    Where is the hypocrisy there? The US has not been ambiguous in its commitment to Israel.

    In an ideal world maybe this could happen, but in today's real world it's not going to happen.

    No one can force a nuclear-armed Israel to sign the NPT just as no one can force a nuclear-armed Russia to leave Ukraine alone.

    That's just the reality of things.

    Let's see how that works for you.


    That's what G.W. Bush should have done instead of invading Iraq which was no threat to the USA.

    And a great argument for global disarmament since nuclear power can lead to unstoppable belligerence.

    Nothing will stop U.S. hypocrisy on this or any other issue when it's in the USA's best interest.

    Why do we keep allowing such nonsense?


    Check with the U.S. government, I'm sure that it will give you a full explanation.
