    You want to require signatures and force compliance, start with North Korea. Let's see how that works for you.

    I would say that it would surprise me, if Israel only had a program and not weapons with delivery capability. But that is relatively common knowledge.

    For me the question would seem more to be, what good would it would be to sign?

    What would good would it be, if they signed? I do not see any advantage to anybody.

    Of course they should.
