EurAsian Times: Anti-China Pact Forms in Asia-Pacific

44

After India and Japan signed a military logistics pact, a similar agreement between New Delhi and France and Australia is under development. These intercontinental military alliances have one common goal - to challenge the growing threat from China.


This is how the EurAsian Times writes about the agreements.

While none of the treaties explicitly mention the specific country against which they are directed, the signatories speak of growing challenges in the Asia-Pacific region and China's growing ambitions.

After many years of negotiations between India and Japan, the parties signed a landmark agreement that will allow the ships of the two countries to use each other's naval bases and facilities for repair and replenishment, and will also contribute to expanding cooperation in other areas.

The strengthening of the People's Liberation Army of China (PLA) and its activation in the area of ​​the Senkaku Islands, which are simultaneously claimed by Japan and the PRC, and in the Ladakh province on the Indian-Chinese border are noted. Against this background, the representative of the Indian Ministry of Defense Ajay Kumar and the Japanese ambassador Suzuki Satoshi signed a pact providing for close cooperation between the two countries.

Similar agreements were signed earlier with Australia and the United States, which turns the bilateral pact into a quadripartite one. In addition, the France-Australia-India agreement may be added to the anti-Chinese alliance.

    This is to be expected ... on the one hand, China has territorial disputes with neighboring states ... on the other, the purposeful activity of the United States through the governments of many countries of the Asia-Pacific region to create an environment for confrontation with China ... diverting its forces to border and regional showdowns ...

      The stronger the country, the more it will play a role in international politics, and the more opposition it will face.
      What's so surprising.
      What is surprising is that these processes did not start earlier.

        What is surprising is that these processes did not start earlier.

        Earlier, the PRC was included in the coalition against the USSR and received its piece of the pie in the world economy. The USSR fell, the West feasted, celebrating the fall of the USSR, plundering it and taking the lands and countries of Central Europe. The 4th Reich - EU was formed on the ruins of the USSR. A lot of resources, including human and raw materials, and production was even more thrown off by the Chinese. But when the hangover passed, when Russia freed itself from external control, put in order the strategic nuclear forces and became invulnerable, defended the Caucasus, stabilized the borders and became self-sufficient, and even seized the Crimea and the Syrian shelf. In general, a monster rose wassat and nothing can be done. Immediately, the freebie in raw materials and resources ended, economic problems climbed, the countries went bankrupt in the EU and the Brexit flight of one of the key countries. Also, the US economy has staggered, there is no way to maintain a high level of the middle class and feed BLM. And then they realized that the trophies were over, and the production went to the PRC. And rightly so, you noticed that the Chinese fell into pride and, having risen economically, encroached on hegemony. Early. Now we need to rebuild the Western economy ... destroyed by the fall of the USSR. As strange as it sounds. A typical example of Wow-Know. Have eaten in reactors, but have profiled the enrichment industry. Returning production just for so long, but through the war against the PRC, to begin with the economic one, it will turn out faster ... The PRC finds itself in the position of Japan before the attack on Pearl Harbor, starts a war and lasts 4 years, does not start, after 4 months the economy will collapse from sanctions. The internal tension of the Chinese has grown, etc. China will die in any case, but it can drag someone ...

          China lived before the United States, and even before Russia.
          And his society is now rigidly structured and highly disciplined, subordinate to the center.
          Fuck who knocks him over until he decays from the inside.

            He did not live, the Jurchens, Chingizids, then the Manchus ruled there. Only in the 20th century did the Han people gain independence. These Han people are not one people, but different tribes, even with languages ​​that are not the same dialect. No cohesion, constant clan struggle. Now the party members have become large owners - billionaires and they shoot representatives of competing clans. The disenfranchised internal migrant workers, former villagers, have reached a critical level of hundreds of millions. China is not self-sufficient in resources; it is critically dependent on oil supplies. He is not self-sufficient in food, he slammed his village to please consumer goods, he even buys rice. China has not finished rearmament, with AUG the first steps, great problems with nuclear submarines and ICBMs. China is not self-sufficient in weapons, it is necessary to buy fighters, aircraft engines, air defense systems, radars, diesel-electric submarines from Russia. The blocking of the Strait of Malacca is fatal to the economy. The embargo is fatal to the economy. The return of Hong Kong led to a destabilization and a near-rebellion population with a Western ideology. The population is concentrated on the coast and in the river valleys with a cascade of dams. Easily destroyed with a small amount of charges. Sichuan earthquake (directional) destroyed the PRC's nuclear and chemical arsenal. They hide the remains in the geometry of the border with the Russian Federation so that American missiles do not cross the territory of the Russian Federation. It won't help much. The Russian Federation and the United States will always agree. The perimeter of the PRC is all hostile because of their dirty tricks. Vietnam is an enemy, there was a war. India is an enemy, there was a war. Japan is the enemy, there was a war. Even the USSR was marked by a blow to the horns. And so on. The forecast for the PRC is unfavorable.

