China About To Cut Another Chunk Off Of India

Posted by Larry Barnes on May 21, 2010

Manipur’s lifeline, two key highways linking this north-east Indian state to the rest of the country have been blocked by supporters of Maoist, Thuingaleng Muivah, who heads the NSCN (IM). “I’m trying to buy some rice,” says Sobita Devi Maibam. “But they’re telling us stocks are low because of the blockade. And prices are sky-high now.” From BBC reports.

Muivah stayed in China for a fairly long time, his first trip, between 1967 and 1973. He holds that “this is the way towards a better society. We run our institutions based on revolutionary principles and the people’s desires – although in many ways there are shortcomings and weaknesses”.

Muivah, has been barred from his village located inside Manipur because the government there fears he will stir up ethnic passions, a vital tool to the Maoist insurgency. “Chairman Mao’s words are gospel truth” he has said. Confusing his recruits and the outside world are essential to his gaining personal power.

Muivah has said “we are talking with the government of India. As long as the political problem is approached politically, there is nothing to fear. But when one lacks the will that is required to bring about the solution, it is most unfortunate”. This is no doubt a show of confidence in his ability to achieve capitulation from the Indian government and an extension of the “fight, talk, fight” philosophy. “War will be a continuation of politics by other means.”

“The adversaries would do their best to exploit the situation, to stamp out the revolution. But the people do not easily abandon the cause. Both the masses and the revolutionary cadre cannot afford to perish”, he has said, proving his devotion to Maoist dogma. With the financial backing from Maoist China “power with which rulers unscrupulously suppress the right of the people must be crushed.”

“Nehru insisted on recognizing China’s “rights” in Tibet despite the pleas of the Tibetans, along with many Indians, that he weigh in against this new form of Chinese hegemony. His appeasement of the “New China” came back to haunt him in 1959 when Mao, having disposed of the Dalai Lama and his followers, began building military roads right up to the existing Indian-Tibetan border, and then ordered troops to cross over into India.

Chairman Mao initially supported Maoist-style Communist parties in Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan, Burma, India and Thailand. The Malaysian Communist Party launched an armed rebellion, which the Chairman supported until it became clear that the guerrillas were losing. Mao was encouraging indigenous Communist movements among the “bridge compatriots” of Southeast Asia.” ( http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/individualProfile.asp?indid=2073 )

“Over the years, the NSCN-IM has developed extensive linkages both within India and outside, and has also been receiving substantial assistance from neighbouring countries. The form of this assistance ranges from supply of arms and ammunition and other logistical support, to provision of safe havens, camping and training facilities. Till 1971, the US was a major provider of arms, finance and intelligence. The erstwhile East Pakistan had also provided assured supplies of money and arms, Till the late 1980s, China also provided support to the organisation. Pakistan’s Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) now provides a large component of finance, arms and logistic support to the NSCN-IM.

The [NSCN-IM] has linkages with the Naga groups operating in Myanmar, and drug trafficking from Myanmar is a major source of income.” ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NSCN#Linkages )

Portions of an interview with Thuingaleng Muivah:

KY: How do you view the present situation vis-à-vis the pre-ceasefire years?

TM: Nothing can be taken as a certainty. Yes, we are talking with the government of India. As long as the political problem is approached politically, there is nothing to fear. But when one lacks the will that is required to bring about the solution, it is most unfortunate. It would be as dangerous as taking comfort in an illusion. War will be a continuation of politics by other means.

The adversaries would do their best to exploit the situation, to stamp out the revolution. But the people do not easily abandon the cause. Both the masses and the revolutionary cadre cannot afford to perish. The only way available to them to survive is to rectify their mistakes and regenerate themselves together as a people. India has left no stone unturned to wipe out the Nagas and the force of their nationalism. The policy they are now resorting to is to wear us out by protracted design. But the Nagas know that their salvation does not lie in India.

Whether in war or peace, every organisation and human being must have ethics, for without ethics human being become worse than animals, which is against the law of creation. It hurts the conscience of society and people. In any war, killing innocent people is totally unjust, the greatest crime against humanity. For example, right from the inception of our resistance movement we have rarely used anti-personnel mines, because innocent people often become victims.

