IRAN IS NOT OUR ENEMY: NUCLEAR WEAPONS PROLIFERATION IS: ESTABLISH NUCLEAR WEAPONS-FREE ZONES
The US should push for Nuclear Weapons Free Zones in the Middle East, in Africa, in the Pacific and elsewhere. Instead, Washington exempts itself! and would exempt Israel from the ME Zone, it blocks a Pacific NWFZ by excluding its Pacific dependencies, and its immense base in Diego Garcia undermines the NWFZ established by the African Union, All as the result of the false doctrine of US “exceptionallism,” claiming our “virtuous” goals justify double standards.
