If and when our armed forces are allowed to retaliate, I would like to see the Airforce start the first wave of attack, notwithstanding the "controlled escalation nonsense". The last we want is a Kargil redux. So what is your strategic objective and how the IAF feed into that? I am not sa...

Communication is key. I have no doubts that we have a nationalistic team at the helm. However the main issue is clarity of communication. That has been sorely lacking.

When is the Raksha Mantri going to make a statement ? He should face the press and explain. Whatever be the losses on the Chineese side, 20 army men killed and many others wounded, propriety demands that the RM meets the press and gives out a statement.

Those who argue that the results in TN are a vote against ADMK are missing two things. #1. The electorate gave 9 seats (vs 11 to DMK) in the assembly election by-polls. Good enough to let the current govt. survive its full term. #2. Before the elections, in a poll about who is the "best person&...
