How wrong I was

2005 was a different place

This is an archived blog post from The Acorn.

The Acorn, like many other blogs, routinely calls out those who were wrong. Time to direct the criticism at oneself: this blog got it wrong—in 2005—when I thought that China would see it as in its best interests to stop antagonising India. Here’s a post that I wrote on the eve of Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao’s March 2005 visit to India.

In my defence, I’ll only say that my assessment of the prospects for India-China relations has changed in the face of new facts.
