I have recently acquired a pet. It is a Chinese monkey. You will wonder how I got it. It is a special gift for me all the way from China. You will also wonder why I have been chosen for this special gift. Well. I have been airing my thoughts freely on the Chinese ailments on Gunners Shot and @ https://www.gunnershoot.com/china. What I have been airing seems to have tickled Xi’s funny bone. The funny bone is highly sensitive to the truth of China being exposed. It also tells me that I am hitting a mark consistently! Do you know what happens when you tickle Xi’s funny bone? You get ‘re-educated’ in umpteen places where Special Education Centers are set up. These centers are fully designed to make you into communist clone by squeezing the juice out of your you-know-what. China runs a tailor-made course for people from East Turkistan so that they do not even procreate. The curriculum is so classified that even UN hesitated to release the report on these detention centers. China has promised an exclusive university of ‘re-education’ to 23 million Taiwanese when the Island is conquered. China has a rich history of such re-education dating back to the imperial times of the Qings and Mings. However, when China cannot re-educate an old foggy incoherent retired Indian General, who is hitting the mark, he is gifted with a pet monkey! I am privileged to have got one! Why a monkey? They could have easily sent the Virus on a plane like they did with the rest of the world in 2020. But. But. But. India has very good vaccines, and I am inoculated! Ha ha! Also, the Wuhan Virus is not exportable anymore like the rest of Chinese exports. It has returned to its womb to take up permanent residence in China. China could have also sent a fire spewing dragon. However, the fire spewing dragon resembles a sick lizard off late. The monkey is the best available universal alternative.
What are the characteristics of my pet monkey? It is a typical Chinese single child of a rapidly aging society which, kills its female children and imports Pakistani brides and donkeys. I think it is sneaky, around two feet tall with pigtails and eats noodles. To be honest, I do not know its dimensions since my pet monkey is virtual. Ideologically it is fully immersed in communism. It seems to be educated, perceptive, and persistent. It is highly brainwashed and deeply embedded in the party machinery. This pet thinks China is like an orangutan while behaving like a monkey in a drought. It feels China’s only problem is with USA since it is solely ordained by the middle kingdom to displace USA from pole position. It does not know that the Indian equivalent of the Middle Kingdom is the ‘Trishanku Swarg’! Neither here nor there…hanging in mid-air! However, despite posing as an orangutan it could not prevent an 84 year old grandma from landing in Taiwan. That is when I realised that it is only a stupid monkey which knows to shoot its mouth off. This monkey loves bat soup, rat dumplings and snake cuts. The monkey is a spiritual kin to the Virus which the communists deliberately allowed to infect the whole universe. This communist monkey who believes it is an orangutan declared victory over the virus and self-isolated itself the from the world. This riled up the disowned virus. The virus knew that the Chinese vaccines are useless. It jumped the wall and came back with a vengeance to wreak havoc in China. A combination of self-isolation, virus, drought, xiconomics, and overconfidence is dragging the country down.
However all that is lost to my pet monkey since it is designed to carry out counter propaganda and influence operations. How does it do so? It reads all my blogs @ www.gunnersshot.com as they get published and puts out its disruptive comments. It is adept at playing the fastest finger first. It trashes me. It proves that I am anti national, seditious, and ignorant. Its comments always reiterate China’s superiority and affluence over backward and poor India. It coercively and malevolently keeps telling me how strong China is and how its high IQ obese soldiers who are ‘voluntarily conscripted’ will sort out India. It does not have any comprehension of an open democratic society. It treats constructive criticism as being equivalent to dissent. In essence, it denigrates India , Indians and everything we stand for. My monkey is from a country which wants to destroy us. My monkey has a big brain with a small mind full of disdain for anything Indian. Read some of its monkey tricks: –
China would secretly welcome India stepping up engagement with Taiwan because China will have the opportunity to respond by opening up a new secession front against India. If an Indian delegation visits Taiwan, then the Chinese foreign minister will call Simranjit Mann and express support for the Khalistan movement
What ability is there to get Tibetans to rebel? The place is walled off, has a small population, and receives huge subsidies. Khalistan on the other hand has a huge following in Canada and Italy willing to provide financial and political backing and the kindling of disenchanted youth
China has an economy 6x larger than the Indian economy. China is an upper middle income country; India is a poor country. For every billion dollars India spends trying to match a billion dollars spent by China at the border, India suffers 10-20x more damage because of its smaller economy and more pressing needs. The child malnutrition program will need to be cut to pay for importing another squadron of Rafales.
China has a lot going for it, most of all a lot of smart people. India has a lot of overwhelming problems and not many smart people. By the time India reaches a $10 trillion economy, China will be past $70 trillion
It’s a clear indication China has a huge upper middle class. The ratio of Chinese billionaires to Mercedes Benz passenger vehicles sold in the last year in China is excellent and points to a healthy and dynamic economy. There are lots of successful small business owners and middle class professionals in China who can afford a Benz.
Contrast India. Messrs. Ambani and Adani are worth around $100 billion dollars. More wealthy than anyone in China or anywhere else in Asia. There are a few hundred billionaires in India. Mercedes Benz sales in India are paltry, just 11,000 passenger vehicles sold in 2021. Does that sound like a dynamic economy or rampant cronyism?
