Analysts: Expect Attack From Chinese Military

Posted on January 15, 2012


Analysts are becoming increasingly concerned that China may launch a surprise military attack on India in 2012, based on conditions today that are similar to those present the last time China attacked India – in 1962, says a report from Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.

The concerns center on an ongoing border dispute between the two countries and joint energy projects that India has entered into with Vietnam in areas of the South China Sea which China claims as its own territory.

Even today, China continues to hold onto Indian territory it captured in 1962, and it continues to initiate troop provocations along the disputed border, warning India against taking it back, despite attempts at confidence building measures. The Chinese actions suggest it has no intentions of reaching a peaceful resolution to the confrontation.

According to regional analysts, China claims that the India-China border is 2,000 kilometers long while India asserts that it is 4,000 kilometers. The difference is due to the Chinese challenge to India’s claim over territories from Sikkim to Pakistan Occupied Kashmir, or POK.

The United States has supported India in its claims along the border, something which has added to the tension in relations between the U.S. and China.
