    A great step forward in China's Silk Road project to link up the "World Island" by train, thus side stepping the Anglo-Saxon strangle hold on the sea.

    One Belt One Road Initiative - Wikipedia

    The Belt and Road initiative is geographically structured along 6 corridors, and the maritime silk road.[7]

    New Eurasian Land Bridge, running from Western China to Western Russia
    China–Mongolia–Russia Corridor, running from Northern China to Eastern Russia
    China–Central Asia–West Asia Corridor, running from Western China to Turkey
    China–Indochina Peninsula Corridor, running from Southern China to Singapore
    China–Myanmar–Bangladesh–India Corridor, running from Southern China to Myanmar
    China–Pakistan Corridor, running from South-Western China to Pakistan
    Maritime Silk Road, running from the Chinese Coast through Singapore to the Mediterranean

    Interesting to see if any new conflicts start erupting along these routes.

    There's awhole bunch of conflicts along the Silk Road highway including the recent Myanmar business. Western globalism is going out of its way to ensure Silk Road developments don't happen by spreading as much instability as possible.

    Yes, it's obvious that the Septic Empire is stirring up as much terrorism as it can to try and stop this initiative. But, I'm sure the CCP has planned for that.

    Thanks, I was looking for a map to overlay against, that ones not bad.
    The india/china or pakistan/india conflicts, could all be blamed on past/border issues, but Myanmar looked a little too convenient.

    Yes, it certainly is a pity about the Anglo-Saxons getting up to their usual bullshit, i.e. terrorism.
