President Bush rewards India with nuclear technology, slaps Pakistan and China

U.S., India reach agreement on nuclear deal -The Washington Times

Let me get this straight... India has always refused to sign the nuclear non-proliferation treaty, and so now we reward them for this by granting them increased access to American nuclear technology. And in exchange for what? This article doesn't really make this clear, but You can bet Your bottom dollar that the answer is measured in dollars.

Turning over nuclear technology to India is likely to destabilize an already unstable region. How will this be perceived by Pakistan and China? Not favorably, who will regard India as an increasing threat to their security.

And this deal is good for the U.S. because... we will gain increased access to Indian markets?

I don't think so. I want to know which companies are behind the lobbying that promoted this plan. The most obvious suspects are those who will directly sell nuclear equipment or know-how to India.

The United States is selling itself to foreign interests, piece by piece, and risking a destabilizing and accelerated nuclear arms race between adversarial nations in Asia.

I hope Congress has the sense to kill this plan.
