Worry about terrorists and religious extremists keep talk away from more serious threats.
Al Jazeera news website is running a cartoon strip titled "Nuclear is the New Nobel." This was inspired by Jimmy Carter, Nobel Laureate, mentioning the number of nuclear arms in Israel's hands.
1. Carter: "Israel has 150 atomic bombs."
2. Ahmadinejad of Iran: "We'll try to achieve that target. Insha Allah!"
3. Kim Jong-il, North Korea: "Hey! Over here! We have more than that!"
4. Musharraf, Pakistan: "We have less, but more accurate!"
5. Smt. Pratibha Patil, India: "We'll not disclose the number, it's confidential."
