In its communist incarnation, Beijing has abandoned its Confucian base and applied realistic principles in expansionist ethos. American political scientist John Mearsheimer's Theory of Offensive Realism and the Rise of China of the Realist School explains this phenomenon. Mearsheimer in the Tragedy of Great Power Politics (2001) wrote in detail about the implications of his theories regarding the rise of China.
In 2010, he argued that there is no way to accurately estimate China's current or future intentions, that it is difficult to distinguish between China's defensive and offensive military capabilities, and that the peaceful behavior of China's past is an unreliable future behavior. Is an indicator. According to him, China alone preferred its national power over other countries.
History tells us that this attitude of China itself reminds us of the Han rule of the past, which purposefully expanded its land and culture, affecting many neighboring countries like Korea, Mongolia, Vietnam, and Japan. Through military operations and a series of campaigns, it has now created modern China and North Vietnam.
Military campaigns and Chinese migrants created a culture that blends Chinese traditions with indigenous elements. We have seen the same as the occupation of Tibet. China's expansion from North China to the South reached its zenith during the Han regime. But despite this aggressive and expansionist attitude of Chinese leaders, members of the Communist Party involved in it embraced China and welcomed its presence in the UN Security Council.
We too behaved like the rest of the world and indeed all the governments of India promoted it differently. This was a philosophy that we as the people of India did not want to accept. But China is still viewed from a liberal perspective. His activities in the South China Sea and on our borders did not prepare us to fight his wretchedness, as we saw 'Khushimaji' as the ultimate tool in diplomacy.
And we got caught in his trap. They are knocking at our door and we are bowing down to its pressure. It has infiltrated India's trade and technology in such a way that it is almost impossible to get out of its trap. For the past several decades, he has been continuously investing in NGOs associated with various political parties in the country.
In recent times, there have been reports that party delegations have met members of the Communist Party of China to understand the specifics of cadre construction. It was clarified that he was thoroughly investigated and approved and even supported by various governments.
This explains how strategic vision and security measures were ignored. The Chinese were playing the Mind game with us, and we left ourselves to understand our important interests. We have to play realistic games on every front. First of all, we urgently need to stop them from entering our border, as they increase their activities in Daulat Beg Oldi Sector, Galvan Valley, Pangong Lake and elsewhere.
And we are also doing so. A warning has been issued by the Ministry of External Affairs against any attempt to change the situation on the Line of Actual Control. We do not need to wait for confirmation of their activities, because the Chinese game is difficult to understand and has betrayed our trust. Now we should act on it.
First and foremost, the Indian Navy should start naval exercises along the lines of the Malabar exercise. We did a Malabar exercise with the US, in which Japan also participated. The best place to conduct this would be the sea lanes (sea lanes), from where Chinese mercantile material is diverted to the Chinese ports of 58 percent of China's need through the Malacca Strait from Peru in South America.
This action will eventually disrupt the sugar production capacity previously affected by the virus's effects. Similar target exercises can also be carried out on sea lanes carrying fuels and hydrocarbons, which the Chinese industry is in great need of. The Quadrilateral Regime Group (Quad) also needs to be activated immediately, which includes Australia, Japan and the US along with India.
The aim should be to conduct naval exercises along the lines of the Malabar exercises within the Nine-Dash Line in the South China Sea, to protect sea passage communication from the Chinese Navy, which is also trying to intimidate Vietnam, the Philippines and Indonesia is. All ports in the Southeast Asian region, including Singapore, should be tried through strong diplomatic initiatives to not allow Chinese ships to enter their ports.
It is time to find our friends in ASEAN countries who value our role and friendship. India will have to devise a rapid methodology, conclude and take decisive decisions to break all Chinese contacts from trade, industry, culture and even people. If one thinks that it will not be easy to do this, then one must understand that it is a price that the nation must pay for its sovereignty and independence.
