After Cold War, the trend of political multi-polarization, economic regionalization and security regime internationalization is becoming clear. Under these circumstances, every country in the world is now reanalyzing international situation, reorientating its interests and regulating its foreign strategy. Especially, the United States, with the growing up of the Asia-Pacific, has diverted its attention to the east and regulated its Asia-Pacific Strategy for several times. From "Pacific Community" of the Bush Government to the "New Asia-Pacific Strategy" of the Clinton Government and then to George w. Bush's "New Asia Pacific Strategy", the U.S. is effectively participating in Asia-Pacific Affairs, across-the-board to seek leadership in the Asia-Pacific.Since the foundation of ASEAN, the relationship between it and the U.S. has experienced along evolvement process. At first, their relationship is often dominated by the U.S. who places its own interest while ASEAN is in a minor dependent passive position to a large extent.The U.S. regards ASEAN as a key link of its Cold-War Strategy Chan and grasps it firmly, while ASEAN regards the U.S. an important reliance and pins its hope on its military protection.With the build-up of ASEAN's strength, the U.S.'s dominant status has declined daily. Economic interests have substituted security interests to be an important factor of the U.S.'s policy to ASEAN. Because their strategies in the Asia-Pacific are quite different, the bilateral discords and conflicts are increasing continuously. The future relationship between ASEAN and the U.S. cannot be so smooth. On the contrary, it will develop zigzag.
