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

I see. Most likely India will use the latest move as a negotiation tactic. But hard to see China agreeing to status quo ante after all this drama. So china would have agreed to status quo before 'this drama'? This drama was because china did not agree for status quo. The 'drama' will only get bigge...

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

^^ Very likely setup previous to India's move ... Now that India is on the ridge at the Bump, it is very likely the Chinese have taken position on Black top. When India moved in on the ridge line, why not conquer BT too? I think the BT is undefendable, either for the chinese or Indians. While the r...

Since the chinese seem to be committed to no fire arms, at least so far, we are free to use their own tactics of hand combat to dislodge them. It's as if we are daring them to start a shooting war.

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

I wonder if similar tactics of hand combat can be used to occupy/push the chinese out of other areas. Use their tactics against them. See if they still stick to no fire arms.

Perhaps, this tactic can be used more effectively in winter when they may reduce their strength at their positions.
