Anything swift actions needs a surprise factor ..........Chinese with their actions in ladakh made sure IA is deployed through out the LAC to deny them the surprise factor , not a great strategy by Chinese I would say . Lets not make a 7 feet superman out of these PLA guysKeep watch, change tacticts, as they now know the strength, swiftness of the Indian armed forces , they have tested the Indian army by themselves deploying the superficial force as a fodder. Next incursion will be deadly, very swift and deep and more diplomatically supported.
Surprize factor means intrude when the counter part is not in alert. No matter what is deployed where and since when.Anything swift actions needs a surprise factor ..........Chinese with their actions in ladakh made sure IA is deployed through out the LAC to deny them the surprise factor , not a great strategy by Chinese I would say .

I don't think India is looking at the US for relentless & limitless support. If you read the other piece in the same article on the situation at the LAC, I think you'd come to the same conclusion.Its actually a nicely worded reminder to India that US support isnt worth jackshit and that India will probably end up facing China alone.
Difficult to say. If I were the Chinese I'd wait & watch to see the Taliban effectively establish it's writ all over or at least prevent debilitating attacks of the kind witnessed at Kabul Airport today before I commit investment to it.@_Anonymous_ do you see a CPEC like framework coming up with Afghanistan. China is showing eagerness to tap the mineral wealth in Afghanistan and with NATO presence finished and the Taliban desperate for foreign approval they seem to be pretty well placed. It will be a good excuse to get some PLA presence there and opens up a lot of options for them against us.
Frankly they've done whatever they've done when a "strong" leader is at the helm of affairs.Clear message to India. They will intrude again when Indian political alertness will be weak and inputs will be ignored by the leaders and this time it will be massive than ever before. They are only waiting India to have a weak leader.

There's another fallacy here which needs debunking & which this government hasn't done anything to eliminate such a thought. It's not the prospect of victory but the cost of it too which the Chinese would've factored in.China doesnt give a crap who is in power.
They are sitting pretty with the difference in power as forces sit currently. (I know people will jump at this remark)
They are smug about the difference in Industrial deficit. Hypothetically they can replace 200 tanks in 4 months if we take them out. Same for planes - frontline fighters can be replaced at a decent rate.
Our equipment levels will be extremely sensitive to attrition.
