the air-force is the only viable strategic option in the NE agains the chinese. that is because the chinese troops have a better supply line thanks to their railway. we have no railway for our troops. in fact we barely have a road - so we need the planes.
no planes now - they have the cipher !!!!
indira was the worst disaster to befell india. worse than aurangzeb, worse even than her papa-nehru. no other "democratic" person has ever done so much to subvert institutions and weaken the national fabric. when i think of Indira - I think of the massacre of the sikhs at the hands of kkkangress goons. a true pogrom if ever there was one in India.
the only good thing she did was to stand up to those war-crime bullies nixon and kissinger. for that she has my salute. alas no Indian politician since has had the cojones
Given that the spineless Kaangress govt will see Indian rivers dry up after China dams them from their side, we'd better invest more effort into desalination technologies to mitigate the looming water crisis.
We can see that the Maoists are playing a game of "politique du pire" and could care less about resolving social issues. Violence is their first preference and not their last resort.
India has Predator-type drones in its arsenal, and it should use them for surgical strikes against the Maoist leadership. They should be taught a painful lesson that terrorism is not an entertaining leisure pursuit, but a dangerous activity with severe consequences.

this is just like the stinking desert has become the 'holy land' [sic] -- truth by repeated assertion.

India's lonely furrow
Wednesday, October 21, 2009 22:45 IST
We have never been in this situation before. Just a couple of years
back, in the last years of the Bush regime, it seemed as if an Indo-US
geopolitical alliance was all we needed to move up to the big league.
But enter Obama and all bets are off.
The US embrace is no longer as warm as we imagined it to be.
Meanwhile, the India-China relationship is fraying at the edges;
Pakistan is getting into a Talibanesque mess; Nepal is ambivalent, and
the Maoists positively hostile to us; Sri Lanka is cocky after
subduing its Tamil Tigers; and Bangladesh is unlikely to do anything
to keep its people from spilling over into India or turn overtly
In short we have no real friends anywhere -- neither in the
neighbourhood nor in the wider world of power blocs. How then are we
going to protect our national interests?
One thing is for sure. Lazy diplomacy is not going to help. Nor will
ambivalence about defence preparedness.
We have, in the past, put too much faith in moral posturing,
influenced by the likes of Nehru and Gandhi. But the emerging scenario
needs a Chanakya, not woolly thinking, as every country's foreign
policy is driven by realpolitik. China is bashing up Tibetans and
Uighurs, but has the friendliest of relationships with Pakistan, the
epicentre of jihadi terrorism.

