Perhaps not our fight (then whose it is? Our dharmic brothers are getting crushed), if it is because we don't have the might yet, then yes, but it is our fight. Tibet has been a buffer and better made one asap, this will then perhaps allow both China and India to rise. Else the choice is only for 1 to rise, and if that is the case, 1 has already risen. It cannot be both, and if we have to rise, sorry China has to leave Tibet.
Say, we take Tibet. The problem then becomes keeping Tibet. Imagine the number of troops all along the southern and eastern mountains to hold Tibet.
Yes, a neutral and friendly Tibet is useful as a buffer state but like we see in Nepal, it is possible for buffer states to turncoat after many decades. So, we need to take full control of Tibet and keep the supply lines flowing.
I don't see it as feasible.
