Indian Government Receives Vote of Confidence

Manmohan Singh Vote of ConfidenceIndian state television, Doordarshan, is now reporting that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's government has received a vote of confidence by Parliament. The vote was close: 253 for, 232 against, with 2 abstentions. Had Singh's administration failed to receive the vote, early elections would have been called for this fall, likely scuttling the nuclear energy agreement made between the United States and India in March.

Hooray! Nuclear energy cooperation between India and the US is a good thing. Now if Iran would rid itself of the mad mullahs and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, then we could make the same deal with them. Well, the "peepul" deserve the government they get, and it looks like we'll get our just deserts in this November. Then the Obama Administration will scuttle the India-US agreement and make one with the mad mullahs instead. Boy, that makes sense!

Why are you fabricating Obama positions that he doesn't hold? How is that useful political dialog?
