When the Chinese state-run media suggested that their country was two weeks away from possibly going to war with India earlier this month, they probably weren’t expecting a childish brawl between their armies, but that’s exactly what happened a few days ago. Footage of a scuffle between Chinese and Indian soldiers in the disputed Ladakh region of Northern India has surfaced, and spread far and wide on social media. It shows the soldiers beating and grappling with each other. Some accounts have suggested that the Chinese soldiers carried rocks and iron rods.

Initial reports claimed that the Chinese forces were the aggressors, and the Indian border guards had repelled them. However, now both governments are pretending that the incident never occurred. India has refused to confirm or deny that the brawl took place, and Chinese officials are flat out denying it.
According to PTI, China said that it was “not aware” of reports of PLA soldiers entering Indian territory and said it is “committed to peace and tranquillity along the border.” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hu Chunying said, “I am not aware of the information.” She said the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) troops always patrol along the Chinese side of the Line of Actual Control (LAC).”We urge the Indian side abide by the LAC and relevant conventions between the two sides,” she added.
There’s a very good reason for that response. As ridiculous as this incident may appear, it also represents a dire threat. Wars have been started over far less, and if both governments deny it happened, then they don’t have to address it. If they tried to confront each other over this fight, it could lead to the most devastating war in human history. At least it looks like both sides are trying to avoid that outcome.

At least they are willing to settle it like men.
LMFAO !!! Never bring rocks and iron rods to a gunfight !!! 🙂
Their cheap Chinese crap and cheap Indian crap doesn’t work so they have to resort to fisticuffs.
Rocks and pipes? Someone please tell me again why people think china would win a war against the US?
LOL! Thanks for the blast from the past!
Exactly! This is what I envision when we talk of going hand to hand with Chinese soldiers!
It could all be a staged event with crisis actors, to really get both sides fighting. Conquer and divide strategy.
Remember, don’t believe anything you hear, and only half of what you see. Lots of BS propaganda floating around.
This is what Americans need to stay focused on.
Wikileaks Reveals McCain and Ryan Are On the Take From the Clinton Foundation
i think it was smart for trump to fill the seats with military zombies at his address for making afganistan great again, those brainwashed, lowpaid cowards will keep their mouth shut.
Keep your eyes on these guys….more to come.
Jim, its the Chinese who need to be watched. They’re the problem, NOT the Indians.
Does anybody believe that our Warships just accidentally keep running into things in the Pacific. I think what is happening with our Warships is just like what happened between the Chinese and Indian soldiers.
Just give eachother a big noogie and a hard snuggie and call it a day lol.
i have seen worse fights at the NCO club over who gets to take the fat girl home or which beer is better coors or bud.
No I do not believe that our warships just accidently keep running into tankers. Something more is afoot here.
However it could be Karma that the USS McCain got clobbered on the right side and a harbinger of things to come !!! 🙂
well, you have to remember that they make children into officers and we have lost every war for like over 60 years so…yea i believe that the squids are idiots??
Gandhi, agreed. I couldn’t tell which side was which but I’d put my money on the Indians. At least I hope they gave the chinks a good ass-beating. I’d be willing to help anyone who’s been victimized by Red Chinese. They’re one of the most treacherous groups of people in the world. Indians are tough and don’t even take shit from Muslims.
we could sell tickets to that show.
yes, just like our military, govt prolly didnt trust them with boolits.
Like ANTIFA and BLM.
The chinks go around with a chip on their shoulders these days. they’re going to screw around and someone’s going to knock that chip from their chink shoulders. They think they’re better than anyone else. They ain’t about shit in my book.
Deplorable Bravetoad: you’re a real tuff guy, I bet you could take ’em on, right? Those chinks would kick the daylights out of you, you frumpy senior citizen fraud!
Spoonman, wtf yanked on your chain? Would YOU like to come find out for yourself if I’m a fraud?
Ha Ha Ha…what a fraud! As if I or anyone else is going to waste their time looking for you…talk is cheap you clown! BRAVEFLOP
Spoonman, you don’t want to try it, eh? Well, you’re playing it smart on one thing I’ll give you that.
correct, no one dares to walk into whatever cesspool you inhabit!
Braveflop vs the winner of Mayweather/McGregor?? He says he can beat anyone…bring it on!
Braveheart, the PTB have made a terrible mistake thinking China is anything but trouble with a capital T. Napoleon had it right and Nixon was a fool.
Apparently, even 200-odd years ago, Napoleon had the foresight to predict what’s happening in the world today.
On China…He was supposed to have said, “Let China Sleep, for when the Dragon awakes, she will shake the world.” AND NOT IN A GOOD WAY!
Justice, I agree the chinks have the capacity to stir up a lot of trouble but I still question their military capabilities. First, the Chinese army hasn’t been to war with anyone since Vietnam in 1979 and they were defeated by the Vietnamese. Second, it’s still unknown whether China’s weapon systems will be anything to fear since they haven’t been tested in actual combat. Unless and until the chinks make a move we don’t know for sure what all they can do.
The Vietnamese defeated us as well.
Does that say the same thing about us?
Id like to see a chink punch you in the face Dep BH and see what you do. lol Your mouth is writing checks your old man body can’t cash. What are you about 60 Yrs old now? Still shooting your mouth off. lol
CSS, just bring it on anytime you want you POS.
Yeah what ever blathering big mouth. Still living in your Van?
CSS, what’s your beef? Get up on the wrong side of the bed this morning?
