China wants War with India? (Part 1)
It appears that talks on deescalation have met with a dead lock. The belligerent China which had moved forward on three different positions on Indo-Tibet borders, seems to be not interested to move back. It has been forcibly evicted from two positions but on third position (possibly all three) China has built up military positions and three divisions of it’s army are in battle ready positions.
The disputed land has nothing to do with China as it did not have any border with India. In 1950-57 China occupied Tibet then moved forward and occupied 38000 sq km of land called Aksai Chin while Nehru, the then Prime Minister of India was shivering in his pants refusing to use air power to deter China. Now it is revealed that Nehru’s descendants were permitting more and more encroachment of land by China, subject to payment of donation to them.
Right now, India has taken following steps at the border:
- Entire Mountain Division is in ready position and posted at border. (It is the only army of this kind in the world which is acclimatized for fighting at high altitude)
- Three Divisions of Army have been deployed in acclimatization zone as back up.
- Needless to say about infantry and Bheeshm High Terrain Tanks, howitzer guns etc.
- Aakash Air Defence System with range of 30 Km deployed.
- The airport at highest altitude in the world at Doulatbag oldie is ready with Aircraft like Sukhoi, Tejas and Miraj etc.
- Sukhoi is equipped with Brahmos supersonic missile of 300 km. It is unstoppable by any missile defence (except perhaps S-400 which China has already deployed on it’s side.)
- Barak-8 imported from Israel is being deployed at borders which can not be stopped by S-400.
China has a settled policy of diplomacy which translates into talk-talk and war-war. It has been announced on pro-china news channel that both sides have agreed by India and China to talk on weekly basis. But such talk is meaningless if not followed up. Meanwhile Prime Minister of India, in his monthly address to the nation used these words:
“My dear countrymen, irrespective of the magnitude of the calamity confronting us, India’s sanskar…way of life inspires one and all to serve selflessly. The way India extended a helping hand to the world during difficult times, it has reinforced India’s role in ushering in peace and development. This period also saw the world realising India’s spirit of universal brotherhood…at the same time it also noticed India’s commitment and might when it comes to safeguarding her sovereignty and territorial integrity. Those who cast an evil eye on Indian soil in Ladakh have got a befitting response. India honours the spirit of friendship…she is also capable of giving an appropriate response to any adversary, without shying away. Our brave soldiers have proven that they will not let anyone cast an evil eye on the glory and honour of Mother India.
Friends, the entire country comes together in paying tributes to the bravery of our jawans who attained martyrdom in Ladakh. The entire country bows to them in reverence, with gratitude. Just like their family members, every Indian painfully regrets the loss. The inner sense of pride that families feel on the supreme sacrifice of their brave sons…their sentiment for the country, constitutes the true power, the might of the country. You might have seen parents of martyrs referring to sending other sons, other young family members too, to join the army. The words of the father of Shaheed Kundan Kumar of Bihar, keep echoing. He had mentioned sending even his grandsons to the army to defend the country. This spirit permeates across all martyr families. Truly, the sense of sacrifice displayed by these family members is worthy of veneration. The resolve with which our jawans made the supreme sacrifice for the security of Mother India, should be the aim of our lives….and this applies to each and every one of us.
Friends, before independence, in the realm of the defence sector, our country was ahead of many countries in the world. There used to be a multitude of ordnance factories. Many countries that lagged behind us then, are ahead of us now. After independence, we should have made efforts in the defence sector, taking advantage of our prior experience…. we did not. But today, in the fields of defence and technology, India is relentlessly endeavouring to advance on those fronts…. India is taking strides towards self-reliance…………….
It is said,VIDYA VIVADAYA DHANAM MADAAY, SHAKTIH PARESHAAN PARIPEEDNAYAKHALASYA SADHOH VIPAREETAM ETAT, GYAANAYDAANAYCH RAKSHANAY. Which means, a person who is wicked by nature, uses education to foster conflict, wealth for conceit and strength to trouble others. Whereas, a gentleman uses education for knowledge, wealth for helping and strength for protecting. India has always used her might, echoing the same sentiment. India’s solemn resolve is to safeguard her honour and sovereignty. India’s aim is – a self-reliant India. India’s tradition is -trust and friendship. India’s spirit is brotherhood. We shall keep moving ahead abiding by these principles.”
The words in bold shows middle finger to the China. This is a clear warning that India will fight with the wicked enemy. The supreme sacrifice of 20 soldiers would be an inspiration to be drawn from, for defending a war. China can go to hell with it’s reverse engineered weapons and fighter planes. Let it face a real war with real army.
The question is whether China wants to have a full fledged war and risk economic consequences of permanently losing a market of 1.4 billion people alongwith all investments of it’s companies which will be alien property?
For the record it has already alienated the trust of 80% of people of India, who were born after 1970 and had not witnessed the treachery of China with Nehru.
Why India did not in 1957 and why not today claim entire Tibet is perplexing. The Ruler of Kashmir was also claiming to be ruler of Tibet and annexed not only Jammu, Kashmir and Laddakh but also Tibet. See this stamp:
