India in for the MDS?

India might want to be part of the missile defense shield:

Australia and India said yesterday they would join the Bush administration in developing a missile defense, adding to a growing coalition of nations willing to fund, research and possibly deploy a shield against rockets fired by terrorists and rogue states.

[...]

In New Delhi, Indian Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee announced an agreement with the United States this week that would give India access to previously off-limits technology, including nuclear, space-related and other high technologies.

The agreement, which President Bush also announced at the Summit of the Americas in Monterrey, Mexico, included a provision to expand dialogue with India on missile defense.

The announcements follow recent decisions by Canada and Japan to participate in U.S. efforts to develop a working missile shield.

Remember when it was thought that this radical US program would start a huge arms race and threaten international security?
