We cannot ignore it true but India like always only ends up making claims while the Chinese show actual proof. It is what it is.When soldiers are dispensable, civilians like you and me hardly stand a chance.
We are at least putting up some form of token resistance, border infrastructure development... I doubt we would have seen Rafales and S-400 ever under UPA rule.
Though I agree we must also indulge in such snatch&grab operations but way I see it, Govt. is preparing for one final showdown instead of allowing China to engage us at multiple places and wear us down.
Yes, pride and dignity takes a beating but look at the Chinese side when Weibo exploded with search requests after Shiv Aroors tweet on PLA casualties due to weather conditions during the first week of January. They denied it but the citizens know their Govt. is lying and here we have Govt. friendly media which usually gets the first soundbytes from ground zero make very confident claims. You can't ignore those though we have not provided any proof.
The Chinese only keep coming up with footage of the Galwan clash. Its like a loser who got laid once claiming to be the Prom King every Friday night.
One can say oh it's galwan it's doctored it's of a different incident but India has not even shown anything from galwan.
This whole final showdown is a feel good thing. After 14 meetings and 14 fuck offs I don't think we are preparing for some final showdown.
Trade tries are mostly back to normal and the govt is not interested in any further escalation with 3 back to back election years.
