Hillary Clinton's visit to India 2012

There is joke circulating through texts in Pakistan. 'A women who didn't know Monica was in her bed but knows Al Zawahiri is in Pakistan'. Ms  Clinton did everything she could to please India but could only ignite Indian ire.“She's overplaying her hand on Iran,” said Kanwal Sibal, former Indian foreign secretary. “Knowing the complexities in India and the political sensitivities involved, for her to publicly pressure India to reduce its oil purchases from Iran, I don't think it sits well with the larger political establishment in New Delhi. I don't think she's winning any arguments in favor of her case. On the contrary, she's causing a degree of resentment.”
From the outset, Clinton's visit was awkwardly timed. Apparently designed to encourage India to further reduce its oil imports from Iran, in compliance with US sanctions, it coincided with the visit of a trade delegation from Tehran.
However, Indian people are not with their government on Iran. How many times Iran had attacked a country in past compared with Israel. In Pakistan people are more furious that why Saudi Arabia is supporting and fueling bloodshed in Syria? 
This lady has little to convince Pakistanis after all every month scores of innocent people are killed in Pakistan through drone attacks. We are also facing bomb blasts only because of wrong US policies over the region.
India is not like Pakistan where dictators sell out the country in return for stay in power! India is asking for cash in terms of visible change on the model of Japan.
The worst part of the tour was that Clinton remained silent over increasing nuclear piles in India. Indias ever growing and dangerous posture is a matter of concern for all the countries in the region.
