It's my hunch that the recent Mumbai Electrical grid blackout was a cyber attack from Chin. Obviously there will be no official word on this but it's a conspiracy theory I'm inclined to believe in. No it was really a cable break in the Khandala Ghat. Please don't spread your conspiracy theories whe...

I agree with Aditya_V, rather then being struck in the Dharmic Rightiousness, we need to do what is right for us. If taking over GB or bifurcating Pakistan is the right thing for Indian interests the we should not hesitate to go headlong for the necessary action.

Remember that this is perfectly valid deception. Remember a balloon with the same dimensions as a launcher can cause a incorrect estimation of your strength or worst even expending of precious resources to destroy hot air balloons. Lets not laugh at it and instead learn from it.

The Chinese are venerable to interdiction along multiple axis as far as G219 is concerned. If even PLAAF is able to secure air dominance (and that is a big if) in Depsang they are able to protect only a small portion of that vast highway.

If there's one thing I've noticed the Chinese repeatedly do, it is this - they seldom use force accumulation as a way to expand their claims. In other words, they don't depend primarily on a continuous presence of highly trained and heavily armed troops. Not much is established about the capabiliti...

In case of further conflict, is taking G219 and G318 through their length a viable option to capture and hold before winter sets in? Too many benefits to count if we are successfu and not too far away that we cannot supply the troops. Short answer is "NO." $hit will fly if we straddle G219.
