India wins UN award for 'Most impressive posturing'

India won the International Award "Most Impressive Posturing" at the UN today. The Indian entry consisted of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, External Afrairs Minister Salman Khurshid, and Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde.

A UN spokesperson said "The Indian government has had the most impressive political posturing after the recent killings of Indian soldiers by Pakistani soldiers. The Indian government has condemned the attacks and warned Pakistan but has made no change in its foreign policy towards the neighbour. Countries like Israel & the US have no chance in this competition because they don't posture but retaliate immediately if such a thing would happen to them. The international community is impressed by India."

India's initial entry consisted of leaders of political parties which were part of the ruling UPA who repeatedly threatened to stop supporting the central government. Because of the confidentiality clause the names of the initial entries could not be revealed. India decided to change its entry to the competition and was able to get the changes in minutes before the submission deadline.
