yeah right but Gurkhas didn't see combat in falklands sir . It was mainly thr royal marines, SAS and the Paras
Gurkhas have special division in British army .It is very unlikely that Brits have not deployed them in Falkland. Even today Brits hire Gurkhas as army personal as they are believed to be ruthless killing machines

The 7th Gurkha rifles was a part of the task force but they were never deployed in actual combat . They were kept in reserve , some of their members got injured in a argentine air force bombing raid but they didn't get to chop argentine heads .
Really? I have read a few British sources saying that the Gurkhas were deadly against the Argentinians. They could have been there in small numbers. Or maybe they could have been Gurkha soldiers of British citizenship because some even got commended for their performance.

Here , read this extract from a cnn article
Despite the fact that the 7th Duke of Edinburgh's Own Gurkha Rifles Regiment were a part of the British task force sent to repel an Argentine invasion of the Falkland Islands -- known as the Malvinas by Argentina, who also claim them -- their role has been largely absent from media accounts of the conflict.
Bloody conflict
This is probably because they never got to fire a shot against their enemy -- though they felt the brunt of Argentine bombs throughout the 74-day conflict, with many of their number injured by flying shrapnel.

Thanks for the clarification. It could have been just some glorified reports. In any case, the British won hands down. My point is that the US-China conflict will be fought more between their bankers than with soldiers. Chinese control a major portion of the US economy and if China gets screwed, the US will also suffer badly.

Even Taiwanese companies has huge investments in China. They will too suffer.

Don't you think that pakistanis can't provide good security to Chinese ?
If these were gora saheb , the pakis would have left no stone unturned to provide the best security they could.
Gora sahebs come in few numbers. Chinese bring everyone from construction worker to supervisor to engineer- it's not possible to provide security to so many people. Given the presence of BLA and TTP in Baluchistan, Pakis still do a very commendable job in securing these Chingus otherwise they would've been culled on a daily basis.

They have the biggest submarine force in Asia after Bat shit eaters . Plus their DDGs are not so light armed stuff like other Asian navies including IN . And and they can also go noooke in less than 3 months if they realise bat shit eaters will threaten their existence . Off course it would need some great amount of balls in japanese political leadership to go full banzai in 2021 . But never underestimate the deep underlying hatred for bat shitters in Nippon

Japan has a really good navy , probably the second best in entire asia . They have gained experience in ASW operations throughout the cold war

If that was the case, why not call cheeni as liars and aggressors with appropriate warnings sprinkled in.
Well the EAM did say that. It can't be more clear than that.
foreign minister said that India's neighbour broke all the agreements and accords which governed the ties between the two countries till now.
Or may be its our mango man opinion that Armed forces actions and MEA's statements are meek when they actually are fairly strong?
