Free Nukes and everyone gets laid!

Looks like President Bush just inked a deal to share nuclear technology with India.
(Washington Post reports)--NEW DELHI, March 2 -- President Bush and Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh struck what both leaders called an historic agreement Thursday to provide U.S. nuclear power assistance to India in exchange for new inspections of India's civilian nuclear facilities. The agreement, which requires congressional action, is a major break with prior U.S. policy, which barred nuclear assistance to nations, like India, that have refused to sign the 1968 Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
Not sure what kind of message the Bush Administration is sending to the "Axis-of-evil" by exporting American nuclear technology to India, but I suspect it will not be a constructive one. Ahhhh, the mind reels.

I am outraged! Bush has lied to us time and time again, and now this!? How can the US continue to object Iran's nuclear program? Why aren't more people speaking up and expressing their anger over this?

India and the U.S. are currently governed with a "Dr. Strangelove" mentality. The governing ruling party in India may be even more reactionary than the Republicans - and that's hard to do.
