China Ready For A Two Front War With US In South China Sea & India-China Border?

India-China border clash seems to be prolonging and possibilities of a full-scale war are looming. The US has extended its support to India over its border conflicts with China and this has expectedly perturbed Beijing.

France Accelerates Rafale Fighter Jet Deliveries To India Over Border Conflict With China – Reports

Chinese experts acknowledge that Indian Army is expecting a prolonged standoff in the China-India border region. They also boost that the Chinese army battle-ready on all the fronts and has accelerated military drills in the South China Sea, Taiwan and India-China border.

Recently, Indian Army chief M M Naravane briefed PM Narendra Modi and Defense Minister Rajnath Singh on the situation on the India-China border and is believed to have conveyed to expect a prolonged standoff between Indian Army and PLA Troops.

Declaring that China has stationed Su-30 fighter jets and H-6 bombers near the border, India, in retaliation, deployed the Akash air defence system in Ladakh as per reports in media.

Chinese experts claim that the Indian moves came after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that the US is decreasing troop numbers in Germany and deploying them to other places to “face the Chinese threat to India and Southeast Asian nations.”

US, Japan, India, Australia & ASEAN To Join Hands To Counter A ‘Belligerent’ China

Chinese experts state that Washington had long been dreaming to play India as a card in its strategy to counter and contain China, and it has now got the chance to use Indian hardliners as fodder as China-India border tensions escalate.

However,  experts claim that it is wishful thinking that the US would come to Indian aid and counter Chinese troops in the South China Sea so that New Delhi could intensify skirmishes and pin down China at the border.

India or China: Who Will Russia Support In A Possible Clash Between India & China?

This is simply a misconception of the Indian Army as the US will only take advantage of the situation to contain China and will never station their own troops on the border. This “strategic surrounding” of China is very weak, Wei Dongxu, a Beijing-based military expert, told the Global Times.

Wei says – the PLA troops have high war readiness in all fronts, but despite India-China border tensions and confrontations in the South China Sea, the risk of a full-scale war remains very low thanks to the PLA’s strategic deterrence.

The report by Chinese state media sates – defence drills will be held in the South China Sea from Wednesday to July 5, according to a notice released by China’s Maritime Safety Administration.

In the direction of Taiwan, PLA military aircraft approached the island at least eight times in June, with many missions speculatively aimed at intercepting US jets flying near the island. The PLA 73rd Group Army recently held live-fire amphibious landing exercises using heavy weapons and equipment in East China’s Fujian Province.

India Only Gained ‘Dead Soldiers’ In Conflict With Chinese PLA Troops

All these military drills did not prevent PLA exercises near the China-India border, as a joint brigade attached to the PLA 74th Group Army were recently mobilized for 24 hours artillery strike drills.

The report concludes by saying that the US will not get involved in a full-scale war with China and India will only be used as a cannon fodder between the clash of two giants, while also subtly asserting that Beijing is ready on all fronts to counter the enemies.
