Quote of the day:

“We are tickled pink to be here,” said Dennis D. Cavin, the vice president for international air and missile defense strategic initiatives at Lockheed Martin.
Yes, tickled pink to be in Bangalore hawking fighter aircraft for sale to the Indian Government. Huh. Where do they come up with these expressions?

A great country buying fighters from another great country, the largest arms dealer, to defend itself from the third great country whose strongest weapon is the die hard young men ready to die to kill a few. Wonder what fighters would do to defend against them, that an alert and proactive police would not :).

Hi timeless_business,

Which is this third country? -- I can think of quite a few but I'm not sure which one you mean.

Left to imagination, you cannot be wrong.
