    Obama should visit Bangladesh since it is an important cog in ISI sponsored terrorism that has the backing of the Jamaait, which is allied to the Opposition Party BNP, of which Khaleda Zia is the boss.

    There is no doubt that the Hasina govt has struck hard on the Islamist terrorists.

    However, her policies and being pro India, apparently has not gone down well with some of the Bangladeshis, mostly the Bihari elements who feel that the Liberation was a mistake and should not have been done. Sadly for these Biharis, Pakistan which promised to take them to Pakistan has abandoned them realising that they are most unreliable and untrustworthy to become Pakistanis. Hence, their grouse against anything India.

    Bangladesh is doing well. However, all help must be given as MMS has indicated by removing the tariff barrier on a host of items on which Bangladesh's economy depends.

    India, because of its indifference to Bangladesh, apparently has allowed the anti India sentiments to foster.

    It is time to look East!

    Certainly while we have a pro India govt in BD, we should make all the right moves to get BD back in favorable terms with India. Apart from the ISI, the Chinese too are trying their best to string their pearls. I am sure if Khaleda Zia was leading that country, China would have gobbled up BD. India has to play the game well.

    If at all GOI will ever substantially trust americans for another joint op. While I'm not in favor of allowing US influence in south asia, still I must say that CIA/SFF should infiltrate BD to dismantle happy-houses of middlemen working for pak,china.

    Khaleda Zia has been the PM of Bangladesh.

    Right now, China is the military equipment supplier for Bangladesh.

    China has made a bid for the deep water sea port and have given Bangladesh the feasibility study.

    China has made a huge inroad into the Bangladeshi psyche, playing on the fear of India's Big Brotherly attitude.

    Currently, there is the US Bangladesh naval exercise going on and therefore, Bangladesh is becoming another playground for international attention.

    It is a good step that the US is showing interest in Bangladesh.
