China-India Border Dispute

NEW DELHI – India announced plans Wednesday to test launch a new long-range missile, capable of carrying a nuclear warhead as far as the Chinese capital Beijing for the first time.
Officials and defense experts said if the tests of the Agni-V missile proved successful, it would mark a significant improvement in India’s nuclear deterrent capability, and would strengthen its hand in a hostile neighborhood, sandwiched between nuclear-armed rivals Pakistan and China.

Senh: Why are we so hard on Iran and North Korea with their nuclear programs, but we say nothing about India? Oh wait, India's one of our allies. Pakistan and China are our enemies, and so are Iran and North Korea.
