I also want to make you aware of a public education project I am developing that focuses on India’s space warfare pursuits. It is called the India Space Weaponization Project: http://bit.ly/IndiaProject
I hope that you find my articles interesting, and that they raise awareness of India’s rapidly evolving dual-use technologies and military space systems. I would like to emphasize that the deployment of these military space systems will only serve to undermine India's security. I also believe the United States is supplying India with dual-use technology to fuel the US defense industry, but more importantly the US is setting India up to be a proxy rival to China.
With best wishes to all.
Well some of the conclusions of the 'project' are:
We must ask ourselves: What has India done in the 35 years since its first nuclear test to earn the trust of the international community once again? Even more so, what has it done to earn the trust of the international community since sanctions were placed upon it again in 1998 for even more nuclear tests?
In an India rife with poverty and an archaic caste system, where only 1 percent of Indians work in high technology, the question must be asked: How do investments in military technology improve the common person’s life? At the current pace, long before poverty is relieved, a dangerous arms race between China and India will begin. India is ultimately investing in a process that will contribute to the undermining its region’s and its people’s security, while ignoring the fundamental needs of its citizens.
Thanks for your concern We are not aware that we were desperate to gain the 'trust' of the 'international community'. Yes, though we are giving the US the chance to redeem herself in our eyes. Yes we have poverty, malnutrition etc, but our investments in military technology thus far has actually accelerated the decline in poverty levels in our country. So I think the solution is to increase military spending to get rid of poverty all together.
