Not sure if this was posted as I searched but couldn't find it. This has been in the spotlight for a while due to the focus towards SE Asia from the Western Nations. It would be very interesting since US depends on India's support in the region not just to counter the Chinese concern but also for a successful Afghanistan exit strategy.

Yet the matured and ones with the wisdom still make
Im young and not a expert on foreign stuff.
Even the international community knows this. However being the only islamic nation with nukes, they have to play it safe by throwing a bone (financial aid) to them.
Let China help them,,they'd throw a little chump to them, but they would have to buy there products,keep them un-employed.(The chump they get ,would not go to the people ,but corrupted for there goverment officials)
Pakistan is NOT OUR FRIEND,its all blackmail/bribes with them. They'd sell us out in a NY minute!
Agree. There is a shortage of male population and with the total declined down to 150 Million or so, it is a possibility unless the russian government promotes a massive breeding program
Russia,there country will be half empty in 50 years.
Economy is pure garbage,corruption there is 10 fold of Mexico.
India has problems to BIG TIME,,but far more promise than Russia.
And way better than Pakistan.
I am not sure about everyone but definitely the Russian mafia has a big hand in the underground economy on and off the Internet.
Russia has not done didly for there economy in 20 years,yes they have rockets and great scientist,but there economy has say in the stone age. Sure some are the WWW,sick sex criminals and virus's come from there, or Russian brides where you dont live happily ever after.(Oh yes,we have sick pervs to,but they dont make websites)
Agree. Many member countries are broke and are sending their not so 'cream of the crop' delegates to represent at the UN.
The UN lost its balls some time ago,,The UN should just be for food aid and disaster help,medicine,etc.
But for war its quite useless.
The goal is for more strategic partnership not just economical one.
As a partner? Is anyone a partner over there or just business partners?
Its about costs and promotion and chance of growth for the domestic Defense sector. This is their biggest priority as this was not possible with the West.
The real concern for the US with India is 1) its rate of economic expansion-viewed as a threat by an interospective US and other Western powers 2) India's alignment with Russia as a co partner on the G5 and G6 Generation of Fighter jets (PAK FA/ 50) Which is set their version of a Future Raptor which will put them at a technology and weapons advantage-tactically at least.
