India is keeping track of Chinese build up in depth areas, away from the LAC, and fine-tuning its operational plans accordingly.
China is doing worse. It is picking on sizeable opponents in a direct conflict, unlike the Cold War where Ruskies confronted the Muricans indirectly but picked on pretty smaller countries in a direct conflict. And much to China's dismay, 2 major countries have a border with it- India and Japan(maritime).Do what the Soviet Union did
Yeah. I had read about the complete unpreparedness on the part of military in 1962, mostly caused by incompetent defence minister and compliant generals. Also unwillingness to fight on part of political leadership.Chinese military had a walkover, over the unprepared and hastily rushed Indian Army in 1962 near Tawang. Their main objective was Tawang, which they captured and then withdrew. The leaked portions of Henderson-Brook report on 1962 debacle blamed bad political and diplomatic management in the first part but blamed military order of battle for hastily assembled troops. The Indian generals and colonels had no idea that Chinese have assembled a force right next to the border, close to Thagla Ridge capable of climbing down and reaching Tawang. One column reached Tawang easily after beating Brigadier Dhalvi boys. Other two Chinese column waited about a month and infiltrated via BumLa and Bhutan. The troops at SeLA lead by Brigadier Hoshiar Singh were surrounded and had no choice but to retreat. Unlucky for them, their retreat route was blocked as Chinese who had reached Bomdila and captured brigade headquarters there. Then there was only few choices, Indian troops surrender or straglers reach the Foothills. About 3,000 of our boys surrendered. About the same number hoodwink the Chinese and reached the Foothills.
Can the Chinese do the same in 2021. The time of the year is same as pre-winter as in 1962. As the reports are appearing that Chinese are building military infrastructure opposite Tawang, just across the Tibet/India ridge line, hence it is possible.
Very unlikely! …. This time the Indian Army is so well prepared both for defence and offence that going for Chinese troops is unlikely. If the Chinese leave the safety of the ridge line which is called McMohan line and crossover to invade, the well prepared Indian troops would close the gate of their entry and force the invading troops to surrender. There would be no other choice. We need to accept a surrender of 3,000 Chinese troops together with their generals and colonels to wash away that humiliating defeat of 1962…….. Please Chinese do come, give us a chance to beat the hell out of you.
There cannot be a cold war. US and USSR's economy was not entangled the way US and China's is. If one goes down, the other goes down with it. Businessmen are in no mood to decouple their businesses. So forget about any cold war in short term atleast.Do what the Soviet Union did
For the small arms watchers, good old Sterling makes a presenceIndia is keeping track of Chinese build up in depth areas, away from the LAC, and fine-tuning its operational plans accordingly.theprint.in
I think we should agree to settle border disputes in China's favour.Our objectives are not so good. We only think of defending ourselves. Our objective must be clear: to wipe off CCP off the face of the earth. Once our objective gets clear, our actions will also align.
Waiting it out, we are giving the Chinese to also get prepared. More prepared = more lethal = more deaths. Had we nipped this in the bud with some kinetic activity from the initial incursion, we would be in a different place.Bad peace is still better than good war.
Having said that I hope and pray that we have used our time for adequate resource build up and training. Now GOD helps us when time comes to meet the enemy on the battlefield.
