Re: Neutering & Defanging Chinese Threat (15-11-2017)

Re: J&K Union Territory-2019

Taking POK is the next logical step. That is one of the reasons Pakis are indulging in huge hue and cry and the Chinese are trying to support it. We need to obviously augment our conventional strength by a lot to get ready for such an operation. Apart from that, we need hard intelligence on the nuke...
