Beijing, Nov.10 (People's Daily Online) -- Recently, the United States has made frequent high-profile moves in Asia. After the U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta finishes his visit in Japan, South Korea and Indonesia, the U.S. President will attend an informal summit of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation in Hawaii on Nov. 12 and Nov. 13. The United States is paying increasing attention to Asia. Regarding this issue, a People's Daily reporter interviewed three experts on the issue.

Huang Ping, head of the Institute of American Studies under the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.

Shen Jiru, researcher from the Institute of World Economics and Politics under the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.

Reporter: What are the characteristics of America's current Asia policy? How are Asian countries reacting to the policy?

Shen Jiru: Properly managing relations with China is at the core of America's current Asia policy. The Chinese and U.S. economies are highly interdependent, and the United States needs China's cooperation and support in the handling of many issues.

The increasing common interests between the two countries have become a major obstacle to the U.S. policy of containing China. A main purpose of the United States' "return to Asia" is to obtain enormous benefits from China's rise, so it is unlikely to be used by certain Asian countries to counter China's rise. A few Asian countries do expect to take advantage of the United States to contain China, but that is just wishful thinking.

No one can destroy China but Chinese self. Who is our enemy? Our enemy is within ourselves.History is a mirror, truth can not be changed, ...

Have you ever consider the fact that Washington may just decide to conquer China? If that is done and is successful, all the huge resources of China - its human capital,raw materials, infrastucture, labour, machineries, and methods will all be under the U.S."s control, thus making it the undisputed power on the planet.Just remember the U.S. still have the most powerful military on earth and they have the most nuclear weapons whereas China is just a weakling with miniscule nuclear weapons in stock. And not forgetting that Beijing doesn"t seem to have quite learnt its lessons from History of allowing small, little nations and tribes conquering it becuae it doesn"t have a strong standing military. Beijing"s current policy on its nuclear weapons is reminiscent of making the mistake in relation to today"s global military balance.Thus if America"s nationalism takes precedence in Washington"s policy making and global domination ambitin, sorry to say, China will be an American colony.

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