President Obama and Nuclear Power for India

 Fall photo I shot in Idaho
Dear Readers,
 
I found it strange when I read the below news article regarding US awarding assistance to India for the development of nuclear power, when our president wants America disarmed. It is odd that we are siding with India in such a manner.
“Obama’s plan reflects the idea that the dangers posed by the spread of nuclear arms can be curbed only if the United States leads in bolstering the global non-proliferation system.”
The entire world needs prayer regarding each new day. 
In Jesus Christ who will usher in true peace one day,
Val Lee (1 John 5:10-13—the Bible)   paradise

“… Pakistan has felt uncomfortable that India is receiving US assistance in the development of nuclear power industry even though India has refused to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Obama’s assertion that ‘Indian leadership is expanding security across the region’ will find no supporters in Islamabad or Beijing.

The acrimonious relationship between Pakistan and India over several disputes and India’s blatant role in dismembering Pakistan in 1971 has been exacerbated due to India’s refusal to engage in a meaningful dialogue with Pakistan.

As an old American ally, Pakistan’s concern over the increasing US ‘tilt’ towards India, was quite natural. Pakistan’s own relationship with the US has kept swinging from being the ‘most allied ally’ to being the ‘most neglected ally’ and then to being the ‘most sanctioned ally,’ depending upon how much the US needed Pakistan’s services at a given time. Pakistan fears more belligerency from India in view of American support despite Pakistan’s sensitivities.

The announcement by President Obama that his administration would begin to pull out its troops from Afghanistan after 18 months has given rise to apprehensions in Pakistan that he may install India as a proxy power to protect US interests.

Motivated by its sinister designs to weaken Pakistan, India is actively promoting an East Pakistan style insurgency in Balochistan. Once its military gains a foothold in Afghanistan it will squeeze Pakistan from the western border, while using rogue elements from the tribal belt, which it has already recruited, to destabilise Pakistan. Ample evidence of these activities was handed over to Indian prime minister by his Pakistani counterpart.

The US-Indian belief that India can hold the fort for the US in Afghanistan is a fallacy. The Afghans being fiercely opposed to foreign occupiers, it would be naïve to expect that Indian forces would be welcome to stay after the Americans withdraw. Notwithstanding the support of the Northern Alliance and Karzai’s weak government, The Taliban, who are bound to gain political influence in Kabul sooner or later, will reject Indian military presence on their soil, as it will represent American interests …”
