General elections are often a prompt for Indian prime ministers to take strategic big bang" decisions that they put off making during most of their time in office. Atal Bihari Vajpayee could have followed up the 1998 series of nuclear tests by ordering the launch of an inter continental ballistic missile (ICBM), the design of which the Advanced Systems Laboratory, Hyderabad, had on its shelf for several years previously and was itching to test. It could have won the Bharatiya Janata Party a second term. Manmohan Singh could have derailed Narendra Modi s ambitions in 2014 had he mustered the gumption to resume thermonuclear testing on the reasonable ground that the fusion device tested in the Shakti series of tests under a BJP dispensation had fizzled. Modi likely approved the testing of the anti satellite (A SAT) weapon, a capability former chiefs of the Defence Research and Development Organisation maintain was in suspended animation for almost a decade, as insurance against his re election prospects trended in the wrong direction. Besides, it doesn t hurt to blow up a satellite in space with a direct missile hit to follow up on the Balakot air strike as a way to burnish the Prime Minister s tough guy image. But mark this: In each case, the decision was made or not made for extraneous reasons, and not to strategically advantage the country.But a test is a test is a test, and deciding to green signal it is the easy part. The more difficult thing to do, and where Indian prime ministers have tripped up, is to sustain the momentum of such tests test firings and similar seminal developments in the indigenous science and technology sphere, and then convert technology demonstration into military prowess. So, Jawaharlal Nehru, progenitor of the dual use nuclear energy programme, suddenly got cold feet when it came to testing a nuclear device and weaponizing once the plutonium reprocessing unit in Trombay went on stream and began producing bomb grade fissile material in 1964. Indira Gandhi approved the first nuclear test in 1974, and then, by barring further testing, brought the weapons programme to a shuddering halt, consigning India to strategic limbo for some 25 years. Not to be outdone, Vajpayee, despite knowing that the thermonuclear device tested in 1998 was a dud, announced a moratorium on underground testing. The reason in each case was the same strong external pressure, which is just another way of saying these prime ministers lacked the iron will to put national interest ahead of whatever puny rewards the external powers offered India for ceasing and desisting and otherwise remaining a subservient state. The question is, will Modi use the A SAT success to obtain for India comprehensively capable and deployable anti satellite missile forces able to take out enemy low earth orbit (LEO) satellites providing tactical military information and high earth orbit (HEO) satellites affording wide area strategic coverage, including spotting Indian missile launches?

Professor Michael Mann, director of the Penn State Earth System Science Center, told Newsweek that the kind of storm seen in the Midwest is providing a lot of moisture and energy from the Gulf of Mexico. As the oceans, which continue to grow warmer, and the cold air from the Arctic combine, Mann said that is how you get the perfect storm. This latest storm system, like classic Nor easters, derives its energy in part from the warm moist air off the ocean. In this case, we re talking about very warm Gulf of Mexico sea surface temperatures, providing the storm with lots of moisture and lots of energy. As the oceans continue to warm, we expect larger contrasts between cold Arctic air masses and warm oceans that they meet, and temperature contrasts are part of what drives a typical midlatitude storm, Mann told Newsweek. Add to that the extra energy from the Gulf moisture and you have all of the makings of if you ll forgive the expression a perfect storm, with large amounts of precipitation and the potential for extreme flooding from a combination of rainfall and rapid snowmelt.
