  • They would be stupid to. Many rogue countries will still seek them. With Iran and Chavez wanting to get them Obama is stupid to be trying this route now.

  • What's the point? India will seek them out no matter if they signed a treaty or not, just like other nations do. No one seems to abide by treatys they signed these days.

  • Hate to break it to you vbruno India already has them and had tested them back in 1974. Along with Pakistan, North Korea and possibly Israel. They also have a stockpile of 100-150 warheads.

  • *sigh* The UN is useless. They do virtually nothing to curb genocide, child slavery or prostitution. They are a toothless tiger. It doesn't matter what treaties people sign, the UN will let them get away with just about anything. If there IS a problem, they always want to US to step in.

  • The UN isn't entirely useless. They are working hard to strip away the rights of parents to choose what's best for their own children (UN Convention on the Rights of the Child), and they're working equally hard to usher in a North American Union, and ultimately, a one-world government.

    To say "useless" would imply that they are impotent. They are very much capable of subverting our sovereignty.
