CPI blames US for N.Korea nuclear tests

Korean nuclear test unfortunate, says CPI (M)

We heard it all in an earlier editorial on this topic by CBCNN.

CPI-M held the U.S. "singularly responsible" for N.Korea's nuclear tests.

"After declaring itself a nuclear weapons state, India's stand that other countries should not acquire nuclear weapons does not carry much conviction. Likewise, if Israel can stockpile 200-plus nuclear weapons, how can India argue against Iran exercising its legitimate right as the signatory of the NPT to conduct uranium enrichment?"
North Korean case different from India's, says Tony Blair because India is strong on counter-proliferation. But CPI(M), and CBCNN, choose not to see the distinction.
