American strategists have overestimated India for the last 20 years, IMO. India was central to USA plans in Afghanistan....result was a failure. India is was also central to USA plans to challenge China and Russia to provide vaccines for developing countries...looks like another failure. List can go on and on.
I think they want to keep India in dark. That's why I don't like sweet talking people.

COnsidering CHina is so incompetent that it unleashed a cataclysmic pandemic on the world, India is obviously the only country that can play a contributive role in the fight.
Ex US President Bill Clinton said in 1990s that India has a Rodney Dangerfield problem: It can’t get no respect, according to his deputy secretary of state Strobe Talbott. In a diplomatic cable released by WikiLeaks in 2010, Hillary Clinton referred to India as "a self-appointed frontrunner for a permanent UN security council seat."

If India is not self-appointed, who else is there? You? Surely even you aren't lame enough to thinkPak has to get a place in the Security COuncil?

The authors imagine the United Nations headquarters moves from New York to Mumbai after the war.
:rofl: LOL, to where? to the Mumbai slums?
India’s Covid crisis exposes its great power delusions | TRT World



India’s arrival as a global power is prematurely pronounced and is emblematic of a pattern replayed in recent years.
The scenes out of India these days are harrowing. Human beings lying on the pavement, begging for a bed in a hospital, or at the very least, some supply of oxygen. Space has run out not just for the dying, but also for the dead, as cremation and burial sites struggle to deal with the surge.

Last year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi declared India as the “pharmacy to the world.” And it was only a month or two ago that some in the international commentariat proclaimed India as an early victor in the vaccine diplomacy race. But India’s vaccine exports have since come to a halt. As its death toll soars, India is now seeking vaccine supplies from countries like the United States.

The Imagined India meets the Real India

India’s Covid-19 crisis is not just a nightmare of mass human suffering. It is also a massive systemic failure. Indeed, it is emblematic of a pattern replayed in recent years: India’s arrival as a global power is prematurely pronounced — often by Western voices eager to see New Delhi’s aspirations realised — and then this Imagined India is shown to be hollow when struck by the Real India.

When India conducted airstrikes in Pakistan in February 2019, it claimed that it hit “terror camps” and killed hundreds of terrorists. India’s assertions were readily accepted by South Asia watchers in the West, some of whom hailed it as establishing a new normal in the region with India supposedly developing the capability to conduct Israeli-style strikes in Pakistan at will.

But then India’s claims were rubbished by the international media, which made clear that the only casualties were “some pine trees” and “a crow.” And, later that month, Pakistan’s air force knocked down at least one Indian air force jet. Prominent US media outlets disproved claims by New Delhi — parroted by the Indian media — that it took down a Pakistani F-16.

Many within India and its boosters abroad continued to see its global rise as inevitable. But India’s great power delusions were dealt yet another blow last year when it was blindsided and hit hard in clashes with China in the Galwan Valley. India has not only faced setbacks in clashes with adversaries, but it has also lost influence to China in more friendly countries in the region: Bangladesh, Nepal, and Sri Lanka.

Indiscipline and punishment

The ongoing crisis in India has brought to fore its governance challenges and the extent to which it lags behind China on this critical element of national power.

To be clear, India is a vast country with significant regional disparities. States like Kerala have witnessed admirable gains in human development and public service delivery in the past generation. But, in contrast, places like Uttar Pradesh — India’s most populous state — remain stuck in another era, with characteristics of a failing state: crumbling public health and education systems, rampant corruption, and frequent mob violence. Continued Hindu nationalist rule at the center risks the Uttar Pradeshisation of India.
------------------


Modi’s disapproval rating shot up by eight points over April, but he remains a popular figure despite the suffering he’s brought to his people with his poor handling of the deadly second wave and his sudden announcements of demonetisation in 2016 and the first Covid lockdown in 2020.

Until recently, Modi’s charisma as a champion of a muscular Hindu identity made his reputation impervious to his government’s many policy failures. There now appear to be real dents in his armour. But there is little competition to Modi and the BJP at the centre. They will continue to rule India for the foreseeable future, but the country’s aspirations to serve as vishwaguru or “teacher to the world” will remain a fantasy.
Indian = Incompetence = Self delusion = Joke

They pumped up Modi to take away the “oxygen” out of the IOK! Now, COVID is doing the same to them....

In their terms it’s called Karma....
securing TSMC fabs would be a challenging task for PLA during the invasion
Any words of war on Taiwan may put the entire world into a major crisis due to the shortage of chips! And, the major Western companies with very high valued stocks will be mostly affected!! It may also cause a stock market crash and immediate depression! So, no administration can afford that....

Hence, the major US companies want the IC fabrication back to the USA, which is a very expensive and time taking job....

The truth is today China does not need to fire a single bullet to win this one with USA.

No matter what USA does China will not be drawn into any war with USA as USA is already set for self destruction. High inflation, unemployments, runaway bond market, etc are setting the stage for interest rate rise... Self destruction.

As for India
..
Not fo mentioned that It would be a miracle if India can survive this pandemic unscathed. Now that it has spread to the rural India as well. Furthermore there is an outbreak of black fungus epidermic as well.

So stop living in a delusional dream and get real.

Schadenfreude!

And not just to India

To United States (or disunited States) of Murica
Murica looks like Murica diving into Civil War or Bankruptcy.
Likely to be both simultaneously

India is so competent, it needed oxygen from china and pakistan. China at early stage of the pandemic didn't receive much of international help, everything was provided domestically, and yet china still managed astronomically better than india.
