Exposing further the fragility of the "civilian nuclear deal", the newly elected Australian Labour party regime has reneged on it's predecessor government's
understanding with the UPA's deal pushers on the specious excuse that India is not a signatory to the NPT. Improbable as that may sound, this is a good development in that it demonstrates in bold relief the inevitable blackmail that India will be subjected to by the Yanks - if and when the "deal" with them is consummated. Yet, Kris Subrahmanyam and Shyam Saran insist everything is just swell, i.e. they will not rest until the Indian deterrent is crucified by the weight of increasingly onerous commitments while the "suppliers" back out from their end of the "bargain", one by one, having achieved the emasculation of India.
