India has voiced concern over China's plans to construct a railway link with Pakistan through the Tibetan plateau. A Chinese rail link to Pakistan is through Indian territory, which is illegally occupied by Pakistan & China. China is reported to be planning to build a railway & highway link to Pakistan via Gilgit-Baltistan region in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (POK), to get a strategic land access to the Persian Gulf. If China succeeds in building a land route to the Persian Gulf; it will be a strategic loss for the United States & tactical gain for China ! The US 7th Fleet, will practically be left without a 'mission', as China will be able to get all its raw materials resources at the Persian Gulf, bypassing the Indian Ocean and the Mallaca Straits. Communist China should not be allowed strategic land-access to the Indian Ocean via Pakistan OR Burma (Myanmar), at all costs !! A strong India, both in economics & military terms, is advantage++ USA. China should withdraw from occupied Tibet or face international-sanctions. Tibet should become a free country !! China is presently, occupying almost 26,000 square miles of Indian territory in Kashmir alone after having occupied Tibet in 1950. The Chinese invasion of Tibet; cannot be forgotten by the United Nations. The State of Kashmir, is an integral part of India, illegally occupied by Pakistan & China, since 1947 & 1962 respectively. Kashmir has always been ruled by a Hindustani Maharaja, until Pakistan forcefully occupied it; and under UNITED NATIONS pressure, India was forced to let it go. The entire Kashmir region all the way from Afghanistan & the Western Tibet region, adjoining Nepal; is sovereign territory of India, since ancient times. India needs to increase (atleast double), the number of Indian Army infantry mountain divisions (presently 10); so that we can go on the 'offensive', in Kashmir & perhaps someday repossess it & also be on high alert all along the entire North-East border with the Chinese Army. India has the available manpower & the Indian Army ia a bright future for the unemployed youth. Take for example the German Army (Wehrmacht)
