India's border troop surge aimed at rising China?

(China Military Online)

Beijing, Nov.10 (People's Daily Online) --India's defense ministry has already approved a 13-billion-U.S.-dollar military modernization plan and has decided to send an additional 100,000 soldiers to the China-India border areas over the next five years. This move is regarded as India's second phase of a military buildup along the China-India border.

Once the plan is approved, it will be the Indian military's largest ever expansion plan and its largest increase in the number of soldiers along the border with China since the India-China border clash in 1962 ended.

India's move is first associated with the adjustments to its national security strategy. India has begun to consider China as an opponent. The East China Sea and South China Sea issues have further continued to expose some countries' "envious, jealous and hateful" attitude toward China. The changes in the international and regional security landscape will negatively affect China and other countries involved, but they will benefit one country: India.

The United States has recently cemented its ties with India and has regarded India as a crucial strategic alliance. At the same time, Japan has been busy facilitating the expansion of India’s military influence into East Asia.

India not only stepped into the South China Sea issue, which is very sensitive to China, but also increased troops on the border between China and India and upgraded their weapons. India is also strengthening its military exchanges with the countries around China.

When I was sent to the Indian Army Education Officer Training Center to study and participate in exchanges in 2007 and 2008, I met military officers from Vietnam, Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Laos and Outer Mongolia.

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.
