    The Indian Army has started preparing itself to be stationed along the Line of Actual Control during the harsh winters as New Delhi fears further transgression by China and a possible repeat of Siachen conflict that erupted between India and Pakistan in 1984.
    HindustanTimes citing Indian government officials claims the Indian Army has asked its defence attaches posted in embassies in the US, Russia and Europe to explore warm clothes and snow tent manufacturers in case there is a need for emergency buying due to ongoing India-China conflict.
    During the Operation Meghdoot in Siachen in 1984, the Indian Army kept a close watch on suppliers of Arctic gear in Europe, leading to a discovery that the Pakistanis had ordered 150 sets from a dealer in the UK. India also acquired the Arctic gear and launched a full-fledged operation in the summer of 1984 to pre-empt the Pakistanis and take full control of the Siachen Glacier.

    The HT report says that the Indian Army is clear that they will have to defend critical points along the LAC in specific areas to prevent any Chinese PLA hostility next year. “After the PLA aggression, we don’t trust the Chinese and fear that they will come back again north of Pangong Tso as summer arrives in 2021,” said a military commander.
    With the harsh and arid climate of Ladakh, not much snow is anticipated in the general area of patrolling points 15, 16 or 17, but at Chang La which is over 17,000 feet, gets draped in snow and lies en route to Pangong Tso.
    To cater for winter clothing needs, we have not only placed orders with domestic suppliers but also directed soldiers other than those stationed on Saltoro ridge and Siachen glacier to give up extreme snow clothing, HT quoted a commander saying.

    Luckily for us , the current Chinese emperor is an idiot, has opened so many fronts. A unified anti China alliance is forming, all around China.

    A scenario where.. China starts a border war with India..USA deploys multiple carrier battle groups in South China Sea ..Taiwan uses the opportunity to declare independence is a real possibility.

    Doesn't work like that, China has to be the agressor or seem like one, for Democracies of the world to unite.

    This defeatist-cum- naive mindset has cost you a big chunk of your territory. I wonder how deep the Modi effect goes in India.

    Still creating scenarios out of thin air without considering the ground reality. Keep in mind, no US, Australia, EU or xyz will come to your rescue. If you wish to count on them, keep counting and loosing more territory.

    Sit tight, the Chinese now have their eyes on 7 states.

    Exactly what have we lost?

    This is especially rich coming from Pakistanis a country which has looked towards foreign powers to come save and keester again and again.

    May that be China in 1965 ..US in 1971or US in 1999 again.

    Even to this day, Pakistanis day dream , that one day if India and China go to war.. Pakistan might be able to capture Kashmir.

    It’s so funny, when Indians expect the help of the United States, they laugh at Pakistan

    Shocking unpreparedness. IA is only ever ready to attack unarmed kashmiri civilians.
