    Your argument is a complete non-sequitur to @CCTV. First off, Chinese have the freedom to change their minds just as often as Indians; second, it's debatable whether Indians really do have the freedom to change the pillars of their 'deep state' more than the Chinese do; third, even if true, how does that have anything to do with India being stronger than China from a military or economic perspective?

    Nah, he just doesn't want to admit defeat on a playing field as tilted in his favor as DFI.

    1. lets see if you can get your change of mind in your textbooks on topics like Tiananmen Square. Come back and talk to me once you`ve accomplished that feat !
    2. define "deep state" and what you mean by that in the Indian context. by that logic, the odds of the Chinese hoping for a change in their deep state are better since the unnatural power strcuture and arrangement built by the CCP is not sustainable in the long run,
    3. the context of this thread is the Sri Lankan coast and the IOR in geneal - where India ceratinly has the upper hand militarily. If you want a more general debate lets take this out to the relevant thread and continue there.

    in the IOR & South Asia, yes India does have the upper hand especially in the Naval aspects. and when i say long run i mean 30-50 year horizons at the very least. Have you even tried to imagine or visualize what the Chinese POLITICAL SETUP will look like then ? Do you seriously CCP still around to hold things together ?

    1. If you are the top officer of China do you want to attack India at border or travel 1/3 of the world to attack India from IOR?
    2.india was founded 76 years ago, why you need 30 ,50 years( at least...) more?
