    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.
    What is "O" doing?

    Like I said, this is the one treaty that no one should be allowed to back out of once they signed it. I do of course know that isn't the way it is. But imo that should have been a stipulation put into the NPT. Also Iran and N. Korea wasn't forced into the NPT originally. The only thing that I'm advocating for is that they not be allowed to simply walk away from it after they willingly signed it the moment it becomes inconvenient for them.

    And how can someone 'screw' with the results?

    When you view poll results click on one of the numbers. It will show who voted for what.

    As for screwing with the results. A person simply as to stay logged out and vote, clear cookies and then vote again. Rinse repeat.

    I don't care what it sounds like. Despite leftist prattle about sensitivity toward all, Muslim jihadists included, the world is not one big kindergarten. This country has no obligation to be fair to its enemies.

    If we had a real president, the U.S. would tell the jihadist curs in Tehran what to do, and make them like it. They are scared of what this country could do to them if it wanted, and we should have taken advantage of that years ago to impose our will on them. Or, better yet, to get the murdering degenerates overthrown.

    It is a good answer. Iran voluntarily signed it. They have the right to leave it if they want. So long as they dont, they are bound by the agreement.

    And now they might withdraw their support of it. but taking your point since North Korea did not sign it and Israel did not sign it (and a couple of others I think) it would be okay for them to have and use nuclear weapons.

    We have no moral superiority (short of colonial power) to dictate to other nations how they should live, our house is not in that good of order at this point on any number of issues
