In a wide-ranging conversation with Mrs Clinton on global hot spots, Mr Rudd:

■ Described himself as ''a brutal realist on China'' and said Australian intelligence agencies kept a close watch on China's military expansion.

■ Said the goal must be to integrate China into the international community, ''while also preparing to deploy force if everything goes wrong.''

■ Said the planned build-up of Australia's navy - later revealed in the May 2009 Defence White Paper to include a dozen attack submarines - was ''a response to China's growing ability to project force''.

This will complicate Mr Rudd's already testy personal links with China after his reported reference to Chinese negotiators as ''rat f--kers'' during the Copenhagen climate change conference.

Every western leaders should be realistic as this man on China, or they will, definitely suffer at the end.

Many conservitives accused Rudd government of being too close with the Chinese commies when he was in the office. Certainly most of the Australian Uighurs did so. However, Wikileaks has given them a shock today. The West, especially the US, must rethink it's China policy and should be realistic in this issue as Keven Rudd is. I mean militay force should be considered when the diplomatic pressure becomes useless.

Keven Rudd is the Minister for Foriegn Affairs of Australia now.

Do not be over-optimistic. Wikileaks also revealed that there was a criticism by the former US ambassador for Australia of him for being inexperienced in foreign policy. This criticism sounds pretty much sober and objective on his performance as a former prime minister of Australia.

To be realistic means having deeper understanding of what is going on, but it does not necessarily mean that it may lead to a decisive action against China in accordance with this very understanding. There is a big gap between reality and the possibility of recreating this reality by appealing to force as Rudd suggested. Australia cannot persuade the US to launch a coordinated as well as pre-emptive strike against China for the time being, for that costs a lot for everybody. Nor could the US take such a hasty decision out of blue. In short, the time is yet to ripen for that.

Kevin's suggestion is typically a kind of temerity. What the West needs in term of containing the rising power, China, might be something much subtler than a mere use of force, given that nobody wants to see the clash of the two nuclear powers--a clash that may result in the total destruction of some parts of the whole world. To surrender this super power, the West should ponder all the possibilities that may act against China.
