On September 16, 2021, China suddenly
filed an application for membership in
(TPP = Trans-Pacific Partnership
Why did China apply for membership in
the TPP at this time?
As is well known, there are a number of
strict regulations (rules) for joining the
TPP, and in the current state of China,
it is almost impossible to join the TPP.
The problem here is that despite China
knew the fact that it was almost
impossible to join the TPP, they have
decided to apply.
In that background, did something
significant event or change happen for
Where is the true intention of China?
From that respect, unraveling the
international situation in 2022.
In the “Excerpt” of today’s Article,
I will post everything from the
“Question to the Answer” mentioned
above. However, the excerpt is still
part of the content of the book.
As mentioned above, TPP has a number of
rules that make it difficult for China to join
and even though they know that it is unlikely
that it will be able to join the TPP, why did
China apply now?
And why did China do that at this time?
There are many views in the world on it.
One of the views is
“The reason China has applied for
membership in the TPP is that they have
applied in order to counter several western
Military Alliances centered on the United
States that are increasing pressure on
China’s military buildup in recent years.”
The Military Alliance centered on the
United States refers to AUKUS
(The three-country military alliance of the
United States, the United Kingdom, and
Australia) and QUAD (The four-country
strategic talks of Japan, the United States,
India, and Australia). Both are Alliances
established to ensure the security of the
“China, which is concerned about the
formation of such a military siege against
China, has applied for membership in the
TPP in order to divide those Military
Alliances.” — That is the view.
There is also a view that “China has
indicated its intention to join the TPP
as a stepping stone to establish Leadership
in the Asia-Pacific region.”
Currently, the United States is not
a member of the TPP, so if China joins,
China could take the economic initiative
in this region.
And in the future, it can serve as a
shield of defense against “The Military
Alliances of the Western countries
surrounding China” as described above.
I disagree with the reason that China
applied for membership in the TPP in
the Asia-Pacific region with the intention
to “divide” Western countries’ Dialogues
Perhaps I don’t think China originally had
the intention of “Dividing.”
Or, I’m also negative about the intention
to establish military and economic
leadership in the Asia-Pacific region.
Given China’s mighty economic and
military power, it may be unavoidable for
neighboring countries to interpret it as
“There was such an intention” as a result.
But even if there was, I think that is not
the main reason why China has decided
to apply for membership in the TPP this
As another view, there is the view that
“China applied for membership in the
TPP with Taiwan in mind.”
Indeed, there is the fact that China is
currently pushing towards the achievement
of “One China,” which states that “China
and Taiwan are one nation.”
However, I think that Taiwan’s problem has
nothing to do with the reason why China
applied for membership in the TPP this
Recently, “One China” and “Taiwan Issue”
have rapidly come up to the forefront.
However, this is because, immediately after
China applied for membership in the TPP,
Taiwan applied for membership in the TPP.
(After China applied for membership in the
TPP on September 16, Taiwan submitted
an application for membership on
That’s why many Chinese fighter planes
invaded the Air Defense Identification Zone
(ADIZ) over Taiwan, and the confrontation
problem between “Taiwan and China” has
been greatly highlighted.
Before Taiwan applied for membership in
the TPP, China didn’t make much noise on
the Taiwan issue.
Therefore, I believe that China’s application
for membership in the TPP this time, was
not because of the Taiwan issue.
The true intention of China
So what was the real intention of China
applying for membership in the TPP?
First of all, from the above-mentioned
there are many strict rules in the TPP,
so it is clear that China cannot to join
the TPP in the current state.
Even though China knew that fact, China
applied for membership.
I think that means that there had been even
more important things for China than
“whether or not they can join.“
What on earth is that?
In conclusion, I think that was one point
that “They wanted to create a clue to
build a strong cooperative relationship
with Western countries.“
China needed some medium to show their will
– the will of wishes to build partnerships – to
countries in the Asia-Pacific region including
the United States.
It happened there, that there was a
convenient framework of “Economic
Partnership Agreement” called the TPP.
However, for China, it did not have to be
Any other agreement, treaty, anything was
fine for China, if there is a medium that can
express the intention that “They want to
build a strong cooperative relationship
with Western countries now.”
