Indo-US nuclear deal: the opposing view

"It is a sobering read (the Indo-US 123 Nuclear Agreement) and tells us much about the administration's thinking. In summary, there isn't much of a deal here at all, India gets what it wants. The agreement not only fails to seek any constraints on India's nuclear weapons program, it goes out of its way to make clear that what goes on in the nuclear weapons program is off the table and not to affect at all the agreement's execution."

writes Ivan Oelrich, the Vice-President for Strategic Security Project at the Federation of American Scientists. Anyone who thinks that India got the short end of the stick in the Indo-US nuclear deal should read his comment in detail here.
