WE ARE AT WAR!

What's that you say, we're not? I say we are... it's the "Citizens of India" vs. "The Samata Party". And they're winning. Tired of the infighting in the Samata party, they're taking the war to the skies and to the rails.

Here are some numbers.......

In the red corner, the Railways Minister Mr. Nitish "Say you're sorry" Kumar.

Train accidents this years - 17
Number of deaths - 384
Percentage of manual (read, driver/engineer's) error - 65%

Quote of the day : "When I resigned after the Gaisal tragedy, the opposition dubbed it as a political stunt and drama. Since my resignation will provide no solution to the problem, I have decided to continue (as minister) and do my best to ensure a safe journey to millions of passengers who travel by train every day"

In the blue corner, the Defence Minister Mr. George "Tehelka" Fernandes.

Training flight accidents in the past 3 years - 48
Number of deaths - 56
"Supposed" number of technical flaws in the past 5 years - 2 (?)

Quote of the day : "Have a heart! The marriage market of our MiG pilots is coming down and we are angered by this." - Air Chief Marshal S. Krishnaswamy.

Oh, just as a basis for comparison, the US Army suffered 213 casualties in the war in Iraq.
