Chinese Troops Intrude Into Arunachal, Stay For Over Two Days

"

NEW DELHI: In yet another face-off with Indian soldiers, Chinese troops had come more than 20 kilometres inside Indian territory in Chaglagam area of Arunachal Pradesh on August 13 and stayed there for over two days.

However, Army headquarters sought to play down the incursion, saying the Chinese troops have gone back to their area and such incidents keep taking place as both sides enter areas claimed by the other side while patrolling the disputed Line of Actual Control (LAC).

…after they were stopped by the Indian troops, the two sides showed banners to each other to leave the area, sources said here.

the two sides held to their positions and the Chinese soldiers left after staying put for two-three days, they said.

"such incidents keep taking place as both sides enter areas claimed by the other side while patrolling the disputed Line of Actual Control" - Hmmm. So, how many times have the Indian troops crossed into the Chinese territory? Bolo bolo?

"two sides showed banners to each other to leave the area" - A cock fight would have more action and conviction than this pathetic display of banners! Apne banners ko apni gaand mein khud hi daalkar ghar baith jaao. Or is it that you need permission from the Indian government to take that action as well?? Perhaps, if you wait long enough - the Chinese troops will do it for you.

"two sides held to their positions and the Chinese soldiers left after staying put for two-three days" - Oye! Akal ke dushman - If the Indian troops were in fact HOLDING their position then the Chinese wouldn't be able to camp out there for 2-3 days, now would they!!? At best, it can be said that the Indian troops stopped the Chinese from going further. They definitely did NOT hold their position. Samjhe ya mandarin mein samjhaaon?

Perhaps the army/troops require orders/approvals/authorisation before taking some actions. Correct me if I am wrong - Troops deployed on the border have a clear enough mandate, isn't it? Primary objective being secure the border or territory.

The 'We were waiting for orders' definitely holds weight IF the army was being deployed in a civilian area. BUT when the troops are deployed at a border, do they STILL need to wait for orders to stop incursion attempts?!?!
