+ - US court drops charges against Indian diplomat, reducing tensions

Submitted by ganesh.rao
ganesh.rao (1581043) writes "New Delhi welcomed the favourable decision by a US court to drop charges against the Indian diplomat, Devyani Khobragade, who was charged last year in New York for visa fraud and making false statements about her domestic worker's wages to the US government. The federal judge ruled that the diplomat had immunity at the time of her indictment and hence dismissed the case. However, the ruling on Wednesday could potentially allow prosecutors to bring in new charges if they choose to do so. It would now be safe for the former diplomat to travel to the US to be with her American husband and children."

Correct me if I'm wrong... Poland broke away and became independent from Russia during the Russian Civil War.

Poland's east was Russia. West is Germany.

"In the chaos to the east the Polish forces set out to expand there as much as feasible... "

That statement reads to me as though Polish forces tried to capitalise on the mayhem in Russia and took advantage of the situation.

The native Americans weren't exterminated.

The word "almost" was required.

When did Poland ever try to conquer Russia? It's the other way around. They've been subjugated by Russian rule numerous times.

If you were not indoctrinated into a specific school of thought, you would not have asked that ignorant question.

OP was referring to the most recent war before Soviet Russia invaded Poland for the last time.

To bad for you, the world doesn't look at India's satellite-rockets as an ICBM military program, when the level of threat is far below any country on the planet. India has never invaded another country in over a millennia. It is the only country to be supplied by NSG whilst not having signed the NPT. Any takers?

Every now and then the right wing British media start hating on immigrants.

Through out last year there was the big hype of Bulgarian and Romanian immigration wave from Jan 1, 2014. It is 2014 now, where has all the hype gone? Barely an article or two a month now compared to the twice weekly in 2013.

This sort of thing cultivates racism. IMO.

Maybe business isn't right for you. I'm not sure if they teach these life experiences in your business schools, but that's how the world really works. If you want to enforce that contract through lawyers, that will be the last contract you'll ever enforce. If you are seen as hawkish, people will be reluctant to come to you.

I'm live in Bangalore :)

You still haven't made one useful point in all your posts in this thread. You've simply accused the government yet not offered a single solution. You've accused me of being an outsider, yet you disgrace yourself of being an Indian. You apparently aren't educated at all, did you just finish school?

Again I ask you, where are you and what background do you have with anything related to policies of this country?

Do you really know what it takes to run the government of the largest democracy? You just seem like a kid blaming the government for all your personal short comings.

Let me know when you have something useful to contribute.

The solution to the problem is to throw the ruling bums out from the Centre.

And replace them with bums like yourself?

I'm sorry but that's not a solution. You just have a political view, not a solution. You need to read and learn a lot more.

As much as I'd like to leave this non-productive conversation, it bothers me that people with half-baked information get so loud and unruly. Hence, the need to comment :P

For the uneducated souls like yourself, the term "neocons" abbreviates for neo-conservatism. A fancy word for politically right-wing nut jobs. There are neocons in US, UK, India and in most democratic countries in the world. Surely, you jumped the gun too early. I suppose thats expected since you've been doing that with all your previous citations.

Dumb people like you will always exist. But that's the beauty of India, ignorant people like you do get a chance to speak and we call that right democracy.

I have travelled across the world visiting a wide spectrum of political and religious countries. From Afghanistan to Israel, England to Thailand. I don't need to justify my thoughts and work to the likes of you. You like calling names, lets hear your credentials.

As for the RSS, they are the lowest living souls in this country. Hooligans that this nation hosts in Mumbai. You should have watched MNS Secretary General earlier last night, he used the phrase "super Ghandhisim" on live national television reflecting on the Mumbai police's "softness" on Aug 14th. He openly said that he wanted the Mumbai police to murder civilians during the unrest earlier this month just like the 1992 massacres (were you even born then?). BJP is very closely allied with these right-wing political parties.

I hope for the sake of humanity that we never see such idiots in the Centre. They are only a source of embarrassment to this nation. While the Congress is far from perfect, I do not see any other political party even remotely suitable to even understand our sensitive country.

You look like a depraved Hindu who would happily stand in Godse's shoes, on count. You seem not to understand the difference between corruption and democracy, I guess such understanding is for higher beings than yourself. Oh wait, racism runs in your blood. Ignorance is what is in your head. There is not much anyone can expect from you.

Have a wonderful evening and good night.
