Between the Devil and the Deep Sea

I have to say I am not a very politically oriented person, generally I rather read a book than watch Prannoy Roy speak to self confessed elections pundits about who will be the next head of State. However the US elections have got me hooked, I keep reading, watching and even listening to every bit of conversation surrounding it. Don’t get me wrong, I am not a US loyalist , I just want to see the next Neanderthal we have to put up with for the next 4 years.

I’m not mocking the men, but war seems to be a playground which they control. The President of the USA has god bestowed right to waltz into any country and claim it full of terrorists. They are helping the people, as per their schizophrenic outlook, however the little ones left without parents walking around in a pool of blood, just seems to be beyond their vision. They keep US security as their first priority, this priority seems to override world peace and decency. The politicians have exploited the middle east for their gain , when little nations decided to act up they were put out by these big guns. Granted , Osama and Saddam were sadists who destroyed people, but weren’t American Strategy for divide and conquer ,the prime reason they were so powerful

The American economy is built on trading of products – built, grown or assembled elsewhere at minimum costs. It is ironic though the economy of every other country is dependant on this parasitic economy, We are dependant on this country ,half the size of India right from foreign relations to oil prices. I thought that Americans woke up when the extent of the hate against them was displayed by the 9/11 incidents. Somehow they have forgotten the reason for the same, and just targeted the tool. I am not saying Americans are blind, just that their vision is totally obstructed by views propagated by their Presidents and their aides.Their movies still document India as being the place of Snake charmers and Maharajahs. They have to come out of their artificially created save heavens and look at the world. Because of outsourcing , their economy is actually booming,but to convince them of this will be next to impossible. Because all they see are brown turbaned people taking away their precious industries.


Back to the Presidents, these guys control the world’s nuclear future with a touch of a button and one of them has no clue as to the geographical location of the rest of the world past Texas. They keep saying that they will protect America, but how? Will they keep sending young men to fight the children and women who are the only survivors of the war torn Iraq and Afghanistan. The world quietly watches as a country nominates a leader to protect itself,against the rest of humanity ....



Ok, had to make the jokes abt Bush,So ladies and Gentlemen I present President Bush and

Good blog. Its so sad that world economy is mostly dependent on American economy. But the trend is changing now to an extent. After this out sourcing issues, Americans are thinking Indians as one of their threat and their Idea about Indians as Snake charmers are over now ( ex : Software Architect in Matrix Revolutions).
Hey, whats ur profession, u do ur blog like a Journo :-).

Hi Anu,
Good blog and good analysis too. But I think if spirited young generation like you take similar interest and analysis Indian politics too, India would be a much better economy.
You do not like politics and Indian politics at that, but anything American is interests you, even if it is politics..... Strange and sad.

Well, the fact is that right now America is the most powerful nation on earth and its politics is bound to generate interest. In fact, it is always the case that the dominating force is ever resented until there is an alternative force. Dont get me wrong. I am not trying to defend America. But this always is the case. First it was the Greeks and Romans - probably people in their time would have felt the same way. Then came the Mongols and the British. And now the British have been forgotten in favour of the US. Heck, people in India felt the same way about the Mughal rule, and probably in South America about the Spanish.

There is an alternative in the form of China, and I am sure that gradually China will start getting more and more publicity in the media, and we will hate their leaders even more.

It's in human nature. We resent domineering forces. We abhor somebody trying to show us the way. We hate power unless we are a direct beneficiary of it.

And pls don't get me wrong. I do believe Bush is as much of a dumbhead as the ten lines make him seem.

thank you..n my profession is far from journalistic

Hari,
Ur right but our economy is dependant on the US to a great extent, frankly any desicion if Bush wil directly affect my job, cant say the same about Laloo's decisions:))

Kpower,
Thanks for the history lesson..I agree, however this american culture has nothing good (which I can see) that we can imbibe, so this superpower is just bad for national health

Dumbs,

Sadly, many Indian Americans and many Indians too are thrilled with the election results. (Check the blogosphere.) Apparently India stands to gain from a Bush rule. While there is some truth in that statement, nobody seems to think about long term security. Anyways you know my thoughts on these, let me not get any further.

Hi Anu,

A very Happy Diwali to you and your family and welcome to Chennai. It seems that Chennai would be venue to a host of Star Bloggers like you around Diwali this time. I heard a few other bloggers are also coming to Chennai to enjoy the Diwali out here. It would be great if the stars arrange a get-together for the benefit of new entrants like me.

DEEPAK HERE (http://randomexpressions.rediffblogs.com)

Finally, this page opened...Firstly, a very happy though extremely belated Happy Birthday.

25 eh? i dont know why but it was a great feeling becoming 25...sort of a round figure and all that ( perhaps it was also coz in delhi, i finally became legal enough to drink, hic, he he ) . Its such a beautiful age...really...i miss being 25!


Oh, and u still think that US is portraying India as a land of snake charmers and maharajah. Perhaps, our indians shud first learn themselves to portray themselves well...if the likes of GURINDER CHADDHA still insist on showing India that way ( refer Bride and Prejudice ) then WHAT will the Americans learn???? ( I think this people like Chaddha shud be dealt with first , they are an insult to us......)
