India and the Western Media.

The Western media are profoundly anti-Indian. First, we imagined that it is the work of local reporters posted in India; but now it is becoming clear that the media reporters write what they are told to write by higher ups e.g. the Chief Diplomatic Correspondent of opinion maker media outlets of The New York Times or the Washington Post etc. They in fact are in touch with their governments. The same is true of all the British media outlets like the BBC, the Economist, the Guardian etc.

All these media outlets have local representatives who are tasked to concentrate more on the negative aspect of India’s rapid economic advancement and or all negative aspects of India’s diversity and ethnicity.

It has gone on 75 years since the British were ejected and India became neutral in international affairs. At that time, India was economically weak and the West was making fun of India’s low rate of progress. A real effort to improve relations with the West was made from 1998 to 2004 by the Vajpayee government. That lead to a bit of smiles on both sides, but it did not last long. The second real effort came from right wing Modi government. PM, Modi launched a charm offensive in America and invited Presidents Obama and Trump to India with great fanfare. The Hope was that improved relations will result. It had some good impact, but the major media outlets like the NYT misinterpreted the charm offensive by advertising to hire an anti Modi reporter(s) in Delhi.

Any self respecting nation will take this to be an offense and would eject all relevant reporters out, but India did not take that step and allowed anti Modi hiring in Delhi. All this happened before even the Ukraine war started. In addition India supported US move to set up QUAD in Indo-Pacific region to check the Chinese ambitions. The US was pleased.

The shrillness of the anti India propaganda in US multiplied several times as India took a neutral stand on Ukrainian War. The NATO/Americans are to be equally blamed for this war as they cleverly wished to reach the Russian border via Ukraine. That is a no-no in international relations. Now purchases of cheap Russian oil by India is not sitting well US.

For the British; they preferred India at the bottom of the barrel, but nay; India has passed economically the Britons with $3.5 Trillion economy. That fact does not sit well with them. In fact India is the fourth largest economy in 2022.

It is not only the large media outlets which lead anti-India reporting, but officially inspired social media with sinister intents have been posting bad to worst about India. On the other hand they ignore their own mass shootings or other racial and minority incidents in the US. A few bulldozer incidents which have a dramatic impact on miscreants who will burn or loot or occupy others property have been highlighted without telling that the sight of a bulldozer has a dramatic impact on calming miscreants and their leaders.

Such are ways, how propaganda works in the West, although they call it free press/media.

Liberal elites are disguised colonists, who re-dressed themselves as saviours of 'democracy, human values & freedom', as times changed. There is no difference between these people and the colonial commanders who whipped African, Asian and South American native slaves in their cotton fields. It's just that they cannot have such a naked display of aggression without economic repercussions so they pretend as if everything they do is from the perspective of morality.

They know that Asian countries listen to what they think and they use this as a weapon to further their power.
The only Eastern country that doesn't give a rat's ass about the Western Liberal views is China. It trades with them, takes their money, takes their jobs, and does whatever it wants to. That change is slowly happening in India as well, but we cannot do what China does yet. There is still some time before we can start ignoring the West and doing what is best for us all the time.

Until then, balancing the West is the only way. This means, playing decent international politics while hardening our position against secular/liberal NGOs, Islamists and all other Liberal shenanigans that we have been putting up with for the last 4-5 decades.

Now it is becoming very clear that all American media biases were reflecting the changes coming to
American policy towards Pakistan. All Western media biases are officially inspired. Media is putting words to it.

The Americans internally debating punishment to India for buying Russian oil. They approached this issue with the path of least resistance. No congressional approvals are needed. Just supply arms to Pakistan and India will get the message.

They could add to $450 million a few hundred millions more and India will be forced to spend more money on defence than it saved by buying Russian oil.

India should avoid buying weapons from US.... Indian navy should rethink buying f 18....also govt should fast track france-indo engine deal(130kn), with 2-3 sq of rafale(make sure THIS time INDIAN weapons like astra,rudram can be integrated).

India: F-16 is obsolete, we don’t want them. 😂
India also: if PAF gets F-16V, balance of power will tilt against us. (agree, it will) 😂😂 India gets award for contradictions
Fact: F-16V is a kickass fighter and for the price, better than anything on offer today. Seems like cost/benefit analysts don’t work in Indian government defense offices.

The f 16 did not even reach the L1 stage against the eurofighter and rafale . Cope

F16 is the only proven BVR of the pakis as well as the nuclear delivery platform.

F-16 is still a potent fighter even if it doesn't meet Indian requirements and India has better alternatives.

Since Pak doesn't have any other good fighter in inventory and improves chance sof survivability of PAF by both numerical and quantitative factors. PAF minus these free F-16 was indeed an easier game.

And how many of those amazing euro canards could you buy? 😂
36. Buying larger number of F-16 won't work either for Air Force like Indian which already operates other planes for F-16 roles. Recruiting aircraft is for small air forces which lack numbers.

As told before, F-16 is for countries which can't afford better things.

India don't need single engine fighter and yes F16 is a kick ass fighter , both statement are true.

The problem of India is not about US selling F16 , The problem is pretext which says its been sold to Pakistan to counter terrorism.
We all know what it will used against .

Americunts should "man up" and say it straight that they are arming Pakistan against India just like how they are arming Ukraine against Russia.

Instead, Americunts take the backdoor and say that F16's are for anti-Terrorist operations.
I am worrying about American sub national diplomacy . I think government should outright bans the NGO and say in clear terms that they won’t go ahead with this subnational .
Pakistan 🇵🇰 being garrison of west is clear .trump was exception.it was propped for that for thorn besides india. I also think our economy will go nowhere like the Chinese way so better prepare for what’s coming.
