Bring your own bombs

People tend to watch when examples are being made on the world stage. Especially examples of what not to do. Right now, everyone with half a brain who looks at the coast of Africa is making some simple calculations.

1. The West cannot be trusted one bit.
2. Giving up your weapons programs won't save you.
3. Kim Jon Il might be ill, but he is also very much OK(another stupid pun, couldn't resist) and no one dares to do as much as raise a finger agaisnt him even when he shells another country.
4. The Great Leader has nukes. Gaddafi gave them up. Saddam gave up on his WMDs too.

Well I don't see two of the above mentioned 3 on the world stage anymore. Do you? The painfully obvious conclusion is that you need a proper deterrent if you want to survive when the USA&NATO are looking at you funny, and I don't mean a UN resolution. You need nukes, or at worst enough chemical agents to really really scare people. So I'm doing this moderately wild guess, that nuclear proliferation will go over the top. Same with other WMDs. Everyone that fears Western intervention will do whatever possible to get some. And, as it always happens in commerce(even this kind of commerce) some of those things will be lost and eventually find their way in very wrong hands.

Basically, the next decade will be, to quote Terry Pratchett - "Interesting times".
