PakBrothers mine,


Automated fish swiming everywhere these days... SouthChinaSea ... EastChinaSea .... from both sides... under the surface/behind the scenes.... quite an active Game of Thrones!

So, surprise attack with long range SLCM is become unsprising/or naked... lessening those options... from those Seas....

However, Bay of Bengal .... nicely, tucked.... nice quiet place for that suprise! No, underwater automated fishing contest there.

We need to also revisit .... Bhutan... Doklam.... need to see with clarity.

New Dalai Lama .... soon to appear... quite a contest that one too... The Game already speeding up there.

Sikkim... some time travel... its annexation by stealth... when the next days the 'leaders' came to visit Delhi...not even a lower level Babu will entertain them.... Why is Sikkim so important?

Nepal, finally, found its breath and said ... NO! It is mine!

It would make things difficult for China if the CovertAlliance of India and the US-CombinedWest became Overt... of course, more headaches...but it is calculated as Factor in the Chinese Statecraft.... enough of media reports to 'dechiper' SinoSpeak!

Now, even if India goes all fluffy on HongKong about the New Law.... it makes Zero difference... remember IoJK still under Curfew!

Even if India drops its OneChina Policy... the imagined TrumpCard... won't make a dent in the overall Cross-Straight Dynamics...

So, what does the Ladakh business tell us?

It is not some spontaneous act of waking up to the 5Aug illegal Indian action i.e. paper annexation of IoJK.... a direct violation of UN... but why now?

China already has had so much bad press prior to HongKong Security Law.... KhooniVirus ...still doing its thing.

What is the compelling reason for such Deomonstrative Action by PLA?

5.000 to 10.000 PLA Troops... eyes in the sky watching .... all tents and trucks... J11s on the tarmac as shown by the IndianMedia....

Certainly, not for Pakistan!

China won't go to this length in such overt manner... while its hands are full with so many internal and external issues. ColdWar 3.0!

In essense, short of giving the US bases...like we did in 50s... Indian TrumpCards are not that extensive... HasinaRegime is the only Firewall in BD for India....

One thing is certain... China will not initiate a ClockworkWar with India or for that matter the US.

The reason for to why China has taken such a Demonstrative step is rather clear!

Your critique is most welcome!

I think there is something related to what @Khafee hinted about our procurements with all this recent China-India drama

no need to worry about that. Most PLA soldiers are behind the LAC within the Chinese claim line, there are only a few standoff locations across the LAC about 500m or so. As long as India completes its road connectivity and airstrips, Chinese will not be able to do anything.
Yes. Siachen is bound to become an Indian territory fully surrounded by Chinese controlled Kashmir all around.

Chinese goal is to connect Chinese controlled Ladakh with Chinese controlled Shaksgam valley.

Chinese have already made gains in Pangong Tso and Galwan Valley in the last few days.

Until now the world knew China as a peace loving and neutral country with every nation around the world,

CoVid and the allegations on China has changed that very significantly, Actually surprising sometimes, Is CoViD really a piece of chess on a wider board for world dominance ?

Slowly but surely they will reach LEH end of this year at this speed.
Looks like that is plan. To take control before the next winter sets in.

Agreed.

Unless India fires first, there’d be no war.
India will not fire any bullets. Our main focus is on how to feed our Army. Bullets are least of our priorities.

O Shahzade,

Why did PLA move just now?
IK's rhetoric from last two months regarding GB, SMK's recent tweets. They had intelligence, this PLA move is to dilute the impact and engage India on another front. A clear signaling... Though it won't go in to direct conflict but at least to keep them on their toes. Will give much of breathing space to Pakistan at LOC, since india had upped the ante from Kabulistan and Iran to dilute Pakistan's force on two fronts. It's quite interesting how this is playing out. India is gonna come red faced and blue eyed out of it this time around.

Finally, in the medium term, in the time-tested methodology of the Chinese state, there is always a step taken towards their long-term objectives, in this case, towards expansion into disputed territory, converting disputed territory into settled, and undisputed territory into disputed.
I don't think it is a unique Chinese methodology. Indians have been practicing the same with good results.

It seems quite clearly that this is a reaction to the pressure that China is facing at the moment. The border with India is not at all one of their areas of great concern; their concentration has been and continues to be their front with Taiwan, and in the naval arena, the South China Sea. These petty squabbles are China's piqued reaction to India's undutiful support of other countries to the demand for an investigation into China's management of the Covid-19 crisis; to the Indian flirting with the US proposal for a loosely-linked alliance to support their efforts against Chinese expansion into the South China Sea; and to the Indian deviation from her earlier unconditional support for the PRC.
Is this also one things that has contributed to current escalations?

What about a naval base in Vietnam, overlooking Chinese moves in the South China Sea! India maintains a Air and Naval Base at the Cam Ranh Bay, in Vietnam.

Like Sikkim and Siachin etc, it will be interesting to see how the two big neighbours deal with each other, apart from kicking and swearing. China is quite capable to handle multiple fronts,if US wants to join the party.