KY: How would you justify choosing to articulate the Nagas’ desire through the language of violence and military action?

TM: The Nagas could understand the danger of being suppressed. To the Nagas, freedom is more important than anything else. Freedom, for the Nagas, means that they themselves would decide their fate. This is the most decisive issue for every nation. When that freedom is given up, the Nagas know that their rights of existence are gone forever.

The BBC reports that Thuingaleng Muivah heads the NSCN (IM), and fails to report on the the NSCN-K led by S S Khaplang. They also fail to point out NSCM (IM) has only existed since they split in April of 1988. The BBC still claims that they were carrying out India’s longest-running insurgency until a ceasefire in 1997.

“The National Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN) was formed on January 31, 1980 by Isak Chisi Swu, Thuingaleng Muivah and S.S. Khaplang opposing the ‘Shillong Accord’ signed by the then NNC (Naga National Council) with the [Indian government]. Later, differences surfaced within the outfit over the issue of commencing a dialogue process with the Indian Government and on April 30, 1988, the NSCN split into two factions, namely the NSCN-K led by S S Khaplang, and the NSCN-IM, led by Isak Chisi Swu and Thuingaleng Muivah.” ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NSCN#Formation )

The BBC can claim “It is not an easy job in a region which is not only racked with separatist violence but is also a frontier to south-east Asia, where India is competing for influence with China”, and ignore the hegemony of Maoist China. The world needs to be reminded of Mao’s map of China and the fact that China’s current government is seeking military expansion and has not repudiated Mao’s dream.

“But with the growing influence of China in Burma and other parts of Asia, India has reason to worry. This is after all critical to its strategic defense”. “If the north-east becomes a separate region, the Indian heartland is completely exposed.” BBC

If, as the BBC reports, “The north-east has often felt politically and culturally cut-off from India, untouched by the country’s economic boom”, and a “massive military presence”, has “furthered”, a “sense of alienation.” The world needs to ensure that the goals of communism will be not furthered by expounding upon the claims and not the roots of “revolutionary” movements.

This view of the current situation is in response to a BBC article (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/8694107.stm) Road blockade chokes Indian state’s lifeline, which is just, in the majority, an attempt to mitigate the damage done by the recent death of 35 Indians murdered in an attack on a civilian bus.

Chairman Mao Murders Thirty People In India

Posted by Larry Barnes on May 18, 2010

It is evident that the evil Mao has spawned is alive and well after a land mine attack in Chhattisgarh state killed more than 30 people. The civilians killed in were not accidental victims of an errant attack. This is the tactics that Mao learned, used and espoused.

Most of those killed in Monday’s blast, which destroyed a bus, were civilians, and the government is under pressure to take a tougher line against the rebels.

The Indian government is thought to want to include the use of air power to fight the Maoists. Thousands have died in the their decades-long fight against humanity and the Indian state.

In this incident it appears that Maoist supporters saw that armed police were on board the bus, and an attack was organized extremely quickly. It is clearly an attack against a target that violates the law of necessity and proportionality. Anything from the BBC, no. But the Indian government says it also demonstrates their barbarity.

“I took to the cabinet committee the case for a larger mandate. I was given a limited mandate. Now we will go back to the cabinet committee to revisit that mandate,” Mr Chidambaram told the NDTV channel.

He said the chief ministers of some of the worst-affected states had asked for air power to be used against the rebels reports the BBC, a measure that the government has so far refused to sanction.

“Operation Green Hunt” began last October, it involves 50,000 members of the police and militia troops and is taking place across five states in India: West Bengal, Jharkhand, Bihar, Orissa and Chhattisgarh.

Monday’s attack on the bus in Chhattisgarh state’s Dantewada district has prompted widespread anger and the BBC is doing its best to stamp it out. As the BBC points out, the Maoists have warned civilian bus companies not to transport local police or members of the security forces. This, in the eyes of the BBC, and hopefully yours, makes the Maoists less evil.

The Maoists support has been slipping away from the rebels, particularly after last month’s attack.

