...Agni-5, launched Thursday morning from a road-mobile launcher based on Abdul Kalam Island in India's eastern state of Odisha, Indian defense ministry officials said. The missile, which can carry a nuclear warhead, flew about 3,000 miles (4,800 kilometers) in 19 minutes...
"All objectives of the mission have been successfully met," defense ministry officials said. "This successful test of Agni-5 reaffirms the country's indigenous missile capabilities and further strengthens our credible deterrence."

Amusing that India, China and Iran spend huge amounts of money and time on nuclear weapons and missiles but simply have been unable to build and staff the nuclear power plants they have planned to build. They continue to suffer from electricity shortages and pollute mightily to generate what they have.
Other than “throw weight”, what makes any missile “nuclear capable”?
The US should cut off all aid and trade with India, just as we should Pakistan and China. These are an axis of enemies that we have funded and enabled to become 3rd world sh1tholes with nuclear weapons.
India is much more of a threat to Red China than to the US.
Both are infesting the US with spies. Ruining the US with the backward cultures, tribal mores, and cheap labor. The US needs to look long term and realize we are building up our enemies, two countries that are not allies, who will stab us in the back when the time is right.
You need to update your India research. India has not received or needed foreign aid from US in decades. And the economy in India has been growing 3 times faster than US during Obama’s 8 years who was elected by some Americans who have no clue how economy works. Thanks to Trump, now the Indian economy is growing only twice as fast as US.
Bro, put the pipe down. :)
India is in an axis against us?
Why? Because big corporations and congress LET cheap work come here?
And how the #### did you tie them in with Pakistan and China?!?!! :)
Reminds me of the Marx Brothers song in “Duck Soup”
We got guns, they got guns,
All God’s children have guns
We’re gonna walk all over the battlefield
because all God’s children have guns
Now it’s “we got nukes, they got nukes...”
Much scarier than guns!
It is what it is.
“Good Heavens you can’t go with your trousers up!”
“Well they’ll never catch me any other way!”
I have EVERY Marx Brothers movie and know some other guys my age (49) who really love them.
They are timeless.
It’s the movie in my laptop right now :)
Have you ever been to India, Pakistan, and China? I have.
I have been to many countries in Europe and I can definitively say that being there gave me no clue to the government’s goings-on or whether they were alliances or enemies. Saying you were there doesn’t say much
