Just when we thought the U.S. could not be more arrogant and bully-like, it goes and pulls a damn fool stunt like arresting an Indian diplomat for not paying her nanny enough. This is beyond the pale, and wholly contradicts the way we expect our diplomats abroad to be treated.
Our supposed diplomats do things like gun down two Pakistanis on the street in cold blood, and get to come home unscathed. An Indian woman tries to rescue her nanny from a life of subjugation, which she would face in India, and gets arrested, handcuffed, and strip-searched! Absolutely ridiculous!
Many years ago I read a book called "The Ugly American". It looks like the status of the U.S. remains unchanged from that era.
