China has deployed more advanced and survivable solid-fuel nuclear capable CSS-5 MRBM missiles against India as a 'deterrent posture', Pentagon has said warning that a high degree of mistrust continues to strain their bilateral ties.:eek:

The PLA has replaced liquid-fueled, nuclear-capable CSS-2 IRBMs with more advanced and survivable solid-fueled CSS-5 MRBM systems to strengthen its deterrent posture relative to India, the Pentagon has said in its annual report on Chinese military build up to the Congress.....The report also says that Beijing is pumping in huge investments on border infrastructure developments laying more roads and rail network along the Sino-Indian border......"Although this construction is primarily aimed at facilitating economic development in western China, improved roads could also support PLA border defense operations," it said.

Pentagon said that New Delhi remains concerned by China's close military ties with Pakistan and its growing footprints in the Indian Ocean, Central Asia and Africa......The report noted that Pakistan continued to be China's primary customer for conventional weapons and sales to Islamabad included newly rolled out JF-17 fighters with production facilities, F-22P frigates with helicopters, early warning and control aircraft, tanks, K-8 trainers, F-7 fighters, air-to-air missiles, anti-ship cruise missiles and missile technologies.

On Sino-Indian ties, Pentagon said, that though bilateral dialogue between the two nations increased, border tensions remained an irritant...."China deepened its ties with India through increased trade and high-level dialogues in 2010, though border tensions remained an irritant in the bilateral relationship. Bilateral trade in 2010 reached nearly USD 60 billion," Pentagon said.

Wow, if only our government were fortifying our southern border.

But seriously, China's concern about India to a lesser extent and Pakistan to a greater extent isn't new. China controls the headwaters of some very important rivers which sustain life in Pakistan and India, it's not hard to imagine that they see the advantage to that. China isn't so much aggressive as they are paranoid, and if Pakistan were my neighbor, I'd be paranoid too.

I have said many times before. China can not be trusted, they are building their military at an alarming rate. They have launched cyber attacks on the U.S. and other countries. They have nuclear capable subs off the U.S. coast. They are doing all this right under our nose and we (U.S.) are reducing the size of our forces.
