As Oil Price Falls, Cash Strapped Russia's President Arrives in India

The Russians are big players in oil/gas exports. Oil prices have fallen from $146 a barrel in July to about $34 today. No wonder the Russians' backsides are burning. What will the President of Russia get as a gift from the Indian government after his visit to India?
  • Probably the Admiral Gorshkov ship deal - which was held up because of Russians demanding a preposterous price - will now be passed by the spineless Congress(I) Government.
  • Probably a deal for some more fighter planes and tanks?
  • Probably leasing of a few nuclear subs?
But then, the Congress(I). has to play fair, it gave such a superb deal to the Americans on the nuclear deal didn't it? How about a confidence vote to get the Gorshkov deal signed Mr. Manmohan Singh?

A naive, self doubting, recognition-mongering Indian is better off giving a wide berth to people who mouth platitudes like "Natural ally", "Relations ascending to new heights", "Strategic partnership" etc. They are what they are, empty words! What speaks louder than words is plain money. In this moment of world economic crisis, the Indian household has been able to save enough to bail it's government and banks out! This is a moment of our strength, we Indians should talk to the world demanding the respect we deserve. But you can bet that the inept and malicious Congress(I) government will give the greedy and cunning Russians a superb deal on a platinum platter sacrificing our respect.

The media was again at it's spineless best mouthing platitudes fed to them by the Russian spin-doctors and their collaborators/agents in India. This report from Indian Express (published on yahoo) is a case in point. I haven't checked up LiC's (N rAvaNa's) views on the visit, I can bet they will be on similar lines.

Anna,

By looking into the following link,

http://ibnlive.in.com/news/russia-demands-more-money-for-admiral-gorshkov/78210-2.html

We can make out India is made a scapegoat and is to pay high money..

I feel the improving ties between Russia and China is also making Russia to take tough stand against India.. By looking into the earlier years and also on the fifth generation joint fighter aircraft devpt programme ( i am sorry its modification programme http://livefist.blogspot.com/2007/10/farce-generation-fighter-aircraft.html) Indo-Russian ties is of a BUYER-SELLER not not of FRIENDSHIP...

Well, all thanks(speaking in -ve sense, actually i mean SHAME) to Congress(I),who carved FORIEGN POLICIES and making EVERY INDIAN a INDIRECT SLAVE even INDEPENDENCE...
