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

It's not that simple - if India undertakes GB/PoK campaign then it would avoid war across IB to keep it in the domain of reclaiming lost territory and not be labelled as imperialist. But if Pakis join Chinese to create a 2-front war in Ladakh - then nothing stops IA from unleashing strike corps towa...

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

If their plan was to strike a devastating blow just before winter and hide behind snow - then why mobilise in Apr-May and give India a 4 month window to buildup ?? So a quick strike which cannot be escalated to a wider conflict since mountains will snow out also does not seem to the original intent.

If the Chinese are stopping Indian patrols in Depsang area from going further than the Y-Junction , then isn't that a larger intrusion and more loss of territory and tactical advantage then the Pangong lake diversion? Why does GoI want to keep focus on Pangong lake ?
