    An article worth a reading.

    Of course, one cannot say it is the Gospel.

    Interesting is the comment in the article (if you have read it you will find):

    India is one of the biggest importer of arms in the world and also the biggest contributor to the Swiss bank accounts. It is therefore, bound to appear as a large blip on the radars of these ‘Groups’ that thwart independent decision making abilities of nations.


    When big strategies are propounded in the developing world, one has to take them with a pinch of salt. Behind these strategies the lurking shadows of the arms industry and vested interest is too evident to be ignored. If anti-virus manufacturers can plant viruses in computers - then it is not hard to imagine that arms industry too has a role in fomenting conflicts.
