Downside of the move in my opinion is we will see a decline in our relationship with Russia who won't trust us and our access to top of the line Russian weapons will be permanently shut down.... Russia won't entertain and trust us under USA military presence....

Another downside USA after seeing our relationship sour with Russians will be more dominating as they know that now we will have to depend on them to large extent in the absence of Russia.....

Then again if there is a war between USA and China over Taiwan and if USA wants to attack China from western borders using Indian bases we won't be able to say NO..... by keeping military in India If they are guaranting our security in case of China Pakistan attack then we too can't say no if they want to use our bases in Taiwan war.... This will be the price we will have to pay.... These are all downsides and there will be many more.....
But many US allies are paying this price and living life peacefully without a fear..... Then why not India......
You are right about Russian angle which is least of concern once you start getting top US weapon systems. However, if you see India's presence, you are surrounded by China and Pakistan and then there is Iran. All of these countries will not like US presence in South Asia means they will increase problems of asymetrical war against India. Also a base in India means US soldiers under the shadow of nukes.

The reason India never allowed US military bases on it's soil is due to its ego which want to be seen as a superpower,and that ego will not allow India to let US have any military base on its soil,no matter the gain or loss.
Downside of the move in my opinion is we will see a decline in our relationship with Russia who won't trust us and our access to top of the line Russian weapons will be permanently shut down.... Russia won't entertain and trust us under USA military presence....

Best thing is with US military presence in India we can reduce our already very small defence spending further and divert the money towards development and well being of the people.....

And yes USA 7th fleet base on Andaman and Nicobar islands...... What a deterrence if China plans anything in Indian Ocean..... QUAD has started taking shape already....
Atleast there are some Indians that realize India is not at all in a position to take on China,it will likely be a spectacular mow down,so that's a plus point.

But,the loss incurred from an US military base far outweighs the gain;

1. China didn't treat India as its nemesis,just an unfortunate neighbor they had to deal with. But with such a move India would have laid itself bare before China as the strategic enemy and just an extension of US imperialism that CN had to take down,and that's not a good position to hold before the future superpower that will have 3-4 times the economy of the USA.

2.India would have send the signal to the world that it have folded before Chinese might( not that anyone believe there was even a comparison other than population size) but still, it's a win for China ,they will take India even less seriously and teat it in a more insolent manner.In reality,US is no deterrence for China against any punitive actions on India,for when it feels their core interest is threatened, ,they already went to war with the US ,twice and China got what it seeked in both occation.

3. Regardless of all the Quad Quad debacle,India needs China for its industries and development,India has to rely on Chinese supply chain be it in Asia or Africa .India can't seriously launder billions from China led AIIB while waging a cold war against China in concert with the US either. Indians should realize one thing ,US isn't funding India's development, Infrastructure or serious high-tech Industry,that's not how US rolls.US might aid the call centre sector and such but that's it.

4. India is US's one of the main competitor (at least in gdp,due to its seer size) in future , after China had taken the unchallenged pole position in the economic sphere ,US knows that very well,hence the US will try to take over India( like in Latin America) before that .
US military base is not something simple as black & white;it's a pandora box that brings with it a plethora of issues. Indian media,corporates,thinktank etc, has already been co-opted by US agents ,they have great sway on Indian elections.But with a resident US military ,India would be run amock by regime change expert CIA ,India would have been again re-colonized by the West.India isn't capable and sophisticated enough to deal with a cia's infiltration techniques,and India can do nothing about it while being so reliant on US after making China as their enemy in the follow up process.
So gradually ,India would get hijacked by the US like Australia,but at a more severe lvl,and the nation will start to play deputy sheriff on behalf of the US at the expense of their own gain,just like Australia,India would then recede to real 3rd world status, probably balkanized thereafter.

The Americans plan to send millions of Indian men to their deaths fighting China. Covid is their plan to desensitize the Indian public to millions of Indian deaths over a fairly short period of time. Without desensitization, Indian public would not support Modi sending millions of Indian men to their deaths fighting China.

I can understand China and Pakistan concern but why USA bases in India will bother Iran?? They are facing US military presence in Saudi, Kuwait, bahrein, US Navy in gulf since so many years bases in India will be hardly of their concern....

