Because of China’s policy of peaceful diplomacy, China has always given priority to modesty and peace talks rather than war.It also gives India the illusion that China is easy to bully. In the attitude of China-India border, India is more and more arrogant, and even thinks that it is the first in Asia!Even in 1962 War with China, India can make a story out of a horrible defeat of Indian army!They did not understand at all that during the Sino-Indian war, they were just a gun of the United States, not the only gun. The United States did not place all its hopes on India, but also tried to encourage Chiang Kai-shek in Taiwan to take the opportunity to counterattack the mainland.But Chiang kai-shek thought further than India and was not bewitched by America.But why didn’t Chiang respond to the American proposal when it had always been Chiang’s lifelong ambition to counterattack the mainland?Today, let the old Yan take you to understand, behind the arrogance of India, what is supporting him?How did the United States encourage Chiang Kai-shek to attack the mainland?What was Chiang kai-shek’s reply?Before and after the founding of the People’s Republic of China, it could be said that China had beaten half of the European countries and four and a half of the UN Permanent Five.No one knows from which war India saw That China was easy to bully!India is frantically and blindly expanding its military power.While all countries are reducing their forces, only India continues to expand its forces and buy weapons from the US, France, Britain, Italy and other countries to form a “super-strong” modern army.”If China does not withdraw from Indian territory and return to the Line of Actual Control, India should go to war with China,” one of the country’s ruling generals said in a public statement.But the reality is, in mainly for India, China killed more than 722, 697 people injured, while India killed 4897 people, captured 3968 people, this can be accurate to single-digit battle, for China’s civil war for many years, the number on the line no, the only difference is that the China is India, or in this victory gesture.But India just can’t see reality and is enjoying its boast, proudly saying, “India is not what it was in 1962!”India has always been self-righteous and has never taken advantage of China’s border issues, whether it was the 1962 counterattack against Vietnam or the recent border conflict between China and India.India, however, insists that it is a way to deflect domestic tensions.But India may not know that it has already built a large airfield in the Plateau area, with more than 60 hangars alone, and the H-6K has been continuously conducting strategic patrols along the border. With the RANGE and strength of the H-6K, it is still possible to bombard New Delhi.The US media satirized India in front of the screen. In the 1962 Sino-Indian War, India abruptly turned the war of aggression into a “war of Defense of New Delhi”. It made people laugh their heads off!In the 1950s, when Britain was colonizing India, it had its eye on China. It carried out an expansionist policy in India and was “borderless” towards China, in an attempt to provoke territorial disputes between China and India. In fact, Britain did succeed.The “McMahon Line” was the main contradiction left by Britain to China and India.The “McMahon Line” was drawn privately by the British and covers an area of more than 90,000 square meters between it and the traditional Tibetan and Indian borders.Beginning in 1951, the Indian army crossed the traditional demarcation line between Tibet and India and advanced northwestward, occupying mani, Shangza and Baris to the north of the “McMahon Line”.At that time, China was in the war of Resistance against Japan, and there was no time to talk to them. Unrestrained India was getting more and more unbridled.In 1959, the people’s Liberation Army entered Tibet, which shattered Nehru’s dream of establishing a “buffer state” in China’s Tibet.The Indian government has openly proposed to China to divide 3.2 square kilometers of Chinese territory in the western section of the eastern section, which is over 90,000 square kilometers.After Nehru’s unreasonable demands were rejected by China, India started to make trouble along the Sino-Indian border. When the Korean War was on the verge of breaking out, China once again showed forbearance, but India went even further and saw China’s restraint as weakness.But one thing we must be clear about is, as a newly colonized country, why is India so brave?It has to be the driving force behind India, USA.Chairman MAO once commented bluntly on the Sino-Indian war: “It is a political war!”As a country that had been bullied by Europe, all European countries were afraid of China’s growth, especially the United States. In order to strangle the new China in its cradle, the United States repeatedly tried to wipe out the Communist regime of China.During the Anti-Japanese War, in order to curb the communist Party’s power, the United States funded the Kuomintang Chiang Kai-shek clique.When New China was founded, the United States bombed the Yalu River in China under the pretext of helping Korea.In 1962, a year before the china-India war broke out, US President John F. Kennedy had hinted to Nehru that the task of containing the Communist Party in Asia is yours and the US has your strong backing!The US is not only verbally sowing discord in Asia, but also offering Economic and military aid to India, which has become the strength for India to send troops to the Chinese border.On the one hand, the United States imposed a comprehensive blockade on China, on the other hand, the eyes of the neighboring small countries, China is under siege on all sides, both inside and outside the country are going