Military Review

According to the precepts of the great helmsman

The doctrine of "new internationalism" will allow China to change the balance of power in Asia

At the beginning of this year, a program article titled “China is heading for a“ new internationalism ”appeared on the pages of“ Huanqiu Zhibao ”, a subsidiary of the newspaper of the CPC“ Renmin Zhibao ”newspaper. Its author, Sun Zhu, a senior research fellow at the China Institute of International Relations, emphasized that he was considering this term as a new foreign policy doctrine. In essence, this doctrine is a real tool for interaction between China and the armed Maoist formations, which are increasingly operating in the countries of Southeast Asia and Central Eurasia.

“The essence of the“ new internationalism, ”writes Sun Zhu, is that China must assume greater international responsibility, fulfill even more obligations and strive to direct the development of international order in a fair and rational direction. At the same time, the transition to the policy of “new internationalism” means that in order to protect the common interests of all humanity, the Chinese people are ready to make possible sacrifices. ”

The appearance of such publications in the Chinese press at a time when the level of military-political tensions in the Asia-Pacific region is constantly increasing, cannot be considered an accident.


Just over a year ago, former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger predicted the imminent start of a new world war. The clash between the two strongest superpowers of the 21st century - the United States and China - is only a matter of time. Both potential adversaries are currently at the stage of pre-war alignment of forces, forming their own military-political blocs and alliances. At the same time, ideology is one of the main tools for preparing for a future war. It was in the context of the ideological war that Wang Ywei's recently published article “The Chinese model destroys the hegemony of“ universal human values ​​”published by the press organ of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China" Renmin zhibao ". The author emphasizes: “Modern globalization is essentially the spread to the whole world of the Western system, the Western spiritual and material culture. For China, the only way out is reglobalization. ” Further, the Chinese ideologue deciphers the meaning of the term “reglobalization”: “to form a new universal civilization and, becoming the flagship of the new post-Western era, create the prerequisites for the eternal development of all humanity in the world, where China will be an assistant and mentor to everyone.” Thus, the doctrine of the “new internationalism” is both an ideological and military-political toolkit for the implementation of the counter-globalist strategy developed by Beijing aimed at intercepting world leadership from Washington.

According to the precepts of the great helmsman

The revival of Maoist ideology in the form of the doctrine of the “new internationalism” has good practical grounds. The global economic crisis, which began in 2008, created a very productive ground for a sharp increase in the activity of both political and Maoist armed formations in a number of states, which the PRC views as potential adversaries. In the wake of increasing political and economic instability, the so-called Coordination Committee of Maoist parties and organizations in South Asia declared the declaration as follows: “The Coordination Committee decides to combine its efforts and launch a revolutionary struggle to fan the flames of a prolonged popular war in the region and beyond in conjunction with a long People's War in the Philippines, Peru and Turkey. We announce our principled unity and conscious determination to raise the red banner of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism and communism in all its splendor on the silver peaks of the Himalayas and throughout the region. We accept this responsibility as our international duty and contribution to the destruction of the system of imperialism through a protracted popular war. ” And all this is not an empty threat.

Maoists or terrorists?

28 May 2008, a “democratic” revolution took place in Nepal, as a result of which the Maoists concentrated their power in their hands. Since the time of the Sino-Indian 1962 conflict, this Himalayan country has served as a kind of political buffer between the two great Asian powers. But just two weeks after the Communist Maoist party came to power, in early June 2008, Beijing hosted a meeting with the head of the international relations department of the CPC Central Committee, Wang Jiaguya, with Krishna Mahadara, a member of the secretariat of the Communist Party of Nepal. According to official Xinhua news agency, a representative of the Nepalese Maoists assured the Chinese government that his party firmly supported China’s position on the issue related to Tibet and would never allow any forces to conduct anti-Chinese activities from Nepalese territory. De facto, this meant a sharp shift in the balance of power in the border region in favor of the PRC. 30 April 2011 years in Kathmandu delegation from 15 senior Chinese military, headed by Chief of General Staff of the PLA Chen Bin De, who met with President of Nepal Ram Baran Yadav, Prime Minister of the Maoist government Khanalom, commander of the Nepal Army Chantry Man Singh Gurung and other military leaders. The delegation reported that 30 had allocated RMB million in military aid to the Nepalese Maoist army. At the same time, General Chen Bin De made a demonstrative statement that China would not tolerate third-party interference in friendly Nepalese-Chinese relations. The addressee of this statement was completely obvious.

The success of the Maoists in Nepal caused an immediate aggravation of the situation in the adjacent territories, primarily in Bhutan. Back in February, 2006, at the so-called First National Conference of the Maoist Communist Party of Bhutan, its leaders announced the start of a “popular war” against royal power. Constant internal political instability in yet another “buffer” state - Bangladesh creates optimal conditions for the intensification of the activities of Maoist groups there. This means that China, within the framework of the doctrine of the “new internationalism”, is capable of solving at any necessary moment the task of creating the most important strategic bridgehead in Central Eurasia.

