Comments on: A world without nuclear weapons: Obama’s pipe dream? Beyond the World news headlines Wed, 16 Nov 2016 20:09:42 +0000 hourly 1 By: hotaruSTAR16 Thu, 01 Oct 2009 08:24:57 +0000 Going along the lines with what most people have been saying, the U.S. will not give up nuclear weapons. Obama’s “dream” is like a wish for world peace, an impossible matter that people still wish for anyhow. Have you heard of Asia Chronicle News? The site has lots of in-depth analyses and commentaries related to the whole nuclear disarmament issue. Worth a read I think.

This has no relevance to my comment or the topic. The only aid I was talking about is the illegal aid to Israel (recipient of the largest aid package from the US), which is banned under the NNPT. The topic is about nuclear disarmament and the USA’s refusal to take it seriously, as the worst offender in the history of WMD’s.

By: brian lee Tue, 29 Sep 2009 06:14:01 +0000 brian,a lot countries object to American interference even the ones who are prepared to take aid in spite of these objections,particularly when they have some sort of natural catastrophe,and when America is normally the first to show up.Incidentally was it only a rumour that Clinton handed a 600 million bribe to North Korea?.

By: brian Mon, 28 Sep 2009 03:34:50 +0000 It’s not a dream, it’s actually very easy if you’re in the position of the United States. What is difficult for the US is disarming while at the same time retaining absolute supremacy and dictator status over the world.

All they have to do is start the ball rolling by eliminating their foreign based arsenal so as to reduce their 10 000+ stockpile to a domestic defensive capability only.
Then to give themselves some needed credibility they will have to stop further breaking NNPT treaty obligations and withdraw all financial (app. $4 billion / year) and military aid to Israel, which is prohibited by the treaty if the aid recipient is in possession of illegal nuclear weapons.
Then they need to treat as equals ALL states with illegal nuclear weapons programs, which puts Israel on the same level as Iran and North Korea..

Easy… The stage will then be set for some legitimate negotiations.

But that’s not what we’re trying to do is it…
We’re really trying to find a way for these global dictators to look like they care, while protecting the prime objective at all costs, preserving supreme US power over the world community.

The country was only split in two when the Arab Palestinians began race riots to drive out the Jewish Palestinians.

It became obvious that the Jewish people were not going to run away, and the British didn’t want to get involved as occupier. So the UK pulled out, and Palestine was split in half by the UN for the sake of peace.

Of course, one side (Cough*Arab nations*Cough) decided it wanted to invade Israel. The Israeli’s fought back and the rest is history.

The only reason things are worse today is because the Arabs never learnt that losing wars means you lose territory as well. And every time they fought with Israel, they lost more land.

The clock cannot be wound back, and the UN doesn’t really care about property claims from fifty years ago.

By: TC Mon, 28 Sep 2009 00:20:38 +0000 You aren’t the only busy person Eric. Most of the time you hit and run, but you made an exception here.

I forgot that only conservatives are antisemitic when they same the same things as you have. My mistake. I forgot the way it works.

It is not relevant if you have Jewish friends and family when it comes to your true beliefs. Not suggesting anything…just saying…But I am sure your Jewish family and friends are not in agreement with you. (I have a feeling you will say otherwise…). It doesn’t matter, just like it doesn’t matter that the Canadian health care system was a “bad idea” which you have argued the contrary with me about. You are just wrong there, I have family who live the Canadian system. Go ahead and call me anti-Canuck. I don’t care either. 😉

I have no dog in this fight. It is all Biblical anyway and I don’t concern myself in the worldly politics of the Jewish state. My point, which you ignored, is that the Isralis have a right to live no matter what anyone thinks about their current status in the world. All the rest is opened to interpretation.

By: Eric H Sun, 27 Sep 2009 18:11:31 +0000 TC and Brian, wow guys I never knew I was antisemetic, thanks for pointing that out. It’s going to come as quite a shock to my Jewish friends and my married into the family aunt. I have always believed that the european Jews needed a place of their own after WWII but you have to admit that taking land from Muslims and giving it to Jews was a bad idea. It was bound to cause problems and it did. So you guys can label me any thing you want, it doesn’t matter to me.
Yes Brian Israel has become a successful and prosperous country and I’m happy for the people who benefit from that. However I still do not see what the US has gained from this relationship. So enlighten me.
Questioning the chosen location of Israel doesn’t make me anymore of an antisemite than opposing Obama makes Brian a racist. Following this logic you could say that people who were opposed to Clinton were anti oral sex.
Sorry if I’m not taking the time to answer your questions, I’m a busy guy.
TC I’m always amazed at your ability to see the true character of peoples hearts through a blog postings, you truly possess a unique gift.

By: brian lee Sun, 27 Sep 2009 06:45:45 +0000 Israel in 60 years have turned a desolate dry piece into a prosperous nation,with a healthy economy and with a highly technical manufacturing base.On the other hand their neighbours even with revenue from their oil fields which were developed by mostly USA have very little apart from this to maintain their populations.If there is a change from fossil fuel energy,then how are these people going to survive? It seems that all their energy is taken up trying to wage war.If Israel were eliminated the whole region would drift back into what they were in the 9th century,tribes fighting amongst themselves.Perhaps it would be better if they learned from the Israel how to develop their countries for the benefit of their people.

By: TC Sat, 26 Sep 2009 15:09:14 +0000 Brian. Eric is clearly antisemitic in his postings although he says he isn’t. No matter how he spins his words, he shows the true character of his heart.

I am taking no position on the advantages or disadvantages of Israel and its place as a nation in the middle east and the world. What I do believe is this, the Israelis have a right to live no matter what people believe about their current status as a nation.

By: brian lee Sat, 26 Sep 2009 14:29:27 +0000 eric stop spinning and answer the two questions please,incidentally you did not respond to Kennedy posting i think you might answer that as well, TC has not posted since and this healthy debate,whether you agree of not,you popinjay.
