2005 was a different place
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.

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.
