This one is the elephant in the corner of the room everyone isn't
talking about.

That the Indians have actually caught some one when it certainly isn't
in their interests to have done so (and unlike the other countries
where Israelis have been blown up) shows just how independent the
Indian police actually are.

""In 1987 we had the AIM-9P, which was designed to reject flares, and when we used US flares against it would ignore them and go straight for the target. We had the Soviet flares – they were dirty, and none of them looked the same – and the AIM-9P said 'I love that flare'."

I wonder if the AIM-9P export customers were warned about this.
