ok first,when i looked at the thread i thought" someone actually liked the way LCA looked??!!!!!"but when i started checking out the replies i realised some people are sane in here.yes,LCA is'nt much of a looker(i'm an indian and i have no shame in saying that).in fact the first time i looked at it i hoped this thing will never be seen by anyone(even me).i mean yuc!!!it flys?!!!!!.but this is where my criticism ends.i mean yea the plane's really idiotic looking but hey it's how it performs that matters.
now to my fellow indians,come on don't make too much fuss about it.i mean at the end of the day it's still a mach 1 fighter.it's not something new but yea it is something built in india.a important step towards self reliability in the country's defence(and it's about time too).let's not forget the ground reality here.it's still not state of the art.small yes.sleath maybe.still is it the frontline of our defence?no(not yet atleast) and i don't see it as one too.i don't know what it will replace or what it's role will be in real combat and let's hope we will never have to wage a war.good job still but i'd rather wait for the MCA to give it the title "the pride of india".i mean come on let's not look down on ourself and settle with a LCA.we can do more than this.i believe we will too.
now to the non indians here,well hello dudes.i mean what is it about india you guys simply love hating or mocking?
i mean here's somethings from the web site which a lot will find insane
end of the world in dec 2012- yea sure,in fact praise the lord.
is bush doing a great job?-apparently for some.in fact he actually might be smart.
china will kick nwo's ass-sure(but let's just forget the fact that US-china trade is at $260 billion dollars and most of it's the foreign investments come from the purported NWO nations)
j-10s-great!!!even though most of us don't know a lot about them.
india's joining the NWO-definitely(forget that india and US have a lot of differences about WTO and are fighting for a lot of patent rights,the latest one is about the medicinal properties of neem claimed to be discovered by USA which india won by the way)
i mean forget about china's human rights history!!!bah what is that?who cares?there're making big bucks!!!!
but india,biggest economy by 2050.nah!!!!!!not happening.we're betting the world will end in 2012.
good luck guys!!!best of luck bashing india.i know all you need is an excuse and i'm thinking i gave you one just like this thread. have fun while you're at it.
