Too many exercises and co-operation in the defence field happening between the US and India these days. Close on the heels of the armies of the two countries taking part in Yudh Abhyas 2009 at Babina near Jhansi, its time for the Air Force of the two countries to take part in Cope India 2009 at Agra.
Is it just co-incidence or is there too much that is not being read into it? With Pakistan fast spiralling into a deep abyss, are India and US practising for the time when the threat of the Pakistani govt being run over by the Taliban comes true?
Is the close co-operation a signal that the governments of both sides accept the fact that Pakistan is fast losing its fight against the Taliban and the ISI propped up terrorists. Maybe the governments know something that people in general dont know. Maybe its an exercise to practise how to decamp with Pakistani nuclear weapons in case of a runover of the Pakistani government by terrorists.
Finally the monster created, nurtured and propped up by successive Pakistani governments against India is coming back to bite the master itself.
Like the saying, “the one who digs a hole for the other falls into it himself first”. How true. Not a good sign for India to see its neighbour descend into chaos, but there is nothing much India can do other than exasperate at the happenings in the neighbourhood. The chickens have come home to roost.
How long the Pakistani government and its army will bury its head in the sand like an Ostrich before they understand that the monster they created is finally too big for them to control and is hell bent on destroying their own country.
It was Pakistan’s Prime Minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto who declared that Pakistan will eat grass, but will make a nuclear bomb. Looks like the time to eat grass has come. Finally.
