US employment

I have a bachelor's in engineering from India and an MS in Computer Science from the US.
I have worked as a Systems Analyst/Programmer both in India and the US. I was recently fired from my US job very badly citing professional incompetency only after 3 months.
1.If my remove my recent experience from my CV and say that I was unemployed for that period, I would be obstructing the truth.But I feel that hiding my firing incident would improve my chances of getting hired.Is this okay?
2. Also I'm currently working in a reputed software MNC in India-what are the chances of getting a perm/contract to perm position in the US thru telephonic interviews from India? I have a green card and do not require sponsorship.
Thanks in advance.

This seems like a post to instigate. I doubt the intentions behind the post.

If the current company do not checked your profile, then why you worry about the following companies?
Being fired is not the end of the world. There are 101 reasons to hire someone or not to hire someone. You have to work 100x harder than your peers from that incident on.
You may not have the opportunity to work for well reputation companies, so what? As long as someone like to hire you, you should be happy.
Should you/should not you list out your firing on CV is your choice, all companies that I know of screen it out anyway. Even the company currently hiring wants to get rid of you, it could invoke the offer was based on fall presumption clause. Who know eventually you may ends up working for the Mob.
