I wish I could post some of the comments made by the politicians, Cronos. However, I am unable to find the necessary links (the stories are 7-8 years old after all).
However, the most vicious comments re: the nuclear tests came from Australia and New Zealand and they were quite intemperate.
That said, all that is in the past and it looks like India an dAustralia may normalize relations in the very near future.
Kudos to Pres. Bush for understanding India better than anybody else.
