My heart and admiration goes to all who made this a success. This and many other things would have been possible much much earlier only if our nation as a whole would have gone beyond the bondages of ‘religious, political, Cast oriantal mind set, reagionalism, correption, etc’ . We are still slaves to such mental full-stops.

Its not to threaten the smaller neighbors but instead to keep the big boys in the play field informed about its mindset.
Indias defense preparedness is one of deterrence- The loss/ damage to the enemy, in the event of war, should be unacceptable to the enemy- The current global military powers like US, Russia and china are aware of this and as you can see, almost never make any statements against Indian modernization. Why should India need 3000 Km range missiles to attack its neighbors? Makes no sense.
The largest democracy with a billion plus population cannot remain helpless when super powers try to dictate terms to it should there be a serious conflict. It had campaigned for global disarmament for over 6 decades and got no response. Now look at what Obama is proposing to Russia. The same medicine. Global disarmament is the way to go.
In a bad world we live in, sathyagraha and nonviolence should be preached/followed from the point of strength and not weakness.

I do not know why you were forced to use words like “most rotten self-serving egotistical people” but one thing I know for sure if you are searching for nice people in India, forget it. We Indians are sick of being “nice”. Nehru was nice and got a stabbed by China in 1962. Terrorists from Pak come and slaughter our people like animals. You cannot understand the sentiments around here, you cannot feel our helplessness when our PM signs peace deals with the same murderers, giving them the chance to make a good deed. Instead what we get is betrayal and threats of more lethal attacks. What is our option then knowing that some day we may have to go to war( we already have had 3) with the same people whom with we are trying to have peace today. Just wishing that Pakistan was never our neighbor won’t solve the problem. We have to build a credible Military power and need to have the determination to keep our country safe, whatever the cost may be.

William I do not know you personally but I can only think of “good”(see!) things for you. The aggression in your paragraph was totally uncalled for.
