    I’m pretty sure that the interests of China’s ruling elites are served by peace. Are the interests of the Pakistani military served by peace, or could “some damnfool thing in Kashmir” (to paraphrase Otto von Bismarck) lead to a broader regional conflict or world war?

    • I wish I could be so sure the interests of China’s ruling elites are served by peace. There is intense competition among China’s elites and there is no telling what some of them might elect to do as a way to gain power.
