Re: The Rohingya Menace

^ Modi is not listening. Amit Shah is already planning for 350+ LS seats. They will do the bare minimum to get to there. This latest salvo on minimum wage must be seen in that context. So they may or may not move on the Rohingya . Perhaps you need to do more than post on this forum. It is up to you ...

I agree ... The Chinese have super powers!!! BUT I fail to understand how they got played both at Doklam and BRICS? And that too by someone who doesn't know statecraft per you. I suspect the Chinese were being very strategic here too. What do you say sir? Eagerly waiting for your analysis. Though I ...

Re: Sunni Terrorist Fragments of Unstable Pakistan - June 20, 2017

I think the Bakis are so obsequious towards the Chinese because the Chinese have some kind of control over the baki bum. Perhaps a Chinese PAL is what is in use. I think, the initial hype around the nukes falling into jihadi hands was quietened on Chinese assurance of some kind of control. Of course...

3. Do we have an instance of a bridge collapse that was meant to take tank traffic?

Otherwise the whole thing is retorical.
