Important International nuclear non-porliferation treaty scuttled. Ratz!

Does what you believe to be true depend on were you happen to live?

An important agreement on nuclear non-proliferation has been scuttled by objections from Canada, England, and the United States.  Who is responsible for the failure of this important document?

Here are four views. Take your pick.  My belief is that the US insistence on protecting Israel's nuclear arsenal from international inspection is absurd, and absurdity has it way with us, as it often does.

Someday US elections will not turn on radical ultra-Orthodox Jewish voters, and we -- and Russia and all the rest -- can find something else to be absurd about.

Oh.  You remember what this is all about.  My mistake.  Seems like we social animals have a short near-term memory.

And Saudi destruction of yemeni youngmen, women, children continues apace.  USA, pick your allies with more wisdom than traditional geopolitics permits!
