Obama has even promised to support India's demand for a permament seat on the U.N. Security Council, even though Pakistan and China are critical of this. "Pecunia non Olet"...money talks and lucrative markets for consumer goods awaits. The U.S.A. has traditionally seen Pakistan as an ally as India has always been reluctant to do America's bidding and has pursued a non.aligned policy since the days of Prime Minister Nehru.
Obama has spent 3 days wooing and dancing his way to a very receptive and accepting India. The people are won over, business is eager and the politician are happy with his message, even about Pakistan. Now he is on his way to visit Indonesia, where he spent 4 years as a child. Back home, the bickering continues and the race is on for 2012. They await his return, ready to nit-pick and he has to come refreshed, re-energised and girded for battle.
