THE LAND RULES THE SEA - FROM THE MOUNTAINS OF THE WEST, TO THE COASTLANDS OF THE EAST, TO THE BEAUTIFUL SOUTH AND EAST CHINA SEA - CHINA NEEDS TO BUILD A SECOND CHINA WITHIN CHINA IN HER WESTERN REGION.

Xi made some important remarks on the need to continue to develop Qinghai and Tibet which abut these Central Asian neighbors.  Indeed, China needs to fully develop its western region as a strategic reserve as the coastal regions have become precariously exposed to hostile navies and their planes and missiles.  While China has extensive maritime territories to protect, it needs a large strategic interior to secure them with.  Ironic, but the land rules the sea.  Shallow land defense, means shallow maritime power.  China can defend her seas from her coastal cities.  But China needs her mountains and high plateaus the defend her coastal cities in turn.  The War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression of 1937 to 1945 proved this point.  This is why Sichuan and its backroads to Yunnan and Myanmar are so important.  Also why future links toward the Central Asian heartland will prove indispensable to China's survival in the event of another major war.  Major, meaning, all her coastal cities will be under attack or siege.  Impossible?  It has already happened 75 years ago.  Xi An or Chang An, was literally, China's western capital, and the dynasties founded there could never be conquered from outside, especially from the sea, like the Qin, Han and Tang dynasties.  They crumbled from internal revolts, but never from external threats.
