China-India Conflict Is Far More Dangerous Than US-North Korea One

Tyler Durden's picture

Authored by Adam Garrie via OrientalReview.org,

While the international media remains concerned to the point of being fixated on the US-DPRK (North Korea) stand-off, in terms of sheer firepower, the much more pressing stand-off between China and India holds the potential to be far more destructive.

Indian Nuclear Weapons

While the best intelligence about North Korea’s weapons delivery capabilities indicates that North Korea is in possession of intermediate range ballistic missile systems which are incapable of hitting the US mainland, India’s intermediate range systems are not only more advanced but due to India’s proximity with China, these missiles could easily strike targets within China.

Of course, China has a vastly more equipped army and nuclear capacity, but any war between China and India that would involve the use of intercontinental ballistic missiles would be a world-changing event.

While many have focused on the possibility of a short land-based border war, similar to that which the two countries fought in 1962, due to the rapid advance of both the Chinese and Indian militaries in the decades since 1962, there is every possibility that such a war could escalate quickly.

The Modi Factor

Much is said in the western mainstream media about North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-Un being unpredictable and flippant. This information is largely based on self-fulfilling propaganda rather than actual knowledge of Kim Jong-Un’s thought process and leadership.

While little is actually known about Kim Jong-Un’s long term strategic thinking, India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s modus operandi is all too clear.

Modi’s political programme has resulted in economic stagnation, worsening relations with its two most important neighbours, China and Pakistan and increasing incidents of violence, discrimination and intimidation against India’s large Muslim minority.

With these major failures looming large (however much they are dismissed or rationalised by the ruling BJP), Modi has resorted to an entrenched militant nationalism which has resulted in galvanising the most extreme elements of Modi’s Hindutva base domestically while provoking China by placing Indian troops in territory China claims as its sovereign soil.

Against this background it could be fair to surmise that India’s leadership is less stable than that of North Korea, even when accounting for the differences in India’s size, wealth and global reach vis-à-vis North Korea.

If US leaders have been well known to provoke wars to get a poor domestic political performance or a scandal out of the headlines, one should not surmise that Modi will behave any differently. The fact that a conflict with China whether a military conflict, the ensuring trade conflict for which India is virtually entirely responsible or a combination of both, is manifestly to India’s detriment, seems to be lost on a leadership which is obsessed with short term propaganda victories rather than genuine economic and diplomatic progress.

Actual versus Perceived Chinese Interests

China’s concerns about Indian violations of its sovereignty and moreover with the anti-cooperative attitude that Modi’s government has taken, is a very serious matter for China. China has repeatedly warned that its patience is being tested and that China will not ultimately hesitate to militarily defend itself, even while stating that war is not China’s preferred option.

By contrast, China’s interest in both North and South Korea is one of stability and more importantly, one of peace. China, like Russia, does not want to see the Korean war reignite on its borders. This is why China has taken an even hand on the North Korean issue, one that has surprised those who overestimate China’s relationship with the DPRK, one which throughout most of the second half of the 20th century, was less important than Pyongyang’s relationship with the Soviet Union.

North Korea is on occasion a source of a Chinese headache, but it is the United States which has a lingering geo-strategic ambition to unite Korea under the auspices of a pro-American government. China by contrast would be happy with the status-quo minus weapons tests and military drills on both sides of the 38th parallel.

In respect of India however, China has a deeply specific set of interests which are summarised as follows:

  1. No threats made to China’s territorial integrity
  2. A resentment towards dealing with an Indian government that from the Chinese perspective is needlessly hostile
  3. A long term goal of cooperation with India in respect of One Belt—One Road
  4. A more intrinsic desire not to see India fall too deeply into the US rather than what Chinese media calls the ‘Asian’ sphere of influence.

Modi would appear to understand China’s perspective which is perversely why his government is doing precisely the opposite of what China wants. India currently has soldiers on Chinese territory in the disputed Doklam/Donglang region. India is attempting to shut China out of Indian markets in such a manner that seeks to paint India as a competitor to China rather than a country whose economic potential is complimentary to that of China. In an all-out trade war with China, India will lose, the only question remains how badly. Thus far Modi’s attitude does not bode well for an honourable second place.

Finally, India’s recent purchase of American weapons that are vastly overpriced via-a-vis their Russia or Chinese equitant is an example of Modi being penny wise and pound foolish. Modi’s relationship with the United States is one where Modi is squandering Indian treasure in order to make an expensive point. Donald Trump himself joked at a press conference with Modi that the American side will try and get the final price higher before India commits to a final sale of weapons.

Conclusion:

India would stand to benefit greatly from doing what Pakistan has been going for years, namely understanding that the old alignments of the Cold War, including the idea of being non-aligned means something very different in 2017 than it did in 1970. The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, Pakistan’s historically good relations with Russia and its refusal to follow US ally Saudi Arabia into an unnecessary conflict with Qatar and by extrapolation with Iran, demonstrates a far-sighted geo-strategic maturity that will ultimately benefit Pakistan greatly.

