India to refuse to send troops to Iraq: "It is clear that all that Washington wants is to use the UN's involvement in Iraq as a fig leaf to persuade other countries to send their forces so that they may clear up the mess created by the Americans. This is a trap that India must avoid. It is obvious to all impartial observers of the Iraqi scene that the US forces are regarded as invaders. What is more, they are deeply unpopular because of their failure to restore the basic civic amenities like water and electricity and ensure security for the ordinary citizens. Any country which is seen, therefore, to be supportive of the Americans will also court unpopularity and become the target of attacks."
