"Imperial Confucianism binds the Chinese state into looking for a peaceful resolution of disputes so long as the other party also abides by the canons of reason and virtue. Coercion becomes justified only when the other party becomes 'unreasonable'.
China's growing impatience suggests it's coming to this conclusion about New Delhi."
The windbag is insisting that the Chinese communists are intrinsically peaceful, reasonable and virtuous and employ violence and coercion only when their patience is tested! That is, the Indians condemned to eternal dhimmitude better behave or else they would be coercing the Hans to deviate from traditional Confucian values!! Why does this sound a lot like dhimmis of the Gandhian persuasion declaring that Islam is a "Religion of Peace", that Islamist terror is "un-Islamic", that the ROP is the most "egalitarian" creed etc ? To think that a lunatic like this had access to the highest corridors of power in GOI! Can India justifiably aspire to being taken seriously as a great power with lunatic windbags of this ilk infesting the highest levels of our government?