They probably thought as follows:
If China makes the manifestation of intention
in the form of “Application for membership in
the TPP” now, even if they couldn’t join now,
it could be a strong stepping stone (foundation),
when they build a strong partnership with the
Western world someday.
Also, if they apply it now, they can request
or consult in the future, with current TPP
member countries with the subject
“Wishing on cooperation with China.”
And, while discussing them, they will be
able to build strong bonds and relationships
of trust with each country.
China would have expected that possibility
So why come at this time now, did China
suddenly need to build a strong partnership
with countries in the Asia-Pacific region?
Simply put, it is because the possibility of
that Mainland China could be attacked from
behind, has increased rapidly at this time.
Where on earth does that “Attack from
behind” mean an attack from?
It is a threat from a vast region from the
Middle East to India, Southeast Asia and
Africa, including Afghanistan.
As we all know, the US military withdrew
completely from Afghanistan on August 31,
2021 this year.
This event, in fact, changed today’s
international situation into another world
China has so far maintained good
diplomatic relations with the Taliban
administration in Afghanistan after
the US military left.
The Chinese government has provided
3 million doses of coronavirus vaccine,
pledged financial support, and has been
announcing support to the Taliban
administration in Afghanistan one after
However, while developing such friendly
diplomacy, China is also carefully preparing
On September 10, a large Chinese military
transport plane landed at a military base in
Orenburg Oblast, southern Russia.
This is in order to participate in a
Joint Military Exercise by eight SCO
member countries centered on
Russia and China.
China has sent 558 Elite Troops and
130 Military Vehicles.
The purpose of the joint military exercise
is only one, A Future Counter-Terrorism
However, China today does not have the
Remaining Capacity to send troops to
rule Afghanistan like the United States
and the former Soviet Union.
While China develops friendly and
supportive diplomacy against the
Taliban administration in Afghanistan,
they must minimize the impact in the
event of an emergency on the other
To that end, military preparedness
and preparation are essential.
If a densely populated country like
China is attacked by a terrorist
organization, even with the mighty
military power of China, great damage
will be expected.
They will think:
“These terrorist organizations are
organizations that the US military could
not eradicate even with huge war costs
and troops. No matter how powerful the
army is in China, Chinese leaders will
wonder if China could win against these
The US military has spent $ 500 billion
on the Iraq War and the rule of
Afghanistan in the first five years since
the start of the Iraq War in 2003.
It also resulted in the casualties of
thousands of American soldiers.
Since then, even greater war costs have
been incurred until the withdrawal of
all US troops from Afghanistan on
August 31, 2021.
Still, all extremist organizations could
not be eradicated.
“If we are attacked and became fighting,
China will not lose, but how far can it
protect the land that is continuous and
densely populated? “
“What is certain is that there will be many
In addition, if there are casualties,
the situation may loosen the foundation
of the administration.
In the minds of Chinese leaders, this kind
of thing may continuously being asked.
The Chinese government is ostensibly
insisting that they are maintaining good
diplomatic relations with the Taliban
administration. But now it’s good, however
its unknown what will happen in the future.
Not limited to the Taliban Administration,
what the current Administration of China is
in mind, is a deep suspicion, distrust, and
fear of human nature itself.
In their long history of the past, Chinese
people have received tragic aggressions
many times and had bitter experiences.
So they’ll be able to understand intuitively.
China is the nation with a long history that
is nearly twice that of Japan.
If human – powerful people – gain the power,
and the situation changes, man may invade
other nations by abandoning even tightly
signed interstate treaties and friendship
treaties very easily and unilaterally.
They know that empirically.
Now, what does China and Russia think
about in the face of the vast area after
the US military has left?
Let’s think about it.
Face of the Taliban administration
Now, let’s take a look at face of the
Taliban administration, which took
control of Afghanistan after the
withdrawal of US troops.
On September 7, Taliban administration
spokesman Zabifra Mujahid announced
the appearance of Taliban interim
The Taliban administration has so far
announced that it will “strive to establish
a comprehensive government that
represents everyone in Afghanistan.”
A comprehensive government means
establishing a government that recognizes
the human rights of many people, including
But far from being comprehensive, it was
an exclusive personnel affair that only
accepted the Taliban.
It is unclear what will happen in the future.
