Re: India-US News and Discussion

US does not need India's support. It cares two hoots. for that matter India does not support itself on many issues. I completely agree. It is not America's fault that India is run by idiots. They are not doing justice to their people if they are not serving their interest even at the cost of innoce...

This is not because of lack of training, it is because of 0 intelligence input.
