you are so wrong, gwynne dyer. china is india's enemy, par excellence. and it is the us' enemy, too.
i have been saying for years that it is the new nazi state (reader san please note): extreme jingoism, memories of imperial hauteur and then great humiliation. the big difference is that china is a continent-sized nation with 150 million peasants it is willing to sacrifice. germany was only a medium-sized nation surrounded by wary neighbors roughly equally capable. as far as china is concerned, the only equal nation is india, but it has so successfully infiltrated india with its missionary marxists and stalinists that india is a virtual colony already.
this beast needs to be disciplined. remember the ghostly butler in 'the shining'? china needs to be 'corrrrected'.
