Reconsider Indo US relations!


Just because the balance is not in our favour!


Indian and US media make us believe that Under Presidents Bush and Obama, the USA has demonstrated accommodation to India's core national interests and acknowledged outstanding concerns.It seems not be the reality despite media hype.


US at no point supported Indian interests to defend its sovereignty and integrity and contrarily,it has been using and helping other forces to undermine India at every level as it had bee during cold war era.


The  global scenario would have a turnaround if DonaldTrump becomes the next President of America not because of his most controversial hate campaign against Islam ,but his America first agenda which sounds quite racial and reminds us the rise of Hitler yet another time.Mind you, the third day of the Republican National Convention is titled "Make America First Again" which declared Trump`s candidature.


VOX explains:


In 1940, "America First" referred to a group that resisted America's entry into World War II before Pearl Harbor. The cause eventually came to be associated with not just antiwar objectors but also virulent anti-Semites, and the term itself became somewhat taboo. In the decades since, politicians have mostly shied away from the phrase, with a few exceptions on the fringe like Pat Buchanan.


Then came Donald Trump. He's happily seized on an expression that once stood for isolationism and xenophobia and turned it into one of his many vague, ebullient catchphrases. Much like "Make America Great Again!" Trump uses "America First!" as an exclamation point to sum up everything from energy policy to his support for veterans.


Yet even if he seems ignorant of the phrase's historical origins, the disquieting history of how "America First" eventually became a byword for anti-Semitism is relevant to his presidential campaign. The America First movement attracted many of the same kinds of people drawn to Trump, including racists and bigots empowered by seeing their views reflected in a national debate.


However,it is claimed that Indian diplomacy ensured increase in bilateral trade & investment, cooperation on global security matters, inclusion of India in decision-making on matters of global governance (United Nations Security Council), upgraded representation in trade & investment forums (World Bank, IMF, APEC), admission into multilateral export control regimes (NSG, MTCR, Wassenaar Arrangement, Australia Group) and joint-manufacturing through technology sharing arrangements have become key milestones and a measure of speed and advancement on the path to closer US-India relations.


We see no reflection in reality and United States captured Indian Market without serving India's interests.


The strategic relationship with US has never touched the level of Indo USSR strategic relationship as US has other allies to defend for example Israel and UK.


Fox news broke the news long before that Canada began fencing its border along with United States of America as soon as Donald Trump emerged potential enough to become the Republican Candidate for next US President lest Canada should be flooded with refugee influx just because of  Anti Islam Trump Agenda.


We should have learnt the lesson.

But we reject to learn.


Indian diplomacy seemed diplomatic enough as it has never been independent and had been tagging itself with some super power with changing global trends and equation.


Even the nonaligned movement was not so nonaligned and it was virtually and really aligned with USSR.


Even today,despite India opened its defence sector for global market Russia has the Lion`s share in Indnian defence market after two decades since the demise of USSR.


The logic that the globe is unipolar is not enough to defend Indian interests as we opted to tag us with United States of America since Indo US nuclear deal signed and we became the strategic partner of United States of America in US War against terror.


It is suicidal if we keep in mind the diverse demography in the geopolitics which has more than enough population of those people who has faith in Islam


It has complicated our internal security problems as United sates of America has waged a war against Islam since oil war and made Saddam Hussein a scapegoat to capture natural resources in Asia and Africa.


More over,US is better known as the creator of global terror network.It created Taliban and helped it to the point that the help carried drains of poison to deestablise India since eighties and Taliban kits of weapons were handed over to extremists and terrorists in India to put India on explosive carrier of deestablizaton.


We may look back to eighties and nineties.


Than US created Al Qaeda to import Arabian Spring and Al Qaeda was followed up by by ISIS which has captured Bangladesh now and almost 250 million refugees might break in India as Bangladesh situation is out of control.


It is greater danger than Bangladesh war.


Mind you, In 1961, India became a founding member of the Non-Aligned Movement to avoid involvement in the Cold War power-play between the USA and USSR. The Nixon administration's support for Pakistan during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971 affected relations till the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991. 


In the 1990s, Indian foreign policy adapted to the unipolar world and developed closer ties with the United States.Then US sent seventh fleet to stop Indian intervention in Bangladesh.



Now,Donald Trump has become the Republican candidate and he has declared America First.It means he has US interests on topmost which further means those interests would not be Indian interests at all despite the hyped friendship between the leadership of the two nations.


Trump has declared his agenda in fine print and Indian diplomacy need to reconsider Indo US strategic relations afresh as Trump agenda would have serious impact on the complex demography of this geopolitics which would become calamities for us.


It would not be reality if Trump becomes the next president of America as the Republican platform adopted by the party national convention considerably dilutes the rhetoric that fuelled presidential candidate Donald J Trump's primary campaign, and sticks to traditional U.S positions on several key foreign policy issues.


Well,the document describes India a "geopolitical ally and a strategic trading partner" and states, with Pakistan, "a working relationship is necessary, though sometimes difficult." A Republican administration will work towards securing the nuclear arsenal of Pakistan, echoing a concern that has guided the Obama administration's South Asia policy. On Afghanistan and West Asia, the Republican document "blames the current administration's feckless treatment of troop commitments and blatant disregard of advice from commanders on the ground."


While the customary paragraph on India in the document reflects continuity and stability, and even singles out Indian Americans for praise – "Republicans note with pride the contributions to our country that are made by our fellow citizens of Indian ancestry" – the section on immigration leaves room for concern from an Indian perspective.


Trump's advisers say turbocharging the economy is his most urgent priority, and it's likely that shortly after taking office a President Trump would put forth an economic plan that would slash government spending, trim federal bureaucracies and radically reduce taxes.

