Hi, Thanks for the compliment Ramana. The Pakistanis keep falling for the DDM cr*p that Parakram was a failure. They miss the following points: 1) The equivalence between India and Pakistan is no longer sustainable - even within Pakistan itself. Everyone in the world increasingly sees Pakistan as a ...

I try to put myself in Musharraf's shoes and ask myself who would I sacrifice if India were to put the pinch on me? I would sacrifice the shooters. They are easily replaceable. I would not sacrifice the intelligence officers and the principal officers as they are very hard to replace - you will have...

Hi JCage,

Thanks for the prompt reply.

Shoot for March 30 and pick photos carefully (don't put Su-30 photos and the like - there is enough of that out there already).

That way caption load will be minimum.

email me at breadomlette at yahoo dot com for further discussion.
