    I think it's more parochial to say, "we have A, but we're the only ones that can be trusted with it".

    It doesn't matter.

    Another country may be making meanwhile nuclear weapons and we do not know yet.

    Or wait, it may be USA itself. (Just like the atomic bomb, no one knew about it, until they blast it)

But if you cannot accept that a people that were nearly wiped off the face of the Earth do not deserve to have a land of their own to prosper and be secure, then f*** you (not you, Northern Light. Just whoever says that )
    I don't want to see it destroyed, though it should be returned to the people the Israelis stole it from, via armed invasion.

    Well, it's not parochial, it's just untrue.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Why not give it back to the Romans?

    Should I be shocked at a country that has nuclear neighbors like Pakistan, India, and Israel, would develop nuclear weapons? No. Would I be shocked if they USED them? Absolutely. That's a death wish.

    Semantics. Yay! There aren't any Romans. Why don't we all return to the Congo? Since you believe that two wrongs make a right, you wouldn't mind if the American people were ever displaced by military conquest. After all, might is right. Right?

    I agree. The US is the only country that has proved it cannot be trusted with owning nuclear weapons. But whatya gonna do?

    Seriously?

    The Russians don't come to mind? You know, leaving active nuclear weapons guarded by poorly paid soldiers and chain linked fences?
    Or how about literal mountains of fissile material unguarded?
