Funniest thread ever. All this talk about these people teaming up with these people, etc. lol

None of the Supes, former supes, or potential supes - US, Russia, China, India - will be fighting each other anytime soon. It's just not going to happen. Not one of these countries can afford a major war like that right now.

If India has pacts and agreements with the US and Russia....who cares!!? Good for them.

The defense ministers of the United States and India signed a 10-year agreement Tuesday paving the way for stepped up military ties, including joint weapons production and cooperation on missile defense.

Titled the "New Framework for the US-India Defense Relationship" (NFDR) and signed on Monday by Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and Defense Minister Pranab Mukherjee, the agreement is vastly more expansive that the Next Steps in Strategic Partnership (NSSP) and builds on the January 1995 Agreed Minute on Defense Relations between the two countries.

Under the NFDR, Washington offered to step up a strategic dialogue with India to boost missile defense and other security initiatives as well as high-tech cooperation, expanded economic and energy cooperation, a "defense procurement and production group," and deals to cooperate on military "research, development, testing and evaluation."

The agreement also envisages joint and combined exercises and exchanges between both sides, naval pilot training, and even increased cooperation in the areas of worldwide peacekeeping operations and expansion of interaction with other nations "in ways that promote regional and global peace and stability."




“The US appears to be placing a bigger bet on India,” said Alan Kronstadt of the non-partisan Congressional Research Service. “Among many analysts, India and Pakistan are no longer perceived as equals in Washington. Pakistan is viewed as a middle power and India has the much greater potential down the road. You won't hear ‘strategic partner' being used much with Pakistan but you will hear it with India.”

Allaying apprehensions that the Indo-US framework agreement on defence cooperation will fuel arms race, Defence Minister Pranab Mukherjee, on Monday said it would help India in getting technology transfer and also ensure that there was no sudden disruption in supplies during period of hostilities. "The agreement was not aimed at joining any arms race," Mukherjee said adding "we are not interested in procuring arms."

The agreement would help India in getting technology transfer and also to ensure that there was no sudden disruption in supplies during period of hostilities because the reliability of the US as a supplier is poor, the Minister said at the annual general meeting of Indian Paint Association (IPA) here.
