The real and acute threat of a Sino-US conflict over Taiwan
India should worry a great deal about a Sino-United States (US) war over Taiwan. To be fair, why it should is not necessarily obvious. After all, the Western Pacific is far from India. And many in New Delhi appear sceptical that Beijing would risk a conflict with the US. The reality, however, is that there is an acute danger of a Sino-US war over Taiwan in this decade. And an American defeat, which is far from impossible, would be disastrous for India.
