Indo-Pac II.

This is coolbert:

India! Master plan.

Continuing with a series of blog entries the topic geo-political intrigue and calculations the Indian and Pacific Oceans. [Indo-Pac] See part I here.

India too has a plan for the Indian Ocean. The counter to the "String of Pearls".

India it seems lagging the Chinese even markedly so [?] it seems. A plan proposed but more on paper than in reality. A lot of catching up needed. And again, sea power in the classical sense a must. That proper combination of merchant vessels and naval force.

"He who controls the oceans controls the trade. He who controls the trade controls the commerce. He who controls the commerce controls the world!" - - Sir Walter Raleigh.
