Last poster had it right, the Chinese are pretty smart they know how to get what they want, sit there long enough while in negotiation and eventually
you have squatters rights, the end.
The stuff in the pacific is very minor also, in time they will get more than a fair share of those reserves and nobody will be able to do much about
As above the prior poster has it, they wont be fighting hard with india, there true ambitions are west, the pacific a safe zone and some resources
from their coast the Indian border a safe zone for the ability to move west.
No one "gets" the Chinese philosophy, we look at their hardware and army by our standards, realistically their whole military exists to enforce
peoples war and hold strategic locations, put 1 Million guys somewhere and no one will really want to attack them... solidify new borders that way.
The real war is by numbers
Canada and Now California has the highest immigration rate of Asians now (yes Asians are flocking to cali in greater numbers than mexicans, by far)
Ditto for Siberia, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan... Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan...
You can be 100% sure the reason they "loaned" us so much money through our Middle Eastern forays was to clear the silk road for them...
India is not the target
America is not the Target
Japan is not the Target...
These are trade partners, these skirmishes are ONLY to assure cutting them off from real goal is not "Easy"
Central Asia and The Middle East, Silk Road, now Oil Road, the Path to Trade with Europe and Energy independence
They wont shoot it out either... They will simply "Move In" after we are done bombing and fighting.... workers.
