There is a lot of buzz about the new offers of collaboration. Some IDRW reports state that Boeing has offered its larger platforms for DRDO AWACS like the Boeing 787 for long-range AWACS operations (likely to replace the future Beriev A-50 Il-76 based AWACS that we have). They are also working with Air India to set up a full overhauling plant in India for these platforms.

While IDRW isn't an authentic source (a lot of speculative news), if any of this is true, then the Americans are serious about trying to wean us away from Russia. Though their assumption of our relationship being a transactional one (and not strategic) is badly misunderstood.

There are other sources as well, like this:

Sidelining Airbus For Boeing, Indian Air Force Finally On Track To Acquire Mid Air Refuelers To Power Its Fighter Jets

Also given the diametrically opposite views of IAF and the Navy, the latter might end up choosing Super Hornet over Rafale. Navy to IAF is like Pakistan to India.
''lot of buzz'' and only buzz nothing serious, may be another humiliation for USA. USA can't replace Russia, but humiliate themselves. Boeing trying hard to sell air refuelers, with zero success, IAF goes with EU always and now Airbus platform with Israel refueling tech. In the case of IN, first IN consider SH, but found out US unreliability partnership and now considering rafale M. Till date USA unable to provide any tech and Russia a giant ahead in tech sharing and USA at least 200 years away from replacing Russia.

There is a India-US Defence Technologies and Trade Initiative (DTTI) formed more than a decade ago. Not even a single project has come from this despite much hype.

US clearly isn't serious about India relations, they dont even have an ambassador here since 2 years

Going by the Q&A, looks like this commission is viewing India as a core to their Hub & Spoke model in "South Asia". mostly favourable commentary except on bilateral trade front. Bilateral Trade Issue is an old refrain, it won't get solved unless our exchange rate with USD improves, and it is not our fault that muricans and europeans transferred their manufacturing capacity of things we want to china.

on a side note, This young lady Darshana Baruah seems to be a good talent, hopefully she does not become a slave to ideologies in the future. We don't mind an Indian working for america's best interests since america's & India's interests are aligned at the moment, issue comes when folks give higher priority to illogical personal ideological preferences at the detriment of US-India relationship (there are too many of this kind of coconuts in DC at the moment).

by the way one of the experts Jagannath Panda testified that India's new nationalistic approach under modi spooked Xi Jinping. would have been nice if the point is placed on record that it used to take ITPB 7 days to reach PP at LAC pre-modi and now it takes less than a day to reach there, which in turn is the reason for increased encounters of Indian security forces with PLA at LAC since 2016-17.

on that RAND corp. fellow derek grossman

So India's rupee-roubles arrangement was violation of rules based order but now when other European countries are doing it, this has become a rule in rules based order. This is so dumb and hypocritical and he is a professor and analyst in a reputed think tank.

What last few months since start of Russia’s war has shown is that India, contrary to its rhetoric & hopes of its partners, doesn’t truly seek to uphold a rules-based intl order. Rather, Modi govt is chock-full of ultra-realists who only seek to secure Indian interests. Full stop

Before jumping to conclusions on this tweet, consider that being “ultra-realists” may actually be a good thing. I’m on the record as saying the Modi govt’s foreign policy has been quite effective.

19 killed in shooting in Buffalo,USA

Apparently a white supremacist who streamed it on twitch
Seems like obvious false flag. Calls himself a "white supremacist" and kills 6 white people.

Guy was inspired by "literature" asking people to commit mass shootings.

Much of the contemporary literature encouraging people to commit random mass shootings rather than fight politically as a group is written and disseminated by the FBI.

This is not speculation. It was confirmed in court.
