On August 30, modi discussed the strong and loyal nature of human domesticated animals (dogs) in a domestic radio program. He paid special tribute to Sophie and Vida, two military dogs who won medals on Indian independence day earlier this month.
Vida, a Labrador dog serving in the army, was honored for the discovery of five mines and a grenade. Sophie, a cocker terrier and a member of the special forces bomb unit of the Indian military intelligence agency, helped discover materials that could be used to make improvised explosive devices.
Our armed forces and security forces have many such brave dogs who not only live for the country, but also sacrifice themselves for it, modi told the audience Modi then urged all Indians to consider adopting dogs and choosing domestic breeds.
According to the report, modis government pursues a self-reliance policy and seeks to develop domestic production of all products India may need, whether its weapons, drugs, or, apparently, animal companions.
In the same broadcast, modi said Indian software developers should use their skills to develop video games and take a bigger share of the global entertainment market.
Why did the United States and the Soviet Union remain silent after Indias defeat in 1962?
Since the founding of the peoples Republic of China in the last century, it has always wanted to inherit the British heritage in South Asia and constantly encroach on the territory of neighboring countries. Taking advantage of the war of liberation and the war of resisting U.S. aggression and aiding Korea, China has occupied the inherent territory of South Tibet and other countries, and has been provoking China.
Before the self-defense counterattack against India, India relied on the support of the Soviet Union and the United States, so it had no fear.
Finally, in 1962, it triggered a self-defense counterattack against India, and India was defeated miserably.

In fact, before the Sino Indian War in 1962, the Soviet Union and the United States strongly supported India in terms of weaponry and expert guidance.
However, after Indias defeat, why did the Soviet Union and the United States keep silent?
Because they are busy.
Busy dealing with the Cuban missile crisis.
What can be identified is a launching pad, many buildings for launching ballistic missiles, and a medium range ballistic missile. A solid permanent base for the construction of medium and long-range ballistic missiles with a range of 2000 miles.
Moreover, the U.S. experts are convinced that the launcher is equipped with missile nuclear weapons.
Missiles in installation
Cuba is so close to the United States. For the United States, how can we allow weapons that can destroy us at our own door? We cant sleep safely! So I decided to solve the problem.
The root cause of the Cuban Missile incident can be traced back to 1959. This year, the United States deployed missile launching bases in Turkey and Italy, but the Soviet Union found out.
In line with the excellent tradition of friendly exchanges between the two sides during the cold war, the Soviet Union also had to pay a tribute, and turned its attention to Latin America, which has been regarded as the backyard of its home by the United States.
Its so sleepy. Some people deliver pillows. Cuba has come to the door!
At first, the relations between Cuba and the United States were good, but later, the leading members of the new Cuban government changed greatly, and most of the important departments of the government were in the hands of those who advocated radical policies.
The U.S. government is worried that the change of Cubas high-level will cause the whole Latin American region to lose control and shake the influence of the United States in Latin America, so it has decided to take the initiative first.
After all, if the back garden is disordered, then the door of your home will not be protected. Cuba is too close to the United States.
On January 5, 1961, the United States suddenly announced that it had severed diplomatic relations with Cuba. At the same time, it began to impose sanctions on Cuba from the economic aspect, trying to force Cuba to comply by cutting off its economic lifeline.
The United States looks at the soft is not good, then come to the hard bar.
Soft is not good, hard is not. Therefore, the United States government continued to exert pressure on Cuba and adopted a policy of hostility towards Cuba.
The pressure is so great that Cuba cant bear it and can only seek assistance. Looking around the world, the big brother of the Soviet Union is capable of and hostile to the United States.
Some of the 60 missiles placed by the Soviet Union in Cuba have a range of 1000 miles and a few of them have a range of 1500 to 2000 miles, which can avoid the early warning system of the United States. Therefore, in fact, it will double the ability of the Soviet Union to attack the United States and change the strategic position of the Soviet Union.
And each missile carries a nuclear warhead that is 20 or 30 times more powerful than the atomic bomb in Hiroshima. Its terrible to think about it.
In addition, the Soviet Union also provided Cuba with dozens of Il-28 jet bombers (our countrys H-5 was developed with reference to Il-28), plus more than 3500 military and technical experts (many of them should be those who were withdrawn from China).

In the air, send us bombers carrying nuclear warheads into the sky around Cuba.

At sea, escorted by 68 squadrons and 8 aircraft carriers, a huge fleet of 90 warships was launched. The U.S. ships from Florida to Puerto Rico formed an arc, blocking the Cuban waters.

On the ground, in Florida and neighboring states, the United States has assembled the largest landing forces since World War II to fight, and US bases around the world are on alert.
Cuba was besieged, and the Soviet Union panicked this time. The blockade, which could not be broken for a long time but was increasingly strengthened, was not conducive to the Soviet Union. The longer the blockade lasted, the greater the losses of the Soviet Union compared with the United States.
Therefore, the two countries began to send a letter to the United States. The content of the letter is basically that we should both exercise restraint and fight as much as possible. We should never have a nuclear war. In exchange, the Soviet Union withdrew Cubas missiles and the United States withdrew Turkish missiles.
The United States did not agree.
All U.S. nuclear and conventional forces around the world have been ordered to stand by, and a large invading force has gathered in Florida. The two sides were at daggers drawn, and the war was on the verge.
In the end, the Soviet Union compromised.
On November 11, 1962, all 42 Soviet missiles deployed in Cuba were withdrawn. Then all the bombers were withdrawn.
In response, the United States also lifted the blockade against Cuba.
The Caribbean has returned to its former calm.
At this time, China has also defeated India and announced a cease-fire and retreat.
India is ambitious but does not have the strength to match it. In the end, it can only lift a stone and hit itself in the foot in order to seek benefits beyond national strength with speculative psychology.