Manmohan Singh described by Prime Minister the Maoist insurgency as the country’s biggest internal security threat. The communist inspired BBC would be described by me as number two. Delhi have accept that there is a need to tackle the root causes of the rebellion, such as poverty and the absence of effective local government, but not yet the media that throws gas on the fire.

Chairman Mao initially supported Maoist-style Communist parties in Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan, Burma, India and Thailand. The Malaysian Communist Party launched an armed rebellion, which the Chairman supported until it became clear that the guerrillas were losing. At the Bandung Conference, a conciliatory Zhou Enlai declared that those Chinese who adopted another nationality should be good citizens of the countries they joined. But this pious statement did not completely allay suspicions that Mao was encouraging indigenous Communist movements among the “bridge compatriots” of Southeast Asia.

Nehru insisted on recognizing China’s “rights” in Tibet despite the pleas of the Tibetans, along with many Indians, that he weighed in against this new form of Chinese hegemony. His appeasement of the “New China” came back to haunt him in 1959 when Mao, having disposed of the Dalai Lama and his followers, began building military roads right up to the existing Indian-Tibetan border, and then, in early September, ordered troops to cross over into India.

Mao’s aggression took Nehru completely by surprise, which is perhaps less a consequence of his naiveté than of Zhou Enlai’s sophisticated sales pitch about the two countries being fellow victims of the Western imperial powers. The Chinese premier had first visited him in New Delhi in April 1954, stopping over on his way back to China from the signing the Geneva peace accord on Indochina. Zhou played the second international stratagem to the hilt, portraying the PRC as a country with impeccable anti-colonialist, anti-imperialist credentials, a country that was a natural member of the Third World club. Nehru agreed.

An Indian delegation at the U.N. had argued on behalf of Communist China’s admission. On that very day that the Chairman sent Chinese forces pouring across the border into India. As Nehru pondered Mao’s perfidy, PLA troops continued their march southward, seizing two important mountain passes that guard approaches to Sikkim and India.

Professor John K. Fairbank of Harvard, for example, wrote in the Atlantic Monthly in 1957 that the regime’s controls over “prices, person and minds, mobilizing of patriotic youth, collectivizing the rural economy and pushing of industrialization” were “remarkable successes” and great achievements.” Not a word about the Maoist terrors that now held the Chinese people in a grip of fear, nor about Mao’s larger aims.

CIA: China Purges Communists Who Have Fallen Out of Favor

Posted by Larry Barnes on March 20, 2010

On the 16th session of the 13th National People’s Congress held on Feb. 26, 2010, Ma Zhenchuan was removed from his office as Director of the Beijing Public Security Bureau. Simultaneously, Wu Yuhua was removed from his office as Director of the Bureau of Justice in Beijing. In the meeting, new procuratorates of eight counties in Beijing were appointed. This is a rare maneuver in the system of Public Security and Justice in Beijing. It is said to be an important step by Hu Jingtao and Wenjiabao’s administration to solve the problems in the political and justice system controlled by Zhou Yongkang.

The Ministry of Public Security in China, in name, is an agency subordinate to the State Department. In fact, the Chinese Communist Party’s system of Public Security, Procuratorate, and Courts is under the control of the Communist Party’s Central Political and Legal Committee, hence controlled by Luo Gan and Zhou Yongkang, two major agents of Jiang Zemin. It is almost a separate kingdom, the darkest of the dark in the Communist Party. Some netizens have said, “Premier Wen Jiabao can handle the financial crisis, but is helpless in front of the police abusing their power.”

The most infamous power abuse in the system of Public Security, Procuratorate, and Courts is in Beijing. They conduct massive arrests, suppress human rights activists and victims who seek to appeal for justice by visiting government agencies. During the period of the Beijing Olympics and the National Day Celebration, methods of state terror were adopted in Beijing to maintain the so called stability. It has largely damaged the civil and harmonious image that Hu Jintao and Wen Jiabao are trying to establish.

