The ‘friendly atom” and its nuclear doomsday threat

the “new nuclear South” may be content with cheaper, quicker produced DU (Depleted Uranium) weapons, and of course the almost instant Dirty Bomb potential of large civil reactors in the national territories of their regional rivals and enemies.

The friendly atom can never be friendly

The Doomsday Threat Of The “Nuclear Renaissance” : The Market Oracle, 12 Aug 2010“………., the developing South is now the prime focus of nuclear industry hopes for ever bigger contracts.  In these countries, the civil-to-military route for developing nuclear weapons using supposedly civil-only nuclear technology has however already been resoundingly proven, up to 20 or 25 years ago by India and Pakistan, South Africa and the “special case” of Israel.

In the next decade, at least 12 – 15 “new nuclear” countries, and this total could grow to 18 or more, will have opened the civil-military option, and Pandora’s Box for their leaderships. More and more nations could take the known and proven civil-to-military route for building nuclear weapons, acquiring the political clout these weapons are supposed to confer, and equipping themselves with Doomsday Weapons in the event of military invasion by hostile powers.

As these leaderships know, the powerful and rich nations of the UN Security Council – the world’s earliest atomic weapons powers – owe their Security Council status in major part to nuclear weapons.

Outside the still costly and technologically demanding civil-to-military route to atomic weapons, the “new nuclear South” may be content with cheaper, quicker produced DU (Depleted Uranium) weapons, and of course the almost instant Dirty Bomb potential of large civil reactors in the national territories of their regional rivals and enemies.
