As the title says, that is indeed my suggestion and i wonder whay it has not been employed so far .....CH has always in the past been worrying india ....i think it is time to do the oppposite ..... india in fact has the trup scare card .....how ? simple ...in any outrigh conflict , given sufficient quantity of MISSILES and Nuke WARHEADS, ( my reason for posting on the missle part of this forum ) China ( SHANGhai ) is more developed has FAR more to lose . So wqhile the esteemed outgoing naveal chief had stated chi is nmore , oh sorry far more developed than IN , the corollary is that it also has more , ooops soory far more to lose. of course it requires some guts form the top people and apart from HE chidambaram , sometimes thats hard to find , especially wehen some of them are actually using taxpayers money to build statues unto themselves !!
