The well-armed militia, which is largely financed by Iran, is fighting alongside Assad's troops. While Shamir and Peres served the role of the hard-liner and peace-seeker respectively before the international community, both men and their governments presided over a legacy saturated with violence, illegal annexation of Palestinian land and settlement expansion. France maintains approximately 350 warheads, down from 540 in 1992. Weapons in space may seem like science fiction, but they've been creeping ever closer toward science fact.

Only two of the zones are currently used, which occupy an area of about 200 sq km. Their military never included fail-safes on their nuclear weapons, and kept them secured behind a bike lock. According to an NDTV report on the book, Dutt has quoted former national security advisor Brajesh Mishra as telling her in an interview: “Crossing the Line of Control (LoC) was not ruled out, nor was the use of nuclear weapons.” Dutt also writes that Indian Army had a ‘Six Day War’ contingency plan — deploying troops so that the boundary separating India and Pakistan could be crossed in less than a week, if necessary. “The (Indian) army chief was blunt with the PM: ‘If we can’t undo this in Kargil, I will have to attack somewhere else.’ He made it clear that a new war front could soon be opened in another part of the subcontinent — one that, by definition, involved crossing over,” the book reveals.

Although it has now developed centrifuge enrichment capability, India claims that all HEU is intended for naval propulsion. What the further spread of nuclear weapons will do to the world is therefore a compelling question. The detonation of a "dirty bomb" would not cause a nuclear explosion, nor would it release enough radiation to kill or injure a large number of people. The United States, with a prepon�derence of nuclear weapons and as many men in uniform as the West European states com�bined, may be able to protect them; they cannot protect her.

This invokes the conventional logic that analysts find so hard to forsake. S. senator saying this would result in “suicide” for North Korea, with Iran suspected of moving to build nuclear weapons, with the continuing spread of nuclear technology globally, the future looks precarious as to humankind and the atom.
