Two battalions Canada Goose sale of Hodson’s Horse

Canada Goose sale Recent reports in the Pakistani press recommend that to bail out the mired in Afghanistan Americans, canada goose uk black friday India should dispatch two battalions of the Hodson Horse army regiment to Afghanistan. Canada Goose sale

buy canada goose factory sale canada goose jacket cheap First the matter of Hodson’s Horse. Robert Clive started the British Raj. Brevet Major William Hodson brought the Mughal Sultanat to an emphatic end, by imprisoning the last cheap canada goose uk Mughal emperor, Bahadur Shah Zafar, whom the British derisively called the King of Delhi to denote how small his domain had become. Not only did Hodson handcuff Zafar, but he also, in cold blood, shot dead three of his sons, and drank their blood. Such was the hatred that the British felt towards the Indians. He then hung their canada goose clearance sale bodies at a place in Delhi still known as Khooni Darwaza (Bloody Gate). buy canada goose jacket cheap

Canada Goose Parka An odd Brit was aghast at Hodson’s cruelty, but most supported canada goose black friday sale canada goose outlet him. He raised a regiment called Hodson’s Horse, of which he became the commandant. After many name iterations, the regiment is now the 4th Horse of the Indian army. It is not by any means the most decorated nor even the most storied regiment in the Indian army. But the link to Hodson as the exterminator of the Mughal Sultanate has definitely weighed heavily on Pakistani minds. Canada Goose Parka

canada goose The Pakistanis claim that Israel shoots its guns from other people shoulders. But that is far from the case. Israel fights its own wars, courageously and manfully. Just because Israel has time and again bested Muslim armies is no reason to be derisive about it. They then make the startling canadian goose jacket statement that India is emulating Israel by firing its gun from America shoulder. canada goose

canada goose store The Pakistanis provide a long litany of India anti Pakistan activities in Afghanistan. First things first, the Afghan people have always been friendly to India. Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan, known Canada Goose Jackets as Canada Goose Outlet the Frontier Gandhi, was one of India best friends. Lost to the Pakistanis perhaps is that the Afghans were first canada goose clearance Hindu, then became Buddhist, before they were converted to Islam. canada goose store

canada goose deals Sure, India had good ties with King Zahir Shah of Afghanistan, and then when the Soviets invaded Kabul, with the communist regime there. Indira Gandhi was Canada Goose Parka often decried at home and abroad for not having criticized the Soviet invasion. She was close to the Soviet leadership. Maybe she chose to say something to them in private. canada goose coats on sale canada goose deals

canada goose clearance It unclear even today why the Soviets invaded Afghanistan. There is the access to warm waters theory, but Afghanistan is land locked. For access to warm water, the Soviets would have to enter Pakistan. But entering Pakistan was not going to be as easy a walk in the park for them as entering Afghanistan. Pakistan had a first class army armed to the teeth with the latest American weaponry and gadgetry. The Russians would have got a bloody nose. Perhaps in one of his drunken stupors, the Soviet leader, Leonid Brezhnev, just decided to traipse into Afghanistan. canada goose clearance

Canada Goose online The Pakistanis under Zia ul Haq had a choice then. Stay prepared to fight the Soviets in case the latter invaded their country or take a more aggressive stance by taking on the Soviets in buy canada goose jacket cheap Afghanistan, which is what the Americans and the Saudis wanted them to do. Zia fell under the spell of American lucre. The Americans first promised him $400 million. He dismissed that as peanuts. The Americans upped the uk canada goose ante to a billion and a half dollars. He agreed to do their bidding. Canada Goose online

Canada Goose Outlet India played little to no role in the antics of the Pakistanis, the Americans and the Soviets in uk canada goose outlet the Afghanistan of then. Then came 9/11. The Americans threatened to bomb Pakistan to the stone age. cheap Canada Goose Pakistan then dictator Musharraf capitulated. Should he have? As mentioned earlier, Pakistan has one of the finest armies in the world, with perhaps canada goose coats the best fighter pilots. If the Americans had bombed Pakistan, Pakistan would have been grievously hurt but not disabled. And then the international community would have reacted in horror. Sure, the Pakistanis supported the Taliban, which in turn cossetted Bin Laden, but there was no provable direct and obvious link then between Bin Laden and Pakistan. Canada Goose Outlet

