Possibly for the 100th time.
Sanku ji, there is no project anywhere in the world that gets done in time or gets done to the standards + at the time + at the place, comfortable to the user.
Sure, and that is why Arjun is being supported through delays. But then if the threat perception demands that there is no option but to seek other solutions in the interim.
That is all that there is to it.
IA did not have any inkling of Kargil. Kya karen IA ko bhi retire kar dein kya?
No but a number of people up at RAW should have been.
Come this is one part of country trying to reach out to the other part of the country and you are giving us the 'you can't handle the truth' routine. And you are not even half as convincing as Jack Nicholson was.
Hain jee? No, not at all. I am not doing anything like that. In fact quite the opposite.
It is only that this thread seems to resemble the China mil watch thread any time the words Arjun and T 90 come up together. The latest episode of communal wailing is triggered by that amazing
article from Shukla, which if not for unnecessarily heightened sensitives, would be laughed out of the room for the absurdities it contains.
BRFites are unnecessarily ready to feel depressed on this topic. This is not very different from other sagas in India (LCA, INSAS etc etc) for better or for worse -- if we dont get into such extreme reactions on those, there is no need to treat this any differently.
In any case, this got dragged into a different direction, but in this iteration, my starting point was simple, lets give the article its due, which is, consider it a rather puzzling piece of literature, and no more.
