    [TD="colspan: 3"]India has spent billions of dollars on purchases of arms, planes, radars and ships from the US, Russia, Britain, Germany, Israel and France, making it the biggest arms importer in the developing world.

    [TD="colspan: 3"][​IMG]While the world is rapidly moving towards the idea of one world as in the cyber age, economic development has replaced the shrewd politics of the past. In these terms, states prefer welfare of their people at the cost of undue defence expenditures. Europe which learnt a drastic lesson from the two world wars, presents an ideal model by integrating the continent through the European Union.

    On the other side, despite criticism from various circles that India is not investing more to tackle development issues as millions remain mired in poverty; the Indian government’s unlimited defence purchases are in full swing.

    In this regard, on November 2 this year, the United States agreed to sell India the most expensive—the new F-35 fighter jets. In a report to the US Congress, the Pentagon said, “We believe US aircraft such as the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF)…to be the best in the world”, referring to the radar-evading F-35 jet.

    What a maroon he / she is , who writes this idiot report .

    We do not have a decent 155 mm howitzer , which we needs thousands ( In 1980s we need more than 1600 numbers of 155mm. guns ), we got only 400 ( nearly ) after that Army is crying for it . Still no news at all .

    IAF is crying for decreasing squardens .

    Subs are our all time weakness . Do not have enough .

    And these maroons are crying for defence expenses .

    They should ask government about the scams , that money which we lost , can be utilize in development issues .
