US ‘stoking up tensions’ to gain regional role

By Cui Haipei and Ma Liyao, Jan 11, 2012 —

BEIJING – The United States’ recent published Defense Strategic Guidance (DSG), which calls for a renewed focus on the Asia-Pacific, may contribute to regional instability, analysts said.

The DSG, released by the Obama administration on Jan 5 stated that "while the US military will continue to contribute to security globally, we will of necessity rebalance toward the Asia-Pacific region".

The report, though not China-centered, said that "over the long term, China’s emergence as a regional power will have the potential to affect the US economy and our security in a variety of ways".

Analysts said that strategic shift in US defense policy aims at stoking up regional tension and may accelerate the militarization of the region. . . .
