As a thought experiment
1. In case of conflict can we take Tibet region upto Yarlung Tsangpo(Brahmaputra) / Indus starting from Kailas and defend it with our current forces?
This would be a major win as it will prevent major blackmailing on the part of China to divert the waters? This is also still very far away from china proper so logistics will be difficult as today for them to fight a war so far away. This should be a must if current capability exists.
2. What will it take to capture Outer Tibet ( yangtse as boundary)?
3. What will it take to capture entire Tibet (i.e. till china proper bordered by Lanzhou-Chendu-Lijiang) ?
Would 2&3 above need involvement of Russia and US?
