China has stepped up its incursions into Indian territory. Here, from The Times of India.

And, we are not the only ones the Chinese are targeting with cyber-warfare. India reports daily attacks. Story here.

So what? This is the what. First, we must judge a country's intentions in the world by what it does, not be its rhetoric. China is showing itself to be something of a bully, shoving its weight around its area of the world. The question for us is this: what will it do when it feels itself stronger?

Second: India is a natural ally for us, much more so than many nations. It also is a democracy, has some Anglo institution from the British, and is a force in the marketplace.
