Academic counters Cheney's 'threat' remarks
(China Daily/Agencies)
Updated: 2007-02-24 08:49


China is committed to its goal of peaceful development, a Beijing academic said in response to Friday's remarks on the country's "military threat" by US

Despite Cheney's concern, China's foreign affairs goal is obvious: seeking a peaceful rise, according to Shi Yinhong, a professor at the School of International Studies at Beijing's Renmin University of China.

"The urgent matter for Sino-US relations is the trade problem rather than the military threat," said Shi, in an interview with China Daily on Friday.

At an Australian-American Leadership Dialogue in Sydney, Cheney praised China for its "especially important" role in striking an agreement at the recent Six-Party Talks in Beijing. Under the agreement, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) is to seal its nuclear reactor and allow international inspections in exchange for fuel oil.

But Cheney, a leading architect in the Bush administration of the decision to invade Iraq, said China's "military build-up" and its missile test last month "are not consistent with China's stated goal of a peaceful rise".

As he stressed the importance of US forces remaining in Iraq, anti-war demonstrators clashed with police outside the hotel where Cheney was speaking.

Shi said Cheney's remarks on China's military threat may receive support from a few countries, but the global influence would not be substantial.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry previously said the missile test conducted on January 11 was done so for scientific purposes.

"On the space question, we have upheld the peaceful use of outer space and supported the strengthening of international exchanges and cooperation on the peaceful use of outer space," said Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu, earlier. "We are firmly against weaponization and an arms race in outer space.

"We have never participated in an arms race of whatever form in outer space, nor will we do so in the future," she said at a news briefing before Spring Festival.

In recent years, China and Russia have joined many other countries in actively promoting the Disarmament Conference in Geneva to adopt an international legal document on the prevention of weaponization and an arms race in outer space through negotiation.

Cheney arrived in Australia after talks in Tokyo with Japanese prime minister.

Yeah of course, when China provide competitive price merchandise, the west said it hurts their industry. The consumers silent.

When the western manufacturers move their production line to China, they said the workers hurt. The industry silent.

When the low-end manufacturers move their 'dirty' industry to China, the environmentalist complain China for polluting the globe. The capitalists silent.


So what we see here? Coordinated China bashing... every step we do simply won't meet western appetite.

  I can understand the comment of Dicky and his feelings of sour grapes. I say to our brothers & Sisters in China that we need to forgive Dicky because we need to consider ALL the USA's failures and direct SLAP IN THE FACE for the Americans since the first days of "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED". Dicky's remarks is a futile attempt to disparage the clean and immense goodwill that all nations in the world community bear towards a China that the world sees as the MORAL COMPASS for the 21st century. America in this context is just Kaput !

I mean let us look and list the failures that the USA has chalked up on the negative side of the American ledger. There is the dismal and utter disaster of the USA led campaign of affression against Saddam's Iraq. President Bush & Dicky, Tony Blair, Dony Rumsfeld etc ...etc all blew on their own trumpets and for them in their heroin induced haze of hallucination, Dicky at the point when the insurgency stepped up their intensity in the attacks on the USA led forces, DICKY says that the intense and continous attacks were "THE LAST THROES OF A DESPARATE AND DYING INSURGENCY"; this man has only good things to say to you face even as he dies in his own bed. The ATTACKS escalated into a franzy and daily 200 to 300 Iraqis loose their lives and of course in the rare cases of US GIs daring to patrol the streets, they too die in pretty quick time. IN THESE CIRCUMSTANCES DICKY SAYS THE INSURGENCY IS IN ITS LAST THROES". It is more like the last throw of the American dice with this crazy "SURGE STARTEGY".

Having said that we now go to the nuclear problem between DPRK vs. the USA and of course the 6 party talks. Here again we see that in spite of the USA being (so she says)the stronger than all 20 of the world's next most powerful nations stiched together, the DPRK will not even give the Americans the time of day; so what is all that mighty USA military amount other than to be a mere "CASTRATED EUNOCH" a half man and a half woman; that is how I would categorize the status of the USA today. Here we see the CHINA THAT IS THE GLOBAL POWER THAT ENJOYS IMMENSE SOFT POWER". China has demonstrated in this masterful example of soft power that it is more important that others see China as the GOOD GUY and the USA as the bad guys. DPRK without the coaxing by China will not have responded to Us overtures.

Go to Africa and we see the warm and mutually beneficial cooperation that will usher in a new century of win win partnership between China and Africa. This is now the sticking point for the Americans and they see what China has done as the first stone for the construction of a new model for cooperation for Africa and China & Asia.

