    It’s hard to believe that Indian military and foreign policy makers tend to consider Pakistan as a central factor in policy-making. The discussion of Pakistan’s centrality itself is misleading as it militates against facts and the reason. It’s difficult to find a similar situation globally. To make the absurdity clear, imagine a hypothetical situation where the US foreign and security policy would consider Mexico as the main factor.

    Geographically, Pakistan is not even one fourth of India’s size and consists of a population which is smaller than one sixth of Indian population. India’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is nearly eight times bigger and the military expenditure about five times higher. Consider this, when Indian military expenditure is not even 2 percent of its GDP, Pakistan spends more than 3.2 percent to sustain its military......

    LOL Interesting point there. If Pakistan was not the epicenter of terrorism, I believe India would pay as much attention to Pakistan as we do to Myanmar.

    How about the policy,
    - If you send terrorist, We kill them.
    - If you send troops, We kill them too.
    - If you try acting real smart and threaten us with your stupid nukes, We kill you.
    - If you don't stop the above three acts, Hum ghus ke chodenge (The famous Hindi quote)

    And in the end of the security policy, there should be something like this.

    "Sign here and kiss our ass"

    Cause we all know the old Indian phrase, "laaton ke bhoot baaton se nahi mante"
