psr, when you think about it, weapons have always been sold by the ship-load to those country's you mention. Then as soon as we start talking nuclear everyone gets scared!
Take away the media & political one-upmanship and you'll find that we all just want to get on with our lives whether we be christian, muslim, buddhist, atheist or whatever.
Work with these people, help them, let them see you want to be their friends and the threats and fear will disappear. Why on earth shouldn't these country's be allowed to build their own nuclear power sources? They have their own burgeoning populations greedy for cheap, long lasting power.
At the end of the day who fears who the most? The west have thousands of nuclear warheads already and all we keep doing is "threatening" those country's who are trying to progress! All that helpful forgiving christian spirit seems to disappear when arab and nuclear are mentioned in the same sentence. I see a nuclear future, whether its a good one or a bad one is up to us and keep threatening to overthrow governments because they don't do things the way we want them to is not the way to go about it!
Only when I see the mushroom clouds rise will I admit I was wrong, until then we have to try and work together for a better future, thats what humanity is all about aint it?
