Are we sure we can trust those people? India has nuclear arms and is fighting Pakistan all the time (and vice versa of course). Of course, this has little to do with Perl, it is pure politics. India is a democracy. Korea too. But they are not "open" democracies, the governments are quite restrictive. And there's a lot of corruption, really a lot.
The USA has more nuclear arms than India and Pakistan combined, has fought more wars than both countries combined
since their independence, and has fought more wars in the
last couple of years as well. As for "open" democracy and
corruption, the USA doesn't have a spotless record either.
Far from that, actually.
