Let's hope the Indian people will block this demeaning role for India - a role that the Indian ruling elite is hell-bent on creating: http://www.fpif.org/fpiftxt/157 Quote: ----------------------------------------------------------------- The United States has long eyed India? substantial military manpower. Washington wants to appropriate Indian troops as foot-soldiers in its global operations?uch in the manner the British-Indian army was exploited to expand the Empire into the Middle East and Afghanistan. . . . The ?ew Framework?isn? going down well with the Indian public. The Left parties, whose support is vital for Singh, strongly oppose it. A subordinate patron-client relationship with the United States, which is in search of a global Empire, will be resented by many Indians, who are proud of their country? history of independence in foreign policy making and autonomy in international affairs. Singh is embarking on a gamble. It is unlikely that he will be able to sell the ?ew compact?easily to the domestic public.
