    Re: Does Iran have a "Right" to Nuclear Weapons?

    By the by, this is exactly why I like open polls. Not to see who voted for what, but to see if anyone is screwing around with the poll results. And this one has definitely been screwed with.

    14 people voted yes...but it says 64 did.

    What an utterly idiotic thing to say.

    In fact, it is absurd to claim that is the issue. Does every country have the "right" to have the means to totally destroy the USA in a nuclear attack or to irradiate the entire world in such an attack against another country? Do you think that such "rights" exist or ever have among and between nations?

    .
    Does the U.S. have the right to have enough nuclear weapons to destroy the rest of the world while denying that right to others. Your answer to that questions was lost in a "Such a level of being naïve and so zippy pinhead lost in platitudes" attitude, perhaps you would like to try again

    But is that the right of the U.S. to dictate to the rest of the world, sounds a lot like colonialism

    Including the U.S., so if we give up ours perhaps others will cease to want them?

    working on the poll
    Iran has a right to defend itself like any other nation, and if it deems nukes to be critical to that role, so be it.

    It needn't be said that the per-dollar value of nukes has diminished significantly over the years to cyber arms (which may soon completely replace nukes as a deterrent).

    O certainly believes its OK for Iran to have nukes, or else he wouldn't be doing what he's doing.

    How do you know only 14 of the 64 voted 'yes'?

    And how can someone 'screw' with the results?

Partly because by signing the treaty they signed whatever perceived or actual Right they had to make such weapons away. And when it comes to N.

But only because N. Korea is FREAKING CRAZY compared to Iran....and well...most other countries to.
    National sovereignty empowers nations to enter into treaties, and dissolve treaties as it may be in their interest. No other nation can force a treaty upon another.
