    Sorry, but I can't really be 'startled' by the revelation that Kissinger and Nixon were insensitive idiots and probably racists. Heck, even India's own citizens that post here were insinuating that India is becoming a US stooge by signing a mutual defense treaty. That just seems to be the language people use when discussing international politics - use as much hyperbole as you possibly can, and make it as insulting as you possibly can.
