The Genie and the Bottle

Pakistan has built a 4th nuclear reactor. They probably got the money, the technology, and the fuel for it from China. This reactor is not for making electricity for the poor&starvin, it’s for making bomb grade uranium. Enough to make 8-10 weapons a year.

Pakistan says the weapons are for the border war with India. So we have a nuclear powered Islamic country building a new reactor to make small battlefield nukes, and we’re somehow sort of allies with them? Still giving them foreign aid? And if the Pakistani government goes like Egypt, who controls the weapons then?

In other news, it is being reported that Iran has it’s first reactor online.

I think the Iranians are clearly determined to have a nuclear program. And we have to assume that with a nuclear program they have the capability and the will to create a nuclear weapon.
