Let's see...We created Bangladesh. Without us, they would still be getting brutalized by Pakistani Army for speaking Bengali and not Urdu. Now about SL. The reason why LTTE was created was because SL allowed Pak ships to be refueled during wartime with us and also allowed US stations during cold war against us. Funny you say that after the anger you share with Koreans and Japanese for doing something similar. You are most welcome to try. Your carrots seem to be going really sour since SEA countries seem to be approaching us more despite your generous "presence" among them. Come on, whom are you kidding mate? As a big player you know the truth and we know the truth. This is something you won't be able to deny: - Pakistan: A straight highway into middle east for your goods to go through. Nothing more, nothing less. A failed state wrought with terrorism both for itself and for the entire region, the country has nothing to offer you except maybe some rich raw mineral resources for your mining companies. Your CCP bosses know damn well that no amount of infrastructure will be ever productive in a country that is neck-deep in fundamentalist lunacy. Your leaders also know that none of the soft loans you extend to them will ever return to China in total principle amount terms. So you're leveraging strategically. That is all. Nothing brotherly here. It is just that emotionally imbalanced Pakistanis fall head-over heels for you that's all. And the Dragon knows how to exploit an emotionally immature and imbalanced population like that. Nepal 2 things: Cultivation of Communist terrorism and fundamentalism and containing both us and Tibetan refugees who flood into India through Nepal. They are neither culturally linked to you (they are, to us) nor any emotional or ideological support. CCP mantra: grab de-ranged lunatics like Prachanda, feed him and control the nation. Nepal, unfortunately for you, isn't that simple. Bangladesh Exploit their Hindu/Buddhist hatred. The tensions between us and that failed state is that they are over populated and fundamentalist and have nothing good to do in their country. So they come flooding here. We tell them but they don't listen so we shoot them. You find this a perfect wedge. Of course, opportunism is not bad and is strategically good. Sri Lanka Same old ASEAN formula: create a stooge, feed him and get him to wield tyrannical powers so that he can continue to be loyal to you. Just like what USA does. But remember, by taming these nations against us, you are simply losing a much better prospective partner who is strong enough to be independent, is not a drain on your resources and has an ancestral relationship: us. Remember, failed states like Pakistan and Bangladesh are going to fall. But only you are losing the benefit of our friendship for these who have no use to you.
