Reading all those articles lately is there a current tension between China and India @Joe Shearer @Nilgiri @SOUTHie
Huge, Sir, but largely one-sided. We sit and worry about them; they have us on the back burner until they have figured out where they are on their confrontation with that erratic and very dangerous Trump. More when I return; rushing out on urgent work.

it's been like that for a while now. Since Modi took over, he is in a confrontational mode with our 'not so friendly' countries. I don't know what's up with him and why this strategy.
1) Power - Scare people so much, dierectly or indirectly via boogeymen, that follow you like sheep

2) Money - Nothing like a national security crisis, to sign plethoras of defense hardware contracts, and......

I don't think raising Pakistan or China can win elections anymore. At least majority of the people who voted BJP was for development and economic stability. As an example, they tried to invoke the Pakistan issue but that didn't work in Gujarat.

Your second point is possible. Since in corruption, I don't see much difference between political parties. Only that one does a better job of covering things up.

@jbgt90 What's your view on the post by webby?
Well let me put it to you this way , not a single shot has been fired on the Chinese border in 40 odd years , Sure there is posturing by them and us but thats to be expected. neither wants or can afford a confrontation now as it would ruin their economy , and believe me when i say our economies is whats of paramount importance to both countries.

He needs to prove his salience, compared to the previously prevalent position on international affairs?

Somewhat, its mostly posturing (hey look what we can do if you keep this up....all major countries do this)....but essentially it is of limited use in any really large conflict given the logistical issues the Tibetan plateau poses for men and material formations esp in relation to the C4I India has deployed with defenders advantage.

China for large part (I'd say occupying 90% or more of their current strategic doctrine) is focused on ways to break out sustainably of the island chain to its east (both long term and options available in a hypothetical conflict). USN + allied deployment there is far more serious challenge to their military and economic/population heartland (the coast). Essentially the Chinese know very well India is not interested in any challenge to Tibet and Russia is a pretty strong ally of convenience currently so Uighur + Manchuria + Mongolian plains are more or less secured for the mid term. But their navy is severely hemmed in and constrained operationally to the east with an extremely capable adversary they will be in an inferior position for quite some more time...thus its the main focus.
