Everytime I see an Indian official with theses butchers and thugs I want to puke!

It is disgusting how we pander to these barely educated barbaric thugs in Myanmar just to play "tit for tat" with the Chinese.

The Indian naval chief is a far far too good a man to be in the company of those barbaric thugs and butchers.
