    Brig Subash Kapila was my instructor in the DSSC.

    China keeps escalating her defence budget annually and claims that it is for peaceful rise and if India buys armament for legitimate defence needs it sends shivers around China and its media goes ballistics!

    Under no circumstances China is a nation that believes in peaceful coexistence. She is perpetually furthering her hegemonic dreams and continuously keeps the borders around her 'active' trotting historical imaginations to 'justify' her aims. Totally poppycoc.k is her claims as is being repeatedly proved. Starting with the occupation of Tibet and starting wars as with India and Vietnam, she is pursuing an armed confrontationist approach in the South China Seas, Unfortunately for China, in the SCS, the US has ensured that China slinks back into her shell!

    There is no doubt that India should be wary of China and her propensity to befool with pious platitudes and homilies. The US has tried to befriend China and even assisted her in her quest for military and technological prowess. It has boomeranged as the US now realises. China is a double faced chameleon and of that there is no doubt. India should never forget how that silly 'Bandug Spirit' and Panchsheel proved to be India's Waterloo in 1962.

    We cannot take another chance. Once bitten, twice shy is a very good adage that one should always remember.

    Notwithstanding the Defence Minister's assertions, China continues to be a threat and China's unending militarisation is indeed fraught with danger for India as also for the Asia Pacific Rim nations.

    The Indian Govt should quit being Nehru and embrace the world with love to finally be let down. India should be wake up to the reality and take measures to ensure that China does not entrap us once again with false piety and fraudulent mish mash of peace and such insincere claptrap!

    The way we are going, we probably won't even be a match for Phillipines.
    Look at the way the rupee depreciated by 20% in 4 months. That pushes up the cost of the Rafael deal by the same amount.

    When this shit called DRDO can't even make ammunition for a tank, why are we even competing with China. If they choose to attack, we are screwed.
    Let's face facts, we are in deep shit.

    I was actually fishing for a more detailed analysis from those who observe the strategic issues on the forum.

    Still not getting over that that silly 'Bandung Spirit' and Panchsheel, and India's Waterloo in 1962?

    Good, there's always Nehru Indians can always blame for all the woes. Economically many posters have vomit enough over Nehruvian Socialism. And now Nehru is brought up again for "defence" and "China threat"?? But, hey wait, Nehru was dead probably 40+ years ago. He's not gonna be held accountable for many things that happened since then.

    Every cloud has a silver lining. China threat gives justifications to India for more military budget
    But don't blame Nehru again, for not having an economy of the same size as China, even though in 1962 India was far better off in many ways.

    Yes Bandung is always important to remember.

    How can anyone forget the treachery?

    EVen then, much pious platitue emanated from China.

    India thought China was friend.

    And then.................................backstab.

    Have you forgotten how China reacts when Japanese leaders go and give their homage at the Shinto shrine?

    All because the Japanese conquered a large part of China and gave China a hard time?

    Look within before you spout the same old Chinese mealy mouthed pious platiude and plebeian homilies!

    What the great Sardar Patel foresaw in 1950, is still not clear to the political class in India.
