Obama’s Asia visit and the military alliance: what should the CCP do?
Anchor: The U.S. President Barack Obama visited four Asian
countries. He strengthened the military alliance with Japan
and the Philippines and formed a chain of islands to surround
China. The U.S. also deployed B-2 stealth bombers for the Asia-
Pacific allies and increased aircraft carrier exercises. These
actions are conducted to suppress the “provocative acts" of
the CCP in the East China Sea and South China Sea. In this
regard, the CCP military generals also made up slogans such as
“to fight tonight". Therefore, how to develop US-China
Voice: On Apr. 28, the United States and the Philippines
signed an agreement which allows the U.S. to deploy troops,
ships and aircraft in the Philippines. It means that more U.S.
troops will be transferred to the Philippines.
The US-Philippine relations expert Castro from De La Salle
University Philippines said that this agreement will change
the situation in the South China Sea. It is a message to China:
“We stare at you!"
In recent years, there have been many repeated confrontations
between the CCP, the Philippines and other countries in the
South China Sea due to territorial disputes. In the South
China Sea, a confrontation occurred between Chinese
boats and the warships or survey vessels from the United
States, Indonesia and Vietnam.
The most serious event happened in April 2012, when a
month-long tense confrontation occurred in Huangyan
Island between a Chinese ocean surveillance ship, one
Philippine warship and the Coast Guard boats.
It’s not onlythe South China Sea, “the Diaoyu Islands"
problem has entangled the CCP and Japan in recent years in the
East China Sea.
However, when Obama visited Japan, he said that the U. S.
commitment for the protection of Japan is “absolutely" in the

The Wall Street Journal quoted U.S. officials as saying that
the U.S. military has prepared a variety of programs, which
could be the strong responses to any “provocative actions" of
the CCP in the South China Sea and East China Sea in future.
These programs include dispatching B-2 stealth bombers in
the neighboring regions of China, increasing the reconnaissance
flights of U.S. warplanes, sending aircraft carriers into the
disputed waters close to China, and holding of aircraft
carrier exercises close to China, etc.
This new program was developed by the U.S. Pacific
Command (US Pacific Command) in recent months.
Yen, Chen-Shen, a professor at the Institute of International
Relations, National Chengchi University said: “I think, the
United States does not want to let these tense relations become
a trigger in the future, which could be as out of control as the
situation in the Middle East. It is equal to deterrence to some
Yen, Chen-Shen thought that the U.S. hopes to reach a
balance of military strength in the region by strengthening the
military strength of the allies. Therefore, the risk of war would
The pincer attack formation made by the U.S., Japan and the
Philippines makes some CCP people very unhappy.
Tang Gusheng, the political commander of the South China
Sea Fleet published a strongly worded article in People’s Daily
– the CCP official media and required “to fight tonight” to
deal with the international situation. The hawks Major General
Luo Yuan also pointed out that Obama wanted to intimidate
China (CCP) by showing his attitude to Japan and the
Philippines. He reminded the CCP military needs to be able to
fight tonight and keep up a fighting and victorious gesture.
Ding Shufan, the professor at National Chengchi University:
“These retired PLA generals expressed anger, resentment and
they mentioned to prepare a fight. These are not so very
unexpected. The problem is how the current political leaders
or senior military leaders think. It might be a different matter."
Wu Shengli, the CCP Navy Commander said in the 14th
Western Pacific Naval Symposium (Qingdao, Shandong) that
the current situation in the East China Sea is grim. There is
a possibility of misfires between the China and Japan navies.
There is a need to study how to “fight without fire".
The Sun in Hong Kong expressed their doubts. It was
reported that if the CCP is not ready for the “fire", how to deal
with the devastating war? If the CCP is afraid of “fire" with
Japan, then how to deal with the United States?
This article analyzed that the CCP wants to fight, but they can
not. In the current Chinese military, even the Central Military
Commission Vice Chairman and the deputy minister of the
General Logistics Department are corrupt, who can guarantee
that those weapons will be able to play a role at a critical
Ting Shufan pointed out that although the CCP Central
Military Commission Chairman Xi Jinping also said that the
military must prepare to fight, his intention was to the internal
needs – not only to deal with the military or local
corruption, but also to consolidate his power.
Ding Shufan said that there is no war urgency for the CCP at
