Re: India-US Strategic News and Discussion

I have seen you posting regularly from Foriegn Policy, but have shown that you can't judge things in a broader context. So please keep the Lahori Logic Prize with you.

Re: India-US Strategic News and Discussion

UN forces doesn't mean only India/Pak etc. When the place is strategically important, NATO itself will come in the garb of UN peace keeping. There was a leader who thought exactly like you do. His name was Saddam. The Pakistan that time was Kuwait. We know how it ended. People who don't learn will l...

Re: India-US Strategic News and Discussion

When the sanctions come from UN in the form of trade/financial sanctions for not de-nuking and/or allowing UN peace keeping force in the flash point, the sanctions will have to be obeyed by all countries. We have to make sure that such scenario doesn't happen and Vajpayee did a good job at that. If ...

Re: India-US Strategic News and Discussion

Why not? Relations with US and Russia are a zero-sum game. One of them will be with us. This is a wrong assumption. If so, Russia would have vetoed Gaddafi sanctions.

Re: India-US Strategic News and Discussion

Most of the dangerous anti-India UN sanctions were vetoed by Soviet Union. We can't count on that everytime.

BTW, US MNCs are extension of the establishment. Also don't forget the moment when Indian corporations were pressing GoI against operation parakram.

Re: Out-of-India - From Theory to Truth

Problem I see is that westerners are studying Indians after thorough dissection, and Indians don't do the same on westerners. Even in BRF, pischo analysts studied pakis thoroughly, but haven't yet started that on westerners. We need to study people who study us to find out what their true studies are.

Also, there has to be some form of give and take. GCC should also provide non-employment visa on arrival for Indians for few days, for ECNR passport holders.
