Main Culprit in Aggravation of Regional Situation

The U.S. military moves in the Asia-Pacific region are now on the increase.

One of its good examples is the joint military exercise “Pacific Vanguard” which was recently conducted by the U.S. together with Canada, Australia, Japan and the south Korean puppets in the Philippine Sea.

Even actual war drills such as missile-launching have been conducted in this exercise where various warships such as USS “Barry”, the “Arleigh Burke”-class Aegis destroyer were mobilized.

Prior to this, the U.S. has also staged the largest-scale joint military exercise “RIMPAC” in the Pacific with the participation of more than 20 countries as well as the ballistic missile detecting and tracking exercise “Pacific Dragon”.

The U.S. is reeking of the powder fumes of successive joint military exercises under different codenames in the already-sensitive Asia-Pacific region. Its ulterior purpose is to maintain its military supremacy in the region.

According to the open sources, with more than half of world population and newly emerging economic nations concentrated, the Asia-Pacific region accounts for 60% of the world GDP and two thirds of global economic growth, and it is called as “political and economic center of 21 st century” for its rich resources, big market and major marine trade routes.

Extending its influence to such geostrategically important region cannot but be a vital issue to the U.S. which is dreaming of global dominance.

Since the U.S. has long coveted this region, it devised pivot to Asia-Pacific strategy, Asia-Pacific rebalance strategy and Indo-Pacific strategy, and ran high fever in various military exercises and arms buildup in the region under the signboards of “counter-terrorism”, “disaster rescue”, and “freedom of navigation”.

The reckless military moves of the U.S. are becoming an important factor in aggravating the regional situation to extremes as it constitutes an open challenge to the international peace and security.

The dark clouds of a new cold-war are hanging heavily over the Asia-Pacific region due to the anachronistic external policy of the U.S. to maintain its hegemony through “supremacy of power” and its perilous military acts.

The international society is now raising voice of concern, saying that the U.S.-led joint military exercises are acting as a fuse setting off military confrontation in the Asia-Pacific, where the strategic interests of countries collide with each other.

The countries in the Asia-Pacific region should apprehend the seriousness of situation and put a stop to the reckless military moves of the U.S. which completely undermines the peace and stability of the region.
