    If one recalls, the Chinese posters, when they had started visiting this forum, used to claim that none in China cared much about India or its interaction in the world.

    Actually, there came a time in the recent past, when Indians too did not care since there was not much to care about except to watch the Govt blunder from one blunder to the other and remain moribund, impotent and supine.

    However, with the advent of Modi, China took India in its stride and shed some of its benign complacency to take note.

    However, with Modi's excursions abroad making a mark everywhere including in Sri Lanka, which China thought was in their pocket and with the latest proactive interactive tour in the Indian Ocean region, its has put China on fire since China thought it was a done ballgame that China had influenced peddled in the Indian Ocean Region most affirmatively and successfully.

    Indeed, China is now seriously concerned and worried that the initiative and influence built up over the years at great expense, to include money, is slowly slipping out of their hand.

    That, and the fact that Modi is having no qualms to execute difficult non populist schemes that are putting India into the realm of becoming a power engine has made China's pant go on fire.

    :D
    Exact response India had expected from China.. :D

    China thought that money could buy friends( our Chinese posters in here...use the buying power to show Chinese influence and 'relationship' :D)..but statecraft is a whole other thing.

    There are few things money can buy..for everything else..there is diplomacy!!

    Ethnic, historic and cultural similarity also plays a role.

    One finds it uncomfortable if alien looking folks,with out of the world culture, weird food habits romp around as if they own the land.

    Many Indians who love Chinese food, as they know it, find China's Chinese food weird and way out in its taste and choice of meats or fish or whatever.

    But say what you want, the array of what the Chinese can eat, leaves the world in wonderment since they find many of the choice loathsome and disgusting.

    India SHOULD interfere in Sri Lanka's "internal affairs" to ensure it does not take anti-India actions. I am ALL for such interference.

    Sri Lanka cannot be allowed to become a nightmare for India's security. People forget that Sri Lanka is too close for comfort; and has vast potential for mischief.

    Proactive actions are needed on GOI's part to ensure Sri Lanka remains within its limits. If not, then strict action is needed.

    Yeah right. Strict action. AFAIK last India lost it's PM and 1000 of soldiers due to the strict action. It also paved the way for the downfall of the then government.

    Indian should not interfere.

    India should mere assist when asked.

    IPKF lost soldiers because the aim was not clear. Initially to maintain peace and then to enforce peace and the whole thing remained half way home.

    Do you really feel that SL has the ability as Pakistan?

    If Pakistan has been defeated repeatedly four times, do you really think SL has a chance?

    Sri Lanka never asked India to come and help. India came with there own will.

    Sri Lanka is not Pakistan and Sri Lanka don't have a Punjab plain and a Thar desert.

    Moreover Sri Lankans aren't Muslims. If India ever intervene in SL militarily there will serious backlash from USA/EU if UNP is in the parliament or from China if Mahinda is in the parliament.

    You must bone up before you write.

    Let me educate you and fill the gap in your knowledge.

    Indian Peace Keeping Force was the Indian military contingent performing a peacekeeping operation in Sri Lanka between 1987 and 1990. It was formed under the mandate of the Indo-Sri Lankan Accord signed between India and Sri Lanka in 1987 that aimed to end the Sri Lankan Civil War between militant Sri Lankan Tamil nationalists such as the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) and the Sri Lankan military.

    When I alluded to India defeating Pakistan four times, it was a polite way to rebuff your Dutch courage brouhaha that you can take on India. I meant compared to Pakistan and it military might, you are minnows or even insect like in size and inventory.

    If the aim of the IPKF was to take over SL, then you were but only a pushover.

    If it is done now, before there is a backlash from anywhere, it would be over before anyone will realise.

    You must understand SL is vulnerable from ALL sides.

    However, that is not India's aim and never will be.

    I wouldn't expect any other response apart from this very one from the Chinese side.
    In any case, the Indian ocean islands are majorly impacted by India. India subsidized Sri lanka's rail project extend only 2 years back.

    The issue here is basic, we can't let China assume control over the island on the grounds that its certain China will utilize it against India of the apprehension that US may utilize India against China. (Later on).

    Furthermore, it is essential for stalling India's economy from not being risen.
