Wind war blows in Asia (Il Sole 24 Ore, Italy)

Wind war blows in Asia ("Il Sole 24 Ore", Italy)When we think of Asia, we think about the economy, not the war. When they say "Asian tigers" to recall the country during the 1st generation turned into a massive power that admire and fear are not because of their military capabilities, but because of their economic impact. The real crisis has confirmed this perception: while most developed countries are in economic distress, Asian grow and develop. But in Asia grows not only wealth, amplified and war sentiments. It is understood that war in Afghanistan — this is the longest conflict in modern history. In the past decade, India and Pakistan have gone through two military crises that only thanks to the decisive intervention of third States not turned into an open war. India has developed the military doctrine, which replaced in order to consider only the value of the protection of their own country, put puzzle frisky and clear response against terrorist groups in at least some adjacent area if the threat of terrorism comes from Pakistan.

The purpose of this doctrine, the existence of which India denies avoid that similar tests have provoked the Pakistani nuclear attack that would have forced New Divide counterattack similar same way. It is a question of the ability of the emergence of a nuclear conflict between with 2 very poor countries, public lives fifth of the world's population. India and Pakistan — are not the only Asian nuclear powers, China and Korea are also part of this club. The problem of nuclear weapon possession Asian countries is not only in the fact that there is a risk of the use of nuclear weapons in regional conflicts, and in the export of technology. Pakistan and North Korea are ready to implement a bomb to someone who will offer the best value. North Korea has a million-strong army and armed fighter hundred square meters of missiles aimed at Seoul and other big cities. Just a few months back to South Korea military the ship was sunk by a North Korean missile.

As Keating says Yeshua (Joshua Keating), it seems that Asian sea dotted with an abundance of malehankih islands, territorial identity is disputed by different countries. North Korea disputes with Japan over sovereignty over the islands Liancourt, Japan asks RF Kurils. China and Vetnam Paraselkih quarrel over the islands, which are due in 1974, the Navy 2-state exchanged cannon shots. Of the Spratly Islands claimed by China, Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei. In 1998, the Chinese and Japanese ships were fighting for control of one of these islands malehankih. The result — 70 deaths. Not long ago, a collision between a Japanese tanker and a Chinese fishing boat in disputed waters led to the languid economic pressure from Beijing. You can not ignore the endless territorial claims adjacent states to each other. Armed conflicts inside Asian countries even more frequent and deadly. In Sri Lanka has just completed plainclothes war between the government and the guerrilla organization "Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam", which lasted for 26 years. "Tigers" have introduced the fashion of terrorist suicide. The result — hundreds of thousands dead. East Timor, the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Nepal, Myanmar or Tibet — it's just some "hot spots" of Asia, in any armed conflict, or are a daily reality, or the situation is, in other words, the risk that the conflict will go dormant in the open. Asia is at the head of the list of regions that import tool. Between 2002 and 2009, six of the top 10 countries that buy cannon were Asian countries: China, India, Taiwan, South Korea, Pakistan and Singapore.

And, in the end, China. Its military spending every year grow by 10%. China has the second largest navy in the world, it is assumed that by 2020, its air force will be one of the most massive in the world. In the U.S. report states that "China has a non-long range missiles offense (300 to 600 km), the most effective and deadly in the world." Only in Taiwan aimed more thousands of such missiles. Longish range missiles will be able to act to neutralize all U.S. bases in the Land of the Rising Sun, and Korea, and it seems that China has a tool that can flood all South American carriers. History indicates that when any country significantly increases its military forces, whether adjoining countries (India), or the more distant competitors (United States), China does not remain indifferent and do everything in order not to disrupt the military the balance of power. In the coming years this trend will have on us such as, if not more effective, as well as monetary war, lack of tax and monetary crises.
