Ever since the Dokalam crisis began this summer, strategists in India have been hostage to a virtual 'Little Wars' mindset. For a majority of the part, the military debate has centred on the prospects of a limited border war or a protracted but non-violent stand-off. Though Defence Minister Arun Jaitley has assured Indians this is not 1962; the Ministry of External Affairs has studiously realised the threats emanating from Beijing. Referring to the ongoing standoff with the Chinese People's Liberation Army at Dokalam, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Thursday told Rajya Sabha that war was not a solution and wisdom was to resolve issues diplomatically. She further said that patience was the need of the hour and India was not going to use any aggressive language in its response to the standoff at the Bhutan-India-China tri-junction. "We should be prepared for war, but war is not a solution. Even after the war, you have to sit for a dialogue. So why not look for a way out without going to war. We don't want to win our neighbours by military power but by being an economic superpower. It is a reality that China has invested $160 billion in India, while three years ago it was $140 billion," Swaraj said, responding to a statement by Opposition leaders during a short duration discussion on India's foreign policy and engagement with strategic partners.