The Indo-US strategic tie-up has served as the key instigation in China's hardening stance towards India
Brahma Chellaney Mint October 26, 2009
The India-China relationship has entered choppy waters due to a perceptible hardening in the Chinese stance. Anti-India rhetoric in the state-run Chinese media has intensified, even as China has stepped up military pressure along the disputed Himalayan frontier through frequent cross-border incursions. Beijing also has resurrected its long dormant claim to Arunachal Pradesh.
The more muscular Chinese stance clearly is tied to the new US-India strategic partnership, symbolized by the nuclear deal and deepening military cooperation. As former US president George W. Bush declared in his valedictory speech, "We opened a new historic and strategic partnership with India."
The Barack Obama administration, although committed to promoting that strategic partnership, has been reluctant to take New Delhi's side in any of its disputes with Beijing. This has emboldened China to up the ante against India.
Indeed, the present pattern of border provocations, new force deployments and mutual recriminations is redolent of the situation that prevailed 47 years ago when China—taking advantage of the advent of the Cuban missile crisis, which brought the world to the brink of a nuclear Armageddon—routed the unprepared Indian military in a surprise two-front aggression.
Man jailed over racist attack on Indian student
MEX COOPEROctober 23, 2009
Racist attack ... Indian student Sukhraj Singh, 28, was in a coma for 15 days after being brutally bashed. Photo: Michael Clayton-Jones
A gang of racist youths nearly killed a man during an armed rampage in an Indian grocery store in Melbourne's west for the "sheer thrill" of the attack, a judge said today.
Drunk and carrying wooden planks ripped up from a nearby bus stop seat, the seven youths raided the Impex shop in Sunshine yelling "are you Indian?" as they randomly struck their victims on December 1 last year, the County Court heard today.
Indian student Sukhraj Singh, 28, was in a coma for 15 days and will suffer the effects of a severe acquired brain injury for the rest of his life after being beaten during the assault.
Eight men were punched and hit with the weapons and most suffered minor injuries but Mr Singh was beaten unconscious and spent months in hospital and rehabilitation after being struck three times to the head and body.
In sentencing one of the attackers, Zakarie Hussein, 21, of Braybrook, Judge Pamela Jenkins said today the group had deliberately targeted victims of Indian ethnicity in the "unprovoked rampage".
The youths had been drinking beer in a park for about four hours before they went to the store in City Place just after 6.30pm where two of the teens began a racist argument with two customers, the court heard.
About five minutes later, the pair returned with their friends, most armed with wooden bars and one with a fluorescent light tube, and began smashing up the store and indiscriminately striking customers and staff as they yelled "are you Indian?" and "bloody Indians, f--- off".
The shop's cash register was stolen and the loot divided up among the offenders. Hussein received about $15.
In a victim impact statement tendered to the court, Mr Singh said metal plates had been inserted into his face, he had shed up to 15 kilograms and been left with lumps and scars on his head from the assault.
"I am lucky to be alive, all my friends and family thought I was going to die," Mr Singh said in the statement.
He said he suffered from dizzy spells and had undergone counselling after being plagued by nightmares and flashbacks.
The court heard his injuries had been potentially life-threatening and meant he had been unable to work for five months, may not be able to complete his studies and was too frightened to live alone.
Hussein had pleaded guilty to armed robbery, recklessly causing serious injury, and six counts of recklessly causing injury.
Judge Jenkins said Hussein had not used his wooden weapon but had planned to before being knocked out of the way by a co-offender.
She said the victims had tried to cower from their attackers and had done nothing to provoke the attack.
"Your victims presented no threat to you or your co-offenders whatsoever. They did not provoke you, they did not fight back and indeed they made every effort to escape from the assaults," she said.
"Notwithstanding these circumstances the victims were beaten apparently for the sheer thrill, Mr Singh being subjected to a particularly savage beating with the terrible consequences for him."
Judge Jenkins said the assault was among a number of racist attacks that had rightly provoked international and local community outrage and should be condemned.
"Short of becoming prisoners in their own homes, there is little potential victims can do to prevent such attacks," she said.
Judge Jenkins sentenced Hussein to four-and-a-half years' jail with a minimum non-parole period of two years.
Hussein, dressed in a black suit and white shirt and supported in court by family, bit his nails throughout the hearing and stood with his hands clasped while he was sentenced to serve his time in an adult prison.
The court heard he had migrated to Australia from Somalia, aged about six, with his older brother and mother, who were both later diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
His younger sister had died from malaria shortly before the family left Africa where they spent time in a refugee camp in Kenya.
The court heard Hussein had experienced a difficult childhood and by his final year of school was drinking and taking drugs daily.
His defence had argued Hussein played only a minor role in the attack, had been drunk after consuming about 10 beers, and was remorseful.
But Judge Jenkins said despite Hussein not having hit any of the victims he had entered the store armed with the intention of hurting someone and had yelled encouragement to his friends.
She said it was "particularly shameful" that the Somali immigrant had vented his rage on international students and other young immigrants.
"There is no question that the offending constituted an extremely violent and indiscriminate rampage by armed youths exhibiting the worst traits of a pack mentality," Judge Jenkins told Hussein.
Hussein had prior convictions including, for robbery, assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest.
Four of Hussein's co-offenders, aged between 14 and 17 at the time of the attack, had already received 12-month sentences in a youth detention centre and a fifth teen received a 12-month youth supervision order.
The Director of Public Prosecutions Jeremy Rapke has appealed against the sentences, arguing they are "manifestly inadequate".
The Court of Appeal is yet to hand down its judgment. A sixth offender, who has pleaded guilty in the Children's Court, will be sentenced following the result of the appeal.

My story started when I was 16 years old living in Handsworth, we had just finished our last GCSE exams. To celebrate, we all decided to go to a bhangra gig during the day, as we knew we would not have been allowed to go in the night. There were 4 of us, best of friends, we decided to go, although we knew we would get into trouble if are parents found out, but we thought that we "only live once" and as it was a special occasion, so we went.

China Expands Cyberspying in U.S., Report Says
Congressional Advisory Panel in Washington Cites Apparent Campaign by Beijing to Steal Information From American Firms
By SIOBHAN GORMAN
WASHINGTON -- The Chinese government is ratcheting up its cyberspying operations against the U.S., a congressional advisory panel found, citing an example of a carefully orchestrated campaign against one U.S. company that appears to have been sponsored by Beijing.
The unnamed company was just one of several successfully penetrated by a campaign of cyberespionage, according to the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission report to be released Thursday. Chinese espionage operations are "straining the U.S. capacity to respond," the report concludes.

The Atlanticist-led Left are increasingly impatient with their flunky Obama for not responding quickly enough to their tugs on his puppet strings. In their impatience, they are increasingly taunting him to "Man Up" and push through all their hardline leftist goals. An editorial in the WSJ addresses this schoolyard baiting.

