Chinese marines’ desert operations point to long-range ambitions
BEIJING: Days after China passed a new law that for the first time permits its military to venture overseas on counter-terror operations, its marines began exercises in the western deserts of Xinjiang, more than 2,000 kilometres from the nearest ocean.
The continuing drills are an indication, analysts say, that the marines, who have traditionally trained for amphibious assault missions, are being honed into an elite force capable of deploying on land far from mainland China.
India should prepare itself

China economy is sinking. All of its friends are failed states. No country relies on China.
China is super power
Chinese training in desert will help in evacuating Chinese people trapped in war zone area as well as to protect Chinese assets internationally.
Will China join fight against terror
We have the 4th largest army but yet we dont have quality made bullet proof armour and error induced thermal scan cams and outdated klashinkov rifles. All we do is import stuff and build an army that cant predict whats happening next. All they do is blame what the gov has provided and yeah its true
India is comparable to Nigeria or Zimbabwe as China which is first class in all matters is 100 times superior
China is preparing herself as one of the top powerful nation economically and militarily. Their ambition is very clear from land to sky missile technology and other military advancements in last one decade!
it would be fun to see a war between india and china
