Russia’s foreign military intelligence directorate (GRU) is reporting today that “fears” of an Asian-wide war “has never been greater” after reports surfaced of India rushing over 36,000 hardened mountain troops to their border with China.
In this latest Great Game move by the Elephant (India) against their longtime Dragon (China) enemy the threat of open conflict erupting between these two largest Nations in the World has never been nearer since the 1962 Sino-India War that in one month of fighting caused over 6,000 casualties, this report says.
Since 2005, India has been warning of the “unprecedented” Chinese military buildup against them; a warning echoed this past summer by a group of top US Senators who warned that China now “threatens to challenge US freedom of action in space, cyberspace, at sea and in the air” too.
Too India’s latest moves we can, also, read as reported by the BBC News Service:
The remote north-eastern state adjoins China which claims large parts of it. A total of 1,260 officers and 35,011 soldiers have been assigned to the two new divisions, which are being especially equipped for mountain warfare.
The 56th Division will be based in the nearby state of Nagaland to guard the eastern flank of Arunachal Pradesh from Chinese attack through Burma. The other new formation, the 71st Division, will be based in Assam to protect central Arunachal Pradesh.”
Though Chinese officials have not yet responded to India’s latest move its official Global Times newspaper slammed it as a “defiant move” and said “those hawkish groups in New Delhi are getting above themselves”.
Not being understood by Westerners about this growing conflict is it is all being centered on Afghanistan, which in this latest chapter of the Great Game has become the literal centerpiece upon which no Nation can survive the 21st Century without possessing or having total control of.
The reasons for this are twofold: 1.) Whoever controls Afghanistan gains supremacy over the Caspian Sea regions vast oil and gas deposits, and 2.) Whoever controls Afghanistan gains for themselves an estimated $1 Trillion worth of untapped mineral riches our World is fast running out of.
Vying for this “prize” is the West that is backed by the military might of the United States and its European allies through NATO. Next up is India, who is once again partnering with its longtime ally Russia. Then there are the Chinese who have allied themselves with Pakistan, who unlike the other players in this Great Game actually borders Afghanistan and has been building up its troops for an invasion for years.
To how soon an Asian-wide war for possession of Afghanistan will occur, this report warns, was seen yesterday when China unleashed its proxy North Korea uponSouth Korea in an unprovoked attack called the worst of its kind since the signing of the 1953 armistice halting the Korean War.
North Korea blamed South Korea for the attack and further warned today that their Nations stand “on the brink of war”, and which President Obama has vowedthe US will defend and has sent massive troop reinforcements to back up America’s interests.
China’s strategy, this report says, in embroiling the US in a new Korean war will allow them to begin an invasion of Afghanistan in concert with Pakistani backed Taliban and tribal ethnic forces neither the Americans nor their NATO allies will be able to stop.
This report further says that China has effectively checkmated India who in this conflict will face an unprecedented uprising in Kashmir, and which along with their forces facing off against the Chinese on their Northern border will render them unable to affect any outcome in Afghanistan.
Russian forces, this report continues, having learned their own “bitter lesson” in trying to gain control over Afghanistan is opting, instead, to reinforce its Far Eastern troops to keep this war from threatening its vast oil, gas, mineral and timber wealth in Siberia.
To who has the most to lose in this war it is beyond a doubt the Americans, who unbeknownst to the masses of their citizens face the almost assured prospect of growing power outages as one of the most important resources being fought over by these Great Powers is coal, which is fast running out and cannot power the growing needs of China and US at the same time.
Even worse was China’s cutting off access to the US and its Allies of what are called rare earth metals upon which the 21st Century economies are built upon and which the Chinese control 97% of and now threatens to plunge the West into an economic abyss the likes of which has not been seen since the Great Depression.
Most unfortunately for the American and European peoples is their remaining asleep as our World draws ever nearer to Total Global War, which with North Korea’s attack upon the South makes a certainty, but which none of them have prepared for.
