Re: Afghanistan News & Discussion - April 2016

why such a big stick right after a carrot (didn't they recently give pukis some money)? Seems like another deal making in play. Makes sense that if massa is serious about iran, they need to be in afghanistan. And if they are getting into cpec, then they might as well have a base in gwadar.

Is this your Stockholm syndrome? Though abusive, he opened the window and let me see? - sure we all saw his bias. And it will be a mistake to treat it as insight just because he was (ahem) non-indian.

Re: Indian Sports and Entertainment Industry

Well my argument was (and is) 1) skill matters 2) serve alone doesn't win and 3) wider range of players will win when wider range of players participate at that level.

Studying their game, the r&d over dalai lama visit is 100x more than what we did for their investments in PoK. I mean there is no == between these two acts. They are creating false equivalence here and are jumping up and down lying over and over again to prove that lie until it becomes the truth.

Height advantage depends on style of play is what I mean. Players too tall have mobility issues - eg: isner, karlovic,etc. but they have some of the highest no. of aces. All I am saying is innovations in racket tech, gripping techniques, playing style, etc. the height advantage has reduced in tennis...

if z and p get onto some agreement, 11 is in trouble. Without that agreement, I am not sure z has the balls to hit 11 at this point because rest of the allies have become (at least look like) dhimmis. And z will have to bankroll the entire effort. so not happening imo.