I honestly can’t stand the chinks or the smelly, dirty ass Indians or the Paki’s and all of the rest of those filthy, sneaky 2 legged Rats!
how primitive-dont they have guns ?
Remember West Side Story where the Jets and the Sharks agreed to rumble? Both sides agreed to make it a fist fight between the best men from both gangs. Somebody brought knives and the fight ended in two deaths. The territory in dispute is not worth dying over but it won’t stop it from happening.
Rocks and pipes yesterday, Nukes today, back to Rocks tomorrow. 2000 years from now back to Nukes.
hmmm, rocks then clubs then spears then swords then arrows then guns then explosives, then nukes, then terminator robots, then bioweapons, then no more people then peace.
Chi-coms got that Bruce Lee “WA TAAAHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Hindu’s be like, “Oh, that hurts. I need my old job back at the call center.”
That 2nd from the right Chi-Com has a badass grenade launcher. Looks too small to be
40mm. Single shot 37mm maybe?
Doesn’t matter which side you root for or place your bets on. The odds are never in favor of Humanity.
I studied Mandarin when I was a kid.
Chinese people for the most part are like
everyone else, if they get plenty of food, beer,
sex, they are happy.
What they lack is our history of
several thousand years of practice
at butchering each other.
Their society is much more orderly,
but weaker, as innovation is not
Trump’s speech means we are going to make afganistan great again…
No need for them to innovate, Rellik – the Clintons sold them all our military secrets back in the late 1990s.
Haint y’all heard! We’s goin ta waa with the Pakis! Means we’s at waa with the chinkies! Means the globulist cabal put the Donald in his bubble and told em…don’t step out of it!
Amazing! Both sides were armed with Military Rifles and not one resorted to using them. I’ld say that demonstrates enormous self control. Can you imagine a fight between black soldiers and white soldiers, both armed. No doubt in my mind, the idiots would kill each other.
That said, what a terrible waste of a beautiful beach. Surf’s up.
I worked on B52’s
I had two armed officers
sitting behind me and a
fellow technician, watching
my every move.
If I did anything wrong all
he had to do was say
“stop him” and I would
have been shot.
I was 19. soldiers do
what they are told.
The alternative is usually
Then why did you join?
could it be that he didn’t know until AFTER he joined?
The Military is like slavery. There are those with Guns and those who work on B52’s. Of course the US military recruits the young and dumb, just ripe enough they are willing to kill or do anything they are told for a small paycheck.
And you thought you were dong something honorable like Protecting our freedoms. Con Job!! You are a paid mercenary thugs in one of the worlds largest gangs invading, looting and nation destroying for the Wallstreet banksters and corporate fascists.
As USMC Major General two time recipient of the Medal Of Honor Smedley Butler said:
“I served in all commissioned ranks from a second Lieutenant to a Major General. And during that time, I spent most of my time being a high-class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street, and for the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer for capitalism.”
yeah, but really he was not that “high class” really. just another govt stooge.
I think it is all staged. Just more fake news. Nothing here folks, move along to the next article helping of BS fear porn.
Probably neither side had ammo.
Really looks like one indian was shot at the end of the vid.
He flops and moves very little then not at all.
rellik, the “picture” in the article above with the soldiers on the beach is a video. Click it and you can see the scuffle.
Scuffle! Heck it just looked like when I was a kid and we played capture the flag.
HAHAHA , Looked like just another saturday night around here….
looks to me like he was hit in the head with a rock whick knocked him into next week. i really expected more back flips and kung-fu moves. but it was fun just the same.
Naw, It was a BFR that bounced off his head. Watch it hit the beach sand as it stirs up more dust.
Looks like the fans at a British soccer match to me.
The population of both countries could use a nice haircut. lols
Just a beach party got out of hand is all
I would much sooner see them settle things this way than with weapons and nukes
We need this war. We also need a war between China and Africa. These conflicts would help bring down the world population and prevent a future population disaster. Apparently Africans are now having dozens of children with several women these days, starting banging the ‘women’ up at the age of 15 or younger. As we can see in the Middle East, the conflict brings down the population in two ways and re-stabilizes the planet: the first is simply deaths from combat, the second is through wrecking their economies and societies so there is no longer the prosperity to encourage child births.
That fight looks like two bald men fighting over a comb.
None of this on the scale you proposed operates in a vacuum.
Too late, in regard the China, the sleeping giant has awoken and I read that posted remark 40 years ago on the front of time magazine.
The Chinese are very methodical with over 2,000 years of history and wisdom.
Their time hasn’t come for them to make their impact upon the world.
But, it is coming.
The next empire perhaps after the U.S.A.
Will clash with The E.U.
This is being done in reverse order. You fight with sticks and stones after the nuclear war.
China wants to build a road so it can exploit the resources of Bhutan, which has a corrupt goverment on Chinese payrol
I could not tell what nationality the gentleman were. Seemed to be upset over something though.
All I can think of from the title and watching the clip,is the scene from 2001 Space Odyssey with the two tribes of apes fighting over the water hole
yes, a major chimp-out
China will win because they have the more advanced society. The majority of Indians still poop outside: they have yet to invent the toilet and running water. India is essentially a small middle class making money from outsourced IT services sitting on top of a majority population of people with a lower standard of living than Africa.
China makes iPhones, MacBooks, has the world’s most powerful super computers, robotics, gene science, and, yes, flush toilets, running water.
