Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You are right.

What these politicians fail to see is that a non-warhead Japan is a deterrant to further proliferation. If the country acquires/produces warheads, all psychological barriers against nukes will be lost. (It is not technically difficult to have them at all.) Soon, the generals will start firing nukes, as a less painful option to "end all wars."

I will become a patissier, God willing.
