so why should the UK and USA be openly packing these weapons, while telling others that they cannot?
the USA maintains that their arsenal is a deterrent [this deterrrent incidentally, seemed to do nothing against the S11 kamikazes], yet it is unreasonable for N Korea to have a [much smaller] similar deterrent
apparently it is reasonable for the USA/UK to wage war against Iraq in the name of disarmament [despite not finding any WMD]
the USA has been blocking anti-testing and anti-missile measures for decades now, so why should we believe that they want [real] disarmament?
why should we be concerned about the nature and actions of other regimes, when the USA blocks the formation of an international criminal court unless the USA gains immunity from war crimes prosecutions in that court?
It seems that the politics of the big stick is the rational, and since the guy with the stick wants everyone in the middle east to drop their sticks except israel [who has a number of the biggest sticks] why should we trust that the USA is equitable in it's aspiration for peace when it wants to hold WMD indefinitely?
