The comment was older. GoI itself doesn't want to escalate you can see it with the tone. The Chinese keep pushing our buttons anyway. So if they want to escalate let's take the natural progression so we have a good case for our aggression. The CCP hasn't been able to act as aggressively as it did during the UPA regime because of how mentally colonised our politicians themselves are. CCP salami slicing is a non-kinetic type so if we do kinetic action it's we who come out as the villain. That's the line of thought for the GOI presumably I don't support it but there's a rhythm in how you act same for all government's.If gobbling up thousands of squares kilometers of land is not a clear cut case of aggression then what is?
