Re: India-US relations: News and Discussions III

Don't want to do the election to death, but let us not make the mistake of betting on the wrong horses for the next few decades and project the future political makeup of the United States based on demographics. If there is one thing we have learnt from this election, it is the fact that the urban a...

I wish people who do this would get punished, but look up what the US did to the crew of the USS Vincennes that shot down Iran Air 655, killing 290 people, or what the Russians did to the Su-15 pilot & his commander that shot down KAL007, killing 269 people.
