    You are correct in stating that India's security apparatus is outdated.

    BTW, I am a US citizen... (of Indian descent, but a US citizen nevertheless).

    Most cops in India carry a big stick... there are advantages in having an undermanned police force.  Of course, there are also several disadvantages.

    But, on the whole, a young society/young country is better off with an undermanned force (less opportunities for a coup, etc.) than an overbearing one.

    However, you are also correct in stating that the security apparatus must change... and I think they are taking steps to change.

    That is orthogonal to the point I was making in my diary...but you are making a valid point

    It appears that India is applying (and is ratcheting up) international pressure...as you suggested.  Decisive and immediate action is could also be impulsive and foolhardy...it depends on the outcome, doesnt it.

    As to the intelligence, we have had embarrassing intel failures all over the world, including in the US (I am sure we dont need to cite recent history)

    I don't know that India can afford not to go to war....

    Thank you for the complement.  We disagree on where we are headed.

    What is your prediction for where we are headed ?

    for reading my first diary !!

  • marriage appears to be a privilege that is readily granted to all straight folk... even straight folk whose every other privilege is revoked (ever heard of serial killers and rapists being granted that privilege in prison ?).... but cannot be granted to honest, law-abiding and loving gay folk.

    I wonder what your moderate Republican friend would have to say about that.  I wonder ...
