Priyo,

I could not have agreed more with you that we Indians are masters at
intellectual hypocrisy. We perpetually want to have our cake and eat it
too. Think of all the allies we tried to acquire over the past fifty
years.
We the largest democracy, were the closest ally of Soviet Union, Cuba,
and
the rest of the gang.

As for America, post Sept 11, some of my friends have told me that
following the few incidents of attacks on Muslim, Sikhs and others in
the
aftermath of the terrorist attacks, many of their American friends are
going out of their way to express their solidarity with the various
ethnic
groups in the US in an attempt to make them feel comfortable.

Perhaps members of this elist are aware of the recent ship loads of
people
from the various Islamic republics of Iran, Afghanistan and Iraq, who
have
been risking their life to escape to Australia, a western country. In
the
latest tragedy, 350 hopeful migrants, all from Islamic countries,
drowned
in the ocean off Indonesia, as their ship capsized.

People, including muslims, are "voting" with their feet, for freedom and

dignity.

Just as during cold war, the iron curtain was raised not so much to
prevent
an attack from the NATO, but to try and stop their own people who
refused
to accept the socialist tyranny, from escaping to the NATO countries.
So much for the NATO vs the rest.

Regards,
Barun