Of particular military and political importance for China is the growing armed Maoist movement in the Philippines. Recall that in April last year, in the area of ​​the Spratly archipelago, there was a large-scale armed incident between Chinese and Philippine warships, after which official Manila entered into a new agreement with the United States to expand the US military presence on its territory. The Philippine military estimates that currently more than a hundred guerrilla fronts of the Maoist New People’s Army (NNA) are operating in 69 from the 80 Philippine provinces. The total number of the NNA reaches 20 of thousands of well-armed militants who have experience in conducting a long guerrilla war. As a graphic example of their combat capabilities, we can recall the successful large-scale attack on the military base of the Philippine army on the island of Mindanao in March 2009.

It should be emphasized that in the jungles of Mindanao there is an even more numerous army of "Islamic rebels" of the Moro tribe, who interact with the NNA fighters. So, 15 of February of this year, the Philippine Islamists landed troops on Malaysian-owned part of Kalimantan Island and declared the captured territory "part of the historic state of Sulu", including the southern part of the Philippines and Kalimantan. It can be assumed that in the course of a future war in the Asia-Pacific region, China will be interested in provoking territorial conflicts between US allies by using Maoist and Islamist gangs to solve this task.

Goal number one

On December 5, 2012, the Chief of the General Staff of the Indian Navy, Admiral Devendra Kumar Joshi, said that if necessary, he was ready to issue an order to send warships to the South China Sea to protect the national interests of his country. At the same time, Admiral Joshi emphasized that China’s buildup of naval power is the main cause for concern for India. According to him, the Indian naval forces are constantly watching the development of Chinese fleet and develop their own strategy options. Recall that the cause of the conflict between India and China was Beijing's claims for oil and gas fields in the South China Sea, which are controlled by Vietnam, and are being developed by the Indian state company Oil and Natural Gas Corp (ONGC). To protect its economic interests, the official New Delhi defiantly announced its intention to send warships to the disputed area. In response to the Indian demarche, the Chinese authorities announced that on January 1, 2013, the Chinese Navy would gain the right to forcibly inspect foreign ships in the South China Sea. Taking into account all the existing Sino-Indian contradictions - territorial, political, economic, it should be noted that a military conflict between the two great Asian powers will occur in the future for the next decade.

Maoist armed forces are quite capable of playing a decisive role in a future war. The Coordinating Committee of the Maoist parties and organizations of South Asia, in its declaration, identified India as the main adversary. The seizure of power by the Maoists in Nepal and the possibility of Maoist revolutions in Bhutan and Bangladesh will potentially create a situation in the strategic ticks of the Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh, which has been the subject of long-standing foreign policy differences between India and the PRC. Possessing such advantageous positions, the PLA can, in a matter of days, seize the entire East Indian territory, known in the terminology of Chinese geopolitical experts under the name of South Tibet (Arunachal Pradesh, Sikkim, Assam, Nagaland) with a single blow to the converging directions.

Bhutan Maoists have long been preparing for war with India, as evidenced by a statement made five years ago by Central Committee member of the Communist Maoist Party of Bhutan comrade Gaurav: “It’s easy to start an armed struggle in Bhutan because its government is very weak. But then we will have to face the military force of India. ” At the same time, the Maoists of Bhutan maintain links with terrorist organizations - the United Front of the Liberation of Assam, the National Democratic Front of Bodoland, the Kamapur Liberation Organization and other armed separatist groups operating in eastern India. Sporadic fighting continues along the perimeter of the borders of the eastern Indian states for almost a decade. For example, in February 2003, Indian troops, along with units of the Royal Bhutanese army, conducted combat operations in border provinces, where Maoist gangs deployed their activities from strongholds in southern Bhutan (a year earlier, overthrown King Gyanendra also sanctioned Indian forces against Maoist insurgents in Nepal).

Of particular danger to India is the interaction of the Nepalese and Bhutanese Maoists with the Naxalite armed formations that are ideologically close to them and which operate in the so-called red corridor, which covers vast territories of north-eastern India.

