US To Sell India Patriot Missiles

A big development in US-Indian relations.

Bill C:
Here is some info on the Patriot advanced capability-3 (PAC-3) missle. We will be giving/lending the Indians the PAC-2 missile which is, obviously, an older version. I have heard that the US was trying to get direct control over Pakistani Nuclear weapons and I am not sure if we have or not. I think this deployment is part of a larger strategy in the region. We know Pakistan is a tinderbox and only as reliable as Musharraf's heartbeat. Good relations with India would help us counter China as well. A US/Indian axis should work well because of our democratic and English cultural traditions.
