    What’s so great about non-porliferation? Now that the MacDoanald’s rule has been breached, it is still true that no nuclear powers have ever gone to war with eachother. Whereas one formerly nuclear power or and one nuclear aspirant have been attacked by nuclear powers. Seems the only way to be safe from attack by a nuclear power is to be a nuclear power.

    It is worth noting that India who started its nuclear from the beginning in the name of civil technology haven’t fulfilled the desire of poor peoples in India. but the other way around it initiated arms race at large in the region creating instability. Ignoring the peoples situation inside the country where uranium mining is carried on and huge radioactivity is found still bent on increasing its uranium without any proper safe mechanism. The international nuclear regulatory body must address this issue unless the outcome of this would be really disastrous.

    It is simply not acceptable at this point for Australia to sell uranium to India. Until there is credible and indisputable evidence that India’s nuclear regulator is able to act independently and meets world’s best practices, and that the regulator is vitally committed to staying that way, not a single load of uranium should leave Australia’s shores for India.
