Global Times: China Should Have Anti-Space War Capabilities

At the 60th anniversary of the Chinese Air Force, Global Times, a branch of the Chinese state news People’s Daily, published an article suggesting that the Air Force should have capabilities to take on a space war just like a nuclear one. The future new Air Force should be able to block a war four thousand miles away. Since China does not have overseas military bases and aircraft carriers, it is especially important that the Air Force has remote deterrent forces. Many powerful countries nowadays can start a war from space. China needs the capability to defend the land, just like nuclear capabilities.

The article also indicated: (1) more contradictions do not necessarily mean more problems (between the two countries); (2) new economic growth points favor better Sino-US relations; (3) the two countries should have mutual respect for each other’s core interests.

Military Expert: Texas Shooting Will Slow US Overseas Deployment

According to the China Internet Information Center, the central government’s portal site published an interview with Military expert Yue Gang about the severe shooting event at the US military base [Fort Hood] and its impact on US international military activities. Yue believes that the US government is taking this event very seriously because Obama made an announcement on the event very rapidly. He also suggested: (1) A delay in overseas deployment of troops is likely to happen since time is needed to reinforce internal discipline; (2) The U.S. may need to rethink its “military culture” which currently has a low standard caused by a lowered bar of entry due to heavy global military operations. Yue believes the immediate action needed by the US military is to tell the soldiers why they are fighting and who they fight for.
