It's not a case of whether India will support the US or have it's back. It's a case of India among many in the region standing up to the Chinese
themselves. For some reason people keep forgetting the fact that there are other countries in the region which are apposed to China's moves and have
on their own moved to counter it.
When you say "moves" if you are talking solely about this territory stuff, I don't really see this as action. It's basically just show right now.
For all we know someone ever there is thinking some other country is going to strike against the US or Israel and really get something started and
they are already mobilizing. What if this territory dispute was really just a cover to explain why they all look ready to go.
What if they are "ready to go" because of some rumor we know nothing about?
We don't really "know" anything at this point so how can we really take what India is saying as a "stand"... it could very well be more like a "lie"
If I was India, I would get ready too... look how close they are to Iran and look what's proceeding in the Zionist plot.
If I was india, I would totally be getting ready for all kinds of possible hell to break loose and if the US asked what I was doing I'd have no choice
but to make up some excuse... or else look at them and say "well, US, it appears you and your cronies want to start WW3"
If ONLY political communication was that direct in real life.
I'm not ready to take military readiness over seemingly small isolated incidents as a stand against China that started with a small uninhabited island
that's really not going to affect India either way.
It just doesn't quite have that feel to it.
Also... even if this issue WERE completely as it reads.... it still has little to do with India being our ally. Just because they are protecting their
assets (so they say) that's no indication that India will actually tussle with China especially over any US interest. I think anyone who reads
western loyalty into that is very hopeful. It also kind of sends a message that people in the US are actually concerned we will soon have to deal with
China in global involvement and are counting their allies for a big ol grand slam and that's a rather unattractive perspective in my opinion. It also
serves as pretty confusing equation if you consider that this information is entirely true. It means people BOTH believe the story, but still think
China wants to start bigger problems as in WW3. If it's just a territory dispute that they are so engrossed in, do we really think they are the ones
who are going to be starting WW3?
If you believe the story, they are all up in arms over an island and some fish, not starting war with the west.
...but if you are worried that no ones going to stand up to China, you must be talking about the upcoming globalization, because there are plenty of
other powers that currently need someone standing up to them. Why does it have to be "standing up to China" that is a concern... unless being in debt
makes you THAT uncomfortable. Do you believe BOTH interests are going down simultaneously? BOTH are true... not only does China want that little
island but afterward they are going to come kick our ass. What are the chances BOTH are true at the very same time if it's no cover.
I mean really.... why are we so badly in need of an ally in the face of China?
If it's solely about Countries in THAT region standing up to China, then again... the term "ally" has very little to do with anything.
No matter how you slice it, this incident with India says nothing about their relationship with the US.
