Harmful Strategic Alliance

You have rightly said, “The masters of war will nevertheless keep the champagne chilled, for there is still a lot of money to be made in south Asia’s armaments trade” (EPW Editorial, “Masters of War”, 23 August 2014). The “strategic alliance” would not benefit India; it would only help the United States to expand its armaments industry and export war in the name of democracy.

The Indian government should be careful; if we want peace at home and around our borders, we need to stop this strategic alliance with the US and put an end to the arms race in south Asia. Any treaty to alleviate poverty and uplift our living standards is welcome, but definitely not such a strategic alliance that will only bring death and destruction.
