Given the vulnerabilities which are environing the geopolitics in the Asian region and ever-increasing interference of the US in the internal matters of the sovereign countries on flimsy grounds, it’s not surprising that smaller countries like Iran and North Korea are taking all possible measures to safeguard their national interests.
It’s not too taxing for the brain to intercept the reasons ,which made countries like Iran and also North Korea to have care a damn about the collective will of the major nuclear powers. How can one prevent another to be in league of things which are essential to elevate one’s stature on the world’s map? In fact, the US’s absurd ignorance of Pakistan’s secret transfer of the nuclear technology to dangerous minds is one of the important factors, which facilitated North Korea in materializing its nuclear dreams.
After all,the bigger nations,having equipped themselves with superior nuclear warheads,have lost all moral grounds to crack a whip on smaller nations like Iran. The only thing which these superpowers can do is to pressurize these small nations to be laced with ‘indigenous wisdom’ in order to be conscious about implications of the bombs’ misuse. The tests conducted by these nations should be enough to make US realize that its hegemonic games have given rise to dubious power centers in various part of the globe.
Anyway it remains to be seen how US deals with Pakistan since nations like North Korea could not have materialized their nuclear dreams without the Pakistan’s covert help. It’s savage irony that US’s ambiguous approach towards Pakistan is not only proving fatal for its peaceful co-existence perceptions but also making other nations hyper-sensitive about their security needs.
