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


What is required is not surveillance, but policy. When our troops on the ground are stopped from patrolling by the Sugars, it is not the sensors but the action that is missing.

It will all become clear the moment you understand that Xi is this generation's version of Hitler and CCP is the Nazi party.

It is one of the examples of mankind's collective madness amplified by an inhuman ideology called communism/socialism.
