NEW DELHI: While India continues to drag its feet in setting up joint structures to give its armed forces a better punch from limited budgetary resources, the red dragon across the border is further sharpening its offensive claws.
China on Thursday announced a major overhaul of its military -- which at 2.3 million troops is double the size of the Indian armed forces -- to make it more agile and combat-ready, and capable of taking the battle to its adversaries far beyond its borders and shores.
Let us all stop buying Chinese goods
A strong economy is the foundation of millitary power. INDIA is neither. We are too divided and corrupt as a nation. So far Modi has failed to unify the country and bring about economic reform.

Modi is not being allowed by the Opposition to function and deliver.
Do not make excuses! China is building! We must build better!!
We need to correct our defence shortcomings without getting into an arms race with China that can crash our economy and hinder development. The country is in right hands now with defence getting the priority it merits.
China doesnt want war. But should be well equipted for any kind of situtation. Being weak is not good for any country
Our neighbors must be taking pride that India always lacks behind cos of politicians
China is deploying huge army

China is a major threat to us as well as they are ready to help Pakistan to defeat us in whatever way. We have to improve in all the side.
And how will India improve when there are people who would not let the PM work and criticize his each and every move, no matter how much of national interest is suffering because of that...

the whole world knows about the quality of chinese make. so their weapons may not be as good as it is projected.
Our leadership is holding us behind, thank goodness that the Congress are gone, hopefully the BJP can play catch up, but we are 10-15 years behind China, it is pathetic.
What ever it may be the Great Himalayan range is our greatest strength and natural boundary.
All our money. We import so many goods from China that they are left with so much surplus cash that they can rapidly modernize their army.
