Since the world enters the 21th century, great changes have taken place in international community—the development of USSR areas have attracted more and more attentions all over the world. In the wake of the "Rose Revolution" at Georgia in 2003 and the "Orange Revolution" at Ukraine in 2004, the tide of "Color Revolution" has swept across the central Asian nations, most of which suffered a great loss. Kirghizstan as well as Uzbekistan experienced kinds of turbulence, with the former's abnormal regime change. During the process, China, USA and Russia all declared respective position on the issue, reflecting big powers intention to exert their influence on this key area.Central Asia plays a great strategic role in those three big powers' agenda, thus leading to a fierce competition in this area. Actually, central Asian nations'internal problems act as the decisive factor in the so-called "Color Revolution". However, considering central Asia's geopolitical feature as well as their specific development stage, relevant big powers indeed played a key role during the regional turbulence, especially the game between USA and Russia. To some extent, the "Color Revolution" which happened in USSR areas served as works of America-leading western worlds'democratic strategy.The "Color Revolution" also made a great influence on China's central Asia strategy. As a pivot point in China's Anti-terrorism cause, an important strategic backside and a point of energy resources growth, central Asia means a lot to China's grand strategy. China must work with this area to crack down on "east Turkestan", reduce regional conflicts and protect its energy interests. Faced with sorts of challenges brought by the "Color Revolution" in central Asia, China should address the issue rationally and comprehensively, as a result, China should handle properly three pairs of relationships:China and central Asian nations; China and relevant big powers especially USA and Russia; its internal social development and external strategic policies.To sum up, whether conducting analysis from the aspect of China's national security or from China's diplomatic strategy, to promote its comprehensive national strength is the NO.1 task to deal with various "Color Revolutions" or other similar movements; only by strengthening both its hard power and soft power can China well control over its world-widening interests in this age of rapid change.