I can go on but too long an account and readers will not read it. I will continue later.

  Dick Cheney is right. Why does China need to blow up a satellite in space? China is on a gradual military buildup, denying its superpower prowlness, until the day comes and they bite the head off the lion tamer. They are clever liars. Peaceful rise does not mean military flexing! Unless of course they intend to use it. China inhibition will come out again, as it did in Ti -an-min
  
Ceylon Yu 2007-02-24 13:53
  "Dogs may bark but the caravan moves", China will be the greatest inventors in this millennium. Cheney and their cahoots will try their best to dis-stabilize China.The present leadership are pragmatic,and efficient.Not avarice politicians like what you find in USA.
  
bully ? 2007-02-24 13:47
  dick, rice, gate... cannot bully China any more though they are willing to !

the powerful China can defend its own country, is not or will not be afraid of any aggressor who will invade China.
because of this american aggressor is upseting this time.
  
US Nuclear Bomb 2007-02-24 13:39
  If nothing improves in the near future on the US "foreign policy" front, then President Bush, who currently holds the authority to pre-emptively strike non-nuclear states by using US nuclear weapons, is likely to bomb other countries merely by asserting false accusations against of harboring WMDs, in the exact way that he did in Iraq.
  
Rising China 2007-02-24 13:29
  dick cheney has come to Asia for what ?

Since last month( Dec., 11) the american aggressor has never stopped its severely attacking China's test of destroying its satellite with missile, beginning from its low-ranking to high-ranking officials of the united states, such as gate, rice, dick... why they so hate China's test ? it is obvious that the american aggressor does not like to see the other countries' military buildup getting better. if another country becomes more stronger the american aggressor is not easy to bully and invade the country, so every country has its full right to upgrade its military buildup for defending its own country.
under such circumstances China must ignore what dick said, and just go ahead for China's military buildup, only in this way can China build tis country more peacefully.

WE MUST SAY CHINA IS A PEACEFUL COUNTRY, AND HAS NEVER INVADED AN INCH OF LAND OF THE OTHER COUNTRY !

"YET HOW MANY MORE WERE NOT REPORTED NOR CAPTURED"

TRYING again to falsify make-beliefs of a "chimney-of-war-pollutions" whose engineering architecture has already been engulfing the entire IRAQ region into a chaotic arena suitable only for slaughter houses? The public might have to scrutinize and question his credential of being a top political wig for America since there was a "wide whisper" that someone shot his friend thinking it was wild animal coming for him. Is a mentally disturbed illusion fit enough to judge and make decisions for America? Alas, unfortunately that many are dying & injuring for his "falsified-make-beliefs" out of nothingness: sick illusions kill and mutilate unfairly!! His mission is being paid for to harmonise but chewing on sour grapes and spitting will never work for him and neither for USA.

A HUMBLE PULLOUT IS A GREAT PRIDE THAT ONLY FEW COULD DO IT, IS USA THE PROUD ONE?
For those who died and were mutilated unnecessarily, blame those mad heads of states for wanting a war and a top spy wig visiting Australia in trying to cool Australian soldiers-of-john in war with it so unnecessarily wasteful and sinful altogether. That Iraqi war is so different because it is a war that was brought about by false and malicious intelligence reports; and perhaps it was a war of personal spites between 2 mad heads of states then. One had had it for good or bad!! That "Iraqi-war" was never a well defined enemy of the world or USA alone unlike WW1 and WW2 in that those enemies were clearly defined and definitive beyond any doubt. The world forces fought together as "one" against "two" then as common enemies of the world!!

THE EFFECTS, PRICE & COST OF WAR:
The cultures and religions of all those forces in the Iraqi war are entirely different and opposite to each other. Hence, how could USA and its coalition forces ever win in Iraq? Is there a timetable to win in Iraq? NO, and never shall be because of the said differences and USA could be lonely in its war as time progresses since none other sees it as a common war.

The displaced Iraqi could be by the millions shall be flooding the front gates of USA, UK, Australia and all nations of the coalition forces. It may be seen and perceived as an obligation of the warring forces to open their gates since the war was sparked by falsified and fabricated intelligence reports and personal revenge. The local Iraqi warring factions are copying just what USA, UK and coalition forces have doing to them: killing as revenge-killings go unabated. This is the most dangerous and very long lasting war path, might never end. As more get killed and/or mutilated, personal hatreds and lusts for revenges deepen so naturally. So Sorry!

TOP WIGS have to rethink with cooled heads!!

