In concluding its nuclear deal with India, the Bush administration faces significant opposition in Congress and tough questions from its allies on whether the arrangement could set a precedent encouraging the spread of nuclear weapons to Iran and other potential foes of the United States.
In defense.......... "The comparison between India and Iran is just ludicrous," R. Nicholas Burns, the under secretary of state for political affairs, said Thursday in a telephone interview. "India is a highly democratic, peaceful, stable state that has not proliferated nuclear weapons. Iran is an autocratic state mistrusted by nearly all countries and that has violated its international commitments."
I am not much of a supporter of anything to do with Death, but at the same time I am glad that US is opening up its door to its Defense Treasure Trove.
The best case scenario would have been where Nobody had any weapons of Death but since it is unlikely that, such a case would ever happen in the near future, and since the government will continue to buy arms, we better be buying the best and have access to the best technology.
And we are building Nuclear capability anyway.
By the way, will the enriched fuel go back to the USA, after we have used the Nuclear generated Power?
And that "open to inspection" is open to all Nuclear Facility or only where there have been Assistance?
But of course, I want to live in a world where there are no weapons of Assault. But as long as somebody else is walking around with one, I better keep mine too well oiled and cocked.
