India tests new nuke missle

While 3500 mile range doesn't exactly make you think ICBM, it does now allow India to strike major Chinese cities. Sort of surprised this wasn't already the case (missle range wise), but it does help bolster India's ambitions to be a regional power as well as give it some ability to stand up against a burgeoning PRC w/seemingly limitless regional ambitions of its own. Given NK's obsession w/nukes and China's desire to dominate the Pacific, I won't be surprised if other major countries in region start to turn toward nukes (SK, Japan, etc..), despite current ambivalences.
