All infowar provocations by the US to exploit the unresolved Chinese-Indian border disputes must be adequately dealt with, and ideally preemptively whenever possible, in order to ensure that this latest divide-and-rule scheme targeting those two Asian Great Powers fails just like the one that tried to drive a wedge between India and Russia.
Indian External Affairs Minister (EAM) Jaishankar predicted that the Asian Century will arrive upon his country and China finally resolving their border disputes, which Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin agreed with shortly thereafter. These two multipolar Great Powers are the world’s largest developing countries and are therefore capable of significantly influencing the global systemic transition to multipolarity. It therefore follows that maintaining stable relations and comprehensively building upon progress in this respect is among their most important grand strategic priorities.
To this end, it’s absolutely imperative that no third parties meddle in this very sensitive issue. The declining American unipolar hegemon’s grand strategy is the opposite of those two rising multipolar Great Powers’ since it aims to aggressively divide and rule Eurasia in order to indefinitely prolong its fading leadership over international affairs. Try as it might, the US has failed to turn India against China and Russia, with its latest efforts related to pressuring its South Asian partner to condemn and sanction the Kremlin actually proving to be counterproductive after Delhi repeatedly rebuffed them with pride.
India is also reluctant to rock the boat in its relationship with China too, especially after some of its companies began using the yuan to facilitate bilateral trade with Russia. Not only that, but it keenly understands that the US is dead-set on exploiting it as a proxy for militarily containing the People’s Republic. Under no circumstances will India allow itself to be taken advantage of to fight a war at the behest of someone else halfway across the world, hence why it’s extremely uncomfortable with America aggressively pushing it in this direction.
Since that declining unipolar hegemon’s strategists have failed to learn their lessons from the counterproductive policy of pressuring India to turn against Russia, it’s expected that they’ll attempt to replicate this same unsuccessful approach in trying to pressure India to turn against China. This is especially likely after US Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s provocative trip to Taiwan earlier this month very strongly suggested that Washington is planning to revive its “Pivot to Asia” in the coming future, which leads to the prediction that it’ll redouble its efforts to divide and rule those two Asian Great Powers.
The easiest fault line to exploit in this respect is their unresolved border disputes, which is why India must remain alert for any forthcoming Hybrid War provocations in the information domain aimed at bringing about this worst-case scenario. America will do its utmost to turn that targeted society’s people against their government over this sensitive issue, especially after it became obvious that “The Indian Opposition Is Doing America’s Bidding By Beating The Drums Of War Against China” and “American Media Is Manipulating Perceptions About Joint Annual Military Drills With India”.
All such infowar provocations must be adequately dealt with, and ideally preemptively whenever possible, in order to ensure that this latest divide-and-rule scheme fails just like the one that tried to drive a wedge between India and Russia. Meanwhile, China and India will continue talks over peacefully resolving their border disputes, but it’s impossible to predict how long it’ll take to achieve progress, let alone what the ultimate outcome will look like. Therefore, what’s most important at this time is to thwart US Hybrid War threats and thus remove all third-party obstacles to arrival of the Asian Century.
