Recently, the U.S. gets more pronounced in its moves to step up redeployment of its military strength in the Asia-Pacific region.

A few days ago, the Global Times of China denounced it as an act of creating an atmosphere of encircling China and threatening the peace in the region when the U.S. and Japan have been conducting the military exercises from November 21 to 30 in the waters off China, bringing in even the warships from Australia, Canada and Germany.

In early September, the U.S. defense secretary, at the first press conference held just after the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, asserted that the U.S. would concentrate special efforts on eliminating security threats from China. After that, he maintained that the U.S. Congress should continue to increase investment in improving the military posture and the capacity of the U.S. troops in the Asia-Pacific region.

From that time on, the U.S. staged joint military exercises, the largest ever since the Cold War in rapid succession by mustering the members of “Quad”, the UK, France, Germany and the countries in the region. In particular, it has conducted not long ago an exercise against submarine and torpedo warfare together with the Japanese marine self-defense forces by deploying its naval forces to the South China Sea.

Worse still, it is trying to involve more countries and forces in forming the encirclement ring around China by stirring up public opinions about the remarks made by the former U.S. officials including ex-deputy assistant secretary of the U.S. Defense Department and other experts who said that “Quad” should be converted into an “alliance against hegemony” to counter the geopolitical ambition of China.

Such a tendency shows that the U.S. administration has now entered a serious stage of execution after reaching a conclusion that the work to beef up its military strength in the Asia-Pacific region is a prerequisite to contain China.

It also betrays the true motive of the U.S. that is trying to deter China militarily by converting “Quad” into a military alliance and building “NATO of Asia” based on it.

The international society should see through and stand on the highest alert against the aggressive nature of the U.S. which is deliberately aggravating the regional situation to find an excuse needed for holding sway over the Asia-Pacific region.
