The MND says very clearly retaliation will be on the attacker and their allies.
It won't happen anytime soon. This century will be China's and Russia's on a global level. Regionally, it will be India. If Russia thought India would open up on China, they would isolate us quickly. It's simply best not to use them. Pakistan is a toxic cesspool and knows India wont ingress too far. Overall we are fine.
War window w/ China has also been effectively closed. There is no way in hell they are going to try anything now. With 2nd mountain strike corp on the way, artillery, aircraft, etc. coupled with thaw in relations with USA, China will find it very difficult to win. Agni V and Gagan Shakti has also scared the sh*t out of them. I think the scale and smooth execution has really planted a big seed of doubt into their heads.
