 To get involved again? The US State Department said it was closely following the border dispute between China and India


[global network reporter Li Dongyao] to join in? The United States is closely following the border dispute between India and China and hopes for a peaceful settlement, a state Department spokesman said on September 1, local time.

Just before the foreign ministry spokesmans response, counsellor Ji Rong, spokesman of the Chinese Embassy in India, made a great deal of concern. A spokesman for the embassy said that on August 31, the Indian army violated the consensus reached at the earlier multi-level talks between the two sides and illegally crossed the line again in the area south of Bangong Lake and near the reqin mountain pass in the western section of the Sino Indian border, openly provoking, resulting in renewed tension on the border. Indias actions have seriously violated Chinas territorial sovereignty, relevant agreements and important consensus between the two countries, and seriously damaged the peace and tranquility in the border areas between China and India.

The spokesman stressed that what India has done is contrary to the efforts made by both sides to ease and cool down the local situation for some time. China firmly opposes this. China has made solemn representations to the Indian side, demanding that India strictly control and restrain the front-line forces, earnestly abide by its commitments, immediately stop all provocative acts, immediately withdraw illegal personnel crossing the line, and immediately stop any actions that lead to the escalation and complexity of the situation.

In the recent tense confrontation between China and India, despite Indias frequent advocacy of being tough with China, South Asian experts at Walter schoenstein Asia Pacific Research Center at Stanford University in the United States have poured cold water on it. According to the papers published by the center, there are structural contradictions in the Indian army and the lack of winning theory, which will lead to a dilemma when the Indian army may use force.

Indias theprint website said on August 31 that the latest paper published by Stanford University showed that the Indian armys traditional military doctrine made its military strategy unable to play a role in the Ladakh conflict. Reported that the ground forces dominate Indias military strategy. Since independence, India has fought five wars in the turbulent northern land border. The Indian army accounts for a large proportion of the military budget and is growing, accounting for 57% of the military budget (air force 23%, Navy 14%). At the same time, the Indian army accounted for a larger proportion of the total force, reaching 85% (air force 9%, Navy 4%), but did not seem to play its due role..

The researchers believe that the Indian army and even the entire Indias previous defense policy is dominated by an offensive doctrine. The winning theory of the theory is based on the deterrent logic of punishment, that is, India threatens to retaliate at a high cost to prevent the enemys invasion. The cost of the so-called punishment is usually to seize the enemys territory as a bargaining chip. According to the study, this offensive theory has been practiced in Indias previous conflict with Pakistan. However, in the 20 years since the outbreak of conflict between India and Pakistan in the kagir region in 1999, three major strategic trends have fundamentally changed Indias security environment: nuclear deterrence makes large-scale conventional war impossible; Chinas military strength and courage constitute unprecedented challenges; radical new technologies redefine the advanced army. Indias security policy has not kept pace.

India is unable to decisively defeat Pakistan or China on the battlefield, given the balance of military power on Indias northern border, the report said. Indias military doctrine cant deter an adversary if it cant afford to make its opponent pay a high price - both China and Pakistan have great determination to bear the cost of conflict.. If India continues to pursue a large-scale and offensive military option, it will increase the risk of the enemys armed escalation and even nuclear reaction.

According to the paper, the Indian army lacks the key capabilities to prevent or defeat adversaries in the modern information age, especially the C4ISR (command, control, communication, computer, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) functions, cannot integrate sensors, launch platforms, long-range weapons and communication systems, and lacks an organizational framework for joint deterrence and combat. The conclusion of the paper is that the most fundamental problem of the Indian army is the lack of a winning theory in line with the times, which makes it difficult for the Indian army to effectively deter and fight when necessary.
