I argue that for every country to have an independent fuel cycle is the wrong way to go. Because any country which has a complete fuel cycle is a latent nuclear weapons country, in the sense that it is not far from making a nuclear weapon.
I am building a fire, and everyday I train, I add more fuel. At just the right moment, I light the match.
Weapons are an important factor in war, but not the decisive one; it is man and not materials that counts.
