    How is it that defending one's nation becomes a strange blunder?

    I am amused at the stupidity that journalist spin so that they can fill their assignment of sensationalism.

    It was a folly when Hitler started atomic bomb research and Manhattan project. After that, anything goes.

    India acquiring nukes is not about China & Pak but about being at the high table of other powers. India didn't want to be left out. Today the world has accepted India as a nuke power in spite of NPT.

    Never mind people who argue against it. We will dismantle nukes when others do it

    Due to this folly, the Americans are intent on selling us their cutting edge P-8I plane, besides other things, if we had no nukes, the Americans would have told us to phuc off.......and China border problems exist, but earlier in 1965,1967 and 1971 , China had given us stern warnings of "teaching a lesson", like some warlord from old Bruce Lee movie, now the talk is much measured and carefully worded - whay?

    man sitting in china, he knows, i hurtee, he also hurtee.........so no hurtee
