This Deal Is (Literally) Nuclear

The History of Nuclear weapons is relatively short, beginning in world war 2 the united states pioneered research on them. Most of the world has agreed to participate in nuclear non proliferation, and acknowledges the damage and devastation they cause. More countries have participated in and adhered to the Nuclear Non- Proliferation Treaty (NPT) than any other arms limitation in all of history. The United states is the only country to have used a nuclear weapon as an act of aggression in war. This was when they detonated two nuclear bombs on Japan in 1945, seventy years ago. We all watch as Japan continues to be devastated by the effects of Nuclear bombs. 

 The only countries who have not signed this agreement are




South Sudan

And North Korea Redacted its signature in 2003 and tested its nuclear weapons in 2010

Today in the United states there is seemingly endless controversy over the Iran nuclear deal. This phenomena remains isolated in the US. And from within it seems that the deal was conducted solely between the United States and Iran. Contrary to what is being portrayed in US media, the Iran Nuclear Deal was conducted by P5+1 or China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, United States, Germany, and of course Iran. All other nations have greeted this deal with relief and satisfaction, and even put it forward as a model framework for diplomatic solutions in similar crisis areas around the world. 

The reasons the United states puts forward for opposing the deal cite Iran’s position as the world’s gravest threat to world peace. But according to the United States own gallup polling the rest of the world has a different opinion. To everyone minus the united states, it is unanimous that the biggest threat to world peace is the United states. This is proven by the idea that the United states is always entitled to unilaterally decide to use military force against any nation which disagrees with it. The United states stands alone in its opposition to this deal, and the internal debate raises red flags about the United States commitment to world peace, even further.
