The Englishstan's propoganda against India. Their aid is only on paper and all the money is just going to the U.K companies. No wonder the aid is not cut. The GOI must ask Londonistan to stop these kind of propoganda being launched against India and say "No need for any aid, thank you". E...

This thread is turning out to be a 90 vs. Arjun "THU THU MEIN MEIN"

one last noob question. If an assault has to be launched into enemy territory, how far is the objective? I keep seeing RYK which seems to be a City not too far from the Indo-Pak border.
