In order to achieve at least one of its foreign policy goals, the Bush administration insisted on the international approval of the nuclear deal with India. ++ The world can sell nuclear fuel to India; however, the action was ill-conceived. ++ The US did not get India’s word that it will stop producing bomb-making material. ++ Moreover, the US effort to pressure Iran to abandon its nuclear ambitions has lost credibility. ++ The next president needs to regain the moral authority to contain the world's growing nuclear appetites.
