    The devil of course will be in the detail and it has to be ratified by Congress before the General Election.

    Its interesting that the Chinese voted against the deal.....I wonder why? ;)

    The USA and Russia has 95% of the worlds nuclear weaponds. This is thousands compare to a few. They are reducing their stoockpile as it is a waste of money and dangerous having so many.

    The weapons are target against nearby enemoes. Pakistan and India, Russia and China. So although I support to abolition of all these weapons a few deterant weapons by India against Pakistan will do little harm.
    No country would be allow to trade weapons to non nuclear states like Iran or North Korea.

    Could the Nuclear Suppliers’ Group stop India from trading in nuclear materials if they wanted to?

    If so, then they obviously have a lot more power than the UN has.

    Let's get them after NK.
