    List of states with nuclear weapons - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Which countries according to your realistically described opinion will in the foreseeable future acquire nuclear weapons?
    Or is it even possible, that some currently nuclear armed states are forced to de-nuclearize?

    Pakistan, North Korea and soon Iran... hopefully. I cant see any other countries being forced to give up their nukes though, nor should they be. I think it should be a rule that no dictatorships, or Islamic nations especially, should be allowed to have nuclear weapons.

    I can think of several countries that could develop a nuclear weapon in a year if disposed to do so. Taiwan may have nukes but Japan, South Korea, Australia, South Africa (Might have already), Canada, Germany, and a few others have the expertise, and capability. The reason I say South Africa and Taiwan may have nukes is that there were some unexplained activities a few years that could indicate some testing. Nothing definite but for the Taiwanese, they would not want to publicize that they nukes for fear of what China would do.
