Huanqiu: the Optimal Strategy of the Chinese Aircraft Carrier

The best approach for Chinese aircraft carriers is to break up any disputes, rather than “directly” partake in the process, according to a Huanqiu editorial.  

“Aircraft carriers cannot help solve the maritime security problems for China. A dozen of them would not do, let alone the rumored five or six. “ 

“We must be clear that it is unrealistic over a very long period of time to bring about the turning point of ‘China strong, U.S weak’ in the Pacific by building aircraft carriers. It is equally unrealistic to bring about a pro-China Asia by intimidating neighbors through a growing military force.”
