Meanwhile RR has rushed to Beijing offering to set up a jet engine plant there. Of course, this has no bearing whatsoever on Anglo - Canada - Australia - NZ - UK trade bloc in the making - the best thing which happened to the UK since mom's apple pie.
Engines don't determine success in war but aren't they diesel engines?

Not possible, membership is only open to countries that are at least partially in Europe. So India would have to acquire some European soil first. Perhaps they can invade and annex Great Britain; just so that Pakistan doesn't do it first.
Not so, see Iceland and the EU will soon tire of that restriction as their greed for land grows.

India could take back Calais and Paris from Afghanistan and set up shop there.

The point is that the Russian stuff you buy will be useless against China, and given Chinese backing of Pakistan, it probably won't be much use against them either.

The set we choose is aligned with allies and completely separate from the Sino-Russian collection.
China Reverse engineers & hacks a hell of USA defense products & future products underdevelopment - but you can feel as good as you like

To some extent that's true via hacks and espionage, but China has first hand exclusive access to Russian equipment.

The only fair point here is RR like so many other British industries are looking at an extended death sentence with Brexit - hard or soft and are mulling their options which aren't many or too rosy. Like moving to mainland Europe or Asia (except China) or China. That's what RR is doing and in a manner befitting an appeaser will grant the Chinese their wish only in the hope that the Devil would consume it last.

What civilized addresseal, gives a shining beacon of intellectualism - It often precedes, when the subject get a permanent brain-freeze & inability to conclude his points logically, that one comes to mere name calling.
