The Wall Street Journal reports Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel's call for a new model in relations with Beijing's military swiftly ran into headwinds Tuesday as China's defense minister castigated the U.S. and its Asian allies in a stark reminder of the differences dividing the two countries. Standing side-by-side during Hagel's first official trip to Beijing since he became defense secretary a year ago, the two men traded pointed barbs over their countries' ambitions in the region as their news conference turned into near-acrimony. China "can never be contained," Chinese Defense Minister Chang Wanquan declared. Over the course of an hour, Gen. Chang slammed Japan, the Philippines, Taiwan and the U.S. for various measures he said undercut stability. And he pushed back against America's plans to shift more military resources to the region—a move widely seen in Beijing as an attempt to contain China's projection of power.