India has every ability to do with China what Pakistan has done with Russia while not losing its old Cold War friend. Until India realises this, it is fair to say that the flash-points of conflict between Beijing and New Deli are far more worrying and could be far more damaging in the long term than the war of words between Washington and Pyongyang, frightening though it may at times sound.

In-stead of listening to what others say about what is contained within that most-malevolent-of-tomes, you may listen to it, FOR YOURSELVES, and decide, FOR YOURSELVES, whether or not everything that was said in THE PROTOCOLS, and HAS ALREADY COME-TO-PASS, OR IS CURRENTLY OCCURRING, really is as it appears to be, or if it is, as (((the malefactors))) say, all just a grand "forgery", and nothing at all about which to fear, or be concerned...

According to Kalegri, a diverse and multi-cultural people were easy to control as they had no common identity to rally behind in the event of a political crisis. In addition to that, a diverse population would be easy to conquer by the means of divide and rule. The newly arrived immigrants would be pitted against the native people with both sides believing that they were a persecuted minority languishing under a system of law that was rigged against their favour. Since the last world war, the European Union has gradually eroded aspects of national sovereignty for nation states, often making national law subordinate to that decided by unelected figures at the head of the international organisation. There has also been a concerted attempt to chip away at nationalist sentiments and nation-orientated social projects by such policy decisions as freedom of movement as part of the European integration and Angela Merkel’s open door policy towards Syrian refugees.

My point, Folks, is that what you see happening, ON-EVERY-LEVEL, across our planet, is, of course, by-design, but IT IS NOT, NOT, NOT!!!, enough to simply know, and to appreciate, that this macrocsomic-malevolence is "by-design", BUT YOU MUST UNDERSTAND, AND APPRECIATE, WHY THIS IS HAPPENING, and the to do that, ONE MUST, MUST, MUST!!!, KNOW WHO IS DOING THIS.

 

Reality, as it TRULY is, is never so disturbing, as it is when you get near "the-top-of-the-pyramid", and that is why I cut-through-the-bullshit and -the-non-sense, as best as I am able, in my comments.

Well, that did not transfer very well, at all!  

 

Anyway...

 

What I had tried to show you, All, was that the EXACT PARALLEL to what one of the tenets found in (((The Kalergi Plan))), was the elimination of our national-identity, ESPECIALLY WHEN THERE WERE MONUMENTS, AND HEROES, TO EXEMPLIFY OF OUR NATIONAL-IDENTITY!!!  The destruction of our nation's monuments to soldiers, generals, and to CSA leaders, AS WELL AS NATIONAL-HEROES, LIKE WHAT IS INTENDED FOR GENIUS THOMAS JEFFERSON, AND PRESIDENT GENERAL GEORGE WASHINGTON, IS ALL ABOUT DESTROYING OUR HERITAGE, TO MAKE IS THAT MUCH EASIER TO, IN-TIME, GENERATIONS-FROM-NOW, SUBVERT THE ENTIRETY OF OUR NATION'S PEOPLES, AND NOT JUST US WHITES.

 

This, Ladies and Gentlemen, is THE most blatantly-obvious tenet of (((The Kalergi Plan))), that we can see taking-place, now, aside from how mixed-couples are being promoted in EVERY strata-of-society, via (((Hollyweird))), our teLIEvision series, on music-videos, and even in our commercials.

Weird what does Hitler, ISIS and alt-left have in common? They all attempted to destroy the identity of everybody else's cultural history..

The Monument's Men a true story based on  6 men tasked with recovering the stolen artifacts and monuments taken by the Hitler regime in WWII where much of it was found in underground mines..

ISIS while they were not busy banging goats or beheading people could not seem to work quickly enough to blow up the cultural history of Iraq..

And your alt-left who feel that they need to erase all history and identity of what made America America - starting with the General Lee statue while in Canada ironically native communities attack statues to Cornwallis.

Clearly a world wide orchestral movement intentional?

lndia is slowly sinking into dictatorship and corruption
Look at lndian Finance minister who is also defence minister
He is not elected man , only nominated , he controls most of govt(a puppet of west)

hence dictatorship, lndian govt makes indian soldiers work without Air conditioning, their tanks become like ovens , how can u expect to win wars when ur soldier is ill treated, Now even govt is removing rations to military ppl employed in non-war areas

