A Nuclear India?
With over a billion people, India represents the world's largest democracy. Now, President Bush is on his way to make a nuclear deal with this growing power.
's rapid growth has been feared by many Americans while supported by others. India 's upper and middle classes have seen the benefits of last year's 30% growth in India imports. The nuclear agreement will help to reduce U.S. 's dependence on oil while supplying the additional energy needs necessary for economic growth. Although India has agreed to separate nuclear energy work from nuclear weapons programs, some are still skeptical of the deal. With a predominantly Muslim population, concerned Americans want to make sure that nuclear weapons don't get into the hands of terrorists.
