China Should Send Troops to Fight ISIS

From: China Should Send Troops to Fight ISIS

Fighting ISIS has multiple benefits for China; Beijing should seize on this rare opportunity...

First and foremost, it is in China’s security interest to destroy ISIS, which is already a threat to China’s national security and could become a very serious threat if it gains more power and influence....

A second reason for China to send its troops to fight ISIS is the invaluable combat experience that Chinese military can gain in doing so....

The third benefit for China is that joining the fight against ISIS would engage it more deeply in the Middle East....

The fourth benefit is that fighting ISIS is good for China’s leadership role and global image....

Last but not least, fighting ISIS can improve U.S.-China relations, particularly in a time when tensions are rising in this relationship....

In the end, whether or not to it will send troops overseas to fight ISIS will be a tough decision for Chinese leaders to make, particularly given the complexity of the situation. A good balance needs to be maintained between sovereignty and humanitarian protection, and there are costs, concerns, and uncertainties for China. Above all, China should recognize that this is one a rare opportunity to flex its military muscles without much (or any) international criticism.

To not seize this opportunity would be a mistake for Chinese foreign policy.
