If the native population dosnt want to stay, they are free to gtfo. The land is ours.
We should think of capturing that area which connects Pakistan to China.That would be give us a great advantage.I have heard that Pakistan has deployed heavy army there and it is not possible to capture it without heavy casualities.

Regardless of the positions occupied by each country, and their respective tactical advantages, Pakistan has the superior orientation because India operates on exterior lines and is at verge of its culminating point being at the optimum distance from its logistic basis with no communication infra structure, less the aerial route to support it.

So the plan of Three Musketeers, Col Kumar, Lieutenant General Chibber and General Raina costed and is costing a fortune to India for nothing.

It does not cost India a fortune. The entire cost of maintaining Siachen is peanuts to the Indian Military. Let alone, the Indian Government. The Government is not even bothered by what it spends.

India's military budget alone is enough to run Siachen.
On the other hand, it costs a lot to Pakistan to maintain its position below Siachen.

The economic cost of maintaining an infantry brigade group at Siachen to guard the desolate mountain passes and approaches leading to them from the western slopes of the Saltoro Ridge has been estimated to range between Rs 3-3.5 crore per day - Rs 1,000-1,200 crore annually.

anyways my actual point is not amount.. cost is high or meager.. it is being spent for nothing as far as India is concerned. thats the point.

They are not. They want us to come down because they love us and it breaks their heart to see us waste money this way. :sarcastic: Then they will sit on a chair just below Saltoro Ridge and admire the beauty of the glacier. Nothing else. :angel:

It is useless for India, otherwise bring forth the evidence to contrary (even then India is bound to spend 30 times more than Pakistan annually to maintain its presence there). Secondly, India did aggression going against the Simla accord, that's why!

That's why Pakistan has been crying all over the world for India to remove its positions from Siachen. And probably that's why Pakistan made multiple attempts all the way upto 1987 at the cost of many of its men to recapture those positions :)

It is a matter of aggression against the law and pride. The fact remains that Pakistan still has a tactical and Strategic advantage.

What is the tactical advantage, and what is the strategic advantage that Pak has? Kindly elucidate us on both.

You have to prove me wrong. Care eliciting by bringing forth the evidence to the contrary instead of just ranting!!
