This moron wants to be taken seriously

The Hindu : Opinion / Leader Page Articles : India must catch up with U.S.-Iran thaw
Equally, it is a sign of the sad depletion of intellectual resources in our country in the recent decade or two that precisely at such a formative period in contemporary world politics, the titans in our strategic community and the media are squatting with eyes cast across the Himalayas, hoping to hear the notes of war drums. The international community will never take us seriously as a regional power if we behave like morons.
The Iran pipeline was constantly making headlines and the petroleum minister was engaging Iran at various levels. All this changed once the nuclear deal entered into the picture. As Brahma Chellany pointed out, what we lost with the deal is our ability to pursue national interests which is evident in the way we are kowtowing to U.S. on the Iran issue. But that is no reason for us to ignore the saber rattlling reverberating in the Himalayas. Below is a sampling from today's newspaper. If our former diplomat is unable to perceive it, it is because he has his head firmly buried in bull excrement.
The intellectual resources of our country could only have shot up after
Bhadrakumar ceased to be a diplomat.

The Hindu : Front Page : India asks China to stop development activity in PoK
The Indian observation came a day after Beijing expressed its “strong disappointment” over Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s visit to Arunachal Pradesh, and New Delhi, in its reaction, noted that such comments would not help in resolving the border issue.
The Hindu : Front Page : Amid tensions, Wen set to meet Manmohan
