So what are China's next strategy moves in the Asia-Pacific Region? What does the PLA really think about the U.S. military and its capabilities? --a bizarre perception that encourages them to push now. China has now been successful at establishing its Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) in the East China Sea. In the process, we have seen a bizarre, almost schizophrenic, series of contradictory communications on the subject coming out of Washington that have enhanced China's successful roll-out. Following the roll-out, we witnessed a near collision by U.S. and Chinese naval ships in the East China Sea along with the departure of China's lone aircraft carrier (sans aircraft) for the South China Sea for a "show the flag" cruise. So what are China's next strategy moves in the Asia-Pacific Region? What does the PLA really think about the U.S. military and its capabilities? --a bizarre perception that encourages them to push now. This program is Part 2 of the conversation between "Asia in Review" Host David Day and China Hand Michael Sacharski. Mr. Sacharski has spent some 3+ decades in China, met and worked with various members of its leadership and has fascinating perspectives to share about China's ADIZ planning & gameplan, its unexpected success in the imposition of its new ADIZ in the East China Sea, and what strategic moves we can now expect China to make in the Asia-Pacific Region in the near term.
