#IndiaChinaFaceOff : Ladakh standoff exposed #PLA's weaknesses, made #China rejig security narrative

The Galwan incident was the first taste of combat—though without firearms—that it had with an actual enemy after getting a bloody nose in #Vietnam in 1979…
2/ “The PLA has been facing a challenge of absence of combat experience and a lack of realistic training. It has been widely accepted even within the Chinese establishment,” said Lieutenant General (retd) D.S. Hooda, former northern Army commander.
3/ Battlefield blood is nothing new for the Indian Army. It has been bleeding in combat every day for the past 3 decades in counter-insurgency operations in Kashmir & had also fought a limited conventional war in Kargil, complete with the use of airpower, two decades ago.

As India & #China resumed talks on Jan 24 to address the nine month-long standoff along LAC in eastern #Ladakh, a village head from one of the border villages claimed that Chinese vehicles were using Indian roads to enter Indian territory
@vijaita reports
@vijaita Mr. Urgain, who shot the video, told The Hindu that when the nomads went for winter grazing this year, Chinese people asked them to vacate the area.

@vijaita “The area where the Chinese are trying to assert themselves is close to patrolling point 38. Our nomads havn't been there for winter grazing for the past two years due to some illness in the livestock," says Urgain Tsewang, village head of Koyul

#IndiaChinaFaceOff If, taking your stand on egotism, you think, “I will not fight”, vain is the resolve of yours; nature will drive you to act.'Bhagavad Gita. Chapter 18, Verse. In its purest form, the ‘distribution of power’ is single most important determinant of war and peace
#IndiaChinaFaceOff @MohanVaibhav Therefore, the art of war is of vital importance to the State. At the same time the use of power, and possibly the use of force, is inseparable from the bene esse of politics, inseparable from politics’. Balakot, Surgicl strike are examples.
#IndiaChinaFaceOff Power acts for politics and it is inseparable from the human pursuit of the national and international common good by political means. You never have good politics without the use of power, possibly armed forces. @narendramodi has employed armed forces

Time to be highly Alert :
If Chinese Army came with Spears and sticks, it's not because it doesn't have rifles, it's because it wanted to. This is the same Army which has one the most sophisticated arsenal in the world. Yesterday stunt, IMO:
1. Guage India's defences, locations..
..reaction time etc. Most importantly, how far they let the enemy come before they take action. Getting IA to fire, was a great achievement on part of Chinese.
2. PR exercise. Since yesterday Chinese media is busy propagating how it was just patrolling the area and Indian ...
..forces fired upon them. The image is soldiers without rifles helps their case.
3. Reaction from county. China very minutely judges Indian media and public’s response to any action. It’s media immediately catches on to things it can exploit to start anti gov propaganda ...

Since Dragon warriors or whatever are posing with some blades on a stick, I thought I would share some Indian boys with knives. These boys know how to go chop-chop with it. When it flashes, heads roll. Literally. Let's begin with Glorious Gurkhas #IndianBlades #IndiaChinaFaceOff
And this Dao is from our 'Rhinos' boys of Assam Regiment. Comes in handy when patrolling in jungles or high altitudes. Cuts through the bushes or bushy-tailed princes really well. #RezangLa #IndiaChinaFaceOff #IndianBlades
Next in line are our Sikh boy. Best avoided when they charge with their 'Kirpans' with the name of Wahe Guru on their lips and breathing fire. I am sure you would recognize them, they spent quite some time in the Dragon country. #RezangLa #IndiaChinaFaceOff #IndianBlades #Galwan

So govt supported think tank, gave platform to @China_Amb_India to lambast us. Tell us on r face that our slogan of non violence is pretense. That our brave soldiers died in #GalwanValley not only because they were aggressors but also they couldn't match the PLA. Not only
Retd Indian diplomats & journalists sat there listening to heaps upon heaps of allegations, none mustered courage to ask d Chini envoy which #LAC he was referring to. Mutually agreed 1993 or unilateral 1959? If its 1993, then is @MEAIndia lying abt no violations?
And the brave ambassador also told us with statistics on his fingertips, why any kind of economic war will hurt India more. All the while insisting that Chinese want to build trust and they are never aggressors #IndiaChinaFaceOff

(1/n)This is the story of Leh airfield and Sonam Norbu, the first engineer from @MPLadakh who built it in 1948. The very runway, now the lifeline for India during the #IndiaChinaFaceOff . @vayusena @zone5aviation
(2/n) By Dec 1947, Pakistan aided tribals had advanced up the Shyok and Indus Valleys, the objective being Leh and ultimately the entire Ladakh. Leh at that time was garrisoned by a platoon of 33 men of the State Forces.
(3/n) With no other means available to reinforce the garrison, a company of 2 Dogra set out from Srinagar on 16 Feb 1948, across the Zojila on foot crossing it in winters perhaps for the first time. They were accompanied by Sonam Norbu, the first engineer from Ladakh.

