The U.S. tends to lose on every deal it makes with other countries.
This "deal" will be no different.
Thanks for your "wise" insights.
That would explain why the US only has twice the GNP of whichever country is number two.
This deal removes that stumbling block. It allows for International oversight of India's Nukes and allows India to buy state of the art technologies. It was a very smart move no matter how much the Perpetually Pissed Caucus trys to deride it.
Thats a rather cynical thing to say.
The US is the grandaddy of realpolitik (remember the Kissinger era?) and seldom makes deals if it doesn't stand to gain in some way. This deal can be a winner for both parties but it needs working, as usual.
Besides, cheer up. India is an anglophone nation and the english speaking nations have seldom let down uncle sam (OK< count out Canada during the Iraq war) when push came to shove. Now more than ever, India and the US are going to take the same path and I hope in time, a generation down the line, India will be as allied with us as the US and Aus. are now. China, Russia, France or Germany certainly wont.
