Checking CHINA

China's which has been following the Deng's rule of "concealing the capacities" and not attracting attention for a long time, has not been able to do it anymore. It's recent military buildup has started becoming a concern for a lot of countries, especially USA and Japan. Even though india should be more worried than any of the other countries we haven't been doing much, apart from the late actions to get myanmar out of the grips of china.



China has been encircling india.
•Pakistan: China has been building a deep Sea Port in gwadar in Balochistan province.

•Bangladesh: China is strengthening its ties to the government and building a container port facility at Chittagong. The Chinese are "seeking much more extensive naval and commercial access" in Bangladesh.

• Burma: China has developed close ties to the military regime in Rangoon and turned a nation wary of China into a "satellite" of Beijing close to the Strait of Malacca, through which 80 percent of China's imported oil passes.
China is building naval bases in Burma and has electronic intelligence gathering facilities on islands in the Bay of Bengal and near the Strait of Malacca. Beijing also supplied Burma with "billions of dollars in military assistance to support a de facto military alliance," the report said.more
It is also building large helipads in the disputed India-china border areas. The nepal king closed the dalai lama's ofice in nepal from chinese pressure and some believe there is a chinese hand in the king's recent coup.

We haven’t been doing much against all these. But looks like the west has waken up to china's ambitions both in the indian ocean and the taiwan strait.

Some of the recent reports reveal america's counter moves.
A small unit of US commandoes is operating within Myanmar to dislodge the military junta with the help of dissident youth who have spent years in exile in Thailand.more
Pakistan may withdraw from the Gwadar development project, after compensating China for its investments, and this follows direct pressure from US defence secretary Donald Rumsfeld on General Parvez Musharraf.more
US has also been making efforts to keep the european union selling arms to China and is co-operating more with japan to check china on the taiwan straits.

The recent US willingness to sell the Patriot missile's to india could also be a part of its strategy to contain China.
A central goal of the confrontationists has been to deploy an anti-ballistic missile shield (ABM) in Asia, which the administration is now in the process of doing. So far it has enlisted Japan and Australia in this effort, and it is wooing India as well. While the rationale for the ABM is alleged to be North Korea, the real target is China's 20 intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs).

It's high time for the indian goverment to wake up and make counter moves against china's ambitions on the indian ocean. It should utilise the current oppurtunities, to co-operate with US and other countries in containing china.

Iam eagerly waiting for the death news of surjeet singh, that will begin a new era in indian politics.

The congress in pursuit of the liberalization with a human face is neglecting the essential security aspect of the country.China's military budget allocation is scaring US but the congress govt budget allocation for military is not even sufficient to buy the patriots or other advanced equipments india needs.
