China invades India!

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.

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.

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

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.

The whole Kashmir/South Tibet area is in constant land dispute between Pakistan, India and China.

The map in the link is excellent because you get a visual on each countries claim by pressing on the country below the map.

The Chinese have a theory that if they wait and have patience they will eventually win,and they are prepared to wait a long time,they waited 100 years to regain Hong Kong,and now that is a commercial Goldmine.They probe surrounding countries to see what reaction is given,and when the fuss dies down they are still there.Ah so !, patience will win in the end.In the U.K. they waited until Midland Bank crashed then they bought it out and it became the HKSB Bank,and now thats making Massive profits.

The chinese are making a mistake , 19 kms will give them nothing its barren land such pressure tactics will only lead to their own downfall , the country has suppressed true facts by controlling the media , wait a few years they will have their own infighting and chaos to handle . India has never interfered with any country;s rights Pakistan started exporting terrorists now they have chaos in pakistan when the same guns and bombs are being used against their own people . India is not weak , we love peace we want good relations but then if we have no choice we shall respond in the appropriate way.

A misleading title if I ever saw one.

Nobody kicks up a fuss when American/British troops surround their enemies.

It's just refreshing to see a middle eastern country burn a flag that's not an American one....