Wu Fan, Chief Editor of China Affairs, told the reporter from Sound of Hope International Radio Station in an interview, “The Central Political and Legal Committee is in charge of the system of Public Security Police, Justice, Procuratorate, and armed police. But its main purpose is to maintain their power, control the people, and suppress them. At present, Hu Jintao’s goal is to target some of the corrupted officials subordinate to this committee.”

Since the beginning of last year, Hu Jintao and Wen Jiabao’s administration started to investigate the high ranking officials in the Ministry of Public Security, the Supreme Court, and other high ranking officials in the legal system, through the cases of Huang Guangyu, the richest man in China, and the case of Wang Yi, former deputy director of China’s National Development Bank. They removed from office the chief commander and political commissar of the Armed Police Force in Beijing.

Since March of last year, there have been rumors about Ma Zhenchuan, Director of Beijing Public Security Bureau, being investigated. There were many other people in the Public Bureau under investigation, including Zheng Shaodong, the assistant Secretary of the Ministry of Public Security and the Bureau Chief of the Financial Crime Investigation Bureau, Xiang Huaizhu, Deputy Bureau Chief of the Financial Crime Investigation Bureau, and Yu Bing, Director of Internet Monitoring Department of Beijing Public Security Bureau.

According to the book, China’s Black Gold, distributed in Hong Kong, Wen Jiabao’s order to arrest Huang Guangyu and Zheng Shaodong was like an earthquake, shocking the public security departments. It is a case involving many high profile representatives at the level of department director in the Shanghai Public Security Bureau, Beijing Public Security Bureau, Guangdong Provincial Public Security Department and Liaoning Provincial Public Security Department. The investigation prompted an immediate reaction from the Ministry of Public Security, who, in turn, arrested several subordinates of Wen Jiabao.

Ma Zhenchuan was the Commander in Chief for the Olympic Security Commanding Center in Beijing. During the time he was being investigated, Ma continued to make appearances in public, as if to demonstrate his power.

The one who assumed Ma Zhenchuan’s position as Director of Beijing Public Security Bureau is Fu Zhenghua, the former deputy director of Beijing Public Security bureau. Fu is also under investigation for covering He Yang, also known as He Gangqiang. The latter is suspected to have illegally embezzled capital and property of China’s Rail Road Transportation Company.

Wu Yuhua, who was removed from his position as Director of the Bureau of Justice of Beijing, was reported to the State Audit Bureau by Li Jinsong, a lawyer from Beijing, for embezzlement of tens of millions yuan (Chinese currency).

Lawyers from Beijing, including Li Subin, Yang Huiwen, Xie Yanyi, Teng Biao, and Tang Jitian, also reported Wu Yuhua, Director of the Bureau of Justice of Beijing and Li Dajin, Director of Beijing Lawyers’ Association, for extorting money from lawyers in the process of registration and annual audit. The registration fee, administration fee, and association fee that they collected amounts to more that one billion yuan.

On March 12, 2009, Li Subin, along with other nine lawyers in Beijing, jointly filed a criminal law suit against Wu Yuhua, director of Bureau of Justice of Beijing. On March 13, the Yitong Law Firm where Li Jinsong and Li Subin belonged, was ordered to suspend their business and rectify their operation by Haidian District Bureau of Justice in Beijing. Another reason they drew this kind of suppression was that they have called for direct election in the Lawyers’ Association.

Lawyer Li Subin said, “If those with whom the lawyers have some trouble are the so called brothers of the corrupted officials, they will jointly suppress the lawyers. They are extremely hateful toward those who called for direct election and democracy. They are also quite afraid of them. Therefore, they will immediately suppress such lawyers, trying to suffocate them as quickly as possible. ”

At present, the reform promoted by Hu Jintao and Wen Jiabao in the legal and justice system has touched the roots of the corrupted political and legal system headed by Zhou Yongkang. On Feb. 22, 2010, the article in People’s Daily, the mouthpiece newspaper controlled by Jiang Zemin and his gang, said in rebuttal, “It is doomed to fail for blindly copying the justice system of the west. ”

