The potential alliance of three nuclear-armed countries of some 2.5 billion people, Russia, China and India, theoretically would be able to balance US power in coming years.

"Russia will continue interaction with its partners in [the] Moscow-Beijing-New Delhi triangle," Foreign Minister Igor Ivanov stated at an Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) meeting last month. "This interaction is important for the international stability in general," he was quoted by the official Russian Information Agency (RIA) as saying on June 18. "The dialogue between Moscow, Beijing and New Delhi will continue," said Ivanov, adding that the three nations have shared interest in "multipolar and just world".

The forming of this Axis has naturally sent alarm bells ringing in the US and other Western countries. The moot question is whether this would ultimately morph into a politico-military alliance or in other words a political and military counterweight to the US.

I daresay that this would result in global stability as it would nutralise the neo-con grand agenda of world domination by a so called New World Order with the US calling the shots, as well as the stated policy of pre emptive action on countries not falling in line with US policies.

I generally think this is why the Bush administration bent over backwards to coax India into the Western fold with all it's nuclear support and incentives.

I trust India enough to expect it to have a good influence on China and Russia. India is the World's largest democracy with a very intelligent population. It's political climate is better than we have in any Western democracy. Also India is the largest contributer of troops to UN peace keeping missions.
