China, India Exchange Fire for First Time in 45 YearsBoth sides trade blame for latest clash

Tensions between China and India are reaching a multi-decade worst today, as troops on both sides exchanged fire along the disputed border at Kashmir. Both sides are blaming the other for provocations, and said they fired “warning shots.”

There was fighting along the border back in mid-June, with troops on both sides using metal bats to beat one another to death, and officials proudly assuring that there was no gunfire. Today’s gunfire is the first confirmed shots fired since 1975.

Both nations massed troops at the Line of Actual Control (LAC) back in June, and seemingly were waiting for an excuse to start fighting. Both sides are saying the other started this, with Chinese officials saying Indian troops “blatantly fired” on the border patrol, and India saying Chinese troops fired first to intimidate them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, this could get nasty in a heartbeat, if sane international efforts are not made toward reducing the tensions here, and getting both sides back to the negotiating tables; both countries are nuclear-armed.
