Gee whiz. Tough call. Considering America’s economic and racial injustices during the 60’s are we in a position to criticize them? Russia (and the former entity known as the Soviet Union) are perpetrators of horrible atrocities and do not take human rights seriously yet no one “questions” they’re role in space. India absolutely should focus on human rights, building infrastructure, providing nutritious food, clean drinking water, good jobs, etc etc for it’s people, but it also has “as much a historical right” as the previous great powers to do what it sees fit with it’s own money.
But hey, you might disagree. And I welcome that criticism.
