India considers recurring Sino-Indian border clashes a potential threat to its security. Since the war, each side continued to improve its military and logistics capabilities in the disputed regions. China has continued its occupation of the Aksai Chin area, through which it built a strategic highway linking Xizang and Xinjiang autonomous regions. China had a vital military interest in maintaining control over this region, whereas India's primary interest lay in Arunachal Pradesh, its state in the northeast bordering Xizang Autonomous Region.

India and China have always had little scuffles but the war we need to worry about is India and Pakistan. They how do you say... HATE eachother.
Indians are not hate filled people
Do you not think it more likely that China's rise to superpower status will lead to the demise of communism there?
