Rouble rubble, jihad and sliding oil: Here's how the west is shooting itself in the foot

The politics of the west's sanctions against Russia and the Saudi bid to fix Iran and Russia by keeping oil prices low is driving the world to its next crisis. The west may find that in trying to fix Putin, it may be shooting itself in the foot #Japan #oil #Europe #InMyOpinion #Geopolitics #Iraq #Great Depression #West #George Bush #US Sanctions #ISIS #Peshawar attack #Rouble Crisis #West Asian Oil #Saudi-Iran Rivalry

God damn the Taliban: Peshawar attack reveals our moral emptiness

In a world gone mad, when ever increasing and spectacular violence has spawned by ever blinkered tit-for-tat rationales, children have come to represent that one, last line of moral resistance. The point when most of us will say, No, we dont care who did this or why or to whom. This is wrong. #Terrorism #Pakistan #Taliban #InMyOpinion #Peshawar #children #Hiroshima #Gaza #War #Terrorists #Humanity #Peshawar attack #collateral damage

Peshawar school attack: As Pakistan mourns, it's not the time for us to gloat

Indians may feel smug that Pakistan's support of terrorism has now begun to bite them, but there is a different lesson we need to learn from the Taliban's mass murder of children in Peshawar: theocracy kills its own #Terrorism #Islamic terrorism #Al-Qaeda #Pakistan #Taliban #InMyOpinion #Peshawar #LeT #Boko Haram #Tehreek-i-Taliban #Mass Murder #ISIS #Peshawar Taliban Attack #Tehreek-e-Pakistan Taliban #Pak Army School #Peshawar attack

Peshawar school attack: Pak Taliban killing children; when will this stop?

Where will all this stop? Or, will it? There doesnt seem to be much hope in sight. There appears to be no moral beacon left for terrorist outfits like Taliban. No leadership to tell them where to draw the line. #Terrorism #Pakistan #Islam #Jihad #InMyOpinion #Peshawar #terrorist #Jihadists #Tehreek-i-Taliban #Peshawar school attack #schoolchidlren

Step-children of Vijay Diwas: We treat our war heroes and families so badly

India does not remember its heroes of the Bangladesh War. And the spouses of our martyred soldiers often live in penury, thanks to the callousness of a bureaucratic state. We need a proper Veteran's Commission to take up their causes #InMyOpinion #Army #Indian Army #defence ministry #Vijay Diwas #1971 war #Martyrs #Vijay Diwas.

Sydney siege: Unlike 26/11, media must think first and telecast later

Media should be careful about what it telecasts during the Sydney hostage crisis so that it does not help the wrong side. #World #Media #Terrorism #26/11 #Australia #InMyOpinion #News #Terrorists #Sydney cafe #Sydney hostage crisis

Can the BCCI be fixed? No! We should ask the NSE to create a rival league

The BCCI is a private club and private clubs operate according to the rules set by their own members. The only way to challenge it to change is by creating a rival that play by different rules. The NSE took on the Club BSE this way. #Sports #BCCI #India #Cricket #Chennai Super Kings #InMyOpinion #BSE #NSE #CCI #N Srinivasan #Competition #Monopoly