Guo Guoding, the human rights lawyer in exile, said, “The corrupted system of justice will naturally lead to the corrupted judges who would conduct a mistrial and give a wrong verdict in many cases in exchange for their own benefits. That is why there are millions of people visiting higher government offices every year in China. The whole country has no trust in the law, nor do they have trust in the judges or the legal system. That’s why there are so many visits. It is a vicious cycle, getting worse and worse, till the Chinese Communist Party reaches its doom. ”

In addition, according to a report from WOIPFG (World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong), the Director of Beijing Public Security Bureau Ma Zhenchuan was also in charge of the operation to persecute Falun Gong in Beijing. Under the name of security for the Olympics, he illegally arrested many Falun Gong practitioners. The Director of Bureau Justice of Beijing Wu Yuhua was in charge of the administration of the prisons and labor camps in Beijing. He is directly responsible for the wide spread torture and killing of Falun Gong practitioners in the prisons and labor camps. At the same time, Wu Yuhua is also one of the people responsible for the persecution of lawyer Gao Zhisheng.

China’s Military Capabilities Continue to Grow

Posted by Larry Barnes on March 25, 2009

By Jim Garamone
American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, March 25, 2009 – Transformation of the Chinese military has gained speed, but U.S. officials would like to see China become more transparent about military and security affairs, according to a report to Congress released today.

The Defense Department report, called “Military Power of the People’s Republic of China,” provides some new details, “but there are no new, major strategic insights revealed or capabilities revealed,” Pentagon Press Secretary Geoff Morrell said today.

In the report, officials said that Chinese transparency has improved over the past year, “but much remains to be learned about China’s national and military strategies, progress and trends in its military modernization, and the related implications for regional security and stability.”

China’s increased military ability stems from the nation’s emergence as an economic superpower. With 8 percent per year economic growth, the Chinese have been able to invest significant sums in military modernization.

Morrell said the United States continues to ask for “more dialogue and transparency in our dealings with the Chinese government and military, all in an effort to reduce suspicions on both sides.”

The Chinese still look at transparency as “a transaction to be negotiated.” U.S. officials would like the Chinese to see transparency as a responsibility that accompanies the accumulation of national power. Without this transparency, conclusions in the report are subject to best guesses by U.S. experts.

To begin, the Chinese need to be more transparent in budgeting, the report says. The People’s Liberation Army budget has more than doubled since 2000 — from $27.9 billion to $60.1 billion. Officials believe the Chinese are underreporting the amount they spend on security. The real budget in 2008 is probably between $105 billion and $150 billion.

The limited transparency might even be dangerous and could contribute to instability. The Chinese reluctance creates uncertainty and increases the potential for misunderstanding and miscalculation. “The United States continues to work with our allies and friends in the region to monitor these developments and adjust our policies accordingly,” the report says.

Chinese military capabilities have increased tremendously. People’s Liberation Army officials have invested in the acquisition of advanced foreign weapons, and they have fueled hothouse growth in domestic defense industries. The Chinese military also has poured money into research and development. On top of this, there is a far-reaching organizational and doctrinal reform of the People’s Liberation Army.

“China’s ability to sustain military power at a distance remains limited, but its armed forces continue to develop and field disruptive military technologies, including those for anti-access/area-denial, as well as for nuclear, space and cyber warfare, that are changing regional military balances and that have implications beyond the Asia-Pacific region,” the report says.

China continues to put military pressure on Taiwan. “China’s armed forces are rapidly developing coercive capabilities for the purpose of deterring Taiwan’s pursuit of de jure independence,” the report says. More advanced missiles, more equipment and better-trained troops have deployed to the military regions opposite the island. The military balance in the region continues to shift in Beijing’s favor, the report says, and Taiwan no longer enjoys “air dominance” over the Taiwan Straits.

The capabilities the Chinese are putting in place “could in the future be used to pressure Taiwan toward a settlement of the cross-Strait dispute on Beijing’s terms while simultaneously attempting to deter, delay or deny any possible U.S. support for the island in case of conflict,” the report says.

Some of the Chinese capabilities have allowed the military to contribute to peacekeeping operations, humanitarian assistance, disaster relief and counter-piracy. “However, some of these capabilities, as well as other, more disruptive ones, could allow China to project power to ensure access to resources or enforce claims to disputed territories,” the report says.

