kapidhwaja, san and others,
it looks like india has burnt its bridges and is on the way to a permanent nuclear second-class-hood. as to what we can do about it, i am not so sure. one possibility is to unilaterally abrogate the treaties at some future point, assuming someone will have the guts to do so. otherwise, it looks like we are basically screwed. the chinese and pakistanis must be celebrating. it's a mirror image of the way the americans seem to have imposed a deal on pakistan: "we'll control your nukes, but allow you to play all the terrorism games you want".
india gets a different deal: "we'll control your nukes, and we damn you with faint praise, nothing more; and oh, we'll send lots of evangelists to 'save' you, too. isn't that a good deal? see, sonia says it is, so it must be true."
