Can India and China ever be friends?

'A participant in many rounds of border talks with China once told me that China seemed not interested in resolving the border issue as it wanted to keep it as a ready excuse to intervene in the sub-continent,' says Colonel Anil A Athale (retd). As the world balance of power, after a brief (200 years of European domination) hiatus, shifts to Asia, India-China relations have become critical input for world peace and prosperity. After many years of being stuck in stagnation, India-China relations ... Rediff.com, 2 weeks ago

Pakistan must know that we will respond!

'Pakistan is convinced that the Modi government has -- given its image and political compulsions -- no choice but to act in the case of another terror attack,' says Colonel Anil A Athale (retd). It seems we have learnt very little from the 26/11 attacks. Surely, the Mumbai police have got some fancy gear/weapons; the National Security Guard has a rapid reaction unit located in Mumbai and some other locations besides New Delhi, and the maritime police have got better boats. In some fundamental ...

What the Raksha Mantri needs to urgently do

'It is imperative to restore the dignity and authority of the services chiefs. Erosion of this has resulted in lowering of service efficiency. It is also time to end the practice of taking seniority as the sole criterion for appointing chiefs,' says Colonel Anil A Athale (retd). On Sunday, Manohar Parrikar was sworn into the Narendra Modi ministry and given the Cabinet berth of defence. He takes over the mantle from Arun Jaitley, who had been handed the portfolio as an additional charge to the ...

Why India needs a revamp of its security policy

It is time the new government, unencumbered by the burden of the past, initiates a wide ranging review and open debate on security issues to rectify our short-term and long-term shortcomings. It has taken some wise steps but has to go beyond this to identify the structural weakness and create systems, says Colonel (retd) Anil Athale. Security for a nation or an individual is a primordial need. To achieve any objective like economic prosperity or a rightful place in the comity of nations and ...

How India can win over the Kashmiris

'No amount of economic measures or prosperity in Kashmir will make any dent in the situation there.' 'The average Kashmiri understands the Pakistani game and is unlikely to prefer Pakistan over India. But the Pakistanis have made clever use of religious symbols and slogans to force religious-minded Kashmiris to support them.' 'India has failed to counter this posturing by the separatists,' says Colonel Anil A Athale (retd). The Indian Army celebrates Infantry Day on October 27 every year to ...

Tension with India is the best distraction for Pakistan

'The incidents have remained confined to the paramilitary forces on both sides with both the armies scrupulously avoiding getting involved.' 'While this incident has been going on, the LoC has been reasonably quiet. Cross border firing achieves no tactical or strategic aims and is more a symptom of hostility.' 'Unfortunately, India has to learn to live with this. Like Israel, we must construct shelters for the border populations and be ready to retaliate in kind,' says Colonel Anil A Athale ...

Economic issues key to Modi's US visit

'Political meetings will be a mere side show; the main show is economic investment and the business partnership. The success of Modi's US visit will be judged on the basis of India's ability to attract American investment and setting up of manufacturing in India to give jobs to millions,' says Colonel Anil A Athale (retd). As Narendra Modi embarks on his most important diplomatic journey later this week he faces formidable challenges to win over a sceptical American leadership and a ...

The idea of ISIS must be challenged

'Islamist terror groups have never been challenged ideologically. As long as their ideology survives, like cancer, these groups will sprout somewhere else, says Colonel Anil A Athale (retd). So finally after declaring that the United States had no strategy to deal with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, President Barack Obama has finally picked up the gauntlet and declared that the US along with its allies will 'disrupt, degrade and destroy' ISIS. It does seem that ISIS's days are numbered.
