During the Cold War period, under the rival pressures from both America and Russia, South East Asia developed ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) to fight against the Communism at the time by the collective security mode.
The safety of the district of East South Asia was guaranteed from the military cooperation with America. However, in the Post Cold War period, since America drew out from East South Asia, the countries of ASEAN had faced the trial of safety. They tried their best to draw big and strong countries in this district to be their sides, in order to protect the safety of East South Asia.
After the 911 Issue took place, there was another change in the position of the district. The U.S. opened the Second Battlefield on Terrorism in East South Asia, promoting the cooperated opportunities with ASEAN. The main goal of the cooperation was to defeat the Terrorism and terrorists thoroughly. Under this goal, the U.S. and ASEAN proceeded some military cooperation, and drew military forces into this district. However, some countries from ASEAN are against this action, which America took in the name of war on terrorism. They are of the opinion that it would probably effect the leading role of ASEAN in this district. With the rising force of China, ASEAN is in between the both pressure of the U.S. and China, it is definitely a very important direction to find out the ways to gain a brand new cooperating mode from using the advantages and disadvantages in this regard.
This article discusses from few aspects as below: Firstly, it discusses the points of ASEAN’s security and the changing global strategies of America, try to understand the changes of cooperating since the Cold War period. Secondly, it figures out the methods ASEAN should use to cooperate with the U.S. no matter in the level of district or each nation since the happening of “911 Issue” and the policy on Terrorism. Thirdly, the discussion associates with the rising of China forces. How does ASEAN use such position to level up its own leading status in this area and create a latest cooperating mode in Southeast Asia? The last but not the least, I make a forecast about the cooperating mode in the base of the effects that resulted from Obama’s latest strategies on Terrorism.
