Well I told before that Commies do not have real guts and grits to carry one something major. However, is this a celebration time in India? many
Indians will call for so.
This incident was a loser point for China though. Now if Indian minds are atleast half way as strategic, they would immediately make a China specific
war treaty with Japan. This way any Chinese action on either will immediately bog them down in a two front scenario something commies do not play
well. Japan also has defense pact with US so US is getting involved although indirectly but not invisibly. China specific point makes it easy for
Indians as their better friends the Russians will not be offended.
Another point for India is to make strategy for a two front scenario with China and Pak. Even if it means increasing defense budget from 2 to 3% of
GDP for few years. The resources should be more towards items that can be produced within the country so that added defense expenditures do not leave
the economy but act as a boost in forms of more employment, use of extra industrial capacity and local resources. An example would be creating 8
divisions of crack troops who specialize in mountain warfare and are cross trained to use infantry, artillery and even armor tools. Even if this
means reducing regular soldiers by 8 divisions and changing them to reserve status or something similar. Developing a mountain corps is in works but
regular feature of such forces need to be upgraded. Resources should also be spent of creating a totally volunteer civilian reserves who have gotten
6-10 week soldier training and their skills etc. can be upgraded via online study material and fitness maintained by self efforts to be checked every
six months. By 2020 India will be a very young country with average age of 29 only, so lots of human resources are available.
Indian program of Light Plane on F16 lines has to produce good 200-400 planes quickly to negate PLA's 300 odd J-9 to J-11 copycat series of Su-27s.
If this is too much of problem, then India should buy new Su-27s or MKIs or even 35s or even F15/F16 advanced versions immediately. Even half way
decent 27, MKI, F16, F18 can be bought for $25-40M and can pack some serious punch with constant upgrades and additions. No delay in Rafael program
can be expected, need 2 squadrons right away even on lease or bought used from French Air Force.
Indian tank Arjun is no nonsense machine, very late but very advanced and modified. Comes a $1M cheaper than T90 and $3M cheaper than M1-A1s. 4
Divisions of Arjuns 125 each will be an added sharpened steel axe-hammer on the Pak front decimating them within a week. Armor alone can cut the Pak
into two pieces threatening serious supply cut off to their forces fighting in North in Cashmir area.
Not to forget the nukes but don't even wanna go there for the sake of the humanity and peace. Although nukes bring more peace than imagined.
