Re: India's Border Security with China and Pakistan-2020 - Part 2

Ajit Doval's talk at Rishikesh. All his speeches are killers. Sorry, my skills are not adequate for translation.
Hopefully right place for this, wrt to China. The warning has been delivered, no limp noodle talk.

I also liked what Swamiji said. Listen carefully.

I listened from 31:30 onwards..I find Jaishankar weak. He has no opinion on why China did what they did. He is still clinging to peace agreements with China. Living in the past. Those agreements are in tatters, when will leadership realize that and move on.

Re: India's Border Security with China and Pakistan-2020 - Part 2

There is so much focus on winter preparations. This makes me suspicious. What if the real plan is not to tough it out through the winter? Interesting. It could be a feint to make India amass troops and then start raining munition on the massed troops. Sir troops are amassed by both sides, and both ...

Yes we now have an edge in the Chushul sector, we command the heights. But if we are forced to occupy the heights indefinitely, thats an almost unbearable extra cost imposed on the IA, while the Chinese sit in their warm tents. I am not sure if we should be celebrating the extra cost imposed on us. ...

"To fight and shed blood is not so good. To make money and things is better.

So faced with such an enemy do you:

1) engage him in a race to build infrastructure which he loves to do

or

2) make him fight and shed blood which he loathes to do?"
