Diplomatic Immunity a nice cover for Elite Criminals
GOOD! Ms. Khobragade is now a diplomat. Curious as to how quickly she became a diplomat with absolute impunity.
Hypocrisy and plain old audacity in rare forms! Ms Khobragade already received an apology from this country for her CRIME. I gather, India would like our President to apologize for arresting someone who broke the law. Do all wealthy foreigners have diplomatic immunity? Is diplomatic immunity being abused by some countries like India? Based on prior reports, Ms Khobragade became a diplomat after her arrest.
As bad as this country is, I am glad it is not India where the words justice and human rights have very little meaning. I suggest those in India who are outraged should look in the mirror and look outside their windows, then become really outraged at the ubiquitous blatant injustices and human rights violations of their people at their hands 24/7.
“A new Indian government can start by first addressing the hostility of the American business community triggered by India’s policies. Renewing the confidence of the Wall Street and the Main Street about India’s economic prospects is key to regaining lost ground.
The US too must attend to India’s concerns, including the targeting of Indian IT companies by the US Congress in various immigration reform bills under consideration. It must also conclude a “totalization agreement” with India and stop pocketing $1bn annually in social security taxes from temporary Indian workers – a blatant American power play if there was any. The agreement would end double taxation on income of Indian professionals who pay US social security taxes but return to India without enjoying any benefits in return.”
The above is from the article in Al Jazeera (the link is above). The authors comments are priceless in its blatant DEMANDS of the US.
The US should attend to India’s concern, must make India rich with US tax payers’ dollars and absolute impunity from the LAW –even taxes— because in the upper caste, everyone is a diplomat and exempt from the law.
In my opinion, India feels it can bully us like they do those in the lower caste. Heck they may be putting President Obama in lower caste hence the demands. Unfortunately, this attitude of entitlement extends to other nations. These countries feel the US is obligated to spend money and lose lives to help their elites.
I am bothered by India because of the lack of respect for the LAW. And the attitude that the LAW does not apply in cases of corruption and cruelty. Apparently, diplomatic status is easily bought in India, explaining the ease in which those in the upper caste become diplomats. Diplomatic immunity was not meant to be a get out of jail card for elite foreign criminals.
