After the Cold War,the United States become unique superpower in the world. For ensuring the United States' world position, The United States strengthen to suppress China in American global Security Strategy. In the Asia- Pacific region, the United States suppress China toughly because of American global Security Strategy. Enhancing weapon sales to Taiwan is its typical expression. This kind of "Safe Arrangement " used as the main form has been being an important part of American Security Strategy. Thus in the near and middle future, the United States still will enhance weapon sales to Taiwan, but can't "walk" too far to prevent endangering American national interest; in the long period, there may be a malignant change in American weapon sales to Taiwan. For this, we must have a sober cognition. The United States greatly enhanced the level of American weapon sales to Taiwan after the Cold War, This not only was closely related with American Security Strategy, but also had got huge economic initiative. Under monopoly capital's push, The United States government treated promoting and maintaining the United States' economic interests as one of the three greatest forein strategic pillars for its global hegemony position, and increasingly stressed on the function of the economic factors in the United States forein policy. Because American weapon sales to Taiwan can bring huge profits for American military enterprises, hence this would promote American economic development. Thus under the lure and prompt of sudden huge profits, the United States continuously enlarged weapon sales to Taiwan in the last ten years, and consumedly increased the quantity and quality. American weapon sales to Taiwan is a special performance in ideological conflict between China and the United States, is an important means that the United States realizes westernized and splitted China .In American eyes, Mainland China's political system is inharmonious with it in the U.S.. For realizing capitalism ideology dominating in the world, the United States must evolve China. Therefore, under the influence of the Cold War thought, the United States began to launch "new Cold War" to China insisting socialism in the world , made greatest efforts to support the democratization of Taiwan, strengthened weapon sales to Taiwan,Attempted to affect Mainland China by making use of the "the democratization of Taiwan ", made Taiwan become "most important factor that reform Mainland China finally "for the United States' whole strategy toward China and the world strategy . As a country of "separation of the three powers", American political factors especially Congress influence American policy toward Taiwan to a large extent; The United States is typical nation of the bipartisan system too. The bipartisan politics play an important part in American policy toward Taiwan. These two aspects all affect American weapon sales to Taiwan in different degrees. There are surely American strategic intents of " westernized and divided China" in the back of American weapon sales to Taiwan , the consideration of economic benefits as well. But it also is closely related with Taiwan authorities to split up China, especially the canvass of Taiwan authorities play an important part in American weapon sales to Taiwan. The United States always sells armaments to Taiwan, but it is restricted by some factors in different degree. Especially Chinese government and people resolutely object it, which is a solid city wall. China should think about it in strategy and tactics .In the right replying for it by China, accompanied with Chinese developing in overall strength, China will get to thoroughly resolve it, and get to realize reunification.
