    One wonders about the relevancy of such military diplomacy when border incursions have continuously been on the rise and the latest incursion of some 150kms is happening at a time when the Tibetan railway has ruffled many a feather in the Indian establishment.

    Is China really keen on maintaining tranquility on her southern borders or is she contemplating another shooting war?

    Sir,

    Such CBMs if we want to call it so, dont really work in our neighborhood. Both with Pakistan and China. We were all gung ho about our relations with China when 62 happened. No matter how old that becomes, it remains a sore wound for us. No matter how much military to military contacts we have with China, the border issue remains and it will remain as a flash point between India and China.

    Mohan, it was a typo.

    Yusuf,

    The real problem lies in the policos ambivalence regarding Chinese designs. The InA doesn't takes these moves lightly, the GoI does and they have no idea of the impact this "nothing serious about all these" has on Chinese perception about our war preparedness. The Chinese treat our politicians as lame ducks who will buckle under the slightest pressure and bend backwards to pretend "what's happening isn't really happening". The InA is more than competent to interdict these patrols and pass the baton on, only if the political establishment shows the spines to stand-up. Failing this, these border incursions and boulder collages would continue indefinitely.

    Its mostly situational. Accross the IB, it might warrant an interdiction, even shootouts. Accross the LAC, it might warrant compulsive warnings and escalation to staff level exchanges. I doubt that fixed rules are followed and it mostly depends upon the situation and what the interdicting party "thinks and believes".

    Sir, is there no effort by the army to force the issue by firing on intruders who violate according to our maps? I have never heard of Indian troops firing either at the IB or LAC on the intruders.
