Threat from China

Lancer International Incorporated, 2011 - History - 548 pages

The multidimensional threat between 2011 and 2014 from China is real. The threat from China has crept to level orange for the past many years, and the creeping invasion built over decades displays great features of stealth. First, they invaded and forcibly occupied independent Tibet. Subsequently, to protect their flank in Tibet, the Chinese demanded that Arunachal be part of China. Theoretically, even if India hands over conveniently termed Southern Tibet, they will want to occupy the whole of the northeast to protect flanks of Arunachal. China primarily feels threatened by the existence of the Union of India as it challenges their ambition of being the unilateral power leading Asia. Instead of integration of the citizenry and consolidation of different regions, our shortsighted politicians extend a helping hand to China and Pakistan by dividing Indians internally for vote-bank politics. Indians continue to live in isolated compartments of their making without links to the big picture.
