    We are docile and mute spectators to China’s aggressive designs and Pakistan’s sinister, belligerent behaviour. China’s open intimidation that it can divide Indian into 20-30 pieces and its brazen call to assist the insurgent regional groups in India to create ‘independent nation states of their own, out of India’, or Pakistan’s 26/11 carnage in the heart of India, have united us and moved us to tears but not to action.

    It is an articulated fact that Pakistan is India’s traditional enemy and China is its permanent enemy. However, for them, India seems to be a meek enemy with resources and capability but without direction and aggression. Pakistan may not call India weak after being beaten in war more than once, but to China, India is a weak and meek enemy.

    The way we ensured the safe passage of the Olympic torch through India prompted a Chinese official to remark, ‘See, how the Indians stand and listen to our orders’. We can attribute these weak Indian posturing to coalition politics, but sadly, it is how we have been defending our inability and submissive behaviour.


    China has been very articulate in its vision of being the sole superpower by 2050. It is not clear whether the country, especially the Army, has studied and evolved tactics from the 1962 loss. If there is an escalation, China may not restrict itself to the northeast. It may open fronts in Tibet and Jammu & Kashmir, as well. In such a scenario, the Navy could only be a mute spectator, unlike a war in the Arabian Sea or in the Bay of Bengal. The Navy doesn’t have the strategic reach to fight in the China Sea but it should at least have the deterrence and offensive capability to nip any attempt in the Indian Ocean. There could well be a situation where India is forced to contain China and deter Pakistan simultaneously. Indian can neither rest its oars, nor Dr. Abdul Kalam’s ‘India 2020’ remain our ‘magnum opus’ till 2020.

    This Indian "think tank" is usually very nationalistic, I wonder why the change of tone??

    Here is the first paragraph of the article:

    Damn Sreeshanth, you deserve to bear all the burden of India's preparation to lose.. That's the reason I always believed he need to tighten up his bowling a bit and maintain his line and length.. Once he is able to pitch the ball in the right areas then I think India will stop worrying about losing. Till then, I must say India is progressively preparing to lose..:agree:

    Exactly. They think allies of India will allow to do so. And US will not keep quite as it doesn't want to tilt the axis of power in favour of communist countries rather than keeping in democratic ones. Also it wont allow extension of china influence on the world. And not to forget our all weather friend Russia.

    Sorry to disappoint you:

    Nehru pleaded for US help against China in 1962 - Times Of India

    India already asked both the USA and the USSR to help them during the 1962.

    In 1962, China was the enemy of BOTH the USA and the USSR. We had just fought the Korean War with the USA, and we just had the Sino-Soviet split with the USSR.

    They were both our enemies back then, but today... we are friends with Russia, and we have the largest bilateral economic relationship in the world with the USA. If they didn't help you back then (when they were our enemies), why would they help you now? :azn:
