More of peaceful china nonsense

Invasions are driven not by rational strategists but by imperialists. Take the case of Alexandar or Pakistani jihad. They wouldn't have stepped out of their house if they went by the rational strategists. It is a pity that we have such guys formulating our policy. China is fueled by an imperialistic ambition and any failure to recognize this is a Nehruvian blunder (pun?). China's huge investments in the hostile Tibetan terrain to make it more accessible to troops has completely been ignored by this "Harvand-trained economist and China scholar". Or the splashing around on water issues. China's position in Aksai Chin gives it a superiority to neutralize any Indian Air Force superiority.

We all know the purpose of this article - not to provide any objective assessment and inform the reader but to peddle more of that peaceful China nonsense. The only difference is that chindu roped in someone with a "Harvard, China scholar" tag instead of the regulars. Same old stuff, really.

On our borders and contiguous areas, moreover, the Indian Air Force is far superior while the terrain on our side of the border provides a much shorter and friendlier supply chain. China’s is very long and through more hostile terrain. Invasion therefore cannot be in the mind of the rational Chinese strategist.
