There is more to US President George W Bush’s visit to India than what meets the eye.
It’s not just the civilian nuclear deal, nor is it the “so called” friendship that the political pundits talk about.
According to leading Bangladesh daily Daily Star, “The US is a South Asian player to secure its own geopolitical ends. As the lone superpower, it must ensure its status against all challengers, real or potential”.
As of now, it looks as if the US wants to contain China’s grip over the global scenario and it is for this reason that Uncle Sam is keen to engage India.
