Speranza Nuova published a thoughtful piece at Singapore Angle considering the question as to whether Singapore should build nuclear reactors. Nuova suggests that should Indonesia decide to build reactors, this move might cancel out any reservations that prevent Singapore from going down that road:
...if Indonesia built a reactor first, it would dilute the opprobrium against Singapore building one as well. And one might argue that if the risk of nuclear fallout haze exists (e.g. accident, terrorist strike, earthquake), one might as well have a nuclear plant on domestic soil anyway.Thailand and Malaysia might well be thinking the same way. And why shouldn't Burma follow their lead?
