“Will Japan go nuclear?” no FP – Passport
If you were the prime minister of Japan, what would be on your mind right now, given that North Korea had just tested a nuclear device that reportedly had the explosive power of the bomb dropped on Nagasaki?
My guess is you’d be looking into the possibility of Japan’s becoming a nuclear power as soon as possible. Already, North Korea’s ballistic missile tests had been unsettling folks in Tokyo. Hawks in the ruling Liberal Democratic Party have been questioning Japan’s pacifistic constitution for years, and they are proposing that the Japanese military be allowed to launch pre-emptive strikes against North Korea

No Médio Oriente, a lógica da dissuasão resultará na proliferação dos arsenais nucleares: governantes de países árabes sunitas como o Egipto ou a Arábia Saudita não vão ficar sentados em cima dos polegares enquanto o Irão xiita traça a sua esfera de influência alargada – vão procurar obter rapidamente o seu “seguro nuclear”.
