One has to ask why it never occurs to these people that the best way of preventing other nation states from getting nuclear weapons might be to get rid of their own. It doesn't have to be done unilaterally, all it needs is for a time to be set, perhaps 5 years ahead when all nuclear weapons and production, storage facilities etc, will have been destroyed, and agreements reached for international inspections and not to produce any more nuclear weapons. It won't be easy of course, requiring a new mind set and attitudes, but at least it would be cheaper, more efficient and produce better and more trust in international relations. Far better than all this mistrust and deception being sowed, so that the USA and other nuclear armed states can continue to try and dominate and police the world. The present strategy doesn't appear to be very successful...and the development and ownership appears to be developing, despite the Nuclear Proliferation Treaty.
After all, we all know how good the U.N. is at finding weapons of mass destruction, they never did find them in Iraq, even after American Intelligence told them where they were...and neither did the US government itself, or the "Coalition of The Willing" after the mission was accomplished.
Too easy isn't it... Just a thought. ATB Dougie.
