Imbedded deep inside the world's largest mountain range is a region so volatile that the smallest spark could easily induce total regional chaos. This region, known to locals as Doklam, has yet again burst onto the world stage; prompting diplomatic discourse, economic strife, and yes, military deployments.
These military deployments have slowly escalated since the dawn of this standoff last month; attracting countless military units from both China & India onto the front lines. China alone has launched a full scale military exercise in neighboring Tibet; mobilizing entire battalions to full-scale combat readiness.
While such maneuvers are to be expected, the chance for error is astronomically high.
Outside of the stage work, not much has actually happened; leaving the entire situation incredibly stale. Soldiers are tired and weary; increasing the risk for miscalculation and provocation.
I will embedded much more information down bellow; including a custom graphic of mine which dissects a recently discovered Sino-Bhutanese military outpost near the contested region. Until anything further occurs, however, I sadly have not much more to say.
Chinese military units are seen on truck beds near Doklam.
