 To deal with Indias invasion of Nepal? An embarrassing fact revealed by the press


On September 20, several Indian media suddenly reported that the Chinese army had secretly built nine buildings in the khumla area of Nepal. After being discovered by Nepalese people, they refused to allow local villagers to approach. They also said that the Nepalese Security Forces and relevant departments had rushed to the scene.

India today links the incident to the Sino Indian border standoff as part of Chinas efforts to gain advantage over India on the border. This is not the first time that China has invaded the territory of Nepal. According to the report of the Ministry of agriculture of Nepal, China has occupied some land in Nepal more than two months ago, Indias Zee news said

But a careful analysis of these reports shows that it is not difficult to find a mystery among them. For example, there is only one vague picture in these reports, saying that the Ministry of internal affairs and foreign affairs of Nepal is aware of the matter, but there is no relevant department statement. India today only made a light comment at the end of the report: however, Nepals foreign minister denies any report of Chinas occupation of Nepals land.

We know that the content after the word but is often the focus of a sentence. But thats the end of India today.

The selective reports of Indian media have aroused the concern and curiosity of some Indian netizens. Many people forward the relevant contents and show their concern for Nepal.

Only a report on the website of the Kathmandu post today (September 21) showed Humala, but said that the Nepalese Army was building a road to the area, and did not mention China.

It is this report that presents the territorial disputes between Nepal and India.

This has caused some disputes within the Nepalese authorities. Some departments think that this is Nepalese territory and should be included in the census. However, some departments have raised practical problems: India will not allow Nepalese census workers to enter these areas.

It is worth mentioning that this post, which makes the Indian side unhappy, was set up to monitor the safety of the road being built by the Nepalese Army to the houmra area.

According to the reports of Nepalese media, it is the Indian army that has done such things as forbidding Nepalese to approach.

In fact, the territorial dispute between India and Nepal has been escalating during the Sino Indian border confrontation. In November last year, India issued a new version of the map, which forcibly included the disputed areas with Nepal. Nepal passed the constitutional amendment in May this year, which also included kalapani and other places. Just three days ago, Nepal also applied the updated maps to the new textbooks and coins.

Is the Indian media really concerned about the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Nepal? The answer is no, but this does not prevent the Indian media from concocting the territorial disputes between China and Nepal. As mentioned above, Indias Zee News reported for more than two months that Chinas occupation of Nepals land was denied by Nepals Ministry of agriculture at that time.

Subsequently, the Ministry of foreign affairs of Nepal also issued a statement stressing that if there are any problems, the Nepalese government and China will solve them through consultation between the two countries. The media should pay attention to verifying the information before commenting on sensitive issues that may adversely affect the relations between the two friendly neighbors. A few days later, Nepalese foreign minister jawali once again made it clear in public that there was no border dispute between Nepal and China and asked some media not to spread false news.

It is obvious why this kind of operation of printing media is concerned. A report on Russian satellite network in July quoted experts opinions and pointed out that the Indian media wanted to sow the seeds of discord between China and Nepal through similar reports.

But from the position of the Nepalese government, the Indian medias calculation is obviously wrong. In the current situation, instead of stirring up trouble everywhere, the press should remember five words:

Take care of yourself.

Since the border confrontation between China and India, the western media have paid close attention to this topic. Moreover, for the purpose of keeping China under control, their stance on the whole incident is basically on the Indian side. Recently, two U.S. strategic defense experts published articles on the website of wired to stir up the flames and advocate that India should not give in to China. If India cannot quickly reverse the current situation or take countermeasures, it will become more difficult for India to do so over time, the article said.

The two U.S. strategic defense experts said that if India changes the PLAs occupation of most of the land on the so-called Eastern Ladakh area, then Indias choice can only be described as worse, worse and disastrous.

According to a paper recently written for MIT Cambridge International Research Center by vipin Narang, an assistant professor at MIT, and Christopher Clary, a professor at State University of New York at Albany, India faces a bad choice to reverse the fait accompli tion of Chinas territorial possession and is difficult to achieve in practice, the article said u3002

They warn that the best time to take countermeasures is before they are fully controlled. They quoted Dan Altman of Georgia State University as saying that if the fait accompli of Chinas occupation of land in the so-called Ladakh area cannot be reversed or countered quickly, it will become more difficult to do so over time.

This is mainly because China has strengthened and consolidated its military presence and formed a new normal, which is the true portrayal of China and India in the so-called Ladakh region. In addition, the analysis entitled Bangong Lake dilemma: choices after the Sino Indian conflict argues that China is striving for time to consolidate its fortifications in strategic locations and to stick to them.

Two papers published by two U.S. strategic defense experts say that at the end of an international military dispute, and even for a decade thereafter, the winners tend to maintain control of the vast majority of land, which may be a new reality India must face.

According to the analysis, Indias first bad choice is to try to expel the Chinese peoples Liberation Army (PLA) directly from its occupied land. This is unwise. It means that the Indian army should deploy more troops and provide adequate material support, which has inherent defects in tactics and strategy. After all, time is on Chinas side, and the PLA is consolidating its new position. This, in turn, would make it more difficult for India to launch a limited coordinated attack anywhere, let alone a full-scale attack..

The terrain of the so-called Ladakh area is very good for defense, the article said. According to the Indian armys estimation, in the plain area, the attack defense ratio is 1:3, that is, one defender against three attackers. In the mountains, however, the ratio is 1:10, and in some cases even higher, similar to the situation experienced in the kagir war between the Indian army and Pakistan in 1999.

The second worse option for India, according to the MIT report, is to force the PLA to eventually withdraw from the so-called Ladakh area by seizing Chinese territory elsewhere in exchange for it. Although the Indian border special forces (SFF) took control of some of the main highlands on the South Bank of Bangong Lake at the end of August, senior Indian officers believe that this is not enough to force the PLA out of contact and withdraw.

However, the report warns that in the maritime sector, although Indias navy is comparable to the PLA Navy in the Indian Ocean, its military options in areas such as the South China Sea and the Western Pacific are extremely limited.

In addition, in terms of diplomacy, India may also seek to strengthen its alliance with Australia, Japan and the United States, which is still unable to force China to choose to give up.

According to the report, the third disastrous option may leave India with no choice but to accept the fait accompli of Chinas occupation of land and take advantage of the ambiguity of the definition and non delineation of the actual line of control along the Sino Indian border to recognize that it is not Indian territory, thus numbing its domestic influence.

The report added that India may have no choice but to accept in silence in the face of little military, diplomatic or economic options to reverse the fait accompli formed by China. India needs to deploy a stronger military force in the border areas. In times of economic prosperity, it is a challenge to try such deterrence, which is almost impossible to achieve in the face of this years outbreak of the new coronavirus pandemic and its devastating economic crisis.

The report also said that at present, Indias primary task is to avoid the occurrence of bloodshed on the Sino Indian border, and in the process of concrete implementation, it may lead to a long-term confrontation between the two neighboring countries.

The article concludes that although the report suggests three possible options for India to seek to deal with China. The first two of these options are very bad and, to some extent, irrational. But most importantly, Indias military planners need to realize that a strategy without tactics is the slowest way to victory, and that tactics without strategy is the uproar before defeat.
