I think there is the potential for that kind of provocation. This is for sure intended to poke China with a stick in a region it considers in it's own interest and they have so far shown little inclination to back down when provoked. We should be finding ways to negotiate out of arms races not stoking them.

This is probably to compensate for the loss of face and strategic position in Afghanistan which essentially turns over central Asia to hostile powers.

I'm not sure it is a well thought out strategy though.
