I don’t understand all the ruckus caused by the newest leak from the stables of the Indian government.Did i hear an “Again?”.Huh,this time we can’t even blame Wikileaks!
In this case,it’s a letter from the Chief of Army Staff Gen.V.K.Singh to PM Manmohan Singh in which he
bluntly more or less,writes that the Indian Army is in such a pathetic state that if Papua New Guinea(no disrespect) attacks us today,we would probably,all of us, be taken prisoners of war.Well,he didn’t exactly say that,but when you say that 97percent of the ammunition is obsolete,it’s not hard to come to conclusions,is it?
So, my point is what’s all the fuss about?We didn’t need a leaked letter to say that the artillery is obsolete.Frankly, even a nitwit would know that.How, you might ask? I’ll tell you.We buy most of our artillery from two countries-Russia and Israel. I won’t go into the quality of stuff we recieve.Can’t be great you know,what with a MIG fighter crashing every second week and the General himself writing that the army has zero night fighting capability.For the record,the MIGs are from the land of Lenin and all the night vision guns are mostly sourced from the land of MOSSAD.
Thing is,why hasn’t India after 65 years of independence managed to produce heavy artillery on it’s own instead of buying from others? Oh,wait a second,don’t we have the DRDO? Don’t you know,it stands for Defence Research and Development Organisation!But i’ll be damned if i remember the last time they showed the world an example of their ‘research’.Let’s not even think about the ‘development’ part!All it does is manage the annual showcase tamasha we have every year on Raisina Hill,with a smiling President Patil wondering when the thing would end so that she can get back to the comforts of her palace!
However,one good thing that has come out of this episode,with evidence pointing to the fact that the General leaked the letter himself, is that we have shown the world we are the greatest in INTERNAL AMBUSH!
Yup,no one else stands a chance in this sector.For once,even Pakistan would happily agree!
