    In terms of international politics and war, rights are not bestowed upon, they are taken.

    It is like someone smokes and tell others that it's dangerous for your health.

    I don't really think anyone has the "right" to wipe out entire populations of people, or push their weight around with threats of same.

    Furthermore, I find it utterly insane that some people think the only country that can be "trusted" with them is also the only country to ever use them (on civilians and for pretty much no reason, no less) and also a country that has nearly bombed its own people on numerous occasions through simple carelessness.

    In point of historical fact, there is no country with a worse track record than the US. Of the current countries that have nukes, the US is to be trusted the least.

    Since there were no legal constraints or pertinent treaties on atomic devices when the US developed such weapons, no law or treaty was infringed upon. It is estimated that 35-40 states could possess the technical acumen to develop nuclear weapons. The 190 (N Korea withdrew in 2003) signatory nations of the UN/NPT have the international "right" to develop nuclear technology for peaceful purposes with UN/IAEA oversight safeguards.

    I couldn't agree with you more. ISIS is nothing compared to Iran with a nuke.

    Yes, and it deserves a third. Leave it to the promoter of the apocalypse to suggest that the only country to have ever dropped nuclear weapons on a civilian target is to be the most trusted with them! Fantastic.

    Nah. The problem they have that we don't is that we have the ability, perhaps not the will, to stop them from getting them. No one has the ability to stop us. Your hero Kim that you added to my statement wouldn't have them either had we not had a weak dick-coward as President at the time. Oh, wait, we have a weak-dick muslim coward as "President" now, guess the ayatollahs will get their nukes also.

    You don't understand what makes something a "right". Something only becomes a "right" when there is enough might to force it's acceptance and protect it. So the US definitely has the right. If we had any sense, we would have less in inventory, less problems with socialist and muslim countries and a smaller world population.

    Then it would appear that you DON'T have the ability to stop them. I'm intrigued to know how you think you would prevent them getting one even if you did have the will to do so. I think sanctions and boycotts really wouldn't be sufficient.
