Military Review

In China, hit on takeoff

80



Sino-American contradictions, accumulated over decades, entered a new stage. By provoking conflicts along the perimeter of the PRC borders, Washington seeks to halt the growing economic and political power of the Middle Kingdom. The Chinese authorities are responding to this with new large-scale projects that threaten to put an end to American adventures.

Provocation in the Hague

The decision of the International Court of Arbitration in The Hague can be called a turning point in relations between the United States and China. If before the American authorities acted with cautious diplomatic methods, now they have moved to open pressure, which does not preclude provoking a military conflict. This is a lawsuit by the Philippines, demanding that Beijing’s claims on the Spratly Islands (or Nansha in Chinese) be declared illegal in the South China Sea. It was filed more than three years ago, but then very few people paid attention to it: such arbitrations can begin consideration of the case only with the consent of all interested parties. China refused to participate in the arbitration court, and therefore the Philippine lawsuit was threatened with a fate to replenish the stocks of waste paper.

However, last fall, the Hague court unexpectedly announced the extension of its jurisdiction to territorial disputes in the South China Sea. And July 12 arbitration issued a verdict: China has no rights to the archipelago. The reasons are obvious, as is the country from which this decision was made. The United States intervened. And although geographically Washington has nothing to do with the South China Sea (the closest American possession — the island of Guam — is located at a distance of almost 3 thousand kilometers), the United States declared the region to be one of the most important components of ensuring its national security.

Such an increased interest in the South China Sea is quite understandable. Through its waters, 60 per cent of China’s foreign trade is carried out, including 80 per cent of oil imports. In addition, huge reserves of hydrocarbons are concentrated under the sea shelf. The loss of control over the region is fraught with serious problems for China.

Not daring to intervene directly, the United States is fueling territorial disputes, thereby pitting Beijing with its neighbors and setting China as an aggressive power. The task is facilitated by unresolved disagreements regarding the nationality of two archipelagoes - the Spratlys (Nansha) and Paraselsky (Xisha) islands. Historically, they were part of China, whose sovereignty was confirmed by the Cairo (1943 year) and Potsdam (1945 year) conferences. However, taking advantage of the civil war in China, and then the focus of the new communist authorities on solving domestic problems, neighboring countries began to develop the territory: the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, etc.

In 2002, the PRC and the ASEAN countries signed a Declaration on the behavior of the parties in the South China Sea, which launched the process of peaceful settlement of contradictions. One of the points of the document clearly indicates that all disputes should be resolved exclusively between the parties involved. This provision was grossly violated by the intervention of the United States.

In China, however, they are not going to follow partisan verdicts. Even before the decision of the Chinese Foreign Ministry stressed that the country will continue to "resolutely defend its territorial sovereignty and legal rights, resolutely defend peace and stability in the South China Sea." These words were confirmed by large-scale military exercises conducted by the Chinese Navy in the sea from 5 to 11 in July.

And on July 7, a telephone conversation took place between Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and US Secretary of State John Kerry. The head of Chinese diplomacy warned the American side against interfering in territorial disputes and stressed that such actions would be viewed by Beijing as a violation of the sovereignty of the PRC.

Antique Chinese Alliance

There are good reasons for such a tough rebuke. In its anti-Chinese policy, the United States is not limited to the use of controlled international organizations such as the Hague Court. In June, the 15 Intergovernmental Forum on Security in the Asia-Pacific Region (APR), better known as the Shangri-La Dialogue, was held in Singapore. US Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter, who was present on him, bluntly called the main threats to stability. Among them were the “nuclear and missile provocations of North Korea” and the spread of extremism. But in the first place the head of the Pentagon put the "tense situation in the South China Sea." Who exactly is the source of this situation, in Washington do not get tired to repeat. US officials and media outlets loudly accuse China of allegedly illegal control of the islands and militarization of the region. The latter means the placement of defensive objects, including air defense.

It is amazing that such statements are made by a country that is used to force to achieve its goals and has declared almost the whole world as a zone of its own interests. The South China Sea region is no exception. In recent months, the Pentagon has literally overrun it with the military. Not content with permanent military bases in Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Bahrain and the Philippines, as well as its Seventh fleet, USA build up military fist. In April, Washington obtained agreement from the Philippine authorities to build five more bases. In June, it became known about the relocation of part of the ships of the Third Fleet to the region. In the waters south of the Philippines today are concentrated two strike groups of the US Navy, led by atomic carriers Ronald Reagan and John Stennis. In addition, the so-called electronic warplanes were deployed to Philippine bases, destined to destroy Chinese radars if necessary.

