    Iraq had no nuclear weapons which made it easy for the United States to invade them. The United States will never invade North Korea because they have nukes.

    However, anything can happen. Although a nuclear armed Ukraine would have reduced the probabality of a Russian invasion, that probability would not have been zero.  If multiple countries have nuclear weapons, the odds say that eventually we will have nuclear war. Thus, the best policy is for no nation to have nukes.

    The end of the Cold War was a great time to move to zero nuclear weapons. Unfortunately, the world leaders failed to take advantage of this opportunity.
