    Unless there is a way to stop smart scientists from being born in enemy countries, it seems to me it is only a matter of time before anyone who wants nukes will have some nuclear capacity.

      Does anyone really think you can stop them?  It's hard, but it's not that hard.

        It's just hard enough. Really expensive too. And besides, if you try and fail, it's a really spectacular failure. Even a non spectacular failure kills a bunch of people and leaves a pretty large area a wasteland.
