One hour well spent. Thank you, What clarity of thought!
Excellent. 75% done. Paused to post this quote by Doval from Q&A. Question is about how prepared are Indian security agencies to deal with the fall out from US troop withdrawal from Afghanistan and in general challenges posed by the most dangerous neighborhood -
Indian civilization is prepared to wait for 5 years, 50 years, 500 years. The game is not over till we win.
He also said Indian security establishment is fully capable of handling threats from Pakistan / Taliban. There should be no worries. Just that political will is needed and that we need right people in the political leadership. Mashallah, he got what he wished for.
He also said Pakistan is in a "very very vulnerable" position today and that it faces an existential threat like never before.
On Al-Qaeda, he disagreed with POTUS and GOTUS opinion that Al-Qaeda has been weakened significantly and that end of Al-Qaeda is within US's reach. He says Al-Qaeda problem has been transformed from a central one to a distributed one. Central Al-Qaeda has been weakened, yes but it has given rise to several Al-Qaeda franchises all over the world.
