Napoleon was a brilliant soldier and Xi must be an extraordinary politician to survive in China but both of them make horrible military-political blunders.
The $400 billion deal was first proposed in a Jan 2016 trip to Iran by Xi Jinping. Around the same time in May 2016, Indian PM Modi visited Iran to sign the 10-year Chabahar port contract. Was Modi in Iran for a great future gameplan?
The Tocqueville Paradox says–reforms by a weakened dictatorship tends to trigger a revolution. China is witnessing the same. This is the right time for India to take on China on a non-military front.
Deception has been an age old tactic of China. Sun Tzu’s strategies may help Xi Jingping in internal politics but not in case of a war, which now is a certainty. Albeit, this will not be India’s war alone.

India now recognizes that China has long been playing with it’s words and almost always has reneged from it’s promises. This is why invitation to Tibetan President-in exile, Lobsang Sangay, to India’s national TV, RajyaSabha TV, is being seen as a big move from the Indian side.
Pakistan takes solace in dictatorship every decade or so since it came into existence. The last dictatorship of Gen. Parvez Musharaf ended in 2008.

If only good merited as much excitement as bad, we in media, would perhaps not be needing self-introspection; nor would we be the recipients of brickbats instead of bouquets from our readers/viewers today.