canada goose coats on sale India tried to squeeze Pakistan by coming to the aid of the Americans, but geographical proximity to Afghanistan made the Americans canada goose uk outlet choose the Pakistanis. Musharraf said that he had taken his U canada goose store turn against the Taliban to corner India. canada goose coats on sale

canada goose coats India has invested well over two billion dollars in Afghanistan in civilian infrastructure. It trains some offices of the Afghan army, but has otherwise stayed away from the conflict there. Of this, it, and http://www.mycanadagoosejacket.org everyone else, are sure. At some point the Taliban are going to capture Kabul. India Canada Goose Coats On Sale does not want the Taliban to facilitate Pakistan in launching a new jihad in Kashmir. canada goose coats

Canada Goose Jackets The Pakistani state Canada Goose Online provides sanctuary to the Afghan Taliban, which then launches attacks in Afghanistan. The Pakistani Taliban is largely a Punjabi offshoot of the Afghan Taliban. Jihadis in Pakistan were horrified when Musharraf supported the Americans, so started a guerrilla force, the Pakistani Taliban, to take over the Pakistani state. The Pakistani army has quelled much of the rebellion. It, on the other hand, has not lifted a finger against the Lashkar e Jhangvi, a ferocious outfit that terrorizes Pakistani Shias, nor against the Lashkar e Taiba/Jamaat ud Dawa combine that terrorizes India. Canada Goose Jackets

cheap Canada Goose India had nothing to do with the US entering Afghanistan. The US has already asked India for far more than two battalions of Hodson Horse for Afghanistan; India has refused to Trump ire. Why should India walk into the minefield that is Afghanistan. The Afghan end game is nigh. The Pakistanis are doing their level best to keep India out of it. India is waiting and watching impatiently. If it has to face another jihad in Kashmir, so be it. If not, all for the better. cheap Canada Goose

Turismul aerian, pe avarii

Published

on

În plină pandemie şi criza generată de COVID aeroporturile româneşti se zbat să supravieţuiască. La mare, de exemplu, poţi judeca turismul şi după cursele aeriene. Mihail Kogălniceanu este un aeroport pustiu unde aterizează 3 avioane într-o săptămână. Situaţia este la fel peste tot. Traficul aerian de pasageri s-a prăbuşit de la începutul crizei. În aceste condiţii bulgarii au reuşit să ne ia faţa până  şi la acest capitol. Pe aeroportul din Varna sunt 10 zboruri zilnic iar la Burgas 21.

Avem o mare frumoasă cu plaje de lux, dar şi cu staţiuni încăpătoare. Avem şi un aeroport în Constanţa, pentru ca turiştii să ajungă mai uşor pe litoral. Pentru oricine, asta ar fi reţeta succesului în turism. Doar că în România, este fix pe dos. În cea mai aglomerată lună a anului, August, doar un avion aterizează pe Aeroportul Mihail Kogălniceanu. Este o cursă de la Londra, o dată pe săptămână. Turişti cât să-numeri pe degetele de la o mână.

Şi din păcate situaţia este la fel pe mai toate aeroporturile din România. Criza provocată de pandemia de Covid a dus la disponibilizări în masă, rezilieri de contracte şi zboruri anulate pe bandă rulantă. Puţine au fost situaţiile în care s-au găsit soluţii de moment. Aşa se face că în primele şase luni ale anului numărul de pasageri a scăzut de la 10 milioane la doar 4. Numai în luna iulie scăderea a fost de 75 la sută. Per total anul acesta se aşteaptă la o scădere de aproximativ 60 la sută.

În aceste condiţii ajutoarele financiare oferite de către statul român aeroporturilor şi companiilor aeriene sunt aproape vitale pentru a putea depăşi această criză.

Reprezentanţii companiilor aeriene româneşti susţin că dacă situaţia nu se va înrăutăţi va exista o stabilizare şi atunci  putem vorbi despre o revenire pentru anul viitor. Asociaţia Internaţională de Transport aerian este însă mai pesimistă şi dă ca termen de revenire la nivelul înregistrat înainte de declanşarea crizei, anul 2024.
