India's relations with the US dropped to an all-time low, during Presient Nixons term. The US was trying to open-up with China & needed Pakistans help, which
had excellent relations with China. Richard Nixon supported Pakistan, because of animosity towards Indira Gandhi. Politics and Beyond: NIXON, INDIRA & INDIA.
Ironically, it was Nixon that authorized the fire-bombing of North Vietnam, (which was supported by Communist China) as he wanted to destroy the Communists.
Then as soon as the Vietnam war ended, he wanted to woo and cozy-up with China, during the cold-war with the Soviets. I could not understand his diplomacy.
This was the big blunder, I think that President Nixon made, that would have an adverse effect on the future-outcome of the United States of America & the
Democratic world, in terms of economic & military power ! The United States woke up a sleeping-giant & helped it get economically strong. God help the USA
