Re: Is the Army Covering Up? From India Today

The story that is emerging is that there was insufficient analysis or attention to intelligence even when the top brass was faced with mounting evidence that something was amiss. Whatever the story, it must be fully revealed to the Indian public and then let them judge, who was culpable. I feel ther...

Re: IAF Scores a Kill - the actual story!!!

what does the word 'formate' mean ?. It does not say explicitly here that they signalled the intruder aircraft to follow the interceptors or have I missed something.<P>Kaushal

Re: A few questions on LTTE, Saudi Arabia

In no western historical reporting, mamorials, celebrations, etc. of WWI, WWII, etc. have I seen any acknowledgement of the contribution of Indian forces. <P>This is deliberate and intended to hush up the contribution of Indians to WW II. Large numbers died in WW I also. The casualties were 180,000...

Re: A few questions on LTTE, Saudi Arabia

They did not engage in the kind of anti-western rhetoric in the UN that made India so unpopular with the UK and US, and they certainly didn't sign any treaty of friendship with the USSR <BR>This is typical Western obfuscation, putting the cart before the horse. When I looked at the calendar the las...

Raghu, in answer to your question, why was Sri Lanka not partitioned like India, read the 2nd part of my 'Tortuous relationship', this is of course a shameless plug.<P>One of the motivations of the partition was always, at least IMO, the playing of the Great Game, to thwart Russia and later the Sovi...

Re: A few questions on LTTE, Saudi Arabia

On Point e) it should be obvious even to the blind that there is no religious freedom in Saudi Arabia, if you are not a Mussalman. My uncle had his BG with him as he always does, the Customs officer took it out, tore it up and stomped on it underfoot. Pretty medieval and barbaric if you ask me.<P>As...

Re: A few questions on LTTE, Saudi Arabia

b. IPKF decision - One speculation is that the Israelis were getting involved on the Sinhala side at the behest of the US. So, to pre-empt the potential of later US/Israeli involvement in Sri Lanka, the Indians thought up the IPKF. In those days, there was not much cooperation between the Israelis a...

Re: Wangchuk's war - Must read

Ladakhi, who are a close cousin of the Tibetans. Many Indians have a strange notion that everybody with Mongoloid racial features is not part of India. In fact 20 to 30% of India carries Mongoloid racial stock. If you read a history of Tibet the connections with India starting with Padmasambhava wer...
