Jose Alencar, Brazil VP, Says Country Should Build Nuclear Arms

Brazil's vice president says in an interview published Friday that his country should develop nuclear weapons. Other officials stressed that his comments were not government policy.

Jose Alencar, who also served as defense minister from 2004 to 2006, said in an interview with journalists from several Brazilian news media that his country does not have a program to develop nuclear weapons, but should: "We have to advance on that."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The world had a very unambiguous lesson in what happens to countries which do not not have a nuclear deterrent, thanks to the US invasion and occupation of Iraq.
