The Vast Dark US Shadow Cast Over India & Iran’s Pursuit of Mutual Interests

 Following up on:

For those that doubt or dismiss US interest/interference in the Indian/Iranian relationship..
Pakistan serving as one means of 'stirring the pot' between the two nations. Keep in mind that a terror attack, from Pakistan, was also made into Iran just ahead of the Kashmir incident.
Pakistan has it's own reasons to go along with the US as well. Not the least of them being massive military funding.

Information on that attack :
That's correct there was a terrorist attack in Iran.
The very day of the Summit in Sochi. Message to Iran? You betcha!  
Delivered via Pakistan 
2-Iran calls for intensified security measures on Pak border
Algemeiner& Reuters  & Jundallah Iran
A militant Sunni Muslim group, Jaish al Adl (Army of Justice), which says it seeks greater rights and better living conditions for the ethnic minority Baluchis, has claimed responsibility for the attack, Iranian media have reported.
The assault, which wounded at least 13 people, took place in the province of Sistan-Baluchestan, which has a large, mainly Sunni Muslim, ethnic Baluchi community, which straddles the border with Pakistan.

At a recent event in New Delhi, Nikki Haley, US Ambassador to the United Nations, called Iran “the next North Korea” and urged India to rethink its relationship with the Islamic Republic. This was followed shortly afterwards by an American delegation, led by Assistant Secretary for Terrorist Financing Marshall Billingslea, who came to New Delhi and urged India to cut down on oil trade with Iran.

India’s policy towards Iran is facing a crucial test with US withdrawal from the nuclear deal and the expected new sanctions on the Islamic Republic.

The visit of the US delegation coincided with regular diplomatic consultations between India and Iran, which included discussion of efforts “to address issues that have arisen” after the US withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal, or, as it is officially known, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). Together, the visits can be seen in the background of impending US sanctions on Iran, set to take effect on 6 August.

This has ignited a debate about whether American pressure on India, and India’s continuing efforts to strengthen its relationship with the US, could potentially overshadow New Delhi’s policy towards Iran.

After 2001, India and Iran attempted to establish a strong partnership bolstered by political visits and the New Delhi Declaration signed in 2003 that set out a plan for a more engaged political and economic relationship. However, developments in Iran’s nuclear program and US attempts to censure Tehran under the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) regulations placed a significant constraint on Indian policy.

Fast forward to 2014, and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Look West Policy raised hopes for re-establishing India–Iran ties. This was formalised in 2015 through a trilateral agreement with Afghanistan to develop the Chabahar Port, which would give India access to Afghanistan by circumventing Pakistan and pave the way for robust economic arrangements between the three nations. The agreement was to offer connectivity and trade opportunities to India, and the ability to reach out to Central Asian states to secure India’s energy security and geopolitical position.
Interesting  to understand that Modi's "Look West Policy" would certainly raise the ire of the America and definitely result in media terminology being tossed around like "Hindu-fascist" in order to discredit the Indian leadership. 
The lifting of sanctions on Iran with the signing of the nuclear deal in 2015 offered a further boost to a sustainable economic partnership. There were reports that India’s exports amounted to $2.6 billion between April 2015 to February 2016, while imports doubled from the previous year, to $5.6 billion.

But India’s policy towards Iran is facing a crucial test once again with US withdrawal from the JCPOA...
Link: The Gadkari Effect on India-Iran Relations
‘Gadkari’s rings’ around the Chabahar Port in the remote province of Sistan-Baluchistan in southeastern Iran are phenomenally transforming the India-Iran relationship. The first definitive signs of this appeared in December when the quiet, intense discussions between New Delhi and Tehran under Gadkari’s watch resulted in the agreement over a new payment mechanism that dispenses with the use of American dollar in India-Iran economic transactions.  
Prime facie, it was a riposte to the use of sanctions (‘weaponization of dollar’) as a foreign policy tool to interfere in Iran’s oil trade with third countries such as India. (See my blog India sequesters Iran ties from US predatory strike.)
However, the 3-day visit to Delhi by the Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on January 7-9 highlighted that the application of the payment mechanism to the Indian-Iranian cooperation over Chabahar Port holds seamless potential to energize the economic partnership between the two countries across the board. In a historical sense, an opportunity is at hand to make the partnership, which has been ‘oil-centric’, a multi-vector ‘win-win’ relationship.
Hindu fascist or non subservient to the empire?
The meeting between Gadkari and Zarif in Delhi on Tuesday signaled that the two sides have a ‘big picture’ in mind. Thus, the opening of a branch of Bank Pasargad in Mumbai is a timely step. Pasargad is a major Iranian private bank offering retail, commercial and investment banking services, which provides services such as letters of credit, treasury, currency exchange, corporate loans syndication, financial advisory and electronic banking. (It is ranked 257th in the Banker magazine’s “1000 banks in the world”.) The Bank Pasargad is establishing presence in India just when the Chabahar Port has been ‘operationalized’ and a first shipment from Brazil carrying 72458 tons of corn cargo berthed at the port terminal on December 30.

