You have fought Pakistan for decades, Pakistan is still capable of bleeding you heavily. It has been proved that war is no good solution to complicate problems. Taiwan issue and island dispute with Japan all come down to the rivalry between China and US, without America's support, the two won't stand a chance against China. Once Chinese growth reaches a certain stage, America will give up on supporting Taiwan and Japan. We are not cowards, we are just smart and calm, we don't let emotion cloud our judgement. Americans encourage Japan and Taiwan to provoke and humiliate China, hoping to disrupt Chinese focus on building strength, well they certainly underestimate Chinese wisdom. Island dispute with Japan is a small issue, Chinese coast guard has been sailing around the island for years, it is yet to decide which side actually controls the island. Taiwan doesn't dare to declare independence, its own constitution states Taiwan is part of China, which leaves China enough legitimacy to take it back once the China and America reaches a certain power balance. India can keep on provoking China like you did in 2017, but won't gain nothing. It seems that India won in the doklam standoff, for Indians got away with invading Chinese territory. But underneath the superficial humiliation, China has accomplished every agenda we have planned. China has been planning to build military infrastructures in that region for years but can't because in peaceful time it will be seen as a gesture of provocation to build military infrastructure so close to the border. the stand off offered PLA a precious opportunity to build roads, camps and other facilities that will give PLA enormous advantage in the future. And China never promised the road extends to Bhutan to be suspended for ever, as of now Chinese workers might have already finished that road. Who knows! The 1962 war was not to take back South Tibet, but to " teach India a lesson", to curb India's ambition over Tibet, all the goals have been reached. After the war, China is able to protect Tibet with deploying the least military forces along the border. While India, deeply traumatized by the defeat, has been investing heavily in its defence building, wasting precious resources which could be allocated to other sectors. And that trauma continues to affect India's policy making until today, rendering India unable to make sound decisions, especially when it comes to decisions related to military defence.
