Nuclear energy does not automatically translate to WMD. In many cases, it could mean sustainable development. American discourse has been populated by bobbing heads who have failed to address this alternative option. Understandably, Chernobyl and remnants of the Cold War have helped foster negative connotations associated with anything "nucular," but there are third- and second-world countries desperately trying to join the mythical ranks of the G7 high rollers to improve the well-being of their people. So I, personally (naively, idealistically, ignorantly), commend Canada's move to supply India with nuclear resources because wake up people! the 'N' word isn't synonymous with 'war'.
