Bush’s Indian Ally

NEW DELHI -- At a time when even friendly governments are quick to distance themselves from the United States and its pugnacious, embattled president, India is a strategic maverick. The former firebrand of the Non-Aligned Movement has chosen this moment to forge a close partnership with Washington and to speak up positively about American power in world affairs.

"This lack of nuclear cooperation is the last remaining cobweb from our old relationship, and we can now sweep it aside," Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said with an expressive wave of his hand. "There are no other barriers to a more productive, more durable relationship with the United States. The potential is enormous for our two nations."

India is the new China in the eyes of the Bush administration, which has promised to help this once-slumbering Asian giant develop into one of the world’s five or six major economic and political powers. That undertaking has instilled a new sense of security in the Indian capital and erased long-standing tensions.

I am so grateful that large numbers of Indians are Hindu... rather than you know what.

We'll hold the West... UK can do W Europe... still looking for a E European superpower (Poland?)... Japan keeps an eye on their area of asia, the Aussies in their region... India is up for China's position.

India is our firm ally if only in the war on Terror. Christians face second class status under Sharia. Hindus face only death.

Sadly a large number of them are communists. India is a dhimmi nation that voted against Israel and with Islamic nations for a long time. That only changed with the coming to power of a hindu nationalist government.
