    Although Sino-Indian differences have always existed due to Indian presumption that peace-loving China is its adversary, yet the same has been intensified by the Indian new Army Chief General VK Singh who after taking over the charge on March 30 this year said in his first strategic statement, “Indian Army is well prepared to face any threat from China.” Before him, on December 29, 2009, Indian former Army Chief General Deepak Kapoor openly revealed that Indian Army “is now revising its five-year-old doctrine” and is preparing for a “possible two-front war with China and Pakistan.”

    While India is no match to China in conventional and nuclear weapons, but the statements of its two army chiefs clearly show that Indian rulers are ready to go even to the extent of war against Beijing. That is why India’s war-mongering policy continues against China.

    Notably, in May 1998, when India detonated five nuclear tests, the then Defense Minister George Fernandes had declared publicly that “China is India’s potential threat No. 1.”India which successfully tested missile, Agni-111 in May 2007, has been extending its range to target all the big cities of China.

    As regards Indian new military build up against China, on May 31 last year, after 43 years, New Delhi re-opened its Daulat Beg Oldi (DBO) airbase in northern Ladakh, which overlooks the strategic Karakoram Pass and is only 8 km south of the Chinese border-Aksai Chin area.

    On April 20, 2008, The Times of India had written, “By having a full-fledged airstrip at DBO, India will be able to rush in troops and supplies to the region during emergencies.” The paper quoted Western Air Command chief Air Marshal P K Barbora saying: “Yes, we have also plans to land our AN-32 transport aircraft at DBO. It is part of the Indian Air Force to improve air maintenance of the far-flung posts in the region”.

    India has also erected more than 10 new helipads and roads between the Sino-Indian border. In this connection, Defence Ministry planners are working on building additional airfields and increasing troops—raising two new mountain divisions to be deployed along the 4,057-kilometer Line of Actual Control (LAC). New Delhi has also announced to develop immediately 1,100 kms of strategic roads on the Indo-Tibetan border.

    With the help of Israel and America, on 26 February 2008, India conducted its first test of a nuclear-capable missile from an under sea platform after completing its project in connection with air, land and sea ballistic systems.

    On May 10, 2009, Indian Navy Chief Admiral Sureesh Mehta revealed that New Delhi “will soon float tenders to acquire six submarines”. Mehta also accused Beijing and explained that the “Indian Navy would keep a close watch on the movements of Chinese submarines which are operating out of an underground base in the South China Sea” and “wish to enter the Indian Ocean”. However, under the pretension of Chinese threat, Washington, New Delhi and Israel are plotting to block the sea lanes of the Indian Ocean for their joint strategic goals.

    Besides, New Delhi has itself been planning to destablise, and even to disintegrate China. In this regard, on March 10, 2008 when anti-government violent protests by Buddhist monks erupted in Tibet’s capital, Lhasa including nearby provinces, India, backed the same, though outwardly denied. Dalai Lama, the spiritual leader of Tibet who has lived in exile in India along with his 120,000 followers since a failed revolt against Chinese rule in 1959 has been tacitly encouraged by New Delhi—enabling him to mobilize armed groups and international support to create instability in the neighboring provinces of China. For this purpose, India has clandestinely established secret camps where Dalai Lama’s militants are being imparted armed training. In this respect, Indian RAW has sent a number of agents who have joined the ranks and files of the Tibetan insurgents of China, and they create unrest from time to time.

    India shows that despite Sino-Indian border dispute, she does not favour an independence of Tibet. But Indian stand is indirectly expressed by its leaders and media. For example, the former foreign minister Yashwant Sinha had said, “We want good relations with China, but if we reach a point of conflict over Tibet, we should be prepared for that eventuality.”

    The state-run China Daily, on July 27, 2006, denounced the Lama as a “splittist” and pointed out that he has “collaborated with the Indian military and American CIA to organise Indian Tibetan special border troops to fight their way back into Tibet.”

    It is notable that in order to conceal its covert activities, India has always blamed China for backing Maoist uprising. In this context, instead of addressing the root causes of the Maoist uprising, Indian government has recently intensified its blame game against China, alleging for supplying arms to these insurgents. In fact, Maoist movement which has been raging in West Bengal, has now expanded to Indian other regions including Maharashtra. At present, it is a popular insurgency by the downtrodden who have massive support of people for their ideology.

    In this context, on October 31 last year, The New York Times wrote, “India’s Maoist rebels are now present in 20 states and have killed more than 900 Indian security officers…India’s rapid economic growth has made it an emerging global power but also deepened stark inequalities in society.” Nevertheless, instead of paying attention on these ground realties, New Delhi has started a hot pursuit policy towards Beijing.

