Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Now that they North Koreans have tested a nuclear weapon, I guess we get to see how Japan reacts. I highly suspect that the whole neighborhood is going to go nuclear. (Japan, South Korea, Taiwan)  And we all though that the end of the Cold War ended the threat of nuclear war....  

Yet, we have 4 potential new nuclear states in the last week from this.

I read somewhere years ago that Japan allegedly had a secret nuke development programme, which enables it to build a bomb from the second the government decides they shall turn nuclear power, so indeed this could be it. (I wonder though if anyone better versed in these matters, like Pierre or our Japan contingent, knows anything about this.)
