Re: This chart shows how China,India,and Japan are competing to develo USA is pulling the strings from behind, any regional block that comes up with out China will have firm USA support. The building of islands and Chinese outrageous claims will definitely help USA, to exploit and establish a strong presence in Asia. India, Japan, Australia and USA have some strategic interests as well as strong trade relations with China. But looking at the history of USA, they won't give away their domination in Asia to a rising power, that too a communist regime. India is expected to operate 4 carrier groups by 2030 and we are planning to build 2 huge nuclear powered Carriers. India already has INS Vikramaditya and one carrier is being constructed and will be operational by 2020. Apart from that there is talk about helicopter carriers and Nuke submarines. India is also strengthening its Island defences after the incident involving chinese nuke sub docking at srilankan port. So India can counter china in S.Asia and IOR regions close to India. India is aiming at minimum credible deterrent against China since we are in the phase of economic development and building the nation.
