Re: India-China News and Discussions

Webmaster blue, What about my post which talks about China and the potential Islamist threat to it and its vulnerabilities. I had done a bit of research before posting it and also spoken to several hardcore muslims in my area, who are active in mosques and there is this one group of them that specif...

Re: India-China News and Discussions

Babu's do not rule India. Elected representating certain ideals amonst the Indian electorate rule India for a fixed time. Even those representatives work at the will of the populace. There is no comparison. Even the worst elected representative is better tha the CCP and PLA goon. You are right. Bab...

Re: India-China News and Discussions
