    Then what is the point or advantage of having the NPT treaty? Why on earth should we trust Israel more than Iran.. Iran has not attacked another nation in centuries.. Israel has. Why should we trust the US with nukes? or Russia?

    Either you make a treaty that actually means something for all the makers of nukes, or you might as well just drop it.

    Yep and that is a separate but similar problem.

    There never has been a requirement that a potential or actual nuclear power sign the NPT. Signing the treaty is done on a strictly voluntary basis.

    Yes the main problem with the NPT.. it should not be voluntary.

    The A. Q. Khan network (funded by the state of Pakistan) transferred nuclear technology and/or nuclear weapons technology to three nations (Iran, Libya, North Korea) and approached at least three others (Syria, Algeria, Saudi Arabia).
    And? Not sanctioned by the government. Plus there was sanctions put against Pakistan and India (until Bush removed them of course)...

    Not officially in public, but there is no way Khan could have transferred Pakistani nuclear secrets (the Pakistani government refers to their nuclear technology as - our national pearls) without the ISI and the government being aware of his foreign undertakings.

    Of course they should. I'm not shocked we don't push it, but its only common sense.

    Actually H. W. Bush stood up to them. He ended up being a one term President. That may have had something to do with it.

    No need. Israel will not use their nukes unless pressed to the wall, nor will they help our enemies obtain nukes, so it isn't a real concern.
