No one has been focusing on this issue of Kashmir, who are the powers behind it? Who stirs trouble in Indian Kashmir? What are Chinese troops doing in
Pakistani Kashmir, and why is there more Indian troops in Indian Kashmir, than US troops in Afghanistan?
The conflict is huge, and clearly hidden.
The claim that more than 7,000 Chinese troops have been handed "de facto control" of Gilgit-Baltistan, a northern part of Kashmir, by Islamabad, has
set alarm bells ringing in Delhi. India – which, like its nuclear-armed rival Pakistan, claims the entire state – has long been worried that the
People's Liberation Army was working on roads and railway projects in the Karakoram mountains.
China is pushing through Pakistan, towards India, while Pakistan is using its influence on Muslim Kashmiris to stir trouble within Indian Kashmir and
cause Kashmir to divide from India. This is a battle between China and India.
The question then is, why the heck is India risking its friendship with the US and trying to make deals with Iran?
he will be met with pleas from the government against the imposition of US sanctions on a consortium of Indian state-run oil firms that plan to invest
nearly US$8 billion in Iran's rich Farsi gas fields.
Why is India trying to get closer to Iran? And risk loosing US support, without that support, China and Pakistan would put huge pressure on India and
force it to collapse.
The reason I suspect is, that everyone knows the US is loosing influence in that part of the region therefore the whole political arena has been
transformed. Everyone is taking different sides, and making new alliances. Pakistan is already fighting a proxy war against the US in Afghanistan, in
that sense the US needs India to put pressure on Pakistan, but India is under pressure from China. In that sense, India knows it has much to loose
from staying in the US pact, and much to gain from shifting alliance, and keeping the relationships stronger at local level, hence Iran is in the same
continent as India, and to have better relations, and to have more trade at local level.
Despite India’s historically established territorial claims to the region, China terms the area “disputed,” a description that it has now begun
to extend to the whole of the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir.
China is slowly talking the talk, then walking the walk.
Now, why does India have more troops in Indian Kashmir than US troops in Afghanistan? Maybe because China and Pakistan has already stirred deep
trouble in Kashmir, the protests are growing by the day, and people are even willing to leave their homes when curfew is implemented, and an order to
shoot those opposing the curfew is given.
It seems people want freedom, but that is the political mistake of India, because those people who want freedom will always be used as tools for other
powers (for example the Afghan Mujahideen).
India should have know, and given independence to Kashmir. That way, India won't have to worry about falling in to pieces, or loosing other
territories with much less separatist voices.
What do you think will happen to the Maoist separatists? After the Kashmir uprising reaches a boiling point, and gains independence? The next effort
will go to the Maoists, and they will gain moral support from the Kashmiris, and also military and other support from Pakistan and China during the
Chaos of independence.
Very interesting times.
What are your thoughts?
