India-Russia ties privileged, strategic: PM

Oct 21 2013, 9:46am CDT | by IANS

Moscow, Oct 21 (IANS) Cooperation with Russia is a "special and privileged strategic partnership" for India, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said Monday.

Moscow, Oct 21 — Cooperation with Russia is a "special and privileged strategic partnership" for India, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said Monday.

"The depth, diversity and dynamism of our cooperation testifies to the fact that ours is truly a special and privileged strategic partnership," the prime minister said in a Twitter message after his summit meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

He thanked Putin for giving a new push to the ties between the two countries.

"I express my deep appreciation to President Putin for his contribution in giving new direction and content to India-Russia relations," he said.

"Our discussions were characterised by the warmth, goodwill and trust that permeate all aspects of our partnership," he said.

The prime minister said he was satisfied with the cooperation between the two countries in various areas.

"I am satisfied with the progress in our bilateral cooperation, including in defence, energy, high-technology trade, investment, space & trade," he said.

Noting that the two countries have "a high degree of convergence on global developments and collaborate constructively in international forums", the prime minister said "the Kudankulam nuclear power project is an important symbol of our strategic partnership where commercial power production will start shortly".

"Our defence cooperation continues to be strong, and we expect that Russia will remain a key defence partner for India," he said.

The prime minister thanked President Putin for his "personal efforts towards securing a peaceful political settlement to the Syrian conflict".

"We also emphasised our shared interest in a peaceful and stable transition in Afghanistan next year," he said.

The prime minister expressed hope that the ties between the two countries will grow.

"I am confident that we'll successfully exploit our growing convergence of interests and take our strategic partnership to even greater heights," he said.

Memo from 'W': 'Welcome to the war on terror'

To: President Barack Obama From: Former President George W. Bush Topic: Iraq Message: “We’re ba-a-a-ack!” I’ve been quiet these last six years. But your belated decision to “destroy” ISIS prompted me to write. You repeatedly scorched my presidency, said that I so botched up things, so destroyed American foreign policy that all you had to do was not be George W.

Best ISIS strategy: Nuke 'em

Sep 19 2014 6:36pm CDT | Source: WND

With near unanimity among experts in warfare, President Barack Hussein Obama’s “strategy” to defeat ISIS is a sham that is designed to lose. While the “Muslim in Chief’s” motivation to fail can be attributed in part to his Islamic heritage, Obama’s professed method of combat is strangely reminiscent of President George W. Bush’s initial strategy after Sept. 11, 2001. In the weeks following the horrific terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, “W,” ...

As the debate rages over whether the president needs congressional authorization for war prior to his deployment of the military to degrade or destroy ISIS, the terrorist organization that none of us had heard about until a few months ago, the nation has lost sight of the more fundamental issue of President Obama’s infidelity to the rule of law. On the lawfulness of his proposed war, the president has painted himself into a corner. Las ...

The 'Good' Iraq War? 5 Things to Consider Before We March Into Another Mideast Quagmire

Sep 16 2014 7:09pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

ISIS is a bad bunch. A deliberately macabre and diabolical death cult. Their shock and horror strategy fuels fear in their subjects, and pride in their growing band of messianic losers, freaks and disaffected Ba'athists (thank you, Douglas Feith). However, in many ways, they are no different than other marauding bands of bad guys around the planet: from Uganda's (now possibly Congo's) Acholi-Christian-Islamic madman Joseph Kony and his Lord ...
