The following statement in this story tells me the leaders are just giving us Lip Service. “Today’s nuclear security system – a hodgepodge of voluntary national pledges” in others words BS on the streets.

Fukushima shows the problems of nuclear power waste without adequate processes of disposal of radioactive material.
It has not needed a fissile explosion of heat and neutrons to render areas with fairly quickly fatal levels of radioactivity and more slowly fatal pollution of water and farmland.
Presumably, such material can be dispersed by conventional military artillery shells and bombs and missiles, as well as by “terrorist” IEDs.
And assuming the only threat is from Big Al’s boys in Goatistan does not deal with secret conspiracies for power by groups in the military or government of places like Japan, Turkey, Ukraine, …, Russia, USA, …

A dirty bomb is extremely hard to conceive just ask any nuclear expert, it takes time and absolutely meticulous planning to come to fruition. The only people capable of this is US, Russia and Israel no one else even comes close. It is way beyond capabilities of Al Qaida and other splinter groups. The only real threat is Polonium poisoning which is in the realm of a rogue nation. Let’s be very concerned about that first, and also as someone mentioned above, worry about leakages into our environment, remember mother nature can be pretty unforgiving.

the US and Russia should “swap a few Cities” just to let the world know “we’re back and we’re both in charge again.”

The world was so much simpler then. A billion used to be a big deal. 40,000 warheads seemed sufficient.
Berlin was a great time…wall and all.

Now the it’s all “heil everything” and Saudi Arabia and Israel are best buds. And quite frankly I DON’T LIKE IT.
