The Washington Post has another article about the joint U.S-Israeli effort to rid the world of nuclear weapons.
I do like the general idea that nations like the U.S. and Israel are benevolently trying to rid the earth of nuclear weapons. However both parties maintain large nuclear arsenals so they are plainly just hypocrites.
Depleted Uranium (DU) weapons are also "nuclear weapons" in every sense of the phrase. The abhorrent DU bomb essentially combines nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons into one bomb, when you include the side-effects coming from the manufacture, transport, use, and clean-up operations. Ask the native American people of New Mexico if you doubt that uranium dust has any long-lasting impact on human biology. The U.S., Israel, and other nations still use Depleted Uranium weapons and sell them to any nation with cash or oil to buy them.
Our so-called "leaders" also never miss a chance to say "all options remain on the table" or "we will obliterate you," when instructed to do so by lobbyists and corporations.