Brookings: India's Pursuit of Strategic  and Economic Interests with Iran

India’s policy toward Iran is shaped largely by New Delhi’s aims of expanding its strategic influence beyond its neighborhood to become a global power. This relationship is governed by geopolitical and economic interests, which means for India access to energy, trade and regional connectivity. Iran is one of India’s main external energy sources. Delhi has sought to use its relations with Tehran to access markets and strengthen ties with Afghanistan and Central Asia, bypassing rival Pakistan.  This includes investing via Iran’s Chabahar port. Delhi has also sought to enhance its relations with Tehran to mitigate Chinese and Pakistani regional influence. The multifaceted relationship between the two powers is anchored within a long history of cultural ties.
I'm putting some additional information below:

CFR: US Pakistan Military Cooperation (2008)

Soon after Pakistan was founded in 1947, U.S. concerns about Soviet expansionism in the region and Pakistan’s desire for security assistance against a perceived threat from India prompted a military alliance between the two countries. Washington and Islamabad signed a mutual defense assistance agreement in 1954 and soon military aid started flowing into Pakistan

1979 brought the military and the intelligence agencies of the United States and Pakistan into a partnership. Along with Saudi Arabia, they worked covertly to support the Afghan resistance, the mujahadeen, against the Soviets throughout the 1980s.
Atoms for Peace?
Amid a bitter rivalry with India, Pakistan became a nuclear power after testing its first bombs in 1998.

Early Years

Pakistan began its nuclear efforts during the 1950s as an energy program. It was prompted in large part by the United States’ “Atoms for Peace” program, which sought to spread nuclear energy technology across the globe. In 1956, the Pakistani government created the Atomic Energy Commission (PAEC) to lead the new program. The United States gave Pakistan its first reactor—the five megawatt Pakistan Atomic Research Reactor (PARR-1)—in 1962.

During this early period, PAEC chairman Ishrat Usmani devoted government resources to training the next generation of Pakistani scientists. Usmani founded the Pakistan Institute of Nuclear Sciences and Technology (PINSTECH) in 1965 and sent hundreds of young Pakistani students to be trained abroad.
Finally, keeping in mind the Pakistani ties to Saudi Arabia AND 9/11.

UPDATE 4:05 pm

Speaking of 9/11? Check these links. Boy, oh boy do I remember 9/11.

Meanwhile, sources in the Middle East confirm that Atta and two other men wired more than $15,000 back to the United Arab Emirates just before the attacks -- what may have been leftover cash from the terrorism funds.
The money went to a man who flew out of Dubai for Karachi, Pakistan, on September 11 -- the day of the attack.
Atta sent $5,000, according to the sources. His Florida roommate, Marwan Al-shehhi, wired $5,400. A third man, Waleed Alshehri, sent slightly more than $5,200.
The FBI has listed all three as being aboard the two planes hijacked in Boston and flown into the World Trade Center. Atta and Al-shehhi are thought to have been the pilots on those two jetliners.
Officials in the United Arab Emirates have identified the recipient of those wire transfers as Mustapha Ahmad Al-Hawsawi. They are investigating whether he may have any ties to Al Qaeda, the terror network headed by bin Laden.
The transfers took place September 8 and 9 -- only a couple days before the hijackings.
Lots of reading at the above link

  1. I've added yet more information to the post regarding the connections between Pakistan/ISI and 9/11

    At the time of 9/11 I got very, very, very into doing 9/11 research.

    1. Another observation:

      There is a concept of Imran Khan presented on line that is not in touch with reality. Not even close.
      It's like the decades of Pakistani terrorist support is glossed over so Khan can be presented as a saint- it's bizarre because that man is corrupt- with his corrupt NGO, his bankster ties- being propped up by the Pakistani military which is inbred with the US/Israel military


      It's one I find eerily reminiscent of all the unjustified/unwarranted out of touch with reality Kurd's can do no wrong/ adoration.

      Very strange how people get so caught up in cult of personality type presentations.

  2. I do appreciate the info on the 911 attacks... But they are mostly heresay due to the attacks being a Mossad operation.

  3. Hey North:

    I've always seen 9/11 as a multi agency attack.

    Including Mossad. And the ISI which is interbred with CIA/Mossad.

    Clearly there was/had to have been cooperation within the American agencies...

    Without that cooperation Mossad alone could not have engaged in a such spectacularly successful attacks.

    1. Hi Penny.

      Mossad (& Co. e.g. ICTS) is the subcontractor - terror tool, so to speak - of the Western (Ashkenazi) Empire of slavery.

      Pakistan had next to nothing to do with that. On the contrary, as a traditional Muslim country it was the target of that false flag war on (traditional) Islam.

      It is India's racist, supremacist, US/NATO/'Israel' aligned, Hindutva regime, which, similar to the Hitler Project at the time, and like the latter on behalf of Western (Ashke-Nazi) fascism, is trying to destabilize China's BRI (CPEC).

