Re: Analyzing CPEC

^^ the above is misleading

The 50usd is actually the container cost. BL and land transport to the port is separate. Usually totals in the range of 1000 to 1200usd per container.

To keep things in perspective, you can get containers for 0usd from India to certain destinations.

Re: Latest Chinese boast: should we shiver or die laughing?

If we play our cards right, they will rally behind us to teach the hegemon a lesson. i agree 100% but that needs time time that we ourselves need as a nation to grow and become stronger. which brings us back to my first point, we need to bide our time for now, no point in engaging china immediately.

If there is political will, a more aggressive Indian response to Chinese probing/land grabbing patrols, might be to do a `Kargil in reverse'. We outnumber the PLA in every sector along the LAC and since our troops are not conscripts - with some being locally raised units, we have a much better feel...
