America does the same thing so who are we to complain about Iran doing it? At least they do let inspectors in unlike some countries.
Aren't pro-Iran posters tired of using the same old freaking arguments about this? What does your statement prove? Nothing... You are just attacking
other nation to validate your opinion that Iran is peaceful and has a right to do these thing's...
You know why American can't be blammed for that? Because it was the american weapons program that developed the first nuclear weapon, and it was
actually the U.S. Gov that aided several other countries to reach nuclear capability, both for weapons or energy.
The reason why that argument is so weak is mostly due to the fact that the U.S. has no interest in hiding anything nuclear from other countries. The
technology? It's out there, in several NATO and allied countries. How many nukes there are? It's well addressed in the NPT aggreement. Where are
those nukes? Some facilities are still secret for self-defense purposes, most are already disclosed (mostly because they are now disabled after the
If your opinion is with Iran, and if you truly believe that there is faul play by western countries, then by all means expose your opinion. But at
least make the intellectual effort into validating it with strong arguments, sources, or at least use reason.
The U.S. have nuclear weapons since the 40's. They increased nuclear warhead production, not because it was cool, but because there was a need for
it, and that need was around the fact that the russians were doing exactly the same thing.
Now, the U.S. creates the first nuke, uses it, increases it's arsenal along with several other countries, and when it's common knowledge that M.A.D.
protocols are useless, the arsenal starts do decrease with the NPT.
Where in that line of actions do you see the U.S. in the same place as Iran? Iran signed the NPT, and that alone makes the argument of "the U.S.
never allowed inspections into certain areas" invalid. The U.S. has been decreasing it's arsenal, and the secrets are for safety.
Which safety? Yours and mine. So that what happened when the Soviet Union collapsed, won't happen in the U.S. (having the risk of nuclear weapons
Iran applied for nuclear technology and energy in an era where people don't want more nukes. That's what this is all about. If Iran wants to live as
a nuclear power in all fronts, then they should sign off the NPT and make their own nuclear technology.
You want to talk about hypocrisy? Let's talk about the fact that Iran signed the NPT in order to get access and help
from Western countries to
achieve nuclear status, and drops a colossal turd on top of the NPT, hides facilities, does clean-up jobs, and does all sort of crap that goes against
what they agreed to
Iran wants to have secrets? Sign off the NPT.
Iran wants nukes? Sign off the NPT.
But when you sign off the NPT, the "power and money tit" is also gone. That's why Iran doesn't leave. And people pro-Iran just forget to mention
this all the time(the fact that Iran has received a shiPload of money and assistance from western countries for being part of the NPT).
Forget, or are just plain ignorant about what the NPT is for and why it exists...
