Nix To The Nukes

Remember George Bush's "axis of evil"? North Korea and Iran were both in the media for all the wrong reasons yesterday.

"... the deterrent effect has not worked in the two outstanding axis of evil states, North Korea and Iran, whose nuclear ambitions remain undimmed and whose truculence has, if anything, intensified. Indeed, some, such as the Australian Strategic Policy Institute's military analyst, Aldo Borgu, believe the invasion of Iraq has made these two more desperate to cling to their nuclear programs: "The Iraq war sends the message that if you don't have nuclear weapons, this is what will happen to you."
