But that is another point. Even peaceful countries fight. And the danger of atomic strike is especially large, where human error is a major problem and short delivery periods reduce the time to check for them before your second strike capability is gone.
There is a different between blind trust as you want, and quite scepticism and alert-fullness that Europe is moving more and more towards. Trust has to be earned, and that trust there once was started to be seriously erode when Bush came to power and ever since even under Obama.
Where the hell have I said I speak for the west? My opinion are quite mainstream all across Europe, especially since the whole NSA surveillance issue. For decades we were taught to trust and admire the US and what it stands for, but since the fall of the wall we have gain our independence once again and started to question the validity of what we learned.. American citizens could do a dose of reality as well these days.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.
Tell me, why should any European trust what America or Israel says or does? We barely trust our own governments..
No doubt about that, as long as APIAC is around and which is why the US will always be seen as an Israeli puppet. As for the UK, that relationship with Israel has changed a lot and will change a lot after the next election. Bibi calling for Jews to go to Israel from Europe did not go down well among all established political parties.Much as it displeases Muslims around the world, the US/UK and Israel are strong allies, and will continue to be so for a long time.
And if Isreal does sign the treaty, they're fully justified in carrying out a black nuke program. Isreal has a moral blank check to do absolutely whatever it needs to do to survive.
If the EU ever began settlements in Israel, you can bet your ass that the US would fly to their aid in a second. General Dempsey already said that no matter who threatens Israel, the US military will respond accordingly.
Maybe you just do not know what hypocrisy means, you surely haven't pointed to any.
You do not have to be a party of a treaty to speak to others noncompliance. Especially when said noncompliance has the potential to affect them.
Saying so is ridiculous.
Bs. They don't just have a right, but it can be said it is a duty to speak out against a known hostile nation obtaining nukes.
You clearly do not know what the word means.
"The law is reason, free from passion."
As I stated.. trust has to be earned and gained. It can also easily be lost. The "special relationship" with the UK is only as special as long as the UK is in the EU.. that has been US policy since Reagan when Thatcher threatened to leave.. it is no different today. Is that a real ally or a bully in a so called complicated marriage?
So I ask again, why trust Israel or the US with nukes more than other countries? Should there not be equal standards on the subject?
