HT MEDIA REPORT ON 6TH May, “Pakistan joined hands with neighbouring China after America’s growing relationship with India. “
Michael Rubin, Ex Pentagon, “With souring relationship with Washington and growing business and strategic ties with Beijing, Pakistan is leading nothing more than a colony of China.” Over 15000 Chinese in POK claims Rubin !
In IDF’s 13th COVID19 Analysis it shines the light on the Indian Ocean Region(IOR) where India is the military power in the region, but has an unrelenting perennial enemy in Pakistan under Military control. If not controlled soon, it will be too late.
As India gets stronger, Pakistan is turning more to China to keep its coffers going, and continues to plague India with terror, especially when India is fighting COVID. Ramzan ends on 11th commemorating the victory of Badr, and 24 Chinese MBT Tanks are arriving Pakistan in a freighter, Prasun reported.
In the 17th Century India and China, two great civilizations were economic powers, but traversed differing histories. India never met its enemies at Kyber but Panipat, and got ruled by Muslim invaders from 11TH century. In the 15th century foreign maritime powers Dutch, French, Portuguese and British defeated Indians at sea and ruled India till 1947. Foreign rule depleted India’s coffers, and though Indian military contributed to the world wars India was not adequately compensated. Nehru inherited that weak grain less India, but India survived. India is not easy to govern with languages, religions and a huge cantankerous intelligent population with diverse religions.
Most Indians view foreign rule as passé but British shrewdly balanced religions. Diehards challenge secularism with Hindutva to make amends! Muslims in India feel unsecure in recent years and create obstacles to India’s harmony. This has sapped the energy of the Police and Intelligence which is Police manned to serve the state, a legacy left by the British. GDP was increased by a percentage with new calculations lulling economists. Grandiose plans with a falling economy is when Covid has struck !
China on the other hand, recalls the Opium War period when British thrust Opium grown in India on the population with French and US domination for 100 years (1839-1949), they dub as ‘The 100 years of Shame’ (百年耻辱), never to be allowed again, which includes the Nanjing massacre by the Japanese.
Chinese became hungry, hell bent to regain their, lost ‘China’s Dream’ at any cost and sacrifice and bow to the authoritarian rule of CCP and the Leader from Heaven. Deng introduced Capitalism and SEZs but criticism against the State, is handled with a ruthless arm. The poorest Chinese got quantity (money), quality to him. China today is a modern state with good education, medical and living standards but life is different from the West. Their enjoyment is different. Covid whistle blowers were made to disappear and the true casualties of Covid in China are unknown.

To rise China(peacefully ?) followed Portuguese and Mahanian Maritime lessons to obtain economic and maritime power, with unapologetic expansionist moves with bases, called String of Pearls and Weiqi. China’s rise to a $ 13 trillion GDP has been a miracle and CCP ensures the population is kept under surveillance with AI and technology, which has helped China to combat Corona Virus leaked from Wuhan. Nations are aping it now, a new Normal.
China makes no secret of its global ambitions, but realized it does not have a maritime geography. China usurped the islands in the Parcel and Spratlys in the South China Seas and with leading technology, converted rocks in to islands to claim a large swath of their historical 8 Dash Line EEZ and armed the islands to assert possession, and broke ASEAN’s objections. Only Vietnam is left. China did not accept Philippines’ UNCLOS verdict. IDF has studied Taiwan’s TAIPING (IBU ATTA) island’s status which is up their sleeve, to reopen the arbitration if it is pushed to the wall. China has a full University for UNCLOS.
China’s Belt & Road Initiative(BRI) and Maritime Silk Route(MSR) with doles (Tribute) are China’s vehicles to win without fighting taught by Sun Tzu and Tao’s ways and allows no religion save Communism to challenge Western(USA’s) leadership.
Chinese aped Japan and Korea’s rise with a massive ship building and naval expansion programme. The PLA(Navy) currently has the world’s largest 310 ship aviation cum missile navy with two aircraft carriers, forty destroyers and frigates, support ships, LPDs and sixty submarines which includes nuclear boats, and the world’s largest Coast Guard. China has armed fishing trawlers and fitted Electronic devices for intelligence collection. China is on course to become a technologically savvy navy. The West refuses to accept that. Chinese are strategists by DNA and hungry to gain technology by any means !
Dr Rubin confirms Pakistan sees in China a strategic ally to deter India in IOR and POK, and a partner unlikely to criticise Pakistani corruption, its poor treatment of religious minorities and its internal human rights, as partners in crime. Pakistan can be made a major market for China with land links into West Asia, through the strategic port at Gwadar. Soon Submarines will be based at China funded Ormara and the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) may succeed as a major road into Pakistan and, more broadly, South Asia.
Chinese workers had gone home for the Chinese New Year 25th Jan, but have returned to Pakistan to work on CPEC projects, bringing the total numbers of Chinese workers between 10,000 and 15,000, Rubin says, and adds, “Gilgit-Baltistan may be the canary in the coal mine as locals suffer Covid for the sake of Pakistan’s China partnership. It is one of Pakistan’s harder-hit regions. Pakistani officials have long neglected the region, even while working to strip away its right to self-rule.
Pakistani nationalists have used anti-Americanism and grievances real or imagined to fool USA and shirk responsibility for their own actions and cynically drive a wedge between Islamabad and Washington. China has simultaneously courted Pakistan. That sums up Pakistan’s vassal status.”
Pakistan pays homage and allegiance to China to keep India at bay but USA does not want to sanction Pakistan. Chakar Ye Hai as PM Vajpayee IDF’s hero would say. Shan Na Varuna.
