Yetliberal-minded analysts are willing to give China the benefit of the doubt They believe thatgiven the right incentivessuch as the economic benefits of globalisationChina will behave responsibly and become a stakeholder in the existing international order This debate remained inconclusive until about three years ago Partisans on both sides could marshal sufficient evidence to buttress their arguments Howeveras Chinese foreign policy began to grow more assertiveparticularly on territorial disputesrealists who insisted that China would behave like a traditional great power gained greater credibility With the most recent escalation of tensions between China and Japan over the ownership of a group of small uninhabited islands in the East China Seathere is little doubt that advocates of Chinas peaceful rise are losing the debate What makes the latest round of escalations special is the way Beijing chose to challenge Japans sovereignty claims over the Senkaku Islandsas Japan calls them (they are called the Diaoyu in China) To be surethis particular dispute began in 1972when the United States handed over administrative authority (but not legal ownership) to Japan For four decadesChina and Japan had adhered to a tacit agreement over the status of the islands: Japan would retain administrative control and claim sovereigntyand China would contest the sovereignty but not challenge Japans administrative control This understanding broke down in late 2012 when Tokyo was forced to nationalise the islands in order to prevent an extremist right-wing leader from purchasing some of the islands from their private ownersa development the Japanese government thought would lead to a confrontation with Beijing Little did Tokyo realise that Beijing would regard its movehowever well-intentionedas a step tantamount to formally establishing sovereignty claims over the islands As part of its responseBeijing has gradually escalated After repeatedly sending ships and planes into the territorial waters and airspace of the islands to challenge Japanese claims of exclusive administrative controlthe Chinese government took the fateful stepon November 23of announcing its East China Sea Air Defence Identification Zone (ADIZ) Even though sovereign nations are not prohibited by international law to set up ADIZsand more than a dozen countries have done so (including Japan and the US)Chinas ADIZ in the East China Sea overlaps with those of Japan and South Korea Most alarminglyit also covers the airspace over the disputed islands Beijings intentions are crystal clear By setting up an overlapping ADIZ over the disputed islandsit has mounted a legal challenge to Tokyos claims of administrative control Under the rules announced by Beijingall aircraft flying through Chinas ADIZ must communicate their flight plans and identify themselves to the Chinese militarywhich will enforce the ADIZ ObviouslyBeijing views compliance with these rules as recognition of Chinas legal control over the airspace over the islands andby implicationthe islands themselves Beijings escalation has infuriated Tokyowhich promptly announced that it would not recognise Chinas ADIZand instructed its civilian airlines not to comply with Chinas rules Japan also openly challenged China by sending military aircraft through Chinas ADIZ without notifying the Chinese military (South Korea has also dispatched military jets into the Chinese ADIZ) Caught in the middle is the USa treaty ally of Japan Eager to show solidarity with Japan but reluctant to allow the dispute to escalate furtherWashington has opted for a middle course It has flatly rejected Chinas new ADIZ and sent two unarmed B-52s through the Chinese ADIZ almost immediately after Beijings announcement Howeverto avoid potential catastrophic accidents in the zonethe US government has also advised its civilian airlines to comply with the Chinese ADIZ By pure coincidencethe ADIZ controversy occurred right before US Vice President Joseph Bidens scheduled visit to JapanChina and South Korea Judging by the announcements following Bidens stops in Tokyo and Beijingit seems that he has achieved only modest accomplishments in trying to calm the troubled waters in the East China Sea While he managed to reassure Japan of Americas unwavering support and criticised Chinas escalationhe treaded carefully in Beijing and avoided directly challenging Chinas decision by asking top Chinese leaders to rescind its ADIZ All this leaves the troubling impression that China has got away with a tactical move that changed the status quo over a longstanding dispute Observers are worried about three consequences FirstBeijings attempts to enforce the ADIZ in future could result in accidental military clashes with Japanese and US military aircraft in the zonethus starting a conflict no one really wants Similar attempts could also lead to aviation disasters similar to the infamous KAL 007 incident (when a Soviet MiG shot down a South Korean jumbo jet in 1983) Secondencouraged by this precedentChina could set up a similar ADIZ in the South China Seausing the same tactic to assert its maritime claims Thirdemboldened by the lack of a unified response from the international community to its unilateral moveChina might be tempted to flex its muscles even more recklessly in future Of coursethese are all valid concerns But they overlook one important aspect of the Chinese ADIZ controversy The ultimate question to ask is whether China gains or loses more in this case Tacticallywe must concede that Beijings move is brilliant: it is controversialbut not illegal Its new ADIZ should help China achieve its objective of contesting Japans sovereignty claims through clever legal manoeuvres But strategicallywe would find it hard to deny that Beijing has lost more It has not only succeeded in demolishing any lingering hope that Chinas rise could be peacefulbut also pushed Asian nationsbound by their fear of an assertive Chinacloser to each other and to America If Chinese leaders are truly farsightedone has to wonder whether this is their desired outcome The writer is professor of
