American Double Standards

The Indian-American nuclear deal, which was announced with great fanfare, seems to be mired in the quicksand of America’s double standards.

A draft agreement provided recently by the US to India states that nuclear cooperation would be discontinued if India were to conduct a nuclear test, which India has out rightly rejected and rightly so.

How does it expect India to accept this draft agreement and sign the CTBT when the US senate itself has failed to ratify it?

Isn’t this typical American double-speak? Their policy is to enforce laws, regulations and treaties on other countries, but these don’t apply to them. For them all this is so much balderdash. The king can do no wrong, so why should they sign on the dotted lines of such treaties and regulations?

Why hasn’t the US ratified the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty?
But it expects all others to do so?
Long live American double standards!

We have test ban treaties, well with what was the former soviet union. We dont conduct atmospheric tests. we do underground tests and we havent had a nuclear test since 1992. When president BUSH SR. put a halt to them.

Thats right! bush is not satan!

I thought leaders are supposed to lead from the front and set an example. But what do we have hear? Bad examples by the US of A!!

And that reminds me of a song, the first line goes..
