MEMO TO MOONBATS...:

The Emperor's Visit: Whither India? (Rajesh Ramakrishnan, 27 February, 2006, Countercurrents.org

The official invitation to President George Bush to visit India is a slap in the face of India's history of struggle against imperialism and has therefore evoked strong opposition from a sizeable section of Indians. The United States Government has a long history of imperialist aggression and war crimes against developing countries. The ravaging of Latin America and South East Asia, and the attack on Yugoslavia, are fresh in public memory. The barbaric attack on Afghanistan and the occupation of Iraq are the bloodiest conflicts of our times. The cruel torture of Iraqi civilians by the US military in the prisons of Abu Ghraib has been beamed worldwide by the media. The recent call of the UN Human Rights Commission to close down the Guantanamo Bay prison camp confirms that torture and abuse are part of the US war machine, evoking memories of Nazi concentration camps. Resistance to this war and occupation is growing within the US and UK. The people of Iraq are still waging a heroic struggle for independence from occupation. The Bush Administration continues to use the September 11 incident to justify a global military onslaught to capture key resources, markets and strategic regions. The threat of military attack looms large over Cuba, North Korea, Syria, Venezuela and now Iran. Falsely painting the Iranian civilian nuclear energy programme as a weapons programme, President Bush, who presides over the largest nuclear weapon stockpile in the world, is preparing for a military attack on Iran.

...India is now a key partner in that imperialist crusade to universalize liberal democracy. It's bad old days of supporting Third World dictatorships just because they were anti-Western are over.

Gee, this guy is really good. He touched all the bases including the obligatory Nazi reference in a single (long) paragraph. He should be writing fro Cindy Sheehan.

This "Ramakrishnan" guy is probably either a U.S. Democrat politician or a Chicom agent. (Redunancy alert!)

I'd grade him 6/10 on this section. He missed the stolen Florida election of 2000, the Zionist NeoKKKon cabal that really runs everything, Halliburton, Jack Abrahamoff, the Gannon/Guckert scandal, Plame/Wilson/Libby, Chimpy McHitler's low IQ, and the secret Christer plot to take over the country (from the Zionist NeoKKKons, I suppose) and close the abortion clinics.

He should be writing for Cindy Sheehan.

You sure he's not?

There's no need to print this whole paragraph, the first three sentences followed by blah blah blah will work. We all know what the blah blah covers, anyway.

I'm surprised he didn't lead with the US military's murder of journalists in Iraq.

Cruel torture in Abu Ghraib? Let's send this guy to a NK detention camp, or anywhere in Chechnya. He'll see some torture there. Heck, Paris is close enough (if you're Jewish).

Rajesh is simply pinin' for the days of the non-aligned movement, where India's leaders would hang with Fidel and claim none of their member nations took any orders from the U.S. or the Soviet Union.
