China is a bully and looks to make the world subservient to it, yet this cannot be farther than reality. Negotiations are not yielding any positive results and China is only tiring India in political bluffs.

China has been expansionist since the PRC's establishment in 1949. Now that "China Joe" is president, however, don't look for help from the US.

Agree with CPT, has nothing to do with who is POTUS. India's problem is past treaties on Kashmir which limits it's military response to not much. It's arms in the Kashmir are limited by treaty and I think so is the number of overall troops. China knows it and is taking advantage.

China's official Xinhau News yesterday cheered Trump leaving the White House and lauded Biden. Trump's nickname could be "Hammer of the Chinese," Biden will probably negotiate like the Obama administration did with Iran, giving away the farm for vague promises. If I were India, I would look to my priming and keep my powder dry. China WILL take advantage.

1SG Steven Imerman - Seriously we only really have 2 years max of Biden. Pretty sure they will flip the House or both House and Senate back to Republican control.

China has been very busy as a bully all over Southeast Asia to include not only India, but South Korea, Taiwan, Vietnam just to start the list. Trying to claim an ocean, the South China Sea as there because its called the South China Sea. Establishing and even making Islands to forward deploy their Military forces to enforce their control once they have taken over. Even on the African continent buying their way into control. It very obvious what China's plan is and step by step they are moving forward with it.

After African nations realized China's game plan, they turned to the U.S. and European allies for loans to payoff high interest Chinese preferred loans. The TANZAM Railway project was one such African project and the Sahara Solar Farm project, which eventually warded to GE, a U.S. institution known as experts in refinancing debts.

Nuking Islamabad might get their attention and potentially solve a different problem too. That's not socially acceptable, but I grew up around the Air Force and Curtis Lemay.

CPT Gurinder (Gene) Rana - Some quotes from Lemay. "Actually, I think it's more immoral to use less force than necessary, than it is to use more. if you use less force, you kill off more of humanity in the long run, because you are merely protracting the struggle." "Apply whatever force it is necessary to employ, to stop things quickly. The main thing is stop it. The quicker you stop it, the more lives you save." “We should always avoid armed conflict. But if you get in it, get in with both feet and get out as soon as possible.”
I have always been of the opinion that if it is in the national interest to engage in an armed conflict, it ought to be worth stomping everything that opposes you flat. Instead we are saddled with politicians that think you can fight wars without killing or offending anyone. That hasn't worked out very well.

CPT Lawrence Cable, politically, if the problem ensues and China is kept on it's edge of the LAC through winter, public sentiments for the Narender Modi government will rise steeply. Territory must not be lost to China in the process of playing politics.
