A) Obviously we need to preserve the Subcontinent's Balance of Power, the Evil Axis of China, Pakistan and USA cannot be allowed to slide into a position of superiority. Over US or our allies.1. Vote on deal proposed by Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi
A) Yes, this will be beneficial to USSR
B) No, it will lead only to increased tensions with the West and China
Once they receive their weapons we can ask them to conduct some of the largest military exercises in history, further diverting the attention of the Pakistanis and the Chinese.
B) Agriculture - We are addicted to US grain. Despite being such a large country with low population density we can't feed ourselves, we need to correct that at once.2. Redistribution of recovered/saved money and resources:
A) Soviet Space Program
F) Light industry and production of consumer goods
We should have a composite trade agreement with India. We can sell them all the military hardware that they want, in return require them to supply us consumer goods. It will stop straining the reserves of a developing country while at the same time improve the quality of life of our people. They are the only country among the 10 largest economies apart from us ofc that is friendly to us, we need to strengthen this symbiotic relationship.
G) The Europeans will not want nukes to be used on their soil and our conventional superiority should suffice. But we can never face the sheer numbers if China even if we completely reoriented our defence towards China, which is not possible given the threat to the west, even in such a case we are terribly outnumbered. We simply cannot take on China in any more than a major skirmish without the use of nuclear weapons. Mao once said that even if we kill 400 million Chinese, they would still win as they would have 400 million left, I say we should test this hypothesis.3. Soviet strategy for potential conflict with NATO and China:
a) Conventional offensive stance against NATO in Europe and conventional defensive stance against China
b) Nuclear offensive stance against NATO in Europe and conventional defensive stance against China
c) Nuclear offensive stance against NATO in Europe and nuclear defensive stance against China
d) Conventional defensive stance against NATO in Europe and conventional offensive stance against China
e) Nuclear defensive stance against NATO in Europe and conventional offensive stance against China
f) Nuclear defensive stance against NATO in Europe and nuclear offensive stance against China
g) Conventional offensive stance against NATO in Europe and nuclear defensive stance against China
In Afghanistan we should create militias of Pashtuns and Balochs, who want independence from Pakistan and support them with the same level of weapons as the Americans provide to the bandits calling themselves Mujahideen. We should make them strong enough that the fighting should shift to Pakistani soil and attacks should be carried out deep into Pakistan. Further attacks inside Pakistan should be using cruise missiles and tactical ballistic missiles, the Pakistani's should learn that if they play with fire, they would get their hands burnt.
