The U.S. government will install radiation detectors in Singapore's busy port to prevent the smuggling of ingredients for dirty nuclear bombs, U.S. officials said on Thursday.
Singapore, a close ally in the U.S.-led war on terrorism, is the first Southeast Asian nation to join Washington's "MegaPorts" security initiative which also covers the Bahamas, Belgium, Greece, the Netherlands, Sri Lanka and Spain.
"We must be ready to dare all for our country. For history does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid. We must acquire proficiency in defense and display stamina in purpose." - President Eisenhower, First Inaugural Address
