The Storm Clouds That Cancelled the Sino-U.S. Summit Were Not from Katrina

From the Epoch Times

By He Qinglian

The Chinese government rapidly made full preparations for chief executive Hu Jintao’s visit to the US, spending vast amounts of effort on easing the increasing tension between the two countries. In order to “fix” relations with Congress, the Chinese government invited Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert to lead a delegation of nineteen congressmen to China, and confirmed that it would place an order for fifty Boeing airplanes from the U.S. The Chinese government issued the white paper, “China's Endeavors for Arms Control, Disarmament and Non-Proliferation,” on September 1st in order to ameliorate the effects of General Zhu Chenghu’s nuclear threats against the US and to dissipate the militant image created by the China-Russia Joint Military Exercise...


He Qinglian, the author of “Modernization’s Pitfalls,” is perhaps the most famous Chinese economic commentator.

I think Japan and China's relationship will define the start of the 21st century. Because these nations have a vested interest in control of the pacific. I believe there are just too many flash points for them to stay peaceful.

Taiwan and the straits of Malacca are both very important shipping lanes for east Asia. The Koreas could flare up at any point, which would cause Japan to go nuclear. Then there are the Senkaku/diaoyu islands and their natural gas fields.

And because of the building friction between the two they will begin a larger military buildup which will just perpetuate the cycle. It will build to a head and the rest will be history…( there are enough Chinese conflict posts)
