Dear China, Delhi is well protected by Somnath Bharti's dogs, Kejriwal's tweets and Ashutosh's English. Think twice before taking any step.

Lhasa - Delhi flight time is 9h 48m, so would explain the 10h airborne troop threat by China. But still can't figure out the 48h part.

Think I got the 48h Chinese threat.
Thiruvananthapuram Rajdhani Express takes ~42h.
Adding 6h from CPM Kerala HQ that makes 48h to Delhi.

Apart from the amusements....Lets see if they really can do the unthinkable.
This is not the first time China has tried to use rhetoric as a deterrence strategy but it comes as probably the first one that is so specific. Interestingly, this also comes on the back of Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat’s pointed comment on honing India’s Cold Start strategy for Pakistan.


Does the Chinese state TV’s statement come as nothing more than a deterrence tool, or are the claims viable?


‘A Ridiculous Remark Made Without Any Practicality’


Experts and retired army officers were quick to rubbish this as illogical rhetoric, and questioned the logistics of the provocative claim. The ill-thought-out remark shows the level of understanding of the people who’ve made it, said retired colonel Rohit Agarwal. Speaking to The Quint, he broke the comment down and analysed its impracticality.


For motorized troops to infiltrate the mountainous terrain of the north-eastern border of India and advance further inside is not possible, he said.


If you’re talking about motorized troops, you need to first look at the terrain. Where will those troops come from? All of our north-eastern border is mountainous, so, even if they plan on using that route for their troops, how far can they advance? - Rohit Agarwal, Retired Colonel, Indian Army


As far as the paratroops are concerned, anyone can drop paratroops anywhere, said a former Indian army commander to The Quint. Putting the situation in perspective, he said:


If it takes their paratroops 10 hours to reach Delhi then theoretically it will take even our paratroops the same time to reach Beijing. - Rohit Agarwal, Retired Colonel, Indian Army


Agarwal explained that depending on the flying time, and the time taken to prepare, why just 10 hours? One can drop paratroopers anywhere anytime, but what thereafter? What possibilities will they have after landing in foreign territory? Will it be a clandestine operation? If so, what will it lead to? It would then be a full-scale escalation, he added.


You can drop paratroopers in Delhi as and when you like, but what will they do once they reach the ground? So, I think it’s just rhetoric. - Rohit Agarwal, Retired Colonel, Indian Army


Agarwal says it’s difficult to discern what might have prompted the state channel to issue the remark. But China is always looking to send messages and threats to India or even United States, said Brigadier Gurmeet Kanwal (Retd).


This claim is beyond ridiculous. It’s saying their motorized troops will reach Delhi in 48 hours – how will they cross the Himalayas? - Brigadier Gurmeet Kanwal (Retd)


Further, a former Army commander explained that notwithstanding all the disputes India has with China and Pakistan, the chances of a war are extremely low.


This is nothing but a figment of imagination of the television channel and a matter of who they’re quoting and how. It’s just imaginations running wild and typical punchline reporting by the state channel.- Former Army Commander


The Chinese state TV’s comment was issued without context and, seeing the experts’ views, is being interpreted as mere rhetoric – thus negating any deterrence effect it may have sought to achieve.


What if they really try to do it out of frustration from the POK side ??--A common man


The best answer is to go on all out offensive. Use Brahmos Supercruise missiles on Karakoram highway & make a crater large enough,to stop advance of Chinese Motorised troops..Threaten to use NUCLEAR WEAPONS on CHINA & position AGNI 5 missiles facing CHINA..Go on FULL DIPLOMATIC OVERDRIVE with full aggression & raise stance of CHINA aggressive stance at UN including threats to shut down chinese companies in INDIA by force within a stipulated time clearly forgetting WTO norms.
Also advocating CHINA is not fit to remain as a responsible Superpower & as a Permanent member of UNSC, CHINA can loose many things rapidly in the eyes of world powers.


**Next important factor is CAN THEY ACTUALLY??
Defence360's take : NOPE...Not that easy...


Reason:


1.CHINESE DISMAL ECONOMIC CONDITIONS

China's exports slumped more than expected in December as global trade remained sluggish while the growth in imports also cooled, official data showed Friday.

For the month, exports decreased 6.1 percent on-year in dollar-denominated terms, compared with a 0.1 percent increase in the previous month, Reuters reported on Friday, citing official data. Imports meanwhile rose 3.1 percent from a year ago, down from November's 6.7 percent growth. December's trade balance stood at $40.82 billion, versus $44.61 billion in the previous month.


A Reuters poll of economists had expected exports to fall 3.5 percent, imports to rise 2.4 percent and the monthly trade surplus to hit $46.50 billion.


For 2016, Chinese exports dropped 7.7 percent on-year, the worst fall since 2009, according to Reuters. Imports declined 5.5 percent. That left the world's second-largest economy with a 2016 trade surplus of $509.96 billion. In yuan terms, 2016 exports dropped 2 percent on-year, while imports picked up 0.6 percent.

Thus, China is in no position to attack a country which it has business with worth BILLIONS of Dollars

2.ATTACKING INDIA MIGHT AS WELL SEE A CLASH OF WORLD POWERS IN SOUTH CHINA SEA AS WELL

If Chinese try, that might trigger big military alliance formation in no time with Vietnam,Myanmar,Indonesia,USA,JAPAN ciding in support of INDIA might deploy forces to counter CHINESE AGGRESSION INSTANTLY.Japan which is raring to go at Chinese might even deploy warships in support of INDIA near BAY OF BENGAL & INDIAN OCEAN...making it a real ugly battle which might force UNSC & UN to intervene with a veto & international pressure on China to backout.

CHINA can never risk a clash with all world powers which can even start World war 3 in no time making millions of Chinese without food,shelter etc in no time.
