The Future of Non-Proliferation

Hosted by

Although the US has no intention of attacking North Korea, President Bush reiterated today that the US won't tolerate that country's nuclear weapon. The President emphasized diplomacy in the aftermath of Korea's nuclear test this weekend, adding that Japan, South Korea, China and Russia all have agreed that multi-national diplomacy is the way to go. With Iran allegedly on its way to building a bomb, what's happened to the international non-proliferation regime? Why have some countries turned away from nuclear weapons while others go full-speed ahead?  Is aid with nuclear power an invitation to building a bomb?
