The article We Are (Aren't) Safer With India in the Nuclear Club in New York Times discusses the recently signed Indo-US Nuclear Deal. Being an Indian, the initial reaction would be to disparage the article, but some of the points raised in article are worth pondering.
the deal could make the world more dangerous: Even if India is a responsible player, the deal could touch off a regional race to produce more bomb fuel. In that case, more of that fuel would be floating around Â perhaps to tempt terrorists.
On a more positive note:
India shows restraint and Mr. Bush's gamble pays off, other nations that defiantly built their own weapons may gradually be drawn back into a new club whose membership rules are still being written.
