The clashes in the Himalayas came a few days after US troops held drills with India in the region

The US provided India with unprecedented intelligence-sharing during a clash between Indian and Chinese troops in December 2022 along the disputed border high in the Himalayas, known as the Line of Actual Control, US News reported on Monday.
The report cited current and former US officials who said the intelligence sharing was possible thanks to a military pact Washington and New Delhi signed in 2020, known as the Basic Exchange and Cooperation Agreement (BECA). The deal was inked following deadly clashes between Chinese and Indian troops along the LAC in the Galwan Valley that killed 20 Indian soldiers and at least four Chinese troops.
Dozens of injuries were reported in the December 2022 clashes, but there were no deaths. Chinese and Indian troops deployed to the region are not armed with guns and typically battle with spiked clubs along the LAC.
According to US News, the US provided India with real-time details of China’s positions and its force strength ahead of the clashes, which the sources say were sparked by a Chinese military incursion, and Indian troops maneuvered to intercept the Chinese forces. The information included satellite imagery and was more detailed and delivered faster than anything provided by the US before.
“They were waiting. And that’s because the US had given India everything to be fully prepared for this,” one source told US News. “It demonstrates a test case of the success of how the two militaries are now cooperating and sharing intelligence.”
The clash could have been provoked by joint US and Indian military drills conducted days before that were held 60 miles from the disputed border. China’s Foreign Ministry said the exercises violated border agreements Beijing and New Delhi signed in 1993 and 1996.
While in the Himalayas, the US Army unit that was deployed there conducted a promotion ceremony in view of the Nanda Devi, the second-tallest mountain in India. They also held a rock concert that soldiers performed in, and both events were publicized by the US Army. Several current and former officials said the events appeared to be designed to anger China.
While ties between the US and India have fractured over New Delhi’s relationship with Russia, the close military cooperation continues as the US views India as a useful ally against China. India is a member of the Quad, a group that was revived by the Trump administration that hawks in Washington view as a potential foundation for an anti-China NATO-style alliance in Asia.

Trying to conjure up reality out of thin air much, no?
and that’s why they are now insisting India sanction Russia, let’s go Brandon
So what? Couple US Mercs played pathetically on a rock. They could not even follow a beat.
India is a paper elephant. They are reselling Russian oil to EU at a great margin.
China is doing the same thing too no?
Russia doesn’t mind, they sell their oil at a price they are happy with and India makes some selling to the pedo enabler western eu.
Oh you poor moron, India is not a poor country nor are they “paper elephant”. That is why the US/West have plans for India. India and China are two countries that can stand against Western economies (in future).
Also, this isn’t “news” there were picture and videos of the US army training with Indian army near China-India border from a few years ago.
Gypsies trying to somehow hurt China the Titan. India that 80% people live in state of extreme powerry, doesn’t have access to fresh water, doesn’t have instaled sewerages across the entire country, that 70% of population is illiterate, that doesn’t have pave roads with asphalt, using human feces as fertilozers, have some degenerate diseases infected by some parasitic worms, if a car hit the cow, a guy who was in the car is doomed in prison that concentration camps are kids play, that have toxic mentality to all, and who Idi Amin send to Uk for that reason because they don’t like to work and like to steal from others in stead. Yes, thise are real strategic partners of America.
India should learn from the Ukrainian example that being a useful idiot for USA is very hazardous to your health.
And Germany as well (i.e. Nordstream 2 attack).

Also, seem that India have forgotten that America also gave intel to Wahhabi Satanists to do that carnage in that hotel, back in 2008. Chinese should just shoot the cow in front of them savagery fucks.
India should ally up with Russia, China, Iran, Syria, etc. Don’t get used by the Devil.
Is this trouble at the border just distraction? Both countries are members of BRICS. It also gives the Indian admin some cover as they slip the western yoke off their shoulders whilst the USadmin thinks that India is fighting their bogeyman.
This is old news from when India was still sitting on the fence.
Sometimes such friends are more dangerous than an enemy. Russia should consider who will they consider as “good friends”.
Would be an amazing thing if China and India could come to some settlement and work toward trade and other ties with each other… two huge and powerful nations against the pedo western elitists
USSA would have all humanity believe that the Satanic reptilian host slithering in the Washing town sewer is the all seeing eye, the Gorgon stare that cannot be avoided. This delightful nonsense might fool some backyard Natostan tribes in thrall to the dying angloZionaZi empire of shit but everyone else sees the demented evil beast frantically eating its own tentacles as the entire Slumville edifice collapses in an orgy of fentanyl induced self destruction and corruption on an epic scale never before witnessed in the collapse of such predatory demons.
