    Keep calm and liberate Balochistan



    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    India liberated Bangladesh because of one idiot PM Indira

    India became a nuclear power because of one idiot PM Vajpayee..

    And India will liberate Balochistan because of another idiot PM Modi..

    If America has "idiots" who keep invading nations for American interests, we have our own "idiots". Otherwise we Hindus have nothing to do with Indira, Vajpayee or Modi, we believe in Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam. Hinduism is a religion of peace just like America is a bastion of human rights and Islam is a religion of peace. This is a game two can play. :troll:

    Trump says in state of the Union : "If I hadn't become president, America would have been in a war with N.Korea today"

    This is a good example of how the deep state controls narratives. They built his whole election campaign on "war with N.Korea and Iran" rhetoric, to see how those nations behave to that bluff. That was America's last attempt to secure a deal and settle down. That's how America bargains. Make a loud and visible threat, get people to give you concessions, and withdraw that threat. If you call their bluff, you get much more dividends than if you heed it (and then the president proclaims "I averted a major calamity").

    They tried the same with China, they imposed sanctions to blackmail China into a lopsided "free trade" agreement. China imposed counter-sanctions and America had to run to the negotiating table. They imposed sanctions on Indian companies. India started dumping the US$ and started buying oil in rupees.

    Even now, they are purposely promoting the story of "withdrawal from Afghanistan; Talks with Taliban", to get India's attention. "Taliban" here is a trope for "we are going into Pakistan's camp and handing over Afghanistan to the ISI". They want India to come running to them to plead to them. No power hands over such a lucrative land to someone else after having spent a trillion $ over a decade. America will always stay put here. This troop withdrawal is just a troop rotation hogwash. Today they withdraw their troops to put pressure on Afghanistan's neighbors. Tomorrow they will create a false flag attack and replenish their troop strength at will.

    It's an imperial power in decline, playing its last cards to bluff its way into the next century. India should play it cool, and not get sucked into their bluff. The century belongs to us.

    Very interesting video : Can India Be Cunning?

    US Senate Passes Amendment Opposing Plans to Exit Syria, Afghanistan

    Le lo, benco. Shuru ho gaya inka drama. Not even a week into announcing their exit, they are already mulling cancelling the exit. They announced an exit. Russia invited Taliban for talks. Murica immediately cancelled their exit.

    Everything these chews say and do is a negotiating tactic. None of it is to be taken seriously.

    Context : Picture of Taliban - Russia talks held in Moscow this week, which prompted the Senate to oppose a US withdrawal from Afghanistan.

    [​IMG]


    Meanwhile, India and China didn't issue a single statement as this whole flip-flop unfolded because we knew this was a drama. After spending trillions of $ and 10k+ soldiers/PMCs, who are they trying to fool, claiming that they are leaving. The Americans will never leave Afghanistan. It will be their permanent base in this part of the world. Staying in Afghanistan allows them to keep an eye on Russia, Iran, China, India, all from one convenient location.

    In a way
    I think in a way its good for us, we dont need any spilover shit coming from Afghanistan to kashmir. Kashmir is also stabilizing, more pigs are getting slaughtered also fewer casualties on our side.

    Presence of America will be stabilizing factor, so we don't need to put more of our resources there. As India need to focus on much needed economic development in the coming decade

    Yes, that's the Indian deep strategy as well. America is seen as a stabilizing factor in Afghanistan. Indian intel agencies get an envelop to operate when Murica is present in Afghanistan. The bulk of $ for securing the perimeter, paying off the warlords, etc is taken care of my Murica, we don't have to put our boots on the ground. Murica is the hammer there, we are the scalpel. They drop big bombs and gain nothing; We focus on sensitive operations that change the playing field in our favor (dams, parliament etc).

    Afghan govt. is just a consensus govt. nominated by the consensus of the major powers. US, Russia, India, Iran have agreed not to assassinate or topple anyone, so it remains there as a figurehead.

    The Taliban is like the aliens in the story. They are paid mercenaries, they fight for the sake of fighting. The US loves their existence, because they create the excuse to remain deployed and make it look like the US is needed to keep the stability. Sometimes the aliens win, like they did in Iraq. That's a risk management failure.

    Very interesting comments by Alok Bansal (RE : US withdrawal from Afghanistan)


    He suggests that if US decides to take unilateral destabilizing actions in Afghanistan, then India should work with Iran. If the US also threatens India not to deal with Iran, then India should collaborate with China to stabilize Afghanistan.
