Rumors of War - Kings of the East

China deploys new tank in Tibet, near India border -
UPI reports: "China deployed its latest military tank, the Xinqingtan, in an area of Tibet near the Indian border. Chinese news site Guancha reported Monday Beijing is increasing military buildup in Tibet in a show of force designed to deter the Indian military. [...] The deployment of the tanks expands the Tibet-based unit and has increased their fighting power, the news site reported."

Comment: I think we should take note of any indication of increasing military tensions between the two most populous countries on Earth with a long history of wars and border conflicts, countries that also happen to be nuclear powers.
