What US does with finesse and aplomb is use its super power status power cleverly keep the debate focused on its interests. In the case of DK, they exploit this technical legality and bring out in the open conditions of maids, servants etc based on as I said strict technical legalities. And then of course, lace that with gory details on India's pitfalls. Thats what all the condescending US editorials and media are focused on.
The US public, racist and jingoistic to begin with fall for that crap. Then of course, Indian uncle Toms, useless Indian liberals, self-loathing, India-hating Indians, and naive ones (like the kujiwaal type aam admis disgusted with Indian corruption, VIP privilage etc) fall for this US is just and fair and free balderdash hook, line, and sinker.
Buried in all this is US conduct (how much they paid maids and servants in 3rd world countries), US history, US double standards, US underclass and the indignities they suffer, how they use Uncle Toms of color to perpetuate stereotypes and their policy, and above all, real motives of US in this case (executed by those in state dept and their Preet barara and Nisha desai type slaves), and can never surface.
Has anybody monitored what TSP RAPE is making of this? They must be having a ball. Ditto Chinese.
There is a silver lining in everything. And what this legal rape of an Indian diplomat has shown is that how hollow, how skin deep all this nonsense of India US strategic relations has been ever since this these has been trumpeted after Clinton danced with Rajasthani rural women. This rape brings out where India really figures in US scheme of things. Its good that this reality has come out. And its time for nationalists in India to introspect.
India & US are not natural allies. US is a racist, colonial, xenophobic, capitalist empire whose natural allies are its white brethren in Europe and of course pays slavish obeisance to Israel. While this does not mean India go down the route of Islamist rif raff, burning effigies, etc, but Indian foreign policy must take this hard reality into question. After all, nobody can dispute US's undoubted might as a superpower, and India needs US much more than US needs India.
Above all, India media must celebrate & appreciate India's native Hindu civilization, not exhibit the type of euphoria over slum dog millionaire awards. Such slavishness only invites contempt and derision. A lot can be learnt from this episode.