  Chinese leadership should not only respond each time they are attacked by U.S foreign policy. They should join with Russia and also start hard direct talk on U.S policies that have endangered the world.
  
The Real Threat 2007-02-24 11:41
  To the Chinese Leadership,

"I think it is time the Chinese leadership rebut and stand firm, like what Putin did in Munich, Germany a few days ago, firing back at the US ...........Now who is the real threat to the world ? Who is the hegemon ? "

The urgent task at hand for the Chinese leadership is to race against time to develop China in an all round, comprehensive, holistic and advanced manner in all fields, including political, economic and finance, social, military, foreign affairs, science & technology for all of China encompassing development in the less developed parts of China.

China should try to catch up with the US within the next 25 years, and bring its GDP near the the now US$13 trillion from its current US$2.2 trillion.

Only then will the US and the World rever China, and China regains its dignity !

  Dear Mr Cheaky,

You are just one step from being the Almighty. Under your scheme of things, the US has taken on the role of a

prosecutor
withness (false withness of course)
judge
jury (of course you don't really need them)
executioner
financier and beneficiary
(you make so much money from all these weapons companies)

Your defence budget is more than 50% of the world's share! You have a network of governments that are willing to do abuction and imprisonment around the world , why should you be concern about China?

Have you also throught about sending your extended family to the front line? Have you thought about the dead bodies be it Americans or Iraqis that you are ressponsible for?

You should spend sometime to think about your soul, if you don't have one go find it. Get the CIA to help you track it down abuduct it and imprison it.

Just stop thinking about money!

  Dearest Nasty Mr. Cheney:

Get us Americans out of everyone else's business, you self-serving power-brokered liar! We did not elect any of you cheap nuts to be the world's policeman. Indeed, the power-brokered puppets of Capitalistic Democracy hegemoniss only offer up the likes of such nasty fools as Bush/Cheney or Hillary/Obamma!

You all talk cheap nonsense and do what your greedy masters want you to do.

Why are you so afraid of China? Is it that you can see China has a better approach?

So let's hear about the truth of our own military and those who put them in harm's way.

Why must you constantly lie and then croak your bellicose toadstool nonsense about China? You are a whuss! You have no guts to let a better approach to world affairs displace your insane approach -- that makes you not just a coward but a bonehead as well.

Get us out of China's nosehairs and tell the Taiwanese to embrace their rightful homeland instead of your absolute mockery of truth and justice!

  Cheney is a real threat to world peace.

He and his neo-con gang have brought destructions, deaths and sufferings to many innocent people including women and children in Afghanistan and Iraq.
  
john 2007-02-24 10:46
  Cheney have to look at his own military, the budget is out of proportion. US started the race and they thought that noone will ever come close.
  
rummy 2007-02-24 10:22
  Cheney = Ha Ha He He Ho Ho! He should take a look into his won mirror before criticizing others.I am tired of seeing nothing in the newspapers except the misery in Iraq and no one can find those weapons of mass destruction.
  
The Real Threat 2007-02-24 10:01
  To the Chinese leadership,

I think it is time the Chinese leadership rebut and stand firm, like what Putin did in Munich, Germany a few days ago, firing back at the US and the Neocon hawks and morons that the real indisputable threat to the world is non other than the US themself.

The fact that Iran and Northe Korea may build nuclear weapons is solely because of the US threat. If China had not been a nuclear power, it would have faced the same fate as Iran and North Korea now, or worst perhaps, sufferred the same fate as Iraq now.

The US has more than half the world's military budget,it invaded Iraq despite opposition from the international community, and committed unspeakable brutalities in Iraq and Afghanistan, attacked Sudan with impunity, expanded to included the ex-soviet states reneging its pledge to Russia, continues to develop more sophisicated and deadly and destructive weapons and develops tactical nuclear weapons with the stated threat of using them, at least on Iran, and perhaps on North Korea and other countries like Russia and China as well. And its weapons can reach all corners of the world with speed and pinpoint precision where there is no defence against them.

The US unilaterally scrapped the ABM treaty, and develops its anti missile system and now plans to instal ABM systems in the former Soviet states/ East Europe threatening Russia, in addition the the istallation in Alaska and the Pacific seaboard.

