Threat to Nuclear Reactors is always there.. but to aquire it or not .. it is a process.. The way Liberalisation had started from West and then it went to Asia and now invading in Arab.. similarly, the Nuclear capabilities are the need of the present.. otherwise it will not be able cope-up with the World Society.

All the Government of the Worlds hold sufficient sanity to understand the disaster of Nuclear War.. so I presume this sanity will reamain.. Moreover, if there is any disaster to happen it can be done without War e.g. Fakushima.. So, if Saudi Arabia is doing it.. I presume other countries of Arab will also be equipped with Nuclear capability.. and we will hv restricted Invasion and War.

This will lead to Dejure World Order.

In view of the cost & non-availability of coal / Other fuels NUCLEAR REACTORS are the absolute must.
India can not afford to surrender for risk & political factors.

Saudi Arabia needs atom bombs to attack other Arab countries. It is now tired of begging USA to come to its rescue all the time.
