Should India BackOut ?
Indian & Chinese troops are facing each other at Doklam. an area disputed between Bhutan & China. India entered the area on a specific request from the Bhutanese. This area has always been a bone of contention, between these countries. India under treaty obligations is bound to go to the defense of its weak small neighbor.
During this period (seas0n) the glaziers graze their sheep and Yakpand do enter deep into our territory, sometimes they are accompanied by armed escorts. This normally happens when the borders are not demarcated and delineated. Bhutan has successfully tried to have the borders demarcated and maps drawn & internationally recognized. It is India that is arm twisting Bhutan and now is placed in an un enviable position.
Bhutan has a large Tibetan population; the refugees they have settled in some pockets and owe their allegiance to Dharmashala and even pay Taxes to the Tibetan Govt In exile. They are a state within a state & the King being a powerless monarch has to toe the line of India. The whole world knows that today China is a super power and an economic giant. India is no match, either economically or militarily,
India should find out a face saving device and back out of the face 0ff.It is reported that India has scaled down its troops strength to 48. The non- aligned policy of Nehru was given a decent burial as it was, someone called it immoral. We were on the side of America, with a begging bowl, for food under PL-480. And on the side of USSR for Veto on the Kashmir issue.
The India’s China war of 1962 was created by the Nehru Govt. India should not have welcomed the Dalai Lama, nor allowed him to set up an exile Govt on the soil of India and supported him financially and morally. Firstly India should not have relinquished our inherited suzerainty over Tibetan region, secondly we should not have gone in for one china policy, thirdly we should not have supported Chinese entry into UN & later a seat in the Security Council, fourthly knowing fully well, india cannot take on China, he ordered the Indian Army to throw out intruding Chinese troops ETC ETC. The instead of throwing out the Chinese troops,indianArmy was kicked out by the Chinese in a most disgraceful defeat
History is going to repeat itself. This time our forces will be totally wiped out. North Korea which is under the thumb of China, will only have to fire few missiles,ICBMs, at an appropriate target to scare away America & Nato powers. No one in his right senses will come to the aid of India, nor will support us. Pakistan is only waiting to invade Kashmir and annex it. Kashmir valley is under fire and the jihadists will surely take their fight to the right level. The Army chief says Indian army can fight on 2 and a half front’s .I do not know why he did not say we can fight the whole world.
As the Bhutanese king said the existing treaty requires up-dating. The king does not consider Indian advice on its external affairs binding on Bhutan. Nor it serves its interests. Thimpu must open out establish its diplomatic centers in Beijing and other Important countries and take independent decisions in its interests.
Best thing for India is to withdraw its troops on some pretext and avoid a major conflagration in the region that may lead to a third world war///
