Subject: For Olive etc:On the heels of the nuclear deal when will India learn?? Japan not too supportive
Herc the Merc    12/15/2006 1:24:09 PM Japan may not give any immediate commitment to support the Indo-US civil nuclear deal, a senior official said in Tokyo on Friday ahead of the talks between Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe. Japan will wait for negotiations between India and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to see New Delhi's ‘sincerity’ before firming up its position on the issue, he said. He noted that Japan, considering its relations with India, would trust New Delhi but domestically its national sentiments were very strong since it was the only country to have suffered due to nuclear weapons. Giving a sense of Japanese position on the issue which would be raised by Singh during his meeting with Abe, the official said it would be difficult to say "yes easily" and it would take a long time before Tokyo firms up its position on the issue.

that a Sino-Indo alliance is very very likely. U folks seem to dither at that thought preferring an alliance of democracies which I said was a fundamental flaw in ur thinking. Again Japan kicks India in the rear with a no for nuke power. Australia may follow suit--so where is this grand India Aussie Japan alliance coming in. How about the US agreement--it is like
giving up the countries sovreignity for electricity. What happens when u see the light that US Japan etc have no real serious plans for India barring the passing interests after 9/11 and software outsourcing. You see India's attempt to mould into NATO and the PAC Rim sphere is bound to fail. Who supports Indias UNSC seat--China, France & UK, and UK can be arm twisted by US to reject India. Bad foreign policy moves by India I think. Share ur views plz.

If this falls thru my prediction gets closer to materialize. Plainly the nuke deal is sh$t deal. Better for India to get UNSC seat.
