Here’s something interesting. You can tell what the Republicans find TRULY important by what they hurry to get passed before the Dems take control in January.
Apparently, making sure that India has (better and more) nukes rates high on the Republican agenda. Many Dems too by the look of the vote.
My guess: Washington is finally waking up to the fact that China isn’t gonna play nice in the coming years and is trying to position India to become a viable regional competiter to the chinks.
The chink diesel sub that surfaced near a US aircraft carrier recently, probably had a lot to do with that.
What I want to know, is were they (our political leaders) ever really that naive? I mean comon, the chinks are smart, industrious and have a HUGE inferiority complex vis a vis the West. We have conveniently (for them) supplied them with an industrial base, free and open access to our universities and labs, allowed them to spy on us with impunity, and we have even had Presidents give them secret missle technology so that they could better target us.
Only now, have our idiot political leaders (on both sides) suddenly come to the realization that maybe the chinks aren’t just going to be content join the “family of nations,” and perhaps launch their own bid for domination.
Believe me, I have dealt with chinks a lot and I can tell you their arrogance and casual belief in their supremacy is exceeded only by their sense of grievance over what they see as the usurpation by the west of their rightful place as top dog in the world.
Not that this would bother me too much in and of itself. I like arrogant people, and In all fairness, the Japonese and the Koreans are just as bad in this regard, but the Chinese have a real capacity to challenge us, and they don’t mean us well. I hope this India deal means that our stupid politicians are starting to wake up to this fact.