While we might wish to dismiss any unfortunate incidents of this type as propaganda, the reality is that such feudal exploitation is a direct result of the agrarian economy. In the agrarian economy, land ownership is king. If you don't own land, then you get trod upon.
One of the advantages of an industrial economy is that factory workers can earn a higher wage without having to own the factory. And factories themselves don't take up as much land, which is itself a scarce commodity.
Without a transition to a more industrialized economy, India will always face class tensions between the landed and the landless, the haves and the have-nots. Additionally, I think that the collective farming or co-operative farming model might also help to buffer individual families against economic pressures. Better than having to sell your own wife.

So what about the much-vaunted statements by Pakistan that its nuclear facilities are secure from fundamentalists? Not looking very believable these days.
Japan seems to be increasingly toeing China's line these days, which is making the US nervous. But what does this portend for India? If Japan and China join hands to become founding members of an East Asian Economic Community, will India end up left out and always begging from the outside to be let in, like Turkey? We'd better watch out, or we too could end up on Japan's 'no' list.
STATEMENT OF DR. SUBRAMANIAN SWAMY, JANATA PARTY PRESIDENT,ON CHINA AFTER HIS FOUR DAYS VISIT TO BEIJING
1.. I returned yesterday from a four day visit to Beijing, China, where I had gone to address the Asian African Development Research Institute [AADRI] of the State Council of the Chinese Government on "South Asia and Sino-Indian Relations". The State Council is the equivalent of India's Cabinet, and AADRI is its think tank that prepares policy documents for the Chinese government.
2.. I also met Mr. Ai Ping, Director General of the International Department of the Chinese Communist Party and had a detailed discussion with him on the current state of Sino-Indian relations and how it could be improved.
3.. At present there is possibility that India and China may be sucked into a serious border conflict by miscalculation and self-fulfilling hype. Such a war will end in a stalemate, and damage the economies of both nations.
4.. Much of the hostility to India in the Chinese media is seen in Communist Party organs such Peoples Daily and Global Times newspapers. This is claimed to be in reaction to Indian media's "false anti-China" reporting that Chinese allege is motivated by the Indian government sources. In India much of the hostile anti-China reporting is based on events such as border incursions by China, which events used to sporadically happen earlier but did not come to media's knowledge and was not reported. These local events, Indian media hold are directed by Chinese government.
5.. Both these presumptions are wrong. Hence, the Prime Ministers of the two countries should use the "hotline" set up recently, before the Bangalore BRIC meeting, and clear the air. The two PMs should see to it that media reports do not generate a hysteria in the public, which could spiral into an armed conflict on the border by miscalculation on both sides.
6.. Border incursions have been made by units of Chinese internal security armed police and not by Chinese army as reported in Indian media. Moreover, India has now moved a squadron of Sukhoi jets to Tezpur and strengthened Ladakh cantonment. Hence, a rational Chinese strategist would recognize that an armed border attack today will not be of the same result as in 1962.
7.. The situation has spiraled because Indian opinion today unfortunately is dominated by the trauma of 1962 and the public perception of a repeat "Chinese betrayal" when in fact 1962 border war was the outcome of the foolishness of Prime Minister Nehru in failing to first develop defence capability before asking the army to "throw the Chinese out". Our jawans had to fight on the icy hills with tennis shoes. To hide such truths is why the government is still refusing to provide the Hendersen-Brookes Inquiry Report under the RTI.
8.. In China too, the people and Chinese media exhibit the same kind of trauma with regard to Japan's alleged militarism, despite Japan being one of the most peace loving countries today. This is because of the savage invasion and occupation of China by Japan in 1937-45 period.
9.. India has accepted [vide agreements signed by Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi in 1988, and by Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee in 2003, thus making this acceptance bi-partisan] that the border has to be negotiated and settled on the ground. At the moment there exists no legal border. Till such a border is negotiated, border crossings by China's Tibet police and by our ITBP are inevitable. The media should report it, but the people should not get into a hysteria.
10.. However, our defence preparedness for a possible Chinese attack should always be up to date, even as our foreign policy should strive for friendly relations with China. India and China will have to create a new global order as two very large and fast progressing countries. We should not allow ourselves to be derailed by micro events but be guided by macro and global perspectives in Sino-Indian relations.
11.. I urge Prime Minister Manmohan Singh not to be intimidated by jingoism in the media but to boldy and frankly talk on the hotline, and discuss with visiting Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiaobao in Bangalore next week on how the two nation can moderate the current negative hype, and get back to developing a productive strategic partnership with each other, especially against the common terrorist threat arising from the Taliban ascendancy in Pakistan and Afghanistan, and well as the fragility of the global financial architecture.
"We have to face the fact that Christianity has been and remains a cult of devil-worship. That is why its adherents see only devils and demons wherever they go. There is no other explanation for the hallucinations of Varthema and Company. The fact that the Devil is described as God in the Bible should make no difference."

