No, Western countries are pathologically afraid of nuclear reactors.

I could see Japan, China, India or Russia all deciding to use nuclear pulse, altho Japan probably wouldn't use it in atmo...they (the Japanese) would most likely use laser-launch to boost anything to orbit, and then light off the drives.
If you think an Apache can't tell right from wrong....wrong him, and see what happens.
