Re: China Military Watch - Sept' 2016

There is another reason why China will never wage an open war against any country having decent combat capability for eg. Japan, Russia, India or even vietnam or phillipines. This is because they absolutely hate to "Lose Face" . In this matter China is very similar to its close friend Paki...

Re: 2019 Strategic and Political Analysis-1

India is under-policed, in terms of number of police per thousand people. I believe the ratio is one of the lowest in the world. Even if all the sanctioned police posts are filled, it will still be so. Guptaji, Pls spare us. If there is one thing we do not want more of, it is cops. Ok increase in s...

You also have to factor in some aerodynamic inefficiency imposed by stealth shaping. At the most range of AMCA with 4 tons internal fuel will be equal to that of Tejas. It should be able to attack rawalpindi, karachi and maybe lhasa.

Those giving such simplistic and naive solutions like increasing the number of PCR vans, should first conduct a deep study of Islamic scriptures starting with Quran. They should go through its history and muhammad's biography.
