    The Evolution of U.S.-Indian Ties: Missile Defense in an Emerging Strategic Relationship

    Missile defenses have come to reflect both an example of, and a means toward, the steady improvement in U.S.-Indian ties occurring in recent years. A deepening bilateral relationship has become part of New Delhi's larger solution to increasing India's capacity to defeat those threats requiring active defenses in the future.

    China, Burma, and Sudan: Convincing Argument

    China’s investments in Sudan and Burma have come under harsh criticism of late. Energy-hungry China will need to be convinced that bad governance in places like Burma or Sudan fosters instability that is bad for Chinese investment before it will rein in its rogue client states.

    The U.S.-India Deal: Can An Asian Nuclear Build Up Be Avoided?

    The debate over the nuclear deal negotiated by the Bush Administration and the government of India is too narrow. If other alternatives are not explored, there is a risk that Asia will experience a dangerous and costly build up of nuclear arsenals – a nuclear bubble much more dangerous than housing or stock market bubbles.

    U.S.-India Atomic Energy Cooperation: Strategic and Nonproliferation Implications

    • Op-Ed

    Dialogue Needs a Common Language

    Haqqani argues that it is clearly in India’s interest to help Pakistan gain sufficient confidence as a nation to overcome the need for conflict or regional rivalry for nation building. Simultaneously, it is important for Pakistani civil society to acknowledge that normal relations with India are the key to normalization of politics and policy in Pakistan as well.

    He Knows Best

    Pakistan’s fourth military ruler, General Pervez Musharraf, often makes statements that make eminent sense. Haqqani argues that he is, however, unwilling or unable to translate these rational sounding pronouncements into policy.

    Europe Watches from the Galleries

    • March 16, 2006

    Unlike the United States, European Union (EU) member states do not have an EU legal obstacle to surmount in order to renew nuclear trade with India. But before any EU nation embarks on trade, it will need the U.S. Congress to act.

    The Wind Blows Another Way at the Durand Line

    Haqqani recommends that an American-brokered accord between Pakistan and Afghanistan to end the latent dispute over the Durand Line, coupled with international guarantees to end Pakistan’s meddling in Afghanistan, might be the basis for durable peace and friendship between the two Muslim states.

    Oh Canada!

    U.S. President George Bush last week struck a deal with India that directly violates the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, or NPT, as well as several major U.S. laws, setting off waves of criticism in the states and around the world. Canadian officials have not been part of that criticism. Instead, the nation that helped India build its first nuclear weapon may now help India build dozens more.
