I really like Dr Jaishankar, EAM. He is very efficient and intelligent guy. My only request to him that do not rule out military alliances. When we rule out military alliances, we become weaker in enemy's eyes.

It is a fact that India may not benefit much from military alliances materially. But it has a psychological aspect which is equally compelling, and may have big effect on the enemy's risk taking ability.

Yes he will.. He'll get top care since he has other health issues as well. Sums up the Covid situation in India is pretty bad & some people were questioning China's timing. It was spot on.
This is why Trump took HCQ as a preventive. While the world laughs at Trump, he is yet to contract the disease.
But we have to take seriously that China may use bio warfare further and our soldiers may get impacted too. Due to this reason alone, India needs a lot of smart weapons which helps to avoid close combat.

Wait are we going to sword fight ? that we use same SRBM like CCP thugs use ? just because they have SRBM which can hit out population centre's doesn't mean we will have to retaliate with same calibre of SRBM we can very well send A2 or A3 . Why we have to send Prithvi

First people here should calm down CCP thugs are not even going to bomb beyond the LAC region if any action takes place it would be mostly a skirmishes not a full blown war . sending SRBM to attack Jammu , Srinagar or even Delhi means its all out war and CCP thugs won't have any justification for those attacks to international community .

CCP thugs have sent troops into LAC very well knowing that any action if it takes place will be in and around Aksai chin region and won't get expanded beyond it and what is there is Aksai chin region for china to loose nothing economically so they would be comfortable using all warfare inside this region , Escalating beyond that region will be solely on our hands .

If they attack Tawang then its different game all together

We may not have these SRBMs equal to China.. But few Prithvi missiles launched from Assam or even Arunachal can strike deep into Chinese Yunan & Sichuan provinces. We can cause panic among Chinese public as well provided we plan accordingly.

He will recover in two weeks max.
Covid19 is curable if detected early. Confirmed by experienced doctor.
Body cures itself on its own antibodies are produced against the antigen (COVID-19) the only thing required is anti inflammatory drugs and ventilators to assist ventilation as this virus attacks lungs

If talks have no future,our response should be similar.Activate the whole LAC,even previously 'settled' areas.Send in indian troops at several points into chinese side in proportion to chinese incursion at ladakh and set up tents and posts.Then as long as chinese dont vacate no man's land in ladakh we will also not vacate.Chinese are welcome to fire first and start a war.

What's special about 2024? Indian elections. If immediate action is about to happen then Chinese would like it to be near US elections. Chinese war preparations have started in 2017 itself after Doklam. They were angry & vying for revenge. For now I believe current leadership is hoping that Chinese may withdraw from all pressure points this winter.
About the Aroor article he clearly mentioned Chinese are in more numbers in Depsang than ever before & stopping Indian patrols. If hostilities break out they'll definately like to make a dash to DBO on short notice or a two pronged attack via Karakoram pass. Modi cares about 2024 but Xi Jinping doesn't give two hoots about it.
Oh. Dear God. being in large numbers in their side of LAC or on LAC and being inside our area are two vastly different things.

Threatening. yes they are and they would threaten equally if they were five km away as any troops stride the road axis leading to Depsand can only be applied to the DBO sector.

crossing LAC is an action. Being on their side is capability and intention.

NDTV has published a few images from Maxer of areas between finger five and six. The images show Chinese camp. I can not call it deployment.

Looking closely at pictures the camps are either on the edges of the lake on tucked into Nullahs / valleys where asuitable place for pitching tents have been found and the ares is motorable.

These are in no way tactical deployments. Those are at best administration areas and any India Army General joking would call it "Muglai"... (a Mogul Camp). That is reflective of Chinese confidence that the camps would not come under artillery barrages or air strikes...
Arcetic or normal types of tents are OK for the prevailling season but dweeling in them under very heavy snow upto twelve feet in winters may not be feasible for 50000 troops.. My guess - this campaign with this scale is not going to go into winters.. Chinese would launch an offensive before that or they would disengange hapily after obtaining some concessions from India.

Overall strength seems to be more than a battalion...
