Are these times of War?
The answer to this question depends upon what you understand with the word ‘WAR’ ? But I am sure there are two definite aspects of a war.
First is an aggressor who may and may not cause the damage but is never apologetic thus is an aggressor.
Second is Death. There is no war without death. Death of Civilians is more true in reality than perception. Civilian always dies unprepared. Soldiers bravely march into death as if death doesn’t exist.
Forgive my hubris, I have waited 117 days to tell this. We are in the midst of 21st Century War. Exactly 117 days ago, I felt that we are at war but nobody said it. So I started writing daily developments in a diary. Now I can say with confidence that we are at war. Each country has it’s own story but I will tell the story from India’s perspective, mostly. However a brief reference to Europe and USA is necessary.
I have narrated in a ten part series on India-China war scenario explaining how the war scene had to be leaked here. While China has moved back it’s troops from three places but it is still adamant at fourth place. As said earlier, it is 21st Century war which no one wants to admit. Why?
The China will not admit that it started any war because it does not want any military retaliation which it has no capacity to face. Search around. I have done and China has old re-engineered war machines which is no match even for India what to speak of USA, the Police Commissioner of the World. For example China builds fighter plane J-17 and Pakistan manufactures it but the Pakistan insist on Russian Engines not the Chinese ones. Other plane J-20 has not flown in any air show and it’s stealth capacity is in serious doubt what to speak of its mach speed.
USA and Europe will not admit that it is a war for the same reason they were saying that “It is just a flue”. They are still in shock that they can be hit that too by their lap dog “China”. Yes. China is their lap dog for decades and their capitalists were using the sweat shops offered by China to exploit it’s population and American/European companies were reaping benefits without any litigation for better conditions in their home turf. Read about this here where I have referred to a book by a USA official in this regard. So Why he did it?
