India-US Nuclear deal , rejoinders to Leftists and opponents

India-US Nuclear deal , rejoinders to Leftists and opponents by Anonymous everestpeak 1. The usa with tactful and strategic thinking fooled the south block mandarins by striping the closely guarded secret 'OPERATIONCHANAKYA which the Indian nuclear community has build indigenously by making it opened to safeguards nude). Comment : The technology which we use that is closely guarded is in the FBR. And the FBR are not part of the deal. The PHWR are pretty much similar to the others in world belonging to the era of 60s and 70s. Also, we lack the technology to build 1000MW reactors. All the 5 NPT states - have that capability. 2. The deal gave a new logic to the nations like china and other non NPT nations to get technology w/t signing the treaty ,as we are seeing Musharraf already gave a statement regarding this. Comment : Mushraaf - giving a statement is not the end of NPT. Pakistan always was to get equated with India - be it in technology or any other field. We should not r

Agenda for internal security

The first tattva By Varun Gandhi Over the past millennium, India has been continuously invaded and her cultural representations devastated. Indians at the time did not look beyond their immediate neighbourhood and failed to augment their military strength. They had an insular domestic policy, and did not review military developments and social changes occurring beyond their horizon. Modern India stands tall among the world’s great nations, but the thousand years old mentality of military nonchalance continues to influence the non-violent Indian mind. On the one hand, Pakistan spends nearly five per cent of its Gross Domestic Product (GDP) on defence and China nearly $ 70 billion (Rs 308 lakh crore), while India on the other hand spends a conservative 2.9 per cent of her GDP or $ 18.86 billion (Rs 83,000 crore). The Indian reluctance to aggressively build-up military strength has haunted India in the past millennium, and will continue to haunt her in the new one as well, if India’s

Sonia’s message

Delhi has always taken care that no regional leader or party becomes strong in India's politics, particularly Maharashtra of which Nehru had a great phobia. Because Maharashtra and Mumbai was the cradle of freedom movement and in the past at least, it was the most politically aware state. Title: Sonia’s message Author: Editor Publication: Free Press Journal Date: February 24, 2006 240206-editorial.html Maharashtra has been ruled by the Congress party since independence, except for a term when the Shiv Sena-BJP alliance was in power for four and a half years. Congress workers describe Maharashtra as a ‘loyal’ state. When the Janata Wave was sweeping the north to the decimation of the Congress, it was Maharashtra to stop the onslaught and stand behind the Congress and Indira Gandhi in 1977. But most leaders from Maharashtra do not feel comfortable with Delhi. Irrespective of the post they occupy, these leaders are perennially haunte

RSS demands scrapping of Sachar committee

- Nagpur, Feb 26: The RSS today demanded scrapping of the Justice (retd) Rajender Sachar Committee forthwith and dubbed the move as "height of appeasement of Muslims." On the third and final day of its meeting here, the Akhil Bhartiya Pratinidhi Sabha (ABPS) of the Sangh passed a resolution asking the Centre to disband the Sachar panel which it felt was posing a threat to country`s unity, integrity and true secularism. The Sabha also opposed all moves to give minorities reservations on the basis of religion, RSS spokesman Ram Madhav, told reporters on sidelines of the concluding session of Sabha. RSS will not allow another partition of country on basis of religion, Madhav said adding, the Sachar Committee was asked to identify the states, regions, districts and blocks where there was dominant Muslim population. "Will this not push the country towards another partition, because precisely the same was the basis of 1947 partition," the resolut


INTERNATIONAL TERRORISM MONITOR: PAPER NO.26 PORT SECURITY IN US by B. Raman The strengthening of physical security measures to prevent possible terrorist strikes, particularly by Al Qaeda and the International Islamic Front (IIF), against means of public transport such as civil aviation, ports and shipping services and underground and other railway stations has been one of the important homeland security measures taken by the US and other countries in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist strikes by Al Qaeda in the US homeland. The successful terrorist strikes by suspected Al Qaeda elements in Madrid in March 2004, and in London in July last year underlined the importance of such measures and the inadequacy of physical security relating to public transport. 2. Among the strengthened physical security measures relating to ports and shipping services undertaken all over the world are the following: Physical security of ports and their installations, including oil storage tanks etc. Phys