War in the "red corridor"

24 November 2011 of the year on one of the Maoist websites on the Internet the following message appeared: “Comrade Kishendzhi, a member of the Politburo of the Communist Party of India (Maoist) and the head of military operations of the Partisan Liberation Army, was brutally murdered in West Bengal. This carefully planned execution, before which Comrade Kisendzhi was subjected to cruel torture, is being presented by the Indian government as an accidental murder during an armed clash. In the same way, the cold-blooded murders of comrade Azad and many other Naxalite leaders were previously ignored. The reluctance of the government of India to negotiate and the destruction of members of the leadership of the KPI (Maoist) proves that this is a planned campaign of state terror. ”

The so-called red corridor, where armed Maoist-Naxalit groups operate, stretches from the southern state of Andhra Pradesh to the central state of Chhattisgarh. In general, Maoist gangs operate in 20 from 29 Indian states. Back in 2008, Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh declared them the most serious threat to India’s national security. And this threat is permanently increasing. It is enough to consider only some episodes of military operations of the Naxalites, in order to judge its true scale.

12 July 2009, a squad of Naxalites attacked a police convoy in the state of Chhattisgarh, killing 22 police officers. In total, only in the first six months of 2009 of the year, Maoist militants carried out 1128 armed attacks.

6 on April 2010, in the state of Chhattisgarh, the Naxalites attacked a police unit, and about 60 police were killed during the battle.

27 March 2012, 15 police officers were killed by Maoist militants in the state of Maharashtra in western India.

In the "red corridor" is a full-scale war. Moreover, the Naxalites control a whole range of territories, which their leaders declare "liberated." Thus, in June 2009, the Maoist militants proclaimed the “liberated” vast territory of the Lalgarh district in the Indian state of West Bengal and established their own “revolutionary” authorities there. The situation is aggravated by the hesitant actions of the Indian authorities: to defeat the 25-thousandth army of the Naxalites requires the use of not regular police units, but regular troops, which de facto would mean official recognition of bandit groups as a party to military conflict. For this reason, the armed forces of the Naxalites continue to increase, they set themselves increasingly ambitious tasks. In 2010, the Naxalite warlords openly declared an intention to create a “red corridor” from the borders of Nepal to South India. It can be assumed that in the event of a war with China, Maoist gangs will pave the way for the PLA through the “red corridor” from the Nepal border and will greatly facilitate the invading army to solve the problem of a deep operational breakthrough with cutting the territory of India into two isolated parts.

It should be noted that, through the involvement of the Naxalites, the General Staff of the PLA can count on the collapse of India as a single state. As a factual justification of this argument, we present a fragment from the analytical report that 8 August 2009 of the year was posted on the official website of the Chinese International Institute for Strategic Studies. The author of the report, one Zhan Liue, emphasized: “In order to split India, China can subordinate such countries as Pakistan, Nepal and Bhutan, support the United Front of the Liberation of Assam (ULFA) in achieving its goals of providing independence to Assam, like Tamils ​​and Nagas, encourage Bangladesh to push for independence of West Bengal and finally return 90 thousands of square kilometers of Southern Tibet. ” It is noteworthy that this publication appeared at the time of the 14-th round of Sino-Indian negotiations to resolve border conflicts.

In an objective analysis of the report, Zhan Liue should recognize that the possibility of the collapse of India really exists. The country has been torn apart from the inside by a whole complex of interethnic, inter-ethnic and interfaith conflicts. For example, in July 2012, the top political leadership of India had to take emergency measures in connection with the large-scale escalation of tensions in Assam, where mass clashes took place between indigenous Bodo people and Muslim migrants from neighboring Bangladesh. The separatists immediately intervened in the conflict. The leaders of the terrorist organization, the National Democratic Front of Bodoland, announced that they would fight for the creation of their own state at any cost. In addition, armed separatists operate in Ladakh, Kashmir, West Bengal and a number of other states. If they receive sufficient financial and military support from outside, they will be able to plunge India into a continuous chaos of interethnic conflicts, which will lead to the complete collapse of the rear of the Indian army.

Drawing parallels between the domestic political situation in Russia and India, it is easy to notice the obvious similarity: in both countries, the main threat is various kinds of extremism, separatism and terrorism, which potential opponents from outside seek to take advantage of. Therefore, Moscow and New Delhi today are faced with the need to unite efforts to counter these threats and create collective security structures. A number of Russian politicians and experts are calling for the formation of a military-political alliance with India, which has long been Russia's largest partner in military-technical cooperation. Such a union of the two largest Eurasian powers is objectively necessary.

        Is it China?

        Economic integration, that is, globalization, is practically complete - and in such a way that everything, including the economy and the "elite" of China, is tied to the West.
        History shows that political globalization always follows economic globalization, and justification is necessary for it. It is here that supposedly advanced China will be most welcome, showing the world community as an example of its fake success.

        And under this screen it will be possible to slowly promote, formalize, and legalize the idea of ​​a world government, with all the ensuing consequences.

        The authorities of Saudi Arabia, when geologists found oil on the Arabian Peninsula, did not let the Chinese into their territory, even with the promise to pay Saudi masters well. Why our leaders can not conduct a total deportation of the Chinese,

    expand expansion along with ideology, promoting the market for their goods and services.

