Philip, I think the US got deep intelligence on Indian military and political weakness during the short liaison mission in aftermath of 1962 Chinise war. This went as input to Pal planning for 1965.

Nice article on Indo Iranian ties

https://swarajyamag.com/world/reality-c ... ional-ties

Advocates India adopting a pragmatic and hard nosed approach rather than through any rose tinted glasses invoking some nonsensical shared heritage

If at all we did have some commonalities that was millennia ago

Now they are as rabid an Islamic country as another , who have never really stood for us either

They are also untrustworthy as a business partner

When they suffer from sanctions they give us oil field exploration rights and talk up Chabahar Port , but when the sanction ease off they go back on their agreements

They are what they are. Mooslem fanatics. About time we wash ourselves of these idiotic "ties" that are nothing but some romantic notions of shared culture. Whatever that was good was subsumed a 1000 years ago under the tide of Islam.

With large swaths of Iraq and Syria falling under their control, they will muscle into Afghanistan and Pakistan as well.

X Posted from the “India-US relations: News and Discussions IV” thread.

Excerpt from US State Department’s Daily Press Briefing of August 10:

Heather Nauert
Spokesperson
Department Press Briefing
Washington, DC
August 10, 2017 ……………………..

QUESTION: Afghanistan?

MS NAUERT: Okay, last question. Afghanistan. Hi.

QUESTION: What’s your stand on Senator McCain’s Afghan strategy which he unveiled this morning? Have you seen this?

MS NAUERT: Mm-hmm. So I’m certainly aware of Senator McCain’s proposal. By the way, it was great to see Senator McCain back here in Washington just a few weeks ago, a very strong and tough man. And as someone whose own father experienced the same illness that he had, I was really proud to see him walk back into Washington.

That personal note aside, let me just say the Afghan review policy, which I know a lot of people are very curious about, is still under way. There have been a lot of conversations and negotiations with the President’s national security team. Of course, that includes Secretary Tillerson as part of that. We are looking at this as not just a solution to Afghanistan, but also a broader concern that incorporates India and Pakistan as well as a regional solution. We just don’t have that plan. And by the way, the White House will roll out that plan, but we just don’t have that done just yet. It’s still under review, okay?


If this “broader concern that incorporates India” involves doing an Equal=Equal with the Mohammadden Terrorism Fomenting Islamic Republic by way of allaying their paranoia and/or limiting our role Afghnaistan, the US should be told to FO. Anyway as this is still “under review”, wait and watch.

X Posted from the India-US relations: News and Discussions IV thread.

Prime Minister Modi thanked President Trump for his strong leadership uniting the world against the North Korean menace.


If true that this is indeed what our Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, I am truly disgusted at this abject grovelling our Prime Minister. I say that as North Korea is a minor direct security threat in comparison to the menance of the Mohammadden Terrorism Fomenting Islamic Republic of Pakistan, Peoples Republic of China etc., as at worst North Korea represents a menace only from the limited standpoint of proliferating missile technology to the Islamic Republic. If on the other hand this is a bit of Self Aggandisement by Donald Trump then India must officially deny.

Bollocks to any “Half Wit Saudi Princes”, “It's in our national interest to flatter them” type arguents that were trotted out in the Hindustan Times article posted by me on this same page of this thread (Clicky)
