Obama asks India not to curtail Internet freedom


Will Washington ever understand that this kind of unsolicited advice only irritates other nations without accomplishing anything?

Do they have any inkling of what is prompting the Indian government to alert internet abusers?

“Who the hell are you to tell us how we should manage our affairs? ” is what most Indians in India are asking, and rightly so.

When the U.S. is facing so many internal problems and is accused of so many terrible things beyond its borders, why should Obama or anybody in the administration poke their nose into other peoples’ problems, and preach to them about freedom and democracy?

Is it so difficult to understand this simple matter, and just mind one’s own business?

It is hard to imagine there are such simple-minded people in the State Department who have learned nothing from decades of irritated responses to their self-righteous pronouncements which no one takes seriously any more.

The world is laughing at the U.S. and Washington doesn’t seem to get it!

What a shame!