About US soldiers coming under the shadow of Nukes then trust me USA is always under the shadow of Nukes by China over Taiwan issue (China has it's own doctrine/ strategy to nuke US bases in Pacific and even mainland if required) and by North Korea..... But it makes no difference to USA.....

Nuking US bases is no joke..... USA does have second and even third strike ability and China knows the disaster it will bring..... You have to be even dumber than Saddam Hussein or Hitler to challenge USA for a nuclear war....

Xi looks smart..... Sense always prevail over sane minds.....

The OP source is rubbish. USA is hesitant to expand its footprint especially into India. It doesn't want to get sucked into regional conflicts it can not resolve nor does it want more security dependents (Europe and Japan are enough). India's utility is to become new front that can soak up Chinese munitions diverting attention from the Pacific. Indians are clueless. :lol:

I fully support US bases in India..... We are a QUAD country but militarily and economically we are the weakest country in QUAD.....

If we can offer bases to USA UK against China to help them design their offensive strategy and doctrine from western borders of China then it will be a great contribution from our side.....

We will have following advantages....

1) USA can bring India under it's ballistic missile defence shield.....

2) If we allow them bases then we don't have to worry about China or Pakistan military threat as US army in India is a best deterrence factor....

3) We can reduce defence spending and have a breathing space to bring our economy back on track which has suffered these 2 years by covid situation....

4) Not only mainland India but we should allow a naval base in Andaman Islands and lakshdweep Islands for entire QUAD which will be a huge threat to China trade lines in Malacca and sunda or even to connect to gwadar via sea lines in case if there is a full scale war with China.....

There are many other advantages....

After all which country will dare to knock your door when you have USA sitting outside to protect you.....
This is what happens when you have low IQ. You are free to leave India if you want but don't blabber nonsense
I have read somewhere that India is planning to turn Andaman islands into a massive Air and naval base.

i Believe they are discussing with USA to have both indian & USA warships and bombers based there ,

The islands are right near malacca straights ..........IT would block 80% of china .s Trade

Imagine a USA carrier and dozen destroyers od 50 usa bombers based there.

In return India gets massive investment on USA tech and hardware

win win for all
Luckily India is not as retarded as you are. Indian navy is stronger than what USA can mobilise in IOR. Indian Su30 is way better than USA bombers. None of your words make any sense. India does not buy any major hardware from USA but only wants technology for advanced things like semiconductor, jet engines etc which USA won't give. What is the whole point of your blabbering?

Neither does India treat China as an enemy. Current hostility is not very serious but only an indicator of the geopolitics where China has started to support the Islamic block for its oil and that has caused some problems to others.
.India would have send the signal to the world that it have folded before Chinese might( not that anyone believe there was even a comparison other than population size) but still, it's a win for China ,they will take India even less seriously and teat it in a more insolent manner.In reality,US is no deterrence for China against any punitive actions on India,for when it feels their core interest is threatened, ,they already went to war with the US ,twice and China got what it seeked in both occation.
India can hold off China well. War is not some movie. India has all the logistics it needs to fight a war of attrition. But as I said above India does not see China as an enemy. Only low IQ Indians with little in their brains see that way. There is no civilisational enmity with China that Indian people would arbitrarily want to kill Chinese. So, where is the enmity about? Some news articles? People who fight on the basis of hearsays and third party news without understanding the issue are mostly low IQ people who will not be heard by anyone else
Regardless of all the Quad Quad debacle,India needs China for its industries and development,India has to rely on Chinese supply chain be it in Asia or Africa .India can't seriously launder billions from China led AIIB while waging a cold war against China in concert with the US either.

India considers China to be better than USA. It is just the current stance of taking support from islamic states for their oil that is irritating India.

India is US's one of the main competitor (at least in gdp,due to its seer size) in future , after China had taken the unchallenged pole position in the economic sphere ,US knows that very well,hence the US will try to take over India( like in Latin America) before that .

India will not let USA have a base and USA will not let India has a base. Keeping a military base will mean that India will also have to allow huge number of US agents and companies space in India which will be unacceptable to say the least. It will be similar to selling the country to USA. Moreover, USA base has no advantage to India as India has its own military which is strong to fight its wars. USA base will only be a burden

LOL... A US base could probably protect you from a smalll to medium size attacker but not China with its massive number of missiles. In fact, a US base is an invitation to Chinese missiles in a war that's not even yours to begin with.
