SECURING LOOSE NUKES

After a presidency spent actively thwarting international non-proliferation efforts (not to mention turning a blind eye on the detriorating situation in Russia and the nefarious escapades of his dictatorial cronies), Bush is proposing to do something about the spread of nuclear technologies and fissile materials.

Here is how the Financial Times guages the plan:

"President George W. Bush's proposals for policing the global traffic in nuclear material would demand an unprecedented degree of international co-operation if they are to foil the sort of black-market network that was supplying Libya and North Korea, according to non-proliferation experts." (Emphasis added).

In what I hope can be the first ever Globalize This! readers' opinion poll, please post your comments on the likeliness of the Bush administration finding success in this cooperative effort.