particularly hard.So China has been avoiding war since 1954, there have been countless talks and meetings between China and India, India is still going to try to directly engage China in military confrontation.On September 20, 1962, the Indian army, no longer satisfied with the McMahon Line, launched an attack on the Chinese border troops in both the eastern and western sections of the China-India boundary with a force of more than 21,600 troops in 10 brigades.There is an old saying in China, “The last straw is no longer necessary”. China will not back down!On October 18, 1962, Chairman MAO called a meeting at Zhongnanhai and said, “If India wants to fight, we will fight and beat India into submission.”Chairman MAO’s determination to wage war was not an act of passion.Just three days earlier, the World had been shocked by the Cuban missile crisis in the Caribbean, when the United States and the Soviet Union hovered at the “nuclear button” and became the closest mankind has ever come to the brink of destruction.At that time, China’s relations with the US and the Soviet Union were not good, and it was difficult for China to intervene. Instead, it took advantage of the quarrel between the US and the Soviet Union to deal with India first.The Chinese People’s Liberation Army launched a counterattack on the 20th. On the first day, it recaptured The Areas such as Kjaelang and Tawang, and defeated the Indian army one after another. The United States also lamented its failure to live up to its ambition.But this was also expected by the United States, so the United States not only instigated India, but also encouraged Chiang Kai-shek in Taiwan to take the opportunity to attack the mainland.But to America’s surprise, Chiang Kai-shek’s side turned down America’s warm invitation to “share” China!Is Chiang Kai-shek not moved by China’s internal and external troubles?Isn’t this the perfect time for him to attack the mainland?This is no doubt a good time for Taiwan forces to counterattack, but also a good time for the United States to split China!For Chiang Kai-shek, the dictator, I want to take Away China, but others want to take a piece of the pie from him, it is impossible, so when facing the lobbying of the American representatives, Chiang Kai-shek answered them like this!The United States urged Chiang Kai-shek to counterattack the mainland, but was refused?During the Sino-Indian War, the United States was at a loss due to the Cuban missile crisis, President Kennedy sent Pacific Commander Felt to Chiang Kai-shek’s residence in Taiwan to lobby Chiang Kai-shek, and said that this was the best time to counterattack the mainland, if Chiang Kai-shek’s reason, the United States will provide them with military aid and materials.Felt, from his lofty position, thought Chiang would be moved to say yes, and the United States would gain from it and divide Chinese territory.Unexpectedly, Chiang kai-shek replied, “I have been thinking of recovering the mainland, but this war concerns the territorial integrity of the mainland. I will take advantage of the danger of others. Even if I fight back, THE whole Of China will despise me.Felt had not expected this answer. He had not expected Chiang kai-shek to be so nationalistic, and at the time of his coup d ‘etat, to care so much about his reputation.Suddenly he was lofty again.Felt was puzzled, but could not persuade Chiang kai-shek. Chiang would not attack the mainland at this time in any case. Felt left in disgrace!Felt could not understand Chiang kai-shek’s temperament, but his men understood that fear of territorial integrity was not the only reason for Chiang kai-shek not to attack the mainland.Chiang Kai-shek had admitted that in the early years of the new China, he had planned to counterattack the mainland at all times, but the mainland had a force of six million at that time, and less than one-tenth of the People’s Liberation Army was present in the counterattack against India.At this point, there is little chance that he can fight back to the mainland. On the contrary, he will disturb the mainland in defending The Territory of Tibet.Chiang Kai-shek also had his own obsession with China’s territorial integrity. This is not blind speculation, but traces can be found.In January 1974, a year before Chiang kai-shek’s death, Vietnam invaded the Paracel Islands and was subsequently taught a lesson by the Chinese People’s Navy. After the Paracel sea battle, Vietnam intended to retaliate by preparing for land, sea and air, and also requested naval support from the United States.The Chinese navy must go south as soon as possible to support the South Sea fleet.In normal times, Chinese naval vessels sail around the Taiwan Strait from the East China Sea to the South China Sea to prevent disputes.But this time, Chairman MAO ordered Chinese naval vessels to pass directly through the Taiwan Strait!The three frigates, Kunming, Chengdu and Hengyang, lived in great fear, not because they were afraid of a maritime dispute with Taiwan, but because they were afraid that their southward support would be blocked.But strangely enough, when the Chinese navy ships passed through the route of the Taiwan Strait, the KUOMINTANG warships on patrol retreated to the waters east of the middle line of the Taiwan Strait, as if to make way for the Chinese navy to move south!Chiang kai-shek died after the naval battle of the Paracel Islands in self-defense against India, but India was still bitter about the 1962 “Battle of New Delhi” and repeatedly cited the border between China and Vietnam, claiming that China had invaded their territory and wanted to teach China a lesson.However, judging from the results of years of border conflicts between Vietnam and China, it is very difficult for India to teach China a lesson.