Washington is clearly provoking China to use force. Ignoring Beijing’s demand for permission to pass ships and fly through the exclusive economic zone of the PRC, the United States regularly invades Chinese waters and airspace. In early June, two Chinese fighters intercepted an American reconnaissance aircraft RC-135, which caused a real hysteria in Washington and a new round of militant statements.

Playing muscles, the United States is also trying to incite its satellites against the enemy. Washington's goal is to create an anti-Chinese alliance, or "East Asian NATO," as it is called more and more often. This was openly stated by the US Secretary of Defense at the already mentioned meeting in Singapore. Carter threatened to isolate Beijing and called on APR countries to unite military structures to "create a security network."

A number of steps in this direction have already been made. At the end of May, during Obama's visit to Vietnam, the parties agreed on the complete lifting of the American arms embargo from Hanoi. Almost simultaneously, it became aware of the conclusion of the US-Taiwan arms contract for 1,8 billion dollars. The US Congress, in turn, confirmed the action of the so-called Reagan guarantees, in accordance with which Washington will continue to sell arms to Taiwan, and will continue to support the island’s sovereignty. For Beijing, this is an extremely painful issue, especially in the light of the coming to power of the Democratic Progressive Party, which is upholding the complete independence of Taiwan. Speaking at 1 July at a solemn meeting on the occasion of the 95 anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party, President Xi Jinping declared that actions aimed at sovereignization of the island were unacceptable.

Another country that is being drawn into “East Asian NATO” is India. During the recent visit of this country's Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the United States, the final text of the agreement on partnership in the military sphere was agreed. The agreement allows the US Navy to use the Indian bases during joint exercises, humanitarian operations and the fight against piracy. In addition, as Obama said, Washington is ready to transfer Delhi 99 percent of its military technology. To this end, the question of granting India the status of a “special US global partner” is being discussed.

On the other, northeastern direction, China is threatened by an American group in South Korea. 8 July became aware of the deployment here of the US missile defense system THAAD. Formally, it is created to protect against the "North Korean threat", but its anti-Chinese focus is obvious.

Japan is moving along the path of militarization, which is also being set on China, using the territorial dispute around the Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea. Adopted last year, the law allowed the Self-Defense Forces to conduct combat operations abroad. Now the Japanese army is actively rearming. To purchase one hundred multipurpose fighters in Tokyo are ready to spend a record amount - 40 billions of dollars.

To strengthen the anti-Chinese alliance, the parties are stepping up military-technical cooperation. The 11 — 17 of June passed the Malabar American-Indian-Japanese maneuvers. Japan agreed on the supply of boats to the Philippines and the deployment of anti-submarine warplanes in this country. Vietnam, in turn, agreed to provide the Japanese Navy with access to the Cam Ranh base.

Beijing and the new global model

It is abundantly clear that the situation around the South China Sea is only a pretext for pressure on Beijing. The main irritant is the strengthening of the economic and military power of the PRC. According to experts, in the next decade the country will become the leading economy of the world. An important stage on this road will be the 13-th five-year plan for national economic and social development approved in March.

The main goals of the new five-year plan are to raise the standard of living of the population (in particular, 70 million people are planned to be brought out of poverty), reduce dependence on foreign investment and develop high-tech industries. To this end, investment in research is planned to increase to 2,5 percent of GDP, and the coefficient of contribution of scientific and technological progress in economic growth - to 60 percent.

Another task for the near future is the modernization of the armed forces. Work in this direction is already underway. Thus, an intercontinental ballistic missile "Dongfeng-41" was successfully tested, carrying several warheads and capable of covering a distance of 12 thousands of kilometers. At the same time, missile forces were singled out into a separate branch of troops (before that, they were called the “Second Artillery Corps”), which confirms the special attention of the Chinese authorities to their development.

Having set itself truly ambitious goals, the Chinese leadership is not going to abandon socialist principles. This confirmed the large-scale celebration of the 95 anniversary of the Communist Party. Speaking at a grand meeting in Beijing, Xi Jinping emphasized that the CCP remains loyal to Marxism. “Having departed from Marxism, which is the leading theory for both the party and the country, we will lose our spirit and direction,” he said. At the same time, the Chairman of the People's Republic of China called for the adaptation of communist ideology to modern realities, for innovation.

