Re: Many dead, including Police SP in Gurdaspur Terror attac

I am sorry Harpalji, I find both of your statements logically tenuous. Game theory posits what is in the player's best interest? How does Pakistan benefit from this? How does a timescale further Pakistan's options? A little more meat and less gravy please. It benefits Pakistan because it informs the...

Re: Armoured Vehicles Discussion Thread - August 9 , 2014

I am relieved that the army has not asked for photon torpedo in this iteration of the FM BT. That will be one of the 93 changes they will demand on the original for the MK2....the one they might consider buying in quantity. Some of the others include: [*] A DiLithium crystal powered Warp Drive [*] ...

Re: Sunni Terrorist Fragments of Unstable Pakistan - Apr 22

At some point the NSA should have a nice chat with his Chinese equivalent, where he conveys to him that India has no concerns about Pakistan's nuclear weapons --they have none. India regards all of them as belonging to China. After all, the reactors are of Chinese origin; so is the separation plant;...

Re: Indian Naval News & Discussion - 22 April 2015

India bought a floating turd and paid Russia $2.3 Billion to polish it. An AC is defined by its air wing. So, if India wishes to build more of the Vikrant class, it should work with France to have the Rafale-M ski-jump qualified, if it is not already. There is no point spending billions on a carrier...

Re: LCA News and Discussions, 22-Oct-2013

I am largely on the IAF side on this one --they were, and are, far more sinned against than sinners. They have been lied to, repeatedly, in a bald-faced manner. The engineers and decision makers from DRDO & HAL have treated the IAF as a bunch of dumb neophytes and then hidden behind the skirts o...

Re: Sunni Terrorist Fragments of Unstable Pakistan - 10 Oct

Thanks to pankajs for finding this gem --it needs a wider viewership. It is the NSA expounding on Kashmir, Pakistan, & Indian failings in dealing with both of them, with potential solutions. Some highlights: [*]He talks of Defensive-Offence: How India should not be reactive only and what it can ...

Re: Sunni Terrorist Fragments of Unstable Pakistan - 10 Oct

No b@st@rd ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making the other poor dumb b@st@rd die for his country. George S. Patton Patton did not actually say that. Except in the movie He is attributed to have said something very close. As per Wiki: ..... One notable difference occurred in t...

Re: Narendra Modi vs the Dynasty: Contrasting Ideas of India

Here are a couple of articles that I have not seen posted in this thread. First, some interesting comments from a NaMo biographer: What is it that fascinates you most about Modi? I don’t think I have ever come across a better administrator or anybody so completely possessed with enthusiasm for what ...

Re: Narendra Modi vs the Dynasty: Contrasting Ideas of India

I agree with those that say it was a trap that NM skillfully avoided. Look at a possible sequence of events: [*] SG makes a speech where she terms the BJP as 'zeher ki kheti' [*] NaMo speaks about Muzaffarnagar, his words are twisted as a call to communal violence [*] Some days later a riot breaks o...

Re: Statewide and National runup to 2014 General elections

The AAP is a diversion, a feint, informally supported by the Congress, and more openly by its allies, the MSM. The effort is to divert attention, and public discourse, away from Congress and its multifarious misdeeds and onto a fight between the BJP and AAP. Remember, the BJP's strategic aims are: *...
