    Will Retaliate if Offended by US, Warns China General

    The General was reacting to remarks by Admiral Mike Mullen, Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff

    Will retaliate if offended by US, warns China Gen


    Friday, August 13, 2010
    BEIJING

    BEIJING: A Chinese General on Friday termed as "flagrant provocation" US plans to send a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier to the Yellow Sea and said the country would retaliate if "offended".

    "A country needs respect, so does a military. We will retaliate if we are offended," Major General Luo Yuan, deputy secretary-general of the People's Liberation Army's (PLA) Academy of Military Sciences, wrote in an editorial in the PLA Daily.

    The US is "pushing its security boundary to the doorstep of others — the Yellow Sea, South China Sea and so on," Luo said.

    China had in the recent weeks voice its firm opposition to activities of foreign military vessels or planes in the Yellow Sea and China's coastal waters, saying they undermine it security interests.

    Despite China's warning, the US insists on sending the carrier ‘USS George Washington', he said

    The General was reacting to remarks by Admiral Mike Mullen, Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, that the carrier will always go into international waters.

    China is developing a new missile called Dong Feng 21D, that could penetrate the defenses of even the most advanced aircraft carrier at a distance of more than 1,500km.

    Chinese admiral says U.S. drill courts confrontation


    Reuters – Tugboats move the USS George Washington aircraft carrier to a pier in Busan July 21, 2010.

    By Chris Buckley Chris Buckley – Fri Aug 13, 1:58 am ET

    BEIJING (Reuters) – A senior Chinese military strategist called planned U.S. naval exercises in the region a provocation and accused the Obama administration of seeking to encircle China and pursuing a "chaotic" approach toward Beijing.

    The commentary in the top paper of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) was China's latest verbal broadside against Washington, which Beijing has accused of stirring tension in the region with a series of military drills near its borders.

    "On the one hand, it wants China to play a role in regional security issues. On the other hand, it is engaging in an increasingly tight encirclement of China and constantly challenging China's core interests," Rear Admiral Yang Yi wrote in the Liberation Army Daily.

    The Pentagon plans new joint naval exercises with ally South Korea that will send a U.S. aircraft carrier into the Yellow Sea, between China and the Korean peninsula.

    Those exercises are intended to provoke "enmity and confrontation in the Asia-Pacific region," Yang wrote.

    Yang, who works at China's National Defense University, warned that friction over the planned U.S.-South Korea naval exercise reflected broader instability in relations with Beijing, and he placed the blame at Washington's doorstep.

    "Rarely has there been such wavering and chaos in U.S. policy toward China," wrote Yang.

    Yang's commentary came out a day after a similarly angry warning in the paper, suggesting expectations from the PLA for a firm response from Beijing.

    "Washington will inevitably pay a costly price for its muddled decision," Yang wrote in a separate commentary on Friday in the China Daily, the country's main English-language paper.

    "The risks of a collision occurring between the two countries' navies in seas off China's coast are escalating," Wang Jisi, a prominent expert on China-U.S. relations at Peking University, wrote in a recent analysis.

    MILITARY TIES STALL

    China appears unlikely to risk directly challenging any new U.S.-South Korea drills by sending its ships to the same waters, a step that would risk a dangerous escalation in tensions.

    However, its anger with the Obama administration could hold off any upgrading of military relations, which Beijing has curtailed since friction earlier this year over U.S. weapons sales to Taiwan, the self-ruled island claimed by China.

    The planned exercises leave scant chance that U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates will be invited to visit China any time soon, said Xu Guangyu, a former PLA officer and now a researcher at the China Arms Control and Disarmament Association.

    "It's natural for the PLA to speak out first on these issues," Xu told Reuters. "It's the PLA's sacred duty to defend China's territory and interests."

    The U.S. and South Korea last month held a joint naval drill in the Sea of Japan off the Korean peninsula, which brought condemnation from China. It then answered with its own heavily publicized military exercises.

    The Pentagon last week said a U.S. aircraft carrier, the George Washington, which joined in the earlier exercise, would participate in a follow-up drill in the Yellow Sea.

    The United States and South Korea have said their exercises are aimed at warning North Korea, which they blame for torpedoing a South Korean navy ship in March.

    "Anyone clear-sighted can see that this carries something of a warning to China," wrote Yang.

    I think the more likely scenario would be Obummer handing over our aircraft-carrier to China to show them how tolerant we are.

    Maybe we should tell them that our nuclear subs are there anyway.

    China has so much of our money they could buy our entire Navy.

    I was thinking more along the lines of China exerting it's power over the US because they consider it purchased and subservient.

    Conflict is another issue, we have this trade "relationship" that is one sided and China continues to build weapon systems designed to counter ours.

    I doubt that the current administration would do anything but chatter if our aircraft carrier was attacked. I could see a "protest" to UN masters and not much else.

    Such a response from a General of China would have sparked a suspended trade agreement with said country 50 years ago. Oh, but not now, money is more important than even the life of our country or its citizens. Our leaders have no balls. We need to stop supporting China with this great trade imbalance. Those who still support it are guilty of sedetion.
