Well, well, well.
Isn’t this just perfect?
This is exactly what the US did to Saudi Arabia, which triggered a series of events that led to them basically abandoning the West as an ally.
This is exactly what I wanted to happen with India, who has been fence-riding for too long.
Obviously, it’s irrelevant whether or not they did this. The US assassinates people all the time, often openly in public. It’s just something that any state has to do from time to time. That’s life.
Canadian national security agencies are investigating “credible allegations” that “agents of the government of India” were involved in the death of a Canadian Sikh leader in June, Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Monday.
Trudeau said that steps are being taken to hold the people accountable behind the death of prominent Sikh leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar in British Columbia.
“Canada is a rule of law country, the protection of our citizens in [defense] of our sovereignty are fundamental,” Trudeau said in a statement addressing the House of Commons. “Our top priorities have therefore been one, that our law enforcement and security agencies ensure the continued safety of all Canadians.”
Melany Joly, Canada’s foreign affairs minister, announced the country will oust a “key Indian diplomat” and anticipated India to “fully collaborate” with Canada to get answers, according to CTV News.
Nijjar was killed on June 18 near a Sikh cultural center in Surrey, British Columbia, according to The Associated Press.
He advocated for the creation of Khalistan, an independent Sikh homeland in India’s Punjab region, according to CTV News.
Sikhs in Canada protested over Nijjar’s death, accusing the Indian government of being behind the slaying, according to CTV News.
Early Tuesday morning from New Dehli, the Indian government released a statement saying they “reject” the statement from Trudeau.
“Allegations of Government of India’s involvement in any act of violence in Canada are absurd and motivated,” the statement read. “Similar allegations were made by the Canadian Prime Minister to our Prime Minister, and were completely rejected. We are a democratic polity with a strong commitment to rule of law.”
Trudeau told the House of Commons he brought his concerns directly to India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi at last week’s G-20 summit in New Delhi.
“Any involvement of a foreign government in the killing of a Canadian citizen on Canadian soil is an unacceptable violation of our sovereignty,” Trudeau said.
Canadian Trade Minister Mary Ng said Friday she’s postponing a trade mission to India that was scheduled for October, after tensions between the two countries escalated after Modi reprimanded Trudeau during the G-20 summit, according to Reuters.
Yeah, this is going to spin out into a whole thing. When they start expelling diplomats and canceling trade missions… it’s already pretty much over.
Brandon is no doubt going to get on board very soon.
India and Modi will be under constant assault, and they will have no choice but to go all-in with the Chinese.
After all, the Chinese might be their ancient blood enemy, but the Chinese aren’t showing up to give them moral lectures and making all of these faggy demands.
India is on a majorly impressive trajectory economically, especially considering that the elite of that country are carrying hundreds of millions of people who are basically dead weight in the modern world. They don’t need this crap with Uncle Sam (or Uncle Moose, I guess presently) trying to sabotage their national agenda.
China is going to swoop in with an offer of Sino-Friendship, and that will be that.
I have no idea why the West keeps sabotaging their own alliances. Typically, if one of your allies assassinates someone (or if you think that happened – we should note that nothing has been proved), you downplay it and blame it on extremists. But we now have the “Prince Salman” precedent, where instead of downplaying it, you make a huge global moral lecturing scene – without ever explaining how this is different from the assassinations that the US constantly carries out.
This is very, very good for people who are against the Anal Empire. Modi is not going to tolerate being morally condemned.
I don’t write much about him, but he’s a pretty cool guy. I mean, whatever, I don’t care that much about India, but he’s India first, and that means he’s not going to be prone to supporting the Anal Empire, which demands that every country it is aligned with make huge national sacrifices for the benefit of the United States.
Case in point – look at Germany, which has been bullied into collapsing their economy, deindustrializing, so they can support the US’ anti-Russia and anti-China agendas. I wrote about this the other day – The Economist was lecturing Chancellor Stolz about his bad economy, and he was like “well, our economy is bad because we’re supporting the Ukraine war and cutting trade with China” – of course, he didn’t say “i.e., because we’re following the orders of the United States,” but everyone gets it.
Modi isn’t going to do that sort of thing, which is why he’s totally refused to engage with the US anti-Russian sanctions program. He’s also not going to stand for being morality lectured over an assassination of some whiny homo that he may or may not even have had anything to do with.
