Interesting read, a little disturbing, but thanks for posting. I was not aware of the extent of this particular strategic gamesmanship dynamic in the region. 
Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth...

terrible article packed with inaccuracies, I've seen the way India works and they haven't got even got a proper MBT before we even start talking about this  hypothetical French/Israeli starwars stuff up for sale

not to mention the fact Peter has painted a extremely incorrect political picture (India like Pakistan is also a reluctant ally, India is a former USSR stooge, they contributed nothing to the war in iraq and still buy mostly Russian weapons)

With global stocks tanking Peter J Brown must have shares in some HK defense company and he wants to up the anti, and make some money by spinning yarns.

Excuse me, but what does "MBT" mean here?

The article may not be that accurate, but I would seriously argue against the stooge comment. India has an independent foreign policy and it is just as easy to argue that the US has (perhaps unsensibly) favoured Pakistan over India, depite India being the world's largest democracy (abeit seriously corrupt).
