  1. Well their goes another ally out the door! My guess is Dictator Imam Obama will manage to alienate and piss off the Indian PM in under 30 minutes rather than “several hours”.

    What an evil buffoon.

      1. I feel sorry for our Indian allies…

        (being stuck with Obama for several hours; Can Obama even find India on a map? Does he understand India’s current national security strategy? etc.)

  2. Climate change! That’s the reason for Modi’s visit with Obummer today:

    India’s Prime Minister Modi joins Obama in climate

    Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi pledged on Tuesday to try to ratify the Paris climate change pact this year, a big boost for President Barack Obama’s effort to bring the agreement into effect before he leaves office.

    The deal struck in Paris in December requires countries to take action to reduce the greenhouse gases that warm the planet, but Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has vowed to “cancel” the agreement if he is elected.

    Modi’s promise to work with his Cabinet to greenlight the climate agreement greatly increases the likelihood that the deal will reach the threshold required to enter into force this year, which would make it more difficult for a future U.S. administration to formally renege on its participation.

    In a statement issued following a meeting between Modi and Obama at the White House, the U.S. underscored its promise to formally ratify the agreement “as soon as possible this year.” India echoed that commitment, saying it “similarly has begun its processes to work toward this shared objective.”

    While the language gives India some wiggle room to delay ratification, it is the clearest indication so far that India, the planet’s third-largest greenhouse gas emitter, backs the global push for the deal to take effect quickly.

    The agreement includes provisions that make it difficult for the United States to immediately pull out of the deal after it goes into effect. But those measures likely wouldn’t stop Trump from ignoring the agreement altogether and trying to unravel Obama’s climate regulations, which form the basis of the United States’ pledge to cut emissions 26 percent to 28 percent below 2005 levels by 2025.

    Hillary Clinton, for her part, has said she would continue implementing the agreement.
