If we're so against nukes, maybe we should be making the first step towards our own disarmament. This has far more to do with asserting US dominance than it does with world peace. We're being war mongered.

    Thank you MK , this brings his question to a whole other level. I responded to what he asked and as usual he was unresponsive... Not worth the time, not worth the consideration.

    I happen to 'get' what he means. Because an ant says it can bite an elephant... does that mean the elephant should stomp it.

    While I agree that it is about US dominance I have to disagree that just because the US has nukes it means that we should let those that signed a treaty to not make nukes, have nukes.

    Your answer didn't demonstrate a real threat to the US, by any means. That was the point.
