Here's an ironic story, when you consider the recent North Korea fiasco:

(BBC) India has successfully launched a long-range intercontinental ballistic missile able to carry a nuclear warhead, officials say.

The Agni-V missile was launched from a site off India's east coast and took 20 minutes to hit its target somewhere near Indonesia in the Indian Ocean.

The missile has a range of more than 5,000km (3,100 miles), potentially bringing targets in China within range.

Double standards? It's okay for India to do it, but not for North Korea?

If it is confirmed as a successful test, India would join an elite nuclear club of China, Russia, France, the US and UK which have such long-range missiles. Israel is also thought to possess them.

WTF!!!!!!!! We have an 'elite nuclear club' on this planet?? Wy do we need an elite nuclear club? Oh I get it, they are the bullies on the school playground!!

watch how quiet Pakistan will become now.

This is all sabre rattling at the end of the day as I don't believe India - China relations are that bad.

As for the future, just watch China and India rise in economic and military power.

why the need for long range missiles when their enemies are right next door?

India the only known country with declared nuclear weapons which is not a party to the Non Proliferation Treaty (NPT),

but is still allowed to carry out nuclear commerce with the rest of the world - including USA - thru the Hyde act and other agreements, including the promise not to detonate a nuclear device (lest recognized nuclear priveleges be null & void)

All paid for with UK 'aid'. If India can find the resources to build nukes and missiles and are seemingly happy to let their people live in squalor at the same time then we should cut all economic aid immediately, it IS just a 'peanut' after all.

How many times a day does India threaten to obliterate it's neighbors? How about North Korea?

It came as North Korea threatened "unprecedented action" against Seoul

You are either a moron or one of those trolls the Koreans pay to visit websites.
