I’m surprised the West hasn’t been trying to woo India for awhile. We could use a natural ally against China

Because india was disregarded and considered fully entrenched in the russian camp and hence the west were directly tried to undermine it until the last like 20 years

Hence it's multipolar world now. It's not just USA and Soviet Union. It's usa China Russia EU india and the African block se Asia all having their own moves. The big 3 will either have to woo or threaten the smaller blocks into their side. India so far has been sort of independent with Russia. But with china you bet sides have been choosen

Well for a while the US had to be pro-Pakistan tin exchange for their help with the Taliban and in Afghanistan. Those things aren't relevant anymore, so the US can be pro-India if needed.

If the taliban issue emerges in future west is going to back to their old tactics of shifting back to Pakistan? Isn’t it a lamé geopolitical tactic.

When was the Taliban an issue?

Everyday since 9/11.

But the Taliban wasn't part of 9/11. Sure they defended against the US invasion, but the invasion itself was meant to eradicate Alqaeda. The Taliban are still there! And Al-Qaeda are still fighting the Taliban LOL
