South East Asia Facing The Crumb Catcher

Mao after Tibet annexation in late 50’s had announced from the dice that “Tibet is right hand Palm & it’s five fingers are Ladakh, Arunachal, Sikkim, Nepal & Bhutan”

Long post, readers discretion solicited.

Mao after Tibet annexation in late 50’s had announced from the dice that “Tibet is right hand Palm & it’s five fingers are Ladakh, Arunachal, Sikkim, Nepal & Bhutan”. Ladakh being the first finger will be the first after Tibet to be remapped to Dragon. This dangerous strategy is being manifested militarily. The exiled head of central tibetian administration Mr. Lobasang is also reported to have warned India just today. Galwan valley is where ground facts have been altered substantially by the dragon. Troops mobilisation has been surged on the borders of all five fingers of the palm. China also claims that they’re ready on all fronts to engage India. Given the recent brutal thrashing & culling of para troopers of India who had reportedly ventured to capture the occupied peaks in Galwan valley has shaken the Indian circles from common man to ones welding the gates of power corridors.

US in the run upto POTUS election slated to November this year must be highly unwilling to throw it’s weight behind India militarily given it’s recent announcement of not Indulging in wars abroad as made by Trump to woe the voters who have been against any such misadventures as experienced in Vietam & Afganistan. The situation in US is exactly akin to that of 1960’s when Dr. Martin Luther King was vying for the rights of the black aboriginal Americans which saw huge protests especially after the Rosa Park bus incident in Montgomery Alabama – the southern America. At that time also President Johnson was made to bring back the troops from Vietnam. America might support India but not militarily can be a harsh reality for India forcing it to give up the idea of engaging the dragon.

If that was not enough the recent back turning of Japan on the Aegis Ashore System installation deal with the US has raised certainly the ante pounding to ground the ambitions of US in South China Sea since the so called younger brother Japan has almost turned down the deal given it’s peace on the Korean peninsula which doesn’t warrant for such installation as of now. This will certainly nudge US a bit but the 60 years of mutual relationship won’t go down the drain in a jiffy. There are various reasons for the deal to be turned down. The bottom line is that US has reasons to stay alert & away from engaging China. We saw how belligerent stance the dragon has taken as exhibited by it’s turning down of a third party intervention in Indo-China standoff. Russia  under the weight of the S-Series missile defense system deal with India might have been expected to raise the flag against the dragon but then they are both communist ideology driven , the US being Russia’s foe for 70 plus years also cancels the possibility of rescuing India to the benefit of US hegemony in South Asia.

Lately India’s neighborhood seems to be bolstered with antagonistic players jockeying for a nibble against Indian held contentious positions especially under PM Modi’s regime which has a stupendous majority in its Parliament unprecedented in last governments mostly formed under Indian National Congress, the main opposition party of India as of now. Nepal, whose national assembly passed a constitutional amendment incorporating areas namely Lipulekh, Kalapani & Limpiyadura as it’s territories in its map contended by India vociferously.

Ties with Bangladesh were also severely strained by the enactment of a controversial  law to regulate the citizenship rights which has been seen by Bangladesh as an infringement upon the rights of Muslims who have migrated to India from its neighboring countries.Huge protests were reported from Bangladesh. PM Modi’s March 2020 visit doesn’t seem to have cooled any tempers in the erstwhile East Pakistan since all the officially planned visits to India at the diplomatic front were canceled by the heir of ” Bangabandhu” Sheikh Mujib u Rehman.
