Re: Understanding the US - Again

The description of the voting difficulties in the US State of Georgia sounds like it comes from Democrat-run polling localities, written by totally unbiased Democrat papparazzi. They have always been like that, since Reconstruction. Not so long ago they had Literacy Tests. In Republican ones it was...

Re: Understanding the US- Again

Facts do matter on occasion:

1) The report in question is by the Congressional Research Service -- an arm of the GOP controlled Congress.

2) Nothing to do with anything 'Slick Willie' did in 1999 or 'Obammer' did at anytime

3) For the record, the GOP controlled the both Houses between in 1998.

MSA was Union Minister in 2008 -- I suspect any intelligence/security information that he received would surely have been passed to Pakistan. Most likely the same with information that went to VP Ansari.

In 1960, the WB was in a position to punish India if India was found to have violated the provisions of the treaty. India was dependent on WB aid. Also, WB jobs were a huge carrot for Indian IAS officers.
