Re: India Border Watch: Security and Operations

Let’s don’t lower our guards as Chinese are famous for speaking with forked tongues. They say one thing while do the opposite. We should keep an eagle’s eye on Chinese movements as well as their actions. Xi’s War cry and build up on the borders are too big to ignore.
