There is no reason for China to build military base in Pakistan. Pakistan has solid military power that can protect itself, and can work with China to protect common interest of both nations. What China need is just a rest pit for its navy coming back from patrolling in Indian Ocean. I suspect even that is too much for the US to stomach, hence this hype about China building military base in Pakistan.
Russia is a power in decline - economics, demographics & technologicalWe don't have to set up military base in Pakistan. PN has the very ability to protect themself. As long as PLAN can dock and replenish in Pakistan' port during patrol, it's ok for me. The presence of PLAN fleet in IOR will be more frequently as we are churning out battle ships.
Japan as well
Having a military base in Gwadar will damper commercial attractiveness of CPEC. Ladies and gentlemen, PN will have 8 brand new AIP subs with TOT from China in the future. So you guys don't have to worry India. Never give Yankees the excuse to set up military base in India. Let's say, if India allows USA to station on its soil, China and Pakistan will respond acxordingly.
We only set up military base if Pakistan invite us to, or push comes to shove.
If China and USA clashs, Russia will rise. If Russia and USA clashs, China will gain a lot. So who wanna be the loser here of these three? I say no one. India is not playmaker, it's only the chess on the board.
If say China and Russia join hands to bring down USA from the throne, we will be doomed as well. Cause war among the three will be devastating, and Japan and India will rise.
There is no war directly between super powers, it's all proxy war.
If anyone break the rules of the game, then he might have to go to hell.
US Navy can easily blockade GwadarThanks to Gwadar and CPEC, China can now bypass the straights of Malacca and completely nullify Japanese, American & South Korean naval domination and the potential to cause a blockade of China during a conflict. It's for that reason billions are pouring into Pakistan from China with many more billions earmarked for the coming decades. It is in China's interest to see Pakistan become a powerful nation and the Chinese are experts in creating superpowers. The security of China and Pakistan are now intertwined. Our enemies can bark all they like, like the dogs that they are but this does not change this raging reality.
China-Pakistan relationship is not set in stone. USA has not expanded relationship with India. One way to hurt Pakistan is to help India.These blatant revelations serve a purpose. The Americans have finally grasped the reality. At first it was denial. After realizing the massive cooperation between China and Pakistan the Americans were in sour grapes mood. This turned into anger and frustration. Who can forget the daily threats. The Americans have finally reached a stage where they are now acknowledging the Pakistan China cooperation. This is good. America should start accepting the fierce reality.
