    20 Indian Soldiers Killed in Deadly Border Clash With China
    The troops were apparently killed by Chinese soldiers in close-quarter combat high up in the Himalayas, just as the two countries were trying to de-escalate tensions.

    NEW DELHI — Twenty Indian Army troops were killed by Chinese soldiers late Monday in a clash along the disputed India-China border, Indian officials said, raising tensions between the two nuclear-armed nations.

    Preliminary reports on Tuesday indicated that the soldiers had not been shot, but had been killed in a brawl involving rocks and wooden clubs that was similar to fights that broke out last month along the border and seriously injured several soldiers on both sides.

    An Indian military spokesman said that three Indian troops were killed during the fighting and 17 others later succumbed to injuries. Others were missing and feared captured.

    The jagged side will do more damage. The smooth side, less. So consider that when you swing the club or throw the rock.

    Is this that remote outpost place we talked about before? Send some women up there. And booze. They sound bored / frustrated.

    I just don't understand this. This is one tiny corner of two truly vast countries, each the size of a smallish continent in itself, each with more than a billion people, and you're writing it off because 50 guys got in a fight in the most remote corner where the countries come together?

    You could spend many years actively touring China and India, visit their major cities and great sites endlessly, and literally never come within five hundred miles of this area.

    They can’t even finish the carrier the Russians built for them. But they are doing good at dredging new islands up from the South China Sea.

    Social distancing would have prevented these deaths.

    In their own back yard (think Taiwan, South China Sea) they could. Right now, they're much more of an industrial powerhouse than we are. In a protracted war, they'd probably win.

    As far as India, China has them by the gonads. Much of India's water comes from rivers that start in the Chinese held Tibetan Plateau. As some point in the not to distant future, they're going to dam up those rivers and sent the water to Beijing.

    I am also getting to realize they could win the so called trade war. Probably because how divided the U.S is right now, I hope we don't degrade to a third world country soon.
