World over-thinking China's military intentions

(Global Times)

13:48, December 09, 2011

President Hu Jintao's speech Tuesday to the Chinese Navy representatives caught the attention of foreign media, which focused on two lines: China must "accelerate the transformation of its navy" and "make extended preparations for military combat."

The instructions Hu gave to the Navy are hardly different to what any country's leader or commander-in-chief may give to his military. That is the routine requirement for any military force, especially those of a developing country.

Any country should look at this from a normal perspective, otherwise they may overinterpret China's military moves.

Most of the misunderstandings towards China's national defense in recent years have been based on an unrealistic presumption, that China's rise should not include the modernization of its military.

The rise of China is a major event for the world. The growing economic power has already brought about anxiety among some players on the world stage, and the concern about a possible "military threat" comes as no surprise.
