Comments on: Is India downplaying Chinese border intrusions? http://blogs.reuters.com/india/2009/09/08/is-india-downplaying-chinese-border-intrusions/ Perspectives on South Asian politics Thu, 02 Jun 2016 08:03:22 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Laramie http://blogs.reuters.com/india/2009/09/08/is-india-downplaying-chinese-border-intrusions/comment-page-1/#comment-16811 Mon, 24 Jan 2011 08:02:28 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/india/?p=1877#comment-16811 No one mentioned about the MacMohon Line when and how it it was drawn. When China was weak many nations took advantage and carved a piece of real estate. May be the younger gerations do not know World History during the 1900s.To the West whatever China does is wrong. How Hong Kong became a British Colony? The MacMohon Line is Not recognised by China. I am repeating History and should not be seen as libeous.

McMohon which was never shown to the Chinese in 1914.The MacMohon Line shown as territory of British-India 23 years later. This Line added 90,000 square kilometers of Tibet’s territory into British-Indian colony. In order to have peace the Line should be redrawn. There is nothing wrong for Chinese aircraft to fly into their own territory. Please refer to history.

Indians now have no trust in other countries too. But we can deal with china with our democracy and it will ruin china with people to people contact and by doing so, chinese will understand Budha will and can give more advices to chinese than they gave in 1962 to us. Chinese mistake of 1962 will dare them to attack inda again. War is not Olypics and it is waste of time and lives with oss of enormous wealth and will ruin both countries which Europeans would laugh and win over the so called Asian Giants like India and China. See the fate of Japan – they (Europeans) don’t want Japan and Asia in thrones like Americans. The leaders of China must know and understand its big neighbours and settle the disputes much earlier and avoid writings against India in their dailies which Indians read and foes of China and India will utilise for their own ulterior goals. So take steps to mould the relationship.

The Sino Indian boarder has been peaceful during the last 4 decades. The decision of the Government to allow Dalai Lama to viisit Arunachal seems to be a tactical error of judgment. China is oversensitive aboout the proposed visit of the Tibetal Spiritual Leader. We have no justified reason to incur the Chinese wrath for the sake of Dalai Lama. What is our interest in him? The talk of our independent policy in such matters smacks of idealism in preference to our national interest and security.

Every one knows that China is our main adversary. It is far stronger than India as an economic and military power. In that fateful year, 1962, our P.M. declared to evict them from our soil, but failed miserably to do so. In fact “we were caught napping”, without requisite defence preparedness. We hadn’t even good quality small arms. The relative military might between the two countries does not seem to have altered much both in conventional and nuclear capabilities. We cannot afford to repeat the past mistakes. Military and political wisdom dictates us to first concentrate on acquiring adequate strength before challenging provoking or challenging an adversary even for the justified exercise of our sogereign rights.

From years we have been calmly watching neighbourhood countries regularly conducting all such kind of activties but the only action we take (When media take the responsibilty and highlight all these matters) is to sit for an urgent meeting with US and follow there instruction. Its sad i bet you.

The puppet congressis and politicians of mecca and rome have slipped in countless Chinese into India and China has increased war tones. Will we be able to fight two wars? One with Chinese and another with the smuggled in Chinese and the Communists of India?

PLEASE USE THIS CORRECT VERSION.

Frank, from what I’ve seen, Indians, Pakistanis, Bangladeshis and other South Asians get along quite normally at a people-to-people level. But “friendships” between the South Asian countries on a national level get a little more complicated. It’s a good question that I think Indians on a governmental basis should be asking and should seriously contemplate. All countries have areas needing improvement, but the resilient Indian democracy has a way of rubbing incompatible systems the wrong way. And it is possible that the Indian democracy, economy and media have created at least a few anxieties and jealousies across the borders. Democracies are unlikely to go to war with each other, but unfortunately not all political systems in the South Asian neighborhood have had a lot of success with democracy, if at all. Let’s hope that whatever the differences between the political systems, all countries at least manage to get along. We need peace in the neighborhood.
