Manmohan Singh- adisaster

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh insisted in Parliament that India’s stand has not been diluted and maintained that dialogue cannot be resumed till Pakistan fulfils in letter and spirit its commitment not to allow its territory to be used for terrorism against this country’.One would expect Manmohan Singh to have said exactly this to his counterpart Yusuf Raza Gilani at the Sharm-el Sheikh and not to Parliament. Look at the contradictions the PM makes while intervening in the debate in Parliament-that dialogue and engagement is the only viable way to deal with the neighbor but Islamabad needs to ‘act effectively’. What does ‘act effectively’ mean? Why was this not put across to Yusuf Gilani in no uncertain terms ?Again contrary to his first assertion that dialogue cannot be resumed he states that India is ready to discuss all issues, including Pakistan’s misgivings and totally false allegations on Baluchistan . How and why did Baluchistan come into the picture? So where does ‘the only viable way to deal with the neighbor’ stand? Should there not be another dialogue to assert this to the neighbor…to remove the false allegations and to assert that all talks will be bracketed within the assurance given by Pakistan that its territory will not be used for cross border terrorism? What then was the chit chat at Sharm-el-Sheikh all about? The impact of the Prime Minister’s only viable way-dialogue, with Mr Yusuf Raza Gilani has resulted in almost immediately Pakistan making ‘totally false allegations’ of India’s involvement in Baluchistan and claiming lack of evidence to prosecute Jamaat-ud Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed. While Chidambaram states that all proof was given and that Pakistan should not ask any more questions because everything is contained in the dossier. Now the only viable way to deal with Pakistan is to send Chidambaran to Pakistan and tell his counter part not to ask any more questions and to continue the dialogue! How effective was the meet at Sharm-el-Sheikh is clear with the above two assertions made by Pakistan-no evidence on Hafiz Saaed and accusing India on its role in Baluchistan. Mr Manmohan Singh is a disaster. For any talk with Pakistan should have been on the sole condition with what he asserted in the Parliament. But Manmohan Singh uses this just as a defensive armor to his sell-out of India at Sharm, and to stop the onslaught of the Opposition. To invoke Vajpayee is another gimmick. And to say that the UPA need not learn lessons from the NDA on how to deal with Pakistan is a hollow anti-democratic utterance. In a democracy the ruling party has to learn and heed the views of the Opposition and take it along especially in Foreign policy matters. The arrogance of the PM seeps through his gentlemanly mask and to use it to cover up his utter failure at Sharm-el-Sheikh makes him cut a sorry figure.

