India Seeks Rapid Purchase Of 33 Russian Fighter Jets In Response To Chinese Border Fight

India is reportedly seeking to beef up military purchases from Russia following last week's major border incident with China that resulted in 20 Indian Army troops killed, and an undisclosed number of Chinese PLA casualties in the disputed Galwan Valley area of East Ladakh.

Indian government sources were cited in New Delhi-based ANI News Agency as saying "the Indian Air Force (IAF) has pushed a proposal to the government for acquiring 33 new fighter aircraft, including 21 MiG-29s and 12 Su-30MKIs from Russia."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Two nuclear-armed neighbors, at each others' throats, does not augur well for peace, either in the region, or in the world; I am hoping - and praying - that SOMEONE, hopefully, an "adult in the room" with some geopolitical integrity left (that sure as HELL leaves out President Trump), is working the phones intensely between New Dehli and Beijing, to ratchet the tensions down here, and encouraging the leadership of both countries to enact some confidence-building measures here.
