Re: 2019 General Elections News and Discussion

KLD, Thanks for the last line.
There are two chains/constraints on India.Both reinforce each other.
One external is Pakistan.
Other internal is Congress.

2014 made Congress irrelevant and managed to confine Pakistan to minor irritant.
2019 will definitely get rid of both constraints on India.

Indian High Commission attack means ISI is behind this. The church bombings are a diversion.
If Pak is involved then Cheen and Rajapakse can't be aloof.

I ithink this is SL's 26/11 multiple level.of attacks.

Now I understand those extensive trials of the Krasnopol shells. The shell does not have the energy to be guided precisely. Besides the blast is not enough. Needs 4 to 6 hits. Better to hit with a SAAW sized warhead.
