Re: China Military Watch

Rahul M - hats off to you for your patience. Manjgu - do not argue for the sake of it. By your own admission you dont know much. Though Rahul pointed it out but you are still ranting - what do you mean by 'securing our fuel line from the gulf' ? Secure it from whom? If Chini cant reach then protect...

....... Can India go upto Dahongliuton and hold it for long term. Remote areas have to be occupied http://vayu-sena.tripod.com/pix/kashmir_aksai_chin_map.jpg From the map it would require the indian forces to cover a lot of the disputed territory . IMO chances of any GoI allowing for that to happen...

What are the nos of active chinese subs ? An estimate ? From the article- "Now the expectation is they will build this new class and, if it’s more successful, they will be capable of having submarines permanently deployed at sea with nuclear weapons," Thought of Chinese subs with nukes o...

@ Ramana

That was something I was also wondering about for quite some time . For a long time it seems Afghanistan was very much part of our scheme of things ..in contrast to the disconnect between us now ..

I don't see how taking an alliance with any of the major powers at that time would have helped today. At that time when USSR and USA were expecting all and sundry to either join them or the opposite alliance , I think NAM was one of the few things that was done right by Nehru . Our independence was ...

Just thinking aloud - a bit OT ... so if Russia can't choose between India and China (even today ) isn't there a conflict of interests when they back India over Kashmir but China backs Pak ( at least covertly..) ? Back to topic , the timing of the declassification might not be by design but certainl...

You are horribly late by birth. :!: Rossi's were not even at the side in 1947. We were totally angreji. Our forces got desi janrail saab in 1950's onwards. Indu started ballet with roosi somewhere in late 1950's as angrej wouldn't give us submarines etc. Fine but what did they have to gain if the C...

This war is about 30 years before I was born and I am only fed with very basic info so pardon my ignorance. I am not able to understand the Russian-Chinese Alliance angle here. Weren't the Roosi's on our side ever since the first time we fought the Pakis in 47 ? I thought we were already one of thei...

Went through one of the three pdfs and I am not really sure if all of it is credible . Despite most of the stuff about Nehru being more or less along expected lines , the article has a tenor about it in which virtually the entire blame is shifted on the Indians for incompetent political policies . I...

So far an extremely thrilling and raptourous story. :) I would love to see a little more GOI bashing ...more specifically the inability of a coalation government at the centre to come to decisions quickly . How about the PRC and IRP getting ready to open a new front in this senstive NE area while ou...
