Indian Defense Minister: Our military fought the Chinese army in Ladakh with amazing courage and fortitude

38

China is commenting on the statement by Indian Defense Minister Rajnat Singh about the famous clash between Indian and Chinese border guards in Ladakh.


Recall that this clash with the use of force took place in the border (disputed) region. Then sticks, stones, pointed metal rods were used. Several servicemen were killed and many were injured.

The Minister of Defense of India, commenting on the events and situation in Ladakh, said that “in stories nations often have moments when they need to stand up for themselves and show that a nation can fight anyone. "

Rajnat Singh:

Our troops in East Ladakh fought the Chinese army with the greatest courage and amazing resilience, and this forced the Chinese to retreat.

Singh also called China's actions "unprovoked aggression" and added that "the future of the Indo-Pacific region is becoming increasingly uncertain."

Singh:

But India is far ahead of China when it comes to ideas and soft power.

After that, the Indian Defense Minister said that Buddhism is one of the factors of such "soft power" on the Indian side.

Commenting on these statements by the Indian minister, the PRC notes that "for India, as a nuclear power, it is strange to talk about the" greatest courage "of soldiers when they use sticks and stones." The statements of the Indian Minister of Defense in China were called "unworthy" and noted that in connection with such rhetoric, New Delhi would be more difficult to negotiate in the future.

      I suggest that dragons and elephants come out with slings and stone axes in the next round, so that it is more epic, you look in the 5th round and they will reach the harquebus.

            Cameras from Bollywood were not brought up and music and songs were not turned on. This is why it didn't work from the first take. lol

      One gets the impression that India is asking for a serious blow from China.
      Chinese people are patient. But their patience is not endless.
      And to call a fight "armature" is yes. The minister revised his Bollywood.

        It looks like this. And they want to get it from Pakistan.

      In fact, this is the "hottest" region on the planet, hardly noticed by anyone, three nuclear powers with a crowded population are simultaneously butting there for small pieces of territory! Three NUCLEAR powers with two and a half total billion population ...

            It is useless to heat Pakistan against China: India is at the side of the packs, which regularly fights with them. If Pakistan quarrels with China, it will be left face to face with the Indians. More precisely, one Pakistani for six Indians. And even nuclear weapons packs may not save.
            And hope for US help ... laughing

      But before the whole USSR was in love with Indian films and actors! Nowadays there is no power to watch for five minutes, their old films! But our films (shot in the Soviet Union) go with a bang! Soft power is something like a Hare Krishna division with beads and eternal muttering to itself :)))

      That is why the statement is so pretentious ... Probably it was said at the awards ceremony. There is no other explanation for such a long break between event and announcement.
      And the Chinese, yes, in hand-to-hand fighting - this is still the Americans in Korea understood. am

      Why did the Chinese pile on them?
      it is just that the Indians admitted that they had the dead, and the Chinese did not, but this does not mean that the Chinese did not have the dead.
      and the territory of Emnip remained with the Indians.

        Most of the Indians drowned in a mountain stream, fleeing from the Chinese. Actually, in hand-to-hand combat, the losses are not so great.

    Then sticks, stones, sharpened metal rods were used.
    It's good that it didn't come to conventional weapons. Or was it a rehearsal of a post-nuclear conflict?

    Something "soft power" constantly conflicts with its neighbors - Pakistan and China. War, an indispensable companion of capitalism. That is why the working people of India have recently staged massive strikes under the red banners. To see the prospect of being disposed of somewhere in Ladakh or Kashmir, for the interests of their ruling elite, they are not very happy.

    one of the factors of such "soft power" on the Indian side is Buddhism
    Then Hinduism is a factor of "hard power": their monks walk with brooms, sweeping insects from their path so as not to burden their karma by accidentally killing them, but when Hindus participate in conflicts, conflicts become especially bloody and violent.
