That Kissinger statement and it being carried by big-media is troubling. Looks like there is still a significant bunch of people in US, who give credence to a 97 year old gent who has a very patchy record of misjudging China and more importantly, India.
Beyond that, Prez-elect Biden will follow whatever their intel-MIC community says, like any good-boi President and his sole election promise was just that - he will not rock the boat unlike the goofy incumbent. The reason why he acted as the LGB dropped into that Bernie's maoistic crowd is for nothing else. He himself kept saying that "I shalt follow whatever people with curved foreheads or bad hair-cuts says, even if against commonsense because, scientists and jernails never went wrong and my clergy is too busy with boys to have time to advise me nowadays". For americans, certainly does not seem to be an improvement over the outgoing batty-old gent, except for the reassurance this guy is a batty old bobble-head.
Hyoman-rites: From being just a comical DC sideshow from the '80s to the top post, the horse he rode atop to presidency is Prez Obama. And he is the one who pivoted to Asia against Cheen etc, not because of any love for India's well being, but what he was advised by the intel-jernails. Though Prez O preached around a lot about human-rights and yet when time came, obediently hugged PM Modi without much fanfare. I dont think his understudy is going to do any different and Mylapore Mami's record against humans of CA are not exactly stellar, as pointed out by her current boss during early stages.
Internal situation: As a candidate who milked the unrest and death around BLM, like any good riot-inciting politician of this world, he will shut that movement down quickly since his objective is met. His "Antifa is an idea" comment was a dead give-away on who was inciting the rioting and looting with better plausible deniability than that "Stand down boys" kind of silly comment. Trump (and the other Republican leadership) were too incompetent to not able to explain what that was all about to the voters and that is ok to watch from a distance.
Hashtag Movements: BLM and MeToo movements are more or less going to get stamped out. One served its electoral purpose and the other turned into a Frankenstein for the Prez-elect, but was quickly run to ground by the handlers without much fallout. Despite lots of pressure inside his party to create a diversionary "Burn the 45th at the stake" using both these hastags, might not happen because it can cause the flames to spread in his own direction
Immigration: Mexican fence, despite all polite noises, will stay, just like Gitmo. It might get repurposed into growing say, passion fruit, which has very high anti-oxidant value for hipster shakes. It was always an unpleasant decision, but to have a fence that provides better throttle-control for your neo-slave labour market during tough economic times was a serious requirement of Wall Street and an unpleasant man took the fall for it. So everything is fine. Only diversion might be a UAV or ground sensor based electronic fencing, which might be more budget friendly. Back to Injun matters - one hopes the post-Covid recovery means better quotas for H1 and more GCs for injuns wanting to add on to their electorate, since he will listen to the curve-heads of Industry, instead of going all transactional like his predecessor.
His government will make our jingo fan-boi crowd drown in own drool with mega-brochuritis not seen since Reagan-era. All sorts of experimental weapons will be productionized and deployed around the world. We are in for a good show, boys
He will be pushed around by China, because the cheenis know he has to act out the good-boi President image, but only upto a certain point. As usual, Cheen will miscalculate the limits and do something stupid around the world. And as usual some here in this forum will call it Cheen's Sun-tzu brilliance. But if situation demands, he will also obediently conjure up dossiers to slam down in UN and cobble up coalition of unwillings etc for next bush-war level operation. This is where Kissinger's comment above is troubling, he is saying in no uncertain terms to spend all you want in fancy warfighting gear, but don't elevate your actual warfighting beyond bush-wars.
So in a nutshell, a continued big yawn for India and Indians, other than watch the cheen substitute the pakis as the latest one to bugger Uncle Sam's image