    India can become a very valuable ally. She has nothing against us. The population of India is almost equal to the population of China, and if in the event of a war between Russia and India against China, India will have an army numerically superior to the army of China, then China will not be able to rely on numerical superiority in the war with us. True, there are doubts about the United States. All three of these countries are serious rivals for the United States.

    Enemy No. 1 of the USA - China. Because America is trying to pit us, for them it is an ideal option, but we are helping China to overcome the technological backwardness from the United States (little by little, this can explain the transfer of some weapons to China), which means they have not pecked.
    Enemy No. 1 in China and Russia - the United States, is still common. India is an ally for us in the confrontation with both China (just in case) and the USA. And until the hegemon is overthrown, China is our friend and brother.
    When, and in case America ceases to be our common enemy, our confrontation with China will begin, but by then we will already have India armed with us. And maybe (incredible, but true) Germany. Enough for China.

      1) China is an American factory, according to the military potential of China to the United States as to the moon on foot. And only the lazy did not conquer them, the PLA does not have combat experience as such. Only theory. And fakes for Soviet military technology.
      2) India has enough problems with Pakistan, the army is imprisoned for a local war on its territory, and the nuclear military potential, to put it mildly, is dull. Like the industrial complex.
      3) Germany here which side? This is a country lying under the US on four limbs. The first sane attempt by Western European countries to become independent is the EU, but when everyone began to be taken there, the French-German economies began to storm not childishly. About thirty years later, with the integration of countries and armies, that may be worthwhile.

The Chinese economy is really growing and really claims to have world influence (the world was created by God, the rest is done in China), and if crossed with Russian ambitions, then a superpower would be in no way inferior to the United States; but this is not enough. In foreign policy, they generally do not give a damn except for the "last Chinese warning".

    China is becoming dangerous. The question is that China is becoming more aggressive, demanding territories that have never been his. Be it Senkaku (Japan) or Spratly (Vietnam) or part of India. It is noteworthy that, in addition to the countries of the former USSR, no one thinks of making concessions to China.

    A holy place is never empty. Previously, the Soviet Union was engaged in this and often did quite well. Chinese trumps in economic development, relative peace (compare with the United States, Britain, France), a slight stratification of society, the absence of an annoying desire to teach others, the cohesion of the people.

      Yes not really ??
      Here are the words of the Chinese ideologist from the article:
      "Further, the Chinese ideologist deciphers the meaning of the term" reglobalization ":" to form a common human civilization and, becoming the flagship of a new post-Western era, to create the preconditions for the eternal development of all mankind in the world, where China will be an assistant and mentor to everyone""

    I came to the conclusion that China will indeed go on aggression against the rest of the world, with the exception of Russia. Russia in this conflict will remain neutral until the very last moment. When the Western world is on the verge of falling, or already falling, and China will already be confident in its hegemony and will enjoy its victory by doing lawlessness, Russia will once again intervene (possibly by protecting its lands) and change the course of history by ending China, thereby returning everything in its own circles.

    Russia, when choosing between India and China, must bet on China. Firstly, he is territorially our largest and most powerful neighbor, unlike distant India; secondly, India is mentally more inclined towards the Western model of world order due to its Anglo-colonial past and this is already creating some problems for us in military-technical cooperation (for example, deliberately adjusted losses of Russian firms in a number of tenders for the supply of aircraft or growing US penetration into the Indian market weapons); thirdly, China, unlike India, regularly supports Russia's position in the UN (for example, on the issue of Syria and Iran), and Indians more often support the West; fourthly, if we allow a clear bias towards India, this will cause an increase in military, economic and political pressure on us from China, which we can hardly resist for a long time. To neutralize this pressure, we will have to go closer to the United States on the conditions determined by the Americans. What this will lead to we have already seen in the 90s, so it still hiccups.
    Conclusion: we must be friends with all countries, but with China in the first place.

    I will repeat it in a new fashion, but now China looks like an ancient mighty dragon waking up from the thousand-year-old hibernation, and when it finally rises to its strong, clawed legs, it will be very difficult to compete with this animal, unprecedented to the village !!

      Do not write ahead of time. Prior to this, they did not allow to rise, and now they will not give. The world needs China as a source of cheap (if not gratuitous) slave-force. The main players are interested in this. And so he will remain so. hi

    Not that the Chinese do not talk well done, the promotion of their interests in foreign countries is a sign of a healthy and strong state. Who prevented the Russians? The USSR at the zenith of power in 1953 controlled or influenced half of the world geographically and on a large population, but all this was changed to sneakers and Vidiks, so that porn didn’t stick together from sneakers? Looking at today's PRC advancement, it’s bitter to realize that Russia is unable neither to unite fraternal peoples nor to create new ideas, only we are the most energy power to sell everything for dollars .....
