Deans wrote:Both Biden and Kerry's sons work for the same private equity company. It is partly funded by the Chinese. They have done deals with countries just after either parent visited. The $ 2.5 Billion they raised is unusual for a new PE firm. That's nepotism which seems as bad as anything in India. What the actual facts are, may not be as relevant as perception. I think this will damage Biden more than Trump, because most of those who feel Trump's actions were wrong wouldn't vote for him anyway.

Right, Biden will lose more votes due to Huntergate than Trump will lose due to the phone call.

There is a considerable slice of Democratic voters who vote on principles and ethics. They will never vote for Trump but may go for a third party candidate or stay home. In key states like PA, Ohio, Michigan, FL etc., even a few votes can make a difference.

Even in Texas, which Democrats have a slim chance of turning blue, the loss of a significant number of Indian-American votes due to disillusionment with Democratic Party's policies on India, might make a difference to Democratic aspirations.

Not clear what point you are making here. I was referring to Democrats who defected from Clinton in 2016 because they were uncomfortable with her ethics and went with Stein or abstained.

I don't think there is a "considerable slice" or otherwise of Democratic Party voters who vote on principles and ethics. Not too many voters of any hue vote based on Principles and Ethics. They vote based on self-interest.

It is a hasty generalization to say that "considerable slice" of Democrats are more ethical than everybody else, just based on who they are voting for or who they are voting against.

The bottom line will be whether the US as in the past, despite continuing atrocious Paki behaviour ,throws them a lifeline.

2. Not sure how persuasive Trump can be with Bakistan to hand over GB to India. You realize that it will mean a loss of direct road access to China and India's direct access to Afghanistan and its western border, two of its greatest fears.

Interesting, why does the US ffear this I thought it would be happy to contain chinese ambitions where possible. And how does India's access to Afg hurt them if they want India to have boots on the ground in Afg

For a route to Afghanistan via GB, India will have to fight it out with Bakistan and possibly China. Why China? Because with India in control of GB it will mean a loss of China's land access to the Arabian sea and an direct entry of India into Afghanistan where the Chinese have plans. Kabab me haddi.
Chinese access via CPEC doesn't seem anything to write home about so far

3. Assuming India has capture GB after fending off both Bakistan and China, we have to find a workable route to Afghanistan. The thing is GB is highly mountainous with very few viable path through the area. Remember the path has to be cross into Afghanistan across the GB/Wakhan border. It cannot be a India-Bakistan-Wakhan or a India-China-Wakhan crossing.
Roads on paper are no good. I would suggest proponents of this strategy to check the maps and suggest a probable path. It should be a learning experience for sure no matter what the outcome. There are a couple of other question on this very topic that I had jotted down a while back in another post. Linking viewtopic.php?f=1&t=7757&start=1680#p2377907

Yes, this an issue. There is a route that goes via Kargil - Gilgit - one via Skardu (Hwy 1) and the Astore Rd, which is more direct that gets you as far as Gilgit and Karimabad. After that, India will have to build about 100 miles worth of pliable roadway to the Wakhan corridor. Not easy for sure, but worth a thought. Total route will be about 300 miles from kargil to Kabul. Circuitous but possibly doable with air support.


Now consider other factors.

4. US may not be ready to let go of the bakis. Othewise, they would have taken the fight directly or or encouraged Afghan forces to go after the bunnies in bakistan. This inspite of suffering quite a number of casualties at the hands of baki backed bunnies. That is very suggestive.

The problem for the US is now purely public opinion, which is totally in favor of pulling out. Trump knows this well so close to elections. The Afghans need backup, esp. air support, which the US can't give without stationing some decent number of forces there. Hence the mulling about keeping a contractor force with a fleet of USAF assets under their command. If the Afghan govt forces get air cover, they should be able to manage and ruin TSP's schemes. But unfortunately, if the US pulls out air support wont be forthcoming and the war becomes very even, often tipping the scales in favor of bunnies backed by pukes

IF my reading of the US-Baki relationship is correct, it is likely that the US will apply its heavy thumb to tilt the scale in favor of bakis on our GB plans.
At the very least, the US/NATO simply refuse to bankroll the Indian play in GB and Afghanistan. Then what? Is India willing to build through GB to Afghanistan and defend Afghanistan on its own money?

No. IMHO this option is only truly viable if the US/Nato bankroll it and at least tactily support GB takeover. Not possible otherwise. But for reasons pointed out earlier I don't see why this wont work to their advantage. Afterall, they have a much bigger fish to fry in China right now. It should be amply clear to any babu in SD whether a rising India or China will present a greater threat to US hegemony.

5. There is another interesting bit (fact/analysis/whatever) on Afghanistan from while back. I heard that Najibulla would have survived but for stoppage of funds from USSR/Russia. While the payment was prompt, the Afghan government forces kept Kabul protected and with that Najibulla regimen.

