In response to the proximity of the Larsen missile destroyer to the adjacent waters of the Nansha Island reef, the US military said that this was a "normal cruise", meaning that it might continue to send warships to "12 nautical miles" in the future. If the United States does this, it will lead to China's escalation of response measures, and the situation in the South China Sea will evolve in a direction that the United States does not want to see.
If US warships come back and forth, think about what China will do. It is certain that Chinese warships will "wait" for them in the Nansha waters. The more and more US ships come, the more Chinese warships will be "waiting". This requires the follow-up of military deployment capabilities. The result will be to force China to speed up the construction of military facilities on the expansion of the island reefs, so that their militarization is sufficient to provide support to the PLA and the US ship.
After the sea level is intensified, air support must keep up, and the runway on the island reef should be used. Once the US provocatively normalizes, it is expected to deploy Chinese combat aircraft on the island reef. If the construction of these islands and reefs does not help to maintain China's territorial integrity, but because they attract the "invasion" of external military forces, and they do not play any role in resisting "invasion," these islands and reefs will disappoint all Chinese.
In an interview with the media, American scholar Ge Laiyi also admitted that the highest consideration of the US action is to influence the change of China’s behavior toward “positive rather than negative”. She said that the Obama administration should consider China's possible reaction. Will it further encourage China to take the opportunity to declare that it is necessary to establish a "South China Sea Air Defense Identification Zone"?
China has repeatedly stated that our expansion of the Nansha Island Reef will be mainly used for the cause of peace and provide support and services for the economic development of the South China Sea region. China’s strategy is first and foremost a peaceful development. Expanding the islands and reefs to add a tight military zone to the Nansha region is definitely not the wish of the Chinese. The United States has repeatedly opposed the use of those islands and reefs by China for military purposes, but it is indeed pushing China in that direction with actual actions, and even forced it.
It is difficult to understand who is planning to send a warship to Nansha to "cruise". What are some people in the US military? Why are they so short-sighted that they will only take one step and not take a few steps forward. They are almost on the same level with the online enthusiasm for a moment of anger, thinking that sending a warship to Nansha will grow the face of the United States, shake its prestige, will usher in the cheers of the allies, and China will sweep away from the prestige.
Why don’t they think about how China will react? Can China have a card in hand? China has been very restrained. We are fully capable of driving the Philippines’ forces away from their illegally occupied islands and reefs, but not so. do. Every action taken by China in the South China Sea was forced by other provocative parties. The Philippines arrested Chinese fishermen on Huangyan Island, which led to China taking action on Huangyan Island. We would like to say that the United States should not force China to build the island reef into a military outpost to deal with the harassment and interference of the US ship. To put it bluntly, China is deploying military power to those islands and reefs. What can the United States do? It dares to take direct military action against those islands and reefs. Please ask the Commander of the Pacific Command, Mr. Harris, to call Mr. Obama. Ask him if he has the guts.
Americans must remember the fact that the South China Sea is at the doorstep of the Chinese nation, and the territorial disputes here involve China's core interests. And many Americans don't know where the South China Sea is. The strategic determination of the United States to act in the South China Sea and China’s determination to defend its sovereignty are not the same thing. The United States does not try these two determinations.
We hope that the US side will say "normalization". The waters adjacent to the Chinese island reef are just full of trains. The US ship has already been there, and the United States has to do what its Asia-Pacific brothers have done. I hope it knows how to stop. Otherwise, China’s speeding up military construction of related islands and reefs will be inevitable. Then, let’s see how Washington can clean up its face.
