It’s now the US-India-Australia-Japan vs China-Russia Combo?

KUALA LUMPUR (January 2018): Two news reports from India, a staunch US ally, indicate the escalation of animosity against China.

The two news reports are titled “Two missiles could blow up Three Gorges: strategist” and “China is a ‘disruptive power’, must be contained, say Naval chiefs of India, Australia, Japan and US”.

It shows the US and its allies are desperate to stop China’s global economic and military progress and influence.

When has China threatened any sovereign country with war? India, Australia and Japan?

All three are US’ strongest ally and are clearly jealous and threatened by China and Russia’s growing global influence in both economics and defence.

Their threats are no more subtle but extremely direct - an indication of desperation.

I Love Malaysia-China Silk Road finds it interesting to ask: “What’s UK’s stand?”

The majority of the UK agree with you, Mr Putin

At the moment, is China strong enough to defend against the war-waging US that is supported strongly by India, Australia and Japan?

In the event the US and its allies really lose their sanity, will Russia stand by China? This is the next biggest question if military action is unleashed.

I Love Malaysia-China Silk Road finds the following two news reports extremely disturbing, don’t you:

Two missiles could blow up Three Gorges: strategist

Taiwan should buy 1,000 missiles to seal off China's central and southeastern provinces in the event of war, said the scholar


JANUARY 15, 2018 7:21 PM

A strategist with Taiwan’s renowned Tamkang University has suggested procurement of 1,000 medium-range missiles for a grand total of NT$30 billion (US$1 billion).

With a complement of missiles that can attack targets within a radius of 1,000-1,500 kilometers, about 30 People’s Liberation Army airbases could be sealed off in the event of war between mainland China and Taiwan, Peter Su, senior researcher with Tamkang University’s Center for Advanced Technology, told a recent forum on Taiwan’s defense strategies.

All of China’s eastern and southeastern provinces as well as much of central and northern China fall within 1,500km from Taipei.

Currently Taiwan’s indigenous Hsiung Feng IIE surface-to-surface cruise missiles have a range of more than 600km, bringing some mainland coastal cities and military establishments within their radius.

The Taiwanese military has ramped up funding for developing more powerful, longer-range missiles that can put Shanghai, Guangzhou and even the Three Gorges Dam within range.

Citing the Taiwanese defense minister at the time, Michael Tsai, a 2014 report by the Taipei-based Liberty Times also revealed that during former president Chen Shui-bian’s last year in power in 2008, the island had already been trialing missiles with ranges well exceeding 1,000km.

Tsai accompanied Chen to a military base in Taiwan’s southernmost county of Pingtung and inspected a drill in which a missile flew “well beyond the typical range of a medium-range missile.”

But while having the know-how to develop these missiles is one thing, beefing up production for their swift deployment is another. Hence Su’s proposal to splurge on procurement from overseas.

The distance between Taipei and China’s Three Gorges Dam is 1,200 kilometers.
A panelist asked during the forum’s question and answer session about the possibility of a pounce-like missile offensive targeting China’s key infrastructure sites such as the Three Gorges Dam, which straddles the Yangtze River in the Hubei province, some 1,200km northwest of Taipei.

Su replied briefly that two missiles would do the job.

Destroying the Three Gorges Dam has been a tactic floated and hotly debated in Taiwan since the early 1990s, when the dam was still under construction as China’s No 1 infrastructure and hydroelectricity project in the 20th century.

There would be cataclysmic floods deluging cities and farmlands in central and eastern China if the 2,335-meter-long, 181-meter-high dam were to collapse after a missile attack.

But Chinese media say the dam is a steel-concrete gravity dam and the water is held back by the innate mass of the individual dam sections, thus any damage to one section should not affect other parts, and the dam could withstand the impact of a tactical nuclear strike thanks to its sheer size.

It’s said that the PLA has installed a good number of anti-air and anti-surface missiles in the vicinity of the dam plus a regional theater missile defense shield, forming a well-guarded no-fly zone that encompasses the dam and its peripheral structures. -

China is a ‘disruptive power’, must be contained, say Naval chiefs of India, Australia, Japan and US
Beijing’s naval power was expanding and it had been ignoring international law, Japanese Admiral Katsutoshi Kawano said.


Naval chiefs of the Quadrilateral nations – India, United States, Australia and Japan – called China a “disruptive power” on Thursday, and pushed for a new regional security architecture to contain Beijing, The Times of India reported.

“China is a disruptive, transitional force in the Indo-Pacific,” US Pacific Commander Admiral Harry Harris said on the last day of the Raisina Dialogue in New Delhi. “We must be willing to take tough decisions in 2018 against unilateral ways to change the use of shared natural resources with rule-based freedom of navigation.”

Indian Navy Chief Sunil Lanba, Australian Navy Chief Vice Admiral Tim Barret, and Japanese Admiral Katsutoshi Kawano echoed Harris’ sentiments. Lanba said China’s Navy had changed its deployment pattern around Indian waters.

“They have a base in Djibouti. They have developed a port in Hambantota [in Sri Lanka], though we have been told there will be no permanent presence of the Chinese Navy there,” Lanba said. “China is developing ports and infrastructure that are not viable.”

“China’s military power is expanding,” Kawano said. “In the East and South China seas, China has been ignoring international law. In order to deter Chinese provocations, India, the US, Australia and Japan have to cooperate with one another.”

However, Indian Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar said China had been a “motivator and example” for India in some ways. “People think that if China can do it, why can’t we?” he said. “To some extent, China has opened up the international order allowing India to make its presence felt. Its rise has many facets.”

The foreign secretary said that China was not just a rising global power but also a “very different power.” India, Jaishankar said, was part of the “solution”. “India has committed around $25-30 billion [Rs 1.6 lakh crore to Rs 1.9 lakh crore] in credits and grants in our extended neighbourhood, from East Africa to South East Asia”. -
