The concern over nuclear testing too is misconceived. We don’t need tests to make better bombs. We have a deterrent, which is all we need. We need to improve our delivery system. We need longer range missiles. For that we do not need nuclear tests. What we need is total nuclear disarmament. India is sitting on a time-bomb.
Non-proliferation has already been breached. Given present trends, a future nuclear terrorist strike seems inevitable. Among all nations, India has suffered the largest number of terrorist strikes. That makes it the likeliest target of a future terrorist nuclear strike. Only total nuclear disarmament can prevent that. Critics scoff at the idea. They consider it too utopian. Is it?
