  • 添加 According to US diplomatic cables recently released by WikiLeaks, US diplomats worry that an arms race in South Asia and the Middle East 'has direct potential to lead to nuclear war.' Iran, Syria and North Korea are trying to build missiles capable of striking far beyond the region. The US intervened directly with the Indian government to stop Syria from acquiring materials used to produce chemical weapons. And North Korea remains a one-stop shopping center for materials used to produce weapons of mass destruction. But the greatest potential flashpoint of all is a possible nuclear war between India and Pakistan, which is producing nuclear weapons faster than any other country in the world. At the same time, worsening political instability in Pakistan and the deterioration of Pakistan's economy increase chances that terrorists could obtain fissile material.
