#mustread thread for anyone who wishes to understand #defence in depth & how #Finland is far more militarised & prepared as a society for war than even the #USA .
Much here that #India can imbibe especially in the #himalayas .
Much to learn here .
Imho this is what #India should pick up & implement .

#CHINA DIGGING IN FOR LONG HAUL IN #LADAKH

The Chinese have been rapidly building defence infrastructure along the Line of Actual Control indicating that they are preparing for a long period of tension with India, points out Jayadeva Ranade
Since last summer's visit to Tibet by Xi Jinping -- the first by him as president -- the Chinese authorities have been rapidly building defence infrastructure along the Line of Actual Control indicating that they are preparing for a long period of tension with India.
Construction of all the planned 624 'Xiaokang' model well-off border defence villages, which had been accelerated, was announced to have been completed on January 7, 2022.

A new satellite image shows that #China's building a bridge on its side of the Pangong lake in eastern Ladakh
The Chinese move comes amid the prolonged Sino-India military standoff in the border area

#IndiaNarrative

@kakar_harsha @asthana_shashi @MeghBulletin
Reports say that the satellite imagery is of an area on the Chinese side of the Line of Actual Control (LAC) near the Galwan valley region
The armies of India & China had created a buffer zone in Galwan valley following their deadly clashes on June 15, 2020

#IndiaNarrative
Marking #NewYear Indian & Chinese troops exchanged sweets & greetings at 10 border posts along LAC including in eastern #Ladakh
As per reports, the bridge is at a distance of around 40 km from LAC & India is also developing infrastructure in response in the region at a rapid pace

Dragon huggers in India...
Listen to @AmbVPrakash on the challenge posed by peddlers of Chinese agenda in #India.
Indian democracy used against India as #China uses PsyOps.
Should Govt respond? Nip it in the bud?
From
#Doklam to #Galwan India must counter Chinese mind games asap.
Important to beware!!!

China uses local laws, pressure groups (brainwashed &/or paid?), 'democratic institutions' to its advantage.
China failed in #Doklam. China has not succeeded in eastern #Ladakh to brow beat us.

INDIA 🇮🇳 MUST STAND UNITED TO DEFEAT CHINA's 🇨🇳 EVIL AGENDA.
India 🇮🇳 did QPQ Operations dominating China's Moldo garrison forcing China to withdraw from certain friction points. There are other aces up India's sleeve forcing China to build rapidly & construct a bridge on PangongTso (Aksai Chin is Indian territory too) #India should object

In a remote #village of Kungyam in #Ladakh, people revived livestock herding recently. #EncounterUncia
@Dorjayncf and I got a call from the herders of the village to predator-proof their newly built corral. #EncounterUncia
On a chilly November morning, when we reached the village, we were shocked! A #snowleopard had entered the corral that very night. #EncounterUncia

We are heading back to bipolar/multipolar world, is it good/bad 4 int community only time will tell. Wht we r certainly seeing is more aggression on part of nations, specially 1 thats tryin 2 go into bipolar world or makin presence felt thts #China

We need to also start looking at transformation for the betterment and ensuring the national security architecture that we want to evolve is capable of handling the threats that are emerging. To do this we need jointmanship amongst all the security forces: Gen Rawat at @iicdelhi

-Who gives away strategic territory❓
-No I’m not talking about POK
-It’s Katchatheevu
-A strategic Island in Palk Bay
-Island was owned by Raja of Ramanathapuram & later part of Madras Presidency
-In ‘74 it was ceded to #SriLanka by #Indian PM Indira Gandhi
#IndianNavy @Swamy39
-The agreement with #SriLanka was haphazard
-Didn’t specify fishing rights
-#Indian fishermen did fishing around Katchatheevu & used Island for services
-In ‘76 EEZ’s were established & fishermen were restricted
-But more than fishing it has many other implications India TV News

1/3 News of DEADLIEST #Rafale coming to India in Jan 2022 is followed by news of #PK expanding it’s NUCLEAR arsenal with more warheads. Apparently right now they hv abt 165 warheads. They also use “tac nukes”. So how is INDIA planning to make RAFALE deadlier?
2/3 India specific enhancements incld radar enhancements, Israeli helmet-mounted displays, low-band jammers to towed decoy sys, engine capability for "cold start" frm high-altitudes like #Ladakh. Our video with @mjavinod sir on Rafales.
3/3 Once India gets 36th Rafale in Jan, all the Rafales will undergo “software certification”, ostensibly. And what are “tac nukes”? These r tactical nukes, in simple words smaller versions of actual nukes, which one of the PK minister hd described as nukes weighing in grams. 😄

@TwitterIndia does not have a local resident grievance officer as required by law in #India
An address in San Francisco and a US email address is 'local' for @jack but not for Government of India where sovereign laws and not Jack Company rules apply.
Meanwhile, after apologising and correcting distorted map of India previously @Twitter cocks a snook again. It shows #Ladakh as part of #China ; #JammuAndKashmir as separate country.
This is no mistake. This is deliberate distortion by @jack Company to dare Government of #India
Actually, @Twitter is a habitual and serial offender. It continues to compound its offences while hiding behind bumkum on #FreeSpeech
No worries, @TwitterIndia can run but it cannot hide.

#China remains hostile to India.
#Maharashtra power outage blamed on Chinese hackers.
China yet to pull back from #Depsang.
Yet Rs 300 cr Telecom contract to #Huawei? ImageImage
Is this the 'whole of India' approach being adopted to deal with expansionist forces?
Why continue to give access to China in critical areas like Telecom?
Even if central Govt is to be believed China didn't succeed in #Maharashtra power outage, attempts were made? Even in Delhi
Soldiers make the supreme sacrifice for a strong nation.
Can business & industry not sacrifice profits for a strong nation?
Is this the whole of nation approach to deal with China?
Is this #Atmanirbhar #Bharat?
Profits more important than national interest?
