    1962 China war can’t be repeated: Indian Army chief

    Indian Army chief General Bikram Singh asserted Wednesday that 1962 war with China cannot be repeated and assured that no enemy soldiers could ever set foot on Indian territory.

    At an interaction with reporters here, Gen. Singh said India had adequate military plans for its borders to counter any misadventure by any force inimical to the nation.

    “Nahi hoga (It will not happen),” the army chief said when asked if a repeat of the 1962 war could happen.

    “I am assuring the nation as chief of army staff that 1962 will not be repeated,” Gen. Singh said when he was reminded that 2012 is the 50th year of the only war that India had had lost since independence in 1947.

    He noted that as the army chief, his mandate was “to safeguard the territorial integrity of the country”.

    “That’s the assurance I am giving. We will not let any enemy enter our territory. Plans are afoot on all borders,” he said.

    If indeed it is true than an independent committee should be set up to review the preparedness of all three wings of the armed forces to get to the bottom of things.

    I thought China still occupied about 25,000 sq miles of india teritory,,,,another thing while I dislike the idea of any american troops dieing ever we have occupied Afganstan with the lost about 2000 americans in ten years or about 200 americans a year. to occupy a country of 30 million backward muslims that dont seem like a lot. India has to be prepared to fight a war of do what ever China wants.....thats the way the world works.

    That's a problem. You see, an army devoid of spirituality is as good as rubbish. I'm sure a defence professional will testify to that.

    What I mean is, the Army doesn't need to exhibit it's "secular credentials".

    This phenomenon is restricted to politicians

    Oh!

    Army needs spiritual textures or bullets to fight?

    Please do explain on what you meant.

    Defense professionals are not idiots, I hope you know that.

    ..And thus spake Oracle, the defender of the spiritually bereft.
    I reiterate, let an Armyman respond, hold your horses till then.
    Btw, i think they call those books "scriptures" not textures.

    Indian Army (or Armed Forces ?) consist of about 3% Muslims where as Muslims are 14-15% of Indian Population but the same figure is proportionately very high for Sikhs. So does this mean Indian Army is not secular? Reservation in Indian Army, anyone ?

    I know what the Armyman would respond too.

    And I very well know your intentions in this forum.

    What do you mean?

    What a load of rubbish. You are asking him what he meant and lecturing me that KB answered exactly as the answer should have been given. Hats off to your hypocrisy.
