other country pre-breakup..
and you are pretty proud of this because you guys beg others to give you ride?
or, because you are pretty very much proud of being colonized by British so you have been evolved to be higher lever race compared to the Chinese in
your mind, thus you are very honored to be given a chance to have a ride with your conqueror's sports car? (you used to very much appreciate the
colonization of British), I once told this to my indian friends, sorry they all think you are BS and shame of Indian.

Proteinx I think you've got the british and the Russians all muddled up..The british were in India and the Russians sent an Indian up...
The british have never sent anyone up on their own esteem...
So get your facts straight...
And now we did not 'beg' the Russians to send us up..just like Israel never begged the US to send their first man up, Ilan Ramon,( who unfortunately
never came down alive as he was aboard STS-107, ie Columbia's last flight)..
Similarly, neither did the ESA/Japan/Canada beg the US to send their men up....
Now none of these countires im sure think themselves to be highly evolved or anything so chill with the childish banter(my race superior to yours
I know your sour that china had to develop its own manned spaceflight capability because nobody let the chinese into the"manned spaceflight
And these indian friends of yours, horribly fictious though they may seem
, agree with your "chinese superior to indians" and
"indians too backward to use toilet paper, so wash their butts with the left hand" rhetorics??
Because if thats the case then these friends of yours support you on all your "anti-india/daedalus" escapades,... really intruiging..
You MUST introduce me to these friends of yours proteinx, that is if they DO exist
In return I'll introduce you to some VERY REAL ANTI-CHINA chinese people(tibetians actually) who are refuged in India due to china's invasion of
tibet in 1959..
And btw proteinx, christmas is over,don't you think its high time you remove those "pretty bright red flashy decorations" from your avvatar??
Addressing you "revenge.."
Don't worry about me and proteinx..we go back a long time..even before you came on the scene.. and as you can see I'm very capable of handling his
I must admit I didn't know that the USSR sent France up before India, the others I knew about,
c'mon they were warsaw pact countries.. Same clause can be applied for the US sending up canadians and europeans...
afghanistan understandable, since they were 'occupied' by the USSR at the time.. Syria..funny imagine all those countries got people up to space
Basically the USSR sent up commie countries first before India and France..
France I still dont know how..why not china?
As for the Tu-22Ms..what ever you say, even though the Russians are 'cash-strapped' they don't go leasing strategic bombers to countries who might
actually need them more (china)...
The Tu-22M is comparable to the Lancer and so I cannot see how you regard them separately...Tu-22M is by no means a 'run-of-the-mill' conventional
aircraft..Infact besides the US,UK, Russia, France and now India no other country has bombers 'dedicated' to that role..
Bottom-line the Tu-22M deal cannot be underplayed..
Similarly the aircraft carrier deal..and the nuke sub deal..these things are not conventional military sales..
And as for your enthusiasm on India's first manned flight, I'm touched, though I thought you would be more hopeful for canada's indepedance from
..assuming you are canadian..
However it is my sad duty to alert you to the fact that India does not see an indigenous manned spaceflight capability in th near future ,simply
because it is an avenue which will not reap any scientific returns that future robotic missions will..
(Chandrayaan lunar mission planned for 2008-9)
Its a pure waste of resources for a 'tech statement'..
Japan is following a similar path and frankly IMHO japanese space tech his superior to china..
And as for the space shuttle being superior to the soyuzT-11 , I whole heartedly agree..
but just refresh my memory will you, all manned space flights are carried out from where and in what as of now??
btw you never responded to my pak/kashmir notes..
