START I, START II, SORT (Moscow Treaty) America's nuclear deal with India From bad to worse Jul 20th 2006 From The Economist print edition America's Congress is preparing to say yes. Others should say no THE damage done by George Bush's proposed nuclear deal with India gets worse and worse.  Already weakened by the nuclear antics of Iran and North Korea, the web of treaties and  controls that seeks to halt the bomb's spread is starting to unravel.  Congress, hitherto a  staunch defender of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT)  and all it stands for, is poised  to allow America's laws to be amended to accommodate civilian nuclear trade with India, despite  that country's bomb-building. There will then be pressure on the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG)  to carve an India-shaped hole in its global nuclear export restrictions, and on the board of the  International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to agree to “India-specific” safeguards on any nuclear  materials or technology sold.
