secondly d'souza seems to be quite anti-chinese and believes that China
will undertake a military offensive against India in 2007 !
http://www.hinduonnet.com/thehindu/2...0400571200.htmMUMBAI, DEC. 3. Some of the most distinguished former military men are highly apprehensive about the capability and intent of China and have warned that India should be on its guard and not lulled by the present tranquillity and peace on the border and Line of Control.
China has been building new roads in Tibet leading to the Indian territory and improving the existing one, even while laying a railway line to facilitate movement of large number of troops and their maintenance in the forward areas.
The Chinese, working for total supremacy in Asia, had found India to be their only rival in the race, though they are already leading in many areas. But now they want time so that their economic development progressed and their military strengthened.
The view emerged at a seminar organised by the Leslie Sawhny Programme in Mumbai on Sunday, that addressed itself to: ``India's Security Strategy - Historical Lessons and Future Responses.'' The former Chief of Army Staff, Gen. K.V. Krishna Rao (retd.), who presided over the deliberations, endorsed the views put forth by Maj. Gen. Eustace D'Souza who thought that the Chinese might wait till 2007 when they were hosting the
Olympics. Gen. Rao said that it could be even earlier.
I mean this bit REALLY made me laugh
http://www.friendsoftibet.org/sofar/triangle.htmlMajor General (Retd) Eustace D'Souza broke the ice by presenting the Indian case. D'Souza studied the defence and security issues of India vis-a-vis China-Tibet. Narrating his experiences of facing Chinese at the border when he served the Indian army, he said "with the Chinese, one should maintain one's position and they won't move an inch"
