We should start demanding that China pull out of PoK and GB and dismantle Karakoram highway built on Indian territory without our permission. We should issue a statement every week advising caution to those near Karakoram highway that we retain right to dismantle it and giving ultimatums to Pakistan and China to comply.
Let Republic TV and other media call Cheeni leaders as liars and warn them to remove their invasive troops from Akshai Chin.
It is atrocious that the victim (India) is keeping quite while the at-fault thug (China) is crying wolf.
We mock the Chinese su-su farts on every available opportunity and yet we want to emulate them? Aren't most folks on this forum suggesting that the "all fart and no $hit" Chinese are making a fool of themselves? Frankly, I am a little puzzled.
OK ... let me start with your first post and then I will come to you second post. Seems I was unable to get my point across.
What have the Chinese done in relation to Dokalam?
1. Demand that India withdraw unilaterally.
2. Issue statements frequently.
3. Giving ultimatums
4. Use its media to call Indians liars and warn us of invasive action.
Your last line was "It is atrocious that the victim (India) is keeping quite while the at-fault thug (China) is crying wolf". Clearly you wanted India to emulate China's su-su strategy which is "all fart and no $hit". If that is the gold standard why are we mocking them on those very things? That is the reason for my puzzlement.
Added later: I am not saying that the Chinese strategy intimidation is wrong. Clearly it has worked for them in the past. Most folks on this forum have mocked such a strategy with India because we don't see it working in our case. If it won't work for China in India's specific case then how do we expect it to work for India wrt China. All we will end up doing is making a fool of ourselves just as we think China is making of itself.
