Re: Neutering & Defanging Chinese Threat (15-11-2017)

We don't even have to go that far. We must remind China everyday about its CPEC activities in the Indian state of J&K. We must warn China that these projects located in POK are fair game for India. Setting up an equivalence between Kashmir and Arunachal is rather dangerous...CPEC is fair game f...

If China had been dismissive of India and not paying any attention to it given its poverty - that indeed would have been good for India!

China wouldn't be consorting and actively propping up a dead-beat nation like Pakistan if not for the fairly considerable 'attention' it has been paying to blocking India over the decades

If anything - they have been paying far more attention to India's rise than most Indians do

If accepting 'Chinese domination' refers to Chinese domination in trade, business, science and technology - then it does makes sense! You can rest assured, Indians have no problem at all in accepting Chinese domination on these fronts and Modi and team are absolutely unlikely to do anything about it.
