Why the Sino -Japanese Conflict is a Top Priority for the White House.

Shino-Japanese tension derives from many different avenues over its 2,000 year history . As far as recent history is concerned , 2006 marked the first mutual and warm relations. The pervious tension came from Japan’s refusal to truly acknowledge Japans WWII wartime crimes against its Chinese neighbor to the capacity that would satisfy Chinese hardliners. Combine that with the conflicts over who has legal right of the Senkaku Islands and its enormous natural gas reserves . China is well and ready to use military force to capture such energy reserves. Japan has the upper hand with the United States as the dominate force in Pacific.

Collective security goes beyond the military realm to include a wider array of security problems. It assumes that states will relinquish sovereignty and freedom of action or inaction to increasing interdependence and the premise of the indivisibility of peace. This research challenges Kenneth Waltz’s balance of power approach to security because as a theory, balance of power predicts that rapid changes in international power and status especially attempts by one state to conquer a region will provoke counterbalancing actions. For this reason, the balancing process is thought to maintain the stability of relations between states For its parsimony and theoretical rigor, neorealism has been the baseline for most of IR theory over the last 20 years. It has prompted a rich literature critiquing it on a number of fronts: for instance, neoliberals say that it does not take seriously enough the possibility that states may choose absolute over relative gains, particularly in situations where institutions can alter payoffs; constructivists argue that its fails to recognize the manner in which agents and structures are mutually constitutive; and people from all over the map say that it is too generalized and yields little in the way of testable implications. Nevertheless, the theory has been hugely influential.

China now the worlds second largest economy seeks to exert itself in the Pacific and create a domince regional homogany of its own design. China’s economic policy was has been coined “The Five Year Plan”. The plan, as laid out by U.S analyst, is for China to oversee the acceleration and restructuring of the economy towards a free market economy. When examining realism the People’s Republic of China as the quintessential examples of Realism as defined by Viotti & Kauppi. Realism is based Realism as defined by Viotti & Kauppi consist of four elements, the first being that states are the primary actors or the most significant actors. Viotti & Kauppi place great emphasis the fact the importance of the state is primary in realism. The progress and success of the collective state almost lends itself to nationalist ideology in the sense that policies are generated and pursued based on the needs of the state rather than various entities within the state. Japan is the ideal partner to offer a forward operating counter position . The United State is only player that can deter future Chinese Aggression.
