China did not attain its status as a world power in less than 40 years by playing up to western expectations. The Chinese are by nature secretive. And when it comes to battle, they are masters of deception. Nothing that China does is for the benefit for any one lese than China.

This whole report by the South China Morning Post is full of wishful thinking. The Chinese are playing musical chairs to confuse the west and givee them the time and space they require to delay and understand the west.

The west one would have thought would have leanred from Gandhi's day of silence when he would not deal with Britain during their negotiations with Britain for independence.

China is going through the paces of reshuffling its cabinet and planning strategies which the west is only likely to learn of when it happens.
