This is just a news posted here. India does not need any validation.Why do Indians need validation from the enemy (i.e. the Chinese)? As a matter of fact, why are Indians happy a retired Chinese general said this? This means that the Chinese already have prepared for the event of a surprise Indian attack and are extremely aware of Indian troop dispositions in the area. If a retired general already analyzed the situation as such, imagine what must be going on in the PLA Western Theatre Command ... if I were Indian, I would be much happier if the Chinese general said that the Indians would be squashed like bugs and that there is no need to regard them as a threat whatsoever because they are weaklings.
Capturing a few heights on your side of the LAC and over 2 kilometers from Black Top does not mean crossing the LAC lmao. The only one who crossed the LAC is the Chinese and they are sitting on a nice 1000 square kilometers of your territory
