I recd my copy of the book last Friday and have already drawn the SSI's
attention to the map. They need to hear from others as well.

Pls ask your readers to direct their comments at the follwoing address:
Professor Douglas C. Lovelace, Jr.
US Army War College
122 Forbes Ave
Carlisle, PA 17013-5244

As for the book's editor, Henry Sokolski, the less said the better.  He
is an old, diehard non-proliferationist, staunchly anti-Iran in his
writings.Mr Henry Sokolski has been a major opposnent of the Indo-US


PS: BTW, from my recent discussions in New Delhi recently, India is
likely to walk away from the Indo-US nuclear deal because the Henry Hyde
Act is very different from the July 18, 2005 agreement and places legal
constraints on enrichment, reprocessing and N-testing. The Bush-Singh
agreement on civilian nuclear energy has now been transaformed into a
nonproliferation agreement.

Please see my earlier post under america's desired map of india: minus kashmir, arunachal, northeast.
One of the atrocious maps I had referred to in that post, http://www.insc.anl.gov/pwrmaps/map/pakistan.png, is on the web site of the International Nuclear Safety Center (INSC), which operates under the guidance of the Director of International Nuclear Safety and Cooperation (NN-30) in the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
Attn Rajeev: I am taking the liberty of resending a message I emailed to you more than a year ago (Saturday, 11 March, 2006 10:40; Subject: PoK in UN maps, Google. other maps). In than message, I had remarked: “... the Government of India, and in particular the Ministry of External Affairs seems to be doing nothing to get these wrong maps corrected. The educated elite of India, as also the Fourth Estate, seem to be equally unconcerned.”
