    US may block Malacca Strait to contain China: Huanqiu|Politics|News|WantChinaTimes.com


    Huanqiu, the website of China's nationalistic tabloid Global Times, translated a piece from US military newspaper Stars and Stripes which details the Air-Sea Battle tactics proposed by the US military and another less-aggressive strategy that aims to block China's economic access to the Strait of Malacca.

    The tactics were tested by the US military during the Valiant Shield exercise held in the western Pacific Ocean in mid September this year. They were described as concepts rather than a strategy, aimed at increasing the military's "anti-access, area-denial" capability and enabling them to reenter international waters and airspace if they were blocked. Although the US defense department carefully left China out of its 2013 summary of the tactics, they were considering a measure to contain China's increasing hostility.

    TX Hamas, a retired Marine colonel and a researcher at National Defense University, argued that the tactics failed to recognize that the US military cannot find and attack China's solid-fueled missiles and mobile missile launchers in time and that the tactics could ultimately lead to a nuclear war. He proposed blocking China's access to the Malacca Strait to minimize conflict with China.

    It would take only 13-15 Marine teams to keep 800 Chinese ships from importing or exporting goods through Chinese ports in the Strait of Malacca, said the researcher, who thinks the measures could effectively "strangle" China but allow the Chinese Communist government not to lose face. He argued that Beijing will buckle because the country will "need the rest of the ocean."

    China's neighbors within the blocked regions will not be happy with the measures, some people argued. Analysts cited by Stars and Stripes said any conflict involving the world's two largest economies is "inherently unpredictable."

    The translated article was ranked the fourth most read piece on Huanqiu after two pieces on Hong Kong's Occupy Central protest and one on a Kunming police officer killed by Vietnamese nationals as of Tuesday afternoon. More than 1,000 Chinese internet users viewed or commented on the article.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi agreed on Tuesday to deepen U.S.-Indian cooperation on maritime security to ensure freedom of navigation in what amounts to a response to China's naval muscle-flexing in Asia.

    • Indian Ocean Region Dialogue: The United States and India plan to hold regular consultations on the Indian Ocean region. These will address maritime security and environmental challenges, protection of sea lanes, disaster management preparedness, and other issues relevant to this region through which two-thirds of the world’s seaborne trade in oil, half of the world’s seaborne container traffic, and one-third of the world’s seaborne bulk cargo transits annually. The dialogue reinforces our common economic and security objectives within regional organizations like the Indian Ocean Rim Association (IORA) and Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multi-Sectoral Technical and Economic Cooperation (BIMSTEC). The United States is an observer at IORA.

    Calling Mr. Xi eleven is funny? The joke is on you Indians, buddy! As a news anchor for a people who is proud of English speaking, not knowing how to read Roman numbers is the most ludacris thing ever! It shows your country is filled with illiterate idiots.

    But then again you people never cease to to amaze the world. If your patrol soldiers all the way up to diplomats can't tell the difference between Jupiter and airplane, and your navy can blow up your own submarine while docked at port, then who else can beat that level of stupidity? ;). Carry on.
