Please show us the source of your confabulations and speculations. The British tried to build a road through Bhutan to Tibet??? There already is a highway coming from Sikkim to Nathu La, then on to Lhasa. It was opened in around 2003 or 2004, if I remember well. There would have been no need to build a road through the Dokhlam territory. Take a look at a modern map to see where it is. The Chinese have ulterior and sinister intentions in constructing a highway through that wasteland and parallel to the existing highway that connects Lhasa in Tibet to Sikkim. They want to by-pass the existing frontier checkpoint and build a vantage point nearer Assam - so that they can strangle NE India through the narrow corridor that connects NE India to north India.

You should stop playing games, Bub, because adult people need to think rationally. We all understand that he who controls a valley from the mountain tops can block it. The Indians understand the Chinese intentions even though the Chinese are spraying pepper spray or fog or something to render visibility low.

There is no @"Chinese Tibetan Army" but there is an Indian Tibetan border guard composed of Tibetans. Remember: The Chinese stole the Tibetans' homeland and now it is Chinese manning Tibet's borders and trying to push them outwards.

The initial British plan to open up Tibet involved constructing a road through Bhutan that would most likely have gone through the same location as the road now being built by the Chinese at Doklam, the site of the current stand-off. This would have been the shortest route leading to the main trading centre within Tibet at Phari. Bhutan saw the extension of roads as a slippery slope that could lead to annexation by the British and was not willing to concede. Despite repeated British inducements and threats, Bhutan refused to join the club of Princely States and managed to remain independent.

In March 1888, a force of 2,000 men under the command of Brigadier-General Graham crossed into Sikkim and defeated the Tibetan army. The British press reported “a few shells from the beautiful little mountain guns settled the whole business in a few minutes”. In reality, the campaign to remove the Tibetans from Lungdar lasted nearly nine months, and at one point the Tibetans nearly managed to capture the Governor-General of Bengal.

Well, today there is a road and it gives the Bhutanese territory a wide berth. The Chinese illegal occupiers are trying to build a military-purpose road and to annex parts of Bhutan. No doubt they want to steal the whole of Bhutan, then Sikkim and finally NE India. You only need to listen to their expansionist propaganda. The Chinese ambassador to India has made it sufficiently clear in the past.

Don't talk nonsense, PLEASE...

Tibet from Bhutan, no such thing as a road.
Tracks yes...

However, China wants to build motorable road towards Sikkim-Bhutan-Tibet tri-junctio.
Bhutan is all for it, but India got a big stick-with uncle Sam's support...
UK prefers to keep a low profile 4 obvious reasons...

If you cannot understand English don't comment here!!! I did write that the existing road gives Bhutan a wide berth, i.e. Tibet and Sikkim are linked by road but not Tibet and Bhutan.

So it is extra suspicious that the Chinese are building a road in disputed areas along Bhutan's border.
