This Could Be the Way to Diffuse Sino-Indian Border Tensions
August 24, 2017

There is but one way to diffuse the tension along the 4,056-kilometer Sino-Indian border. The neutrality of the current buffer states of Nepal and Bhutan must be recognized in full by Beijing and Delhi.

July 11, 2017

A month-long India-China standoff in the tangled mountains of the Himalayas threatens to snowball into conflict. The circumstances are enveloped in thick fog endemic to those remote mountains at 10000 feet above sea level – and to the complicated India-China relationship…

Conflict Danger Atop the ‘Roof of the World’
July 3, 2017

A recent series of military confrontations between Chinese troops on one side and Indian and Bhutanese troops on the other in a remote tri-border area in the Himalayas threatens to become a wider conflict unless wiser diplomatic heads prevail. With the eclipse of the United States as a major player in international relations, particularly in the Indian subcontinent, it is now up to regional players to avoid old border disputes from growing into a replay of the 1962 Sino-Indian border war.

March 2, 2014

During the Cold War, the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency concocted a scheme by which so-called «Captive Nations», so-called «satellite» nations of eastern and central Europe and countries lacking United Nations membership, such as Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania, were treated as subjugated nation-states by the West… With the ouster of the democratically-elected government of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych by forces representing neo-Nazi, World Bank, and reactionary Ukrainian nationalist forces, the Russian government is in a position to grant «Captive Nation» status to not only a Ukrainian government-in-exile (GIE) but also to any other progressive government overthrown by street mobs and neo-fascists… The world is at a crossroads. It can follow the West into austerity, bankruptcy, and subjugation as a «captive planet».

Giants Face off atop the «Roof of the World»
May 27, 2013

…U.S. Special Forces, along with those of Britain, Israel, and France, are increasingly seen at the Indian Counter Insurgency and Jungle Warfare School in Vairengte in Mizoram in eastern India. The CIA is reportedly recruiting agents from among thousands of ethnic Nepali Hindu Lhotshampa refugees originally forced from southern Bhutan to refugee camps in Nepal and subsequently resettled in the United States. These refugee agents are able to integrate themselves into the ethnic stew of the Himalayas and report intelligence to the large CIA station at the U.S. embassy in Kathmandu. And young American men with military-style haircuts have been seen with their American families on the streets of Gangtok, the Sikkimese capital, which is a short drive from the heavily-garrisoned Nathu-La pass…
