Huon, thank you for moderating! We need to keep the area interesting to casual guests, and welcoming should they contribute. To that end, I believe that short posts apropos a single issue at a time are easier to browse, understand and can even support a little banter.

I have to agree with CyrilR on one point. As technical people, we should leave expert policing to expert policemen. It is already clear that prohibition cannot stop proliferation. Similarly it is becoming apparent that the consequences of climate change in a world without nuclear are going to be far worse than popular fears of a world powered only by nuclear. We must brave a nuclear future.

State actors are able, often, to acquire "the bomb". On their own, I count USSR, France, Israel, China, India and Pakistan. Possibly North Korea. Pakistan, at least, did this without involving nuclear reactors.
This is really a separate topic from those associated with nuclear power plants.
