It's been a while since I meandered around the proliferation and arms control blogosphere. Here's some of the better material I found:

  • With Britain having recently declared the exact size of its nuclear arsenal, who's next? The Federation of American Scientists has some estimates for nuclear-armed countries that still keep their stockpile size a secret.
  • Nukes of Hazzard links to a Stimson Center online game which imagines a nuclear-free world. You can play any country, and the aim is to produce a nuke while avoiding detection.
  • McClatchy's Nukes and Spooks blog reports that new satellite imagery suggests India is preparing to expand production of highly enriched uranium.
  • CxI, a nuclear and missile proliferation blog, is hosting a symposium to discuss a draft academic paper on North Korea's ballistic missile program. The central argument of the paper is that Pyongyang gets lots of Russian help.
  • The first photo of India's indigenous strategic missile submarine emerged recently.
