Condoleezza Rice, then Secretary of State, admonished Israel against using such a weapon in that war with Hezbollah. Many Lebanese were treated at the hospital for burns caused by white phosphorus. There should be no exceptions to the rule of NPT.
    anything signed under duress is nonbinding
    why would any nation abide by the terms of a treaty that they did not execute it of their own volition
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    I already said yes, why is this still being debated?

    Yes, they should be required to sign it just like any other nation.

    What other nations are "required" to sign such treaty?

    So you're asking why should the West trust its own nations such as the US and Israel with nuclear weapons?
    What kind of ridiculous question is that?
    And why do you believe that you speak in the name of the West? You who detest it? You who hate America and Israel with great passion and oppose anything Western, siding with the darkest and most backwards regimes such as the Iranian one or practically anyone who opposes the West? Give me a break.

    Gotcha. It's voluntary, unless you want sanctions. Any nation that refuses should expect such. Thanks for pointing that out. What is good for the goose is good for the gander. No sanctions for one nation when none are given to another.

    That's a more reasonable approach.
    If you want to place sanctions on your own as an individual on India, Israel and Pakistan for not signing the NPT then do go ahead and do so, I don't know any country that actually will.

    Then I trust you will do your part to keep in check any of those in your country who would think of striking nations developing their own.
