The Sea of Tensions in Asia Pacific Region
The South China Sea has now become a source of tensions between the United States and China, which advocates the resolution of territorial disputes in the region between the parties directly involved.
The frequent differences in trade, human rights and other issues between Washington and Beijing clearly show the interests of the US government in the Asia-Pacific as an attempt to contain the spread and growing influence of the Asian giant.
A fear-mongering Pentagon operation sometimes called the Office of Threat Inflation is now focused to build China into the next imaginary enemy, replacing the Soviet Union that now requires the competitor to be brought to heel.
The new US military posture against China has nothing to do with any aggressive threat from the side of China. The Pentagon has decided to escalate its aggressive military posture to China merely because China has become a strong vibrant independent pole in world economics and geopolitics. Only vassal states need apply to Washington’s globalized world. Like subservient Japan that the US has a historical record of punishing severely for the slightest mistake. The Iraq issue, for example. While gleefully taking in the hundreds of billions from punished Japan to line the pockets of Pentagon, CIA, Congress, and of course the president. The insatiable plundering nature of the USA without dispute.
And so the Asia Pacific region now faces The Obama Doctrine: CHINA - the New Image Enemy.
