India seen as enemy no.1 in China because of Tibet factor
The Economic Times[Monday, September 28, 2009 03:41]
NEW DELHI - India is spoken of as China's top enemy, a British newspaper has said in a report on the 60th anniversary of the People's Republic.

"Curiously, the enemy most often spoken of is India. The censors permit alarmingly frank discussion on the internet of the merits of a war against India to secure the Tibetan plateau," the report in the Sunday Times said. The report further quoted an unnamed contributor criticisng India over Tibet. "Help the Maoists take over power in India to pay them back for hosting the Dalai Lama," the contributor said.

Beijing is expected to mark its 60th anniversary by the grandest martial parade in the history of modern China with a display of its military prowess. "Thursday's parade is certain to provoke an outpouring of virulent nationalism," the report said. According to Chinese military websites, the People's Liberation Army would "unveil six weapons systems, including new generation Jian-10 fighters and JL-2 ballistic missiles." Some 200,000 soldiers will march in 56 formations, one for each of the officially recognised ethnic "nationalities" in China, the report added.

But it was also pointed out by veterans, who know the PLA well, that the Chinese Army had no battle experience and was riddled with corruption. "Compared with our last war against India in 1962, our equipment is much better but the devotion to country and people of our officers and men is much worse," an unnamed retired officer was quoted as saying.

The report also further said a system of bribes existed in the army with a good post for a private soldier ranging from £909. Even a place at the military college cost money, the report said.

Recently, Air Chief Marshal P V Naik had said that India's "aircraft strength is inadequate and is just one third of China's air force." He further said that it would take at least three years for the situation to change as the IAF was in the process to augment its inventory. He had said that China is one of the many challenge that India is facing in the current geo-political situation.
