Highway Wars: The Battle to Develop Eurasia

08/19/201741 Comments

If we can only envision guns and bombs when we think about war, that is merely a failure of our imagination. Make no mistake: There are wars for geopolitical dominance taking place between various players around the globe right now, and it’s all happening without a shot being fired or a soldier on the battlefield.

For an example of this we need look no further than Asia, where there is a strange game of one-upsmanship taking place between bitter frenemies China and India, clear rivals for regional economic dominance who happen to also be buddy-buddy in the BRICS and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization and other multi-lateral bodies.

No, I’m not talking about the dramatic border skirmishes currently taking place between Indian and Chinese troops. That’s the old, guns-and-bombs type of conflict that gets all the press. I’m talking about something much more subtle, much less headline-grabbing and, potentially, much more important for the future of the region, and, ultimately, the world.
