While i the other thread is running and things are being discussed there, i was thinking what role would Bangladesh play in a future Sino Indian war. Points to think about are: 1) Will it serve or will india use it as strategic depth in the event of a massive chinese invasion that forces us to retreat? Will BD allow that? 2) Even if there is no massive invasion that forces us to retreat but China does manage to choke us at chickens neck and cutting off NE from rest of India, will BD allow its territory to be used for logistics? 3) In the event of BD deciding to stay "neutral" and not allowing India space in the above two scenarios. will India violate BD airspace to supply NE or actually invade BD to "buy" space? 4) Will China use its increasing cozyness with BD to pre supply front organizations with war supply close to Indian border esp Assam which could be used if they mount an airborne assault. I think if there is any major hostilities between India and China, the role of BD could be pretty crucial.