Perhaps the situation is the same at present. US might pull out but keep funding the Afghan forces and thus keep bunnies out of Kabul. Americans have trained Afghan forces and they should know. Why give money to India and bring it in when the same money could keep Kabul from falling to the bunnies.
Possibly, but short sighted imho. The bunnies with TSP will get revenues via the opium markets, more than enough to make it difficult for the Afghans to truly get any advantage over them. Net net, bunny breeding will continue unabated presenting a nasty threat to Indian and later world interests.There is another aspect to this - and this will be a great loss. Both the US and India have invested billions of $s and decades in developing infrastructure and institutions in Afghanistan, will they both be so willing to let these be destroyed?

US does not fear this. It just doesn't have the leverage necessary to get bakis to back off on two areas of its (bakis) core concerns wrt India. 1. Denial of direct land access to China 2. India direct access to Afghanistan and it western border and thus create a 2 front scenario for itself. US hasn't been able to persuade bakistan so far on Afghanistan & Taliban either.

For a route to Afghanistan via GB, India will have to fight it out with Bakistan and possibly China. Why China? Because with India in control of GB it will mean a loss of China's land access to the Arabian sea and an direct entry of India into Afghanistan where the Chinese have plans. Kabab me haddi.

May be true BUT if China wants to make a play for a base/deployment in the Arabian sea/ Persian gulf then the land route become very useful in bypassing all US choke points. The road is already there and the "E" is CEPC may not be the most important component as far as China is concerned.

3. Assuming India has capture GB after fending off both Bakistan and China, we have to find a workable route to Afghanistan. The thing is GB is highly mountainous with very few viable path through the area. Remember the path has to be cross into Afghanistan across the GB/Wakhan border.

Circuitous but possibly doable with air support.

Kargil to Kabul via Skardu - Gilgit - Sost bazar - Irshad pass (GB/Wukhan border) - Kisht Ab - Gaz Khun - Vark - Panjshir - Charikar is by my approximation about 600 miles drawing straight line between the points. It could easily require a 1,000 mile road constrained by the topography as the area is. Assuming half to be existing baki roads, we will still need about 500 miles of road done in one of the most difficult terrains.

Now consider other factors.

4. US may not be ready to let go of the bakis. Othewise, they would have taken the fight directly or or encouraged Afghan forces to go after the bunnies in bakistan. This inspite of suffering quite a number of casualties at the hands of baki backed bunnies. That is very suggestive.

It should be amply clear to any babu in SD whether a rising India or China will present a greater threat to US hegemony.
While the public opinion is certainly in favor of pulling out my point wasn't just about the current pickle that US finds itself. US has a long-term interest in project Bakistan that they have taken over from the Brits. The basic premise of this project is that bakistan is needed in one form or another to keep India tied down to the Indian Sub-continent and the IOR region. That rational has not diminished, infact it will strengthen further as India makes progress. The only fly in the ointment is the rise of China which is striking an independent path, for which the US needs India as a balancer. My guess is that US will cheer for India getting stronger to balance China while still ensuring the survival of Bakistan just in case they need a rabid dog to bring India to heel at a future date.

Essentially, US is interested in the survival of bakistan for its long-term goals in the sub-continent and may not be willing to throw bakis under the Indian bus by handing over GB much less facilitating unhindered Indian access to Afghanistan via GB.

As far as air support is concerned, the USAF may pull out but the Air support for Afghan forces may be outsourced to contractors. IIRC, A snippet regarding some such discussion was posted by one member a while back. That kind of makes all the parts work, US pulls out officially but keeps the money flow to Afghan forces backed by Air support & Special ops contingent deployed by contractors. Keeps India out while still not allowing bunnies to take over Kabul. India will be cheered by US to grow and balance China. Bakistan will be happy to have its playground in Afghanistan without India.

Both the US and India have invested billions of $s and decades in developing infrastructure and institutions in Afghanistan, will they both be so willing to let these be destroyed?
My latest note just above for background.

It all depends on what the US wants out of Afghanistan and Bakistan. US could have taken the war to bakistan but did not. The latest deal that was discussed between US and bunnies was only premised on safety of the western world. That is another hint. The next marker in this saga will come @ FATF. My bet, as also of others, is that bakistan will escape blacklisting but continue on the greylist. That would be another clear signal that US is not interested in demolishing bakistan but just keeping it under pressure. FATF is a wonderful opportunity to push bakistan further towards the edge without fighting but is the US interested?

As for the bunnies, the bakis would perhaps garuntee the bunnies keep their focus away from America. On investment, US could be willing to cut their losses and count their savings in years to come rather than worry about the sunk money.

That will leave India alone to figure out a way to counter the bunnies as well as protect its investment in Afghanistan. Not a good prospect but one that India should start planning for.

