The whole world is surprised as to how the Afghan army of 3-3.5 lakhs soldiers, trained and equipped by the USA with sophisticated US weapons has given in to the motley crowd of 75000 Taliban fighters. It is more devastating to know that collapse has taken place within a fortnight.
"US withdrawal from Afghanistan, at this stage, is considered to be at cross-purpose of its long term and strategic objective. It has not only conceded space to China in Afghanistan but also aided China to move one step further towards its objective of Global supremacy."
"QUAD is India’s necessity today to counter China, and of course the United States will act as a big brother until India acquires the capabilities which the US has today. Until India’s Aatamnirbharta brings it at par — it will be bullied by all and sundry."
Most of the Indian strategic experts act as scare mongers. They paint unrealistic scenarios. They give too many capabilities to India’s adversaries. China and Pakistan are made to look as invincible monsters who would eat up India within the twinkling of the eye lashes.
"Where and when, the issue of national security begins, there and then, freedom of expression, liberty and democracy not only lose their shine but they become irrelevant. Unrestricted liberty and freedom are the greatest threats to national integrity."
