India is much more capable of defending against China ..with out resorting to nuclear sabre rattling ..than Pakistan capable of defending it self again India..and has to resort to nuclear brinkmanship at every turn.
Galwan was only few months ago so we know who stand where. India liberated Bangladesh and made it new country. But couldn't liberate lands occupied by Pakistan and claimed by India. :rofl: No nuclear weapons in 1965 and 1971.

SOUTH CHINA SEA tensions could be set to erupt after India sent a warship to the region to combat Beijing's aggressions in the waters.
The arrival of the warship in the waters comes at a time when relations between India and China have risen to unprecedented levels after 20 Indian soldiers were killed in skirmishes between the two in June. While no official announcement was made over the ship, analysts have claimed it represents India’s intention to take a greater stand against Beijing. Director of the Indian think-tank, the Takshashila Institution, Nitin Pai stated India was issuing a clear message to China.

Following the clash on the Himalayan border in June, he also claimed the government would now look to broaden its horizons towards the South China Sea in an attempt to contain Beijing’s navy.

He told the Financial Times: “The message was: Don’t mess in my backyard or otherwise I’ll mess in yours.

“The security of the Himalayas lies east of the Malaccas.
If you can’t solve the problem in the theatre you have, you have to enlarge the theatre.”


The Malaccas refers to the passage of water between Indonesia and Malaysia and acts as a crucial waterway between the South China Sea and the Indian Ocean.

In response, Liu Zongyi, a South Asia specialist at the Shanghai Institutes for International Studies, claimed confrontation was now more possible than ever.

Writing in the state-run Global Times, which acts as a mouthpiece for the Communist Party, he said: “This is an obvious step to create a mini version of Nato in India.

“The formation of the military alliance in the Indian Ocean will inevitably stimulate other countries to take countermeasures.

“Chances for military confrontations will intensify.”

The ship also signals India’s intent to form greater ties with the US, who is also a part of the Quad alliance along with Japan and Australia.

The alliance was reinvigorated this month as India invited Australia to join the naval drills in the Indian Ocean.

The participation of all four was the first time they participated in drills in the Indian Ocean since 2007.

Upon announcing the country’s participation, Australian Defence Minister, Linda Reynolds labelled it as a milestone activity.

She added: “High-end military exercises like Malabar are key to enhancing Australia's maritime capabilities, building interoperability with our close partners, and demonstrating our collective resolve to support an open and prosperous Indo-Pacific.”

The US and India also signed a landmark defence treaty this week following the arrival of Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo and Defence Secretary, Mark Esper.

The treaty will give India access to crucial satellite imagery needed to map out certain areas of its territory.

Named the Basic Exchange and Cooperation Agreement on Geospatial Cooperation, the treaty will give India advanced navigational aids and aircraft supplied to the state from the US.

Commenting on the South China Sea situation, Mr Pai added: “It makes sense for India to be part of a multinational coalition countering China in the South China Sea.
What will happen if China sink the Indian ship in South China Sea?

Let it enter inside the Chinese claimed zone, then KABOOM!!!!!

Well what about Galwan ? You only know Indian casualties ..but have no idea about Chinese casualties.

So what is there to brag about Galwan?

After 1948 war..India has never tried liberating Kashmir in the first place..so far..look at all wars and their objectives.

1965 war the objective was to defend Kashmir from Pakistan attack.

1971 war was all about liberation of East Pakistan..India had no offensive plans in the west.

Kargil war was fought again to defend Kashmir from Pakistani invasion.

However.. without even having any major offensive designs in Kashmir..Indian portion of Kashmir has only increased in size ..from kargil in 1971 to Siachen in 1984.

There was but one war fought with a sole objective of liberating Kashmir that was 1948 war..in that Indian captured 3/5 th of Kashmir and Pakistan could only retain 2 / 5th.( After initially capturing a lot more.

