The reality is, if India acts against the strategic wishes of the US in its own region, it will face consequences. What is needed is for the US to disengage from the Indian subcontinent.
Don’t know what to say to this.
India can’t act till it is guaranteed by the US that there will be no consequences to those actions?
Tell me I am reading you wrong.
if the US disengages from the Indian subcontinent, not only are we going to be left high and dry but also f##### and far from home.
that is exactly what the hans want so that they can halal us at their leisure, knowing very well that we will never precipitate any crisis for them unless provoked beyond tolerance.
they have come as close as they can possibly come in bhutan, lanka and very recently, also in nepal. They have been less than a stones throw away from us both in pukiland as well as afghanistan for many years.
we will get no guarantees from the US but then again, we need the US to continue to cast a long shadow over the region so as to keep the hans in check and we will only benefit from this arrangement in the medium turn.
As our economy continues to grow, the US will wield increasingly lesser influence over us while the hans will start to get increasingly antsy.
nepal today simply does not know what hit it, after the hans moved in and grabbed nepalese land without so much as a by your leave
It needs only one eyetalian mafia BIF run/influenced dispensation to reset the entire equation and leave India floundering once again.
