According to the LOC, "In 1844, presidential candidate James K. Polk urged an aggressive stance with regard to ownership of the land below the 54th parallel. The slogan “Fifty-four Forty or Fight” became a rallying cry of the Polk campaign..."
"... Two years later, the U.S. and Great Britain signed the Oregon Treaty setting the Canadian-American border at the 49th parallel and granting the United States territory that included present-day ID, OR, and WA. In 1848, Congress designated this...the “OR Territory.” (LOC)

India China ongoing stand off thread

Remember I mentioned I make a thread on it so here it is. I am going to make it simple clear & not too much of detail. Every info you need is already out there so this is just a collation of already established facts

First thing India always demonstrated a Pak centric defense strategy which is extremely low bar and by virtue of that itself it gives Pak an upper hand. China is different matter all together. The Communist China & India were military equals in 1990 but then a major war in Gulf
Many people don't know under Sadam Hussein 1990 Iraq had one of Asia's most formidable Military forces

Its army 1 million men strong, 700 Fighter Jets including Mig 29, 35 & 4500 Tanks and almost 300 Helicopter with relatively advanced Air Defense all well trianed battle hard

What has #China gained so far?

1. Paranoid 🇮🇳 top brass/policy makers who will focus more inland ($$) than maritime i.e. CDS/Map lovers
2. Pulse check on #QUAD & #US reaction
3. Foundation stone of double squeeze #LOC~#LAC
4. Strengthening of newly raised #PLA Western Theatre.
China’s mission is to break both island chains by 2030-35 by massive build up of Naval & Air powers. Already artificial islands are there & no one can do anything other than odd USN vessels with flag conducting freedom of navigation. None of US allies want war nor have stomach Image
All countries in Pacific rely on same geography that they want to turn against China. Its kind of self defeating to cage a dragon while you’re in it. I’m not even bringing economical angle to this and what will happen to beast of capitalism, #Covid has set the tone for 2020s :)

There are many questions on the reasons of the escalation and who started the fire first on the #Armenian-#Azerbaijani border in #Tavush/#Tovuz regions yesterday. What is clear is that: 1/7
Both governments were ready for the escalation as the negotiations reached impasse since the last developments including the statements of Armenian PM in #Stepanakert (August 2019), inauguration of the leader of the self-proclaimed government of NK in #Shusha (May 2020),etc. 2/7
This is why the argument of distracting both societies from the unsuccessful struggle against the pandemic of #coronavirus has little ground: it was expected to start anyway. 3/7

Surely every serious national security strategist understands the distinction btwn Govts Geopolitical decisions and th military's detailed scenario planning & action program. A govt can decided on basis of expected value of outcome or worst case scenarios-the latter is paralyzing
2/ns The critical issue in China-India conflict is that,as of now (2020), #China controls the #escalatory ladder. So India's #National #Security Apparatus has to make assumptions about when and how #CCPpla will escalate, if it loses the first few steps on its escalatory ladder!
3/ns The worst case scenario for us is therefore the one in which after loosing previous escalations, #CCP China escalates to a full fledged war/attack on India, by shifting US-facing troops and highest quality equipment towards India. This has proved paralyzing for past Govts!🤔

I remember i chat i had with a British Man during Doklam standoff

His dad was a 20yo Bren LMG gunner during Korean war against China PLA

The PLA identified that the Bren can fire hot continuously for 2 barrels change only

Now his dad and his fellow LMG crewman carried an extra barrel despite it being very heavy

In their first engagement the PLA charged at their positions when they changed 2 barrels, but becoz they had a extra 3rd Barrel they were ready and it was a Turkey Shoot 😂

Apparently the PLA never communicated this tactic and they passed on this info resulting in scores of PLA getting cut down during Charges

The PLA generally charge at them sounding loud bugles 📯and screaming bayonet waving, but his dad was well trained and kept calm

20 Indian braves made the supreme sacrifice of their lives protecting Indian territory from Chinese salami slicing. At each flash point Indian army & Chinese communist party's army remain deployed. Is this now #LAC turning into #LoC or like #AGPL? We can't trust the Chinese ever!
Has India lost land to Chinese salami slicing in the past? Hundreds of square kilometres of precious pasture land. When did India last exercise control till Finger 8? When China built a road to Finger 4 in 1999 what did the then ABV Govt do? And subsequent governments till date?
The enemy is China. Govt Vs Opposition on China's treachery at #LAC benefits the enemy. Bury differences to have a firm National response to Chinese transgressions & use comprehensive national power to ensure China gets the message it's barbaric actions along LAC are unacceptable
