And if the NPT doesn't matter anymore, who sets the standards for civil and military nuclear programmes?

Inking a deal with non-NPT signatory India legitimizes its nuclear programme that operates outside international guidelines. Condemning Iran at the same time makes the water pretty murky.

This deal is a direct result of India backing away from Iran under pressure from the US. I don't want Iran to have the bomb either, but this only encourages an "every country for itself" global view of nuclear standards.

This should be an interesting debate in congress.
