Appeasement has no Future

There was speculation but little expectations about the meeting between PMs Nawaz Sharif and Manmohan Singh on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly (UNGA). Indian govt functionaries and almost all political leaders have fallen over themselves competing with the vociferous Indian media in consistently attacking Pakistan. Their near unanimous opinion, conditions were not conducive for talks unless there was peace (on Indian terms) along the border. Could the belligerent statements of the Indian COAS, Gen Bikram Singh, have taken place without govt sanction?


Media and the Armed Forces

The new way of making war, the projection of “soft power”, is cynical and amoral in involving and persuading millions of people. The lords of this new media war are the communication and image experts closelytied to political power, producing a sophisticated kind of communication incomparison with classic state propaganda. Having great financial resources they use the same witty psychology employed by advertisement groups to successfully launch a product on the market.
