Azi | 6 years ago | Reply This might sting the Indian defense minister a little more than an average Indian. Must be sad times for them, watching their investments going up in the air. I wonder on average how much money they spent bribing, training, and equipping them to carry out their dirty work in Pakistan. Only if ISI played a similar role, India would be in chaos.
