Very well said, since they are more interested in trade, an not confrontation, implementing others doctrine is not in India's interest. A min. credible deterrent is good enough. The money wasted on aircraft carriers, sqdns upon sqdns of cutting edge a/c's, tanks in the thousands, could be well spent on healthcare, education, housing and sanitation.This is scary, from the Indian point of view. The KJ-2000s, as well as their development of Y-9 aircraft as sensing, e-warfare, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance platforms, and as weapons platforms, are force multipliers; their already formidable arsenals of advanced fighter aircraft, and their defensive missile networks, will gain tremendously in coordination, streamlining of activity and outreach due to these platforms. As it is, their production of the essential attack units - fighter and attack aircraft for the air force, destroyers, frigates and submarines for the navy, and tanks and infantry oriented vehicles, besides basic artillery, tubed and tubeless, for the army - keeps pouring out a seemingly limitless output.
I do not know that a purely confrontational attitude is a useful one in these circumstances.
I agree, the Subcontinent should first focus on improving human lives / reducing poverty, that should be first priority, nothing else!Very well said, since they are more interested in trade, an not confrontation, implementing others doctrine is not in India's interest.

Lets say, India becomes a regional super power with 3+ aircraft carriers, etc etc, but people who have are the bottom of the hierarchy still like this, what have you achieved?