              -China can divide and rule in alliance with some of the former disaffected - we expect a compromise (RF or others) from China. who the compromise will be against - depends on the agreed price

    Well, the Chinese did not think that it would be easy to become a superpower. They are ideal for the role of a horror story in this huge region. Well, you must admit that it is not Sulfur Korea that really scares its taxpayers. But the Chinese will have where to spend their huge profits. On expenses on their Navy. The Americans, as always, are killing a bunch of hares with one shot. Hindus are daring against the Chinese. Well, why should we? Nothing. We are just watching all this. And we will not tear the vests on the chest because of China. At least until the moment if the situation does not escalate to the limit.

      From what? They also know that if they act together with the Empireists against China, let them forget about the products of the RF military-industrial complex .... in alliance with the Empireists, they will pose a threat to us too ...
      Well, why should we? Nothing. We are just watching all this.

      Under this case, it is urgent to modernize and increase the military-industrial complex of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus, the PRC will buy everything from us for the PLA ...
      And we will not tear the vests on the chest because of China.

      That's for sure ... we won't ...
      In January, 1980, when it became known that Soviet troops occupied Afghanistan, US Secretary of Defense Harold Brown urgently arrived in Beijing for a meeting with the Chinese leadership. On the crest of this American-Chinese friendship against the USSR, an idea arose that the Western media immediately dubbed "the union of an eagle and a dragon against a bear." In the same year, the PRC and the USA jointly boycotted the Moscow Olympiad.
      In the United States, they were extremely happy about such a huge “second front” against Moscow and prepared an ambitious program to modernize the Chinese army so that it could stand on equal terms with the armed forces of the USSR. For this, according to the calculations of American military specialists, China needed 8 thousands of new modern tanks, 10 thousands of armored personnel carriers, 25 thousands of heavy trucks, 6 thousands of air strikes and at least 200 modern military aircraft.

    In the near future, we should expect closer cooperation with China in the military sphere. And that's just the beginning. In my opinion, the United States, with its sycophants, does not understand that they themselves are pushing China into our arms. And the further, the more and stronger the cooperation will be.

        Well, they decided to make two countries outcasts in this world, us and them, but it will turn out like in that joke "now I milk fat and take the whole chicken coop". India has its own ambitions and would gladly take the place of China, only the Indians do not understand that then they will become outcasts, and they will not compete with China, they are still warriors. And so they will be used to the fullest. Only we, in my opinion, will have to choose according to military cooperation. To help and arm the enemy of our "friend" is somehow not right.

    I always wrote that in the United States there are many options for countering the PRC in the Asia-Pacific region. But most commentators can not really write anymore except how to bang with a nuclear club. That's who you need to learn diplomacy from and not knock on the podium with a hair dryer and a slipper. If someone is watching By the development of political life in Asia, one can understand that gigimon gave the go-ahead for all actions that are directed against China.

          It is possible and necessary to learn from the enemy, but to learn what the enemy is strong in. I don't see strong diplomacy in the United States. Today, in addition to "gunboat diplomacy", blackmail with sanctions, and the use of its unique financial position (which is a consequence of the Brett Woods system and the collapse of the socialist camp led by the USSR), I do not see any diplomatic sophistication from the United States. They can easily do without them. And Powell with a test tube is not much different from Khrushchev with a boot.

          No need to distort, I asked you about US diplomacy, not Russia.
          Above, I already answered my colleague on the forum, I repeat: modern American diplomacy is nothing supernatural, and in no way is it a role model. The United States' current strength does not rely on diplomacy.
          On the contrary, in the recent past, American diplomacy has suffered several painful defeats. If you want examples, I have them: first failure of force pressure, and then of negotiations with the DPRK, complication of relations with Turkey, failure of the "deal of the century" in the Palestinian-Israeli settlement, failure of the nuclear agreement with Iran, complication of relations with China. The list is incomplete.
          I do not think that such diplomatic "victory" is worth equalizing.
          If you learn from American diplomacy, then the period of the Cold War. But then it is worth learning from the diplomats of the USSR, right up to the late Brezhnev period.

    It is somewhat surprising that some experts are confident that the PRC is indeed striving for world hegemony. I mean hegemony in the form in which the Americans broadcast it. Namely, the dictatorship of the oil dollar through total military superiority. Such a scheme did not resist the Chinese in a hollow. They are manufacturers, not traders of virtual goods and virtual money. As a supplier of cheap goods, they have long been the hegemon in the United States and elsewhere. There will be no these goods, the standard of living in many countries will drop sharply, since you will have to buy your own (which has long been gone, as well as production) expensive.
    At the expense of territorial disputes with India .. Both countries have nuclear weapons. So there won't be a serious fight. With Japan ... they have mattresses behind them. So there will be constant pressure, on the verge of smoke. but nothing more. At least until one of the sides itself backs up.
    I think so..
