China Appears to Understand the Risks in Kashmir More Than India or Pakistan

It’s too early to say what India’s breach of the status quo in Kashmir will mean for long-term stability in South Asia. There are, of course, many fears of where revoking the semiautonomous status of Jammu and Kashmir could lead—from another retaliatory insurgency by militants in Kashmir backed by Pakistan, or worse still a destabilizing war between the two nuclear-armed rivals. Ultimately, though, it is China—not India or Pakistan—that will likely tip the balance in a region teetering yet again on the brink.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party view downgrading Kashmir’s status from a state in India to a union territory directly governed by New Delhi as a decisive blow to Pakistan’s claims over the disputed territory. But everyone stands to lose if regional tensions escalate further, starting with the 8 million residents of the Kashmir Valley now living under a total Indian security lockdown and communications blackout. China, more than any other player in this dangerous game of Risk, seems to understand that best.

Clashes between India and Pakistan over the Line of Control in Kashmir, the de facto border between Indian- and Pakistan-administered territories, have been so frequent that it is sometimes easy to overlook China’s role elsewhere in the region. But Beijing also has competing claims over parts of Kashmir and has contributed to long-running frictions. In recent years, however, it is the uneasy semi-détente between China and India over the Line of Actual Control—which separates Chinese-controlled territory from Indian-administered Kashmir—and the so-called McMahon Line on Kashmir’s northerly flank that has kept India-Pakistan tensions in check.

Previously subtle signs of China growing into its role as a regional arbiter in South Asia have become more pronounced recently. In June, Beijing publicly acknowledged that Foreign Ministry representatives met with leaders of the Afghan Taliban in China. The Chinese government has also held steady as a supporter of the Iran nuclear deal, a key plank of stability in the wider region. While Beijing protested India’s unilateral move in Kashmir last week, its response has so far been measured, despite having legitimate concerns about its own territorial claims.

At issue for China this time is what will become of the border area it calls Aksai Chin, a vast high desert that comprises part of a far western stretch of China’s troubled Muslim-majority Xinjiang region, and that India historically has laid claim to as part of Ladakh, a district of Indian-administered Kashmir. New Delhi’s decision to revoke Kashmir’s semiautonomous status would effectively appear to put India in charge of the fate of Aksai Chin, at least on paper […]

  1. It’s amazing (to me!) how almost everything I read now leaves an impression that the entire world is being led by the nose into global conflict, war and genocide. Despite any rhetoric to the contrary, it seems that the desire and expectation of war, war, and more war, is a global phenomenon. As if there was no longer any choice and war must come.

      “The UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons has now been signed by 70 nations, and ratified by 25. With this Treaty, the world recognises that nuclear weapons now have the same status as chemical and biological weapons – an inhumane and immoral method of dealing with conflict.

      The world’s macho men, the hawks of both genders, the sociopathic leaders in business and politics can scoff, but with this Treaty comes a rational movement essential for the survival of humanity.

      The  immoral squandering of public funds on nuclear weapons continues apace. benefiting only a few greedy corporate big-wigs, and their government lackeys.  Nuclear weapons are useless – there are no winners in nuclear wars, the only result – the unimaginable horror and pain of the people.  Hiroshima and Nagasaki showed what this is like.

      The folly of the nuclear arms race continues – in the tensions in India, Pakistan, the Middle East, and all now led by theleaders of the most powerful nations.  Led by an irresponsible and unhinged US President Donald Trump,  they are scrapping the agreements on nuclear weapons control,   and feeding the greed of the weapons makers..

      People are going to have to decide –    perhaps take some short-term pain , by not allowing their votes and their savings, their investments, perhaps even their jobs, to be part of the weapons industries.

      Abe is covering up fukushima to allow more damaged reactor to open in Japan.
      Pompeo is trying to start a war with Iran. Trump destroying america. There will be on or more major nuclear catastrophes in america soon, because of Trump. In the next two years or sooner.

      They are all war mongers. Trump is setting a course for 2 or More Nuclear accidents in america soon. So is Abe, the nasty evil nuclear twit in Japan, who passed the Nuclear screts bill and opens Reactors as Tokyo is filled with feces, from crumbling municiple sewer systems in Japan.

      Up is down. Black is white. No is yes, EVIL IS GOOD In the parallel bullshit universe the ptb have evolved

      Abe wants nuclear arms to use against China and Korea

      Boris Johnson, is pushing for more nuclear plants and SMRs in the UK. More nuclear submarines. Johnson is Warmongering.

      Putin may not want nuclear proliferation, but he is up to his neck in nuclear insanity in russia, poisoning his own people to death.

      The insane evil-clown-monkey-mutation, Trump is busy abrogating nuclear treaties, while poisoning america to death. A chaotic evil asswipe

      They are all guilty of strangling democracy and civil rights, in their countries.

