Great Game & Perfect wars

Technically, World War I was NOT a "Perfect War". I may be damned for saying this. But, if its otherwise, there wouldn't have been World War II. Because, War is "WON" only when "peace" is also part of the conclusion. Makes me think, if West ever knew how to fight "Perfect Wars".

Since the end of World War II, THAT seem to be missing. West seem to be interested in keeping the war last as long as possible. Like, Korea, for example. DPRK (or the North) and ROK (or the South) is still technically at war!

A war, according to any Asian Guru, (be it Chanakya or Sun Tzu) - it always has been that war should find lasting solution for peace. Otherwise it can't end. And, focal point was on finding the solution and not keeping the war losses heap. Of late, West doesn't allow even Asians to do it. More so, coz, there is not a single credible historical Guru prior to 300-400 years.

Asia has a rich history of wars. Big or small. Chanakya is known to have guided wars. He left it to Generals on the fighting part. But, he fought it on the political part. Like, once a war is technically defeated by his General, he would have his men make family relationships with the defeated Kingdom's family. This is exactly what made Chandragupta Maurya to marry Seleucus Nicator's daughter. There, war ends. Peace sustained. This is one way of ending conflicts then. Not possible today. But, just saying, these days finding lasting solution is not the focal point. But, winning the war by killing more & inflicting more damage to lives & livelihood. Then, loot whatever is left after damage is done.

It's not without a reason that West is failing in entire Arab world from Tunisia till Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan-Pakistan, Georgia and now, Ukraine. What next? Poland & Turkey in Europe and West & Central Africa.

It's a myth that Cold War ended. It actually never ended. All these years, US is not allowed to fund a single dollar of Russian funded joint projects - like International Space Station. It is equally true that US / EU thought they would be able to decimate Russia post USSR era and they grossly miscalculated & failed miserably!

Of late, I feel, Russia (post their Afghan invasion failed), have learnt their lessons well. Take example of Georgia & Ukraine. Operating procedure was almost similar and has very few steps. Namely:
1. Do not preempt.
2. When provoked, descend on adversary with full force.
3. Surprise is no more important. Russia attacks in broad daylight.
4. Capture territories.
5. Annexe them, forever!

So, why European Union doesn't react to this by Russia? Simple. Gas. Significant amount of gas to households & industries in EU comes from Russia. You speak against Russia, supply would be cut-off. It happened in Georgia too!

Ukraine, the best Perfect War ever fought. In a matter of 3 weeks, the entire Ukraine Navy is with Russia. Yes, ENTIRELY. Black Sea Fleet of Russian Navy alone did the job! Significant milestone when it comes to Military Studies. A remarkable fete. Kudos.

Similar to Ukraine, in 1971, Bangladesh was liberated by India. Close to 90,000 Pakistan Army soldiers were captured as Prisoners of War. Now, look at the number! Ninety Three Thousand well trained & armed men? Am telling you, such fete doesn't happen always & often. You need to be blessed to see such in your lifetime.

Am beginning to think, how many bullets were even fired at Ukraine by Russia while decimating Ukraine Navy? I looked for answer on web. It's "NONE". Ukraine Navy surrendered in Crimea & Sevastopol like a pack of cards. Now, we know how much bombs were dropped on Afghanistan & Iraq to topple regimes a decade ago. And, what did we get? War is still ON! Am forced to think, if Russia should take charge to fight Terrorism than US/NATO.

Conclusion: While I welcome the thought of fighting Perfect Wars, I would also want it to be objective. Let's not just applaud Russia for anything they do. Both West & Russia are doing mistakes. All for oil & money. But, Russia lesser as it isn't the aggressor in both Ukraine & Georgia - by itself. It was forced to by constant provocation by adversaries. I want ALL wars to complete objective with finding lasting solution for peace, in a matter of weeks. NO war should be fought more than a month. Else, the War lull would set in.

Disclaimer: Am no supporter of Communism. Nor the capitalism funded wars.

Foreign intel agencies + brand new party = Chaos

Its been a few years that Corruption has been core issue in India. But, at a wider look across the globe, during the same period, lots of foreign countries have been either destabilized, split or even their rulers thrown out. So, at times, it makes one wonder if the chaos in India is somewhere (even remotely) linked to the happenings around Globe - especially, third world countries.

It all started in Georgia. The first "Colored revolution". Later, after a few years, the actual phase of destabilization in Northern Africa started with Tunisia - December 2010. At almost the same time, in April 2011, first anti-corruption protests happened in India - which has evolved to creating a 'new party' and which is supposedly fighting for the same.

In the mean time, we saw a few happenings namely, Libya ousting Gaddafi (with foreign help), Egypt ousting Mobarak (with foreign help), Sudan divided (with foreign help). And, currently we are seeing the chaos in Ukraine (with undoubted foreign help). We also saw, how protests in Yemen, Bahrain & even Saudi shook their Emirs and they had to announce tax-cuts. Is it a butterfly theory that something like this is even possible across Nations at the same time?

In India, we saw even the 'new party' - supposedly clean - ascending to power - with someone whom they spoke ill about & termed as their adversaries. In simple terms, a clean party ascend to power is with help of not-so-clean party. Irony? Well, anything is possible. Because, their mission is not limited to corruption. Or it never was?

Few blogs even wrote about how the man who rose to become head of a Province had links with a lady who was instrumental in triggering chaos in the foreign Nations - Tunisia, Egypt. And, the lady is said to be an agent of a foreign intelligence agency. 

Some of the members are very open about their views that Armed Force's presence in Kashmir should be 'with the advice of people'. But, let me tell you something. Security is given by the State to the People. People can't ask for Security - unless, its for Individual security - which is given on a case-case basis.

If that's not enough, look at the speed at which people who are against the Indian Writ joining the 'new party'. Surprised? Or may be not, yet. Imagine, a person who carries a cash reward of 500,000 Indian Rupees on his/her head getting a ticket to contest elections to Indian Parliament? The very Institution they were against until a few weeks back. One more instance happened a few weeks back, when a member of the 'new party' expressed strong views about Judiciary & even Police.

And, so, what the guys do after ascending to power in the Province? Still did protests. No governance. Rewarded who were with them in protests. Left it in two Full moons. Clearly, making sure, that they are not here for being in the system to tweak it through constitutional means. They want it to be done on streets with media support. Something, that needs food for thought.

You came to fight corruption. Fight it against incompetent leaders. Why does one want to fight corruption against a proven leader who has pioneered in development of a Province for 12 years - over 3 terms? Something is definitely missing here. Though people know the difference in credibility of the person serving three terms and the one running away within 2 full moons. Let people decide.

That said, its testing time for Media to prove their "Nation First" stance. Media should get their act together and stop such people from getting importance. This 'new party' if still in news daily for their drama that they do almost every day, they are upto something else, for sure. Posture is not everything. You need to prove on ground. 

If Media continues to do what it is doing to stop someone whom they consider as a criminal (even after Judicial verdict), for some short-term goals, its a matter of time that India is into a chaos. Or even worse, a civil war.

Wish Indian Flag flies high, always & everytime.

This is just a primer on world chaos. I shall go in detail on overseas movements and some organizations working towards Indian chaos, in detail in my next part.
