China has to further develop capability in Hybrid Warfare,Chinese Anglophone Media like CGTN and Global Times needs biting narrative as softness does not pay dividends in crises,but it need to be done in a subtle way.Comparing it with Indian Media,which is almost jumpy and absurd,China needs to learn some lessons.Build up a cabal of sophisticated Hybrid Warriors who can forcefully project Chinese Narrative.In Post truth Media environment,u need a 24/7 media blitz from multiple platforms.

Chinese hybrid war capacity is being challenged by a combo of Indian and Western Information Operation.The English speaking community in China cannot fight it alone;despite Chinese strong economic and military outlook,the ability to penetrate into International Community is a big challenge.china may think of Media alliance with like minded countries who have some capacity in Anglophone Media to project Chinese narrative.Numbers and quality counts a lot in hybrid warfare,especially in crises.Media has now an expanding space in print,electronic and digital and cyber space;from YouTube to twitter and Formal Channels and Cable TV to Newspapers and Think Tanks,its an ocean.

Indian banning of Chinese digital applications may be considered as its first move to hit Chinese Strategic vulnerabilities. Indian media is calling it a #DigitalStrike this is part of Hybrid War that I mentioned.China has to analyse its implications and rally support from allies who can blunt this narrative in Hybrid War.Interestingly Indo China standoff is getting lot of traction in Pakistani media

Indian strategic vulnerabilities are too many..Nagaland,Khalistan,Kashmir,Dravida Nadu,Nexal Republic and Gorkhaland.This is over and above the implosion of Dalit,Muslim and Caste fault lines. Why India is worried about Nagaland?

In my POV taking taiwan by force is a complete liability to China. US and its allies in the pacific are too strong.

Should think outside of the box, China should give up for other things more valuable.

The future of China is westward belt and road.
Its integration with middle , central asia, europe and africa..

If i were China i would give up Taiwan and in exchange for militarily controlling Myanmar which more.doable than taking taiwan and controlling by force.

Once controlling myanmar China can establish major naval and military base.

Indian strategy of choking off China ship lane through malacca strait through its naval base at Andaman and Nicobar island but Myanamr is close to those island and if China has naval forces it can defeat indian navy there.

Andaman island is too far from indian mainland so if China military at Myanmar wants to capture Andaman island its doable.

If China give up on taiwan and pacific side in exchange for myanmar and indian ocean its strategic vulnerabilities would suddenly disappear.

Just need to think ourside of the box and turn that corner

That's like asking US to give up Hawaii. Taiwan is historical Chinese territory, an intended civil war, not another nation state that they want to conquer. It also opens the door to deep waters in Pacific to allow boomers free access.

Myanmar is not Chinese, and never will be. There is no interest from china to conquer anywhere in SEA, not even northern Vietnam, and that was Chinese before too.

Flexibility means give up certain historical things if needed.
Russia took Crimea because it needs access to black sea.

If China wants to defend itself at india ocean, controlling myanmar is starting point.
US took hawaii and guam because it need them for naval bases in pacific.

US have a long Pacific coast. They took Guam and Hawaii as part of imperial expansion. Russia have access to black Sea, but took crimea because it is historically Russian and not Ukraine's.

Why don't we ask japan to give up Kyushu and Okinawa or Korea to give up Jeju, that would help out China too.
