India blows up a monsoon

Post by yunowu on Fri Jul 04, 2008 4:17 pm

Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has made a very calculated political - and potentially dangerous - move to seal the much-delayed civilian nuclear accord with the United States. The deal, though, is only one piece on the chessboard of India's global ambitions that includes the key players of Pakistan, Iran and the United States. But it's the weather that could decide Manmohan's and the chess game's fate. - M K Bhadrakumar (Jul 3, '08)

Desperate Delhi wheels and deals

Post by yunowu on Fri Jul 04, 2008 4:27 pm

The Indian coalition government has made friends with former foes in a final bid to move ahead with a civilian nuclear deal with the United States. The high-risk move could end in early general elections, and might already be too late. - Sudha Ramachandran (Jun 30, '08)

Incredible India, indeed

Post by yunowu on Fri Jul 04, 2008 4:28 pm

While its neighbors blissfully ignore bigger economic trends, India's policymakers have made a series of poor strategic choices for the country, in effect pushing the economy into the eye of the global storm. As the government grapples with inflation and contends with a fractious coalition, the outlook is murky. (Jun 30, '08)

Now it's war against India in Afghanistan

Post by yunowu on Tue Jul 08, 2008 10:16 pm

The Taliban and Pakistan have denied responsibility for the devastating suicide attack on the Indian Embassy in the Afghan capital Kabul on Monday. Delhi doesn't believe a word of it. The Taliban have frequently targeted projects sponsored and constructed by India in Afghanistan, fearing India's growing influence at the expense of Pakistan. Delhi is being urged to send troops into Afghanistan. This might add to India's stature, but it would be a disaster. - Sudha Ramachandran (Jul 8, '08)

Delhi carries a small stick

Post by yunowu on Tue Jul 08, 2008 10:18 pm

India talks a good game, but it could play a much more proactive role in regional and international security, if not for the greater good, then for its own motives to stabilize its periphery and gain access to the natural resources and markets on its doorstep. The attack on the Indian Embassy in Kabul could be the spur Delhi needs. - Chietigj Bajpaee (Jul 8, '08)
