Asia’s Great Naval Rivalry

On September 6, 2011, in Faculty, Malik, Research, by PAO

To avoid a future clash between China and India, a maritime conference is needed to set some rules. This was the topic of an editorial written by Dr. Mohan Malik in the Wall Street Journal (Sept. 5, 2011).

In the editorial he discusses the “geopolitical chess game” that could intensify as Chinese and Indian navies show off their flags in the Indian and Pacific oceans with greater frequency.

One Response to Asia’s Great Naval Rivalry

  1. David Rimanich Jr says:

    In the future the defense policies founded by General MacArthur will come under challange from the Peoples Republic of China. They are waiting for the right time to start this offensive,just like the NVA did at Tet in 1969 and Mao did at the Chosin Resveroir in the Korean War.Our course of action will be determined by the ability to reinforce our selves and oppose the massive onslaught from the PLA. Our illpreparedness for this conflict can be seen the two hard hitting wars I have cited. The problem is that we dont live and learn from our military blunders.
