    Dear Friends,
    Russia has shown guts to put its neighbours in their place.First Georgia and now Ukraine.There are lots of similarities between India's and Russia's neighbours. Both are heavily dependent on their big neighbours , but flirt with enemies and oppurtunists when it suits them. Its high time we too followed Russia's footsteps in Srilanka and Maldives.Just as Russia uses the logic of safety of ethnic Russians in Crimea, we to should use the issue of Tamils' safety in Srilanka to the same end.

    Well there can be a elaborate answer to this, but picking up the easiest point out, I would answer, not till the day India has a veto in UNSC.

    I don't think so , If Indra Gandhi had opted military invasion instead of LTTE insurgent option in 70's things might have happened

    But majority of Srilankan population will oppose Indian agression & the International reaction will be negative & sanction will follow in big way.

    In UN Russia has a bigger say being an permanent member , In case of India that is not the case

    We should think of Azad kashmir , Gilgit & Baltisthan , Aksin chin instead of Sri lanka

    WRONG question Mate

    Let us ask about the thing more likely to happen

    1 Can Kashmir assembly pass a resolution requesting Pak and China
    liberate them

    2 Can Pakis and Chinese start a TWO front war to
    LIBERATE Kashmir and South Tibet ie Arunachal Pradesh

    When it comes down to hardcore interests, anything possible. India can play the SL card. We already have done in the past with BD.

    What matters for me is how will we get back what is Indian territories #PoK #AksaiChin

    If we want to do that, we should support Russia on Ukraine issue. But we don't have guts to do that with SL what Indira did with BD, at least UPA can't do that. :nono:

    India cant do such because India is not permanent member of UNO, Russia is, just bring any proposal against Russia, Russia will veto it. To do such thing we need to keep 1 permanent UNO member always like we did on 1971.

    Where and when?:frusty:

    Akhand Bharat is only solution of Subcontinent.:truestory: Religious conversion started the problem, religious conversion will end. Pakistan and Bangladesh should convert to Hinduism and Buddhism.

    There is no historic basis for India's claims to northern SL. We could instead open our borders with Sri Lanka, Nepal-style. It will solve both India's and SL's Tamil issues, without disturbing sovereignty.

    We could, instead, bring Bangladesh into our fold. Our demographics can tolerate a shock now, it may not be able to do that 20 years into the future. Acceding Bangladesh, or even opening up borders with it, will greatly benefit our North Eastern states. There will be an exodus, from BD, but that should dissipate into other states fairly quickly.

    If only Bangladesh can demonstrate that it's not going to be a Wahabi armpit, and believes in social progress, I'm all for reintegration with India. The recent clampdown on war-criminals masquerading as religious leaders is encouraging.

    Is this the situation?

    India would never do anything US would do under any circumstances.

    India would do anything Russia would do, if it could.

    Seems better if India charts its own course.

    We weren't a super power when we tore Pakistan a new one in 1971, either. All we need is a veto-buddy at UNSC

    For arguement sake let us discuss this likely scenario

    1 We can NOT annex entire Sri Lanka Even Russia has ONLY annexed Crimea and Nothing more

    2 At the most we can take North Eastern part for re settling Tamil refugees

    3 Now what happens next Will SL take it lying down

    SL will immediately invite Chinese And Pakis to establish missile ; air and naval bases

    And since we will be doing this for our Tamil brothers
    we will have to face SIMILAR demands to give FREEDOM to Kashmiri Muslims

    As they say what is good for the goose is good for the gander

    So guys please dont ROCK the Boat

    We have established Control in Kashmir after spending a LOT of Blood and Treasure

    Dont throw it away

    @tarunraju

    Absolutely CRAZY and suicidal idea

    Please read the following article

    http://www.foreignpolicy.com/articles/2011/06/20/fortress_india

    We are spending lots of money and manpower to keep the Bangladeshi scum
    out and you want them to merge with India

    This Excerpt represents the FEELINGS of West Bengal Hindus

    " By 2009, Indian Home Minister P. Chidambaram was declaring that Bangladeshis have "no business to come to India." The opposition BJP isn't rolling out the welcome mat either:

    Tathagata Roy, the party's leader in the Bangladesh-bordering state of West Bengal, has called for lining the border with antipersonnel mines. If the predictions come true for immigration from Bangladesh, Roy says, India's population of 900 million Hindus will have no choice but "to convert or jump into the sea."

    This will be the most sucidicle thing any SL politician can do. Once the jobless Indians piling up on SL there will be no place for any Sri Lankan to live or do work. Besides those Indians will spoil SL beauty that we have protected for centuries.

    So count me on this. This will never happen.
