Washington was and remains inimical to Indian interests
"Circus dogs jump when the trainer cracks the whip. But the really well-trained dog is the one that turns somersaults when there is no whip-" George Orwell
“From scholarships and training programs for officers to promises of Green Cards and jobs for family members, America is doing whatever it takes to build a lobby for itself in India” -Rahul Bedi in The Hindu.
“To which business groups are Mukherjee [Pranab] beholden? Why was [he] chosen over Montek” [Montek Singh Ahluwalia as finance minister] US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Clinton in the WikiLeak cable
'India and the US may never be allies' In an interview with an Indian website, Strobe Talbott , a former deputy secretary of state in the Clinton administration and now president of the conservative Brookings Institution , Washington, DC think tank , the kind that guided , cajoled Washington into wars into Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya declared:
"And, by the way, one reason we may never be or not, in the foreseeable future, is because there is still a huge constituency in support of India's non-aligned status, despite the fact that I would say that non-alignment and the non-aligned movement is very much an artifact of the Cold War."
This was part of build up of US soft diplomacy to cajole and encourage Indian Corporate Counts and PR outlets led by the likes of The Indian Express editor in chief (who, in his 2003 Op-ed described illegal US invasion of Iraq --“– process of change (is)–to modernize and democratize and restructure the Islamic world – into Saudi Arabia and then every other part of the region where militant Islam breeds ---Musharraf is not laughing –does that work to our benefit or detriment? This war will not be about oil but about militant Islam and everybody’s future. This is the bigger picture –“Thus spoke Sherlock Holmes to his Doctor Watson readers in his paper.
But then his alter ego Thomas Friedman of New York Times had declared the US criminal enterprise in Iraq as the noblest US mission to promote democracy. Nearly a million and half Iraqis have been killed since 2003 and the country destroyed, even the Mongols would feel proud of.
The Express has another promoter of US interests, one Raja Mohan. He even recommended India join the EU-Nato’s so-called human intervention i.e. bombing and killing civilians. The West has confiscated about US$ 30 billion of Libyan money, as it had of many billions of Iraq in 2003 and of Iran in 1979. Raja Mohan continues with his pro-US outpourings is now back at a New Delhi center for US corporate propaganda. Of course he is compensated and occupied some US endowed University chair or another. Why go after only those who enjoyed the hospitality of ISI financed Ghulam Nabi Fai.
Talking of conflict of interest! It is beyond Indian way of thinking. Look at the shameless drama in Karnataka .India has become a caricature of US caricature of democracy.
Coming back to the artifact of the Cold War, as if it did ever stop. It was and is relentlessly pursued by Washington and its allies aka poodles and protectorates.
"The New American Cold War"
Stephen F. Cohen in an article "The New American Cold War " wrote in 10 July 2006 issue of US magazine ,'The Nation" that "A tacit (and closely related) US denial that Russia has any legitimate national interests outside its own territory, even in ethnically akin or contiguous former republics such as Ukraine, Belarus and Georgia." Late Richard Holbrooke, former US point man for Af-Pak had condemned Russia for promoting a pro-Moscow government in neighboring Ukraine, where Russia has centuries of shared linguistic, marital, religious, economic and security ties and declared ' that far-away Slav nation part of "our core zone of security."
"Even more, a presumption that Russia does not have full sovereignty within its own borders, as expressed by constant US interventions in Moscow's internal affairs since 1992 -- included an on-site crusade by swarms of American "advisers," to direct Russia's "transition" from Communism;
So has the cold war finished! If US can treat Russia like that than what to expect from spineless Indians, ever ready to love US presidents deeply and singing praises of British colonialism .These are signs of genetic mutation embedded in a colonized and enslaved mind.
So what Talbolt says is that if you are not with us you are against us .Be an ally like Pakistan , Saudi Arabia ,Egypt, Yemen and others .Do not expect much change with those suffering from Washington Consensus Syndrome and controlling Indian foreign policy. What can 79 years old Foreign Minister Krishna contribute .PM wants a dummy Foreign minister who pleases Washington and PMO surrounds itself for foreign policy advice those who kowtow to Washington.
The fact is that US and India’s strategic interests have rarely coincided fully and are unlikely any time soon, but Washington wants New Delhi to give in. US gifted defense grants and hardware to Pakistan, which has always been used against India and not China or USSR. Washington let Pakistan complete its nuke program .NPT was created primarily as an instrument against India
US gifted billions in 1980s and trained terror groups which now attack India at will. David Headley, an FBI double agent was complicit in 2611 rampage in Mumbai. If India had a lawyer with courage and patriotism, a case could be filed in a Mumbai court charging FBI for complicity in 26/11 as a case has been filed against ISI in USA.
Let these supporters of Washington or trumpets state, when has Washington ever taken India’s interests into account .The nuclear energy deal? Has George Bush much else to show except disasters in his foreign policy. Did we get a clean waiver from NSG? As claimed .Talbot and his ilk and his supporters in India wanted India to buy US fighter aircraft and be tied to Washington’s wishes and policies regarding Indian security. India must sign nuclear liability bill! So what if there is Bhopal or Fukushima like catastrophes.
In the name of promoting ‘democracy ‘ murders and criminal acts are perpetrated daily and violation of international and human laws has become a second nature to US and its European poodles with help from the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Freedom House and George Soros' Open Society Institute. The NED has four affiliate institutes: The International Republican Institute (IRI), the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs (NDI), the Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE), and the American Center for International Labor Solidarity (ACILS) among others.
Washington openly allots money in its budget for promoting rebellion, mayhem and even terror acts against governments, which do not surrender to US interests and dictates.