Indian military planners have decided to give top priority to Eastern Naval Command and island territories of Andaman and Nicobar Islands, and Lakshadweep to counter any threat from Chinese PLA Navy
1604143787701.png



With the onset of first snow and sub-zero temperatures in East Ladakh, the Indian Army troopers, equipped with US-made blizzard masks, have settled down for the winter against the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), with the focus of national security planners now shifting to beefing maritime security.


While the four-nation QUAD multilateral exercises under Malabar begin next Tuesday, the Indian military planners have decided to give top priority to Eastern Naval Command and island territories of Andaman and Nicobar Islands, and Lakshadweep to counter any threat from PLA Navy in Indian Ocean. The Western Naval Command has also been asked to spread out its assets with Karwar base in Karnataka as focus.

The plan follows a security assessment that pitched concern around China’s PLA Navy way over the maritime threat from the Pakistan Navy.


In this context, the national security planners are considering raising another amphibious brigade, one for eastern and western seaboard, for offensive operations in the future. As of now, India has one dedicated amphibious brigade, whose elements are spread between Thiruvananthapuram and Andaman and Nicobar Islands Command in Port Blair. The amphibious forces are specialised in launching a counter-offensive from sea using landing ship tank (LST) vessels such as INS Jalashwa and projecting power in the region and beyond. The planners are considering having one full brigade in Thiruvananthapuram, and the second stationed either at Visakhapatnam or AN Islands.

India’s island territories are at the heart of Indian Navy’s operational plan in the Indian Ocean as they dominate the major shipping lanes from Suez Canal and Persian Gulf to South-East and North Asia via Malacca Strait. The Indian Air Force fighter jets, armed with Brahmos missiles, can strike at any moving target in and around Malacca, Sunda or Lombard straits in the worst-case scenario. These three straits are the only way to access the South China Sea from Indian Ocean. Shipping costs mount manifolds if the ships have to be diverted from the Malacca Strait to other two straits.


Despite the strategic leverage that the island territories represent, the Indian Navy is still largely focused on Mumbai and Visakhapatnam with the AN Command left to the tri-services headquarters. With the military theatre commands in the offing, both AN Islands and Lakshadweep are going to be the hub of India’s maritime strike capabilities. Lakshadweep lies on the Nine Degree Channel, the most direct route for East Asia-bound ships from the Persian Gulf.

Given that India and the US have tied up for Indian Ocean Region with institutionalised tie-ups with American Indo-Pacific, Central Command and African Commands, the QUAD countries will project maritime surveillance and dominance in their region with assets communicating and sharing information through secure military communication channels among air, surface and underwater combatants made possible by the Communications Compatibility and Security Agreement signed in 2018.

There was similar hype before but it was silenced after an Indian oil tanker was escorted by a Type 054 frigate to pass through some so called danger zone at Indian Ocean.

this is nonsense......how stupid does the west think the Chinese are?

The tag line is “China could make an example in South China Sea by destroying this destroyer.” Instead the Chinese will not do anything. They can wait and destroy India at a time of their chosing.


They will wait for another 5 years become stronger and keep hitting the Indians in slow painful cuts ...... if there is a way it will be on or before nov 2nd.

Well we did take more than 1000 square kilometers of Chinese claimed land on South Bank of Pangang Tso ..back on Aug 30 .
What did you do except issue threats for a week and then ...quiet down.

We hold all the dominating heights around the most strategic area in the Pangang Tso region..the Chushul bowl..which is a direct ingress route to cutting off your strategic Xingang - Tibet road..which lies just 10 km from the heights we are holding.

You claim all area up till finger 2 on North bank of Pangang Tso and corresponding area on the South back of Pangang Tso.
India claims all area up till Finger 8 on North bank and corresponding areas on the South Bank.

In April 2020 .. your army sneakily moved in from Finger 8 to occupy position up till finger 4 on the North bank Pangang Tso. Finger 4 already had permanent Indian position ..so you could not move beyond that.

On the night of Aug 29 - 30 .. Indian army occupied 30 + 6 heights on the South Bank Pangang Tso.. right up till to heights which would lie opposite in Finger 8 on the North Bank of lake.

Occupying more that 1000sq kilometers of Chinese claimed territory.
