US Senate for greater anti-terror Indo-US efforts

The US knows that Pakistan is a terrorist state. However, it will not do anything to help India against Pakistan. The reason is very simple: it is not the job of Americans to protect Indians or to fight for them.

India's people will have to sit up and demand action from the idiots they have elected to govern them. Or get rid of these stupid fools in India's government and put in some people who know how to do their jobs. Like T N Seshan, K P S Gill, and many others.

We are at war, the country is in great danger, and we need some real leaders. Idiots like Arjun Singh, Ambubani Ramadoss, Sonia Gandhi, Manmohan Singh, Pranab Mukherjee, etc can be brought back into government when times are good and no intelligent or purposeful action is needed from government.

Hindustan Times reports:

The US Senate has condemned in the strongest terms the July 11 terrorist attacks in Mumbai and expressed its support for the enhancement of strategic cooperation between the United States and India with the goal of combating terrorism and advancing peace and security.

A bipartisan resolution moved by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee's Republican chairman, Richard Lugar, leading democrat Joseph Biden and 18 others expressed its solidarity with the government and people of India in fighting and defeating terrorism in all its forms.

The Senate also expressed its condolences to the families and friends of those individuals killed in the attacks and expressed its sympathies to those individuals who have been injured.

The resolution noted that the government of India has been engaged in joint efforts with the US government to combat terrorism and to ensure a safer and more secure world.

The United States and India, both multi-cultural, multi-religious democracies that abhor terrorism in all its forms, will continue to work steadfastly together to overcome terrorist ideology and establish peace and security, it said.

On the other hand, the terrorists responsible for these attacks seek to disrupt the free, democratic, and pluralistic lifestyle enjoyed by the people of India, it added.

Following is the text of the resolution:

Condemning in the strongest terms the July 11, 2006, terrorist attacks in India and expressing sympathy and support for the families of the deceased victims and wounded as well as steadfast support to the Government of India as it seeks to reassure and protect the people of India and to bring the perpetrators of this despicable act of terrorism to justice.
