China Asks US To Respect Pakistan


economict imes.indiatimes.com

BEIJING/ISLAMABAD: China on Thursday said the international community "must respect" Pakistan's sovereignty, tacitly confirming reports that it has asked the US not to violate Islamabad's territorial integrity, following the killing of Osama bin Laden .

Asked about reports that China has asked US during its recently concluded strategic dialogue with Washington to respect Pakistan's sovereignty as Islamabad came under heavy pressure after bin Laden's killing, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson, Jiang Yu told media here that "sovereignty and territorial integrity of Pakistan must be respected."

China has "warned in unequivocal terms that any attack on Pakistan would be construed as an attack on China", The News daily quoted diplomatic sources as saying.

Good for China in the hypocrisy arena... Now, they need to practice what they preach in the South China sea and with some of their Southern neighbors.

Also, a top ranking Chinese General just stated in Western Media China does not want a war with the US because they would lose. He cited our technologocial advancement in weapons systems.

This is a pretty intense message considering that China is strengthening its own military ties with our neighbors to the south, Mexico...




Chinese, Mexican defense ministers hold talks on military cooperation

Chinese Defense Minister Liang Guanglie met his Mexican counterpart Guillermo Galvan Galvan in Mexico City Wednesday to promote bilateral military cooperation.

Liang, also China's state councilor, said that Mexico is China's good friend and partner in the Latin American region, adding China attaches great importance to developing ties with Mexico.

China is willing to boost its military ties with Mexico and deepen bilateral military exchanges and cooperation in various fields, he said.

Liang thanked the Mexican government for its support to China on the issues of Taiwan and Tibet.

Galvan said China is a great country, and Mexico has high expectations for boosting its military ties with China. The two sides can strengthen exchanges to expand military cooperation, the minister added.

Liang also met Mexico's Navy Minister Mariano Francisco Sainez Mendoza, and both sides agreed to promote military exchanges and cooperation.

Liang arrived here Tuesday for a four-day visit.

Fair is fair, I say.


If the US wants to pour itself into China's neighbors, let China into Mexico, Cuba, and Canada too!

"...in the pacific..."

i believe that the general said:




A top Chinese general said his country was ready to bolster military ties with the United States but warned that Washington's arms sales to Taiwan remained a stumbling block.

In a week-long visit to the United States, People's Liberation Army Chief of General Staff Chen Bingde struck a mostly conciliatory tone, saying his country had no plans to take on the US military in the Pacific.

Top Chinese General: "China does not have the capability to challenge the US."

China's top military officer said Wednesday that his country lacked the equipment and directives necessary to challenge the U.S. militarily.

"Through my visit over the past couple of days in the United States, I am surprised by the sophistication of the U.S. military, including its weapons and equipment and doctrines and so on," People's Liberation Army leader General Chen Bingde said. "I can tell you that China does not have the capability to challenge the United States. As a matter of fact, the reconnaissance activities along China's coast by U.S. military aircraft and vessels are

If I were a top Chinese military officer, I'd probably say the same thing.


After all, it was an ancient Chinese man who wrote the book on war, "The Art of War," and one of the most fundamental rules clearly stated in the opening:


18. All warfare is based on deception.

19. Hence, when able to attack, we must seem unable;
when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we
are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away;
when far away, we must make him believe we are near.

20. Hold out baits to entice the enemy. Feign disorder,
and crush him.

21. If he is secure at all points, be prepared for him.
If he is in superior strength, evade him.

22. If your opponent is of choleric temper, seek to
irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant.

23. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest.
If his forces are united, separate them.

24. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where
you are not expected.

25. These military devices, leading to victory,
must not be divulged beforehand.

Of course we will see how all of this turns out. If the US even seriously thinks of a war with China, on top of all the other nonsense our leaders have done in the Middle East without the consent of the people, I can't help but think they would be simultaneously facing a total revolt/second revolution at home.

He could be manipulating the media, and the US into thinking that for all we know.
They have many more people at their "expense" and probably aren't afraid to use them

We all know Pakistan is just a tool they're using to balance their power with India's.

And under what Canadian foreign policy information gave you the idea that we would even consider such a thing? You do understand that we just elected a Conservative majority government up here who recognizes the U.S. as a close friend and Allie, right?

Sorry to say it brother, but if the US keeps pushing into Pakistan and other countries in the Middle East without permission, China may not need your government's permission to come for a visit, either.

You live by the sword, you can most certainly die from it, as they say.

The USA is isolating itself more every day with its policies. This is just one more little thing tipping the scales out of balance.

We should redirect our attentions back home & let the rest of the world ALONE a bit. We can't control everything, and we're running out of money to manipulate things with.

Well then we are talking about WW3 and all gloves are off, a full scale invasion of North America would lead to a full realease of nuclear weapons against China, something neither side with any sense would want to see, espeically since strategically speaking China's current nuclear arsenal is no match to the U.S.

I don't think anyone is going to see a nuclear war, but if there were, both sides have plenty enough to destroy the world, I'm sure. The older 1950's technology actually does a better job doing that than the newer "tactical" fusion bombs they've developed since then, so older technology would actually be more devastating.

If you really don't want a nuclear war though, don't you think you might want to speak up about the US provoking Pakistan, which is also a nuclear power, and which China says they will defend as if it's their own?

Of course if we piss off all these countries on the other side of the world I guess you're going to say it's their fault for defending themselves and doing what they have to do.

It's all "tit for tat" saber rattling and China has to much investment to just throw it away on a country like Pakistan. I mean seriously, you honestly think that when push comes to shove China would risk losing it's billions perhaps trillions of dollars it has invested in the U.S. economy for a country like Pakistan? It's not very logical, especially with all the money involved, and trust me, there's a MASSIVE amount of corrupt chinese politicians and party members with HUGE interests in the U.S.

Pakistan needs to learn that harbouring terrorist garbage will not be tolerated. Killing UBL was a fantastic decision and I respect President Obama for having the guts to pull it off.

On the same token, I would like to see President Obama come out and state that he would like to see China respect the people of Nepal and it's borders, a nation that China has raped and plundered for countless years.