Manmohan Singh and his different faces

What do people term one who betrays the nation? And what does the nation do if its PM betrays the nation? Will any country in the world have this honor of having its own PM a custodian of the interest of Pakistan, a total indifference to terrorism, a contradictions of words and approach, an ease with which Parliament is misled-be it in the N-deal and now at Sharm-el.Sheikh joint statement with Pakistan’s Prime Minister. What should the nation make of these actions of Manmohan Singh? His Minister of State for External Affairs Shash Tharoor has rubbed salt into the wounds by flippantly brushing aside the joint statement as a mere piece of diplomatic paper. Where does then all the diplomatic talks and statements and declarations stand? Why waste our finance in holding such talks which are a farce acceded by Tharoor. Are they playing games and misleading the nation?
Mr Manmohan Singh has lost his credibility-academic degrees, a stint in the World Bank being the Finance Minister and last term the PM etc are no guarantees that he is now judicious in his decisions and he can be trusted in safeguarding the security and the interest of this nation. This is apparent from his actions. No country in the world would have a PM ho would jeopardize the country’s security. After all the promises the UPA-1 and the UPA-2 gave the nation that its priority is to fight terrorism. But now the PM had bend backwards in pleasing Pakistan when ‘both the PMs recognized that dialogue is the only way forward .Action on terrorism should not be linked to the Composite Dialogue process and these should not be bracketed’. Which simply means that these stand independent and that dialogue is the only ‘action’ for the two countries and terrorism will be kept out/or shelved. May we the people know what it amounts to. That we keep talking while there has been no assurance that Pakistan will not allow its territory to be used by the terrorists, that it will disband terror outfits, that it will punish those who had indulged in terrorism. If these are to be shelved then what is the chit-chit between the two PMs. To start trains and more bus services so that the jihadis can come conveniently finish their god given task of killing the infidels and quietly return to Pakistan safe and sound. Pakistan will not take action against them and neither will it hand over these Jihadis to India. This is a known fact. It is also known that the military of Pakistan is not only giving the training but also giving the directions to the terrorists. Should we then be told that Pakistan and India are on the same level both are victims and both need to stand together holding hands and talking and exchanging dossiers which have no validity and are not binding since they are pieces of diplomatic papers? The UPA-2 cannot be allowed to get away with toying and playing with the lives and blood of Indians. It cannot offer the lives of Indians on a platter to mollify the whims and fancies of the USA. Did Bush have a private discussion with Manmohan Singh when he attacked Iraq?
Manmohan Singh can ‘clear the air’ at No 10 Janpath road but not waste the time in Parliament. We the common Indians can understand what has transpired and what the joint talks have been all about. It is not in semantics that we are indulging in. Manmohan Singh can try and skirt the issue (as his Cabinet colleague A.Raja does) he can double talk-one to the Pakistan PM and another to the Parliament-both has no validity. And we are suppose to pat him on the back because he had succeeded in getting the Non-Aligned Summit, ‘heeded our call to strongly condemn international terrorism’. The Non- Aligned Movement is a dead organization. Who will heed to the Non-Aligned Summit? And what does it mean when it again condemns international terrorism? Did it pinpoint the perpetrator country? This sort of jugglery in semantics is of no legal and diplomatic validity. When Monmohan Singh simply failed to convey India’s concern and wrench out a promise from the PM of Pakistan that it will not allow its territory to be used for terrorism what use is the Non-aligned Summit’s condemnation against international terrorism. What does it mean in operation and in reality? First the PM should not have opened a dialogue till Pakistan stood by its assurance that it will not give space to terrorism in its country and that it will disband all the terror outfits operating in POK. iIf this simple but significant assertion was not made by Manmohan Singh then he stands indicted.. No amount of words and justification can condone what he did at Sharm-el Sheikh. It seems to me that Manmohan Singh needs some rest-he is unsure of himself and cannot be trusted to lead the nation Another disturbing factor that often is revealed by Manmohan Singh is he is more concerned to please the other nations especially the USA. He easily submits to its pressures even at the cost of India’s interest. We cannot afford to have such a Prime Minister. It may suit Mrs. Sonia Gandhi-or does it indicate a large conspiracy and Manmohan Singh is being used for that. One gets a bit fed up with the oft repeated ‘but he is an honorable man, he is not corrupt, he is very acceptable by the other nations-especially the USA. If one has to analyze and delve into these indicators one can gain insights which tell the contrary. An honorable man must uphold the honor of the country; a non- corrupt man cannot induct a corrupt man like A.Raja and abet corruption. It is not necessary to soil one’s hands with soiled notes to be corrupt .Allowing the public exchequer to a loss to the tune of 9000 crores(10,000 cores the licensees got by unloading their shares and just 1651crores the country for) is blatant corruption. And an honorable man will not find such easy acceptance with other nations because he will be tough to deal with when it comes to upholding his country’s interests. But Manmohan Sigh seems too eager to please other countries and acts as though he is the custodian of their interests. It is then natural that they will be pleased that India has such a PM. He will be soon recommended for the Nobel prize. He gives a false impression of himself. Which is the true Manmohan Singh-the one the USA sees?-the one Pakistan sees or the one India sees? Unless all these three images he projects are one and the same and are integrated we will have a problem. It is then frightening to have Manmohan Singh as the PM of India.

Letting down our country and its forces-treason from within

From: Naresh Khanna
Subject: 25 pc of paramilitary forces ill, AIDS affected

Which other easy way to destroy the nation. It was only last year or so when the news broke out that ISI had been infiltrating aids infected prostitutes on the border areas where our troops had been stationed in order to destroy our forces.These congi commies as usual, always been primarily concerned about their seats & thus vote bank politics don’t concern themselves with the welfare of our nation, our people as well as our forces. The braindead media in Hindusthan on foreign payrolls is, on purpose, busy spreading propaganda placating western causes & their puppets “ghandi family” – sonia, rahul & the rest of trash. There are no journalists in the main street media rather propaganda spinners, who like the rest of ignorant masses do not realise the gravity of their actions for few crumbs thrown at them by the anti-national, evil congi-commie goon sqads. I really feel ashamed to feel that the incessant actions against our nation by those puki ISI make one feel proud of their constant determination against their adversaries rather than so called “our” side’s response or any action against our adversaries. Cowards always hide behind one excuse or another. How proudly that SOB Hajjpayee used to declare that we have never attacked any nation. What a shame ? You didn’t because you didn’t have guts to attack. Otherwise why won’t you ? That moron kept more than a million soldiers on our front for more than a year but no action was taken against the enemy even though they kept butchering our soldiers. Still that drunkard, dopey Hajjpayee, favourite of Hindusthan’s enemies, lacking any character compared himself to Chanakya. What a joke & a shameless at that.? No wonder he was cursed by the Hindu saints on their visit to him for ignoring dharmic causes & insulting the saints.

