Indian nukes

Sunday, December 13, 2009

The news that someone deliberately caused a leak in an Indian nuclear plant and diverted tritium into a water cooler is most disturbing. It should be remembered that a fundamentalist regime in India started the nuclear race in the subcontinent. Now it is evident that India, with its 836 million desperately poor people living on only forty cents a day, is at risk of having its nuclear arsenal being taken over by Naxalites and other terrorists. Something needs to be done urgently to save India's weapons of mass destruction from being misused.
