NBC Weapons: America Helps China Secure Its Nukes


July 16, 2006: Without too much fanfare or publicity, the United States is providing nuclear armed nations with advice on developing "fail safe" and other technologies to secure their nukes. Help is also provided for improving security at the storage sites for nuclear weapons. While some of this discreet assistance involves American military secrets, much of it is no more than pointing out the commercial technologies and services available from American and European suppliers. The recipients of all this help appear to include India, Pakistan, China and Russia. Of course, this policy actually began during the later stages of the Cold War, when the U.S. wanted to help the Soviets keep their huge nuclear warhead inventory as secure as possible.
