  • When the power of love overcomes the love of power then humanity can evolve

From the article:

A two week Chinese incursion has left India on the verge of crises, it has today been reported.
India says Chinese troops set up a camp on its side of the ill-defined frontier in Ladakh region in the middle of April.
The platoon of Chinese soldiers slipped across the boundary into India in the middle of the night, according to Indian officials.


They were ferried across the bitterly cold moonscape in Chinese army vehicles, then got out to traverse a dry creek bed with a helicopter hovering overhead for protection.
They finally reached their destination and pitched a tent in the barren Depsang Valley in the Ladakh region, a symbolic claim of sovereignty deep inside Indian-held territory.
So stealthy was the operation that India did not discover the incursion until a day later, Indian officials said.


China denies any incursion, but Indian officials say that for two weeks, the soldiers have refused to move back over the so-called Line of Actual Control that divides Indian-ruled territory from Chinese-run land, leaving the government on the verge of a crisis with its powerful northeastern neighbor.
Indian officials fear that if they react with force, the face-off could escalate into a battle with the feared People's Liberation Army. But doing nothing would leave a Chinese outpost deep in territory India has ruled since independence.
'If they have come 19 kilometres into India, it is not a minor LAC violation. It is a deliberate military operation. And even as India protests, more tents have come up,' said Sujit Dutta, a China specialist at the Jamia Milia Islamia university in New Delhi.
'Clearly, the Chinese are testing India to see how far they can go,' he said.

Not sure what China's intentions are in the region. Vietnam, Tawian, Japan and now India?

I believe it to be infighting within the Chinese government.  Make it look like the chairman is weak or out of control so a coup can be justified.

Indian should have as strong military with neighbors like that.  If they let it go the Chinese will keep taking more.  I hope diplomacy can resolve this issue so it doesn't turn into a war.  Both parties have nuclear weapons.

Is China trying to p*** off all their neighbours?

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

India's leadership is weak according to the link.
The BBC will take 12 hours to report this

New conspiracy theory here.  China is cooperating with right wingers in India to perform a coup on the indian government.

  Even if their leadership is weak it doesn't give them the right to invade for no reason.  Unless this territory is really theirs which I have my doubts.

I think the US should be improving relations with India as a hedge against Pakistan and China in the future.  More trade and military ties would chasten and sober the ISI methinks.  As it is they have a nearly free hand aiding the Taliban in Afghanistan.  If they have to start worrying about being slapped around by a more powerful neighbor they might have less nervous energy to annoy us with.

  Imagination is the power in the turn of a phrase.

I agree... Appeasement doesn't work. Look at what happened with Hitler and the Sudetenland...

Hey, don't like my opinions? I can respect that. Just realize guns allow you to have that opinion without being labeled as mentally insane for questioning the state.

The disputed region (Ladakh) is part of Tibet.  The population is of Indo/Tibetan descent and the Chinese shouldn't even be in Tibet in the first place.
