47. If you have buyers, you have sellers
Edited on Fri May-04-07 01:19 PM by DrDebug
The fact remains that many countries have nuclear aspirations, so there is a market. If there is a market, there are a sellers.

The SALT agreement has its root in the Cuban Missile Crisis when it became obvious that a faction of the military in both the United States and the USSR wanted a nuclear war. The main reason why it didn't happen is because President John F. Kennedy and Premier Khrushchev did not want to be responsible for a nuclear war. We know what happened to JFK and also Khrushchev was removed from office by his colleagues the next year. China even called Khrushchev a wimp. So even though that lunatic fringe just consists of a small number of people, they are extremely powerful.

What we see is that many nations want nuclear weapons and they either get it directly or indirectly. And once you have nuclear weapons then nobody is going to mess with you as best demonstrated by North Korea whose leader is a megalomanic who is very capable of destroying what ever is still left of his nation. There is always a group willing to sell and you can get it indirectly if you have enough money and dedication.


The two men who prevented a nuclear war. Regardless of their flaws, that achievement deserves praises, however the exact opposite happened.

Stanislav Petrov, the man who turned off the Russian computers who were about to retaliate against an attack which never happened. Stanislev prevented a nuclear attack on September 26, 1983. He got demoted.
