U.S. Foreign Policy Blunder Further Alienates China: If U.S. Wants China As Enemy, China Will Become One

Not long after the White House and Congress charged top officials with cyber attacks on U.S. targets, now Washington goes even further with new allegations that China says is full of hegemony, threats, and intimidation:

As US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel used a security forum in Singapore to criticize Chinese “intimidation” tactics in the South China Sea disputes, Beijing rebuked the US for its “completely non-constructive” comments “full of hegemony and threats.”

Hagel’s speech was full of hegemony,” said Lt. Gen. Wang Guanzhong, as quoted by The Financial Times. “It was…filled with instigation, threat and intimidation, which wanted to incite the destabilizing factors of Asia-Pacific region to stir up disputes.”

In his address to the Shangri-La Dialogue conference, Hagel commented on China’s recent tensions with Vietnam and the Philippines over disputed territories in the South China Sea, as well as its establishment of an air defense identification zone in the East China Sea – which includes islands that both China and Japan claim as their own.

In recent months, China has undertaken destabilizing, unilateral actions asserting its claims in the South China Sea. It has restricted access to Scarborough Reef; put pressure on the long-standing Philippine presence at the Second Thomas Shoal; begun land reclamation activities at multiple locations; and, moved an oil rig into disputed waters near the Paracel Islands,” Hagel said.

Those charges are “groundless,” Maj. Gen. Zhu Chenghu stressed to Wall Street Journal, adding that “the Americans are making very, very important strategic mistakes right now.”

“If you take China as an enemy, China will absolutely become the enemy of the US,” Gen. Zhu warned. “If the Americans take China as an enemy, we Chinese have to take steps to make ourselves a qualified enemy of the US. But if the Americans take China as a friend, China will be a very loyal friend; and if they take China as a partner, China will be a very cooperative partner.”
