Left to paagal hai!

"As long as the left has any future in this country, this country has no future left", was a pithy and witty remark made by Cho Ramaswamy, editor of the magazine Tuglak. How true this statement is, becomes very clear when we look at how the left has conducted itself after propping up a weak Congress led government led by a remarakably spineless Prime Minister two and a half years ago.

First came their demand to scrap the anti-terror law POTA enacted by the previous government. It was a necessity for them in their ideological warfare with the right. It doesn't matter to them if the nation loses because of that. Then they wanted the Government propped by them and headed by one of India's weakest Prime ministers, to have a relook at the improving Indo-US relations. How can you become friends with a 'Capitalist' state like US! If it were in their hands they would have even gone to war with US.

With their minds warped in an ideology that is definitely past its time, they wanted India to not even say 'Hello' to Israel. It doesn't matter to them that Israel is very important for our defence needs. Again if it was their own Government they would have probably derecognised Israel as a nation, thinking that this will teach Israel a lesson.

Then they used their new found powers in helping Maoists in Nepal to overthrow the Hindu Kingdom in Nepal. This was again a stupendous ideological victory for them. Then one day the Chinese ambassador says "Arunachal Pradesh belongs to China". When all political parties condemned the remark and reiterated that Arunachal Pradesh is an integral part of India, the loony left fell way short of doing so and said that "This was a historical dispute". This can only happen with the Indian prototype of a communist.

Their obsession with China is so insane that, they were complaining that the government was not allowing investments from China. This is also blatant hypocrisy as they are the ones to show the red flag(pun intended) whenever the Government considers increasing foreign direct investments. Any other country other than China, will invest in India with the sole intention of curbing India's independence is what the Indian Communists strongly believe. J P Narayan, once said that "the communists are Soviet stooges". Now the only difference is they are Chinese stooges.

The fact that they can condescend to any level was evident when they wanted India to strongly condemn death penalty to Saddam, a person who had killed millions of people during his tenure. What US is doing in Iraq may not be the most appropriate thing, but that does not necessitate India to condone the heinous crimes that Saddam did. But these are things beyond the scope of the Left's anachronistic ideology driven intellect. But the country cannot sufer because of them. We have to get rid of this loony left menace as soon as possible. Otherwise far greater dangers than we have seen are definitely in store.

The POTA incident was certainly flabbergasting. It was only the tit-for-tat mentality at play here. The NDA had enacted it, therefore we should repeal it. Insects think better.

Our relations with Israel have been historically ambiguous. While India has, supposedly, nursed the Palestinean cause in her heart, she has strategically looked to Israel for maintaining the balance of power less blatantly in favour of China in this region. We need to shed this 'caring for our appearance' behaviour. I mean, if we appear to support Israel, everyone might think we're a hegemonic state ourselves. This is bull. We shouldn't be caring too much about our 'appearance' and instead, for once, be selfish about our needs.

And you are right about the Communist party's stance on Arunachal Pradesh. That is an example of the poorest form of sycophancy, worse even than the Congress party's towards the Gandhi family. Blindly saying whatever China does is right, supporting them even if conflicts with our interests, this modus operandi of the CPs is sick. Cho is right.

Communism is a noble ideology, but these idiots have reduced it to a joke.

Perhaps the only use we have from the Communist Party is their strident opposition to price hikes. I mean, I know hikes are still happening; but atleast they are opposing them.

[Arjun]That scrapping POTA was a false step, is now being amply proved by the fact that the same United 'Progressive' Alliance Government which scrapped POTA, is contemplating a special anti-terror law with apparently similar provisions.

Yes, the only good thing that the left has done is to protest price hikes although they haven't done much about it.

c'est moi said...

Its time the Left left.

[Suhasini] Yes. Very true.
