Paul KerrIndia Miscellany

Following up on Jeffrey’s earlier post , the text of the US-India Nuclear Atrocity tabled in the Indian Parliament 7 March can be found here. This State Department fact sheet is also worth reading.

More items of interest:

*Wade Boese and Daryl Kimball wrote a rebuttal to this White House fact sheet about the deal. They obviously have strong stomachs.

*For those who think that India has always abided by its international agreements, check out these documents regarding US-India nuclear cooperation back in the day. Leonard Weiss spoke about them at an ACA event last month.

*This report from Carol Giacomo of Reuters has the Indian Embassy’s reaction to the ISIS report that Jeffrey wrote about on Friday.

*Dave Ruppe from GSN took a behind-the-scenes look at the deal’s origins last week.

Note: If both John Bolton and employees of the Arms Control Association think something’s a bad idea, you might want to rethink it.

    And apparently you are not aware of John Bolton’s latest views either. >:)

    As for the rebuttal from Boese-Kimball and “strong stomachs”, if you want to stay stuck on outdated and ineffective ideas, be my guest.

    1. What Boese-Kimball and others of their ilk do not realise is that India’s military programme has been a unwanted but necessary child even for Indians; but one that they will stand by irrespective of whether anyone else gets a bee in their bonnet over it.

    2. There is no evidence to suggest that the past sanctions or nuclear untouchability has any effect of even slowing down the military programme.

    In short, I wonder whether this is a case of “strong stomach” or “marble head”.