  4. Laika:

    "Pakistan had next to nothing to do with that."

    Next to nothing is still something.

    Did you read none of the information contained in the post directly above?

    I can't pretend that tension between the US and India does not exist over their relationship with Iran.

    I cannot pretend that Pakistan doesn't provide a convenient proxy to attack India as well as Iran.

    "It is India's racist, supremacist, US/NATO/'Israel' aligned, Hindutva regime"

    Laika: Can you provide some information or context that demonstrates the point of view you are presenting?

    I would appreciate it a great deal and it could add to the discussion. But without context it just comes off as unsubstantiated accusations.

    1. I'll try to put something together Penny regarding India and thus pakistan. Terrorism seems to be the universal justification for aggressive provocative actions. It has been exploited in the most egregious fashion to justify illegal wars and attacks. Not that terrorism doesn't exist it surely does. India is a strategic partner of Israel and has a striking similarity with some of their Zionist counterparts. The most obvious and ashamedly overlooked is their massive brutal occupation of Kashmir. Very similiar to denying Palestinians their right to live decently and with dignity violating their basic norms of freedom. Their longest serving prime minister Nehru promised a solution to Kashmir but this has never materialised. 70 years of heartache for them people. This is the underlying anguish for Pakistan watching from their side of the LOC at the plight of their brethren and not being able to do much alone. Just like Russia is watching the suffering of it's brethren in Eastern Ukraine and having to tread carefully, and that is only a few years old. The situation is at it's worst under this nationalist hindutva regime who consider all of Kashmir as their own. They are unrepentant at the suffering of them people just like the Zionists they are close to regarding the Palestinians. The current regime have aspirations of a greater India (another similarity) and this means the destruction and subjugation of Pakistan. A minister from the current regime called for the break up of Pakistan into 4 pieces. Enabling separatist aspirations in blochistan, Sindhis from the south east. Pashtoons from pakhtunkwa. Hence, their involvement, in blochistan and Afghanistan. But it will backfire just like Bangladeshis are no longer in favour of India as they were previously since their independence, partly helped by an extremely violent and corrupt regime of Hasina which has ties to India. Israel is leading them towards these aspirations too. Why? Israel seeks to dominate the globe from Jerusalem in their twisted messianic ideology. They are the ones pulling the Strings in most major conflicts, including using USA to a final purpose of waging war on russia, believing that only by weakening greater powers can they realise their dark agenda. This is a topic in itself. What I'm illustrating here is when that great war commences (Christians call it Armageddon, but their are many variants) Pakistan will be a credible nuclear threat that they seek to elimate at that time or before. The want to denuclearise Pakistan obviously. And India is their arm to lead this agenda. Pakistan does not want war. It is the underdog and has quite a bit going for it, particular the flagship CPEC project in the OBOR dream of China.

  6. If you listen to the Two medias Pakistan wants reconciliation and does not desire war but they will not be bullied. Indian media doesn't even mention the word peace and reconciliation as though this is beneath them. I hope I am wrong. Like I said terrorism is effected in many forms. The west, Israel, India are just as guilty. But its always used against the Muslims and has become the casus belli for unwarranted aggression and the destruction of Muslim states. There are so called muslim groups tied with western intelligence agencies and this is a big problem especially for the Muslim's themselves. But those that exist and are deluded harm the muslims and non Muslim's and create discord in between. Totally not the divine Islamic way of life. Pakistan is massively traditional Islam even though radical elements have infiltrated through gulf financing. Then there are genuine reprisals as a result of tyranny and then there are false flags. The Mumbai attacks were Most likely a false flag right next to a chabad Lubavitcher centre. India uses this as their 9/11. You may be right about rogue elements within the ISI. It's more than possible. The pak military does receive US funding so you will get compromised individuals. Imran khan cannot be mistrusted as of yet. He is a patriot and strong leader. He won't allow Pakistan to be used like before. He is more in tune with the genuine military. I cannot say more than that. Some things i am wary of. But he has the potential perhaps to be a unifying force for the country, which can be for the good. I respect that he doesn't fall for the accusations of supporting terrorism attacks abroad. Like the recent Indian attack which i suspect was false flag/mossad. Nevertheless, you can't just say this is your fault we are coming to attack you without any evidence or presentation and on this pretext conduct preemptive strikes. Totally Zionist behaviour. He is sincere in not allowing such attacks destabilise his goals. He has a goal of developing a new Pakistan. Hence, his firm response. A war is really in neither countries interest at all. However, as stated, India is heavily allied with Israel and this is an extremely ominous relationship. There is much in common between the two. Both harbour a supremacist ideology and in India's Case the ruling powers who identify as Brahmins rule by right and look down on their lower castes who can justifiably be sacrificed as collateral. They were the ones who enacted the globalists agenda of de-monetising certain paper currency which massively affected the poor. The globalist agenda is to collapse all paper currency for an electronic currency which will be under their complete control headquartered in Israel. It doesn't look very promising I'm afraid to say. Though this particular standoff may be diffused. God willing.
