Harrak- Democracy depends upon the character of the people, not the economy

I do accept Harrak that India is a very poor nation. Unfortunately India does not have resources such as oil to squander on harems and Wahhaissm unlike your so beloved sheikhs of Arabia (just wait until it runs out)

What India has is a glorious civilization which installs a spirit of cooperation and civility amongst its citizens (something nearly destroyed by your barbarious invading islamic brethen) The poverty is the consequence of that i.e the 800 year old Islamic occupation. India does not function upon the whims of one man (unlike Saddam's Iraq) or a family (the saudis) or an elite group of clerics (your beloved soon to be invaded Iran)

Harrak, I do not know where you watched your garbage documentary. But let me tell you that as soon as India brings its house in order (which will be very soon, in about a decade or two) it shall be the mightest nation in that corner of the world equal or greater than China.

India has one of the world's greatest technological infrastructure. And while you congratulate yourself on seeing your sheikhs waste billions of petrodollars on themselves, India is undertaking a massive adult reeducation and poverty alleviation program.

Harrak, please put back your head in the sand again and go to sleep. The next time you wake up, it might be India who is invading the Middle East to finish America's unfinished task.
