    If any hostile species comes to us, our nuclear weapons will be about as effective as bows and arrows.

    I'm sticking with you then.

    Of COURSE weapons should be banned from space.

    After all, weaponizing space gives is a large advantage over our adversaries -- and its just not fair for us to have such an advantage.

    I would still argue that if for some reason nuclear weapons would become of vital importance in the area for some reason then a country may choose to remove itself from the treaty while trying to avoid foreign and domestic media condemnation.

    That is, treaties are fairly useless in and of themselves without enforcement, which no strong country will readily submit itself to. A treaty violation merely helps others countries masquerade as having the high moral ground on an issue.
    Please read.

    The area covered reaches the west coast of Australia to the South American Nuclear Free Zone, from the equator to 60 degrees South (the northern boundary of the 1959 Antarctic Treaty).

    Are you trying to assert something or just referencing data?

    I don't see how your post is a sensible response to mine.
    If you believe in the Supernatural then you can become a millionaire!

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.
