Re: Agni 6 ICBM Putin has not shown a particular regard for international treaties and sanctions till now, as long as the Chinese believe that the test was Russian. Moscow is assured of Chinese support, we can do lip service to the west while not really applying any sanctions.The Russian economy would still have access to the two largest markets in the world. The U.S has almost as much to lose from renewed testing as the Russians, both of them are in financial dire straits. On the other hand a vela incident type event with Indian military observers and vessels shall be near impossible to hide. Like I said before the only reason the Israelis succeeded was because the brits and yanks wanted them to.
