Good for them. Hope they have some good pilots to fly them.

Maybe I’ve just missed it but we seem to make a big deal of our European allies and neglect India altogether. They are a nuclear power and a technologically advanced country and they sit between two nuclear powers that are hostile to U.S. and friends. Maybe most of it is just under the table and not obvious but it seems we should be doing more with them.

India does need to enhance and increase their aircraft carrier capabilities. Control of their border with the Chinese is only 33.3% of the equation.

Control of the Straights of Malaka is critical. If oil from the Gulf can be interdicted from the south, and the Chinese Navy can be interdicted from the north, China will lose their ability to wage war anywhere in about 90 days.

Then there are the scumbag Pakistanis

The street-shitters are beyond disgusting but at least they don't eat dogs so if push comes to shove, I'd prefer to see them prevail in a war against the chinks.

Be that as it may, we'd all be much better off if both sides launched some nukes at one another and ended up taking out much of Pakistan and North Korea as collateral damage.

A couple of Arleigh Burkes or Ticonderogas would about do it.

Make it a few of each. That would more than handle the oil shipments....as well as all the shit the Aussies send them. The Straits are a horse of a different color. The Chinese will do about anything to avoid cutting them off.

Take the South pacific and IO away from them and the only ally they have left is Canada.

I think Russia has been India's main supplier for military hardware, it was under Trump that the USA got its foot into the door.

The Indian people are good people. Sometimes they are hard to do business with but still, they are good people. They are not likely to EVER blow themselves up in order to kill any of us and they are not trying to take over the planet like China is. We need to keep them as our rock-solid allies. China has already bought lots of countries in Africa so when the world has had enough of China they won't be any help at all.

There is no country in Africa of any value, outside of raw materials, with or without the Chinese.

As time marches on, all people will eventually rise to the socio-economic level of we're at....until it gets to Africa. All progress stops in Africa.
