    Noticeably absent are the problems with NK and Iran. :terror:

    It's called facing reality.

    Haven't seen all the details of the treaty so it's hard to say if this was a wise move or not. Is it fair to assume that you feel that this is a big mistake on the part of the US?

    Absolutely a big mistake. Bush doesn't want international inspectors in the US and I believe Bush supports a new line of tactical nukes. If we want the world's supply of WMD reduced, we need to stop producing them ourselves. What is "cutting edge" now and being developed in the US defense arsenal, will be more readily available to rogue states and terrorists in a couple decades. Do we need "bunker buster" nukes that badly that we will risk their proliferation in the future? Once Israel steals the plans for them, the rest of the world will soon follow.

    Israel probably helped develop them so it's no secret to them. If the US stops making WMDs then the terrorists will say " cool, let's disarm" too?

    It shouldn't be difficult to follow the administrations thinking on this. Backing out of the inspection treaty now saves room for us to back out of the non-proliferation treaty later. The shifting global alliance will most likely require us to either arm another country with nukes or to station ourselves there with nukes. Backing out also gives the US the ability to launch a nuke at a country without nukes.

    Some of us look smart and some of us look beautiful. You do just fine doing the latter. ;)
