so, lemme come to something really funny, since Indians have become really bleeding-heart concerned about Uighur Muslims. This is, of course, notwithstanding how they kill Muslims in occupied J&K and elsewhere in India.>
>Libs of all hues, including (actually esp.,) in Pakistan, have suddenly embraced the Uighur cause. a few things are of course being conveniently forgotten here: one, Kashmir is a disputed and occupied territory, as per both UNSC Resolutions as well as bilateral arrangements>
>and Pakistan is a party to that despite; Xinjiang is Chinese territory, just like Assam and the Red Corridor where Indian security forces oppress, capture, torture, kill people. We don’t mention that because that’s Indian territory>

India's #VikramLander failure is being debated here depending on which angle one is taking: consider.
1, as a scientific/tech achievement, final-phase failure aside, it is a big leap and shows #ISRO in a good light; 2, it also shows that #India is producing an impressive array>
> of scientists and engineers; that should be a matter of concern for us; 3, space is one of the frontiers in future wars, which will be tech-, and capital-intensive, not labour-intensive; 4, we should take serious stock of the education we are imparting and whether we can keep>
> up or, better still, overtake. i don’t have to say what it means if we can’t…
now to the failure: we are adversaries; #Kashmiris are under lockdown and being oppressed. while we should never underestimate the adversary, there’s absolutely no reason why we shouldn’t be happy>
