CRamS while on the subject of losing the plot, may I point out that the above statement is a cognitive construct. It is a way of reaching a comforting conclusion that conforms to your beliefs when confronted with information that says exactly the opposite. What I find unique about your posts is not love of India or contempt for anyone, but a deep respect for America and belief in its power. You do not want to step outside of any box that does not accommodate the thought that the US is invincible or denies that it can be weak - especially when faced with some seriously smart foes. Having said that, this attitude that you carry with so much faith in "God and America" is common to a lot of patriotic Americans. Nothing wrong in that, but your speciality in my view is in choosing to contest any claim or statement made by anyone that the US may be weak in some way, especially with regard to Pakistan. You know that everyone agrees with you about Indian weakness. For you that agreement is insufficient. It has to be accompanied by an acknowledgement of US strength. You cannot countenance the idea that the US may be weak. That is your belief, and not everyone else's belief.
I think this is where you lost the plot along with the nation that you respect so deeply. I am just putting this down for the sake of saying what I think. I am not interested in proving that you are wrong or that I am right. Events will inexorably show what is happening in the world. I am just an observer of events and people.
