Sooner or later this schoolyard posturing is going to lead to punches thrown.

How about iron bars and rocks instead of punches?

"A source in New Delhi, who had been briefed on the military situation on the border, said soldiers foiled a bid by a group of Chinese troops to enter Indian territory in Ladakh, near the Pangong lake.

Some of the Chinese soldiers carried iron rods and stones, and in the melee there were minor injuries on both sides, the source said."

I am cool with them throwing rocks at each other. When the rocks are lead and propelled from a tube it isn't cool any more. Those two can't go to real war. It would take over the half the population of the planet with them.
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be rememberèd—
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother

Looks like a sale in the WalMart parking lot or a Monty Python video
