US unlikely to contain China's rise (2)

(People's Daily)

17:08, November 10, 2011

Huang Ping: Making full use of "smart power" (combination of hard and soft powers) is a feature of the United States' policies towards Asia. On the one hand, the United States is strengthening its economic, security and military relations with its traditional alliances.

On the other hand, it is also establishing or widening its relations with emerging countries and regions. In this way, the United States could not only continue being present in Asia but also continue playing the leader role in Asia.

However, most Asian countries actually do not want to take sides between the United States and China, and instead they are willing to deal with things based on their own interests. Of course, how well they could manage the balance between China and the United States depends on their skills. In a word, it is not practical economically for Asia to go without China, and it is also not practical in terms of security for Asia to go without the United States.

One word... Paranoia!

it the jew"s community and jew-congress, that are thrashing, threatening and blackmailing china.only USA-taxpayers can stop the jew"s from threatening china and the world at large.

China needs only to solve its problems internally and spur its development. nations fail not by external foes only but more by internal corrosion.

The US will always be up to some mischief. It is in the nature of a declining power to behave in such a manner. Unable to prevent China"s rise, the US will connive with other countries in the region to constrain China economically, diplomatically and militarily. But China is not without leverage of her own. If the US chooses to interfere in the issue of the sovereignty of the South China Sea, Beijing can also make forays into south America - which a Chinese military delegation led by Gen Chen Bingde did recently - an area which Washington traditionally sees as its own exclusive sphere of influence. If the US believes in instigating India to get embroiled in the South China Sea issue, China too can counter it in the form of making forays into the Maldives and Sri Lanka. China can furthermore calibrate its trade and investments to reward those countries that remain friendly towards China and penalise those who have American agenda up their sleeves. The economic clout of China is larger today than ever in the past in the light of the economic malaise facing Europe and America. The Chinese civilian and military leadership are not stupid. They have had the benefit of thousands of years of dealing with outside powers in keeping zhongguo intact. There is no good reason why they cannot surmount any American-inspired challenge to the natural rise of China and the dawn of a new age.
