    Dear friend,

    We can't choose our neighbors, therefor we have to live with them...
    We have china on east and pak on west...
    Where china has been using pak against India to engage India on that front and at same time developing its own economy, military strength. Where as Pakistan has no other option to rely on china....
    China and pak are both dependent on each other.
    So, if war breaks out how India will take this challenge....
    Is India prepared?
    What should be our military doctrine to deal with this challenge...

    Regards,

    mate you got that completely wrong!China and not pakistan is the greatest threat faced by India at present.pakistan is merely a puppet playing in the hands of their chini commie masters.china is the one behind all the proxy wars that are being carried out against India.the reason why they are supporting all those insurgent groups is due to the fact that china doesn't want India to prosper and march ahead in the path of development as the chinis believe that only India can challenge their hegemony in Asia in the near future.so that's why they have resorted to the age old policy of "making India bleed by a thousand cuts" i.e. funding and helping all the anti-Indian insurgencies so that India can be bogged down fighting them and china in the mean time can move ahead smoothly.
    most of the Indians don't realize the fact that china is the real enemy out there,on the contrary they believe it's pakistan who is causing all the damages to our Motherland!but one must face the ground reality here,pakistan is in no shape to pose a credible threat to the Union of India at the present scenario.on the other hand china is an extremely powerful enemy who is also very shrewd in it's calculative approach to keep India busy in it's own mess by creating more and more internal problems by the each passing day.ISI is merely working on behalf of it's CCP masters but the real brain behind all these is china.
    so it's about time we recognize the real threat faced by our country at the present scenario and utilize our resources more carefully in containing this incoming chinese threat!!

    i agree with mikhail..
    china is primary threat to India. Pakistan is like a monkey who had sword in his hand and can harm wihout thinking of results in return....

    India's long term challenge is China. Pakistan is just a meager pawn in the game which needs occasional whipping to tame it.
    China is developing it's "comprehensive strength" whereas India is busy sorting out "seculars and communals."

    Arun Shourie's research in this topic is informative.

    May be 'divide & rule' formulae can help. Like if our gov bifurcate iaf & ia (not IN) in a certain ratio then we can give two diff targets to two diff country. It will end their common enemy (india) concept, because all the equipment (except indg. products), doctrine & every damn thing will be diff. We can put a "permanent" break in their deeper than pacific frienship/cooperation.
    Am i wrong?? - need views from every senior member! Plz help...

    If USA's economy can't afford such doctrine, what make you think that India can?

    India has more to lose or gain, perhaps. US must project force much further than India does to confront China. So it's a hard question to answer.

    First off, there's a distinct difference between Doctrine and doctrine execution, i.e.: the finer detail within.
    If the americans insist on kobe beef to feed their soldier and other fancy pants BS that may or may not work in battle, you're right, they'd need to borrow all of China's foreign reserve and still can't afford to pull that off.
    OTOH, if India pays attention to core objectives of such a doctrine........... she's more than enough.

    The money spent on US soldiers' cloth or food looks pale comparing to the price of the weapon imported by India.

    You're contradicting your own stand.
    So, is India spending crazy-axs amount of money on weapons or not?
    US is spending money on bling-bling technology, only to realise, a few miles down the road that the efficacy of the said system is highly questionable.
    Raw dakka is what matters, not designer hardware that may or may Not work in the field.
    Yes, India is ridiculously dependant on imports on such defence hardware - for now.
    You disagree that this isn't changing ?:lol::lol:
