Iran “breaking the rules all* nations must follow”

* not really. but doesn’t it sound even-handed?

So this General Assembly will be all about rattling sabres at Iran for not-yet-existing nuclear weapons, and for  “breaking the rules all nations must follow.” Well, not ALL nations.

There is one county in the middle east that has a lot of  (up to 400) thermonuclear devices, and a large middle finger extended to anyone who wants to say anything about it.

VIENNA (Reuters) – Arab states in the U.N. nuclear assembly on Friday won narrow approval of a resolution urging Israel to put all its atomic sites under U.N. inspection and join the Non-Proliferation Treaty.

The Jewish state deplored the measure for singling it out while many of its Islamic neighbors remained hostile to its existence, and said it would not cooperate with it.

The non-binding resolution, which passed for the first time in 18 years of attempts thanks to more developing nation votes, voiced concern about “Israeli nuclear capabilities” and urged the International Atomic Energy Agency to tackle the issue.

Israel is one of only three countries worldwide along with India and Pakistan outside the nuclear NPT and is widely assumed to have the Middle East’s only atomic arsenal, though it has never confirmed or denied it.

I love this: “Mr. Obama said that the Iranian nuclear program ‘represents a direct challenge to the basic foundation of the nonproliferation regime.”’ Guess what? The U.S. has obligations under the NPT. The “Second Pillar: Disarmament.” How’s that goin’? How much disarming have WE done?
