Re: Indian Missiles and Munitions Discussion

Also all this talk about hidden nukes in tunnel networks makes me wonder why?

Besides what if they are not hiding nukes there. what if these are conventional weaponery stockpiling, to facilitate their idea of a cold start?

Re: Indian Missiles and Munitions Discussion

Shyamd ji, all 60 times it was used in a conventional role. :)

On a more serious note, its really strange how people ask for mortgage of a 3.5 lac rupee car for financing a vehicle loan or argue over a credit card charge, but an NFU is bought and sold at face value.
