... and US after investing two decades and several thousand men will look away while China, Pakistan & Russia run merry in Afghanistan. :)

Let China & Pakistan take complete control of Balochistan first. Then they can consider sharing the spoils of Afghanistan(mineral resources).
Share the spoils of war later?

The groundwork was laid a long time back.

China Metallurgical Group Corp., a state-owned conglomerate, signed a $3 billion contract with the Afghan Ministry of Mines and Petroleum to mine copper from a barren, mountainous region southeast of Kabul.

Mineral deals such as the copper mine in Logar, and the rights to explore for oil in the Amu Darya basin, on the northern Afghan border were also in operation. China National Petroleum Corp has also started operations in that region.

China has signed contracts to build a railroad through the Wakhan Corridor, the sliver of land northeast of Afghanistan jutting up against Xinjiang,

It has been happening from a long long time as far back as 2007.

The same is the case with other other countries like Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan. Turkmenistan is totally dependent on chinese loans and exports around 90% of its gas to
china.Turkmenistan sits upon around one-tenth of the world’s proven natural gas reserves all of which most of which is being exploited by china. A similar tale though not big can be seen in Iraq.

US has been letting china have its way in that region for a long time for multiple reasons one of them to prop up the economies there and prevent russia from expanding it's influence.

Now it seems to blow on their face.

Operations in Baluchistan will continue more or less as most of the insurgency is restricted to hiy and remote regions.


@ezsasa @mokoman makes you wonder how long have american elites been in bed with china.

Source of this news -





@Abdus Salem killed the cat is finally out of the bag.
Increasingly points towards a conflict, the situation kinda seems like the run up to 62 except it is not, the CDS's statements are not to be taken lightly, maybe the Chinese are waiting for our move, if it is a new re-adjustment then we might see them re-deployed in Pangong.

@mist_consecutive how possible is for India to carry further ops in these areas is the terrain favorable there.

Also after the pangong tso incident the Chinese will certainly be cautious to prevent a repeat of that situation. Do any sat images show heightened deployment in those areas.

Could be possible action in future does he not want to be caught again in the crosshairs of the army for putting out some sensitive info.
Did he say someone reprimanded him last time around? He did predict actions on Aug 29/30 few days before it happened. You can check this thread or the previous version of the thread.

And the details about it were too specific, which was then verified by some news reports after the action as well, a lot of what he said matched.

Yes i remember.

Sometime back you yourself found out he posted some sensitive info before the ops begun in this thread.

He might have caught some heat but he didnt say so publicly.

The correct person to answer this will be @Hellfire.

In my analysis, I don't see a reason why not. We although have a slight disadvantage of not having a bridge over Kugrung river which connects the point in Hotspring where Chinese are squatting.

But the major issue is we pulled back our troop strength & armour from Gogra-Hotspring area whereas China has not. If we can surprise them in some way then we can capture back the area, otherwise Chinese reinforcements can overwhelm us.

I predict the oncoming joint exercise of Army & ITBP may be used as a smokescreen to deploy more troops.

No signs of any flaring tension in satellite images or OSINT.

Starting of the month he had said he'll delete all his posts and account on 14th april and he did.
If someone is serving in the force, being on twitter is like a loaded weapon to your head and totally unnecessary and better to resist. It should be a strong reprimand policy for acting and recent retired and more long term ban for officer level corps. This is common sense....go for modeling or many vain professions if someone desires publicity and in need of likes...
