    Hindus are accustomed to heat and desert. Will they agree to maneuvers in February somewhere in Yakutia?

    Well, I don’t know what effect of such exercises for US? Unless in terms of studying the way of action of the Indian side and clarifying (if carried out in India) some parameters (from technology to relief). And so just a waste of money, for me it is so wasted ...

      Any teachings, if they are not ostentatious, are always beneficial.

      Establishing friendships and recruiting in an informal setting. Who knows who some captain will become in ten years. Maybe he will remember the teachings, the drunkenness after them, and help in concluding an important contract. What would I remember exactly - send in the delegation the person with whom I was celebrating. Always amused by these "accidental meetings of old fighting friends" in the invited and welcoming groups.)

      In view of the hypothetical aggravation of relations with China. In this situation, having India and Vietnam as allies would be very good. And exercises must be carried out in advance. Maybe with someone else whom the Chinese are potential enemies. This, of course, does not mean that tomorrow or the day after tomorrow we will quarrel with China. God forbid. But gunpowder must be kept dry and prepared for all occasions. Even to a nuclear war with the Vatican.

    The Hindus are far from simple — conducting the exercises with us, they learn from our experience in leading the subdivision in conditions as close as possible to the fighting ones, because next to them there are no Pakistanis and Chinese-yawning.

    That's right. If you give a command, as if you had typed hot potatoes in your mouth, then the result will be - a mess. And if bl .., su .., forward, then speed, accuracy, initiative will be provided.
    Americans have not yet grown to the heights of the depths, or have not plunged.
    Therefore, our top will always be, and the Indians sense it.

    Personally, I do not like the name of the teachings "Indra", which means it is not clear. But, for example, RosInd is even more euphonious, and understandable))

    as for us I consider any teachings relating to the fight against terrorism to be only beneficial.
    But do the Indians need these teachings?
    quite possibly they will come in handy.