CORRUPTION :
The govt is only trying to do whitewashing on this issue 
(they call it social engineering : the words of Jetley meaning 'fooling the ppl')
corruption happens in many forms, 
(1)when people are recruited in govt out of the way, either money
is transferred or nepotism occurs 
In many ministries of govt , huge nepotism is going on
especially in govt run companies (public sector)65 73 70 65 63 69 61 6c 6c 79 20 69 6e 20 6f 69 6c 20 26 20 77 61 74 65 72 20 6d 69 6e 69 73 74 72 69 65 73 20 26 20 74 68 65 69 72 20 70 75 62 6c 69 63 20 73 65 63 74 6f 72 
The ministries have huge influence over public sector
so right from top to even peons(mabbe ministers too) they 
employ their near & dear ones in govt sector  
who work as puppets helping these entities to do whatever they what
and they report rosy picture to govt which remains oblivious
with eyes closed, while generations are getting employed
from father to sons & daughters  & then mabbe the next generation
(2) These govt entities are trying deliberately to make loss making 
as in Air India airlines by giving free benefits (again to near & dear ones)
(3) They offload huge works to outside private
(again to near & dear ones)
 making it look like normal business
(4) They are privatizing public utilities services 
like power etc , privatization runs on loss (in public space)
The privatized work is shown with artificially inflated 
huge expenditures or losses and then making the govt or public pay
huge money. And the govt refuses to audit these companies

(5) The top ppl of army , navy & air force are regularly exposed for corruption , many of the chiefs in past simply give all secrets to enemy or to west and then retire t go to western countries (they dont make enough money to afford to live in west)

So no mention at all of China's incursion into disputed territory in Bhutan ? How they refused to maintain the status quo and decided to build a road on disputed territory once again ? How their state-run media is trying to demonize India as the aggressor instead ? Ok then.

They built a road in disputed territory in Kashmir, they took Tibet by force and labelled a monk as a terrorist, they backed rogue nations like NK and Pakistan to serve their own interests along with providing Nuclear weapons technology, they have unreasonable territorial claims in the South China Sea, they constantly put incompetent, desperate and corrupt governments into debt traps under the pretense of friendship and development, they have no freedom of press, they produce and ship fentanyl on an industrial scale, they harvest organs from prisoners, they've already put draconian measures in place to monitor its citizens both offline and online, they block and stall Indian efforts in the UN to designate Pakistan based Hafeez Saeed who was responsible for the '08 attacks in Mumbai as a terrorist.

Clearly a biased article with an agenda, no mention of their debt or the housing bubble and mainly their imperialist expansionist tendencies. No mention of the internal strife in the CCP or how Xi wants to appear as a strong decisive leader before the 19th National Congress of the CCP in November this year.

Their unelected President likes to call himself the core leader of a party that was responsible for millions of deaths of Chinese people, it's pretty clear the dragon died at Tiananmen, the current China is nothing but a pile of 88 million dog-eating lizards.

Before you jump to any conclusions whether this is another banker backed conspiracy, know that the Chinese took advantage of the poor leadership and preparation and launched an attack in 1962 so we know they cannot be trusted. The disputed land in question has no other importance than to provide a strategic advantage in a potential future conflict because it lies in close proximity to the narrow stretch of land that connects mainland India to its northeastern states which the Chinese can cut off effortlessly if they're allowed to make moves now.

India is no paradise but China is well on its way to become another bully just like the USA.

P.S. Both nations know a war would be devastating, there are diplomatic channels working towards resolving this minor conflict, both sides have problems that need a diversion and scapegoat to blame it on but neither wants to be perceived as weak either. If India makes a stand to Chinese aggression other smaller nations in the vicinity might learn a thing or two, so far the Chinese have been successfully able to bully others. China hasn't been able to do much here because they're in the wrong and India has shown restraint and hasn't escalated the situation or responded to their juvenile rhetoric in state run media. There's only one of two ways this will play out, the Chinese will try to enter and occupy some other Indian region like they tried yesterday, they'll then demand a mutual retreat of forces in both areas to save face, that or it will remain a stalemate and both sides will be forced to retreat once winter hits the region in Oct-Nov.

China (or any other nation) is a bully when it can be a bully. So what if you like China or have money invested in China. I feel sorry for anyone who has money invested in China or India. Russia is still ok for investing but I wouldn't have anything over three years. Maybe two.

A secret to knowing when to get in or get out. Search for European multinationals closing or moving manufacturing around. This information is sometimes hard to get but is a good tell. When they shift some products back to a home country and transfer regional products to the region they sell it in then it is time to get capital out of that region. They are of course just upgrading or modernizing. :-)

Modi creates enough problem in his own country. He has the Muslims and Christians against him. He folllows orders. Now where is demementisation of 86%   currency done- hawala he made- thats why he cannot account for the notes. He extends the Aadhar card to all including those who have bank accounts besides dead bodies.He subscribes to the the theory that Rs1 lakh set in 1993 as the guarantee money is not changed. He wants a cashless society with no one but him having cash. And so on  endlesss  Modi is the worst thing to ever happen to India .
