Please, I mean PLEASE tell me that this guy is insane and has no clue whatsoever of what he just said.
*Quote* Along with the economy, we also have to grow militarily, not only for attacking others, but to defend ourselves from certain forces which are well known to us *End quote*
He said, "not only for attacking". Where does he thing he is? America? And being paranoid enough to call it an 'all-out invasion'. We have enough people with their fingers on the trigger already, no thankyou very much.
I understand he was a Joint-Director of IB, but seriously, since when did the political system drive prosperity? Don't we remember Germany under Hitler? Or Japan during WW II?
It is common knowledge that such nefarious activites have risen manifold since the early 1990s.One of the major reasons has been the increase in the number of undeserving people in the Government /Police /paramilitary organisations on account of OBC reservations implemeted since then.Earlier the incompetence was limited to 22.5%, now it has gone up to 50% give or take a few.The country has to suffer !
PKL. July 20 , 2006. Your interview with Malay intelligence-man is perspicacious. We are aspiring to be a world -power, and yet our tools for pre-eminence in the world of real -politik are abysmally antediluvian, If truly we want to turn the corner,we have got to do something drastically radical to give up this effete Sab Chalta Hai indifference in Government and elites of all sorts.
