The article states very clearly that, at least in the minds of the parties involved, the nuclear weapons were to be used to deter other countries from attacking South Africa. Yes, South Africa's policy of apartheid was abhorrent. But every country's government has the right--and the obligation--to defend its citizens from foreign attacks. And there's no better way to protect your citizens from foreign attacks than to prevent them in the first place. Also, this was back in 1975, before South Africa's apartheid figured prominently in the public's conscience. South Africa back then had serious aspirations for joining the clique of Western powers--it wasn't yet a marginally better version of Mugabe's Zimbabwe.
