Indians could indeed attack in an ill conceived war just as racial supremacist ideology motivated Nazi Germany to undertake an unwinnable war against the UK and Soviet Union.Chinese assessment is completely out of this world. India can never attack even if China retakes hundreds of 1000 sq kms blocks. There is no option to start a civilian revolt as the conflict zone is an empty land. Indian politicians don't go to war unless more than one of the following are true: (1) they are able to buy local civilian support in the enemy territory, (2) the Indian army strength is several times larger in numbers, (3) conflict zone is cut off with the mainland of enemy.. not just cut off, but there should be a distance of 100s if not thousands of kilometers and Indians are sitting in between two parts (4) there are no civilians available to use as human shield.
Not saying anything against IA as it might be a professional force, but Indian politicians only act when they have full confidence of 200% win as no Indian government wants to lose next elections.
So... no.. Indian is not attacking. If anything has to happen, it will happen from Chinese side.. But then again, China is not there for war. It is there to stretch the Indian forces across thousands of kilometers..
Nazi Germany had an economy 1/2 the size of the Soviets alone, never mind UK as well. But they believed that they were racially superior and the Soviets were unmotivated despite their larger economy and military.
Similar arguments are being advanced by Indians on this very forum: Chinese PLA is weak and unmotivated despite being larger, Indians are the superior master race.
