You don't have enough ability to knock out enough economic supply chain. The only Indian missiles that can reach China are strategic missiles, they don't have enough accuracy or cost effectiveness to take out bridges. You're very confident about that. Good for you :) It's indeed hard to hit Donghai...

You're right that there are many paths to winning a war, but history indicates that conventional bombs on civilian targets is pretty low on the list of ways to winning a war. There are many other ways, however, as war isn't just army A vs. army B at location C. For one, in a war each side would att...

I get the feeling that the price rises attributed to GST is a lie. Some food shops are actually under reporting revenue by as much as 50% to lower tax incurred. I've seen this in 2 shops in bangalore So if they buy 100 kg of food, they ask the supplier for an invoice of 50kg and pay for the other 5...