The combination of socialism with the latest achievements of social thought was the reason for the unprecedented success of China. The country has an increasing influence on global processes, challenging the world order led by the United States. The “One Belt, One Road” strategy, which is supposed to create a single economic space on a vast territory, is being implemented at full speed. At the end of June, the first annual meeting of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank was held in Beijing. It became known that ABII started financing projects in Pakistan, Tajikistan, Indonesia and Bangladesh. All of them are part of the “One Belt and One Way” strategy.

At the same time, the space to China may become not only an economic, but also a political, ideological alternative to the West. As Xi Jinping has repeatedly stated, the system of global governance must become fairer. In this regard, the Chinese authorities are calling for the construction of a new model of international relations based on the principle of universal benefit.

Preventing the creation of this pole is an obsession with the United States and the entire global capitalist elite. Therefore, provocations like those that occur around the South China Sea today, we will see a lot more. In China, ready for this. As Xi Jinping emphasizes, the country will never sacrifice its fundamental interests, its security and sovereignty. The fate of the Soviet Union in China is well remembered.

      It is time for China to collect stones, first strategically important islands in the South China Sea, and after the return of the lost lands in the form of the Amur Region, Primorsky Territory ... If China manages to take these islands, then their arrival to us is only a matter of time.

        Let's not, dear, about the lost (Chinese) lands. Before the Russians arrived in the present Far East, the Chinese did not smell there, they could only draw a map in a dream ... Having got acquainted with us, they began to wish our land: the Russians are too flexible. But why do the Chinese organize incidents with their neighbors - from Russia to Vietnam? Do they have megalomania? So we believed that they had 1,3 billion people! Not a billion will be typed: all this propaganda is a means of intimidation! The Xinjiang Uygur region and Tibet are not going to settle, but they will burrow on Russian lands. Not good! Including for China is not good! It would be better to create allied relations with Vietnam, Myanmar, Russia, Central Asia - moreover, without a stone in your bosom! But alas, only the Russians are capable of this.

        If comrade Xi declares that the PRC needs a military-political alliance with Russia, which is probably not in vain. The first persons in China have never made such statements. Throughout their thousand-year history, they have always stood apart. Many years ago, they considered other peoples and states to be barbarians, the Chinese were not very interested in what was happening outside the Middle Kingdom. The Western media did not cover this statement at all; we did it in passing. But it is epoch-making for Asia, because the alliance of the largest and most numerous countries in the world puts everyone else (not only in Asia) in a different league. One has the best defense industry and nuclear arsenal, the other is the richest and most numerous. It is pointless to incite any trifle to such an alliance - it will be more expensive for oneself (loss of a vassal).
        I wonder how the Kremlin will react - they are probably already calculating. But no matter how you look, but there is a sense, calmness at least in Asia can be achieved, because the alliance will be open to others (potential members can already be named: CSTO, Iran, India, Mongolia). And after the turmoil on the BV, there will be much more people willing. It is also interesting that the PRC would hardly offer such a proposal to anyone, since it is the Russian Federation that can become just such a CENTER (Beijing will be suspected of expansion). Many will unite around Moscow, but around Beijing I am afraid not; therefore, Moscow must seize the initiative. But let's see what Comrade Xi under the "military-political alliance" and how the Kremlin will react. hi

    The Chinese, when it comes to national interests, do not crumble into diplomatic verbiage. And perhaps this is correct. And the United States has completely gone crazy in its ambitious foreign policy. It is possible that it will not end well. Only because of one "exceptional" the whole world will suffer.

        And so that the world leader does not change, they will do everything to block the transport artery of the South China Sea (60% of China’s foreign trade and 80% of oil imports go through its waters. Huge hydrocarbon reserves are discovered here. Loss of control over the region is fraught with serious problems for China .)
        The USA is the Roman Empire of the period of decay and decay. Only the role of the war elephants of Hannibal now performs nuclear weapons.
        That States climbed deep into the Asia-Pacific region for a long time - no doubt. Until they put an end to the second world economy (or until they are torn!), By China, their main competitor, they will not calm down.

