    Right now, the thing which makes America more paranoid and insecure than anything is China.

    PoK is right now part of a grand scheme which will effectively give china "two coastlines" and will form part of its most vital energy corridor.

    America and India have seen eye-to-eye on several issues so far, but there are even more which could be endorsed.

    America is also wary of the fact that China bordering Pakistan via PoK is a great strategic benefit to China.

    Not to mention that us holding PoK would allow us to border A'stan - something which US wants a lot for its efforts there, as we are more reliable than Pak

    If we control PoK, we have China's IOR maritime energy by the balls - what more could the US ask for?

    In my opinion there is greater chance of success if attempts are made to create POK as an independent country. This is a intermediary step ofcourse.

    US will never opt for that. This will deteriorate their relations with Pakistan. Pakistan will thus line up closely with China and USA will lose a strategic ally.

    Its India which needs to take initiative, America blesses or not, Its India's land & they have to take it.

    But yes, if we can take over POK, nothing like it but the question is, is GOI really interested & is there any road map for that.

    Americas blessings :bs:?
    Depending on the American policy and China Containment strategy played out in Pakistan and its peripheries...India can rephrase its Realpolitik as deamed fit.
    Basically thats pretty much how the world works... Doesnt need America's help for Indian needs.

    India could get involved to get back PoK but India is waiting for the right political moment to strike. Gilgit is a vital chock point. When USA dismantle Pak and distort it from within raising the stakes high for Pakistan India can act according to its will and get back its rightful land.

    China is using Pakistan to create issues for India in Afghanistan becuase of Balochistan and its stakes in Gwadar port. Balochs and USA has their own interests in Balochistan. Pakistan will soon be a nightmare for China.

    India can adapt accordingly and strengthen her position.
