    34 warships sent from US for Obama visit

    President Barack Obama lands in Mumbai on Saturday. Communications set-up, nuclear button, a fleet of limousines and majority of the White House staff will be in India accompanying the President on this three-day visit that will cover Mumbai and Delhi.

    He will also be protected by a fleet of 34 warships, including an aircraft carrier, which will patrol the sea lanes off the Mumbai coast during his two-day stay there beginning Saturday. The measure has been taken as Mumbai attack in 2008 took place from the sea.

    Arrangements have been put in place for emergency evacuation, if needed.

    But, but....I thought these were our friends? I wonder what the cost of this apology tour will cost the American people?

    They are, but they also border Pakistan.

    Fundamentally dishonest statement. Apology tour... almost makes me chuckle as much as the whole Black Liberation Theology thing.

    To tap into Indias economic growth is an important step in securing a good chunk of America's economic power.

    However, India remains volatile, there have been many high level terrorist attacks there. Let us not forget the Mumbai attacks.

    I guess I'd say, why the fleet of Limousines? But anywho.

    Onward partisan soldiers....

    This must be the trip someone in another thread called the $2 billion dollard trip. Assuming the estimates I've seen online are correct, 200million a day for the PResident to get some curry seems a tiny bit, well, excessive, considering the current state of the economy.

    Translation: Go there hat in hand to beg for India to start lending America more money since the Chinese are backing off....

    I can see it now.......Obama: "People of India, America sucks, America has always sucked, and we are sorry. Can we have some money now please?"

    Blind partisanship at its best.

    So where were you when Bush was begging for money from China?

    Oh yeah, you were at Whistlestopper defending every single thing he did. I have a good memory still.

    Yep, I was asleep then. I am awake now....So if it is all about me not railing on Bush for this, why then now are you giving Obama a pass for it? Hmmmm...A mirror is in order.

    Funny you woke up when a Democrat was president. You must have a really ****ty alarm. That's what? 8 years sleeping? That's almost a decade. I guess saying you were asleep is better than admitting you are a partisan hack.

    I believe the white house has said those numbers over grossly over exaggerated. I can't tell you exactly what the cost is of course, just that the white house denies those numbers...
