ABSTRACT

China and the Terror War   [open pdf - 92KB]

This Naval War College Point Paper was prepared in response to the terrorist attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001. The Naval War College commissioned more than thirty papers addressing strategy and policy, operational concepts, and national security decision making related to the terror war. These papers were intended as contributions to U.S. national security policy deliberations, and to assist the U.S. Navy as it planned its response to future terrorist threats. The purpose of this Point Paper was "to assess China's responses to the terror war and the opportunities for and limitations of U.S.-Chinese collaboration to combat the terrorist threat. It provides a brief background and discusses what explains China's initial reactions to September 11, what the Chinese see as the potential downsides to supporting U.S. policy, and what have been the net gains for both countries of Chinese support for the terror war.
