I have not quite decided if this article is a total hack piece or there is quite a story here..Maybe a little of both ?
The Indian diplomatic dustup in NYC was a foolish provocation that may haunt the Obama Administration for the rest of its term.
Not only was Narendra Modi the next prime minister of India denied a visa by the US Department of State in 2006, he also took a very strong position
during the recent violation of Indian diplomat Devyani Khobragade after her humiliating arrest in New York City back in December of 2013. As a means
of solidifying his candidacy, Modi went so far as to gin up his supporters’ anti-American sentiment. The national mood at the time was quite
unhappy with the US treatment of one of India’s daughters, so it didn’t take much for Modi to capitalize on the wave of anger that moved across
the entire nation.
No doubt some of our members will remember the female diplomat being arrested and discussed here at
Of further note there was a re-indictment of Ms. Khobragade on March 14, 2014, needless to say it pissed India off even more.
The Asia pivot, which has been referred to so often in the MSM of late, is nothing more than a show of military force and economic influence
in a region of the world that it ought not to be interfering in. Yankee gunboat diplomacy of the past is not acceptable and will no longer be
tolerated. Given the emerging calculus undergirding the new Asian economic unions and financial alliances, energy agreements and trade
configurations, major changes are now occurring that will profoundly affect American influence throughout the region, and beyond
I find it interesting when both sides of geopolitics ie two different viewpoints are discussed... I would think the loss of face when Narendra Modi
was denied a visa by the US Department of State in 2006 still stings a bit.. however I would bet his win will take much of the sting away as he finds
ways and methods to show his gratitude for the slight.
