Are India & US preparing for the worst?

Too many exercises and co-operation in the defence field happening between the US and India these days.  Close on the heels of the armies of the two countries taking part in Yudh Abhyas 2009 at Babina near Jhansi, its time for the Air Force of the two countries to take part in Cope India 2009 at Agra.

Is it just co-incidence or is there too much that is not being read into it?  With Pakistan fast spiralling into a deep abyss, are India and US practising for the time when the threat of the Pakistani govt being run over by the Taliban comes true?

Yudh Abhyas 2009

Is the close co-operation a signal that the governments of both sides accept the fact that Pakistan is fast losing its fight against the Taliban and the ISI propped up terrorists.  Maybe the governments know something that people in general dont know. Maybe its an exercise to practise how to decamp with Pakistani nuclear weapons in case of a runover of the Pakistani government by terrorists.

Finally the monster created, nurtured and propped up by successive Pakistani governments against India is coming back to bite the master itself.

Like the saying, “the one who digs a hole for the other falls into it himself first”. How true.  Not a good sign for India to see its neighbour descend into chaos, but there is nothing much India can do other than exasperate at the happenings in the neighbourhood.  The chickens have come home to roost.

How long the Pakistani government and its army will bury its head in the sand like an Ostrich before they understand that the monster they created is finally too big for them to control and is hell bent on destroying their own country.

It was Pakistan’s Prime Minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto who declared that Pakistan will eat grass, but will make a nuclear bomb.  Looks like the time to eat grass has come.  Finally.

    China is extending all it’s support to our neighbours like Pak,Bangladesh,Nepal,SriLanka,Mayanamar.China will use all of them against us.
    I dread a scene when we get into trouble,USA demanding their pound of flesh before coming to our help.
    USA is known to be in love with itself,they care for themselves…and why not.
    However,I don’t think all this is a coincidence,it seems to be a well planned strategy by India and US

      Its just a slanging match by the neighbours. Neither China nor India would want to get into a war. It would only set both back by decades. Of course India is much much behind China when it comes to the military strength, but India is not the India of 1962. Its already a nuclear power and does have reasonably good armed forces to give China a bloody nose.

      Also this nationalistic game would only hurt the Chinese business interests in India more than the other way round.
