    ^^It's game over for the entity called Pakistan if Beijing succeeds in doing this.

    They simply want to safeguard their own interest. They can keep checks on terrorists in Xinjiang using Pak land.

    It is a rather difficult situation for Pakistan. What if Americans want a similar base as well. Only difference with China is that they will go overboard and station 1000 tanks for an offensive against Taliban.

    I don't see how any foreign power would be welcomed in that region (atleast by the residents and local militants). Soviets & Americans have had their taste. Hope China doesn't burn its hands, they have a nasty habit of not being able to control once they start expanding themselves.
    After all its not a stamped vassal state of PoK we're talking about.

    India must negotiate a permanent military base in Vietnam. A naval base as well as an airfield with a squadron of Su 30's stationed. Pay them for it if it comes to that. China has made its intentions quite clear. We have to respond in kind.

    We need a war between India and Pak soon that settles this Pak monkey once and for all. We cannot have the Chinis have a base in GB. Our intel is not doing a good job in Balochistan to help those guys ramp up their insurgency and neither are we helping our people in GB who are suffering under the hands of Paki occupation.

    Talking and diplomacy and chaman ka tamasha is not going to help.

    Difficult and not happening. China shares a land route to Pak via GB. We hav to go long distance by sea and we not capable to that extent yet.

    What we need is to protect our interests there and that can be done with deployments from AnN. Actually MKIs can fly from AnN all the way to spratlys and back with mid air refueling. But stationing assets in foreign land calls for a lot more capability

    No dhoti shivering please.

    Chinese bases in FATA to combat "terrorist operations" there, is the BEST THING from India's POV. The PLA will get involved in tribal feuds and come face to face with real hardcore terrorists like the TTP, the "good Taliban" and sundry others. They will not survive it long. And at the end of it, the Chinese image in Pakistan will take such a huge beating... and as they say, "hell hath no fury like a bitchy woman scorned". So, you will see enraged butthurt Pakis raging and ranting against China. And mark my words, the same people who come rushing up today to suck Chinese c*** will be the most outraged and offended at the end of it.

    If China is ass enough to get into active military operations in FATA, this is the fate that awaits both nations.

    These Paki boot lickers are so desperate for protection they will allow a foreign base on their soil. Just call it Paki-Chin and be done with it.

    I think they would. Once ISAF leaves Afghanistan all hell is going to break loose and Chinese interests in Astan and the near abroad will be threatened. They want a base in the region so they can protect those interests. Pakistan is begging for a Chinese presence as it means any attack on Pak is an attack on China. Same reason Syria begs Russia to build a base there.

    Zardari and Gilani don't really strike me as dedicated patriots to prevent this from happening for a few million Renmibi.

    But if this is to happen, expect ETIM to join TTP and conduct strikes inside Pakistan first. 20 of the world's top-powerful countries plus 36 terrorist organizations holed up inside Pakistan and now ETIM also going berserk; that would be one field day for our soldiers eh? Just grab some easy chairs, popcorn, beer and watch the show. :lol:

    Couldn't agree more on that than this man. I am actually wishing that this happens. It would be one helluva movie show for us. :D

    If the Chinese build a base in FATA, it will be very interesting to watch.

    They will get embroiled in the tribal rivalry and it will be a 'bomb'!

    I really wonder!

    In the Gilgit Baltistan, they have already established their presence in adequate numbers to build military infrastructure, as also, to build the KKH shoring up and the rail and gas links.

    No there is no fun in seeing China setting base and seeing them get embroiled with Jihadi nut jobs as effectively means we say goodbye to GB. Not in our interest to see Chinis there no matter what. Take away chinas client ie Pak and Chini will move out.

    Well you had many masters, starting with the Manchus and the Khanates.

    Should we start?

    Even the western powers kicked you in the teeth and you stood there like zombies lulled by a good does of opium!

    well we have an official language since we do not impose one Culture as you do - Han culture, where you subjugate people so that they are brainwashed to feel they are Hans.

    Guess why you have what is known as simplified Mandarin.

    Because there is no one language in China!

    You like fooling yourself and fooling the world!

    Here is for starts.

    When talking about the Chinese language, there is no such language as Chinese. It is the non-Chinese people who refer to all dialects used in China as Chinese, but for the Chinese people, they have different dialects, and the most common one is the Mandarin dialect and the Cantonese.

    The spoken Chinese and the written Chinese are different. Though there are many regional Chinese varieties, they are all considered to be a single Chinese language for political and social reasons. Mandarin, Wu, Cantonese, Min Xiang, Hakka and Gan are some of the widely used Chinese languages. The different Chinese languages also differ from one region to another. Mandarin is the most widely used language among the Chinese.

    Mandarin is usually referred to as the standard Chinese language. Mandarin is now the most commonly used language in government, education and media. Mandarin is spoken more than the other Chinese languages in the cities. Mandarin is related more to the spoken form, and the written Chinese form is based upon it. In comparison to other Chinese languages, Mandarin has more polysyllabic words. It has also been noted that mandarin has less sounds when compared to other Chinese languages.

    Summary:

    1. It is the non-Chinese people who refer to all dialects used in China as Chinese, but for the Chinese people, they have different dialects, and the most common one is the Mandarin dialect and the Cantonese.

    2. Though there are many regional Chinese varieties, these are all considered to be a single Chinese language for political and social reasons.

    3. Almost all the Chinese languages belong to the same family, and have slight differences.

    4. Mandarin is usually referred to as the standard Chinese language. It is the most commonly used language in government, education and media.

    5. Mandarin is spoken more than the other Chinese languages in the cities.

    6. In comparison to other Chinese languages, Mandarin has more polysyllabic words.

    7. It can also be seen that Mandarin has less sounds when compared to other Chinese languages.
