    Yo, are you there on xbhp too (on the KTM Duke 200 thread - just saw the same ID) ? :)

        Since when has India looked to Britain and the US for protection?

        Our closest ally to date has been the USSR/Russia. And even from them we never received any direct shooting support in any of the wars we have fought.

        We are just grateful that their subs made their presence known.

        Because the reason for this thread is a continuation of this thread where people seem outraged at the notion that the US might not help Britain in a possible replay of the Falklands conflict.
        Correct me if I'm wrong but India fought alongside the Allies in both those conflicts in a number of theatres. Surely Britain and America owed India to stand by her in the conflict with China? Certainly India requested 12 squadrons of fighter jets, a request that was refused.

          India never fought alongside the allies. British India did. There is a world of difference.

          Also, India is likened to an elephant. Lumbering, slow to anger, but with a long memory.

          What goes around comes around. So it is ordained.

                During the 62 war India might have asked assistance from like minded nations to stop the aggression of the PLA upon India, Soviet was not much in the picture during that time, but as far as we were aware of, during the 71 war the 7th fleet was mobilised towards Indian ocean where Soviet came into rescue and resulting in close terms with the Soviets, though latest release indicates that if PRC would have jumped into 71 war America would have assisted the Indian side and cause, but not necessarily either side of the military power bloc India was an Ally, India never had send troops for a Soviet cause or an US cause or ever permitted stationing of foreign troops or to establish such military base in the nation otherwise, the cause of Non Alignment was for the reason of development staying outside the sphere of cold war politics, When the East India company left India poor and under developed, the core concern was the development of the nation and not to be a part of any power bloc for a cause of international politics (the cold war)
                and waste it on military intentions.

                  In 1962, India was on nobody's radar. Nehru had kept us pretty much isolated and hence India had no hopes of any serious militrary assistance from any of the powers, otherwise it would have got sucked into one block or the other. Also, militarily 1962 was a must have, for the awakeing of India.

                  Must say thanks to the Chinese. ;)

                    They both did assist us by sending over armaments immediately after hostilities commenced. A very helpful gesture that we are grateful for.

The only nuclear state we have a potential problem with is China. France, India and Russian have no mor reason to target us than the US.
                          And why would China care enough about Australia to nuke it or whatever?

                            Maybe he is referring to the fact that their are no permanent friends nor enemies in international diplomacy.

                              I can recall in the last few years Chinese shot down their own satellite more then once - from mainland.
                              To prove the Aegis system could not only handle it and probably also so the satellite came down in the ocean instead of making landfall while it still had fuel which is poisonous.

                                I believe this thread have served its time, neither India would buy any yellow from a black market, nor she should Proliferate missile as per records and the fact that Oz don't have any threat from the Communist in the near future.
