Re: Breaking News - Osama Bin Laden - killed In Pakistan

Atriji, And what did Chidu get for his troubles. NDTV said, he overreacted and that was not official Govt of India policy. This is a congress Home Minister who has issued an official statement through his office and a news channel says that is not govt policy. Wow! If they have so much power then it...

Re: Breaking News - Osama Bin Laden - killed In Pakistan

No Prabhu, They are not tilting towards India, just following their enlightened self interests. This was a crucial opertaion, they would not have left anything come between them and success. What India should do now is focus on the aid Pak gets. Lobby the US govt and congress and block their aid. Te...

Re: Breaking News - Osama Bin Laden - killed In Pakistan

Rahulji, I dont watch NDTV at all. Infact I try to tell family and friends that they are very biased. I just thought that in this case when the rest of the world's press was roasting the Paki's the Indian media would be atleast as critical. I do take your point about anti India media but Rahul in th...

RajeshA,

Bulls eye. So does the US and west have a long term interest in countering this power beyond getting 'their man'?

Re: Breaking News - Osama Bin Laden - killed In Pakistan

JE Menon, That makes a lot of sense. Very good point. But as you say..why on earth is no one talking about that in the Indian media? They are going out of their way to support the Paki stand. Barkha Dutt was anchoring this show you are refering to. Bith Ajit Doval and KC Singh were there. I wrote to...

Re: Breaking News - Osama Bin Laden - killed In Pakistan

Any views on how this plays out in next stage. Already hearing a clamour for US and UK to speed up withdrawal form Afhganistan now that 'the job is done'. Largely from politicians. Some analysts are saying concentrate on Pak now. What are the implications for India in both scenarios? Implications fo...

Answer to BapatNikhil's Question

Hi Nikhil, I did not see an answer to your question so am responding. The Indian army has a very rich heritage and the uniform idiosyncracies come from different threads and events of this heritage. These borders you see are actually cloth bases (forget the more techincal name) on which the stars ar...

Re: Breaking News - Osama Bin Laden - killed In Pakistan

Sorry the above post was a bit muddled. The disease is catching! Reposting. Biakul, Acharya, I can understand Pakis doing this. It is in their interest. But Chandra and the Indian establishment should not be parroting this. Someone should ask them...ok if Paki nucs negate all our options then why do...

Re: Breaking News - Osama Bin Laden - killed In Pakistan

Well Sai, the problem you refer to will only become worse as demographic trends unfold. So if they are scared now wonder what they will do 20 years from now when the numbers will be much worse. You need to be pragmatic about these things and set the agenda yourself. NDTV's Vikarm Chandra says' Nukes...

Re: Breaking News - Osama Bin Laden - killed In Pakistan

The Germans say these things best. Schadenfreude..... Im loving this. Over to the India media...They will say that CIA Director is wrong and that this is a joint US/PAKI op. Thankfully no one is listenting to them. Guys read the FT and the rest of the world press or watch Sky TV or BBC if you can. T...

Re: Breaking News - Osama Bin Laden - killed In Pakistan

Is it only me or have others also noticed that the Indian media coverage of OBL's execution seems excessively deferential to Pakistan. The whole world is roasting the Pakis and asking legitimate questions about their complicity and the Indians are buying the Paki line that it was a joint op. Have ex...

Re: Newbie Corner & Military Miscellaneous

Hi All, I have been a follower of BR for several years and have formally joined today. To start with my heartiest congratulations on the Pakis being roasted, hammered and rogered in the international media (unlike by the Indian media). I live in London and am thoroughly enjoying the Schadenfreude! H...
