this is the kind of head-up-their-butt analysis the atlanticist non-proliferation ayatollahs (what is the female version of an ayatollah? maybe robin raphel or shabana azmi?) in the us will be bombarding the US congress with, to convince it that india, not china, is the real threat to the us. some of these 'analysts' are surely being sustained by chinese funding.
"china is a distant strategic threat to india" claims this bimbo. and poor china, which has capped its fissile materials, is being forced into an arms-race by india and may be forced to stockpile new fissile materials!
i once saw the tarkovsky movie "solaris", which details a bizarre sentient planet which plays mind games with the people on a spacecraft orbiting it, for instance sending strange beings manufactured from people's memories into the spacecract. one guy finds his dead wife, who committed suicide, suddenly appearing on board.
this article reminds me of that situation: this bimbo and others like her are playing mind-games based on a manufactured reality.
the reality is that it is *china* that is threatening to send nukes to the us, from its 17,000 foot launch pad, that is colonized tibet. to which it is rapidly building a railway line, on which it will be able to hide its missile launchers.
as for the wonders of economic cooperation between india and china, in plain fact, all china-india trade is of the following type: india sells its raw materials cheap to china, which value adds them and sells them back to india, or uses them in its military buildup. not exactly a shining example of a win-win situation. but the indian pols on the chinese payroll (there is someone who wants to get hydrocarbons to india for china's benefit!) make big money on these transactions.
