At the moment, India has nuclear weapons. Too late to stop it, as with Israel and Pakistan. This agreement with India is not so bad an idea. Good relations with India are surely in the USA's interests. Democracies are less likely to threaten use of nuclear weapons than crazy dictators or totalitarian regimes. Pressure on China as an emerging superpower makes some sense. Who knows what Chinese policy and aspirations will be in the coming decades. Here is an effective counter to Chinese ambitions. One can reasonably hope that China Russia France Israel India will remain compus mentus regards their nuclear arsenals. Not so with Korea and Iran, or even Pakistan (OK with Musharaf for time being). So what is so crazy about getting India, (not God) onside? Iran can act under any pretence it chooses. However it will soon understand that the security council sees things differently. And it is surely under no illusion that the nuclear "club" will not tolerate a nuclear Iran. Stopping Iran gaining the weapon is in the US interests, as is stopping N.Korea from getting the weaponry. Helping India does not excuse Iran, (Iran doesnt decide the rules) but it does help the US where China is concerned and tempers Pakistan at the same time. It is quite logical if America wishes to remain the pre- eminent superpower for as long as is possible.
