    [Apologies to readers: a stupid anti-Semitic video was linked here by a deeply misguided person. It is not our intention to make VM’s comment pages a vehicle for hate; the interns responsible for the error are even now being forced to watch 700 consecutive screenings of “Triumph of the Will.”]

    “So far, it appears that America is committed to keeping this alliance strong” – from strictly power perspective a realist may identify this commitment as both balancing and buck-passing (since projecting power over a large body of water can be difficult).

    How is Irv K’s David Duke video about Zionists possibly related to this topic? I thought the point of moderated comments was to prevents this sort of thing.

      @Kevin. Thanks for drawing that to my attention. The link is off the site.

    Having learned the Truth about the Zionists @1 from the former Grand Wizard of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, let us return to the grownups.

    “India needs to fix its dysfunctional defense projects”

    And who better to learn from than the US?

    “India needs to fix its dysfunctional defense projects….”

    Someone had better tell General Dynamics, regarding the F-35.

    “The boffins at the DRDO appear to be in a world of their own, working on capabilities that the military doesn’t want and didn’t ask for, and with no concept of time or money.”

    What, ho? Defense contractors and crony politicians wasting military budgets in such a way? Why, in my entire 20-year career with the DoD I never HEARD of such a thing!

    The deuce you say, sir!

    Our Defense projects are not all that dysfunctional, there are going to be some Turkeys along with the eagles. We’re all typing on a successful DARPA project right now…the Internet.
