The Nuclear Dinner!

What could the chef prepare for the ‘Nuclear Dinner’ in  Seoul Nuclear Security Summit?

The menu should mention the precautions to “have” some content or another of the vast choices available. The table must be operated with nuclear power, to distribute the amounts of uranium dishes with justice. The chairs would have to be parts of nuclear reactors to help the speakers expressing their superiority freely. And, there would be an agreement among the VIPs to determine where to throw the remains of the talks, the waste of the dishes, and the hopes of the future!

Although 90 percent of the global population is represented in the Seoul Nuclear Security Summit, I wonder how much could those representatives care about their peoples?
I would not expect, as an example, that Japan would stop its active role of sourcing energy from nuclear reactors, in response to what happened in Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant. If we go back, the Japanese authorities did not put in consideration all warnings raised for the last two decades regarding the same activity.

In 1990 the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) ranked the failure of the emergency electricity generators and subsequent failure of the cooling systems of plants in seismically very active regions one of the most likely risks. The Japanese Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency (NISA) cited this report in 2004. According to Jun Tateno, a former NISA scientist, TEPCO did not react to these warnings and did not respond with any measures.

There were also the risks of the type of boiling water reactors cooling systems such as those in Fukushima I, and claimed the risks were known since 1971in a series of documentaries telecasted in the BBC in 1992 and advised that PWR type reactors should have been used.

For the Middle East, the stories could look more satirically danger. With a confused image that combines between nuclear power and nuclear bomb, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia declared – as a reaction to some expectations – which they would move quickly to acquire nuclear weapons if Iran successfully tests an atomic bomb! With the money enough to buy the uranium, the U.S. paper that published the story suggested that Pakistan was the country most likely to supply Saudi Arabia with weapons, saying Western officials were convinced there was an understanding between the countries to do so if the security situation in the region gets worse. Pakistan and Saudi Arabia have denied such an arrangement exists.
In the same region, the occupying State of Israel has not confirmed that it has nuclear weapons. It began actively investigating the nuclear option from its earliest days. In 1949, HEMED GIMMEL a special unit of the IDF’s Science Corps began a two-year geological survey of the Negev desert, east of the Egyptian Sinai peninsula, with an eye toward the discovery of uranium reserves. The United States – by 1975 – was convinced that the occupying State of Israel had nuclear weapons. 

It is widely reported that it had two bombs in 1967, and that Prime Minister Eshkol ordered them armed in Israel’s first nuclear alert during the Six-Day War. It is also reported that, fearing defeat in the October 1973 Yom Kippur War, the Israelis assembled 13 twenty-kiloton atomic bombs. Israel could potentially have produced a few dozen nuclear warheads in the period 1970-1980, and is thought to have produced sufficient fissile material to build 100 to 200 warheads by the mid-1990s.

In 1986 descriptions and photographs of Israeli nuclear warheads were published in the London Sunday Times of a purported underground bomb factory at the Dimona nuclear reactor. The photographs were taken by Mordechai Vanunu, a dismissed Israeli nuclear technician. His information led some experts to conclude that the occupying State of Israel had a stockpile of 100 to 200 nuclear devices at that time! And, in the same time, the occupying State of Israel is acting loudly to start a war against Iran to prevent it from starting a program for nuclear power! 

The appetite of the gathering seniors around the table of the nuclear weapons is not determined yet. Are they going to see the positive aspects of the nuclear power; that makes life easier, and globe greener? Or should they feel bad appetite when they recall the nuclear bomb’s catastrophes, and the nuclear energy’s failures that led for many times to the worst world tsunamis and destructions. We could ask the chef as soon as the nuclear party is over.
