Ha ha ha..... Dear Frodo, we've seen how you cry through ur puppet media when Singh and Abe signed the deal..... Keep ur delusion with you and stop crying like a little girl....
O'rly..., if you think Chinese media cry about a single event Singh-Abe diplomacy sugar-ing each other, than your medias are event worst...they cry all day long about us.. As for myself I'm not crying but amused to see Indians here trumpeting the great deal of scoring some diplomatic point over China by cozying Japan and turn out sour grape to figure out how India has being marginalized with bigger issue such G2.
You indians have reputation for self-comforting for the pain that you coundn't swallow such China's progress, more powerfull and more leverage in internation issue than India. you think by playing this "diplomcy cozing game" will really upset China and expect to extract some concession from it?
As for you, you're not only cry but cry-laughting and pretend nothing has happened..you have done a great jobs..keep continue this way.
Peter Lee is not Japanese, he is an American writer that contribute frequently to Asia Times Online. He also put what he writes on his blog China Matters:India Places Its Asian Bet on Japan: Roiling the Waters of the Asia-Pacific :: JapanFocus
Bare in mind this is a Japanese writer.
Think of it as a two pronged power who's combined might neutralizes USA w/o involving yankee sammy. Japs brought outsourcing to China and created economic revolution around 1980s end. Now they're moving to thailand and ASEAN countries as it's cheaper and China's attitude is unstable. Western economy follows width and due to this a debt recession cycle occurs. Japs follow depth and that helps em survive in stagflation also.
True China's power is bigger than India but future lies with us as we control Indian Ocean and world's largest thorium reserves which will make us a regional hegemon when Coal,gas run out in 2030-40. There's a reason why your Li - man came here, no India , no Asia.
I don't know which two powers are you referring to but as for Japan if they decide to move to ASEAN for cheaper labor, it will even better for China, Korea (samsung...) and U.S (apple...) and believe me these compagnies will be even more delighted to see Japan out of China so they can capture a bigger chunk of market for domestic electronic and automobile.
Since the opening in 1980s, we have accumulated enought of wealth to invest abroad such Africa and Latine America, we don't want China to be the cheap labor factory for ever, we want to have a value added to the product and clean environment( air and water), so ASEAN or India want to take over...be our guests.
As for geopolitcal issue, India has advantage over Indian ocean doesn't mean you control it yet, Indian Navy will have a battle proven against China, Europe and U.S to claim as control Indian Ocean. And sorry to bust your bubble...the reginal hegemon resource is not Thorium but Water ..and you know who control it in Asia.
Interesting points from Abe
Abe has forecast that in about a decade Japan-India relations would overtake Japan-China and even Japan-US relations. “I envisage a strategy whereby Australia, India, Japan, and the US state of Hawaii form a diamond to safeguard the maritime commons stretching from the Indian Ocean region to the western Pacific,” he said in this article. - See more at:
What does the Japanese PM mean when he said Japan-India relations would overtake even Japan-US relations ? Interesting.
Of the currently known world thorium reserves, India has a mammoth share - ranging from 25-30% of the total of 1,160 thousand tonnes. Baap se panga nahi lete noodles.
As for water Brahmaputra is important to us but more you play 50c army more you get isolated on International stage which we can use to gain leverage and gain more powerful allies like Japan. For China to compete globally it needs to produce quality products not Huawei phoes. Lenovo is good but needs to go some distance.
India is divulging into R&D as well as manufacturing.(we are in top 5 - 6 in all manufacturing fields.) To be like USA you need to think like USA not some Soviet relic that is replacable like this:
US Rare Earths Inc. moves forward with Montana drilling | MINING.com
Japan breaks China's stranglehold on rare metals with sea-mud bonanza - Telegraph
That means we'll take china and do a 3 some from both ends like in brazz@#$.
That thorium reserve estimate was of 2005,2011 estimate we have 50% of world's thorium reserves.
That and we are also second highest rare earth producer.
