Chinese have made it very difficult for us. They are treacherous - they just did not ingress - but they also built up and entire attack force behind it. So now "pushing back" is no longer a post-by-post affair - we cannot send a small raiding party and expect them to capture posts and surv...

It will be a perrenial threat to DSDBO and would divert considerable resources to protect Chinese breakout even when our focus is to th...