India has a military edge due to many reasons including geography as I showed your boss @HuXijin_GT via my tweet thread a few days ago. Our leaders know it, so do yours which is why they are calling for disengagement

Recent mobilisation facts : You moved 4 Mech Division...

against us last week. This is in addition to 6 Mech Division that you started the fracas with. How did you start ? You expanded the scope of your summer exercises in Tibet and used 3/4 times the forces that you usually exercise with. Then under cover of exercise your 6 Mech

broke off and made a mad dash to Ladakh. Its constituent brigades (all arm brigades) went to 3 different areas including Samzungling opposite #GalwanValley Galwan. You thought you would catch us by surprise and roll down the valley. But you were stopped #galwanvalleyclash

Is it possible to "dramatize" even a #War against any #Country to stop their businessmen from having any access to #Indian #5G #Market?!

Is this entire #Drama of #War against #China & #AtamNirbharBharat is to keep #Huawei #5G out of India till #MukeshAmbani captures the Market?
Is , in the guise of #AtamNirbharBharat, the King of #CronyCapitalism in #India, conspiring to centralize whole Indian Money & Market in the Hands of his favourite State Players?

Is #AtamNirbharBharat ONLY against one country, or against all other Foreign Investors as well?

Is China's PLA really this super force of the world or just a paper dragon .
Chinese media and lutyens media have been eulogizing PLA.
Many myths will be shattered now .

Pla is a non combative and a decorative force .

A conflict with India may end up embarrassing the Dragon.

China has indeed blinked .

TREAD : Who will emerge as a winner in this INDO-CHINA fight-Comparison with 1962 war

The current ongoing border crisis with China is getting worsen day by day. India has already started tightening its seat belt to tackle the dragon in best way. The first Indo Chinese war 1/9 Image
took place in 1962 between 20th October and 21st November. India lost this war to china. You might have a question in mind today that what will happen if India china border tension escalates. We are comparing the planetary conditions of 1962 war and current time which show 2/9
stark differences.

The ascendant lord Venus was in the sign of Scorpio initially but it retrograded back to libra in 6th house. This shows the inherent weaknesses in our countries approach at that time to tackle China. Sun who is the karaka for governments and leadership is 3/9

Friends, thank you all for the overwhelming response to my heartfelt tweet posted on the current #IndiaChinaFaceOff.
Interestingly, many trolls & all those who did not concur with my views are citing groundless, unproven, trashy & false news reports of the time when I was DG-Assam Rifles. It is irresponsible to quote those reports without knowing the entire episode.
I was @ d center of trying 2 clean up a system of its corrupt malpractices. Select contractors were being favored based on forged bank-guarantees.Few people’s monetary interests were getting hurt. My uprightness & honesty became an obstacle 4 them 2 continue d corrupt practices

So with the justifiably growing demands for moving on to Indian apps, amongst those being touted as Indian alternatives is the Hike Messenger.
Understandably, their creators are Indian.
But their wikipedia page gave a V.E.R.Y interesting piece of info about their 'Indianness'.
Apparently, on 16 Aug 2016, just one day after the 69th anniversary of Indian independence, Hike got a 175 Million Dollar investment from a Tencent Group led grouping!…
Now who is Tencent, I asked.
Once again Wikipedia came to the rescue!
Tencent is a fcuking CHINESE company based out of Shenzen!
Yup. A Chinese company owns a substantial stake in an 'Indian' App!

-Images by @Reuters spot debris in the area on 16.06.2020

-#India said #China set up a temp structure that led to the clash, media said the #IndianArmy Col burnt it down

Composite image below Image
Adding this comparison between the 9-16 of June as well that shows the camp did indeed leave some time between may & june but debris arrived instead at the same spot --- via @Reuters Image
Lastly a camp there treated as a forward outpost makes a lot of sense since its "line of sight" would allow either side to watch the other's activities in the area, the only issue is this patch of land lies in #India as per the #China claim line Image
