Picking sides on the sub-continent

Looking a lot like the entanglement of alliances that dragged the world into WWI, treaties on the sub-continent are coalescing into a couple of sides that no one wants to see duke it out.

Japan and India are strengthening their security ties.
Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his Japanese counterpart Yukio Hatoyama launched on Tuesday an action plan to take their security dialogue, including counter-terrorism, to the "next stage" and gave a push to a key economic pact.

And the Israelis are selling weapons to India to the tune of $5 billion.

Meanwhile, Pakistan is increasing their military ties with France and

The US has strategic deals with both, and needs Pakistan to help tamp down the Taliban while supporting India as a bulwark against spreading Chinese influence.

The Indians are also convinced they can fight a two-front war against China and Pakistan at the same time.
Shimla-based Indian Army Training Command, headed by Lt-General A S Lamba is getting ready for something Indian Military never was ready before. Indian Air Force, Navy, and Army is ready to face Pakistan and China at the same time.

India’s 1.13-million strong Military is now panning to handle two major war fronts at the same time. India considers Pakistan and China as part of the same camp. India knows the next war will be between India and “Pakistan +China.” India will get indirect support from America and Russia, but Indian Military will have to fight the two war at the same time.

Indian Military has been training for the mini giant war against two nuclear powered nations at the same time. China has used Pakistan for a long time to keep India busy. Now time has come for India to recognize a massive threat from China and Pakistan at the same time.
