    I told you guys, PLA will attack in Aksai Chin or Central sector. They will not do much in Sikkim or AP.

    Amid strained ties over the Doklam standoff in the Sikkim sector, Indian and Chinese boat patrols clashed at the Pangong lake in Ladakh on Tuesday even as the People’s Liberation Army declined the Indian invitation to participate in ceremonial border meetings on the occasion of India’s Independence Day. This is the first time since 2005 that the PLA has declined to meet with their Indian counterpart.
    Doklam standoff: Here is all that happened in the past 24 hours



    1. Indian and Chinese boat patrols clashed with each other at Pangong Tso lake in Ladakh at 7:30 am near the Finger-6 part of the 135-km long lake, one-third of which is in Indian control and the rest under Chinese control. The brief standoff led to jostling and exchange of blows between soldiers of the two armies. No shots were fired though.



    2. Sources told the Indian Express said at least 52 trucks belonging to the Chinese army were spotted parked on the road built by the Chinese on the side of the lake but they moved out by the evening. The Indian Army, however, refused to comment on the issue. Also Read: Indian, Chinese patrols clash on Ladakh lake, PLA skips Independence Day meets


    3. This fresh standoff at Pangong Tso lake in Ladakh comes in the backdrop of tensions between Indian and Chinese troops over Doklam plateau in Sikkim sector with the PLA skipping the ceremonial border meetings on Independence Day.



    4. For the first time since 2005, the ceremonial meeting with the troops of both sides was not held on August 15. Another ceremonial meeting, which used to be held on the Chinese side on August 1, the founding day of the PLA, was also not held this year.



    5. Indian and Chinese troops have been engaged in a stand-off in the Doklam area of the Sikkim sector for seven weeks now after Indian troops stopped the Chinese army from building a road in the disputed area. China claimed that they were constructing the road within their territory and has been demanding immediate pull-out of the Indian troops from the disputed Doklam plateau. New Delhi has expressed concern over the road building, apprehending that it may allow Chinese troops to cut India’s access to its northeastern states.




    6. India has conveyed to the Chinese government that the road construction would represent a significant change of status quo with serious security implications for it. Doka La is the Indian name for the region which Bhutan recognises as Doklam, while China claims it as part of its Donglang region.



    7. Of the 3,488-km-long India-China border from Jammu and Kashmir to Arunachal Pradesh, a 220-km section falls in Sikkim. China also claims that Thimphu has no dispute with Beijing over Doklam

    In next few years, the biggest import bill of India will be electronic equipment and majority of it will come from abroad/China unless we make all out efforts to create world class hardware set up in India. The import bill will be bigger than the Oil and Gold combined.

    Chinese Australians in their supercars protest against India on its 70th Independence day
    Published August 16, 2017 SOURCE: jinriaozhou.com

    [​IMG]

    On Tuesday 15th August at around 12:40pm, a fleet of supercars, organized by a Sydney-based Australian Chinese automobile club, started their parade, led by a red Bentley covered by Chinese flag pattern. Bentleys, Lamborghinis, BMW, AUDI and Maseratis were among the 10 luxury cars that joined the parade across Sydney, passing three universities including Sydney University, the University of New South Wales and the University of Technology Sydney. It comes not long after a spate of racist anti-Chinese graffiti and posters were identified in Universities across Australia. Additionally, the cars continued their parade past some places of interest including Chinatown, Martin Place, Sydney Opera House, the Art Gallery of NSW, before arriving at their ultimate destination – the Consulate General of India in Sydney. The cars were decorated with the Chinese flag and stickers featuring slogans including: “Borderline is our baseline;” “China: Not even a bit can be left behind;” and, “Anyone who offends China will be killed no matter how far the target is.” The cars revved their engines loudly outside the Consulate General of India in Sydney, to protest against India over an escalating military situation between India and China, with both sides accusing the other of territorial intrusions. The day they chose for the protests was of particular significance as Indian Australians around the country celebrated Independence day – marking the 70 anniversary of the handover from British rule. The organiser, who requested to remain anonymous, told local Chinese media outlet Sydney Today that the drivers voluntarily joined the demonstration, aiming to attract public attention to the meaning of the parade, not just to show off their cars. The organiser said therefore that all the drivers chose to drive slowly and “strictly comply with road rules – with no horn, no speeding and not window-opening”. “To demonstrate our determination to defense our sovereignty in a civilized way,” said the organizer. “We are a group of hard working people and hope to contribute to the community. We are not those who got nothing to do but drive around. We hope people recognized our actions.” However not everyone in the community agrees with the protest. A comment left on Weibo, a Chinese social media platform, describes it as “pretentious behaviors by the rich second generation”. Another comment condemns government’s inaction, “why do we pay (tax) to have the army then? “ The news has also stirred up some discussion on SBS Punjabi’s Facebook page. SBS Mandarin has sought comments from the Consulate General of India in Sydney regarding to how they were affected by the protest on the day they remark their Independence Day.

    The serpents have been 'smoked out' for the Aussies to see. No wonder some Chinese are always under surveillance in the US.
