NON-PROLIFERATION IS FOR OUR ENEMIES, NOT OUR ALLIES:

US Congress Approves Bill to Implement US-India Nuclear Deal (Dan Robinson, 09 December 2006, VOA News)

Acting just before adjournment, the U.S. Congress approved legislation Saturday required to implement the U.S. - India civilian nuclear cooperation deal. The measure, which marks a major shift in U.S. nuclear policy, goes to the White House for President Bush's signature. VOA's Dan Robinson reports from Capitol Hill.

With critics still claiming the deal will strike a possibly fatal blow to the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT), supporters described the agreement as crucial to a new stage in U.S. - India cooperation.

"critics still claiming the deal will strike a possibly fatal blow to the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT)" As if Iran and North Korea are till bound by NPT. To the critics: wake up, those who are not developing nuclear weapons by now are either protected by us, or are not capable of doing so.
