Bài học không cũ từ bãi cạn Scarborough

30/03/2021 11:06 GMT+7

TTO – Sự kiện bãi cạn Scarborough năm 2012 chỉ là vấn đề của Philippines và Trung Quốc. Sự kiện hơn 200 “tàu cá” Trung Quốc có mặt ở đá Ba Đầu hiện nay là vấn đề lớn hơn thế nhiều.

What should Vietnam do to ensure China’s proper behavior in the East Sea?

Dear brothers and sisters,

The world obviously is fed up with China’s belligerence and lawlessness in the oceans (The East Sea, Yellow sea, East China sea and maybe a bunch of other seas including Artic Ocean). So the world powers (USA, Australia, Japan, India, French, Britain, Germany… and maybe more to come) are getting together to form an alliance to deal with China.

Vietnam is the country affected most by China’s behavior, but VN has been very quiet about it. This is probably because Vietnam has the policy of “being friends of all nations” and “whatever happens, we still need to live in peace with our neighbor China.”

What else do you think Vietnam should do now, to ensure China’s proper behavior in the East Sea? Đọc tiếp What should Vietnam do to ensure China’s proper behavior in the East Sea?

Beijing bolsters the role of the China Coast Guard


Coast Guards' Role in the South China Sea – The Diplomat

BY SUMATHY PERMAL | MARCH 1, 2021
AMTI UPDATE

Beijing’s South China Sea moves have ramped up with the passing of a law allowing the China Coast Guard (CCG) to fire on what it identifies as illegal foreign vessels in waters under its jurisdiction. By virtue of China’s nine-dash line claim, this law applies to the entire South China Sea. Given that China’s claims are opposed by other South China Sea claimants as well as numerous non-claimant countries, the law has proven controversial and raises concerns over whether it will increase the risk of confrontation and conflict in the disputed waters.

Pluralism and freedom vs. Communist autocracy

During his Senate confirmation hearing last week to be the next director of national intelligence, Texas Republican Rep. John Ratcliffe emphasized China is this country’s “greatest threat actor,” a status only confirmed by rising acrimony over Beijing’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic. But though tensions are rising in the South China Sea, where U.S. Navy missions challenge China’s unsubstantiated claims of hegemony over the region, an actual war between the two powers appears unlikely.

But are the United States and China on a path to a new Cold War?

The heart of U.S.-China conflict is in the realm of ideas. Democratic principles of liberty, pluralism and freedom are antithetical to China’s autocratic Communist state and Chinese President Xi Jinping’s expanding cult of personality. Through its ubiquitous state surveillance and “Great Firewall” on online dissent, China seeks to deny its citizens freedom of expression and access to the outside world.

On August 31, 1951, representatives of the United States and the Republic of the Philippines signed the Mutual Defense Treaty (MDT) in Washington. In recognition that “an armed attack in the Pacific Area on either of the Parties would be dangerous to [the] peace and safety” of both countries, the treaty declared that each state would “act to meet the common dangers in accordance with its constitutional processes.”i However, like most conventional defense treaties and standards, the MDT is not clear about the increasingly common unconventional gray zone threats that skirt the definition of war to avoid prompting a kinetic response. Since its inception, the United States’ commitment to the MDT regarding attacks on Philippine assets in contested waters in the South China Sea has been unclear.
