yawn! western leaders would sell their mothers if their corporate masters tell them to.
modi - now, i do not know if he was complicit in the violence -- should refuse to engage with western leaders if he has an er.. modicum of sense. let them grovel some more. their corporate masters will have them by their &@!!s if they fail to get him on board.
Exactly what Outlook is doing in this issue, right?
Also note, the conservatives are in power. So, a more pragmatic approach is expected unlike in the case of Mr.Blair.
let me join Maha;
A big yawn !!
Anyone who believes international relations are governed by morality is living in a dreamworld. It may be cynical, but it is a fact. The US had no problems with Saddam Hussein gassing his own people as long as he was battling the Iranians. The moment he ceased to be of any use to him, they attcked Iraq and deposed him on the patently false charges of amassing WMD.
When an anti-Modi stance appeared the line to take to gain brownie points with people the US and EU was trying to please. Now that the befits of the earlier policy have dwindled, these govts are changing track so as not to be deprived of what they percieve to be their share of the spoils. If any further proof is required, then look at the continued and unbroken engagement by the world's "democracies" with various military regimes.
In international relations there are no permanent friends or permanent enemies, only permanent interests. Lord Palmerston's words are as relevant today as when he made them nearly 200 years ago.
Mr Panay Sharma....its sour grapes for you perhaps! who the hell decides if Modi had a hand in the riots or not except the courts!! the article smacks one sided view
