India's border troop surge aimed at rising China? (2)

(China Military Online)

15:50, November 10, 2011

Second, the move made by India is connected with some practical issues of the China-India relations. The general development trend of China-India relations actually is good. The high-level exchanges and political relationship between the two countries are quite harmonious. However, the people of the two countries do not understand each other well and the mutual military trust is also not strong enough.

Between China and India, there are not only border issues left over by the history but also practical issues of the complex triangle China-India-Pakistan relations. India always worries about the good relationship between China and Pakistan, which is the biggest problem between China and India.

Meanwhile, India insists joining hands with Vietnam to step in the South China Sea issue. All of these factors will not help promote the mutual military trust between China and India. India incorrectly believes that China develops Tibet as a shield, and therefore it continues to strengthen its military power on the border to guard against and contain China.

India's arms expansion is also related to its domestic political climate. Certain Indian elites always take China as a frame of reference for India's development. As China has a clear lead over India in many areas, they are worried that India may lag behind China in seizing energy resources, and thus naturally see China's peaceful development as a "threat."

Certain Indian elites and media outlets have repeatedly criticized the Indian government for its lack of military investments, which they claim has led to slow development of the country's armed forces. However, the country's rapid economic development in recent years has set a solid foundation for its military buildup.

India is now emerging as a major buyer on the international arms market, and large amounts of advanced weapons from the United States, Russia, Israel and European countries have supplemented India's troop increase along the border areas with China.

In fact, deploying 100,000 more soldiers along the border areas with China is more of a political move than a military one. After taking necessary precautions, China just needs to continue to develop friendly relations with neighboring countries and adhere to its established security strategy, and then India's troop increase will be in vain.

India and China are neigbours from the ancient times. Today, they need to develop their cultural, human and economic ties. India and China can and should be complementary as neigbours and as challengers to the west!

first of all china should get out of pok. untill then there is little hope of "real peace" which china craves for. and for the person who is targetting the "upper caste hindoos" must know that we fight our enemy with shoulder to shoulder with our brothers. so stop day dreaming.
