    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    Yes, they should, if they expect other countries to listen to them about their nuclear plants (Iran) they should allow themselves or as the option says it is blatant double standards

    i voted yes so a double standard isn't an issue. I believe if one wants to be diplomatic in the world better results are achieved if one says "hey, we are open about our weapons so please be open about yours" instead of "show us yours or else".

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    If the US were to allow inspections, what exactly would be the point?

    It seems to me that the only countries that allow nuclear weapons inspections are those that are FORCED to.

    Weapons inspections are an alternative to regime change, if you are a good boy.

    Weapons inspections have nothing to do with fairness, it is about those with power looking to keep it. Why would anybody be confused about this?

    Our biggest threat is the unknown proliferation of nuclear weapons. These can be produced by an able country and given to a terrorist group, that is not from their country, to use. So Iran could give a bomb to Al-Queda who rents a plane in South America and detonates a nuke in Miami. Iran pretends to know nothing, and Al-Queda slips back into the rocks. That is our greatest fear and that is why the US will attempt to keep nukes under the wraps as tightly as possible.

    Allow inspections of the location, quantity, and type of our nuclear weapons. Expose our most guarded technical secrets to the world?

    Daft, anyone who even considers this reasonable is daft beyond measure.


    My answer, which amazingly is not a choice, because I find them all a wee bit anti-US is : No, because we don't have to.
