Example text

Assuming there are those in the world who would use nuclear weapons, for whatever reason, then if fissile materials become easier to obtain, as many believe has happened over recent years, the a priori probability of a nuclear weapon being used by some such group increases. When evaluating the chances of fissile material being obtained, it is natural, at the present time, to concentrate on the potential opportunities in the former Soviet Union. There is no way of knowing whether nuclear materials were illegally removed in the aftermath of the collapse of the Soviet Union.

The US-Russian strategic arms reduction talks are thus transformed, from the perspective of the Russian negotiator, into a means to cap the US arsenal, and thereby restrict any disparity that develops in the size of the arsenals of the two countries to within acceptable bounds. There is some prospect, therefore, that the START process will be resurrected. This is provided that the USA does not abrogate the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty, as a result of its determination to create a national missile defence.

Organized crime, including drug trafficking, has different roots from terrorism and operates in a different way, working to corrupt the social framework. Globalization of markets, advances in telecommunications technology, falling commodity prices, armed conflict, debt, and mass migration have all worked to enhance the wealth and power of international crime organizations in the past decade. As a result, criminal enterprises now have many resources previously held only by states, including financial wealth in excess of many national economies, sophisticated telecommunications equipment, and advanced armaments.
