With its focus on China, the Obama administration loses sight of India's importance as a strategic partner in Asia. ++ The US' Asia policy "lacks a distinct strategic imprint." ++ Obama looks at India primarily in terms of India-Pakistan engagement even demanding that New Delhi "come to aid of terror-exporting Pakistan." ++ Asian geopolitical transitions are vital for international strategic challenges. ++ "America saves too little and borrows too much from China" and lacks appreciation for India.
