this is the fundamental flaw of the 'nuclear deal': instead of being slave to OPEC, now you are slave to the likes of australia and canada who have uranium.
in general, australia is a lightweight in world affairs, even though it has a large territory. the fact that they push india around so much is evidence of the fact that india is still a non-entity, despite all the hoo-haa about growth.
i am sure there is something australia wants that india produces. if there isn't let's create something like that -- perhaps rare-earths? then hold them hostage just like the chinese recently held japan hostage.
kevin rudd is a known boot-licker of the chinese, so no chance he'll ever agree to sell uranium to india, unless some suitable pain is applied to his broad behind in other ways.
