    India US Relations

    I think its a bit more detailed than just trying to carve some breathing space. It seems our grand strategic thinking is that we can provide a non-imperial alternative to USA, in that we can provide an alternative to the American "rules based global order". India is arguing for multipolarity and...

    Once (assuming if) they are done with PRC, this statement could just as easily morph into "The Department will advance our Major Defense Partnerships with countries around India to enhance their ability to deter Indian aggression and ensure free and open access to the Indian Ocean region."...

    Twitter and YouTube are completely different. And I already explained in that comment about echo chambers. You are not only using just koo. You are also using DFI, which gets a lot of info from twitter. So currently you aren't in an echo chamber. Everything else I've already stated, we should go...

    And I am telling you that the ban only works when the alternative so created actually takes off, which will only happen when its an open source alternative that has been designed not just for India but the whole world and as a result has takers across the world.

    OT for this thread, and I've said the same elsewhere, but this is not the way to kill YouTube and the others. The language barrier, which acts as a retardant to foreign cultural influences, is down in this country. India is already in the grip of international cultural influences and even our RW...

    Agree with that. Which is why Armed Forces are working on a non-contact warfare doctrine. @ezsasa had made a thread about it. But no progress heard about it in public domain since General Rawat's untimely demise.

    We need to get out of this mindset that "war is a thing of the past". No self-respecting country that wants to have a sovereign, independent stance on the global high table takes this view. COAS said this recently:-

    India US Relations

    Agree with everything you said. And I said the same thing. Only thing that ticked me off was @Dr_Deep 's insistence that we must believe that we have some "shared values" with USA. About your point on "planting the seeds to either fight against US or gain some form of leverage over it." I'd say...

    Talk to me about the pendulum swinging back after it swings back some, because right now, I don't see it slowing down, much less reversing. Also, temples is not what makes a land dharmic. Nor is it the government. Its the people. And they are here and have been here for millennia. India's...

    Look dude, I am not saying that we be rabidly anti-USA. But please don't bring in their talking points here about how we got some "shared values", etc. We don't. The only thing we share with them is that we are of the same species. That is my only gripe with your viewpoint.

    You might have been Russia-simping back when that war started. You are the one USA-simping now. And I am the one that needs a reality check? USA is not dharmic land. We have little to no shared values with them. Period. Rest all this "people-people relationships" you are talking about are a...

    I am not saying we shouldn't try, but looking at the push back China is getting, I think it could all be doomed from the get go. So first we should study Chinese attempts at influencing Western elite. Because like it or not, we can't do this more deftly than the Chinese who have an authoritarian...

    Most people here on DFI are of the opinion that fu*k USA, fu*k EU, fu*k UK, fu*k Russia, f*ck China and Pakistan especially hard and only be pro-India. So you can harp on about some imaginary "shared values" that we share with USA, I see none. Anglo-Saxons are the civilizational enemy of Bharat...

    Because its possible to fight US-backed 5th column in India while extorting USA in the name of China encirclement. And also militarily confronting China because like it or not they will clap you militarily when they get the chance. Also, its foolish to believe Chinese haven't already infiltrated...

    Beyond the usual ORF, etc think tanks, shouldn't this be the area where ex-IFS officers should be writing books on? I wonder what IFS officers usually do post-retirement.

    For those who were hopeful of USA "punishing" Pakistan after Afghan withdrawal. Just noticed: The thumbnail makes exactly ZERO sense.

    How large are the PRC's reserves? Will they hold till they reach the space mining phase?