          But the USSR could not promote China into an industrial superpower - it did not have such resources. (And it would not have been necessary for the USSR to do this: Chinese "communism" is a joke)

    The dualism of the world is also manifested in the confrontation between the United States and China. Unity and struggle of opposites. Mattress toppers cannot accept the growing DEPENDENCE on China. And with its growing influence in various regions. And this is a contradiction. So they began to build alliances, rustling on the borders, Vietnam, the Philippines, Japan "pull up", Taiwan excite. One gets the impression that the mattress mats are stirring this devilish brew not from a well-thought-out plan, but simply from a yearning to do something.

    The article is so average. China escaped following the United States in politics at the beginning of the 2008 crisis. During the crisis, China was able to buy those technologies that it could never have received. The United States once saved its own. Here they forgot about China's appeal to all compatriots. He has the knowledge, knows how to apply it, He knows how to achieve this, help the country. The country needs YOU. The HUMAN RESOURCES campaign was ALL the main thing at that time. And now the engineer is a respected person. The campaign launched in China Learning is the main thing for young people. All professions are important. China has become the construction site of the latest production facilities. The attention of state authorities has been drawn to science. The rise of China began to stop is no longer possible.

    We need to remember only two things:
    1. In a capitalist system of relations, insoluble contradictions can only be resolved by a great war;
    2. Changing the world economy leader in 75% of cases led to a protracted series of wars or to a world war.
    Today we are witnessing two of these factors at once.
    1. Capital is now concentrated in the hands of an extremely limited group of people, it is practically not growing and there is nowhere to invest it.
    2. China in 2015 in terms of economy when accounting for PPP, it overtook the United States and became the first economy in the world. With an increase of even 6% per year, the gap will increase every year. China is unprofitable in the face of growth, but for the Americans ...
    And I would also like to say thanks to our scientists for a reliable nuclear missile shield.

    Putin should think about the need to change the economic course in order to bring the economy to stable growth in the region of at least 8-9% per year. State ideology should be a prerequisite for positive transformations. China has it, the USSR had it. The Soviet Union grew by at least 7% per year in the era of "stagnation", while in our country there is 0-3%.

        If there are no brains, then yes, it remains to wait for something. When the cancer whistles on the mountain. And if there are brains, the prospects are awesome. Petrodollars should not be invested in a box, but in industrialization, buying ready-made technologies, improving them to enter the market of technological products. Nothing new - we are watching the Soviet five-year plans, only without the "leading role of the CPSU" and other nonsense. But for this it is necessary to abandon the idea of ​​the "invisible hand of the market" and take control into their own hands. To do not only monitor policy, but also industrial one. Forget about the free movement of capital across the border - profits from oil and gas wealth should not be withdrawn by oligarchs to offshores, but invested within the country in the development of production. There should be a plan for the development of production in the country as a whole, stage-by-stage, in five-year terms, like the PRC. But in our country it is believed that we cannot command private factories - this is interference in private property, ay-ay! Kudrin, Chubais. With these only wait for the rise in oil prices.

And besides, even from official sources, take an interest in the estimated level of corruption in the country. And as a result, in the largest country with the richest mineral deposits there are no resources for growth ????? Take the economic atlas for the 6th grade, so it will be clearer what our resources for growth are.

And they themselves stupidly continue to sit across the ocean, unless sending soldiers and ships to distant overseas bases.
    And if we imagine that the disagreements will enter a "hot phase" and missiles will fly? How long can those bases live with a separation from the metropolis, without the possibility of timely delivery of the necessary? Something seems to be that China will make every effort to make the communication between the bases and Sysh come to naught. But the countries where these notorious bases are located will get in the face. In an adult way. It is impossible to defeat China without the use of nuclear weapons, and in the traditional version of the war the Chinese will crush any country.

      I have already said this several times: the Americans themselves will not allegedly attack, which means China WILL NOT BE official occasion answer for them and nuclear weapons including And the Americans can use the bombing of Brunei (a missile attack on it) as the teachings of their Aegis - shooting down Chinese ballistic missiles.
      And yes, China has only about a year: the Americans deploy a missile defense system in Korea (protecting themselves and Japan), create a coalition of Brunei underwater cavalry and Vietnamese fishermen, arrange some kind of provocation with the fishermen - the Chinese brutally destroy them, for which in response get oars и hooves snout, i.e. they drown the entire fleet and shoot down planes (and the fact that the oars are very similar to Harpoons is just an accident), because the distance from the coast is very high - they will not be pulled with protection in almost complete surroundings. But on land to China, no one will climb - why bother? The islands were seized (including those disputed with Japan), the fleet - destroyed, their debt (trillion!) - canceled, trade relations - we’re not breaking off (how are they worse than Turkey ?!), but we clearly indicate to China where to send the wounded the pride of the land armies ... to the North.

