We may import the world's greatest weapons but we're ruled by a bunch of UN brown nosing cowards. We pay mountain of tributes to that criminal organization (UN) that is responsible for dividing our people into India and Pakistan.

What makes world powers is NOT weapons but a country that is afraid 2 face d world and is ready 2 take losses.

Even if we imported the best of tech, and went up against say- Burma or North Korea or Vietnam, we'd get our arses kicked pretty flat.

We need GUTS not WEAPONS if we want 2 become world power.

This is obviously some personal interest between Indian politicians and some US defense contractor's.

If we REALLY had an suepr military power as a goal we wouldn't be buying weapons, but would be reshaping our armed forces and being more aggressive in the UN.
