    China's No. 1 target is the US, next is India: Bush

    MUMBAI - Former US president George W Bush on Tuesday delivered a blunt warning to Indians about the intentions of China. The former president who has courted trouble in the past with his aggressive and overthe-top assertions said China was looking to upstage India.

    "China's No. 1 target is the US, next is India," he told a group of select CEOs at a late dinner meet on Tuesday. Bush, the two-term president whose reign saw a dramatic improvement in Indo-US relations, also said his country's patience with Pakistan was wearing thin, according to one of the participants.

    "If the US had not befriended Pak, Pak would have become more dangerous. But now US patience is wearing off," he said. In the course of a free-wheeling discussion, Bush also touched upon a number of important topics. He cautioned businessmen never to do business with Russia and said the EU would have a completely different look in five years but the euro would stay.

    "If Iran goes after Israel, the US will go after Iran," Bush said, referring to the tense stand-off in the Middle-East over Iran's nuclear weapons programme. "While making history, timing is most important," he added. Those attending the dinner meet included HDFC Chairman Deepak Parekh and ICICI Bank Chairman KV Kamath.

    RPG promoter Harsh Goenka, GVK group promoter GVK Rao, Bajaj Auto chairman Rahul Bajaj and IIFL promoter Nirmal Jain were also present. "This event was kept a secret because the main condition from George W Bush's office was that there will be no announcements about this engagement and no media coverage given to it.

    Even the list of guests was kept secret," said a senior executive from ICICI Lombard. The visit was organised ICICI Lombard and Fairfax Financial Holdings, a Torontobased company that owns 26% of the Indian general insurance company, and was attended by their top officials from India and the US.

    kds1980 ji it is straight forward capitalism. Of course they will give a dollar to the enemy if the enemy indirectly helps them make twenty dollars at home.

    That is what big business has done. It is all about making money that you can catch at the end of the day. End justifies the means. :sippingcoffeemunda:

    Not very common people friendly, is it! I suppose the rich in India use different methods :sippingcoffeemunda:. NOT!

    Of course it is capitalism but again a capitalist have enough brain not to invest in enemy country .India and Pakistan have enough potential to do business with each other and several times they tried to do business with each other but every time they failed because of some political development.No indian company is interested in setting up plants in Pak and vice versa.American capitalists are world's most successful businessmen they know much more than what comes to common man through media.If they consider their investment safe in China it means they don't consider China a threat atleast for 20-30 years
