    Agree. Tibet & Xinjiang should be that neutral zone, for everybody.

    Video from December, last year. Among many things, the COAS says that Pakistan must understand they are never going to get Kashmir. Talks about IBGs, Theater Commands (Andaman), infrastructure along the China border.

    Are you open to becoming a talking head ? Things you've said here for years deserves a wider audience.

    He's editor of the channel and right now wears many hats. Just over a year old.

    They'll get better with time. I've been impressed with their work so far as journalists.

    Don't know of other channels that have as narrow a focus

    They're already there on YT but unfortunately, they're in Chinese and very few professionals speaking professional instead of propaganda. Channels like SNI are meant for the armchair generals.

    I also rather not deal with fanboys who can kill a YT channel just through their protests.

    However, this vid answers the question of battle readiness more than him

    All this means nobody is getting the real answers. When will it change. Even fewer can tell the difference between real and propaganda. Over ten years you've been harping on about this. Progress has been slow.

    You don't have to do seminar. Idea is to cut through all of this and make it clear to civvies.

    They covered our UN efforts in South Sudan. Interviewed the president, the IND BATT (you were a blue helmet too) and the ambassador. How many Indians can find South Sudan on a map ? How many knew we were there. No news channel covered it other than in passing.

    They got a former AOC-in C in to clear up the F16 controversy. Never saw that on any channel. Nitin was a former journalist, he seems to have good connections with the top brass. He never served but his dad was a soldier i was told.

    I also rather not deal with fanboys who can kill a YT channel just through their protests.
    I was in two minds whether to mention it as if it works then we won't see you here very often. Just cause you couldn't make it as a porn star does not mean there aren't other ways to become world famous. HAHA!

    Kiling YT channel won't be your concern. Hiring staff to sift through your fan mail might be.

    However, this vid answers the question of battle readiness more than him

    I've seen videos like this but i'm not seeing what you are. They usually show up as joke videos.

    Like everything else on YT, you find the channels you want and there are enough fanboys everywhere who will scream that you've got the colours of the landing beach sand wrong. Takes a lot more patience than I have to erase their propaganda from the channel. WAB has been good precisely because we control the fanboys.

    At least get the information right. The PLA/PLAN/PLAAF has long been sinced renamed the China Army, the China Navy, and the China Air Force, and traditionally, the PLA was never an infantry centric force, it was an artillery army. He spent a whole 5 minutes explain what PLA/PLAN/PLAAF meant when that information was obsolete. He went back to 2013 when the initial re-org was 1980, right after the 1st Sino-Vietnam War. Seriously, it was like he just read the 2118 Issue of the IISS STRATEGIC REVIEW.

    Go on then, what is your problem with their product. Are they also as superficial. They charge good money for their stuff.

    The private throws the grenade it bounces back into the pit. The DI saves the private's life. Pretty damn awesome.

    I see now why these videos are out there.

    Those DI's have to be the worlds best teachers, they don't get to pick their trainees or whine about them, they have to train ANY ONE and make them useful

    10 pages on China do not even begin to describe Chinese military developmental success and failures which in itself is important. They learned what not to do.
