Chinese troops in Pakistan?

via Sputnik.
Over the weekend, Indian media reported sighting Chinese troops in an area of the disputed Kashmir region administered by Pakistan along a crucial road-rail corridor. Experts say that the reports, if true, are an indication of China's intention to back its economic interests by military power, and its goal to bypass US naval power on the high seas.

On Saturday, The Times of India reported that an unspecified number of Chinese People's Liberation Army troops had been spotted at forward posts on the Pakistani side of the Line of Control (LoC) in Kashmir, with intercepts of Pakistani army communications indicating that the troops had arrived to assist in the digging of tunnels which are part of an alternative route to a major regional highway.
Chinese troops, the paper added, were first believed to be spotted in the region in 2015, in an area where a Chinese company is involved in the construction of a hydroelectric power plant.
First.  I have readers from India so what the hell man!  Why didn't you guys hit me with this????  You're getting a bad report on this one.  Don't let it happen again.

Second.  Chinese troops in Pakistan?  Are they on crack?  Why would they want to enter the quagmire that is Pakistan?  On a sidenote, all those stories about SOCOM having wild and wooly plans to grab the nukes in Pakistan if they go full bore retard are gonna need revising.  I bet they didn't take into account the presence of Chinese troops and more.