US media reported all about Trump agenda and it should be read thorouhly to read the psyche of the potential republican nex presidential candidate.


While Trump remains unpredictable and often reverses himself on policy issues, here's what the candidate and his top advisers say they are going to prioritize should he win the presidency in November:


 


Taxes


Trump is poised to release his updated tax plan, which has been worked on for weeks by his economic advisers, including Moore and CNBC commentator Larry Kudlow.


"It will be similar to the original plan but just more fleshed out," Moore told The Hill. "We think we've got a way to minimize the cost of it."


Moore and Kudlow have been fixated on reducing the effect of the Trump tax plan on the deficit. The nonpartisan Tax Foundation estimated that the original iteration of Trump's tax plan — which slashed corporate and income taxes — "would end up reducing tax revenues by $10.14 trillion over the next decade when accounting for economic growth from increases in the supply of labor and capital."


Moore said the new version will dramatically reduce that hit on the deficit, and he believes the "explosive" growth set off by the steep tax cuts, coupled with spending cuts, will create a balanced budget.


"We're going to make the Europeans pay more for NATO; we are going to get rid of ObamaCare, that's a huge saver; we've got this Penny Plan where we're forcing agencies to cut a penny each year from its budget," Moore said.


The Penny Plan is an idea whereby the administration would tell every agency in government, "Next year, instead of spending a dollar, you're going to spend 99 cents. ... Then you keep doing that for four or five years and you get trillions of dollars of savings because of the compounding effect," Moore said. 


Moore added that in his meetings with Trump, the billionaire has been "hyper-obsessed with getting the middle-class [and] working-class Americans not just more jobs but better-paying jobs," and Trump has directed his economic team to pursue those goals above all else.


 


Spending cuts 


During the primary campaign, Trump indicated that, in the search for budget savings, he'd eliminate federal agencies, possibly including the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Education.


Such promises were commonplace during the heated Republican primary race, and a source familiar with the inner workings of the Trump campaign at the highest levels told The Hill that Trump as president wouldn't do anything so radical as eliminate whole agencies. 


"I don't think that is reasonable or actually can be done," the source said. "It's just not real."


Trump would instead pursue spending cuts in these agencies, and the billionaire considers the easiest places to find savings to be the EPA and the Department of Education, the source said.


"Part of his agenda is going to be doing more with less. ... Not necessarily defense spending, but he'll be asking some of these bloated bureaucracies to reel in their spending."


 


Immigration and national security


The wall has become synonymous with a Trump presidency, so it's safe to say that building one across the border with Mexico will be one of the Trump administration's first moves. 


"One thing that's always brought up in talking to him ... is building that wall," said a senior Trump campaign source. 


"He takes that extremely seriously," the source said. "Something's going to happen in that first 100 days."


But there's still confusion about what that wall will look like. 


The real estate magnate has gone into great detail about his pet project, noting in August it will be made from precasted concrete. But two Trump surrogates, former Texas Gov. Rick Perry and New York Rep. Chris Collins, have told reporters that they believe Trump's wall will be "virtual" instead of tangible.


Another potential stumbling block is who will pay for the wall. Trump says Mexico, and his campaign published a policy paper showing how a Trump administration would use regulations to block remittances from illegal immigrants — an important part of the Mexican economy.


But few Republicans in Washington believe it's likely that Mexico will pay for the wall, and still fewer among the party's corporate wing are eager to start a trade war with the United States's southern neighbor.


Once the plans for the wall are hashed out, Trump will likely pivot to immigration. That means President Obama's immigration executive orders will likely be gone, to the joy of fellow Republicans. 


His initial call to temporarily ban all Muslim immigrants from entering the country, one of his more controversial ideas, has recently shifted into a ban on people from countries with a "history of terrorism." Trump's executive branch would have to determine a list of which countries qualify — the State Department currently lists just three countries on its list of state sponsors of terrorism: Iran, Sudan and Syria. It's likely that he'd expand on that list to include other countries in the Middle East. 


 


Trade


If Trump wins the White House, he'll do so in no small part thanks to his bold pronouncements on trade that have aggravated the staunchly pro-trade GOP establishment.


His main whipping post has been the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a deal he's described as a "death blow to American manufacturing." If elected, he'd almost certainly pull the U.S. from the deal Obama is working toward. He's also floated a withdrawal from the North American Free Trade Agreement, which has been U.S. policy since 1994. 


His tough stance on trade would likely result in the U.S. clamping down on potential violations, especially in China, while pushing for larger tariffs on a variety of imports.


Many of these policies worry much of the Chamber of Commerce Republican establishment, which has spent decades touting free trade and worries Trump will start trade wars with the United States's most valuable partners.


 


Energy


The Trump campaign's list of priorities for his first 100 days includes a call to remove restrictions on energy production, a bread-and-butter issue for conservatives looking to take the restraints off of private business. 


He outlined his energy wish list during a May speech in North Dakota, specifically promising that in the first 100 days, he'd preserve the Keystone XL pipeline, slash executive actions and regulations, allow energy production on federal lands, scrap the Paris climate agreement and halt U.S. involvement in United Nations global warming programs. 


For establishment conservatives, there are no surprises there. Trump's energy policies, as described, fall almost in lockstep with conservative orthodoxy. 


 


ObamaCare


Trump has promised, along with just about every Republican presidential hopeful, to repeal and replace ObamaCare. 


"ObamaCare: We're going to repeal it; we're going to replace it, get something great," Trump said at a rally back in September.


He does not have a fully fleshed-out plan to replace the healthcare system but has called for a plan that allows insurance sales across state lines, tax-deductible premiums, prioritizated health savings accounts, and federal grants to states to manage Medicaid on a state level.
