More on the Doklam crisis. The stand-off between China and India.
Tensions unabated. Threats made. Nuclear powers at loggerheads as they say.

1. "Doklam: China mulls small-scale military ops to purge Indians in 2 weeks"
"The expert believed Indian foreign ministry would be informed beforehand"
"China is planning a "small scale military operation" to "expel" Indian troops from the Doklam area "within two weeks", an article in a state-run daily here said on Saturday."
2. "Doklam: Our army will 'annihilate' Indian troops, Chinese media warns Modi"
"'Modi mustn't pull India into reckless conflict'"
3. "Remember 1962 defeat: Chinese media warns India again amid Sikkim standoff"
"China has accused Indian troops of transgressing into its territory; stand-off started on June 16"
And who is going to back down first or can anyone arrive at an amicable agreement to settle differences?
Small-scale operation escalates into a large-scale operation and perhaps even beyond with the consequences potentially most terrible.
Some damn fool thing in the Himalaya! Doklam too might become another geography lesson for the American public? I hope not.
