The standard argument of the proponents of the Indo-US nuclear treaty is ,"Small prototypes are under construction. But none of the prototypes is ready to be duplicated in a big way. Hence successive governments in India in last twenty years have been in a fix whether to ask for outside help or not. Waiting for the Indian technology to mature will take another 20 years. Lost time will seriously jeopardize country’s development. Hence, the present Prime Minister asked for US help." ( Hari Sud, ‘Making Sense out of Current Discord on Indo–US Nuclear Deal’ in indiacause.com )

This is incorrect. Since 1974 when the Western countries refused to help India to develop nuclear energy because of India's first explosion of nuclear weapon, The Soviet Union helped India to achieve complete self-sufficiency in every aspects of the nuclear energy program without any restrictions. Fast Breeder Reactors; Heavy Water Plants and Reprocessing plants are all given to India by the Soviet Union and Russia. There is no need for India to seek any technological help from the U. S as a result.

The reason India went to the U. S is the restrictions imposed by the U. S that no country among the 45 members of the Nuclear Suppliers Group could supply uranium to India. Even then about 6 months ago Russia has supplied fuel and is prepared to construct offshore nuclear power plants, which would be, off-limit to the I. S. G's restrictions. If India accepts Russian proposal there is no need for India to sign the Hyde Act and ruin India's nuclear weapons program.

It is not true that USA will help India regarding China. Nehru had tried to get nuclear protections from President Kennedy but was refused. USA is now against India's membership of the U. N Security Council and Indian nuclear weapons program. It is actively helping Pakistan by giving it massive amounts of weapons. It is helping China by giving massive amount of finance through imports from China. USA also does want India to take part in the International Space Program. USA has destroyed the credibility of the R&AW, the Indian spy networks by bribing the top officers of both R&AW and the Indian Navy. These are not acts of a true friend but of a friend of Indian's enemy Pakistan.

India would be a fool to sign the Indo-US nuclear treaty, which is designed to force India to sign in effect the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. After that India would have no defense even against Pakistan who has a number of missiles fitted with nuclear weapons made in China.

One would be a traitor to support the Indo-US nuclear treaty. Man Mohan Singh's credibility is under suspicions as Asoke Mitra; the former chief economic adviser to Indira Gandhi has recently written in his book that Man Mohan Singh was appointed by the USA. That is possibly the reason he is so much interested to give up India's nuclear weapons.

Alternatives are there. There are countries with natural uranium who are not members of the N. S. G. Russia is ready to construct off-shore nuclear power plants without any restrictions or on -shore nuclear power plants with standard restrictions that exists for all other plants. India does not need any technology from the U. S at all. If India will accept the treaty USA will be at liberty to dismantle in future India's nuclear plants to take back all equipments if India would ever dare to test its nuclear weapons. Without proper testing nuclear weapons would be useless, and India will not have any nuclear defense against either China or Pakistan. That is the real purpose of Indo-US treaty.

It is sad that Indians who live in USA refused to understand this so far and are supporting this evil treaty.