The "Love Jihad" – by Stephen Brown
Posted By Stephen Brown On October 16, 2009 @ 12:13 am In FrontPage
To the "hard jihad" of Muslim terrorism and the non-violent, "stealth jihad" challenging Western societies, the oxymoron "love jihad" can now be added. But this latest form of Islamist aggression has nothing to do with love but rather, like its soulmates, with hatred for the infidel and women.
The love jihad's modus operandi involves a heartless strategy of luring vulnerable girls and young women to convert to Islam by feigned love and promises of marriage. But instead of marital bliss, the girls unwittingly trapped in its deceitful web usually wind up in the hands of Muslim fundamentalist organizations.
The south-western state of Kerela in India  is the latest place where this perverse practice has raised its ugly head. Authorities in this state of 32 million are holding in jail two young Muslim men who stand accused of "luring" two non-Muslim university students with promises of marriage "for the purpose of conversion."
In court, both students testified the two men "trapped" them and forced them into converting. One told the court she fell in love with one of the men, a senior student at her college, and eloped with him. But instead of the expected marriage, she and the other woman were taken to a Muslim center where they were subjected to Islamic extremist propaganda.
The case has created such concern that Kerela's High Court ordered the police to investigate the organization responsible for the conversions, the Campus Front, which serves as the student wing of the Muslim fundamentalist organization, the Popular Front of India. It is believed more than 4,000 Hindu and Christian young women in Kerela have converted to Islam in the last six months.
The Times of India  reports that Kerela's Hindu and Christian religious authorities are so alarmed at this development that they are cooperating to "combat the 'social evil' which. . .is hitting their respective communities hard." It is suspected that college girls and working women are especially targeted.
"It's shocking but it is happening. Many Christian families are getting affected," said a member of the Kerala Catholic Bishops Council.
One report states the "jihad Romeos" in Kerela are given cell phones, bikes and fashionable clothes to accomplish their sinister mission. They have two weeks to find a girl of another religion and six months to convert her to Islam. If the girl shows no interest within two weeks, they are to leave her and find another.
For every conversion, the men also receive a monetary reward. The money for the "love jihad" in Kerala is reported to come from "foreign sources."
If a recruiter does marry his convert, he is encouraged to have four children with her. Some believe this capability to bear offspring is the reason why young women are targeted. With conversion, their reproductive powers are taken away from a competing religion and increase instead the Muslim extremist demographic.
But while the term love jihad may be new, the tactic is already a known one. In the 1990s, Sikhs in England believed young women in their community were being targeted for conversion. Young Muslim men looking for prey were even thought to have attended parties for young Sikhs, while pretending to be Sikhs themselves.
Sometimes, however, the jihad Romeos in England used a more brutal approach. A story in the Daily Mail  two years ago stated that police were targeting such Muslim extremists and working with universities against "aggressive conversions." These involved Hindu and Sikh girls being beaten up and terrorized by the Muslim men they were dating until they converted.
The Hindu Forum of Britain, the story says, claimed hundreds of Sikh and Hindu girls were victims of such vicious intimidation. Some even had to leave their university to escape their tormentors.
"Some girls are petrified because they are constantly being phoned up, having their door knocked on," a Hindu Forum member said at the time.
But the best evidence that this form of jihad has been in operation for some time comes from a former Muslim extremist, who converted to Christianity. In the book, Why We Left Islam, a compilation of testimonies by former Muslims who left their faith, the unidentified apostate gives a powerful account of his days as a jihad Romeo in Egypt who targeted Coptic Christian girls.
Like in Kerela, the former Muslim testifies that money was paid for conversions and that it came from outside the country. And the higher the educational and social status of the victim's family, the more money the jihad Romeo received.
Unlike in India though, the recruiters would parade the converted girl through the streets, playing music and waving flags, while yelling "Allah Akbar." The goal, he said, was to humiliate the Christians, especially the men, and dishonor their families in a country where the women are the family's honor. But such parades were banned in 1985.
All kinds of tricks, he writes, were used to convert the girls. From outright expressions of love and attending their churches to trapping them in moral scandals, everything was fair game. In this, the extremists were often helped by young Muslim women who identified likely targets, encouraged the Christian girl in the "relationship," and would even help set up the morally compromising situations.
While ruining the lives of others, the former Muslim states he thought he was serving his religion, since Muslims "were in a perpetual war with the 'filthy infidels'." He lived for three years with one woman he had converted, tormenting her mercilessly, while converting seven other Christian women during that time.
In essence, the love jihad is a form of demographic aggression. Like the "stealth jihad", which employs political activism to achieve Islamist aims in Western societies, it employs deception and is viewed as a useful tactic in bringing about Islamic world domination.
That, however, is of little solace to the many precious young women whose lives it has destroyed.