      Boris Johnson was not elected. The UK commandeered an Iranian oil tanker and now Pompeo is about to do the same

      There was a nuclear detonation in Russia that killed people. It has been linked to Putins supposed Nuclear Powered Cruise missile but who knows.

      It was consistent with a reactor accident and small low yield nuclear explosion. There is not much time for Humans left with insane Bastards like Putin , Trump, Johnson, and Abe in Power
      Dr L
      Roshydromet is attributing the gamma radiation spike to a cloud of noble gases (Xe, Kr) — consistent with a reactor accident.

      Russia’s Federal Weather Service says ‘meteorological situation’ dispersed radioactive gases around…

      This is what is Happening in America. It will happen in the UK and australia soon. How stupid can people be?

      The Tightening of The Noose . The Loss of Civil Rights under Trump in America

      1. The right to freedom of assembly. Pipeline and antifracking protestors arrested and charged . The freedom of assembly of antinuclear of protestors in the Nuclear subsidization debacle in Ohio. Trump is blatantly subsidizing reactors that are ready to blow and melrdown with holes in containment. Protestors harrassed and threatened there.

      Protestors harrassed and threatened with jail in California, by the Diablo Canyon reactors . Earthquakes damaged the Diablo Reactors. They are adjacent to Los Angeles. On the verge of meltdown.

      Harrassment of the antinuclear waste protestors in west texas . West Texans do not want 40 thousand tons of worst highlevel nuclear waste stored in thin huge, damaged, thin-skinned, casks that are ready to blow-up, right by them But The Fascist Bastard Trump and its cronies, insist on it.

      2. Trump wants to completely censor any internet critical of himself. Trump Had Julian Assange arrested.

      3. Freedom of speech. Several internet sites have been censored badly or completely under Trump gas and its corrupt Fccc chairman has completely censored half of Craigslist. Has censored all of News websites and several alternate websites. Trump threatens journalists. Trump had Julian Assange arrested.
      Trump has openly encouraged proud boys and othe brownshirts to attack journalists and prodemocaracy activists.

      4. We know that mass surveilance started under Bush, has gotten worse under trump. Local police agencies routinely use networks to monitor and harrass people. People have no say in the rollouts of super intrusive 5G technologies . 5G creates massive health hazards.

      5. The police are more militarized than ever. Profiling is much increased. Racial, political, and
      socially based profiling is getting worse. More Intrusive recognition technology.

      6. More centralization of traditionally racist-political agencies like the FBI , DHS and their satellite agencies. Intelligence agencies like The CIA and NSA spy as much domestecally now under Trump than they did when the whole shitshow was started by the protofascist Bush with the Patriot act.

      7. Freedom of religion and a woman’s right to choose. More states are banning womens right to choose. Trump and Pence have openly stated their support of Federal laws banning women’s rights to choose.

      8. Possible complete loss of Relligious freedom, by allowing Trump and congress to harrass the PRO-BDS members of congress . Trumps regime made flood and disaster victims pledge fealty to Israel, before they could get FEMA funds.
      Tlaib and Ihan harrassed and banned in israel

      9. Taxation without representation taxing the middle class to death while ending all taxation of Billionairs, Corporations and the top 10 percent.

      Trump eliminated federal tax breaks for middle class and other small-time property owners, at a time when property taxes are at an all time high in america . At a time, when middle class-working people are struggling to survive.

      10. More taxation without representation Trump and its cronies have actively deregulated the nuclear and chemical poisoning industries, at the publics expense. They insure higher medical expenses and bailout expenses for industry at taxpayer expense.

      11. More military spending on useless nuclear weapons that poison its citizenry of america

      12. Illegal subsidization of nuclear power plants on the brink of meltdowns.

      13. Much increased subsidization of the petroleum industries and petrochemical industries.

      14. Subsidization of huge monopolistic Agricultural and GMO companies through NAFTA and international tarrifs that hurt small farmers and help large Agricultural monopoplies.

      15. The Arrest of Julian Assange and tergeting of journalists by this lying fasicist president.

      16. The targeting of elected Cogresswomen for violence from Trumps fascist followers.

      17. The calling of violence against people of differing political opinions, teachers, women, people of different ethnic groups, disabled people, poor people, refugee children and calling for violence against them by this garbage mouthed lying fascist jerk and its violent followers.

      18. The weekly mass shootings by violent white supremacists that are openly given thumbs up by this violent, lying, openly racist garbage mouthed thing that is posing as a president

      19. Failure to insure and secure Voting integrity and Democratic Electikn Process.
      -More corporate and dark money in politics
      -Lack of voting intergrity in easily manipulated corporate electronic voting machines
      -More Gerrymandering
      -More purging and restrictions on who can vote with selective id laws

      20. Reinstitution of a Federal Death Penalty

      21. Several laws restricting citizens from sueing the federal government and corporations for federal and corporate malfeasance


    • When the people who make immense profits off war are so powerful (and control the White House via Bolton and Pompeo – as well as controlling the corporate media), I suppose we can’t really expect otherwise Sha’Tara.
