        India's delusion as an ally of the United States, it is impossible! Japan, South Korea, Singapore etc. is the United States ally, but these countries have the US military occupation, these countries military, political, diplomatic, etc., are subject to the control of the United States, although these countries on the surface is an independent democratic country, The United States provides that these countries can not develop missiles with a range of more than 500 kilometers, can not develop nuclear weapons, can not develop large-scale offensive weapons, all of which are subject to US control / restrictions, US soldiers often rape local women serious nuisance, occupation of farmer land,Once the economy developed into strong, it will be cut wool(80's Japan is an example)... Indians IQ 82 is too low, delusional to become an American allies, but actually want to be a US colony, hahaha

            We keep hearing this daily. When some serious action is going to be taken to stop this kind of barbaric act. It is time we follow Israelis in giving two hits when we are hit once and put the fear of God in Porkies. Enough is enough.
