CHINA CANCELS GWADAR REFINERY, PIPELINE PLANS
The announcement is a major blow to Pakistan's plans to develop volatile Balochistan province and provides proof to foreign investors that Pakistan is in danger of "failed state" conditions.
For Beijing, the decision to slow or even halt developments at Gwadar is a setback for China's desire for a shorter and safer route for Persian Gulf oil into western China and a potential outlet to emerging markets in the Middle East and Europe for Chinese goods as manufacturing migrates to the Chinese interior.
Overall, the decision to pull out of Gwadar reflects the current financial conditions and the regional instability due to the Obama surge into Afghanistan....
Will Sunshine Patriotic China send a million stupid social workers, grief counselors, and phony soldiers into Afghanistan?
Time to officially kow tow for the limited "thought reform" noddle-eating chicom intelligencia. Patience is an excuse for cowardice.
What would Chairman Mao do?
NATO does not want a large scale conflict & serious war. It horrors the thought of instability in Europe with reinstatement of massive conscription. Maintaining instability in the hellish area with a voluntary force of world policemen is ideal.
China on the otherhand is losing patience, development, money, and Mao credibility with the unique security opperation. Either the asian tiger accept humiliation for decades or muscle 1/4 million cadre into action. lame western public opinion against the war will whine forever like a crippled veteran akwardly in motion.
