"A nuke deal where thorium based tech can be shared with the US would be nice."
Is that part of today's deal?
But it is very much on the cards. If Thorium can be processed into Plutonium in the first stage of the fast breeder reactor, then India'll have enough nuke fuel to last centuries. For eveybody. Short of nuclear fusion, this represents one of the best possibilities for clean nuke power.
If India makes a breakthrough here (and they're fairly advanced in that direction, there're 3 FBR prototypes in operation and a 4th in construction), we'll be watching ...heh, heh.
