is this fallout from the iran affair, a crumb being thrown india's way via the yanks?
iran is apparently pissed at india, or so claims the bbc (which of course is run by pakistanis, so it's hard to take them at face value). as i have been asking, what exactly has iran done for india lately? offered to sell gas? cajoled india to agree to that stupid pipeline through pakistan?
despite mani shankar aiyar's desperate oil and gas deals, i dont think india really needs to panic and give into blackmail. india's ties with iran are based on long-term interests in containing the pak murderers, the isi-taliban. a small hiccup here and there doesn't matter.
