U.S., France, U.K. Support Consensus-Based CD? Please . . .Posted: March 6, 2013
This is such B.S. Do you really think that if this initative was something the U.S., U.K. and France were actually interested in pursuing, that they would let the lack of complete consensus in the international community stand in their way? Anybody remember the PSI? The 2003 Iraq war? Coalitions of the wiling are their proven M.O when they want something done but can’t convince everyone/anyone else it’s a good idea. This is just straight stonewalling, and not wanting to progress the disarmament agenda, and so objecting to any process that might actually put pressure on them to produce real disarmament results. For those interested, in my 2011 book I go through an analysis of Article VI of the NPT in detail and conclude that all five NPT nuclear weapon states are in breach of their Article VI obligations. And things like this are a big part of it.
