The risk is not that every country could have a bomb, but that terrorists could get bombs. A terrorist nuke set off in Times Square or DC would be a world-changing event. Rather than alienate nations by trying to stop them from acquiring weapons, we should be building a solid international community determined to deny nuclear weapons from terrorists.
    North Korea has them, and I would not call them responsible in the least.

    I say we strip every country in that region of any chance to posess such weapons until it has at least a few years of collective peace.
    That's irrelevant cause Israel has no nukes anyway.

    South Korea does not have them, because they have an alliance with the U.S., thus they have no need of them. North Korea has an alliance with China, thus they do not need them, unless for destabilizing the region.
