Nuclear Proliferation

Los Angeles Times reported The head of the U.N. nuclear agency warned Monday that as many as about 30 additional countries could soon have technology that would let them produce atomic weapons "in a very short time," joining the nine states known or suspected to have such arms.... Other countries considering nuclear programs in the near future are Egypt, Bangladesh, Ghana, Indonesia, Jordan, Namibia, Moldova, Nigeria, Poland, Thailand, Turkey, Vietnam and Yemen, U.N. officials say.

There are other countries that might go for it, but just consider some of these. What if several Islamic countries got the bomb. They might attack Israel, or they just might attack each other, and in either case, it would likely be the start of something that would end with the end of life on earth.
