For those who thought this a serious deal, here is the first disagreement between the to be signatories of this deal. India will accept it. The US Congress will accept it. The US is where it always was. On the Indian side "it" will only add more confusion. More importantly, I do not think...

The likely damaging parts of this deal have been filtered out, such was the microscopic detail over language and placement of commas. The larger picture is that we got into an INTENSE dealmaking process with the americans, understood american dealmaking dhanda, and the US got an idea of what indian...

About how this thing started....here is one perspective... "With the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the chief opposition, it is more a matter of ownership problem. For it was the BJP-led NDA government that first initiated civil nuclear talks but had to give up after it was thrown out of power i...

The deal that JS proposed is vastly different than the one proposed in J18 to the UPA. And also the one in the Hyde Act is again vastly different than the one proposed in J18. Yes GoI did marshall its resources to support the Hyde Act but under the impression it was in conformity with the J18. All ...

Manav, Philip is 100% correct. You should try to read up on the RB occupants from the late 60s. You will get the names in chronological order. OK. Will do. Any suggested sources?

I don't understand what complaint you have about Bush's legacy. He left a stunning legacy of Iraq invasion. History will not read what we know of Iraq ops today. It will be written in colorful strategic imperative and a bold move. And yes, it will be a glorious victory of US (actually it is). They ...

Assuming that the US and India agree (whichever way it works out) and an agreement is signed, then how easy (or difficult) is it for either of the signatories to break out of the agreement?

I guess you folks are familiar with Ashley Tellis' "Atoms for War: US-India Civilian Nuclear Cooperation and India's Nuclear Arsenal" (2006). He makes a similar point, though from a different angle.
