The United States and China "play muscle" in the waters of the South China sea, thereby increasing the level of tension in the region, say experts interviewed by the publication.
The situation worsened after the USS Lassen, according to the foreign Ministry of China, without the approval of Beijing entered the waters of the South China sea near the disputed Nansha Islands (Spratly Islands), which China considers to be its. The Chinese foreign Ministry expressed protest to the United States, saying that these actions violate the sovereignty of China.
"I'm not going to talk about the strategy: we deal With 2 wolves, which face one another. On one side stands an old male, which this is not the 1st ten years leads the world pack. On the reverse side we see a young wolf that wishes to challenge him, " says the historian, a leading blog Historionomie Philippe Fabry.
according to his statement, the States want to demonstrate that in the end remain a hegemon, for example in the region, despite the fact that China became a world power. The United States has undertaken actions are aimed not only to exert pressure on China, but also friends and allies of the US capital in the field, which he seeks to reassure.
in the near future the US will resort to rough tactics, playing the muscles in front of the opponent, who will respond in kind, I'm sure Fabry.
in his vision, the actions of the US capital should be seen as a consequence of long-term strategy, the United States, according to which the center of influence in the country is shifting to the Pacific region After the direction of the world economy.
"The tension is palpable, and the stakes are high" - commented the Professor of history and international relations Alexander Wotever, noting that currently increases first Beijing built artificial island for the bases, electronic listening and radar.
Watever drew attention to the fact that, despite the declared " pivot to Asia ", us forces in the Pacific region in practice has not been expanded because of the Ukrainian and Syrian crises and the decisions of the administration of Barack Hussein Obama on budget cuts.
"one way or another in the near future serious incidents to wait is hardly worth it, however, to consider the situation in the long run: as time passes, the motivations and tensions will become greater, and the power of China will grow ", - said Philippe Fabry.
Agree with him Alexander Wotever, claiming that as long as neither American nor the Chinese government does not have the ability to afford to start a new crisis in Asia. In this situation, the source of the greatest danger becomes the unexpected incident, which could result in uncontrolled escalation in the arms race in the Pacific.
