This is a bunch of crock. Ok, first of, part of the argument made by the Marxists is right. There will be certain verifications that India will be subject to, by IAEA and the US Govt. pertaining to the civilian sites. But the Hyde rule clearly defines the boundaries primarily towards the civilian facilities. Check this
CPI-M monkeys condemn the relationship with US. What would they rather want? India to be a Chinese sidekick?
The reasons they give against this are hilarious, like "Thus
for example, US planes which bombed Iraq and killed thousands of
innocents can under this agreement expect India’s cooperation to refuel on India’s soil and go right back to bombing."
Whoa, what about the Iraqi terrorists who are killing their own country men in the millions?
Or for that matter Islamic terrorists in India who are killing people?
Of course CPI (Monkeys) will show a blind eye to it.
