    No wonder you don't post support links for what you think. What you think is even screwed up because you can't comprehend what others write.
    They are not part of the npt. read on and they are listed as a nuclear power.

    India is not a Party to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. India tested what it called a "peaceful nuclear explosive" in 1974 (which became known as "Smiling Buddha"). The test was the first test developed after the creation of the NPT, and created new questions about how civilian nuclear technology could be diverted secretly to weapons purposes (dual-use technology). India's secret development caused great concern and anger particularly from nations, such as Canada, that had supplied it nuclear reactors for peaceful and power generating needs. It appears to have been primarily motivated as a general deterrent, as well as an attempt to project India as a regional power. India later tested weaponized nuclear warheads in 1998 ("Operation Shakti"), including a thermonuclear device.[17] In July 2005, U.S. President George W. Bush and Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh announced plans to conclude an Indo-US civilian nuclear agreement.[18] This came to fruition through a series of steps that included India’s announced plan to separate its civil and military nuclear programs in March 2006,[19] the passage of the United States-India Peaceful Atomic Energy Cooperation Act by the U.S. Congress in December 2006, the conclusion of a U.S.-India nuclear cooperation agreement in July 2007,[20] approval by the IAEA of an India-specific safeguards agreement,[21] agreement by the Nuclear Suppliers Group to a waiver of export restrictions for India,[22] approval by the U.S. Congress[23] and culminating in the signature of U.S.-India agreement for civil nuclear cooperation[24] in October 2008.[25] The United States is bound by the Hyde Act with India and may cease all cooperation with India if India detonates a nuclear explosive device. The US had further said it is not its intention to assist India in the design, construction or operation of sensitive nuclear technologies through the transfer of dual-use items.[26] In establishing an exemption for India, the Nuclear Suppliers Group reserved the right to consult on any future issues which might trouble it.[27] As of September 2009, India was estimated to have had a stockpile of around 60-80 warheads.[3]

    OMG! I'll bet you are right. I'll bet Obama figures that what worked for President Clinton will work for him.

    I once gopt a spam call about a credit card from some indian woman and I was having a hard time understanding her and I believe she was having a hard time understanding me.

    Anyhow... she asked me if If I had trouble with english........ Now she may have been sincerely asking that to find out if I would be comfortable with another language or something....but it flew all over me.....

    I cussed that poor old girl using words that I dont know if she knew the definition....but Im sure she knew what I meant using them.

    If understanding us is trouble that you are having when we are trying to be in assistance of your questions, then perhaps we can be in assistance of your mis-understanding?
    It's a mechanical device, designed by humans, built by humans and operated by humans. What could possibly go wrong?

    I am all for selling the Indians american goods, the only sticking point to that idea....is we don't make anything (anymore) they want/need . (Except Military hardware) and grain.

    Saying that ...with of all the ****hole nations in that part of the world.. A partnership with India at least makes sense in a tactical kind of way.

    It would be easier to help create jobs and export to them if the republicans did not block a bill to stop giving businesses tax breaks for outsourcing American jobs.

    what the heck does America make that anyone wants?
    for that matter that anyone can afford?
    the only American job creation that I see coming from this visit would be a call center English tutor or supervisor.

    be honest, other than maybe our debt, what could this mean to America's job situation?
    The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and stamps EVER.
    Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals". Their stated reason for this policy "... the animals become dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."
