US should put the breaks on China's expansion into South China Sea

国外讨论:美国如何应对中国的南海扩张



With North Korea dominating the headlines out of Asia, not enough attention is being paid to major developments dealing with the South China Sea – the major cause of tensions in the larger Indo-Pacific region before North Korea started testing its long-range missiles and nuclear explosives. China recently placed advanced anti-ship missiles and air-defense batteries on islands it has built in the South China Sea – yes, China has built its own islands from almost nothing, using some of the world’s most advanced dredging technology. Just a cursory look at any map of Asia and one quickly realizes that whoever dominates the South China Sea dominates East Asia – largely negating Washington’s own role in the region

随着朝鲜成为了亚洲新闻头条,人们似乎忘记了南海局势的进展。在朝鲜测试长程导弹和核武器之前,南海问题一直都是亚太地球局势紧张的主要原因。中国最近在南海的人造岛屿上部署了先进的反舰导弹和防空导弹。是的,中国运用了世界上最先进的挖泥技术建成了这些岛屿。只要看看亚洲地图就知道,谁主宰了南海谁就主宰了东亚,能在大体上抵消美国在该地区的角色。