For example, the face of Mr. Shirajudin
Haqqani, who was appointed Minister of
the Interior, is used in the wanted poster of
the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI),
which announced a $ 5 million bounty.
In addition, the strong Taliban rulers of the
1990s are returning as executives in the
administration, having their thick beards.

A US Southern Command containment
camp located at Guantanamo Bay Naval
Base in Cuba. It was established in 2002
during the Bush Administration. During
the war in Afghanistan and the war in Iraq,
those suspected of being involved in
terrorism or having any information by
the U.S. military have been forcibly taken
here and numerous have been detained.
However, it has been criticized for being
an illegal detention that violates the
“Fourteenth Amendment to the United
States Constitution,” which provides for
the improper process of law, and the Cuban
government is demanding the return of the
Remarks of Mark Milley, Chairman
of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, at the
At a hearing of the US Senate on
September 28, Mark Milley, Chairman
of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, commented
on the future situation in Afghanistan:
“The Taliban was and still is a terrorist
organization and has not yet declined
its relationship with the extremist
organization Al Qaeda.”
“The rallying of al-Qaeda and ISIS (Islamic
State Group) who want to attack the
United States is a fairly realistic possibility.
In ungoverned areas, their conditions for
activity may be met (formed) within the
next 12 months to 3 years.“
After the U.S. military withdrew from
Afghanistan, such a tense situation
continues from Afghanistan to the
Middle East and Africa.
Under such circumstances, I believe
that the strongest and best way China
has chosen to defend their territory was
to build strong partnerships with countries
in the Asia-Pacific region.
That’s why China came at this time,
rushed to apply for membership in the
I believe that China knew that building
strong partnerships with countries in
the Asia-Pacific region was
“The Strongest Security.”
I think Chinese leaders have learned
such wisdom from the lessons of their
From this point of view, China now is
far from a threat for the United States,
Japan and Australia, it can be said its
a great time of opportunity to build true
China is currently carrying a large
baggage, “They must defend the behind
of the Chinese continent.”
Therefore, it can be said that China feels
the need to build partnerships with
countries in the Asia-Pacific region, even
albeit with some concessions.
Therefore, for the United States, Europe,
Japan and Australia, it is a time to speak
up and negotiate with China.
I think that the Chinese side will have
a listening attitude even if they negotiate
with a little bullish.
After the US military withdrew from
Afghanistan, China entered a completely
different world of situations.
However, thinking from these
perspective, it would become the
existence of extremist organizations
that made China strongly aware
of the need to build strong partnerships
with countries in the Asia-Pacific region.
Regarding the extremist organization,
we must never expand this force
excessively in the future.
This is because if they expand the power
like the former Islamic State of ISIS,
there is a risk targeting not only China
but also civilized countries such as
the United States, Europe and Japan.
What the U.S. Army Chairman of the
Joint Chiefs of Staff, Miller, is concerned
above, is also that point.
If that happens, tragic terrorist attacks
can occur in various parts of the world.
War can also occur. A catastrophe
could cover the world again.
But now, the extremist organizations
scattered throughout this region-from
Afghanistan to the Middle East and Africa-
have not yet become such a major force.
So it’s important to keep their power
small, or to suppress their power to
a level that it does not harm the
countries of the world.
Alternatively, it is important to keep
the existence of extremist organizations
down to the extent that they suppress
“the various excessive acts” of China and
other countries in the international
Then, after finishing the role of such
coordination, bringing those forces to
And in those areas as well-from
Afghanistan to the Middle East, Africa-
Peace and Prosperity must come to.
From now on, it is necessary to do such
a thing without using any army nor
modern weapons of high killing ability
To achieve that, we cannot send US
troops to this area again.
If US troops were dispatched to this
area, as in a secondary disaster at
a disaster site, many casualties could
again occur to the inhabitants of this
area and military soldiers.
Also, once the US military has
withdrawn completely, they will not do
that. President Biden has declared that
“The Era of large-scale military operations
to remake another country is over.“
So what should we do?
From now on, it is time to utilize the
power of specialized law in each
specialized field and the Law of Origin,
and deal with the problem by
“The Power of Law.”
Especially, the Law of Origin has the
power to properly position the power of
specialized law in each field, such as
politics, economic and diplomatic law,
or international law, and to make them
