Even Obama whom you quote as someone whos blessings we need to protect our national interest said 'every country has a right to protect itself'. If we needed the world's permission to protect ourselves then why did we bother with independence ?
5. Bringing up our submarine force shows me that you have bought the nuclear blackmail of Pakistan. Lets just disband our armed forces then becuase your logic seems to be, even a coy level attack on a Pak forward post with 2 inch mortars, MMGs, RLs and GLs breaches 'the nuclear threshold'. This is again UTTER RUBBISH. We have carried out battalion level attacks many a time on the initiative of local commanders.
No sir., I am not talking about subservience to US. Fact is US is a big gorilla which has taken upon itself as the global dada. Gorilla has climed up a fig tree and does not know how to get down. We just do not want the gorilla to fall down on us. We do not need the world's protection to defend ourselves., but we really need to be careful into not getting into an escalated shooting match not at our time and shooting.
Regarding submarine force., no - I have not bought into baki nuclear blackmail on India
. When we put our submarine force into West Vietnam Sea and East Phillipine Sea., we are threatening China to keep its support to suars in abeyance. Unlike 1971, we do not have the soviet union fighting for us in the security council. We do not have a seat in UNSC either. In this case, we have to balance multiple powers., we have complete capability to walk over bakistan in days (if not in hours)., but the geo-politics is that - that walking over bakistan is a challenge to the existing UNSC structure - basically a direct challenge to US and China. We cannot win a millitary-diplomatic-geo strategic war where we end up driving US/China together. We need to keep them separate.
The best bet is to keep threatening China at a low key while taking small steps to break down bakistan internally. Bakistan must go through an internal collapse., its internal collapse threatening China by migration back into Uighar lands!! Or that is what my thought process is.