Now who is the real threat to the world ? Who is the hegemon ?
  
cheap americans 2007-02-24 09:44
  the cheap mouth and stinky ass belong to cheney,so he has the rights of venting and farting.

never mind the US says and does.what we should do is to develop both economically and militarily
dare i say the US never dare to invade china

  David,

you said "China invaded Vietnam and India", this is your "history" fabricated by you only. you have turned black into white.

can you tell us is there any land of these two countries has been occupied ?

you must know that america was american indian country but has been dominated by the whites from Europe for just two centuries, you're just a blind history.

cey 2007-02-24 20:49
  Cheney is a key advisor of the USA government and historical has hostel feeling to China. He has done the worst thing is that he consists on the aggression of Iraq under the excuse of destructive weapon, but no found at all. Everyone knows that he wants Iraq's oil if Iraq had no oil the USA wouldn't aggregate it.
Cheney also listed 8 countries as "evil states" including China and USSR. Only after the aggression of Iraq has he (USA government) cut the list by 3-5 countries. As a matter of fact, the number of evil countries is still 8 in his mind.
USA is puring money in military taking No. 1 position in the whole world. 77 times more than China by per ca-pita.

China has never invaded another country? did you get that from a chinese textbook that whitewashes its history? Han agressors are the worst kind. They can't even admit history. Ask vietnam and india about Han agression. Why are there no minority police officers in China? Why is the west a part of china? maybe because the Han invaded and said it is theirs now. han border disputes are a cover up of Han agressors actions. When will the Han admit to real history? Han agressors only believe stories of flying kong fu dragon with no facts in sight.

Dirty_Hairy 2007-02-24 17:25
  China's military is currently over-manned and poorly equipped. It is now attempting to modernize its armed forces with a budget of between $35-70 billion USD (depending on whom you believe).

For the 2006-2007 fiscal year, President Bush has proposed a military budget of over $530 billion USD. This level of spending is almost equal to ALL of the world's military spending combined! It's clear that China is in no position to challenge the U.S. here.

With regard to the militarisation of space, VP Cheney cannot criticise others without being hypocritical. The U.S. has dabbled in kinetic anti-satellite weapons for decades. The first successful test occurred in September 1985.

Recently, the Bush Administration unilaterally withdrew from the ABM Treaty of 1972. They've commenced testing various anti-missile systems that the China fears could negate its own nuclear deterrent. These systems may also theoretically be used against satellites.

When will this man come and learn a little culture so that at least he will blend in with the maistream of world societies, the days of people usining fear to obtain their goals are part of the past, modern societies are now advanced and they do not adhear to fear and threats, in other words BULLIES are out and TRUTH, JUSTICE, and EQUALITY, ARE IN------------SO GET WITH IT MAN

CHENEY, YOU ARE OUT OF YOUR TIMES, GO JUMP IN A LAKE, and make sure it is a FRESH WATER LAKE, SO THAT YOU WILL SINK FASTER---BLOO--BLOO--BLOO-blooooooooooo Blooooooooooooooooooo.

  Poor Uncle Sam probably still does not know that, as of today, no one is taking his words too seriously, with the exception of his pet dog Japan. Even his so-called close ally the Brits are withdrawing troops from the desert to the dismay of the poor Uncle Sam. Yes, Uncle Sam can still talk tough,as always, but who cares? Not Iran, not N. Korea, not Venezuela and definitely Not China. China must develop a military might within her means to deter all potential aggressors, but it does not hurt for China to give some soft-talks at times while engaging in such a military build-up.

  Wasn't it Cheney who mistook his friend for a mountain lion and shot him? And he didn't even shoot straight, because the man survived.
The "peaceful" part in "peaceful rise" is the most threatening to myopic skinheads like Cheney, because then their expensive guns become useless.
  
Zxx 2007-02-24 15:59
  Dick Cheney is a dangerous man in that he thinks he could sucker Aussies and others with his demagogically insubstantial speech.
America is in all sorts of trouble because of shallow people like him and Americans are disgusting because they tend to follow such leader's train of thoughts which are myopic and shameless and even that after a fashion.
I do not wish you bad, but I certainly have to wish you good luck now, America, cos' I feel sorry for you.

  Militarisation of space has been actively pursued by America since the sputnik in 1960. China has long pleaded with America to be reasonable and disarm but the white supremacists hawks in America is dreaming their dreams of world dominating the world and the days when they were ruling India and had 25 servants for each of them and dozens of Indian women to exploit sexually.

China does not has any reason to debate with irrational and racist Americans but rather hopes that decent average American can prevent the rogue elements in America from dragging them into war and dwon in despair. America is in deep ---- and the average Americans must get rid of crazy and power mad morons like Cheney.
  
Mark Burrows 2007-02-24 15:41
  Ausralians know that Cheney is an evil idiot. He is undemocratic and seek to impose his will on the free nations of the world. His speeches are full of bigotry and lacking in logic.

