Chinese propaganda about a possible fight with India ramps up..

"Chinese border forces have high combat capability".  Burn that into your brain cells.  China won't lose face over this incident.  India won't lose face.  I know without a doubt that the Indian Army has a HIGH martial spirit and will find it difficult to de-escalate and perhaps even more worrisome is the fact that the Indian people are equally determined.

I've tried to wrap my brains around what the coronavirus has done to US society and a connection between the lockdowns and the recent unrest (to include the reaction/counter reaction of law enforcement as far back as the arrest of shop owners that opened up early in Texas to the Floyd incident) but I hadn't considered the virus' ramifications on international relations.

Internal problems?  External boogeyman.  Could this be as simple as China needs a distraction?
