China Flexes Its Muscles - WSJ.com
JANUARY 2, 2008 |Wall Street Journal | by GORDON G. CHANG.
Deng Xiaoping believed that the country should "bide time" and keep a
low profile in international affairs. Deng's successor, Jiang Zemin,
followed this general approach. Current President Hu Jintao has shifted
China in a new direction, restructuring the international system to be
more to Beijing's liking. The belief is that Beijing has embarked on a
path of high-profile force projection, possibly in areas "way beyond the
Taiwan Strait."
