Let me understand the mighty US sent one fleet as their grand war plan to take on India or Russia. Thats what you logic reads as . the fact they did not do anything other a drive by, is not US supporting genocide. You need to learn that when we want to stop something we know how to do it.
secondly, you seem to be hurt by Pakistan not being included. I was doing list of genocial dictators supported by china and not US. and we have learned our lesson to where we don't support Pakistan's terrorists or dictators. . We forced Musharaff to hold elections. We are funding to have them killed ( terrorist), we are pissing on their sovereignty every day...we are deriding them in public often. Pakistan is warned , talked to like a punk and told that all funding is towards Afghanistan and not to mess with India.
Not only that, (1) the US threatened to attack India if India supported Mukti Bahini and (2) prodded PRC to invade India. However, Pakistan was already a friend of PRC.
Thankfully, USSR told PRC that they will nuke PRC if PRC invaded India and sent it's own vessels that made the US 7th Fleet scoot away from that region. The USSR also got all the Warsaw Pact countries to recognise Bangladesh's independence. On the other hand, the US Congress was critical of the genocide and did not want the US to support Pakistan, but then, Nixon was just being Nixon.
JayATL, I don't think you know much about what happened then, or are embarrassed to admit it, by virtue of the country of your adoption. Don't confuse your obligation to be patriotic with your obligation to speak the truth.
When we mention US, we are not pointing fingers at the people of US. It was mainly Nixon. I appreciate the stand taken by the US Congress which was ignored by Nixon, because he thought he was smarter than the rest, just like you.
That what it sounds like.Like stories made up in comic books , revisionist history.
" US wanted the PRC but the PRC was friend with the Pakistanis and the Ruskies threatened nukes. But some how the ruskies never threatened Nukes when they were being killed in Afghanistan ( who cares for actual russian lives)- BUT HEY! they certainly would have nuked everyone for India
Funny stuff that works in yall's head. It is still baffling how you actually believe that US came with one fleet to take on everyone. after all the claim is made that they came to stop India with few ships . Brilliant!
Band camp only? So you didn't make it to a military camp, did you? Your loud and verbose comments confirm that.
How about you sound like another deluded Zaid Hamid?
The Soviets actually fought a war with PRC, but then, you probably don't know that.
Yes Sir, they had already chalked out plans to bomb the hell out of Calcutta and Visakhapatnam. However, if you want to believe they came here to take some stunning photographs of the flying fish, by all means do so.
LOL, wtf has soviet fighting a war with PRC have to do with me laughing at your statement that soviets were ready to nuke the US and that the US CAME TO A FIGHT WITH 3-4 SHIPS ONLY! no back ups, no contigency plan, no authorization from the congress to start world war 3... just a 3-4 ships :rofl:
US had a plan to bomb Calcutta and entire India? LOL . you are cracking me up. there is not semblance of logical thinking here. This is going downhill.
For starting world war 3 , I would imagine even your lack of logic would agree that congress would need to approve it. Plus Nixon was no Bush to go for it without approval. he could move locations of ships, but that's all.
USSR would Nuke a Nuclear weaponized country ( china) over India, but sat there and got killed by the thousands in afghanistan without issuing any such threat.
The US leaded the flop SEATO of which Pakistan was a member and as per the treaty any attack upon a member nation was to be taken as an attack upon the whole military bloc, later due to the failure of Uncle to protect its nephew ultimately resulted in termination of Pakistani membership from SEATO, note that Pakistan was also the member of CENTO leaded by UK which rejected the idea of attacking India
1. I am surprised that you are unaware of the Power exercised by the President of United States of America. Your President is more powerful then the congress even after the War Powers Resolution of 1973.
2. I think you had not studied cold war politics and history well, go through it you will find your answer within it. Hint is: cold war politics, Cuba missile crisis.
