Re: Neutering & Defanging Chinese Threat (09-08-2014)

^Agreed sir, but how many businessman and Babu's have wherewithal to follow the dreaded path? They can always invoke reciprocal access clause to stop Chinese flooding the market. The issue even with this is that Chinese only open up sectors where they know that they are very strong and no outside w...

The China traders don't care what procedures you create, you give them access to market, they will flood, even if you have any number of restrictions. Complete stoppage of China origin anything is the only solution. The problem with the India is that they don't understand China mentality, they are s...

They have done quite well at doklam, but the end game is that China have been wounded, and are looking for revenge. That makes them much more dangerous for India. India didn't finish off the enemy, the game is still on. TK, I agree with your following four assertions: ⋅ China is wounded; ...
