brahma as usual is on the money. this is not exactly a great deal for india.
in a display of escalating commitment, india is now willing to give more and more to make the deal work, forgetting the original reason for getting into the deal. it shows utter lack of preparation. india's negotiators have been shown to be babes-in-the-woods taken for a ride by americans!
and the americans cannot negotiate their way out of a paper bag with most others because of their ignorance. this would imply india's diplomats and politicians are dumb, untrained and probably also purchased with small amounts of money, mitrokhin-style.
fortunately, the us congress will not ratify this thing. that much is guaranteed.
the trick is for india to not do too many things and give up its leverage hoping some manna will fall into its lap. it won't.
