Imagine.. Russia a country whose economy is just 1/6 of China's and a defence budget that is 1/3 of China's is a threat to the West but China's isn't.
My point is,the West never considered China to be an adversary. In fact China is an ally of the West (along with Pakistan) that helps them to pin down two countries they dislike the most - Russia and India.
I'm with you, Sujoy. You make good posts. And beyond that, I think the west thought it could keep chicoms on a leash while using them for cheap labor. They were wrong ultimately. Western politicians and businessmen sold the west out in their greed. I think many Indians feel their politicians and businessmen are equally as corrupt and unpatriotic. Their money is overseas. Where your money and belongings go, there is where your heart rests.
