Nuclear weapons are used to deter countries such as the united states to invade or attack its countries.
Iraq had NO WMD's hence our country's invasion of it. If Iraq did have it, please tell me why they weren't used by Saddam when u.s. forces were on
the doorsteps of Baghdad, i mean, the whole point of stockpiling 500 supposed WMD's is to use them against say an enemy invasion in its sovereign
You guys are all afraid that rogue countries will have 1 nuclear weapon? Imagine the people in N. Korea, Iran, and Syria who have to deal with threats
by the Bush Adminstration who controls 10,000 nuclear warheads? uhhhh ok.
President Vladimir Putin mockingly said Moscow doesn't want the kind of violence-plagued democracy the United States has fostered in Iraq.
I watched an interview a couple of days ago, and some expert said that democracy will not work in the middle east unless you have the basic
fundamental freedoms that we have; freedom of speech, religion, press, etc etc
So i do have to say that i agree with Putin in that regard, i mean, Hamas winning the election is a good example of it not working, and yet we have
SoS Rice saying that the "democracy" in Iraq will encourage others in the ME to go for democracy. So unless you want Hamas-like regimes in power
through democracy in the ME, hey go for it.
Should countries that want Nuclear Power have it? To answer this, look at the countries that do have it. The U.S. won't even try to touch N. Korea or
China etc. Why? I've seen people talk about wanting regime change in N. Korea, but they won't force it like they did in Iraq, simply because N.
Korea DO have nuclear weapons.
It just seems weird that our media makes the leaders in Iran and N. Korea seem like thier "crazy" or "madmen" like in videogames, hellbent on the
destruction of the world. These guys are smart, probably more so than anyone on these boards, why? because their the leader of the country. Granted,
everyone says bush is an idiot etc etc but he is the president of the U.S. so either someone is being smart for him, or something, but he didn't get
to where he is by ONLY making fun of handicap people.
Anyways, to end this post i'll just say that the same way that Mutually Assured Destruction is used to deter countries to attack America, is in sync
with the way countries seeking nuclear power wants to use it to stop U.S. military aggression on thier homeland.