25 pc of paramilitary forces ill, AIDS affected!

Published on Mon 13th Jul 2009 11:20:23

Mumbai, July 13 :

About 25 per cent of India’s paramilitary forces are afflicted with ailments like hypertension, diabetes, skin diseases, even HIV/AIDS! This shocking revelation was made by DNA newspaper in its report which says that of the total 5,00,000 Indian troopers, 1,22,700, or 25 per cent are ill.

“Health problems are on the rise and affecting the performance and morale of the forces,” a home ministry official told the paper. Particularly “puzzling” is the high number of HIV/AIDS cases, something typical of war zones but not peace postings. “There are 1,300 cases of HIV/AIDS; we have lost more than 400 men to it and the problem is growing,” said the official.

“I can understand people getting HIV when they live in war-torn areas, but we have found cases among people who were stationed in Delhi. We can’t fathom why people who are allowed to stay with their families are getting infected.” He said the actual number of those infected could be more since the HIV test is optional.

A paramilitary officer said that for the government it is a Catch-22 situation because although contraceptives are distributed, their use is not officially promoted. “If we ask them to use contraceptives, it will go down as an official order. It would then become difficult to control the men, who might look around for partners outside the base areas,” he said.

“This would also make them vulnerable to terrorists and Maoists, who would soon come to know about the movements of security men. On the other hand, if we don’t ask them to use condoms, they run the risk of getting HIV,” the officer added.

HIV/AIDS is the deadliest among the litany of health problems: 52,000 have skin disease, 27,000 hypertension and 7,000 diabetes. Hypertension and diabetes, in turn, are leading to cardiac ailments, of which there are 6,200 reported cases. An equal number of personnel have developed psychiatric problems because of tough working conditions, lack of medical facilities — especially psychological support — and being away from their families.

The psychiatric problems have manifested in fragging (the term refers to attacking superiors and colleagues): 86 fratricides and 70 suicides were reported from 2006 to 2008. “We have a medical board to take care of these problems, but there is no denying that disease is bringing down the men,” the paramilitary officer said.

Very Interesting Facts

From: Dinesh Agrawal
Subject: Interesting facts

Very Interesting facts!

1. Christianity …. One Christ, One Bible Religion… Right, now let us see the facts:

You know the Latin Catholic will not enter Syrian Catholic Church.
These two will not enter Marthoma Church.
These three will not enter Pentecost Church.
These four will not enter Salvation Army Church.
These five will not enter Seventh Day Adventist Church.
These six will not enter Orthodox Church.
These seven will not enter Jacobite church.

Like this there are 146 castes in Kerala alone for Christianity,
Each will never share their churches for fellow Christians. . !

Wonderful… ! One Christ, One Bible, One Jehova… ..What a unity!

2. Now Muslims..! One Allah, One Quran, One Nabi….! Great unity! Now let us see the facts:

Among Muslims, Shia and Sunni kill each other in all the Muslim countries.
The religious riot in most Muslim countries is always between these two sects.
The Shia will not go to Sunni Mosque..
These two will not go to Ahamadiya Mosque.
These three will not go to Sufi Mosque.
These four will not go to Mujahiddin mosque.
Like this it appears there are 13 castes in Muslims.
Killing / bombing/conquering/ massacring/. .. each other !

The American attack to the Muslim land of Iraq is fully supported by all the Muslim countries surrounding Iraq!

One Allah, One Quran, One Nabi….! What great unity !

All Muslims are not terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims. 60% of all victims of Muslim terrorism are Muslims themselves. In the Mujahdeen bomb attack in the Friday prayers in Khyber, all the hundred odd victims were Muslims, killed by a Muslim.

3. Hindus –

1,280 Religious Books, 10,000 Commentaries, more than one lakh sub-commentaries for these foundation books, 330 million gods, variety of Aacharas, thousands of Rishies, hundreds of languages… still everyone goes to the SAME TEMPLE …whether unity is for Hindus or others…?

Hindus never quarreled each other for the last ten thousand years in the name of religion. Only politicians had tried to divide and rule… Keep religion out of politics and India will be the most peaceful place on earth.
