China’s Strategy Active Defense Not Anti-access, Area Denial


Active Defense Means Attack for Defense. The strategists of active defense regard attack as the best way of defense.

Lowyinstitute.org’s article “China’s counteroffensive in the war of ideas” on February 24, 2020 shows US strategists’ entire ignorance of China’s strategy.

China’s latest Defense White Paper makes it very clear that China’s strategy is active defense but the article still regards “anti-access, area denial” as China’s military strategy and believes that China’s offensives in the war of ideas are counteroffensives that mirror “its ‘anti-access, area denial’ military strategy”.

China held two South-South Human Rights Forums in 2017 and 2019 not for counteroffensives but for spreading the human rights it advocates among the vast number of developing countries. The Beijing Declaration approved by the participants of the 2017 forum regards the rights to subsistence and development as basic human rights different to the human rights system advocated by the West.

To advocate its one-party system, China held high-level dialogue between the Communist Party of China (CPC) and political parties from around the world from November 30 to December 3, 2017.

SCMP says in its report about the dialogue that according to Xinhua, the meeting was attended by representatives from over 300 overseas political groups mostly from Southeast Asia, Central Asia and Africa, but the Republican Party in the US and Russian ruling party United Russia also sent representatives.

Xi said in his speech to the dialogue, “We do not import foreign models, and we do not export the China model, either,” and “We will not require other countries to copy what we do.”

Xinhua says in its report, “Many speakers attributed China’s success to the choice of a path based on its own characteristics and praised its standing of ‘not exporting the Chinese model.’”

That implies that China provides an example of choosing the way of development based on a country’s own characteristics instead of importing other countries’ ways, which clearly means negation of importing Western democracy.

In addition, Xi said the Chinese Communist Party would step up communications with overseas political groups and enable 15,000 of their members to visit China for inter-party exchanges in the coming five years.

China will certainly incur lots of costs in providing accommodation, travel and other treatments to the 15,000 members of overseas political groups to convince them that Western democracy is not their only choice.

The above shows that China is making offensive instead of counteroffensive in conducting its active defense—Attack is the best way of defense.

    A very insightful article into that exposes the absolute, core values of the western world’s governments.

    Powerful laser weapons have negated Chinese missile weapons. And America has the lead in this technology, The speed of light is way faster that ANY hypersonic missile China can develop

      The J-20 is the first stealth fighter to have laser instead of guns which the F35 has that causing all kinds of problems. This tells me who has the technological edge with lasers.

      Are you fucking stupid? America has 0 laser weapons in active service, Russia has at least one very powerful point-defense laser known as the Peresvet, and China has a football-field sized laser station designed to shoot down satellites + very likely something like Russia’s Peresvet.

      As for you, little one, do u know how much further ahead China is in drone tech? They conducted several very public displays last year showcasing their prowiss, one of which was where huge numbers converged from great distances ,seamlessly, all arriving on time and where directed.
      The United snakes has yet to respond.

      The opposite is true if the americunts.

    United Snakes sounds better.
    The white vermin likes to insult the Chinese with their dog eater stories (it’s actually the flips and the gooks that are fond of them; the Chinese only resorted to that dung extreme famine ), but it’s themost that actually have a uniquely American dish called hot dog……
    Also , Chinese restaurants thrive in their cuntries; a silent admission of how they can’t resist our cuisine

    This South-South human rights high level forum between the CPC and international foreign delegates in advocating China’s One party governance is in fact, Exporting Socialism with Chinese Characteristics without Export. This is another Chinese ingenuity, a clever brainchild of the CPC.

    By inviting (‘importing’) the 15,000 foreign delegates, China is imparting Socialism with Chinese Characteristics and exporting via the delegates.

    This is Sun Tzu principles art of war without firing a single shot – that is, ” The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting. Supreme excellence consists of breaking the enemy’s resistance without fighting.” The enemy is the united scoundrels of american democracy.

    Who says there is no such thing as a free lunch.? Just ask the delegates – free brekky, lunch, dinner, etc. Even the White lawless dog House send representatives from the Republican party.
