Re: Why has it become so cool to hate India

Yup, we talk about leftists,DDM etc etc.But have we reflected on whether some are really paid by phoren intel?Could it just be possible that phoren funds are running our media?Could it be that the Green card and $$$ could have the same effect on Indians as Iraqis :p There is no dearth of those who s...

Re: Significant breakthrough in Nag project

Ha, To Indian bashing again!
This is a nation which was out of the loop of industrialisation for 2 centuries,was under embargo,denial regimes.Now people are pointing fingers?Only a few have strived hard for this nation to be counted.The rest lend their ugly voices in abuse and venom.

Re: Marketing of Indian Defence Products

One factor different will be US opted for airdominance or air supremacy.India will have no such intentions.What India will probably aim for is a major and rapid thrust -suffcient to cripple the enemy command.

With the chinese supplying M-9s to our beloved western neighbour,I feel a similar missile (better) with a chance of being offloaded in taipei should send signals in the right direction.China must behave more responsibly.

The only way the chinese can get LCA is by buying it!Say about 2000 or 3000 of them with options for more.These will be without any avionics and a derated engine.It must still be better than their J-10!!<BR>Of course the Vietnamese will get the latest versions!!
