Re: Devyani Khobragade incident: What's your take?

Someone on TV mentioned Raymond Davis ji and alluded to Uncle Sam's imperialistic overreach and double standards. This was the man who murdered a couple of Pakistanis. He should have served a jail term for murder or manslaughter or whatever. But the US got him out, using any and all means. US didn't want him to serve out his jail term.

Those lofty thoughts about upholding the rule of law, as US diplomats like to preach to everyone else, were put in abeyance.

Anyway, international diplomacy ... at least part of it is a jungle law based on might is right.
