    Pedatzur writes: "The nuclear policy that the Bush administration continues to formulate, including plans for a preemptive nuclear strike against states that do not possess such weapons and the development of new nuclear weapons - is a recipe for disaster. It is a policy that blurs the line between conventional and nuclear war. This blurring could undermine the relative strategic stability that has set in since the Cold War." Undermine the strategic stability? Who is passing out weapons grade plutonium to the highest bidder? Not the US. Who's selling it to terrorist organizations and unstable nations? Not the US. Get real. How is the US to counter nuclear weapons in bin Laden's hands? Iran's? North Korea's? They certainly aren't going to give a fig for what the rest of the world thinks about what they do with their nuclear weapons. Can't you tell the difference between the US and North Korea? I'm relieved to see this change in US policy. It acknowledges a reality that you can't bring yourself to blame the real culprits for.
