China has given India a series of warnings to withdraw its troops from the disputed area to avoid confrontation. But India continues standing its ground in the border stand-off it has little chance of winning if the actual military fighting breaks out.
Amid reports that Beijing keeps sending more of its troops closer to the border stand-off with India, Senior Col Li Li of the People’s Liberation Army gave an ominous warning to Indians on Monday, calling India’s move to send troops into the disputed patch of land inBhutan an “invasion of Chinese territory,” and insisting that the Chinese army will do its “best” to “protect territorial integrity,” according to The Economic Times.
China’s annual defense spending dwarfs India’s, $216 billion to $56 billion, but that is not the only factor that leaves New Delhi little to no chances of defeating the world’s second largest military in case a China vs. India war breaks out. But it’s not only intimidating stats of China’s military prowess and the anti-Indian rhetoric in the Chinese media that gives a realistic forecast of a China vs. India war, it’s also New Delhi itself who has a gloomy outlook for its army.
In a down-to-earth report into the state of the Indian army submitted to Parliament, India’s Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) reveals disturbing findings about the army’s battle preparedness, making the prospect of a China vs. India war even scarier for the Indians.
The CAG report, which was made public in The Hindustan Times and serves as a follow-up to the conclusions of May 2015, reveals that the Indian army is suffering from a dramatic shortfall of necessary ammunition, gloomy unpreparedness for intense fighting, a disturbing shortage of essential resources as well as inadequate training of Indian soldiers.
Despite all the eagerness to attack China militarily and bravery of Indian commenters on social media, the CAG report shows that the Indian army may be not ready to fight neither China nor Pakistan, with whom India has engaged in separate territorial disputes.
