would be better to continue to wash their islands and put rockets on them. It is more effective.

              And I do not believe in a direct clash between China and the United States under any circumstances. Rather, the United States will set neighbors on China and sell weapons to them.

            What is it all some kind of delicate steel. In Soviet times, there was such a magazine "Foreign Military Review", where there was all the analysis on NATO plans, and on military equipment, and on personnel, and on the policy of the alliance countries, and on many other things, and it was rather unpleasant in terms of aggression. And in China as well. And nothing, no one was indignant, everyone quietly puffed into two holes and went about their business. Just think the US analysts released the bulletin, so their job is to invent and pour mud, and also provoke scandals, which is very good at it. Well, they rolled a note of protest, but headlines like "Beijing in anger" are superfluous in my opinion.

      Not everything is so simple, but in principle it’s clear why America is pulling the Chinese dragon’s mustache - it’s all about money! The Asia-Pacific region is a huge market, in 40-70 years half of humanity will live here, which means there will be the most intensive consumer society ! USA, where "everything is not serious, except money". It must be completely confident that American business can fully compete for all these potential customers and control this region! And for the sake of this mega-corporation, the US administrations behind the back are ready to risk even unleashing a war in this region today, for the sake of a super, mega profit tomorrow!

          You are mistaken and very shy. Of course, this is not only in the Asia-Pacific region, but in Eurasia. And there will live well, much more than half of humanity, and even now ... And there is no room for amers. That's the problem.
          Even 30 years ago, studies of the prospects for the development of zones of production and residence of mankind came across. And then it was pointed to the huge reserves of raw materials and energy resources in Siberia and cheap labor in the south: India, China. Production, consumption and logistics have been resolved. And the USA remains on the outskirts of civilization, "a violinist is not needed."

          "It's not all that simple, but in principle it is clear why America is pulling the Chinese dragon's mustache - it's all about money! The Asia-Pacific region is a huge sales market."
          What are you speaking about? What can the US offer to this market? It's not about money, but about power over the world. And here geopolitics plays into the hands of the United States. China is very dependent on shipments by sea, hence the struggle for the disputed islands, they did not need 100 of them, and now they will ensure the safety of shipping from the US Navy. They force everyone to be friends against China. From India to Japan.

          Yes, everyone knows about the military alliance between China and the DPRK. Only because of it did the North Koreans not be eaten by southerners with the Americans. Because the army stuck in the sixties, where they still fly on the MiG-15 against the most high-tech army in the world, is not serious. Only Juche fanaticism will help. Although how to say: even now, in peacetime, northerners flee south for thousands, and even the most protected border in the world is not able to restrain them. So, I think, when the kneading begins, the massive transition of the North Koreans to the enemy’s side will take on a truly epic character. Because even in the American occupation, the standard of living will be an order of magnitude higher than in the DPRK now - not Japan, of course, but about how it will be in Russia.

      China loves to make its next warnings, but the enormous volume of mutual trade between China and the United States holds back both sides from the transition in the form of verbal discontent or wariness to more substantial real steps. The United States is much easier to put pressure on Russia, which they successfully do with the help of their European vassals.

    China's Millionth Warning laughing
    I rummaged here the other day, in the history of the occurrence of these warnings:
    “The Last Chinese Warning” - a diplomatic note containing the ultimate demands of China to stop violations of its airspace by US military aviation. Despite the menacing tone, “warnings” usually had no consequences ...
    History repeats itself request
    Although the audacity with which the Americans climb into all the cracks is simply beyond request
    Even among the Chinese, it can "blow off the roof": after all, there are so often territorial problems that the United States really runs the risk of stepping on someone's corn negative
    All these State Department "concerns", "calculations" of the Pentagon, walking "on the knife's edge" with their fleet and aviation - as a result, can lead to an armed conflict of all against all fool

      This is not even the main thing! In China, steel production is 1,5 times more than in the rest of the world put together, they produce cement 2 times more than the rest of the world combined ... And the lion's share of cement and steel goes to capital construction, and capital construction is infrastructure (quality life): roads, high-speed railways, bridges, tunnels, seaports, airports, power plants, factories, stadiums, swimming pools, commercial and residential real estate, communications ... And all this is real eternal and real values ​​that determine quality life ... in contrast to virtual "values" - stock quotes, inflated shares, speculation ... why China is not afraid of sanctions, the only weak link is the sea routes for the delivery of raw materials and sending exports (it is not for nothing that China is promoting a new Silk Road - the land route) ...

