An interesting article on submarine development and acquisition going on in Asia.  The South China sea may get very interesting.

US/India space cooperation

During his recent visit, the President praised the recent accomplishments of the Indian space agency and pledged greater cooperation between the countries.  This was the right move for several reasons. The Indians are rightly proud of their achievements in space, particularly in regard to lunar exploration.  Cooperation between the world’s democracies will lead to quicker advancements in space, which we need.

Lockheed is looking to sell an F-16/F-35 hybrid to India.  Frankly, I’d be shocked if they are successful.  However, India is a huge weapons market, so I understand the desire.

Indian ASAT

It appears that India has joined the ASAT club.  Next to nukes, IMHO, having an ASAT capability will come to define what is a first rate military power in the future.  I predict that in the not too distant future, we’ll see a war where the participants go after each others satellites.

Looks like things continue to be hot on the border, but it doesn’t seem like they are escalating.  Keeping my fingers crossed.

India and Pakistan are shooting at each other.  At least one Indian MiG-21 appears to have been downed.  Pakistani JL-17s may have been involved.  When two countries with nukes start shooting at each other, we should all get worried.
