Well I think we are not talking sense, Brahmas is not a weapon that will be ever used against America or Russia, both nations with whom India has
"the" most excellent relations.
India has been the victim of China's aggression when it just became independent and even today faces provocative Chinese threats.
India has also been a victim and has fought three wars with Pakistan who like China has laid claims to Indian terriority !
India has been perhaps the only country that has to face "State sponsored terrorism" for over 20 years !
It took an incidence like the 9 / 11 to awaken the Americans and the Europeans and jolt them to accept that a close ally [Pakistan "was indeed the
epicenter of terrorism in the World?
India has also accepted the fact that when threatened it has to act alone and not count on fair weather democratic friends to defend itself.
It is this context we need to see India's push to get its Army fit enough to face and squash the terrorist’s. Can USA and its allies afford to be
pretensive and hold moral ground in fighting terror specific to its interest or join Democratic nations in flushing out terror all over the world?
Unfortunately USA has a long history in cosing up to Military dictatorship and had very uneasy relations with democracies all over the world?
