Per our previous correspondence in which you sought assessment of your country’s situation:
Realistically, your nuclear program will not advance beyond stockpiling the weapon. The number of enemies that you have requires a multitude of devices even when factoring in the scale of fallout and the prevailing winds; by the time you are done building the right amount, there will be no one left to fight. If you try to sell it to a third party, you will likely catch the attention of agents monitoring the black market. Considering the [redacted] and its allies have previously placed their hand in that pot, your chances of successfully completing the transaction without a trail leading back to your house are small though not impossible. The odds are higher that it will be stolen from you.
My advice would be to continue building your nuclear facilities, albeit very slowly; when they are finished, officially abandon your nuclear weapon plans (should you still be interested in them) entirely. This course of action achieves two things. First of all, drawing out the process grants you time to expend your resources on more important projects, specifically the tools of cyber warfare.
You yourself can attest to the effectiveness of this method of espionage. A virus in one of your structures recently impeded your nuclear progress by forcing music to blare at inopportune times at night. You are not the only victim of an assault on energy structures, but you will be if you do not study proper safeguards. The Flame malware program secretly mined data from your database for an indeterminate amount of time before you were able to ferret it out. [Redacted]’s plan for attack involves crippling your infrastructure via a cyber attack in conjunction with missiles. Learning to counter these strategies is of utmost priority in the near, if not immediate, future. The rules of engagement have not been officially outlined at the moment, which allows you the leeway to experiment and attack; no one can currently charge you with anything as long as you are somewhat careful in covering your digital signature. And while you’re gathering knowledge about cyber warfare, your adversaries will be busy fretting over the nuclear weapons you don’t have.
The fact that your own people were able to ground a drone using a form of GPS spoofing is a testament to how powerful a technological assault is. Imagine gaining access to a drone’s guidance and onboard weapons systems and turning it on a civilian population. The damage to your enemies’ reputations would be substantial if not catastrophic.
The other boon is that by terminating your weapons program before it has started, you have achieved the higher moral ground, at least on the surface of things. The [redacted] and other nations have repeatedly warned that your ambitions are detrimental to the region. If you complete your facilities for peaceful purposes as you have always asserted, their warnings become baseless claims based on paranoia and fear. The international community will be hesitant to listen to future accusations against you, justified or otherwise.
Forfeiting your nuclear ambitions also improves your longevity as a nation. Based loosely on economist Martin Shubik’s concept of the three-way duel, my findings determine that your survival actually improves in the short term. In the case of a nuclear war, the ones holding the weapons will be the first to perish as they are the greatest threats to each other. “Blessed are the meek” rings true in this case. After the major global players are dead, then and only then is creating a nuclear weapon an attractive option.
If need be, ask trusted members of the [redacted] government for consultation. Although the extent of their capabilities are unknown to me, they have shown evidence of meaningful investment. They will not provide you with everything they know, but they could offer some knowledge (in exchange for something of an equivalent value, of course)
