Skip to comments.China Says Countdown For War With India Has Begun
Posted on 08/11/2017 9:45:29 AM PDT by Enlightened1
The relationship between India and China seemed to worsen Wednesday when the Chinese Foreign Ministry said that 53 people and an Indian bulldozer was in China's territory and advised India to pull them back. This followed a warning Tuesday when an editorial in the state-run China Daily said that the "countdown to a clash between the two forces has begun."
"India should withdraw its troops and equipment. Regardless of how many Indian troops have trespassed into and stayed in Chinese territory, they have gravely infringed on China's sovereignty," the ministry said, the Global Times reported.
The China Daily editorial said the clock was ticking and that it seemed like a clash would be “an inevitable conclusion” between the two prominent Asian countries if India did pull back its troops from the disputed Doklam region.
The article referred to a border standoff between the two countries that has continued for over two months. The controversy began when India opposed China’s plan to extend a border road through a disputed plateau which Bhutan says is its Doklam region and China claims as part of its Donglang region.
India and Bhutan have historically maintained strong relations. The Indian Army is involved in training the Royal Bhutan Army, while Bhutan cooperates closely with India in determining its foreign policy. India has expressed concern that the road, if completed, would make it easier for China to access India's northeastern states. In the event of a conflict, India fears this would help China cut off its northeast from the rest of the country, the BBC reported.

Muslims would join with China one would assume...
China hates the Muslims.
Plenty of examples in history of allies who hate each other.
Muslims hate India.
They are both nuclear nations. This could get dicey.
Hey China...you’d better not shoot first, a##holes.
China’s going to war with India (over Kashmir), Philippines (over South China Sea), U.S. (over North Korea), and Japan (over Senkaku Islands).
Am I missing anything?
“China hates the Muslims.”
They don’t like one group in East Turkestan who have resisted Chinese rule.
ChiComs are allies with every other Islamist Jihadist group there is and have been for decades.
“Am I missing anything?”
Yes. That this reflects power struggles within the Chinese Communist Babana Republic more than anything else.
So should we tell China we will remain neutral if India attacks first ,but if the Chinese make the first strike..they have a YUUUGE problem ??
See how they like that?
Communist borders matter bump
Yes. Toss Vietnam into the mix. The People’s Army of Vietnam has beaten China to a standstill in the past and is far better armed now.
China tolerates Muslims because they aren’t importing low-IQ, backward, violent Muslims from other nations. The Han Race has no time for the multi-culti political correctness of the USA and Europe, nor the Soros-backed political meddling which comes with it.
They have their own minority Muslims in their far west, which they can deal with, but otherwise, their border is closed, they can otherwise make deals of convenience with the Muslim world as strategic demands require.
No,you are missing nothing except Russia is fighting in the Middle East. North Korea is not what they want to see.
The crisis began in mid-June when the Indian Army ‘prevented Chinese troops from building a road in Doklam’....
India is for a simultaneous withdrawal from Doklam, which, it says, belongs to its other neighbor Bhutan. Beijing says the area belongs to China and has asked India to stay out its dispute with Bhutan.
According to agreement in 2007...India and Bhutan have agreement that India would defend Bhutan’s border from Chinese encroachment. India’s involvement on this disputed area was at Bhutan’s request.
We back India, the Philippines, and Japan.
Maybe the NorK-USA problem is a diversion, or maybe the China-India thing is a diversion.
