The big chill slows Chinese activities in eastern Ladakh. Lakes starting to freeze up badly. PLA patrol boats slowly being rendered inoperable.

China Is National Security Threat No. 1
At this point in time, both pro and anti china are lobbying their views for public attention, but it looks like final decision is yet to be taken. We are not even sure if the west will stay unanimous on this issue. even if U.S chooses a anti-china path, there is no guarantee europe will follow U.S on this.

Full report here.. They stopped short of declaring officially CCP as No.1 enemy of U.S.
But then again, this intelligence director is on his way out, no guarantee the next one will have the same view about CCP as this one.

In the past US policy was set in concrete not anymore with these socialist elements that have taken over.

Only silly question is the one hasn’t been asked.

Ice breakers are heavy cumbersome and hard to deploy. The displacement will always be bigger than the intended boats PLA wants to operate for patrol or security purposes. The usage will not be all year around. The ice broke tend to freeze again and each time for daily patrol they have to use these Ice breakers like scout boats. Also they will be sitting ducks practice targets for Indian anti material munitions. The usage is only best for trade and sea transport purposes.
