I respect my own country's position. And US did not woke up to see the
reality on Sept. 11. US knew about the reality right from begining.
That's why US supported Israel right from the begining. And that's why
US fought Gulf war protecting Kuwait from Iraq. It was the 8 year rule
of Bill Clinton and continous rhetoric about poverty and how US foriegn
policy is causing trouble in Muslim region that caused the problem. You
must have heard the reports that during Bill Clinton's 8 years
presidency US came close to capturing Osama Bin Laden. However, Clinton
did nothing. He is same person who kissed Yasser Arafat. And he is the
same person who went to China and spoke from the Tienanmen Square. It
is the socialist nonsense that Capitalism is causing poverty and
poverty is root cause of terrorism that screwed America. Had a
Republican president been in power like George Bush this nonsense would
never have occurred.

This is not true. Americans were not arrogant about India's struggle in
the region. It was India's support of the Russia that caused the
problem. How do you expect Americans to react when they know it was
Russia that supported Arab countries like Syria, Jordan and Egypt
attacking Israel while India continue to pursue the policy of
non-alignment. Non-alignment with what? Neutrality to what? Neutrality
to crime and butchering of innocent civilians? Nonsense! I think
socialism in India is not just an economic failure but much more than.
We have unknowingly contributed to expansion of Communism in the World
because of our association with Russia, and North Korea. We need to
realize is that just because India itself is poor does not mean we can
ignore what our Communist friends did to other people in the World. 

Had we supported US instead of Russia we would have got equally warm
response from US. Just look at Israel. Even after US has been attacked
on Sept. 11 support for Israel has increased not decreased. I know
American people and I know India. I know a lot of people in India are
still obsessed with colonialism and socialism. Get out that mindset. US
is not going to attack India nor US multinational corporation going to
come and loot our wealth. Relax a little bit.

US needed to reward Pakistan for their participation in Cold War with
US. They can't abandon them. But with Sept. 11 attacks US has the
opportunity to be more friendly with India. Pakistan is completly
exposed and people in US feel that they no longer owe anything to
Pakistan. So this is a golden opportunity to side with US. 

Forget about what happened in the Past. We have made our share of
mistakes. We need to declare our unequivocal support of US position
against Iraq, Iran and North Korea. And we need to trade more with US.
Actually, Americans must be wondering how come India with its rich
tradition, secular democracy and free press wound up in the Russian
camp. 

I am glad the Vajpayee and Advani both understand this and are getting
involved with US much more openly. That is good sign. Just imagine what
the two great democracies can accomplish together. I am very
optimistic. We, the Indian people, need to do our part in not making
irresponsible statement against US. It is okay to critisize US foriegn
policy but you have to keep in mind the context. Stop making stupid
comments on US saying that it is racist, they hate us, they are selfish
and what else! And we need to stop supporting stupid socialist
Europeans trying to constrain US under the name of Kyoto protocol or
IBM Treaty or opposing building Missile Shield by US. And expect
handsome reward of not only weapons to protect us against China and
others but also lot of cooperation in trade and environmental areas.
