In this thread I want to discuss, Deterrence how do we define it for India? Deterrence against China and Pakistan. How the Deterrence is different for both?Deterrence in an offensive sense Nuclear weapons as one example or nuclear submarines,missiles etc... how much is enough??Deterrence by land,air and sea Have we come close to completing our deterrence goals? what is missing? Long ranger Bombers, ICBM?? greater missile numbers?? Missile ranges?? Deterrence in an defensive sense BMD being one example. Deterrence as a focus of policy issues especially with a no first use policy and Deterrence in the face of widespread nuclear and missile proliferation in our part of the world. What is deterrence for India in your opinion how do you define it? Include weapons,policy, alliances, security pacts,arms purchases,joint collaborations etc... whatever you think is relevant in your definition of Indian deterrence.
