No and the man is a deranged monkey.

Not with china but they’re fully preparing for an attack on Pakistan

The world watched what happened with Russia, war even against a foe you have massive numerical advantage isn’t easy. War between foes which both have the ability to damage each other severely, and can become attritional very quickly is a nightmare no one wants.
Aside a limited skirmish that’s all you may ever see.
Pakistan needs to worry more about the creatures attacking it internally.

In recent weeks the following things have happened.
1) PLA is erecting watch towers within Indian claimed lines.
2)PLAAF flying very close to LAC frequently.
3)PLA conducting massive drills along the LAC frequently with more intensity.
4) Better roads and infrastructure near the LAC.
5)Construction of dual purposes villages along the LAC.
6) PLA defences along the LAC strengthened.

These actions could easily be explained as strengthening their deterrence as their focus shifts to the Taiwan theater, in order to prevent India from stabbing it in the back of war over Taiwan comes.

I can hardly believe China is interested in a big war with India at a time when conflict is brewing over its most primary interest.

In the short term, both sides are increasing their deployments and strengthening their defences, with PLA having a clear edge as we speak.
In the medium term, nearly all Indian defence analysts claim there will be a short war with PLA dominating the Indian forces.
Historically both sides have had frequent small and large skirmishes at regular intervals.
In my opinion, China will definitely not miss an opportunity to hammer India at the time of its choice and annexe further territories. There may not be a full-fledged war, but the LAC will simmer from time to time.

Subramanyam swami is an attention seeker. Don't take him seriously.
Everytime India and China feels that its getting dangerous, they sit with white flags and resolve issues. It takes time but both can wait rather than going to war.

China could smash india within 2 days they will reach Delhi. Indian army will collapse just like in 67
A Turkish supporing China? :lol: Why not come out with your real flag, you are as much Turkish as I am Swedish.

But lets put that aside for a minute

Do you have any idea how hard it is to invade across the himalayan mountains? Even like 50 kms in and they will face heavy resistance - embedded soldiers on top of hilltops, ambushes in valleys, snipers in jungles etc etc. Tanks are totally useless in such a terrain and will be sitting ducks for shoulder fired missiles. If a tiny flat terrain country like Ukraine can defend itself from Russia, then what hope is there for China against India across the himalayan mountains? But lets assume they do manage to invade several hundred kms in and are about to reach Delhi - so that means the war is lost and either we can live under China's rule or we can take them to hell with us - the response will be 100s of nukes hitting different Chinese cities - we will get destroyed but we will take China and the rest of the world along with us.

no ones wants a nuclear war, and china certainly has zero wish to even try to occupy any indian city.

that said, you think far too highly of india,
Do we know how hard it is to push in the mountains? maybe not, people on the internet probably has no real idea. but china, and the PLA certainly does, china literally already pushed india greater than 50km on a broad front in 62', what specifically makes you think they can't do it again? oh today's india isn't 1962 india. sure fair, but also today's india is actually far, far more behind china in every way than the india of 1962 compared to china of 1962, at that time the two sides, on paper, were nearly equal, whether GDP or equipment, today its incomparable.

also, india doesn't have nearly enough nukes to take everyone with you, one. india's got tiny fission devices with yields in the kilotons, and two, you got all of 160 devices with more than half of those having delivery vehicles with far less range than required to hit even east china, nevermind rest of world. heck i'd wager, you couldn't even kill off just china in between your small yields, unsurvivable delivery platforms(the jets and your one super loud , 1st generation ssbn with super short ranged missiles), and china's own anti-missile net. that said, china likely could not stop all of them and some would leak through and it would not like to be hit with even one small nuke, even if they can actually end all of india with its own, fusion based, deterrence. china has much bigger fish to contend with, namely the us hence the nuclear build up, in face of us threats.
no, if push came to shove, it would essentially be a replay of 1962. destroy what air force India sends, crush its defending army units in the area and advance to the base of the Himalayas, fortify and dangle peace while threatening with its ability to hit new delphi while not actually hitting it, china keeps its claims because this time it won't face nearly a bad of a logistical situation as last time when it had to retreat from certain areas it already took, but they will at least retreat from actual India land. and the ball is in india's court of whether to escalate, ie attempt a naval war which it would certainly lose, or keep sending in men to died in pointless fights against harden positions manned by superior foes until its government falls and the next ones accepts peace.

No.

Reasons are quite simple:

- Chinese PLA is superior in both tech and manpower, in every branch of armed forced.

- Geography; Tibet is mountainous and a natural fortess/barrier

- Chinese goods are neccesary for India to keep some level of material comfort for the vast poor masses.

- China dont want war; because they hate to start wars that are uneccesary, because its stupid strategy to waste energy on war when you can use money more productive ways, like building roads, homes, hospitals, pensions, tech.

- India imports 100 bil USD every year from China and a war between them will therefore also harm China economy to some extent.

- Final and most important: Its all chest thumping in order to milk America for more money, investments and geopolitical benefits. This is how india plays/balances all major powers.

We should have went to war with India as China did in 1962.
