US ambassador to India resigns amid strained ties between nations


NEW DELHI – The American ambassador to India said she has resigned and will retire before the end of May, ending a two-year tenure after the strip-search of an Indian diplomat in New York City badly damaged U.S.-India ties.

In a posting on the U.S. Embassy website Monday, Ambassador Nancy Powell gave no reason for her decision but said she had planned it for some time.

The resignation comes at an awkward time, with India's national elections just one week away. It also comes as the two countries are still trying to mend ties following the diplomatic spat over the arrest of diplomat Devyani Khobragade in New York.

In Washington, State Department Deputy Spokeswoman Marie Harf denied Powell's decision had anything to do with tensions between the two countries.

Is it just me or are there more and more people linked to this administration that are leaving / jumping ship? Even Jay Carney is talking about leaving his job as White House Press Secretary. Holder is on his way out the door. Over 200 generals / flag officers have been fired / forced to resign.

It's like watching people rearranging deck chairs on the titanic...

I think when the energy deal goes down with Russia and the BRICS start trading with each other the USD will fail and fail hard .So the new replacement if there is going to be one will be fresh and not so stressed .The US then can start to listen to other peoples instead of talking at them ....peace

BRICS currently only has 5 members and all 5 are a part of the G-20.

As for India and Russia its based on immediate needs and not long term ones. India has been historically independent / neutral / unaligned over the years. I am actually glad to see them doing more outside their borders.

At the end of the day though their concerns are with Pakistan and China. At some point the issue will be pressed by either India or China for Russia to stop supplying the other.

Yeah I think the BRIC have quite a number of very big problems

Namely China/India relations and disputed boarders land/sea

Pakistan and China's friendship with them,

Brazils economy going to pot which just leaves Russia China or Russia India

And soon I'm not so sure china and India will be doing very well either after the Crimea incident

The IR or the RC is in places not sure the rest is

And the BRICS will fail immediately after

The only reason china would require such energy would be to keep up with western demand and the same goes for India

You can't have one without the other

It would be the equivalent of a clown on a unicycle undoing the bolt on his only wheel lol it's getting quite comical how people can't seem to grasp this fact

It's will only result in a one world currency that Russia and friends isn't a part of, it would be so much more harder to ask individual countries to drop it in favour of a new currency it could only happen through collapse I guess

Peace

Well you may call it the BRICS and say it's only a few and they wont last pieces like "
NSA spied on 122 World Leaders
Sunday, 30 March 2014
If someone knows how to make friends, it's certainly the US.

Secret documents newly disclosed by the German newspaper Der Spiegel on Saturday shed more light on how aggressively the National Security Agency and its British counterpart have targeted Germany for surveillance.

A series of classified files from the archive provided to reporters by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, also seen by The Intercept, reveal that the NSA appears to have included Merkel in a surveillance database alongside more than 100 others foreign leaders. The documents also confirm for the first time that, in March 2013, the NSA obtained a top-secret court order against Germany as part of U.S. government efforts to monitor communications related to the country. Meanwhile, the British spy agency Government Communications Headquarters targeted three German companies in a clandestine operation that involved infiltrating the companies’ computer servers and eavesdropping on the communications of their staff." macedoniaonline.eu... and "MOSCOW — Moving quickly to envelop Crimea in the Russian bureaucracy and economy, the Kremlin said Monday that it had nearly doubled pensions paid to retirees on the peninsula, raising them to the average levels paid in Russia." www.nytimes.com...

and "As the Ukrainian crisis has unfolded over the past few weeks, it’s hard for Americans not to see Vladimir Putin as the big villain. But the history of the region is a history of competing villains vying against one another; and one school of villains—the Nazis—have a long history of engagement with the US, mostly below the radar, but occasionally exposed, as they were by Russ Bellant in his book Old Nazis, The New Right And The Republican Party (South End Press, 1991). Bellant’s exposure of Nazi leaders from German allies in the 1988 Bush presidential campaign was the driving force in the announced resignation of nine individuals, two of them from the Ukraine, which is why he was the logical choice to turn to illuminate the scattered mentions of Nazi and fascist elements amongst the Ukrainian nationalists, which somehow never seems to warrant further comment or explanation. Of course most Ukranians aren’t Nazis or fascists—all the more reason to illuminate those who would hide their true natures in the shadows…or even behind the momentary glare of the spotlight." fpif.org...

and "Former American President Jimmy Carter has warned the US Secretary of State John Kerry of violating international law in his potential peace framework agreement between the Palestinians and the Israeli occupation." www.middleeastmonitor.com... and on and on , after awhile some of those enemy's may just gang up and say enough is enough if they dont want to be picked off one by one ...It's the US that has a very short history and it has been a brutal one to the rest of the globe and is becoming a place that more and more people are turning away from unless you are a Mexican or a fleeing past dictator .
