india has an equal right as has any one else, to speak its mind. the UN
allows that. i don't agree with what u are saying: that 'might is
right.' we not only have the choice, but the obligation to speak out
against injustice.

problem here is more to do with WHAT india allies with: we need to align
with the good and democracy loving, human life-respecing regimes. not
with murderers. i believe that, at least in this case, we have sided
with those who are wrong.
