Main Opnions

From the Kosovo war, Zhang thought of the influence of the world military technology revolution on China's future security. In his view, because of the scientific and technological revolution, the war mode has completed the three-dimensional transformation from land power to sea power and then to air power. The main factors that determine the victory or defeat of a war in the new century were not the number and combat capability of a country's army, but the high-tech content of its navy and air force and the resulting combat capability. Who has mastered outer space and then deep sea domain monitoring technology, who controled the air and sea power in the low-level space, that was who controled the initiative of the war. Therefore, he proposed that "China must quickly adjust the current national defense model which focuses on local defense to the national defense model which focuses on sea power and air power. Otherwise, we cannot ensure that China will remain invincible in the international political struggle in the 21st century. "


Zhang Wenmu didn't know when he was called "the hawk of Chinese academic circle" by foreign countries. When Zhang wenmu declared in the media in 2000 that "the big country comes out of the gun", the voice of "the hawk Zhang Wenmu" became more and more popular abroad.

In order to publish his opinions more completely, he also stressed that China should first make military preparations, and any dialogue and negotiation should be backed by strength. And power was first and foremost military power. We must not wait for the "large-scale invasion of the enemy" before making military preparations.
