Why did the missiles go unnoticed?

A rather cocky and misguided piece appeared in Times of India called "Yes, Pakistan has more bombs than us" after Hina Khar's Indian visit. Mr. Vishwanathan, in order to not sound explicitly sexist, ties himself in various contradictory contortions. He first insinuates Khar was all style and no substance, discusses her and some other beauties and even accuses Pakistan of wanting to “evade issues” by tactically using good-looking female envoys. But then he asks “why is Indian foreign policy style so dull and listless”. So does he approve of glamour or not?
The writer seems to suffer from a version of the Madonna-whore complex...
