Re: Indian Space Program: News & Discussion - Sept 2016

Arshyam, Spacex, Boeing and Lockheed/ Martin are all building capsules. Astronaut teams for each have been chosen and include Sunita Williams. As much as this forum enjoys poking fun at, the rumors of the United States losing their ability to transport astronauts is greatly exaggerated. This include...

Re: Levant crisis - III

Singha, we = America. Believe it or not, many Indians live in the US and are quite content supporting our cultural homeland, India, and our adopted homeland, the United States. And there are quite a few of those on BRF. I don't see the corollary of Indian Russians, i.e. Indians who live in Russia on...

Re: Maldives Civil-Military Issues

I think the key point here is that the pain threshold hasn't been reached in Male. No one has died, no mass riots and even demonstrations have been competing goon squads between Yameen and Nasheed supporters. If things heat up substantially, then I think more options are on the table. I think that's...

Something may give but I'd bet my last red cent that even Putin is more sane than some of the advocacy in this room. No nuclear war, tactical or otherwise is happening.
