State Department blog Question of the Day!

At Wizbang - I just found out the US State Department runs a weblog!

Here is their question:

Question of the Week: Who Should be Allowed To Possess Nuclear Technology?
Permalink | Posted By: Frederick Jones on Sep 27, 2007 - 01:31 PM

In 1968, the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) was created to prevent the further proliferation of nuclear weapons, as well as promote the peaceful use of nuclear energy and express the intention of NPT signatories to achieve disarmament. Nonetheless, questions exist as to why the international community approves of some nations possessing nuclear materials and not others.

"What should determine who should be allowed to possess nuclear technology and who should not?"


Here is my response:

I think most stable republics and democracies could qualify to have Nukes.  As they would not use them.  It's dictatorships/totalitarian and religious fundamental states that have little or no respect for life that need to be prevented from having nukes. 

I have no problem with the US, UK, France (barely), or Israel having Nukes.  I do have concern about Russia, China and both Pakistan/India having nukes. 

I believe that if the Middle Eastern countries who have no problem chanting death to America and Death to Israel need to be stopped - ABSOLUTELY stopped from developing Nukes.  If that means military action needs to be taken - so be it.  Better to resolve the issue now than to let appeasement run its course.  Because we all should know appeasement does not work!

Seriously I cannot believe some of the responses on that blog.  I must question some of the intelligence of some people...do they actually think?  Have critical thinking skills?  or for that matter a BRAIN?  Geez!
