    India will operate in Syria only under UN mandate. If fighters are to be operated, I think IAF will do the honour.

    Four out of five permanent Security-Council members are already there. Does India want a seat or not?

    That's not how Indian policy works. You can all go to hell individually or together, don't drag India into the mess you are in.

    Four members of the UNSC being there is different from UN mandate. India operates only under UN mandate. Meaning, India will operate under the UN, not as an alliance or even individually unless it concerns our national security.

    India is a founding member of NAM.

    Our MoD has already explained our stand a few days ago.

    India has about 8000 troops in warzones across the world under the UN flag. There are troops on the Golan Heights as well, meant to prevent war between Israel and Syria. India has no political agenda during such deployments.

    First they came for the Communists but I was not a Communist so I did not speak out. Then they came for the Socialists and the Trade Unionists but I was not one of them, so I did not speak out. Then they came for the Jews but I was not Jewish so I did not speak out. And when they came for me, there was no one left to speak out for me.

    A 20 percent India Islamic population is going to make mince meat of the Hindus with the help of the rest of the Islamic World, its just a matter of time and India does not help others in this war, then no one is going to help India.

    First, I don't know how an aircraft carrier is related to Hindu Muslim issue in India. Second, why do you think a soverign nation like India need anyone's help to sortout it's home affairs ?? As the time goes on, every Indian will imbibe his Indian values and do whatever it takes to maintain peace and harmony in his country. Because if they don't do that they will certainly become a second class citizen in India by their deeds as they can not survive in India with hate and nonsecular propaganda in muslim world.

    They seem to be doing OK so far, Islamic population expanding faster then Hindu and usually its the Hindu that are running every time the Muslims get upset.

    As far as the INS Vikramaditya Aircraft Carrier its going to be the queen of the ship yards. Thing has been in salt water for 40 years, its a rusty bucket of bolts held together by 2 inchs of paint. At that age we sell Air Craft Carriers for scrap for a dollar. It will spend far more time in shipyards then it ever does at sea. Russia screwed you all again.

    Every nation which was ruled by Muslims became 100% muslim nation. Why do you think that in India Hindus are still 80% of the population?

    Thanks for compairing India with USA. But obviously we can pay a friend $2.3 billion for an older Aircraft carrier. To tell you the truth, Indian navy never wanted Gorkshov but GOI made IN to have this old Aircraft carrier in their fleet. Navy has different plans but Navy and government did it for friendship. For us, russian friendship is more merrier than those $2.3 billion we paid for erstwile Admiral Gorkshov which is now rechristened as INS Vikramaditya. IN will retire it in 2045 but it may be more earlier given the defence budget expansion in coming years.

    The proposal for Vikky was made under NDA-1 and initial contract was for less than USD 1b. Once UPA came to power and with Russian agent Italian waitress in command, Russians decided to loot India. IN wanted to pull out of the deal in 2007 but was forced to agree to it. IN again accepted the Russian offer in which Russia proposed to refund the entire money and keep this ship for themselves. Once again IN was forced to accept this ship.
