Asia shall rise and so we need to surround ourselves by friendly stable states rather than countries born out of and fed by American State Terrorism...
I wish we were on the same side China and India... China has chosen the wrong approach towards dominance.. they've chosen the path of war!
war that will annihilate not only Asia but Europe and North America as well! think about this.. alliances have been formed..
NATO with Japan, South Korea and Australia against China and Russia + Iran maybe/probably... Puppet States around these power centers shall fall in line accordingly...
Middle East will serve as the supply depo for the west and Africa shall serve this role for Asia this time...
India on the other hand is an anomaly here and a great one I might add.. in the next decade, India probably will maintain this status of non alignment as they say as long as it benefits its interests... though in a situation of total war... I don't see India supporting Chinese hegemonic ambitions..
but seeing India against Russia and Iran, both it's long time strategic allies is hard while on the other hand India as well as states like Israel, France and UK have been coming closer...
this Indian anomaly in the global politics shall be a deciding factor in the power games years ahead...

Author: Ryan Manuel, ANU It ain’t easy being an autocrat. Take China’s current President and Party Secretary, Xi Jinping. Since coming to power Xi has shown himself to be unhindered by former norms of collective decision making, and collective blame.

Economics, Politics and Public Policy in East Asia and the Pacific
Introduction

East Asia Forum provides a platform for the best in East Asian analysis, research and policy comment on the Asia Pacific region and world affairs.
