So, this Indian writer feels China will win. Will it? That is the million dollar question. One wonders if China will win given that, this time around China has not been allowed to participate in the RIMPAC exercise and has been badly snubbed losing face. If China has not been invited, Russia has been and it is participating first time with four ships. Is the reinforcing an united front against China, given that all those who are participating aren't quite in love with China, to include Russia. IS something brewing?
