Gideon Rachman, Financial Times | September 23, 2008
India and the US are celebrating their new nuclear deal this week. ++ Critics fear an unraveling of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. ++ Notwithstanding, India will be one of the great world powers and there is an unfortunate, yet undeniable link between power and nuclear weapons. ++ Although it may be hypocritical to permit India and sanction Iran, India is a status quo power and a settled and secular democracy; Iran is not. ++ If Bush thinks he is making a pro-American India, he is wrong, but he is still doing the right thing.
