PoK has very little population and few roads. what's there to feed? THat is a very myopic view of PoK. There are few additional reasons for PoK 1. Control of water for our food bowl and plains (indus water) 2. Elimination of joint threat of china pak 3. ascension of India as a military power 4. We ...

Typically, Chinese act by creating B (and C and D if needed) when they're concerned about what might be happening at A.
