you've every right to "get it", the way you want to.
But the ongoing deal has three dimensions. It has
already been elaborated and explained. You've put
forward no argument, other than assertions, to refute
As regards the article is concerned, I evidently did
not deal with it in details, only pointed out the
fundamental fallacy. I believe that the comparison
with Pakistan is one of the clinching arguments.
The claim that through the deal "the US ends of up
controlling India's access to fuel supplies to it's
reactors" is of course just bunkum. Would you care to
Rather through the deal, India will have access to
fuel supply which it is denied at the moment.
The deal is being opposed on three different counts.
Already explained in details. We are sorry that we are

It's a policy or

them and then act
accordingly. If you are serious about the threat they

anyone on the
