DoD News Briefing
Mr. Kenneth H. Bacon, ASD PA
Tuesday, *September 12, 2000 *- 2:41 p.m.EDT
Q: There's a congressional staff report out that says that China's modernizing its military and
developing joint war-fighting faster than the Pentagon estimates. Would you agree with that assessment,
or do you have a different view?
Q: The Senate is debating an amendment to the China trade bill which would punish China for its weapons
proliferation activities. And a number of speakers, both Democrats and Republicans, have said that China
has not fulfilled its promises to curb its nuclear missile exports. Does the Pentagon have a view on whether
China has fulfilled its promises? I know that the secretary made an issue of the cruise missiles with China in
'98, I believe.
Bacon: Well, I would consider, one, China's promise not to export certain anti-ship cruise missiles to Iran;
that's an example. I would consider China's promise not to sell MTCR- -- missile technology control regime --
class ground-to-ground missiles, whole missiles, to other countries as a sign of progress

Thompson-Torricelli bill offered as amendment to H.R. 4444
the bill that would grant China Permanent Normal Trade Relations
(PNTR) status.
"Granting permanent normal trade status to China without addressing
their abysmal record of spreading weapons of mass destruction signals
to the world that we won't do anything that might offend our trading
partners -- even if it involves our national security," Thompson said
in a September 11 press release.

THOMPSON OFFERS CHINA NONPROLIFERATION ACT
AS AMENDMENT TO CHINA PNTR BILL
WASHINGTON -- *U.S. Senator Fred Thompson *(R-TN) today introduced the
China Nonproliferation Act, his legislation to combat the
proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and missile technologies
by key supplier countries including the People's Republic of China,
Russia, and North Korea. The legislation was offered as an amendment
to the bill granting China Permanent Normal Trade Relations after
repeated attempts to get a separate vote on it were blocked.

In response to a concern that individual companies could face
mandatory sanctions based upon insufficient evidence, the evidentiary
standard for imposing mandatory sanctions on companies identified as
proliferators has been raised to give the President discretion in
determining whether a company has engaged in proliferation activities.

*U.S. - Gulf Cooperation Council Statement*
Following is the text of the joint U.S.-Gulf Cooperation Council statement:
"Members of the Gulf Cooperation Council and the United States met at the ministerial level in
*New York on September 11,* in conjunction with the 55th session of the United Nations General Assembly."
This meeting was conducted within the framework of regular senior consultations about issues of common concern. "The United States and the members of the Gulf Cooperation Council expressed their deep concern that Iraq remains
in clear violation of its obligations under United Nations Security Council resolutions. For both the United
States and the members of the Gulf Cooperation Council, Iraq's failure to comply with its obligations under
UN Security Council resolutions is totally unacceptable."
http://secretary.state.gov/www/briefings/statements/2000/ps000911b.html On-the-Record Remarks by Spokesman Richard Boucher *September 11, 2000* We were informed this morning that Foreign Minister Paek would not be able to attend the UN General
Assembly session. We were told that this was for "unavoidable reasons," but not provided any further details.
However, the North Koreans did assure us that this development would not have a negative effect on the ongoing
US-North Korean dialogue, and we have no indication from the North Koreans that Foreign Minister Paek's travel
plans are in any way connected with the events at Frankfurt Airport. We are currently working through the New York channel to schedule another round of missile talks with the North
Koreans. The last round took place in Kuala Lumpur on July 10-12, and we hope the next round will take place soon.

April 24, 2000
*Russia-Iran Missile Issues* The Russian Ministry of Education has concluded a special investigation of the Rector of the Baltic State
Technical University (BSTU), Yuri Savel'ev, for involvement in the transfer of sensitive technology to Iran.
The Rector is believed to have violated Russian export controls and attempted to export goods or services that
could contribute to missiles capable of delivering weapons of mass destruction (WMD). The investigation revealed
a number of violations of procedures for *
enrolling foreign students* and resulted in administrative action against the Rector and cancellation of
specialized courses for Iranian students and training of Iranian specialists at BSTU. The Russian government's decision to take action against the Rector of BSTU demonstrates Russia's commitment to stopping the flow of sensitive technologies to Iran and underscores the importance of continued U.S.-Russian cooperation in combating the threat posed by Iran's aggressive pursuit of WMD and their delivery systems. http://secretary.state.gov/www/briefings/statements/2000/ps000424.html Deputy Secretary of State *Richard L. Armitage*, accompanied by Assistant Secretary for European
and Eurasian Affairs Beth Jones, will travel to Ankara, Turkey on September 18.
He will call on Prime Minister Bulent Ecevit, meet with Minister of Foreign Affairs Ismail Cem and hold a
series of working meetings with other senior Turkish officials. The purpose of his visit is to have consultations
with Turkey, a close friend and ally.

HONG KONG, China -- The U.S. Navy has held an unusually large exercise in the South China Sea, three days before
sending a battle group into Hong Kong for a routine port call. There was no immediate response from the Chinese government to the Friday drill by two U.S. aircraft carrier
battle groups, described by the U.S. Navy as a "rare meeting at sea."
But one defense analyst told The Associated Press on Saturday that it was a show of force to China. Although Beijing claims the entire South China Sea as its territory and has garrisoned several islands,
the United
States and other major powers do not recognize the region as Chinese territory.
Other Asian countries -- including Taiwan, Malaysia, Vietnam, the Philippines and Brunei -- also have territorial
claims in the area.
he operation, which involved tests of complex air traffic control procedures and ship maneuvering was conducted
amid an ongoing, large-scale
Chinese military drill off its southeast coast opposite Taiwan.
The U.S. Navy spokesman, however, denied the drill was intended as a display of force
in response to the Chinese
war games. January 16, 2001 Philippines, US to Hold Joint Air Exercise

*Chinese 'Civilian' Satellite a Spy Tool*
By Bill Gertz
Washington Times, *Aug. 1, 2001*
China's military has deployed a new reconnaissance satellite that is being used to target
U.S. forces in the region, according to U.S. intelligence officials
The satellite is Beijing's first high-resolution imaging satellite and is disguised as a
civilian
earth monitoring system, said officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
Contrary to officially announced civilian missions, this spacecraft is
actually a high-resolution imagery satellite that is producing images of military targets
in the areas surrounding China," the official said.

