from early April, the Indian National immersed in the joy of military strength across. April 4, the Russian-leased “cheetah” offensive submarine into the series of the Indian Navy, Indian media is singing China has entered a “nuclear submarine country club”. 19, independent research and development in India “Agni” -5-range ballistic missile successfully test-fired the country’s public opinion wins praise This indicates that India is finally moving intercontinental ballistic missile club “.
Government of India’s national image slogan: “Incredible India” (Incredible India). This sentence can also be used to describe the country’s military buildup. Large-scale procurement of India’s obsession with the development of sophisticated weapons, and feel free to money forthright, have made the world’s admiration. In the past five years, India is on the import of weapons than any other country in the world, a total of up to $ 12.6 billion. Why India is so great importance to the defense industry? Experts on the “News of the World” Summary: First, to meet with China a competitive advantage psychological, the second is seeking the identity of the “world powers” signs. The
“China phobia severe anxiety
April 19, 2009, over 5000 km range Agni -5 was successfully tested in India media show proud, not forgetting to mention China. Indian Defense Review Web site, “said,” Agni “-5, combat range can carry nuclear warheads to northern China. India’s military deterrence more than one trump card. ” The Times of India said, “Agni series of missiles adds teeth to India’s nuclear deterrent”. “Hindustan Times”, Chinese media reported the news, reveals a “serious anxiety”.
In fact, regardless of whether the Indian government is willing to show that the development of -5 motives of the “Agni”, the “China threat” has been the main starting point for the development of defense industry in India. According to Indian media reports, the Standing Committee of the Indian Parliament Defense held a hearing in early April, the Indian Army vice chief of staff, SK. Singh said in the statement of the Army need to increase budgetary reasons, referring to China’s military modernization and military cooperation between China and Pakistan: “They are the main strategic threat faced by India.”
The Hindu “Web site reported that on April 4, the Indian Defense Ministry has long been suffering from a phobia. In 2008, Indian Defense Minister AK Antony has directed the army to do the preparation of the two lines of the war. “Two lines” refers to the northeast of India and China fronts and fronts in the north-west Pakistan, these fronts should be given equal emphasis. In November 2011, the Indian Socialist Party leader and former defense minister Mullah iam Singh Yadav told parliament he was convinced that in the near future, China will attack India. He flatly said: “attack will occur at some point.”
March 17 this year, India announced a defense budget for 2012-2013 fiscal year, amounting to 1.9 trillion rupees ( about $ 39 billion), an increase of 17.6%. In just the past three months, India has demonstrated the construction of armaments “big ticket”: the end of January to determine the purchase of 126 French Rafale fighter; February 10 coastal military bases in the eastern state of Orissa has successfully conducted the first 7 missile intercept test; March 11, “K-15 ballistic missile successfully test-fired a submarine. In addition, India purchased from Russia, “Vic Rama Tia” aircraft carrier sea trials will be the end of May. The sea trial will last 3-4 months, the Russian plan before the end of the transfer of the aircraft carrier to India. So far, India away from the target to build three aircraft carrier battle group has been very close. Anga the Lika · Bada Lai, senior South Asia analyst
UK economy intelligence agencies, “The Economist on the Information Society”, India feverishly to upgrade weapons and equipment, in order to narrow the competitive gap with China. ” . He said in an interview with the Hindustan Times interview, China’s military budget in recent years has been to increase, while India’s military can not catch up with China, because military spending is determined by a country’s economic strength, but apparently India do not want to give the growing gap between the impression.
The Times of India also believes that China’s “big man” can not always give India rest assured that the reason is the rise of China’s military spending “too fast”, 2012 China’s defense budget amounted to 670.274 billion yuan, an increase of 11.2 percent over the previous year. Meanwhile, China is increasing the cruise and ballistic missiles reserves of wide public concern “Dongfeng-21D” ballistic missiles pose a threat to U.S. aircraft carrier deployed in the Pacific. Air Force and Navy, the Chinese developed the fifth-generation fighter F-20 “has completed the test, China’s first aircraft carrier experimental platform has also completed a number of sea trials.
Analysis believe that “China’s defense industry for every forward step further, the sense of crisis in India will increase.”
