            Dudes, again - Congress paid commenters. I just want to read real opinion not deception. Is this even the Party of Nehru? Goodness, all that is left with these Congress guys are the first family of India and deception and lies. Congress now stinks big time.

              This is war - but I bet even Indians are doing twice this damage. Only thing, the stanis do not have any oversight over their Army. In a war, India will win hands down. Numbers are with it - it is at war with a country that has no value of human life. Indians have to do something about stan. Escalate it, bring in artillery and bomb them into the sky - that country cannot afford this for long. Clear the border areas completely and keep bombing them.

                        Give Subbu a rifle and send him to the front. He has the solution. His chest measures 57 inches compared to the "nalayak's" 56 inches.

Always there will be casualties on both the sides.Those commentators who are against our brave PM Mr.Modi has some short of deeper problem and the cure is nothing but to go for vacationing in porkistan and enjoy in their choice of country,because we are fine here without you all jerks, in our descent country called ,India.

                                  Modi had promised ten stani soldiers for every Indian soldier killed. Hope that also was not a election jumla?
