Our New Best Friend

Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is on his way to the U. S. for meetings with President Bush. From ExpressIndia: Singh said, “India attaches the highest importance to further developing and strengthening the strategic partnership with the us, both in the bilateral context as well as to strengthen our partnership to meet global challenges. As the world’s two largest democracies, we have common values and interests.”

On the agenda: terrorism and, interestingly, United Nations reform. China is, of course, watching. And the world goes on, Europe slippng imperceptibly off the radar screen.
