Finally, someone in the UN pointing out the hypocracy of talking war over a country that doesn't even have nukes, while the US and other Western powers have thousands on the ready.

Quoting the words of Hans Blix, former chief weapons inspector in the UN:

"While it's desirable that the foreign ministers talk about Iran, they don't seem to devote any thought to the fact that there are still some 27,000 real nuclear weapons in the United States, Russia and other states, and that many of these are on hair-trigger alert.
Nor do the ministers seem to realize that the determination they express to reduce the nuclear threat is diminished by their failure to take seriously their commitment, made within the framework of the NPT, to move toward the reduction and elimination of their own nuclear arsenals."
