  • 10 years of war, and for what?
    Why don't we bring our troops home, and fix our own problems?

  • USA (4% of global population) trying to dictate trade for China and India (42% of global population) is just laughable. The USA should look at fixing it's own broken economy rather than trying to piss more people off.

  • There goes the US again. Losing hearts and minds all over the world.

    You have to admit the US is pretty consistent. Asides from its puppetmaster Israel and its catomite the UK, the US has pissed off every country in the world in some way.

    • @DEADBEEF Because of your comment, I was forced to add a couple of words to my vocabulary. MW: Catamite: a boy kept by a pederast. Thanks. I think. ;-]

      Sorry if I got the spelling wrong. It's not a term I use often. :-)

      My understanding of a Catamite is that they are a Sodomite's minion.

      It matches up pretty well with the Wikipedia definition.

  • Sanctions are like bombings of cities in WW2. They are completely useless and only make the people suffer, since the guys who should be detrimentally affected by them, just sell and get their stuff through other sources or other ways - for example by giving the people less and taking more for themselves.

    In other words: FUCK OFF USA AND EU WITH YOUR POPULIST BULLSHIT!
    They are only doing it to drive oil prices even higher anyway.

      What part of "International Sanctions" doesn't India, or China, or Russia understand. You do business with them then you don't do business with others.
      India needs to realize it's downwind of Iran, Pakistan and China are too. if iran tosses a bomb, even one, at Israel then England, France, and the the United States will turn them to glass. They know that, but aren't rational. they think that if they can provoke the deaths of 3/4 of the world's population a 12 year old murder More..

      What part of Security Council VEto you don;t understand. We are quick to jump to Libya, yet we ignore all the f-king civil wars causing more harm to civilians and have lasted a lot longer. Think about it. Ppl have smartened up and already see the US and other nations restricting the internet as a way to silence the oppostion and strengthen their position. It doesn;t matter. When that happens, other "rogue" states wil create ingenious methods to counter such methods.

  • Damn, lets not piss India off. Get them riled up over there and we will lose every call center for every United States corporation. You think hold times are bad now for those computer help desks, we could wind up listening to hold music for weeks if American companies lose their Indian call centers.

    And if this got out of hand, I could see every inner city convenience store closing up when it's owners side with their mother land.

      The dramatic tone aimed at stirring emotions used by the first reporter. The fact that she says that over the "past couple of weeks many US officials have said that this was a slap in the face to them" and that they were very angry. So basically more than one official have said the same thing that she quoted, repetitively over the "past couple of weeks"? For fucks sake can you be anymore vague and less accurate about what you are reporting. And also who is she t More..

  • the US and India nearly came to blows in mid 70s(dont really know exact reason, but it was one of America's main reason to pick pakistan as a buffer/bitch, and automatically Soviet Union sided with India. it works well for Soviets because now China has two major headaches instead of Soviets alone. in America, folks talk about call centers and cheap software labor from India, but there is more to it than meets the eye. fyi, NASA named one of their most sophisticated satellites on an Indian scient More..

      India and America are not going to war. In fact, the reason why America sided with Pakistan was because the Pakis were in a position to present an opportunity for the US to engage China, which till that time had no relations with the US. As a result, India had no choice but to side with Russia. Your time table is off by 2 decades, circa 1950's This is RT new, which is sort of like the Russian version of Fox news. Of course, there is pressure to get Indian to drop Iran but it More..
