CCP weaponizes water: building dams to control water flow to downstream countries

According to a report in 2016, China has built 87,000 dams, turning water into a weapon by controlling the water flow to the downstream countries. The water shortage in Asia put many countries under the tight grip of the Chinese Communist regime.

The CCP has even caused man-made droughts in Vietnam by limiting the water flow using dams, forcing the Vietnamese to beg the CCP for water.

Chinese dams are killing the Mekong river, one of the world’s largest river systems

A river that sustains some 60 million people is dying. The Mekong is one of the world’s largest river systems, but man-made construction activity in the form of dams is slowly choking the river.

Nearly 5000 kilometers long, the river flows through six countries – China, Myanmar, Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, and Cambodia. But along the way, a network of dams is interrupting its natural flow. Some 80 new dams are planned in addition to the ones already existing. What is the impact of choking the flow of water with its life-giving nutrients?

CCP is threatening India’s water source

After the border skirmishes with India, one of the ways for the CCP to retaliate is to cut off the Indian water source at the Himalaya and Tibet.

The CCP is building dams, including some in Nepal, to cut off the water source to the Ganges River. In addition, the CCP is also working on a colossal project to divert water to its Xingjiang Province to completely deprive India of any water flowing through China.

Overcoming engineering challenges, the CCP has secretly completed the construction of the Motuo Dam, stopping 90% of the water of the Yarlung Zangbo (Yarlung Tsangpo) River from flowing into India’s Brahmaputra river, which merges with the Ganges (Ganga) river.

The Motuo Dam and the other dams to be built along the Yarlung Zangbo River are against experts’ advises, devastating the fragile eco-system in the region:
