    The refuge of the forlorn fanatic: "The only reason people haven't adopted my way of thinking is because they are all bought and paid for!". It honestly makes them feel better about the irrelevancy of their conspiratorial worldview.

    required?
    no

    expected?
    absolutely

    but until it is a signatory to that agreement then its voice, its view should never be heard about another nation seeking nuclear capacity
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    So far, there are only four nations that entirely did away with nuclear weapons and signed the NPT;

    • South Africa voluntarily disassembled its nuclear weapons (?) and signed the NPT.

    • Belarus voluntarily transferred its nuclear weapons (81) to Russia and signed the NPT.

    • Kazakhstan voluntarily transferred its nuclear weapons (1,400) to Russia and signed the NPT.

    • Ukraine voluntarily transferred its nuclear weapons (5,000) to Russia and signed the NPT.
    Well, I mean you can ridicule the notion by referring to it as nirvana. Or you can embrace it and lobby for it. It's not an impossibility, nor are Einstein's calculations on world war, if we don't.

    Unfortunately, that's true. However, no one stays on top forever

    AFAIK no country has ever been forced to sign the NPT. Indeed some have even withdrawn from it, such as NK. Why should we force it on any Nation? Indeed, what gives us the Right to force any country to sign anything?

    Many people definitely want Jews and Israel defenseless and subject to eradication from earth. Nothing new or creative about that view of your messages.

    Why don't you do some research for once. The number of deaths from wars has radically dropped since the invention of the atomic bomb - and the number of major wars and world wars since then has been exactly zero.

    The warmongering messages, in reality, are your's, because you want to make major war possible again, as was the entire history of the human race until the atomic bomb came along - making total war - FINALLY - impossible for anyone to win.

    I wonder who we have to thank for that?
    Obviously you blame the Allies and Russians for prevailing in WWII. The world would be so much better had only Hitler succeeded, huh?

    And Ukraine is paying for it now in deaths and being militarily defeated and, essentially, eliminated as a country. If Ukraine has 6 nuclear warheads there wouldn't be a Russian soldier in Ukraine now.

    If Israel gave up their atomic weapons they slaughtered. But plenty of people want exactly that. Curiously, increasingly it has become liberals who support making that possible.

    At least you admit you want jews eradicated from the ME and their ancestral nation. Or do you just want them enslaved? Any other races you want to eliminate or enslave for "hegemony?" There used to be a strong movement for that against Chinese and blacks in this country.

    Do you support religion and ethnic "hegemony" in the United States? You may be the only member of the forum who openly advocates systemic white privilege as the ideal American society.

Israel needs to comply.
    Given Iran's attitudes and abuse of gays it was foregone that you love Iran, just like you cheer Putin for his rants and law against gays.

    Why do you stay in the USA? Seriously. Can't afford to leave?
