Funny Power Politics
Understanding power politics is really funny when ideals contradict. The USA is the so-called liberal, secular, democratic country that champions human rights. I don’t know how Indian leadership of RSS-driven hardcore mentality will take human rights questions?
The USA can’t stress Israel on human rights violations. What will the USA say to India on the longest curfew in Kashmir? The USA needs sympathy for Uighurs ‘ human rights issues to contain China. Destructions of the so-called war on terror in Afghanistan and Iraq are not under human rights violations in the US dictionary.
Both partners have their own interests with each other. India is not willing to play an active part in its Chinese side border or to the South Pacific Sea. What can India do for Taiwan? And which type of help the USA sent to India when China grabbed Indian claimed lands? All these questions required deep analysis.
