US-S.Korean maritime war games needlessly provocative


Source: Global Times [23:21 July 13 2010]

By Shen Dingli

The US and South Korea are implementing joint military exercises this month in the Yellow Sea, with the possibility of deploying the US aircraft carrier George Washington.

The running of such exercises so close to China's waters has left China strongly, and rightfully, dissatisfied.

The joint exercises may take place in the waters of China's interests as the international waters at Yellow Sea near China's exclusive economic zone are extremely important to China's interests.

Though there is still no final words as to where exactly the US-South Korea joint drill will take place, the issue and the tension it has aroused in Northeast Asia will continue for a long time.

Military exercises aimed at provoking other countries in the waters of important Chinese interests can only be seen as a threat, and China should strongly oppose them.

Given the sophisticated equipment it carries, the George Washington poses a real potential threat to Chinese territory.

Even if the US-South Korea military exercises are outside China's territory, the striking power of the US nuclear-powered aircraft carrier also poses a serious threat to neighboring countries.


China's strong reaction is also part of its defensive diplomacy, which aims at dissovling the tension before it escalates into a serious crisis.

During the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962, when the Soviet Union established nuclear missile bases on the island, the US objected to the close proximity of the Soviet weaponry even though they traveled only through international waters to reach Cuba, and the US set up a blockade to stop them being deployed.

When the US ponders the idea of deploying its nuclear aircraft carrier in the Yellow Sea, very close to China, shouldn't China have the same feeling as the US did when the Soviet Union deployed missiles in Cuba?

Historically speaking, for the Chinese public, the Yellow Sea area is also associated with a painful period in history when in 1894 China was defeated by the Japanese navy in the same waters.

Thus it is a sensitive area that could especially agitate Chinese sensitivites.


Such a provocative attitude damages US credibility in the region and its chance to build strong bilateral relations.

China may not have the military strength to forcibly prevent such exercises now, but it may do so in response to such provocative actions in the future.

The US and South Korea have said the military exercises are being held in order to deter North Korea because of the sinking of the South Korean Cheonan corvette and the death of 46 South Korean sailors.

But the case for the possible North Korean sinking of the Cheonan has not been thor-oughly established.

South Korea refused to let North Korean officials present their case against the evidence for their supposed complicity in the sinking.

When South Korea launched the so-called international survey, it refused the participation of China and other countries, which did not increase the credibility of the so-called findings.

The South Korean Defense Ministry also harassed South Korean politicians who ques-tioned the results of the investigation.

China has expressed its condolences to the families of Korean victims in the Cheonan incident. But in executing justice, it is not enough to listen to only one side.

When South Korea started the field investigation, it should have requested that all parties participated, rather than exclude China. The US and South Korea have leapt to conclusions too soon.


These exercises are needlessly provocative, and will eventually backfire on the US and South Korea.

My Dear Com'sec...  I too wish Beijing have the balls that Kim Jong Il does. I mean who doesn't when in the face of disparity? I'm sure also that the Americans are well aware of China's capabilities to give them a run for the money and hence are testing Beijing resolve in the matter. However, as i said, Chinese being what Chinese are ( money hungry grabbing pigs); they will  their mothers and daughters to the highestboidder.
Putin's a killer. This was the claim made by Fox News journalist; Bill O'Reilly during his recent interview with Donald Trump. Trump's reply came in the form of a simple question. What, you think our country's so innocent?

This Chinese pimp mentality is just disgusting... such low they can stoop... !!!

These pimps have money, but they don't spend money to secure the nation's interests because their master US will be offended. These pimps have no idea about patriotism while the reason behind the rise of all powerful nations is patriotism. These pimps make excuses saying some absurd terms such as harmony, peace etc to hide their laziness, weakness, reluctance and inability to invent high tech weapons where as their over lord US develops kinetic killing anti ballistic missile technology as well as hypersonic bombers. These pimps have docked a floating casino called Varyag to show and console the nation that they are building an air craft carrier, but God knows how many centuries it will take for completion. These pimps have forgotten how a tiny island country Japan invaded and plundered their nation without any resistance. These pimps take credit of the Korean war and Vietnam war, but records say these lazy pimps lost all the battles while fighting alone... in case of Korea and Vietnam... I now believe, the credit should go more to the Koreans and Vietnamese than to Chinese. These pimps have abandoned Iran, but see how indians are now adamant to exploit Iran's resources despite US warnings. But US will still support india, because indians are patriotic.

What I want to say is that Chinese nation has always been unlucky to have have coward leaders.... only one time, a star rose in the sky of China.... a true patriot... Mao tse Tung, a brave heart. Alas Mao seems to have been a comet.... as his successors have not matched the caliber that Mao used to possess. Leadership is very important for the rise of any nation. Look at US.... see their past presidents, all of whom are legendary personalities. Thats why US is a superpower now. Nothing is cost free. US fought a number of battles, US lost lives... thats why US became militarily superpower. Winning of a battle is not blood free.

But China wants to remain defenseless forever. China wants to remain a vassal state forever. China wants to remain colonized forever. Why? The answer lies in the Chinese DNA.

I think the ANTI BALLASTIC MISSILE systems are all in the "works"!
Wouldn't the SSN's help to balance American Naval Dominance?

Does Uncle Bear want to do "Joint Development"?
