Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that this is an excellent review of events on the Chinese front by the author. What our party has been stating on the Doklam standoff matches somewhat what the author has analysed as he has as a professional, more deeper information than we have. Ours has been a mere guess work having some knowledge of the Hindu mind.
However the author has misread the great statesman Otto von Bismarck as he did enunciate a strong military policy for Germany when he united small states which were in the hundreds, if my memory is correct, into one state.
But when his benefactor and mentor King or rather Emperor Wilhelm died and the power that Bismarck had built, both military and diplomatic passed on to the complete frivolous and jingoistic Emperor Fredrick who sent Bismarck packing. Only Bismarck knew as a juggler how to handle the secret and not so secret treaties he had made.
Fredrick was immature like Premier Narinder Modi and put to use the military and diplomatic strength Bismarck had built. Jingoism and the glory of ancient Hindu Indian’s, their inventions and discoveries have always been very heady for the RSS-BJP. Now lets see them in action. We hope they will do better than Nehru, Menon and General Kaul. Kaul who was in charge of the front in 1962, when he heard of the first skirmish he quickly drank down a big dose of desi soap water and got himself admitted in hospital. Even without that dose, hearing of the Chinese ingress we think he would have got the chattacks (in English slang it means very bad loose motions).