The Chinese assert that the People’s Liberation Army is purely defensive in nature, and aimed solely at protecting China’s security and interests. “Over the past several years, China has begun a new phase of military development by beginning to articulate roles and missions for the PLA that go beyond China’s immediate territorial interests,” the report says. But these statements have not cleared up international community questions about the purposes and objectives of the PLA’s evolving doctrine and capabilities.

China has modernized its intercontinental ballistic missile arsenal with the deployment of DF-31 and DF-31A missiles, the report says. They also are readying to launch a new class of ballistic missile submarines soon.

The Chinese military has worked to develop anti-access and area-denial weapons, the report says. This capability goes beyond the nation’s borders. China has developed the capability to hold surface ships, including aircraft carriers, at risk. The weaponry includes quiet submarines, advanced anti-ship cruise missiles, wire-guided and wake-homing torpedoes, or anti-ship ballistic missiles. They are working to deny use of shore-based airfields, secure bastions and regional logistics hubs via conventional ballistic missiles with greater ranges and accuracy, and land-attack cruise missiles.

The Chinese also can project air power using new advanced aircraft, advanced long-range surface-to-air missile systems, air surveillance systems and ship-borne air defenses, the report says. China’s space-based reconnaissance and positioning are leading to a precision-strike capability.

China still lags in developing an amphibious and airborne capability, airborne, air-to-air refueling, at-sea replenishment and in joint integration, the report says.

USNS Impeccable Harassed

Posted by Larry Barnes on March 9, 2009

WASHINGTON – Five Chinese vessels shadowed and aggressively maneuvered close to the USNS Impeccable in the South China Sea yesterday, a senior Pentagon official said today.

The U.S. oceanographic ship was 70 miles south of Hainan Island conducting routine operations in international waters when the ships approached, Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman said.

“We view these as unprofessional maneuvers by the Chinese vessels and violations under international law to operate with due regard for the rights and safety of other lawful users of the ocean,” Whitman said.
A civilian crew mans the ship, which operates under the auspices of the Military Sealift Command.

The incident began as the ships surrounded the Impeccable and two craft closed to within 50 feet, Whitman said. The Chinese ships included a Chinese navy intelligence collection ship, a Bureau of Maritime Fisheries patrol vessel, a State Oceanographic Administration patrol vessel and two small Chinese-flagged trawlers.

Crewmen aboard the Impeccable used fire hoses to spray one of the vessels as a protective measure. The Chinese crewmembers disrobed to their underwear and continued closing to within 25 feet.

The Chinese vessels dropped pieces of wood in the water directly in the Impeccable’s path, and two of the ships stopped directly in the U.S. vessel’s path, forcing it to stop.

Whitman said the Chinese used poles in an attempt to snag the Impeccable’s towed acoustic array sonars. Impeccable’s master used bridge-to-bridge radio circuits to inform the Chinese ships in a friendly manner that it was leaving the area and requested a safe path to navigate.

“These are dangerous close maneuvers that these vessels engaged in,” Whitman said.

The incident was the culmination of earlier harassment. A Chinese patrol vessel shined a high-intensity spotlight March 4 on the USNS Victorious operating in the Yellow Sea 125 miles from China’s coast. Chinese maritime aircraft “buzzed” the ship 12 times March 5.

A Chinese frigate crossed the bow of the Impeccable at a range of about 100 yards March 5. Maritime aircraft buzzed the ship after that incident.

Another Chinese ship challenged Impeccable over bridge-to-bridge radio March 7, calling its operations illegal and directing the American ship to leave the area or “suffer the consequences,” officials said.

The Impeccable is one of six surveillance ships that gather underwater acoustical data, Whitman said. U.S. ships routinely operate in the area.

“We expect Chinese ships to act responsibly and refrain from provocative activities that could lead to miscalculation or a collision at sea, endangering vessels and the lives of U.S. and Chinese mariners,” a Defense Department official said.

U.S. embassy officials lodged a protest against these actions with the Foreign Ministry in China, and Defense Department officials have protested with the Chinese embassy here.
