India and China: A Himalayan rivalry | The Economist
Solid article. Thoughts USMB?
I don't believe in any hostile relations for the foreseeable future.
Hostile relations at this point would mean diverting money and ressources desperately needed in development-sphere into containment of the other.
They would position a foot for each other to fall over, with none of them benefiting -- only the "Sick men's from West".
Both will trade and seek stability in their region so economic development is not minimized through instability.
We should take every opportunity to create the conditions for a war between India and China, even if that means arming both sides.
China will definitely nuke the living daylights out of India, but India should be able to inflict at least some damage upon China.
A damaged China serves our interests.
Seems you want to start wars throughout most of the world. You'll of course be cheering from the safety of your armchair!
We must not allow China to rise above us.
We should use India to fight China.
I don't give a dam about China's response to India. The Indians never liked us anyway.
Even if India is oblliterated, as long as China is weakened, that is all that matters.
God bless UK and USA. And screw the rest of the world!!!
I like my armchair.
If Indian and China are not run by nuts (and I don't think they are) I doubt that they'll allow these border disputes to turn into serious conflict.
Ultimately they might find themselves at serious odds with each other, but I doubt that the territorial disputes are important enough for those to be the issue.
Its the WORLDS resources, not merely the boarders where China and India (and everybody else, too) will ultimately find themselves at odds with their neighbors.
