QUAD as a military alliance was pretty frivolous from the begining. It is aimed at South China Sea trying to supress the ever increasing Chink Ganndmasti there. The countries involved is USA, Japan and Australia, who already have military alliance.

As far as Indian Ocean is concerned US views India with the same way as they view China in SCS, and US wants to preserve its hegemonic ways in Indian Ocean.

As far as Himalayan border LAC with China is concerned none of US, Japan, Australia is concerned. It is our own headache.
QUAD died on 20 January 2021. Sooner we realise the better.

US military-enthusiast handles are surprised with the angry response on Indian SM over this FONOP. Apparently US Navy carries out FONOPs around the world, and has been sailing through Indian EEZ once every 2 years on average, putting out press releases about the FONOP each time.

If this particular incident is raising eyebrows, it's probably because it's mistimed (deliberately?). It comes when we're in the thick of important state elections, and it dents Modi's image.

US 7th Fleet’s patrol in India’s EEZ was an act of impropriety
In an atmosphere of rapidly warming Indo-US relations, this gratuitous public declaration, coming within weeks of the US-led Quad Leaders virtual meeting and on the heels of a major Indo-US naval exercise can only be seen as an act of breath-taking inanity. The impropriety becomes even more obvious when viewed against the background that the “international law” being cited by Commander 7th Fleet is a UN Convention which resulted from the third UN Conference on Law of the Seas (UNCLOS 1982).


India has ratified the Convention, which came into force in 1994, but there is rich irony in the fact that amongst the 168 nations who have either acceded to or ratified UNCLOS 1982, the US is conspicuous by its absence. The UN Secretariat has not charged any country with the role of overseeing or enforcing the implementation of UNCLOS.

USA has a way of probing and walking over making it a norm.
Cant let umricunts do it their way, no matter what warming relations USA has with India.

Here’s another angle to look at this..

there is another incident that is happening in SCS while this FONOP fiasco was happening..

PLA has sent missile catamarans to Philippines to spartly islands area, obviously following the same modus operandi as before. send fishing boats first, followed by coast guard and military boats, and occupy and create a new island.

which can be inferred as every move PLA makes has a purpose, in this case territorial land grab.

on the other hand pentagon is more keen to do symbolic military moves rooted in previous Cold War tactics to justify their 700 billion $ budget, which does nothing but inflate egos of a few senators.

in essence, PLA doing practical moves with a practical purpose and pentagon doing symbolic moves.

Maybe not, but Modi's opposition does, and Lutyens media has the ability to weaponize this against Modi.
Janata still won't give a damn.. :bplease:
Unless it's the muzzies to the west that kick us.. Indian Janta are cool ( not the twitterati.. but the voters who constitute most of Modi's vote bank..)

We need to saturate Lakshadweep with Brahmos and AD cover..
Yes.. India's straight baseline claims in Lakshadweep are not consistent with UNCLOS.. But, then US Congress has not ratified UNCLOS.. So, US shenanigans in South China sea or Indian ocean do not hold water..

What is our own capabilities? We should not be an ally of USA, the capitalists and communists both backstab.
Yes you are right china ka ally banane ka koi chance hi nahi hai hindi chini bhai bhai kiya tha to 1962 mila tha aur rahi baat usa ki to ye yaad rakha us ne humare kai scientist ko assassinate kiya hai and pakistan ko abhi bhi arms supply karwa raha hai humme jab tak sanctions nahi lagati tab tak humme atmanirbhar banana hoga nahi to agar sanctions lag gaye to economy ke liye china aur weapons ke liye Russia pe dependent ho jayenge

Wonder what would happen if Biden tried this against North Korea?
No doubt he wants a Nobbel peese prise
Getting out of the shit storm in Afghanistan can probably get him that, or perhaps Iran

But North Korea doesn't give a rat's ass about biden's muscle flexing, it'll be a wakening call

USA will 100% invade Iran. And China will 100% invade Taiwan.
India should make sure we 100% Invade Pakistan occupied Jammu Kashmir & Gilgit Baltistan.