In China, the economy has stopped growing this year because of lockdowns. Will it roar back next year? Probably. Why would a highly talented country with a long track record suddenly lose capabilities? It’s unhealthy wishful thinking to see a bank run in a province in China and declare China to be on the very of permanent economic collapse. At the same time ignoring data from global multinationals showing a Chinese economy that is in some respects 50x more vigorous than the Indian economy. It smacks of desperation
India is spending a lot more of its limited resources on the military than China. However, the Indian military is woefully underfunded. India lost 20 men at Galwan. China lost 4. The crucial difference was technological inferiority. India did not have helicopters capable of evacuating injured men overnight. Wounded Indian troops froze overnight after splashing into the icy water, some succumbing to exposure and lack of oxygen at the high altitude. India is out of funds and the MOD delays as usual the purchase of the Kamov Ka-226, a high altitude helicopter for casualty evacuation
The average IQ of India is 82. The average IQ in the US and China is around 20 points higher. As there is a linear relationship between soldier performance and IQ, American and Chinese soldiers drawn from the lower half of the population in cognitive ability are significantly better soldier stock than Indian soldiers from the top half of the Indian population in cognitive ability
Chinese military service is technically based on conscription, but it is a requirement that’s been rarely enforced in recent years as plenty of volunteers have stepped forward for spots in the county’s rapidly modernizing forces.
After Taiwan, the speaker flew to South Korea. President Yoon Suk Yeol was at home in Seoul when Pelosi arrived. He did not meet with her, instead held a 40 min phone conversation. South Korea is anxious not to offend China. US is losing influence in Asia.
There is a huge gap between the Indian and Chinese submarine fleets. India has 15 including 7 Kilo class submarines. All of Kilo subs will be retired in the next few years as they are all past service life and catastrophes waiting to happen. China on the other hand operates 6 nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines, 6 nuclear-powered attack submarines and 46 diesel-powered attack submarines. If PLAN has a local base like in Sri Lanka, their subs will become utterly dominant.
If relations deteriorate further with India, then there might be 4 Chinese overseas bases (additional bases in Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Cambodia).
What concession should India be prepared to negotiate to produce a lasting peace treaty with China? The Tawang tract was annexed by India in 1951. Is India prepared to transfer it to China? The boundary issue could be settled comprehensively with the transfer of the Tawang tract.
The general is mentally blocked from seeing problems India will face. A good strategist is able to know thyself and know thy adversary. The general is not a good strategist. He tells people what they want to hear (and what he wants to hear) rather than deliver high quality information and assessments(this is specially for me!).
The Party wishes to continue to rule China now and forever.
Such gems can come from only a well-oiled operation at national level. For those who have not yet got it … it is Influence and Information Operations as part of Communist China’s Three War Strategy. This is how it is executed. Casual chats with others indicated to me that many Indians who expose China’s façade have similar pet monkeys. Those who reveal the truth about China are generally gifted with specially curated and custom made pet monkeys. Hence India should be alive to the fact that there is a systematic method of national monitoring, disrupting, debasing, and countering India’s strategic community. Part of this is to bombard their audiences with alternate facts and ideas based on a mixture of half-truths and full lies so that the speakers / authors are discredited in front of their own readers/ audience/ countrymen. I am sure this extends to other areas also. It could be businesses, media, government etc etc. There is an Orwellian system in place to weaponize information. I am also quite sure China is using all kinds of media to disrupt our society and our national fabric in multiple manners – paid and unpaid. In a highly plural and democratic society like ours, the monkeys which have infiltrated our system and are now resident in it , must have spawned many more local monkeys who will answer to China’s beck and call.
We have always known that the Chinese carry out Influence and Information operations. The recent comments of the Chinese Ambassador in Sri Lanka on India are an extreme form of ‘Wolf Warrior’ Influence Operations. There will be many more forms. Having had a first-hand taste of it, one can visualise the vision and extent of Chinese Influence Operations in India. These will constantly attempt to Influence policy matters to suit their ends. It also confirms that China, will discredit India in any manner since India will sooner or later be its peer competitor. Hence the blatant attempt is to coerce India into bandwagoning and make a deal with China. However how do you do a deal with an untrustworthy nation like China? Make any concession to it and it will ask for more.
I have highlighted China’s modus operandi in my article Chinese Information Operations:Here and Now (@https://www.gunnersshot.com/2022/02/chinese-information-operations-here-and.html). Lt Gen Ata Hasnain in his article Information Threats to India’s Security and Ms Tara Kartha in her article Chinese Inroads Through Influence Operationsdwell on other aspects of this in greater detail. A sum total of this and what I have put across in this narration informs me that India needs to do something about it in an organised manner. I hope someone in the Government of India reads this and does something. In the meanwhile I will continue being entertained by my pet monkey!
PS :- I posted this article on my blog and left it for some time without much publicity. in a matter of minutes the monkey was on the job to post its comment ! You can see the monkeys comment. It is quite unambiguous by its sheer stupidity. If you look into my a few of my previous articles you will see a repetitive persistence about the whole monkey affair.
