    Am i the only one who finds it totally reprehensible that yankee marines will be present in India gate pointing guns at Indians ?

    He should fcuk off back to usa if he thinks Indian security isn't upto the mark.

    It is standard policy for every President/PM of every country to take a small posse of his own bodyguards when he travels abroad. Modi takes his own inner security layer with him when he travels.

    But there is a limit - the inner circle of bodyguards can be from the host nation. But not a whole horde. There was some controversy during Obama's previous visit when some Mumbai cops got pissed off with "the secret service trying to meddle and interfere more than required".

    Let us see how many guards accompany him. But he is definitely allowed to have a core security detail from the US, as per international protocol.

    Half a dozen secret service guys is the norm. Im talking about marines manning the outer circle.

    actually, it is known that both are in the hit list may be top 5 of those fu*king terrorists but even I feel that there should be protocol of limitations.

    Yankee marines are needed to supplement local security services. That will give the Americans greater confidence into Obama security. We need that, we need Obama to come, stay safe and return home safely. If everything goes right then, it will be a feather in India 's cap.

    After watching what was going on at Gujarat coast, in Paris and daily effort by Pakis to infiltrate LOC, keeping highly targetted leaders absolutely safe is of paramount importance.

    Just a point, no matter where the US President goes, US secret service perimeter is always manned by them. Others provide circle two and three security.

    true. Security of the nation's leaders should not be taken as a prestige issue. Neither theirs nor ours. We have invited them knowing that such security will be in position during Obama's visit, so being a host we should not suddenly take this minute matter as an issue at all.

    Last time Obama visited India he was kept inside the Mumbai Airport and was not allowed to set foot on Indian Soil for around 45 minutes by the Mumbai Police because of some disagreement over his security arrangements. Our security and law-enforcement agencies are competent enough and his security personnel must not get too cocky about it.

    In my opinion Modi must prefer to not welcome him as Chief Guest of our Republic Day Parade than having some US Marines pointing their guns at Indian citizens on Indian soil. In fact there are indicators that Obama may not attend the parade.

    We don't need a US president to be here to make us feel important.

    So, the conversation will go something like this, wouldn't it?

    Obama: I don't want to attend the ceremony.
    Modi: The invitation still stands.
    Obama: Nonetheless, I won't attend the ceremony.
    Modi: Cool.

    May be Modi has done to Obama what he had done to "Nawaz Sharif" earlier. This might be of zero consequence for Obama, but this visit is politically beneficial for Modi.

    I read this somewhere (not reproduced exactly):
    Diplomacy is an art of offering poison to an adversary in such a manner that the adversary would accept it with a grin on his face and then drink it.

    The US denied visa to Modi.
    Modi reacts by inviting the US president.

    Hindu self-respect at its best.

    Its not about Hindu self respect. Its about Political game where your beloved country - Pakistan is getting cornered and isolated big time.

    THe only person without self respect is you who is pouting nonsense at every discussion.

    If Modi Invites Obama ..its also Called TOLERANCE..or in your case TOLERANCE of a HINDU.. The reason why people like you are still alive.

    Guys like @genius make me realize that there is absolutely no hope of peace or brotherhood with these scum. We have to keep mercilessly bashing their skulls in, like we have been doing. There should be no respite, no let-up. They don't understand the language of peace and tolerance.

    Police vehicles weren't allowed near the plane then, this must not be tolerated.

    There's a difference between being a good host and a gulaam.

    Appu, calm down. It is the USA that denied visa to an Indian. Yet you're not mad at the USA? Why, is it because you are scared ... or because you lack self-respect?

    I'm not mad at the USA because they are influenced by the likes of you and your leftie terrorist pals. They will react to a situation the way it is presented to them. Anti-national traitors like you get together and send a letter to Obama demanding that he refuse to give a Visa to Modi. You traitors did this as recently as 2013.

    You terrorists pretend to hate the US, but grovel before the US to prevent an Indian from getting a Visa, by painting him as a "genocidal maniac", and a variety of other things. When the Indian has an event in the US, you terrorists get together and prevent the event from taking place. It is you terrorists who created the environment for such shit to happen.

    I may be only slightly miffed with the USA, because unlike you terrorists, "US Visa" is not a great achievement in my eyes. For terrorists like you, an American Visa is the pinnacle of achievement, never mind all your anti-US rants. But for me, I don't really care.

    In short, though I am only slightly annoyed with the USA, I know who the real traitors and enemies are - people like you. You are the ones who need to be hounded and punished.

    Typical Appu. Always angry with fellow patriots and groveling at America's feet. If you have guts, then say that you hate the USA for denying visa to our PM Modi.... say it openly on this forum, let's see if you have the guts.
