The Indian army has predicted a war with its
nuclear-armed neighbor China by 2017 as Beijing
continues to strengthen its military muscle.

A secret military exercise, called 'Divine
Matrix', by the Indian troops visualized a war
scenario with China, the Hindustan Times reported Saturday.

"A misadventure by China is very much within the
realm of possibility with Beijing trying to
position itself as the only power in the region,"
a senior army officer told the daily following the maneuver.

An Indian military's assessment has outlined that
Beijing would rely on information warfare (IW) to
bring New Delhi down on its knees.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Pentagon released a
report warning that China was busily trying to
arm its forces with weapons that can be used to
nullify the superiority of any naval and air
power that could disrupt the balance of region.

China is concerned about growing ties between
Washington and New Delhi. A controversial deal
allowing India access to civilian nuclear
technology has not been well-received among Chinese officials.

New Delhi, meanwhile, is suspicious of Chinese
relations with India's long-time rival Pakistan.

India and China fought a brief but bloody war
over border dispute in 1962 with a decisive victory for the Chinese.