It is necessary to support him, as he supports us, not loudly and accurately. And the fact that the Communist Party of China does not lose control of the army and strengthens its influence in it is what they are rightly doing.

      I suppose a fantastic scenario China "forces" the United States to change the monopoly of the dollar for the gold yuan. Simply by economic methods.
      Without military confrontation (like cornering the States).
      How then will "friendly" China talk with our "US deposits (debt securities)" which will be in its hands.
      So friends for a century in politics have not been and never will be.
      This is like the law of gravity.

    Washington is a haven for political alcoholism. His politics, as well as the use of alcohol, are harmful to the American political regime itself (the method of government in the country and attempts to impose political will on others). The general thing here is that just as an alcoholic doesn’t care with whom to drink, just to drink, so Obama, with whom to meet and what to discuss, what crazy ideas and programs to put forward - anyway.

    An incomprehensible statement at all. Well, then declare your data secret and "close" it, no one will be able to find out these numbers, and accordingly, there will be nothing to publish.

    Until the United States changes its thinking algorithm, the American political elite may run into big military troubles. The military potential of the Russian-Chinese tandem already exceeds the American one, but the leaders of the aforementioned countries have repeatedly stated that it is inadmissible to resolve controversial issues by military means. But the American economy cannot exist without total domination over the world. And the time of such an economy is irrevocably gone. It is difficult for me to imagine that American imperialism, flawed in its essence, will be able to switch to the real "rails" of the classical market economy, which provides, first of all, natural competition with social obligations. Americans have long been preparing a second home for the Anglo-Saxons, namely Australia, where they hope to sit out the third world war. Maybe there is some sense in this, which superficially explains some of the decisions of the White House. But, the world is small, not dear sirs!

    ".. The leaders of the PRC, as the American military experts emphasize, are actively looking for ways to strengthen their capabilities in the military, diplomatic and economic spheres in order to establish their regional advantage, as well as strengthen and expand its international influence..

Any fortification of another country causes the minke whales a terrible allergy and such horror stories are born in the form of multi-page tracts, in order to squeeze out more money from the budget.

      Good evening, Dulat! I believe that the United States and NATO themselves forced the PRC to such matters. Remember how they blocked the Strait of Malacca (a quarter of all sea oil transportation; along with the Suez and Panama Canals, they are the most important sea artery) with their teachings. And China transported more than half of all exports through it. Here it is also necessary to recall the pirates operating near the Suez Canal.
      The Chinese were initially silent, and then began to retaliate. The Silk Road and its economic belt, bulk islands with the armed forces of the PRC, interest in the Northern Sea Route and the BAM, grew. infrastructure in the Far East (ports), gas pipelines and oil pipelines. In the 90s, for example, the PRC was indifferent to our "fuss" at Art. Dostyk (reloading to other gauge-changing railway wheelsets on wagons; credit and technical assistance provided by Japan). And now the idea of ​​the Silk Road is being ascribed to themselves and are being promoted in every possible way.
      The Yankees have always sought to control the sea lanes (the largest navy in the world). China in Eurasia decided to divert transportation by land and militarily began to seriously build up its Navy and create strongholds in the form of bulk islands along its borders. I do not want to justify the actions of China, but the United States itself is forcing. Moreover, the Chinese have long been under external control, so they are painful about any attempt to impose something on them. hi

    With such neighbors it is always necessary to keep "ears on top of the head", partnership (note - not allied!) Relations can always be interrupted due to national interests, and then? The GDP is doing the right thing - strengthening the islands, and we must not forget about the border with China, Siberia, although large, there are many times less people living there. Without Siberia, even with nuclear weapons, Russia is nothing more than a regional power.

    The United States has an exaggerated opinion of its own significance, in fact, the states are more vulnerable than Russia and China. The states squandered their minerals, destroyed almost the entire animal world of the continent, and cut down forests. The American economic miracle, based on an abundance of cheap natural resources, ended with resources.
