BTW, geeth, I wasn't going to post this becauze it would get the "UNSC" here up in arms, but having pondered it, I decided to do a totally PEACEFUL "Test".
WITHOUT anyone specific in mind, and NOT being specific to this thread at all, but yes, related to the 6+ series of
threads, I want to say that you have captured the essence of what bothers me too:
How will it have, when people (deleted) are around making fun of your own people..? First you learn to respect your country and its men..THEN tell others to do so. using your own analogy, let me ask - how would a Chinese respond to a TN failure..or a Chandrayaan failure..? will it be the same way you respond? So, there lies the crux of the matter. Ridiculing someone for the sake of it will take your country thus far onlee..Don't crib if other follow you and ridicule your country and its work worldwide. Those countries haven't reached the position they are in now not by being honest and showing their work for peer review. Lot of posturing and bluffing is there as well, but none of their countrymen crib in public so much.
On top of that you want a peer review by the same goras who ridicule your country!
I agree 100% (no kidding) with that. The whole point of spending time on BRF is not to demonstrate one's technical acumen. Anyway that is not an issue with ppl like me whose only claim to Nuclear Physics Expertise is that I slept through a semester of "Nixon"'s class in the Ai-ai-Tee and got an "S" (no comment on what that was) because he was nice and I didn't make calculation errors in e=mc^3 (or was that ^4> Samuel may be able to help there).
The point is to do a little bit of common-sense, logical thinking to counter all the technobabble cra* being put out by the ArmsControl Donks, EnPeeTee snake-oil salesmen, and the sheer volume of stink from the DDM, and point out why everything done in India is not automatically 6-th rate and everything done in the "P-5" bully nations is somehow unquestionaly excellent.
And the main one-point moral I always want to convey is:
DON'T JOIN THE FOREIGNERS TO SCORE POINTS AGAINST THE INDIAN GOVERNMENT. This lesson should have been learned 1,700,000 years ago, but there are still too many who refuse to abide by it. I say, biss on them.
