    Can anyone in the know here throw some light on how well we stack up against the chinese if they decide to open other fronts to relieve pressure in Dokalam? Can we hold on to our territory in other hotspots?
    Also what happens to our odds generally if the hostilities break out on a larger scale.

    He made a totally useless point, that doesn't even showed any strength and that's why the Chinese didn't even blinked to hit back.

    It's not about the plateau but about power! They want to show strength and that they can do what they want, just as they are doing in the South Chinese Sea. So far they only tried to mess with us by reaching out their presence in the region, but this is different and directly targeted at us. As @Hellfire said as well

    Russia has nothing to do with China ; this is not 1971
    where the Red Army had deployed some 40 divisions against China

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sino-Soviet_border_conflict

    And today Chinese money Fuels Russian economy

    If it is anybody who can help us it is USA

    If they impose a war on us ; we have to fight

    We are not going to negotiate or Bargain with them

    Let us see how much are they willing to loose for Plateaus and Grazing lands

    He conveyed a message Precisely and diplomatically

    It is another thing that The Chinese were rattled by it ; so they are Barking ever since

    The Vietnamese put them in their place in 1979

    In 1987 ; they were barking for Six Months

    Let us see their strength

    Not likely. Local movement only likely in case of an assured victory, which is not likely. Our capabilities are oriented only to limiting ingress into Bhutan/own territory and holding PLA to a standstill, not capturing and holding territory of adversary.

    There are several places all along the LAC where we can out flank them
    and ambush them in the same way they did in 1962

    We need not fight a defensive war

    Chumbi valley is a death Trap for them

    @Sancho @Hellfire

    The Simple fact is that Indian Army is confident of its strength

    Those Brigades and Divisions in Sikkim and Bhutan are Not acting Independently

    Otherwise Army HQ s would have simply reprimanded the COs and transferred them

    The COAS went there at the site to see our preparations so as to explain the
    situation to his bosses in Delhi

    This is not the Army of 2009

    @Hellfire

    Is it possible China is using this situation in order to divert the American pressure on the Chinese to act on North Korea?

    I was 48 when I tried to climb Mt Whitney at 14,500 ft, but stopped shy of the peak and returned from 12,000 ft. All this without acclimatization, we started at 1 am from base camp at 8k and returned by 5 pm. It was indeed tough.
