about

The US government currently espouses a strategy of peacetime engagement with the PRC. Both nations declare that peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region are in their national interest. Developing areas where the PRC can play a constructive, responsible role in Asia-Pacific development is a major objective of USPACOM's China engagement program. Special Operations Forces (SOF) have often been in the vanguard of US peacetime military engagement programs. The characteristics, capabilities, and missions of SOF have proven effective in peacetime engagement. Military-to-military contact between SOF and the militaries of Thailand and the Philippines has assisted in preparing those nations for leading roles in the UN mission in East Timor. This study examines the feasibility, acceptability, and suitability of a SOF engagement program with the PRC. Application of the "FAS test" is often used to determine the soundness of proposed courses of action and may also provide insight into how a SOF engagement program with China can be implemented. Global economics is pushing the US and PRC closer together. Common problems and interests are emerging within the region. There may be opportunities for the PLA and US forces to work together, for the common interest of both nations.