External affairs minister S Jaishankar held meetings with several top US officials in Washington during his three-day trip. India and the United States discussed an entire range of issues from strategic ties and the Indo-Pacific region to the movement of specialized workers and the welfare of Indian students in America.While no readouts were available of the meetings, barring his meeting with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the external affairs minister has tweeted about them.About his meeting with the acting secretary of homeland security Kevin McAleenan, Jaishankar wrote on Twitter that they discussed “promoting lawful travel, ensuring flow of talent and protecting the interests of students”.The “flow of talent” was a reference presumably to Indians travelling to the US on H-1B visas for high-skilled workers, a programme that has been under intense scrutiny of the Trump administration with increasing rejections and requests for more information, which make the process more time consuming and expensive.The nature of the discussions about the “interests of students” could not be ascertained, but Indian officials have been disturbed by the targeting — “entrapment” — of Indian students by homeland security officials using fake universities such as the University of Farmington in Michigan in February.
US Defense Secretary Mark Esper said in a tweet he and Jaishankar discussed “military cooperation, regional security, technology and future opportunities for us to strengthen our bond”.He added, the two countries “share mutual strategic values and interests, and there are many opportunities for an increased partnership.”

Rutgers knows a thing or two about Nazis all right:

Private Bias and Public Responsibility: Anti-Semitism at Rutgers in the 1920s and 1930s

That ugly Rutgers professor claims an organization in colonial India merely “appreciated” nazi achievements in German nation building while a state funded university is entitled to execute on core nazi ideology of anti-semitism

But don’t worry folks, as per that professor’s supporters in Rutgers, all that must have happened in the pre-historic 1920s and 30s when nazis were not at their peak and no harm was done to a non-Christian minority faith. Am sure the figures in Rutgers who were powerful enough to implement such policies, have more than a passing appreciation of Hitler

More recently:
Education Dept. Reopens Rutgers Case Charging Discrimination Against Jewish Students
The new head of civil rights at the Education Department has reopened a seven-year-old case brought by a Zionist group against Rutgers University, saying the Obama administration, in closing the case, ignored evidence that suggested the school allowed a hostile environment for Jewish students.

Let us wait to see what they are going to do about the formal complaint lodged with the University re. hate speech. If they don't do anything, we, i.e. GoI, should deny Prof. Truschke's visa application to come to India in the interest of not disturbing communal harmony.

Well, on second thought, maybe not. She should be allowed to speak and then questioned in an academic setting about antisemitism and racism in the US.

GoI should revoke her visa. If she tries to board a flight from EWR, she may or may not be allowed, but certainly at DEL or BOM, she should be deported at the cost of the airline.

There are two ways to make Rutgers see reason.

1. All Indian American students of Rutgers unite and do protest march, etc., against anti Hindu mindset and faulty scholarship of Audrey. If someone if the Calibre of Su Swamy could be kicked out of Harvard by student action alone, why not little fish like Audrey.

2. Indian govt should take action against both Audrey and Rutgers. Visa revocation for the former and student loan hurdles for the later.

Next person to support Pakistan's propaganda : Democratic senator from Maryland (BRFites supporting Democrats please...) who was born in Karachi...

In his appeal, Hollen highlighted the crucial India-US ties but also noted the "current humanitarian crisis in Kashmir". It also asked India to restore communications in Kashmir and release those detained

I guess it runs in the family as dad presided over Bangladesh pogrom and got himself elected as Islamic Chair


Decades later, Dr. Van Hollen said his personal judgment was that the creation of Bangladesh was inevitable because of ethnic, cultural and linguistic differences in the region. Publicly in the early 1970s, he presented the U.S. case for continuing economic and military aid to Pakistan in order to maintain political leverage over Pakistan’s president, Agha Mohammad Yahya Khan.

Because Pakistan was seen as a key intermediary in this process, Nixon and Kissinger were very reluctant to take any action against Pakistan which might upset the evolution of the U.S.- Chinese relationship through the good offices of Pakistan, which had at that time a good relationship with China,” Dr. Van Hollen said in a 1990 oral history.

USA: another Dhimmicrat weighs in with strident pro-Pakistan Hinduphobia on the Kashmir issue.

Elizabeth Warren.

If she is nominated, all self-respecting Hindus should dedicate themselves to her humiliating defeat in November 2020.

The US-India partnership has always been rooted in our shared democratic values. I'm concerned about recent events in Kashmir, including a continued communications blackout and other restrictions. The rights of the people of Kashmir must be respected

Maybe time to ask her to show more concern for Native Americans (her tribe after all) and about the continuing shootings in American cities. Downtown Kansas city shooting yesterdin just killed 4 times the number of people dead by violence in CashMore since Aug. 5.

It’s a shakedown. She’s telling the Indian community to donate to her or she’ll bring up cashmore. I’m sure several gullible people will donate to her.
