外文标题：'Opposing forces' defeat China's PLA in war drill
BEIJING: China's formidable People's Liberation Army (PLA) had some bitter lessons from a recent war drill, where they were defeated in six out of seven battles by an "opposing force," a media report said on Sunday.
The drills pitted for the first time PLA's 'red' teams from seven military area commands against the 'blue' team, or the "opposing force", playing the enemy, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.
The country's first permanent professional "opposing force", an infantry brigade from Beijing Military Area Command, was the rival during the exercise which ended on Monday, a report in Sunday's People's Daily said.
Before the exercise commenced, no one was sure about the outcome, it said.
In the end, however, the blue team won six out of seven battles, defeating every area command except Shenyang, Xinhua said.
Chinese army = Hugh numbers but no experience
Hope we also learn such good things from them.
To win a WAR, lot of good qualities are requires and arrogance spoils all good qualities.
They may have lost the wars against their blue team but one thing you can be sure of is that the PLA can kick your Indian a--e. big time

Very encouraging for India and Japan. The two arch enemies of China.

How? If you read between the lines, one Chinese army was defeated by "the enemy" which was another Chinese army.

India & Japan: Two running-poodles of U.S. imperialism.

It is imperative that we too have such drills with China to improve ties between the two countries. I see a lot of people on this forum commenting ill about China and boasting of Indian supremacy. My contention is when we can make friends, why breed enemies ??? Use your brain and not your muscle.....

the more they drill and get defeated the more they spend giving less to their poor ppl
Morgan (Australia) replies to G Pradeep
Every nation conducts military exercises at varying levels, India is no exception to this. If the number of poor people determined how often a nation should spend money on the military, India's case would almost be to not have a military at all.
PLA are very pretty, but can they fight?