    What year did the article write? China now has problems in the economy of the car and a small truck. 60% of China's imports are produced in factories and plants owned by foreign companies. Since 2010, the trend is that those firms that previously transferred production to China, are now leaving the country. Apple, Exxon, General electric, General motors have already brought part of their production facilities from there to Vietnam, India, Mexico, Kenya, or even back to the United States. Here are the main reasons for leaving:

    Over the past ten years, the average wage of the Chinese worker has grown by almost 5 times: from 8 750 yuan to 2000 to 41 650 to 2012. If 10 years ago, the share of wages in the total costs of companies was 2%, today it has grown to 12%. Interestingly, wages have doubled in the “export” province of Guangdong over the past three years, but more than half of the enterprises cannot find a sufficient number of workers. The introduction of the “one child policy” in the 1980s also led to negative consequences. Now young people who were born at the end of 80-beginning of 90-are entering the labor market, that is, fewer people enter the working life than it was ten or fifteen years ago, therefore the manufacturing sector is experiencing a shortage of workers. Protecting Chinese labor rights also led to increased costs. For example, in 2008, a law was passed that extended the term of an employment contract from 1 to 3 years. It is worth noting that the service sector in China has grown significantly, so young people tend to work as waiters, not as workers in factories.


    And the tightening of environmental and labor legislation, increased costs and monopolies of state-owned companies in some areas of industry. So it's too early to talk about the Great Chinese economy.

    If my memory serves me, the islands are just an excuse. All the salt of this piece of cake is in the stuffing of these islands, namely in the oil and gas deposits in the coastal regions around the islands. China is projecting its growing military-political power not only on this area, but also on many other disputed territories. This is the normal policy of a mature state. Considering the centuries-old (!) Historical background of the Chinese statehood, it is possible to predict with a high degree of probability that at this stage of its development this piece is too tough for the Chinese. But in the short term (and the Chinese are thinking in the short term for 30-40 years), China has every chance of getting these islands just by having such trump cards in its sleeves as:
    1st world economy;
    1st largest army in the world;
    being in the top five countries of the world with modern weapons (hypersonic weapons, the presence of stealth aircraft and aircraft carriers, a deeply modernized army built not on the Soviet-Chinese heritage, but on modern principles of command and construction (the Chinese have muddied military reform if that);
    significant reserves of mineral resources and human resources;
    coherent tough internal policy excluding "color".

      The islands - this is a response to the closure of the Strait of Malacca and the south of the South China Sea of ​​the United States and vassals during military exercises - showed who is the boss in the house. In short, 80% of all China’s exports go through this transport corridor. It’s like in gas wars between the Russian Federation and Ukraine. Before that, there were no problems - Vietnam and Russia worked quietly on the shelf and sold oil to China. hi

    He could only snarl with ballistic missiles, of which he has few or no (long range). So the Americans will choose the time until China has established their production - all the arguments add up for the next year!

Some of the members of the forum can explain: "Who will eventually take this base in rent or maybe tenants will be a little laughing, like in a big shopping center? "

    As far as I understand, officially Vietnam does not intend to lease the Kamran naval base. It is still about the possibility of the entry of warships of foreign states into a certain workshop for repair, replenishment of fresh water and food, etc. Theoretically, ships of any country can enter, but so far only the Navy of the Russian Federation and Japan have written about this possibility in the media. It is possible that the Russian Navy enjoys some other privileges, but this was not disclosed.
    The author of the article was mistaken regarding the subject of discussion of the Hague court. They are China’s claims for 85% of the South China Sea (or the legality of the so-called nine-dot line), and not the Spratly Archipelago.

      The PRC is potentially the largest market. China, while maintaining party-state (totalitarian) control over the country, uses the advantages of a megamonopoly in the competition with the North American cluster of transnational corporations (TNCs), which, with the help of the administration in Washington, were able to take a monopoly position in the "fattest" segments of the world market. This is Sino-American socialism. Nobody believes that it is possible to survive using only market competition mechanisms.
