Ramanna... "A Solomon come to judgement"!
That was perhaps the most concise summing up of the deal and the course for India to take protecting its interests best.
I ask a Q from our pro-Yanqui friends.Why does the US conduct "Arabian Shark" naval exercises with Pak in the Arabian Sea?
Why has India always been left out of its CENTCOM plans ,forced to exercise with the US's Pacific fleet only in the IOR despite us wanting to exercise with its CENTCOM asets ? I posted earlier in another thread US evdience that India is being deliberately left out so as not to upset Pak!
Is the US teaching Pak anti-ship and ASW exercises and selling it F-16 Falcons to fight the Taliban's "air farce" (probably a few "falcons" of the feathered kind) and when the Taliban posses not even a single bumboat,perhaps a few goatskins for crossing frontier rivers?
It is eminently clear to all that the US is arming Pak with anti-ship Harpoon missiles,P-3 Orions,F-16s,TOW anti-tank missiles,Cobra gunships,etc.,no to fight the Taliban but to be used against India.As well as a turning a blind eye to Pak's nuclear proliferation and increasing nuclear ambitions,its new warhead and missile plants,even though it has such a close military relationship with China.The US is using Pak in the same way that China does with it,to wage a proxy war to counter India,because India is a democracy and a miliitarily weak India under Nehru after Independence was able to exert such tremendous influence upon smaller nations across Africa,Asia and elesewhere to remain neutral and independent without even possessing N-weapons.Imagine what India could do today in international affairs if only we had a dynamic PM and FM who could use India's strengths,like China is doing,to project India nd its interests abroad.It would replace the US as the world's moral conscience and seriously defeat US plans for global dominance through military means.
So as Ramanna has sagaciously observed,buying Yanqui birds will allow their embedded systems to warn the US and thus Pak of the wherabouts and intentions of the IAF.This acquisition is the first wedge in the door,the next will be linking the entire IAF into the US's battleplans by acquiring Link-X communications systems.The takeover of the Indian armed forces is what the US plans and buying a US aircraft would be the equivalent of letting the "Trojan Horse" in by the front door.Do we want to emulate Troy?

Barack Obama adviser rejects 'global war on terror'
President Barack Obama's top counter-terrorism adviser has rejected the notion of a "global war on terror" arguing that it led to an obsessive focus on a tactic and suggested America was at war with the world.
Unless Obama dramatically calls Pak to book and forces it to stop its anti-India campaign of terror and counterfeit currency smuggling,why should India reward a so-called friend that is actually helping our mortal enemy destroy us?
