It's Only a Model!

At first, this description of the Chinese creating a 450 x 350 km "scale model" of some real-estate in India is kinda weird. Then, when you start thinking about why anyone would want to create a gigantic scale model of disputed real-estate in someone else's back yard, well, things take a rather sinister turn.

There's a reason India has gotten a whole lot friendlier to us lately, and it got nothin' to do with Appu and the Kwik-e-mart.

eMail this entry!

wouldn't it be a bit clearer if you said it was a scale model of a 450x350km stretch of land? I thought they were actually creating a model that was 450km on one side. They've got the manpower to do it, but still.

As to the content, that's actually a very scary thing. Nothing like practice bombing runs for those who can't afford VR.
