A Week For The History Books

Welcome to the nuclear club
US to allies: Don't make a fuss of Indo-US ties
IAEA's ElBaradei hails US-India accord on N-energy

Saudi ambassador to US Bandar bin Sultan resigns

China Severs Its Currency's Peg to Dollar

I'd have thought you would be more responsible than put words in the Economist's mouth. Coming, as it does, on the heels of excellent pieces on Indian foreign policy goals, terrorism, jihad, and reformation of muslims/islam.

I was surprised to see the "Welcome to the nuclear club" tagline. Hurried to have a look, but all it says is "Together at last".

Oh, come on. Economist changed their lead after we linked to them. See cached version here:

Give us a little credit for integrity, won't you?

Best regards.

I did give you some credit, which was why I said "I'd have thought you would be more responsible than put words in the Economist's mouth"

Anyway, the link you put up dint show it, maybe you were referring to this one instead?

Anyway, considering that the economist is saying it, it should mean something. (dont mean to give the economist any undue importance, i just consider it to be something that's consistently unfair - to India)
