    All's quiet on the eastern front : )



    Because CCP got enough on their plate right now.

    What's interesting is the shift in spin, earlier we'd complain about their transgressions now we're saying we're twice as bad. heh.

    In other words we're not bringing up these transgressions any more.

    It was never an issue. It was a simple game of moving border marking stones. The Chinese moved it south a few metres. The Indians moved it back a few metres. Both sides had agreed to a patrol schedule that the patrols would never meet and truth be told, at times, it was damned impossible to tell how the stones were moved. Winter snow and ice causing moving soil or by human hands. No one was doing any patrolling during winter months.

    The only people who brings this up is the Indian opposition (no matter who was sitting) but both the Chinese and Indian armies had tried to avoid confrontations in this silly game of moving stones.

    It did get brought up quite a bit with the last govt. But it happened also when Xi visited and was with Modi in 2014.

    Figure that was Modi's first China test.

    It happened also when the premier came over in 2013, last year of the previous administration.

    There is usually a link between this happening and the Dalai Lama going to Tawang.

    He did in 2012 and in 2017 which some think led to Doklam.

    This Indian opposition angle is interesting and not one i've thought of before. The correlation is partial if we look back over the last ten years.

    Ten years ago it was the centre right media raising the China bogie. What was the govt doing, are we doing enough, look at what just happened. The hindu is a centre left newspaper would be more positive which then got interpreted as commie.

    Then we enter 2014 and the border clashes of 2013 & 2014 are still fresh. 2014 being when Xi was in India. Media is pretty much on the same page for these two. Then we get into 2016 and leading on up to Doklam. It's apparent relations are coming off the rails.

    During the Doklam stand off and post Doklam the centre right papers are in line with the govt.

    Come to today and now it is the Hindu picking holes in the story. They don't seem so commie these days.

    AIM is calling out the army who said his earlier report was incorrect, specious and intended only to sensationalise.

    Indian Army says ThePrint article on Chinese intrusion in Arunachal is incorrect | The Print | Sept 11 2019

    AIM is saying the Chinese have built a road one km deep into Arunachal and wonders why the Army is ignoring it.
