Beijing Will Conquer Taiwan By 2025, India’s Arunachal Pradesh By 2040 — Experts in china

INTERNATIONAL: China has yet again been seen delving on how to capture the adjacent territorial land, this phenomenon is not an unprecedented matter of talk when it transpires from the Dragon's mouth. The flame has been blazing for ages which have hitherto succeeded in grasping the attention of the new world order, especially during the post-Tibetan invasion. This article is particularly based on one such ablazing fume of concern pertaining to China's mission of invading Arunachal Pradesh which they term as "South Tibet".
What's exactly the Reality ?
The article published in 2013 by the Chinese website Sohu is going viral on social media. The article explains how Beijing will settle the score with their neighbors and re-conquer lost territories which include Taiwan and India. It may be relevant even today, when “mighty China” has been at loggerheads with the tiny island of Taiwan, and other neighbors, including India, Japan, the Philippines, Vietnam among others over territorial disputes.
China has several state-owned media organizations, which more or less serve as Beijing’s mouthpiece. In addition, there are scores of private media companies, including digital ones, that also have been serving the Chinese Communist Party’s interest by running news, opinion, commentaries in favor of the government for decades. However, Sohu is a Beijing-based online media, search engine, and game service company that has promoted Chinese government propaganda for years. The tech company was selected as the official sponsor of Internet Content Service for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games.
How does the Article tend to define invasion of Territorial land?
The article raised the need for a war to unify Taiwan with mainland China. It said China must send an ultimatum to Taiwan by 2020 to choose peaceful unification or war.
The likely case, the author wrote, would be a full-scale war with Taiwan. But of course, China need not worry! Without the US or Japan’s intervention, winning this war would be a 3-month ordeal for the mighty PLA.
And with their intervention, it’d last, perhaps till 2025, when, of course, the ferocious Chinese military would return as the victor, the noted.
South China Sea (2025-2030)
After “conquering” Taiwan, China will take a much-deserved two-year rest. Soon, it will send yet another ultimatum to the countries surrounding the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea.
The “news” article considered a deadline of 2028 appropriate for this ultimatum. After that, the country will go on “re-conquesting” these islands.
The article expects minimal resistance from South East Asian countries who will, quite obviously, still be shivering due to China’s military prowess shown in Taiwan.
The US, having learned a hard lesson from whatever intervention it tried to do in Taiwan, would not directly confront China, but egg on countries, most likely the Philippines and Vietnam.
Southern Tibet (2035-40)
The “reconquest” of Southern Tibet, a term Beijing uses to denote India’s Arunachal Pradesh that shares a border with Tibet. The article presents an analysis of potential military dealings that India would have with China’s adversaries like the US and Europe.
It suggests that the most efficient strategy would be to incite the disintegration of India – the country that has to date survived all its secessionist movements since its independence. But if that doesn’t work, the second-best option is to incite India-Pakistan’s fight over Kashmir, and take over Southern Tibet while India is distracted.
Further in the article, the invasion of other hotspot regions like "Senkaku Island, outer Mongolia, and Russia had been mentioned, which reflected that those regions shall be under the radar and be conquered by the year 2060.
Can it Really Happen?
It would need a God's speed and strength to conquer such vast land , the article pertaining to the PLA's strategy and plan of invasion seems quite bogus. State propaganda is still filling China’s cyberspace. Sometimes it’s to control the populace, and sometimes to boost trust in the country’s military might.
India's External Minister and China's Foreign Minister had exchanged smooth words of tranquility and peace recently, therefore such an article from the Chinese side seems completely impractical.
On Sep 12 the Eurasian times quoted, "Needless to say, the hypothesis presented by the author borders on fantasy, which could, at best, be adapted into a comic book or video game"
Overlooking at the article, still one cannot deny the fact that the presence of the Chinese level of growth is being felt enormously and India should not underestimate its counterpart and should focus more on nation-building.
