NI Announces Cold War Between India and China

25

The American publication The National Interest published an article on the growing tension in relations between India and China. The author of the article, Richard (Richard) Bitzinger (Richard Bitzinger) writes that both China and India are aimed at being great powers, while they feel mutual competition and want to win it.


From the article:

In the two countries, respectively, the largest and second largest armies in Asia, as well as the highest and second largest defense budget. And both countries have huge defense industries designed to provide the best possible capabilities for their armed forces. weapons.

In the article, the author notes that the real “cold war” has long been going on between China and India, but only in the West they try to ignore it.

According to Bitzinger, modernization of the armed forces and nationalism are at the forefront in both India and China.

It is noted that both countries previously relied solely on the import of weapons, but over time they succeeded in their own production - albeit to a different degree.

From NI Material:

They produce almost everything: from small arms to nuclear weapons.

The author writes that India also relies on the licensed production of foreign weapons on its territory, trying with varying success to additionally receive new foreign technologies and develop its defense industry.

At the same time, the author informs his readers that "Communist China has nevertheless achieved greater successes than democratic India."

Commenting on these words, it is worth noting that you can, of course, call India a democratic country, but, with all due respect, in a state where a rigid caste system is still preserved, democracy is a clear problem. Although this is an internal affair of India itself.

Bitzinger:

China looks more successful when it comes to its own technology development and implementation. But the defense industry of India, against the background of its spasmodic development of other sectors of the economy, looks stuck in the past.

        If you could, then "set fire to b".
        The powers are big, solid, they don't need it at all before the global conflict. There is someone to "hold the geese"! And the chatter around was and will be! Where without her.

      After the end of the "hot" war, the "cold" war does not stop there. Both India and China hold impressive forces on the border.

    Fine! You should bargain with both parties and do your best to pit them. The world will only win if India and China erase each other in the last war.

      The world will never win from a warrior .. the economies of these countries will collapse and this will affect the whole world as a boomerang, but God forbid war with the use of nuclear weapons .. then there’s an environmental disaster ..

        Just in this case, the world will win: the developed world will finally get rid of economic competitors, and in addition, having lost industry, these countries will become extremely profitable sales markets.

          Consumer goods, electronics imagine how it will rise in price?
          having lost industry, these countries will become extremely profitable markets

          They will not only lose industry, they will lose a lot of people, but what if with the use of nuclear weapons? Then, given the population density of the victim, billions can be calculated, and what kind of market will it be?

          Do you understand that war is the death of people, including women, children ?!
          You argue as Anglo-Saxons, inciting Hitler to the USSR.
          Are you a fascist, or is this stupid bravado of a dumb teenager ?!

            The truth is that war is not a catastrophe and horror - it is a natural order of things, just the world is an anomaly, which is confirmed by huge statistics: mankind has fought most of its history. I am inclined to think this way: as a person develops, he has gradually stepped out from the natural factors of population control: predators are no longer a threat, natural disasters cause disproportionately fewer losses, compared with ancient times, we successfully cope with diseases - we finally destroyed the same smallpox. But there must always be a regulator, otherwise humanity will gobble up all the resources of the planet. The regulator was just artificial factors, the main of which was war. People must fight, weapons must become more and more deadly, there must be as many losses as possible so that mortality keeps up with the birth rate and does not allow humanity to breed too quickly. If you go deep enough, then I believe that mortality is constant. In antiquity, it was roughly equally distributed between a bunch of natural and artificial factors. As natural factors were eliminated, their share flowed into artificial ones - therefore wars are becoming more destructive. In the future, I believe that natural factors will be finally eliminated, and the size of humanity will be regulated exclusively artificially.

        Tell this to the United States, which is so heated in two world wars that it is still reaping the benefits. Although yes. The rest of the world, it did not help much. In addition to devastation, deaths and dollar slavery, world wars did not lead to anything. The Yalta agreements are already being questioned.

      The world will benefit only from the Cold War between them. A hot war is beneficial to no one (and, in fact, you need to be a traveled cannibal in order to want a war between two densely populated nuclear powers).

    "Communist China has nevertheless achieved greater successes than democratic India."

    And it is less necessary to look towards Washington, then the matter is better argued.

    “They produce almost everything: from small arms to nuclear weapons”

    And why the Cold War, it's just competition in the military sphere.

    This is a permanent state between India and China, the Chinese have long been inserting hairpins helping Pakistan and the war room was small when the Chinese were pushing their way through the Indian mountains in Tibet straight to Pakistan. A piece of Indian territory was chopped off.

    calling India a democratic country, but, with all due respect, in a state where a rigid caste system is still in place, there are clear problems with democracy. Although this is an internal affair of India itself.
    And something in the "democratic west" does not bother anyone at all. Problems with democracy, in their opinion, only in Russia.
    India relies on the licensed production of foreign weapons on its territory
    True, they forget to say that not a single country (except Russia) ever shares key technologies with India. While China, on the contrary, wanted to spit on patent law, and the rest of the formalities. He ruins everything without getting it. Though not with the best quality, he doesn’t pay for patents. Although India, even with all the licenses, the quality of military products of high science intensity, did not differ.
