I want all our comrades to appreciate the fact this is a great victory in the fight against US imperialism. The deal was worked out secretly, keeping the Indian Parliament in the dark. Neither were the constituents of the ruling coalition, supporting the Congress party were kept informed, let alone the Communists who were extending outside support and on whose crucial support the government survives.
The government went so far ahead with the deal, that when it came out, it took it up as a matter of prestige and defended the deal and invented all sorts of excuses to push the deal through. The big business and the upper classes, who would have been the biggest beneficiaries of closer link-up with US enthusiastically took over the job of defending the deal, manufacturing (or shall we say cooking-up) popular consent in the all-too cooperative Big Biz Press.
On the US side, the deal would have given a great leverage to the US to arm twist India into serving US global interests. Condolezza Rice, taking for granted that US already has India in its pocket had started giving lessons to India on how to dump non-alignment.
Now the Indian Communists will wage a fight against the closer military links between US and India.
