Has India Lost its Marbles with USA?
Posted on April 14th, 2013

Prof. Hudson McLean

John Kerry the new American Secretary of State, has moved sharp towards kissing the hands of the new Chinese leadership with speed, to help neuter Kim Jong-un, the boy-wonder of North Korea.

Parallel to that, Kerry has also made positive remarks towards Sri Lanka, a good friend of China.

Russia, in a surprising move has publicly endorsed the American stand-point against North Korea, and confirmed its in closeness socio-political-economical with China.

Its no secret that, China, by default, almost owns USA economically, and USA needs to play its cards with respect with the Chinese Banker.

This brings to the question of the global positioning of India as a leader of significance.

Although India has turned itself from a Colonial slave into a economical power-house, the old British bureaucratic septic mess in India has got only worse.

I fail to understand that, Indians with all the finesse in IT, still fail to read & write emails or answer their telephones. When it comes to communications, India is still in the stone-age, perhaps using carrier-pigeons or crows.

The rampant bribery & corruption:India’s image on tackling corruption has not improved with Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index (CPI) placing it at 94th rank out of 176 nations this year.

Where as Sri Lanka Placed 79th in Global Corruption Perception Index. (Is not much better either)

Which brings to the main point, with USA holding hands with China, and Russia getting in-between-the-sheets with both USA & China, and Sri Lanka receiving  compliments from Kerry, “Is India getting the Winds of Change?”.

GOSL under the leadership of President Mahinda Rajapaksa has made no secret that India cannot be trusted.
Gotabhaya Rajapaksa has made his opinions publicly, against Tamil Nadu trying to play “King Kong” in India, over-riding the Congress decisions.

The current leadership under  Manmohan Singh with Sonia Gandhi playing the “back-seat” driver, keeping the columns warm till the young Rahul Gandhi, a Member of Parliament and the Vice President of the Indian National Congress until he has the safety & security to lead the Party.

Also Sonia tried her best to win the favours of the Tamil Nadu LTTE by offering a “pardon” to the killer of her husband Rajiv. Time will tell how the Tamil Nadu reacts to such generosity.

USA, has made many miscalculations and mis-judgments in their time, by screaming “Mission Accomplished”, but John Kerry the current Secretary of State is a war-veteran, a soldier, who might be a better judge than Mrs Hilly-Billy Clinton.

Lets hope that Kerry keeps Indian ambitions in check!

    Always nice to read Prof. Hudson McLean.

    Endia is in the wilderness without any REAL friends (only enemies).

    Although Kim is an idiot he managed to FORCE USA to bow down to China (after earning billions in weapons exports to Japan and South Korea)!!!

  2. S.Gonsalkorale Says:

    Yes. This explains new Aus-China direct trade and new relationship.
    MR should jump in the right direction right NOW, without being late.

    “STOP THE BOATS” mantra can bring us closer to Aus, USA, China.

    Talk to Aus, USA , China now and at the same time kick the Endian made 13A crap out of our soil

  3. Voice123 Says:

    The current US regime of Obama and Clinton are clearly making use of Indian suckers who dont even realize it. The reality is that not only do the Chinese own a large slice of America, Chinese-Americans are more trusted by the average American than Indians who are often skeptically viewed as two timing opportunists offering shonky quality and are potential rapists.

  4. PRIYAN WIJEYERATNE Says:

    I just read adaderana new, US has reduced SL aid by 20% saying SL army is interfering with work in the North. Are they only giving aid to develop the North? Then we do not want any, they can keep it and feed their hungry blacks.

  5. Lorenzo Says:

    “WASHINGTON: US secretary of state John Kerry has proposed a 16% cut in the American aid to India, reflecting the transition from a traditional “donor-recipient” relationship to a “strategic partnership” between the two countries.

    “With respect to India, for the fiscal year 2014, the State Department request is $91 million. This represents a 16% decrease from the fiscal levels 2012 (the previous actual spending),” a senior state department official told PTI.

    This is in continuation of the trend that has emerged over the past few years. ”

    -timesofindia

    This aid cut has nothing to do with the recipient.

    USA has NO MONEY to give!!! Hooooo!

    The truth about that China/US Debt :

    “China and U.S. Debt

    The largest portion of U.S. debt, 68 cents for every dollar or about $10 trillion, is owned by individual investors, corporations, state and local governments and, yes, even foreign governments such as China that hold Treasury bills, notes and bonds.

    Foreign governments hold about 46 percent of all U.S. debt held by the public, more than $4.5 trillion. The largest foreign holder of U.S. debt is China, which owns more about $1.2 trillion in bills, notes and bonds, according to the Treasury.

    In total, China owns about 8 percent of publicly held U.S. debt. Of all the holders of U.S. debt China is the third-largest, behind only the Social Security Trust Fund’s holdings of nearly $3 trillion and the Federal Reserve’s nearly $2 trillion holdings in Treasury investments, purchased as part of its quantitative easing program to boost the economy”.

  7. Fran Diaz Says:

    P.S.: Printing of money is no longer tied to the Gold Standard.

  8. Sunil Mahattaya Says:

    If Kerry has proposed a 20% aid cut to Sri lanka by classifying SL as a mid range nation with resources combined with the lame excuses of Military interference towards accountability of previously delivered funds to the North they all seem to be excuses instigated by the LTTE supportive Tamil Diaspora but he will be spluttering if China provides compensation for the Aid cut with an aid package of her own.Kerry seems no better than his predecessor Clinton who for a time toed the line of the Diaspora demands based on lies and innuendo yet carried on in an authoritatieve manner about Sri lankan affairs which neither of them seem to have had much knowledge of for accuracy and prefered to go on hearsay.

    BREAKING NEWS

    Terrorist attack on USA – Boston.

    3 bomb explosions.

    2 dead 22 injured.

  10. Voice123 Says:

    A few small explosions and Americans go into tailspin, with their media demonizing all Muslims and colored folk! Pathetic. Imagine if they went through what Sri Lanka was made to go through for 30 years.

  11. Lorenzo Says:

    Tamil terrorists bomb Boston marathon killing people.

    They did it before EXACTLY 5 years ago at a New Year marathon that killed Jeyaraj Fernandopulle!!

    If done by another group they SURELY learnt it from Tamils.

  12. Voice123 Says:

    Tamils are the worlds leaders in suicide technology.