China competition in mentality out of control
since the 1962 Sino-Indian border war, India has always had a “defeated nation” mentality, always regard China as India’s largest competitors, everything should be and the level of China to compete. Plus India and China, the world’s largest developing country, therefore inevitable with China compared to India, however, should not let that emotion out of control.
New Delhi, a senior who said “News of the World”, the road of a strong army in India appear to have erred, the act of “China threat” as the driving force of the progress of the defense industry, which is neither reality, is not rational. “China never thought to threaten India, let alone to attack India; the contrary, China has always believed that the two countries should coexist peacefully, work together. India must go beyond the psychological vicious circle.”
some Indian media also began to reflect Competition with China, blindly arms hardware is futile, if India wanted to catch up with China, it is better to focus more on research on China’s military strategy. “The Hindu” web site refers to a historical story of China, India should not fear. 266 years BC, the Macedonian king Antiochus Keer Shi send troops surrounded Greek city Bangmaijiala, trying to occupy the city’s harbor. At first, people thought the war would be ended in the failure of Maijia La, because the two sides balance of power is too poor. Results, Mai Jiala small facilities trick, group fire livestock rushed to the army of Antiochus Keer Shi. To see these strange ball of fire, the army in the war like the terrified, fleeing in all directions, accidentally trampled to death of many soldiers. The moral of the story contains some threat does not exist, they exist only in people’s minds. As the Sino-Indian relations, India has no reason to fear China. First of all, China has never been in India as a major threat; Second, India lacks the confidence of the country’s national defense capabilities.
article said that India’s response to China’s military buildup, the best solution is to spend more time to study China’s strategic thinking. At present, the Indian universities, military, intelligence agencies is a serious lack of talent familiar with Chinese, there is no adequate manpower reserves, so what is to study the complex sophisticated military strategies. Do not know where to use weapons and then senior useless.
access to “world powers” pass
New Delhi, the veteran told the News of the World, “If you study Indian history will find entirely militaristic “to describe India to develop the defense industry, it is not comprehensive enough. Indeed, India’s obsession with military construction, not confrontation and who, but from the self-defense psychology in the national consciousness of India. “India’s history is a history of oppression of the suffering, and constantly was alien invasion in 2000 the long history of insecurity deeply accumulation in the consciousness of the Indian nation, resulting in today’s India the powerful army of exhausting all efforts to , in order to show the strength of defending the homeland. “the senior source said.
China Contemporary International Relations Institute of Indian experts on Fu Xiaoqiang, India military buildup as a stepping stone towards a world power, a strong army, military expansion is a shortcut to achieve the dream of the big country. “To be blunt, India would like to prove the identity of their own country to the outside world through the display of military power,” Fu Xiaoqiang, “News of the World”.
India’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, the founder of the great Indian dream. Nehru in 1945 published the discovery of India “wrote:” In the future, the Pacific will be replaced by the Atlantic Ocean to become the nerve center of the world. Although India is not a Pacific country, but inevitably there play an important influence. October 1949, Nehru said in a letter to the Chief Minister to the states that: “The whole world recognized the future of Asia will be India’s future decision. India will gradually become the center of Asia.”
It is inspired by the spirit of the pursuit of great power status, India has developed an ambitious land-based strategic and maritime strategy. On land, the Indian policy pursued based on “two fronts”, China and Pakistan as the primary enemy. At sea, India sought to control the sea lanes, and the formation of the actual control of the Indian Ocean from a regional deterrent and control “to” Ocean offensive “across from the Cape of Good Hope, the Suez Canal to the Strait of Malacca. Some analysts said that from this sense, a ballistic missile “Agni” -5 not only, it is a political missile. It announces to the world, India has reached a level of military power with the defense industry, is moving from regional power to a global power forward.
However, some Indian analysts believe that building a large country on the gunpowder can not be called a true sense of the country. Critics have pointed out that half the population below the poverty line in India, terms of people’s livelihood index, India I am afraid to count a lot of rows in the world. In addition to the powerful arms systems, infrastructure, population size, social security, education level, these are also to measure a country’s standards. India needs more comprehensive strength straining, rather than focus on the military this. (Reporter/Yang Huan)
