India needs to get over ‘Line Thinking’ as far as #PLA deployment is concerned. While decision makers squabble over which line is the true #LAC as per Indian version, we forget that we aren’t the only claimant in this. Chinese have and will continue to enforce their versions ..
upon us. And we can’t keep crying wolf without acting on it.
As evident from this representation by @detresfa_ , the Chinese have decided to claim and consolidate the 1960 claim line which they reached till in 1962. India has categorically denied these claims but these.. Image
deployments prove that China is simply doing what it wants to.
Since they’ve decided to take 1960 line as the new LAC ( except one position ahead near Burtse in #Depsang ), India is left with two choices to counter this expansionism.
1. Fight them and push them back
2. Agree.. Image

In an article published on Li Jian, retired Chinese lieutenant-general Wang Hongguang said India only needs 50,000 soldiers to “maintain” the LAC but it has “added 100,000 more soldiers in Ladakh” instead of withdrawing troops.
“India has doubled or tripled its troops near the Line of Actual Control; they are mostly stationed within 50km of Chinese territory, and they could easily cross into China in a few hours,” he said, saying China should be on alert for surprise attacks from the Indian Army.

What has #China gained so far?

1. Paranoid 🇮🇳 top brass/policy makers who will focus more inland ($$) than maritime i.e. CDS/Map lovers
2. Pulse check on #QUAD & #US reaction
3. Foundation stone of double squeeze #LOC~#LAC
4. Strengthening of newly raised #PLA Western Theatre.
China’s mission is to break both island chains by 2030-35 by massive build up of Naval & Air powers. Already artificial islands are there & no one can do anything other than odd USN vessels with flag conducting freedom of navigation. None of US allies want war nor have stomach Image
All countries in Pacific rely on same geography that they want to turn against China. Its kind of self defeating to cage a dragon while you’re in it. I’m not even bringing economical angle to this and what will happen to beast of capitalism, #Covid has set the tone for 2020s :)

Winter arrives in #Ladakh, stretchers pile up at standoff zone

In the last 4 days, #Indian positions have witnessed a daily stream of #Chinese combat medics evacuate small numbers of #PLA troops from high altitude posts in the Fingers area on stretchers
indiatoday.in/india/story/wi…
While the standoff along the LAC in eastern Ladakh is not showing signs of simmering down, the unforgiving winter weather has started to take its toll on the troops.

These conditions will get significantly worse with each passing day.
In the Pangong sector, where the situation has been particularly tense since August 29, the edges of the Pangong lake have begun to freeze this week. Temperatures at the heights held by Indian and Chinese troops at Finger 4, for instance, dip to minus 4 degrees.

India has been trying since 1993, in endless border talks, to get China to agree to jointly demarcate the actual ground positions,on agreed maps. India proposed it be done in three segments, starting with the less controversial central. China has refused to do consider it.
2/China's ambassador to India recently stated, that (China doesn't want to do this bcs) it would make things More Difficult, meaning that defining the grey areas btwn diff perceptions of LAC would make border more difficult to solve(ie Creeping acquisition ruled out thereafter)
3/ The outlines of a border settlement are in the India-China agreement of 2005. In 2006 #China suddenly started backtracking from it and has got more and more aggressive since. #India is willing to settle the border on the basis of principles outlined in the 2005 agreement.

Pangong Fingers hot up: Scramble for heights as #PLA men mass on ridge, #India sends more troops

The #Chinese massed close to 2,000 soldiers on the upper reaches of the ridge Tuesday night. India also moved to mirror the deployment
indianexpress.com/article/india/…
Indian troops are being deployed in large numbers along the Finger 3 ridgeline on the north bank of Pangong Tso in Ladakh where the PLA build-up has increased significantly in the last 48 hours as the Chinese seek to move further west of Finger 4.
The Chinese moves on the north bank is seen as an attempt to wrest the advantage after Indian troops occupied dominating heights on the stretch from the south bank of the lake to Rechin La near Rezang La on August 29-30.

#India tells #China to back off, sets up obstacles at LAC warning #PLA not to cross over

In a bid to stop China from transgressing the LAC, the #IndianArmy has set up obstacles including barbed wires at the heights under its control in the #Ladakh region.
indiatoday.in/india/story/in…
“This has been done to discourage them from coming close to areas we are occupying. It’s a temporary obstacle to convey our intent to the aggressive manoeuvres by the Chinese,” said an official.

“The message is loud and clear, don’t come into our area,” the official added.
In the Brigade Commander-level meets taking place almost every day since the action of August 29 when Indian Army held on to some strategic heights in the south bank of Pangong Lake, China has been aggressive, stressing that the Indian army must vacate the positions.

#PLA fighter jets ‘approached #Taiwan’s southwest’ after Taiwan test-fired missiles

It followed weapons tests off It's southern, eastern, NE coast
scmp.com/news/china/mil…
Multiple Su-30 and J-10 fighter jets briefly entered Taiwan’s southwest air defence identification zone (ADIZ) before they were chased off by Taiwanese warplanes, the island’s defence ministry said in a statement.
“What the Chinese communists did not only unilaterally, but also seriously, violated peace and stability in the region. For this we gravely condemn their acts,” the ministry said.

#IndiaChinaFaceOff: #India now holds some solid bargaining chips

Changes on the ground, where Indian troops have surprised the #PLA, have subtly altered the dynamics ahead of the meeting of foreign minister S Jaishankar & Wang Yi in #Moscow
timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/lac-stan…
Sources pointed to the unusual speed with which the Chinese issued a statement past 3am Beijing time accusing India of a “serious violation”. The statement followed a resolute Indian response to a Chinese advance which made it plain that the occupation of the heights was to stay.
The signal to China was that either use of force would be needed to evict the Indian troops or negotiations were an option to find a way out and de-escalate tensions. For the moment, it has sharpened the need for a political understanding on the growing boundary crisis.

#LAC for dummies: The "LAC" referred to in an Indian statement is (>50 yr) Indian perception of the LAC. Our perception is based on ground reality as seen for 1/2 century by Indian border forces (it doesn't change with every leadership change, as it does in #CCPchina)

#XiJinping Plans “Another Brutal Purge” in the Military After Failures on #Indian Border

Xi is displeased with the #PLA performance against India on the border, eager to consolidate more military power under him & nervous about political unrest at home.
primepatriot.com/2020/09/04/xi-… Image
Xi has taken a hands-on management approach to the Chinese military before, notably in 2016 when he conducted a major reorganization that centralized military power and made a large percentage of top officers personally loyal to him.
An even bigger reorganization & purge could be in the works, driven partly by Xi’s desire to tighten his grip over the military — and militarize more of China’s police forces — before a prospective confrontation with the United States or another Tiananmen Square-style uprising.

Interesting hand-expressions by @DefenceMinIndia @rajnathsingh during his talks with his #China defense-minister in #Russia ... He took his mask-off while talking so his counterpart can understand clearly what he's saying!

Hope RNS told China to vacate #AksaiChin as its TIME☺️ Image
Never any @DefenceMinIndia ever used such pointed-fingers in their discussion with defense-minister of other countries.

I hope @rajnathsingh ne khoob sunaya hoga, #China counterpart ko ..
#TakeBackAksaiChin Image
So @rajnathsingh used his hand-expressions for 140 mins😊

Now let's see if #China @MFA_China understood any of the hard-talk, or will keep sending #PLA to keep poking #IndianArmy at #LAC?