    America which signed a nuclear deal with India in 2008, intends to make India a mini-super power of Asia by containing China and destablising Pakistan as well as Iran. Pakistan’s province, Balochistan where China has invested billion of dollars to develop Gwadar seaport irritates both Washington and New Delhi.

    However, Beijing and Islamabad cannot neglect their common defence when their adversaries are following a covert strategy. In this connection, Pakistan’s President Asif Ali Zardari had decided to visit China after every three months to further cement ties between both the old friends. Both the countries have signed a number of agreements to enhance bilateral cooperation in diverse sectors. So Sino-Indian rift is also part of the greater cold war between the US and China. Besides, Indian reservations regarding China’s infrastructural projects in Azad Kashmir are unjustified and discriminative.

    India which has openly signed a number of mutual agreements with China, calling the latter a strategic partner, has been playing a double game with Beijing by acting upon the war-mongering policy against China.

    Wow...someone truly took a lot of pain just to bash India. So in hounour of this brilliant masterpeice, here are some points.

    (1) India defense policy is of defensive nature with respect to China. Every Indian understands it.

    (2) As for developing/improving boder infrastructure, India is just trying to maintain a minimum balance. China is ahead in this area.

    (3) I am sure we have some credible links for this.

    "With the help of Israel and America, on 26 February 2008, India conducted its first test of a nuclear-capable missile from an under sea platform after completing its project in connection with air, land and sea ballistic systems."

    (4) How can India plan to disintegrate China which is bigger in terms of population, economy, resources, military etc. We are not living in fool's world. India does not have any sort of martial race theory. :lol:

    (5) India has already recognized Tibet as a part of China. Let me know if you need a link for this.

    (6) Article suggest USA is using India to counter Chinese influence. This in fact, is not believed by China even.

    (7) I would like to see the logic behind this.

    India which has openly signed a number of mutual agreements with China, calling the latter a strategic partner, has been playing a double game with Beijing by acting upon the war-mongering policy against China.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Both India and China are mature nations. They are acting very cautiously. There would be an India's event in China and vice-versa. China is biggest trading partner of India. Both are doing very well in some areas like climate control. Yet every now & then comes up with such "analysis" which could be terms as nonsense by all logic.

    hmmm... a poll by times of india, the title really should be "world's most popular leaders -- by Indians".

    With no intention of offending your feelings, just the wording of the poll itself is too pompous and boastful for a sensible reader's taste irrespective of their political/world views.

    The poll was not counducted by India or Indian agencies. While I agree that it is done in only six nations and that too not friendly to China. However India is nowhere a party to blame.

    If you are so full of hatred towards India, please have foreign news links.

    Wow read my previous post, how did you deduce that I'm full of hatred?

    Although I do admit I didn't bother reading the news but just saw the link to the article -- by times of india. I still stand by my original statement though -- "the wording of the poll itself is too pompous and boastful for a sensible reader's taste irrespective of their political/world views."

    I have nothing against Indians, but it's definitely not a peace-loving nation. I remember Indian ICBM researchers publicly declaring that their missiles can "reach most of China's northern cities" and their chief general saying, "Indian Army is well prepared to face any threat from China." It seems Communist China is a threat to world security no matter what they do, while India is peace-loving regardless of what their high military officials say.

    This is because we have to make our policies with China in mind as well. I have heard Chinese talking of their missiles being able to hit Washington or New York. Does it mean Chinese are war mongers looking to nuke USA? Of course not!

    Till the induction of our IRBM, most of China was beyond our reach. So basically, China had the 'nuclear advantage', a position where they could blow us to oblivion without endangering much of China. But with Agni III that changed.

    And it changed for the good. And I emphasise this, because now neither can afford escalated war. India has never considered nukes as an offensive weapon, only as a deterrent against a nuclear attack on us. So basically, citizens of both countries are safer. Just like Russian and American ICBMs kept cold war from heating up.

    Let me repeat, Indian missiles are there for only one reason: to prevent war. You wont find Indians wanting to nuke china or saying crap like, "they have more to lose, so lets nuke em. Doesn't matter if we die."

    And I'm sure you would agree that Chinese missiles are there to prevent war as well. Our nuclear policies are similar. India and China both have a no first use policy.

    The rest of the world can take a lesson from India and China.

    disintegrate china !!!!

    you kidding me? on what basis will china be split?

    china is almost a monolithic entity. almost the entire population is han. there is very little variety in language or religion. the entire country follows the same political ideology.

    there is absolutely nothing which can form a basis for splitting china, specially after tibet has been accepted as a part of china by the GoI
