Love thy Neighbor!!!


India’s reply to China by landing AN-32 just 23 kms form the China border in the Ladhak region today was indeed a step in the right direction, and that’s probably the only language China understands. It’s good to see that for once the forces are asked to take a proactive step and stake claim what is rightfully ours.

China is no Pakistan and that’s the problem, it’s not a democratic country, it does not understand soft power nor does it need US aid, so where does that leave India? The only way to keep the Dragon fire from spreading is by splashing water and keeping it wet time and again.

Given the fact that the politicians does not want the forces to gain more power than they want them to have, the forces are pushed up the wall to play a reactive role than a proactive role. What do we do with our troublesome neighbors? Trained terrorist from Pakistan, Tiger trouble from the Lankan waters, Fake currency from Nepal & Bangladesh, Dragon fire from Karakoram range to Kanchenjunga, do we sill want to say ‘love thy neighbor’ or stick to only ‘diplomacy or soft power’?

We have been pussy footing on all the major decision related to our neighbors for way to long, and its time we take a stand. In policy making the only way of forward is by taking a position and pussy footing would only mean pushing the decision for another day, without realizing that we still have to live that another day.

One thing The Indian Army can do is give China a tough time..a very tough time if China attacks...because the world at large lauds the Indian Army as the Kings of Mountain Warfare after the new strategies it executed in Kargil and the world watched amazed.And the very thought of imagining the terrain of kargil can give a good idea...and they were dealing with apart from regulars...terrorist...men who have nothing to loose.

INDIA needs to make friends with china's enemies. Countries like Vietnam, Taiwan are at loggerheads with China. These countries need to be given full support, diplomatic and military, just like China gives such support to BLOODY Pakistan. INDIA also needs to match with China's inch by inch policy to its own inch by inch EFFICIENT AND QUICK RESPONSE ASSERTIVENESS TO ITS TERRITORY. The INDIAN ARMY may just be less than half the size of the Chinese army but it is a HARDCORE GUTSY UNIT. The INDIAN POLITICIAN AND THE INDIAN POPULATION AS A WHOLE MAY NOT KNOW THIS FACT BUT THE INDIAN ARMY CLEARLY KNOWS THAT THEY ARE ALL ALONE IN THIS WORLD AND THEY WILL HAVE TO KEEP SACRIFICING THEIR PERSONAL SAFETY AND EVEN DIE FOR A CAUSE.
The INDIAN ARMY knows that Pakistan has its brother nations to help it and China has its no nonsense discipline and years of military and economic progress, but the INDIAN ARNY has no brother nations in this world, it has a spineless political system which forces it to behave unnaturally. The INDIAN ARMY not only needs to confront foreign enemies but also try to push the political system into understanding the fact that "WE CANNOT AFFORD TO BE THAT DECENT ANYMORE"..........

The Defence Force of China, Pakistan and the the whole world may love and respect and even die for their nations BUT THE INDIAN ARMY WORSHIPS THEIR NATION...

And last but not the least comment that i wish to add......
"prayers for the unknown soldier"

China has definitely gotten aggressive in this game of oneupmanship. Its clearly posturing itself as the region's big brother. We need not necessarily get worked up but should ensure adequate action so that we clearly show that we wont be stirred when push comes to shove

i think china is pepetrating all sorts of nonsense n the kashmir area so as to deflct attention from its expansionist aims in the northeast.

and i cant for the life of me understand why our democratic process has to HAMPER our own security. notch up the army a couple and go GET 'em. :x
