    Correct. I believe the previous PM, Dr Singh, benefited significantly from being associated with the US from an electoral perspective. Modi may do so as well, I believe he has met Obama 5 times...

    Don't necessarily disagree with that considering how many Indian officials are still myopic Russophiles, but things are changing from both sides, Indian and Western. Note Modi is (surprisingly)...

    Forcing the FMCT on the Pakistanis through a carrot and stick approach sounds like a good idea actually- they are likely to strongly resist such a policy but I suspect there will be a latent threat...

    Deterrence is not warfighting- in nuclear terms- but the IA is building a Strike Corps on the border, and the IAF plans to deploy Rafales, Apaches and other assets there also. That is what the GoI is...

    Sir,

    I was referring to Sukhois and Rafales when getting first look, first shot against MiG's, effecting a mission kill and enabling them to get at Chinese AWACS. The Indian AWACS will be...

    Even a mission kill is adequate to keep the PLAAF away from Indian AWACS, which will also be protected by Tejas et al.
    Light CAS aircraft like Tejas can bomb Chinese columns while Rafale and MKI's...

    The origin of the missiles is irrelevant, and ABM production can be expanded. Strikes by cruise missiles and PGM's can enable the Indians to eliminate Chinese TELARS. Combine with natural failure...

    1,000 Brahmos to be produced for domestic use by the end of the decade, with more cheap Nirbhay TLAM equivalents on the way. Evens out the numbers a little bit- and the cheap mass production Chinese...

    Sending young pilots up there to die like that may have been viable in the days of the Korean War, but I doubt the use of men as cannon fodder in MiG-21 screens would be politically palatable to the...

    [QUOTE=OOE2_test;992301]I strongly discourage anyone thinking DACT represents real world combat. It is meant to solve technical and tactical problems; not representation of a real strike package.

    The Tejas is not perfect but it is a decent start, considering it can fire LGB's, carry Litening pods and R-73's. That's all it really needs to do in a Kargil style war, which is likely the only type...

    The JSF would likely not be available before 2020. Scrapping the MMRCA only makes sense if the money is ploughed into local manufacturing and R & D, otherwise India gains nothing in the long run,...

    This looks like the best decision possible under the circumstances. It helps partially stem shortfalls in the IAF and buys time to resolve the issues over the remaining 108 aircraft to be made in...

    While I agree that the horrific nature of the above case merited the level of attention, I was referring to the way that seemingly every major rape incident in India since then is being reported by...

    It has been over 2 years since the incident, and it almost seems as if each new case makes the Western media in a big way. This doesn't happen with rape cases in the West- the UK is in the midst of...

    I have to question the incessant highlighting of rapes in India by the media in the West. It seems dodgy, when unfortunately such crimes happen around the world. The fact that the original rape...

    Perhaps not in outcomes, although that really depends on the professionalism of the judiciary, but the potential for mob violence in such high profile cases is there all round the world.

    Not at the behest of the opposition, and not by inviting a foreign leader to criticise the ruling party in Parliament- although that is probably a technical impossibility in the UK system.

    I am against banning media in any way, shape or form except where national security is involved, but I don't think it ought to insert itself into ongoing criminal cases where public sentiment is...
