Power behind Arrogance: Assessment of China’s Air and Missile Arsenal
Lt Gen (Dr) V K Saxena (Retd), PVSM, AVSM, VSM, Distinguished Fellow, VIF

Going backwards from recent acts of Chinese belligerence and barbaric conduct in Galwan (sic) totally divorced from all ethos of soldiering, into events of the recent past, a pattern emerges. A pattern of Chinese aggressiveness, arrogance and more; unfreezing and heating up the border issue with India with a stink of hegemony and while the temperatures are high on both sides, carrying out military drills just across the border as if to send a crude message to India. Creating unrest and instability at several places on the Line of Actual Control (LAC) as if to give signal to the exiting businesses from China that India is an ‘unsafe and unsettled domain’. Churning the calm waters of the South China Sea with aggressive posturing day-after-day probably to turn the global eye away from ‘Covid guilt’ in which the country is in the ‘eye of the storm’, bullying Hong Kong; showing eyes to Taiwan and more. In short, the rumblings of the dragon can be heard in different hues of anger and frustration, very passing day.