China Tests Missile in War-Game Finale By Bill Gertz Washington Times, Aug.24, 2001 Chinese military forces carried out a flight test of a medium-range nuclear missile this
week as the finale to China's largest nationwide war games in years,
The Washington Times has learned.
China also practiced carrying out *computer attacks and defenses* against such attacks
during one part of the exercises, defense officials said.
Just because the CSS-2 is old doesn't mean it doesn't pose a threat to the United States or
Taiwan," he said.

Agence France Presse, Mar. 29, 2001 WASHINGTON --* China is developing cyberwarfare* capabilities that could put at risk the *computer networks
that the U.S. military increasingly relies on for its operations,* the general
responsible for U.S. military space and cyberwarfare programs warned Thursday.
Air Force General Ralph Eberhart, who heads the US Space Command, said although
Beijing's intentions are unclear, the U.S. military is concerned about its focus on
developing the means to carry out computer network attack.

But the reliance both on space and on computers to open up new vistas for battlefield
commanders also has created vulnerabilities that US strategists believe will be exploited
by potential adversaries.
*Such a scenario was examined in a wargame earlier this year* that explored whether
a notional space force in 2017 could deter a conventional invasion by taking out an adversary's

"eyes and ears" in space. http://taiwansecurity.org/AFP/2001/AFP-032901.htm

"China Explores Ways to Defeat Superior U.S. Forces In Fight
'Weapons' Include Computer Viruses, Market Manipulation"
By David Wood
San Francisco Chronicle, Apr. 20, 2001
According to a State Department report last year, for example,
China is already developing offensive information warfare tactics to attack economic,
logistics and military command systems. Rather than confronting the enemy head-on with traditional military weapons,
the Chinese study imagines instigating a financial crisis in the stock market,
then burying a computer virus in the financial transaction network,
taking down an electric grid and telephone communications network,
and paralyzing the mass media. http://taiwansecurity.org/News/2001/SFC-042001.htm And for those really board... Autumn 2001,
An Evitable War: Engaged Containment and the US-China Balance

HENRY H. SHELTON
Near-term demands on our limited manpower necessarily compete with the need to educate our future leaders. Simply acknowledging the importance of education is not sufficient. Education must be kept a priority, and it must remain relevant to our long-term objectives, as spelled out in Joint Vision 2020.

Strategic response times are much shorter. The availability of news from cable, satellite, the internet, and other media compresses the time between finding out about events and the demand to "do something." The requirements for rapid-response capabilities are clear.

We can expect more failed states, as people struggle for independence, for political legitimacy, and for economic and resource advantages in climates of violence, repression, and deprivation. We can also expect an increased role for non-state actors. Deterrence against these threats is difficult. Our ability to find peaceful alternatives to the use of force will be severely taxed.

The availability of technologies to potential adversaries is expanding, to include missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles armed with conventional, chemical, biological, and other weapons. As deterrence and arms control become more problematic, we need to aggressively explore systems to defeat these threats.

The range and types of conflict will expand. As the diversity of threats increases, so too will the complexity of military tasks. We can expect asymmetric attacks, anti-access strategies, and information warfare designed to take advantage of our perceived weaknesses and to prevent the United States from deploying forces. Future adversaries may also try to stay below the threshold of clear aggression, further complicating appropriate response options. When you combine these factors with the very real potential for high-intensity regional conflict, or even direct threats to our homeland, it is reasonable to conclude that our future joint force commanders will face some enormous challenges.

The focus of study and innovation during the interwar period was influenced primarily by the lessons of World War I, including mass mobilization for war, the avoidance of trench warfare, and the integration of emerging technologies such as the airplane and the tank.[3] Both the War and Navy Departments, aided by the students and faculties at the War and Naval Colleges, also studied possible future threats to America's security. They were especially concerned about Japanese threats to US possessions in the Pacific, to Southeast Asian natural resources, and to the vital shipping lanes in the Pacific. Beginning in 1923-24, presaging the Goldwater-Nichols era of joint emphasis, the Army and Navy War Colleges assisted the Joint Army-Navy Board during a continuous series of war games based on War Plan Orange, the contingency plan for war with Japan.

This led to further study and analysis by the future leaders of World War II as they contemplated inventive approaches to address potential threat scenarios. One of the most important examples of how leader development supports innovation was the Navy's emphasis on creating an effective aircraft carrier force that would extend the range and mobility of combat aviation. The Naval War College played a pivotal role in this effort.[4] Under the prescient leadership of Rear Admiral William S. Sims, the Naval War College conducted a series of strategic and tactical war games that underscored the immense potential of the aircraft carrier. Simultaneously, these games provided critical leader development for naval officers in the tactical decisionmaking process.[5]

The Marine Corps, driven by the requirement to provide bases to support naval movements across the Pacific Ocean, seized upon the idea of amphibious assault. Students at the Marine Staff College also played a vital role in the development of this important doctrine, conceived in the early 1920s by Major Earl Ellis. Despite its limited size and budget, the Marine Corps was able to experiment with amphibious operations in the mid-1920s and again from the late 1930s through the beginning of World War II.
