Re: India's Border Security with China and Pakistan-2020 - Part 2

Maybe the inevitability of even half of the 90K troops being disengaged from Chinese border just pivoting towards Pok. India did not thin out any forces on Paki border to beat down the dragon - so whatever gets pivoted from LAC to LoC will be the anvil that will drive deep into PoK. Also - for GOI -...

Re: 2021 Strategic and Political Analysis-1

With this current round of mini insurrection now deflating, what still bothers me is the ability of BIF to whip up emotional frenzy on pure legislative issues. Somehow I get the feeling that more than 50% of whoever supported these 'farmers' did so just on emotions of supporting farmers and not out ...
