    :facepalm: Such an idiotic piece of reporting. They took his statement completely out of context. Not to mention that the interviewer is annoying as hell.

    Cohen made some good points though.

    People in India, Need to stop feeding trolls at the other side of the border ..

    It brings unnecessary attention, Comparing India with Pakistan in every aspect is like comparing oranges with Apples ..

    Needless to say, Some of our activities bring negative light on ourselves from International community ..

    ========================

    We are making Aircraft carriers to Nuclear submarines, Have largest IT workers in the world, We are no longer in league of regional powers but World powers..

    Our people should be aware of their place ..

    i listened to the video ( albeit on double - speed to save time )
    i felt, Cohen was totally rational and fair-minded , on the level towards india

    what he said was that the pak generals had always told him that india, being the big brother,
    should give concessions to pak being the younger brother

    but india felt that with pak -china and to some extent usa, as well,
    joining together going against her ,
    she felt she couldnt give pak the big brother concessions that it wanted from her
    in that sense, he said, there was a feeling of insecurity, an inferiority complex

    everyone may have their opinion.
    personally , i felt that , taken in context,
    Cohen did not engage in any psychological sarcasm or putting down
    to me, he was giving a fair and level-headed opinion

    Re: Stephen P Cohen: India Has An Inferiority Complex via-à-vis Pakist

    on reflection though ,
    i do recall Cohen had said

    that most indian muslims would rather be with india than pakistan,
    or separate !

    now i dont like that separate word, as used by him
    so although in the past i had been mostly pro usa easily,
    if i keep hearing more of that , i might gradually change.

    really our dealings with the usa or indeed any nation
    should be on a piecemeal basis
    never assume we have pally-wally friends who will be there in time of need

    what we need is know-how - tech transfer
    and, we can well afford to pay for that

    we dont need their BS joint exercises either
    we pay = we get TOT otherwise, buzz-off
    anything less than immediate TOT, thanks but no-thanks
    not necessary for pie-in -the sky-bye and bye type of promises of TOT
    because they can give all sorts of tricks an excuses
    we would prefer to try someone else

    Re: Stephen P Cohen: India Has An Inferiority Complex via-à-vis Pakist

    Stephen Cohen has a history

    Stephen Cohen has ALWAYS been a Paki sympathiser

    He claims to be a South Asian Expert and analyst but he has been in Pakistan's camp
    from the beginning

    Basically he wanted " importance " and " respect " from the Indian Govt

    And he has NEVER got it

    Infact his latest book on India Pakistan relations FLOPPED Badly
    and was TRASHED by the Indian Media

    " Shooting for a Century " The India-Pakistan Conundrum: Shooting for a Century | Brookings Institution

    Re: Stephen P Cohen: India Has An Inferiority Complex via-à-vis Pakist

    Stephen Cohen 's credibility is AS FOLLOWS

    He FAVOURS a Nuclear Deal for Pakistan

    He supports Pakistan on Kashmir

    He claims Pakistan has Genuine grievances like Kashmir and 1971
    and Pakistan BEHAVIOUR towards India is understandable because it is a WOUNDED State

    Briefly he was critical towards the Pakis for their double crossing USA in Aghanistan and hiding OBL
    but even that he has blamed it on Pakistan's insecurities vis a vis India

    Ok Mr Cohen ,you had your 20 minutes of notoriety calling India,names ? now vanish, evaporate, skedaddle !!
    In fact it is the Americans who are turning tail in Afghanistan, Should we talk of your wasted soldiers in Vietnam.
    All your pentagonese jargon like "troops surge" and aerial platforms have not brought peace in Afghanistan!
    You surely do have an inferiority complex vis-a -vis the afghan, good Taliban / bad Taliban some George w Bush Joke(r)

    Everyone likes to wash their hands in the Indo-Pak laundry.
    Act like a pundit, write some books, do some talk shows, get some publicity and then mint some...
    Who cares what the west thinks these days anyway. :rolleyes:

    Posted with such heading by tehlaka TV. These mischief mongers want to troll their own country, I wonder what kind of sick mindset these jholaphaaps have.

    Re: Stephen P Cohen: India Has An Inferiority Complex via-à-vis Pakist

    Has Cohen lost it?!

    We and inferiority complex with Pakistan? :rofl:

    On what grounds?

    Being a failed state?

    Being a sectarian war zone?

    Surrendering one's culture to a alien desert cult in the name of 'conversion'?

    Having being screwed in every war fought?

    Having failed to control its own tribal territories in 66 years?

    Or hiding 36 dreaded terrorist organizations from Chechens to IMU to Bali bombers?

    :toilet:
