    While you are worrying about Covid, two nuclear powers are escalating conflict

    India, China Bring In Heavy Weapons To Bases Near Eastern Ladakh: Report


    Ladakh stand-off: The enhancement of combat capabilities by the two armies in the region came even as both countries continued their efforts to resolve the dispute through talks at military and diplomatic levels

    New Delhi:
    The Indian Army and the Chinese military are moving in heavy equipment and weaponry including artillery and combat vehicles to their rear bases close to the disputed areas in eastern Ladakh. The two sides remain engaged in a standoff along the troubled region for over 25 days, military sources said on Sunday.

    The enhancement of combat capabilities by the two armies in the region came even as both countries continued their efforts to resolve the dispute through talks at military and diplomatic levels.


    The Chinese Army has
    been gradually ramping up its strategic reserves in its rear bases near the Line of Actual Control or LAC in eastern Ladakh by rushing in artillery, infantry combat vehicles and heavy military equipment, the sources said.


    The Indian Army has also been moving in additional troops as well equipment and weapons like artillery to aggressively match up to the Chinese build-up, they said, adding that India will not relent till status quo is restored in Pangong Tso, Galwan Valley and a number of other areas.


    The Indian Air Force (IAF) has been keeping a strict aerial surveillance in the disputed region.


    A sizeable number of Chinese Army personnel entered into the Indian side of the de-facto border earlier this month and have been camping in Pangong Tso and Galwan Valley since then.

    Well, the timing's right for those of us living in Thailand. The prevailing winds are blowing from the SSW to the NNE, so no fallout from either India or China for us!

    Now we just have to worry about Chinese and Indian-made missile guidance systems.

    Doesn't count, they happen every time white cops kill unarmed black people.

    Apparently Yellowstone has been rumbling so Supervolcano is still on the board.

    From Reddit:
    Revelation 6:7 When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” 8 I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth."

    Sword/war - check

    Famine/locusts - check
    Plague/SARS-CoV-2 - check
    Wild beasts - Check

    This could be it lads.

    ...I have no doubt the Indians will bungle any attempt to retake lost territory: the Chinese will persevere due to better, more up-to-date and homegrown technology and intense indoctrination of their forces. The Indians will rely on Shiva, with Allah as backup, copious glasses of milk tea, furious headwagging, and pomp...

    I swear that I was about to say that there's also a fairly good case to be made that Trump is the Anti Christ and everything is just a portent to the Apocalypse.

    All apart of the deeper plan.
    Induced worry.

    Many are easily taken in.

    Zombies will be August, unless the alien invasion arrives early.

    So funny you posted that. That sign is famous in my neighborhood of Wallingford it is where I go to get my BBQ grill tank filled. I will not say how close my house is to this place but it is close.

    The Chines could easily win a conventional war by simply deploying greater numbers. They have form for this.
    The question remains, why would they send in heavy weapons, when a simple virus could wipe out the opposition?
    Bluff and double bluff.

    Not in those mountains they wouldn't. The Indians have been fighting the Paki's up there for ages. I doubt that the chinkies could do much better and honestly I do not think they want to find out either as it would be a measuring stick to their capability to wage war at all. Something they are afraid of doing because they want to avoid further embarrassment after the Vietnamese kicked their asses in '79.

    Warfare especially in those types of elements is no longer just a simple attrition based battle there are lots of other variables at play.
