Re: Pakistani Economic Stress Watch

Excellent. This I presume is a cash award. Since Pakis cannot cough up the cash, they have to settle. Against an assured cash award, what would the company settle for. Perhaps ten times of that in future business profits, maybe more given the prospects for business in Pakistan. About $ 50 bn down th...

Re: Pulwama Attack

The new Rohtang tunnel starts at 3120 mts and ends at 3080 meters (over 8.8 kms). The tunnel has a 7 feet high and 12 feet wide emergency tunnel right under the main carriageway. Chandra river is pretty narrow near the entry. The northern entrance is about 30 mts above the river bed and the river va...

Share of water (like 7%) is relevant only to measure capacity to divert. Storage capacity is a better measure of the potential to cause havoc through flooding. If China releases five days of storage on top of peak flow, it can create havoc.

Namrata Goswamy in Diplomat. Chinese have a habit of negotiating agreements and then unilaterally breaking them.

Re: Managing Chinese Threat (09-08-2014)

Has there been any GoI assessment of chinese body count in the 1962 war, based on bodies left over during retreat. If there were large scale (10K ++) as is some posts have mentioned here, shouldnt there be some uncovered even in snow?

Re: Managing Chinese Threat (09-08-2014)

In terms of retaliation, India will be well justified to attack the PLA troops stationed in the rear. However, China seems to have relied on a rocket-heavy strategy and actual troop levels close to the border are considerably lower compared to Indian troop concentration near the boundary. Some of t...

Re: Managing Chinese Threat (09-08-2014)

With these observations, the chances of Chinese initiating a limited assault in August or early September is very high. PLA knowing their tactical limitations with India occupying higher ground, are likely to resort to long range, sustained rocket fire (and artillery if they have place to mount gun...

We should never release the video.

Everytime a Paki stooge roars that they have a nuclear bomb, we should keep a stiff lip and say, we have a video.

Re: Indus Water Treaty

What is the feasibility of road tunnels having been designed to be used as water tunnels (they are used as emergency flood drains in some countries). There is a 14 km road tunnel under construction between Solang and Keylong. This could easily look like a water tunnel connecting Chenab and Beas.