Destroying a stateliite is far, far, far away from being an offensive technique but rather a defensive technique. Can auch a method be used to attack the soil of another nation. America's statements of peace in the world is inconsistent with it obsence military expenditure and constant development of WMDs. Militarisation of sp
  
Concerned 2007-02-24 15:39
  Lets not allow tricky Dicky Cheney's cheap shot stop China from modernizing its military. Make no mistake about it the only rational way for China to accomplish its "peaceful rise" is to show the American warmongers that China has developed the capability to shoot down ALL US Global Positioning Satellites in space and render all US smart bombs, cruise missiles, aircraft and carrier groups useless when push turns to shove, either by kinetic missiles or EMP or land based lasers.

China also need to show the Americans that it has a second strike capability in the pacific by deploying hundreds of submarines capable of striking continental America with nuclear bombs. This is the language the Americans know and respect just like the MAD doctrine during the cold war.

China also needs to let the Americans know in no uncertain terms that it will stop lending any more money to the US by not turning up at the US treasury auctions to buy US Treasury bonds, if the US violates the 3 Shanghai communiques on Taiwan.

And if push turns to shove China must be prepared to sell off all US dollar and dollar assets which will plunge the dollar value below the floor board and spike interest rate in America which will meltdown Wall street.

This is the language that the Americans understand as the US is basically bankrupt, according to prof Kotlikoff of Boston university.

America has a grand total debts (federal, state, agencies, consumer and corp) of US$44 trillions plus unfunded debt of another US$65.9 trillion (social security, medicare and medicaid) making a grand grand total of US$109.9 trillion which the US has no way to pay back, unless by worthless, hyper-inflated green backs.

On top of these collossal debts 68 million baby boomers will retire in 2008 and they will find that there are no pension funds left as these have been spent by successive, profligate US administrations starting with Reagan, also known as "Mr Deficit".

In fact the US$620 billion US defense budget is all borrowed money, mostly from Asia, notably China and Japan.

Can a nation be a superpower for long if it has to borrow money from its perceived "adversary" like China to fund its military? I doubt it.

All Empires collapse because of bankruptcy like the Roman Empire, the Ottoman and British Empires and so will the American military empire, into the scrap heap of history.

Lets hope China won't make a mistake of starting an Empire.

So don't believe a word of tricky Dicky Cheney and continue to modernise the Chinese military as this will ensure a really peaceful rise long into the 21th century.

  To: DJ,

what are you talking about ?

you are defending american aggressor that is your problem, but we want to warn you that aggressor has no good end in the last. Korean war, Vietnam war, Iraq war...even honest americans have opposed the american ggressor in Iraq, pls don't turn a blind eye to the facts.

ONCE AN AMERICAN AGGRESSOR ALWAYS AN AMERICAN AGGRESSOR !

don't you see that american aggressor has never stopped bullying and invading other countries since untied states of america established ?

Has China invaded America ? america had killed Martin Luther King for thirty eight more years, because his famous word " I HAVE A DREAM".
can Martin's word come true ? Never.

Dick is just an "evil dick" Aussie said, and he is a real warmonger who is now pointing his dirty finger at China, but can it work ? useless !
POWERFUL CHINA WILL NOT WITHDRAW ITS TEST BECAUSE OF DICK'S DIRTY PROTEST. CHINA WILL DO WHAT IT IS RIGHT FOR ITS PEOPLE !
  
rising higher 2007-02-24 14:26
  Hey Cheney! listen...

When China says "peaceful rise" it means more than just that two words. To illustrate my point, I use the example of 2 neighbors.

One living in luxury, powerful, probably wasteful too. And the other one living next door, poor, suppressed and bullied. As times go by the poor neighbor becomes richer and stronger.

But the rich neighbor cannot tolerate seeing the poor neighbor getting stronger everyday and is then obsessed with evil thoughts of how to slow it down or stop it from progressing if possible. The fear that the poor neighbor would become so powerful and challenge it's authority is unbearable!

What can the poor neighbor do? (1) Remain poor and be bullied or (2) stage a fight now? or (3) build up steadily, peacefully and in a harmonious manner?

I am sure (1) is not an option. (3) would be the Chinese way. Please understand Cheney, your rhetoric is not working and boring too! it's time you recognise the fact and perhaps learn to live like a harmonious neighbor...

  The US can build up its military might to insure her status as superpower of the universe, but no one else is allowed to do the same. Except Israel or those who will support US interests.
