Vietnam Says China Must Avoid Trade Weapon in Maritime Disputes

Dec 2, 2012 Full story: Bloomberg 137

Vietnam said China should avoid using trade as a weapon in maritime disagreements after diplomatic tensions led to a slump in exports from Japan when Chinese consumers boycotted the goods of its Asian neighbor.

You are a racist.
Part of my ancestors were native Vietnamese. The other ancestors were from China, not recently, but 8 or 9 generations ago.
Do you have any concept about how long a period of 8 or 9 generations is?
Because part of us is Chinese, in the 1970's we were treated very harshly/inhumanely. Therefore we had to escape from our hometown. Some ended up in south China and worked in farms. Some perished in the high seas (over a million died). Many of us were saved and sent to camps in Hong Kong. We considered ourselves lucky becuase Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia would not accept refugees from VN but fire machine guns at them to tell them to leave. Neither would Japan accept them then. It was very mean!
We were grateful to people who had helped us greatly. I always feel indebted to Hong Kong govt and people. They not only helped us (with some Chinese blood), but also a lot of Vietnamese people. Hong Kong always deserves my respect though life in the refugee camps was tough.
Canadians are nice to us too.
I love Vietnam and it is my motherland. But because of my ancestry (even we are mixed), some Vietnamese people tried to kill us in the 1970's.
That is genocide and ethnic cleansing. Unfortunately, the UN, and USA did not say anything or do anything about it.
The VN govt. had actually committed a serious crime against humanity.
Shame on you, my stupid racist fellow countrymen!
Descendants of immigrants came to VN 8 or 9 generations ago are still consider non-Vietnamese citizen by many of you.
You are also immigrants today. I believe you have naturalized as USA citizen.
Do you complain that you are not treated as citizens by some local people there. I would say, "Don't complain! You are as bad!"

The water hegemon

China’s unrivaled control of rivers and refusal to share water is a dangerous game


China has identified another mega-dam site on the Brahmaputra at Daduqia, which, like Metog, is to harness the force of an almost 3,000m drop in the river’s height as it takes a sharp southerly turn from the Himalayan range into India, forming the world’s longest and steepest canyon. The Brahmaputra Canyon — twice as deep as the Grand Canyon in the US — holds Asia’s greatest untapped water reserves.

The countries likely to bear the brunt of such massive diversion of waters are those located farthest downstream on rivers like the Brahmaputra and Mekong — Bangladesh, whose very future is threatened by climate and environmental change, and Vietnam, a rice bowl of Asia. China’s water appropriations from the Illy River threaten to turn Kazakhstan’s Lake Balkhash into another Aral Sea, which has shrunk to less than half its original size.

In addition, China has planned the “Great Western Route,” the proposed third leg of the Great South-North Water Diversion Project — the most ambitious inter-river and inter-basin transfer program ever conceived — whose first two legs, involving internal rivers in China’s ethnic Han heartland, are scheduled to be completed within three years. The Great Western Route, centered on the Tibetan Plateau, is designed to divert waters, including from international rivers, to the Yellow River, the main river of water-stressed northern China, which also originates in Tibet.

With its industry now dominating the global hydropower-equipment market, China has also emerged as the largest dam builder overseas. From Pakistani--held Kashmir to Myanmar’s troubled Kachin and Shan states, China has widened its dam building to disputed or insurgency--torn areas, despite local backlashes.

For example, units of the People’s Liberation Army are engaged in dam and other strategic projects in the restive, Shiite-majority region of Gilgit-Baltistan in Pakistan-held Kashmir. And China’s dam building inside Myanmar to generate power for export to Chinese provinces has contributed to renewed bloody fighting recently, ending a 17-year ceasefire between the Kachin Independence Army and the government.

As with its territorial and maritime disputes with India, Vietnam, Japan and others, China is seeking to disrupt the status quo on international river flows. Persuading it to halt further unilateral appropriation of shared waters has thus become pivotal to Asian peace and stability.

Otherwise, China is likely to emerge as the master of Asia’s water taps, thereby acquiring tremendous leverage over its neighbors’ behavior.

China taking control of Asia’s water tower

May 2nd 2012

Its vast ice sheets and monsoon run-off make the Tibetan plateau one of the largest sources of fresh water on an increasingly thirsty planet. It supplies 1.3 billion people with water for irrigation and drinking, and offers the promise of unparalleled hydropower. But who owns this water? As China looks to claim the vast flows that emerge from the water tower of Asia, what of the rights of its downstream neighbours? With hydro-engineers moving in, questions like these are fast becoming incendiary geopolitics. China is centre stage: it has plans to dam or divert each of the five great rivers that emerge from Tibet’s high plateau before tumbling into neighbouring countries – the Indus, Brahmaputra, Irrawaddy, Salween and Mekong. The projects have sparked simmering disputes between China and its neighbours.

The starting gun in a race to control Tibet’s rivers may have been fired with a court order from India’s Supreme Court last month, calling for work to begin on canals that will link many of India’s largest rivers. The scheme’s lynchpin is a 400-kilometre-long canal that will divert water from the Brahmaputra to the Ganges to irrigate water-starved fields 1000 kilometres to the south. The court decision is partly a reaction to nascent Chinese schemes to dam and divert the Brahmaputra further upstream in Tibet. For now, the Brahmaputra remains one of the planet’s last great untamed rivers. That may soon change. In addition to the Indian diversion plan, Chinese engineers want to tap the river in the Tsangpo canyon. There they could build two hydroelectric plants, each delivering twice the power of the Three Gorges dam on the Yangtze, currently the world’s largest dam. Even further upstream, engineers have drawn up plans to divert up to 40 per cent of the river’s flow to irrigate crops on China’s northern plains.

The plans are making Bangladesh and India, which both lie downstream on the Brahmaputra, very nervous. India faces a water crisis, and sees the Brahmaputra as its largest untapped water source. But the real victim could be Bangladesh, which relies on the river for two-thirds of its water, much of it for irrigation during the long dry season. Nearly 20 million Bangladeshi farmers depend on the river to water their crops. The competing projects could lead to a resource conflict between India and China, and an environmental catastrophe for Bangladesh, Robert Wirsing of Georgetown University School of Foreign Service in Qatar warned a conference on water security held in Oxford, UK, last week.

Until recently, China mostly dammed rivers flowing within its borders. But to meet soaring demand for energy and irrigation, its engineers have moved on to international rivers.
