Much of the last year the Indian political discussions were centered around the Indo-US nuclear deal , over which the Left withdrew support to the UPA Govenment . The basic argument then was that , even if the US government refuses to provide full civil nuclear cooperation we can fall back on Russia and France to do that .
I seriously doubted this argument as USA prime concern then was the profitability of the deal to US Nuclear industry . So it will never accept a position that is in disadvantage to the US .
Now the G8 ban has proved the sceptics right on the issue .
