Unanimous! Un Resolution Aims For Nuclear-free World

Recommended Posts

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/po...ld-1792553.html

With Barack Obama presiding, the UN Security Council unanimously approved a resolution today aimed at ridding the world of nuclear weapons.

Russia, China and developing nations supported the U.S.-sponsored measure, giving it global clout and strong political backing.

The resolution calls for stepped up efforts to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons, promote disarmament and "reduce the risk of nuclear terrorism."

It was only the fifth time the Security Council met at summit level since the U.N. was founded in 1945. And Obama was the first American president to preside over a Security Council summit, gaveling the meeting into session and announcing that "the draft resolution has been adopted unanimously."

"The historic resolution we just adopted enshrines our shared commitment to a goal of a world without nuclear weapons," Obama said immediately after the vote. "And it brings Security Council agreement on a broad framework for action to reduce nuclear dangers as we work toward that goal."

Just one nuclear weapon set off in a major city could cause major destruction, Obama said.

Thank god Ponzi Brown wasn't presiding we'd all be facing nuclear holocaust now. He'd have press the wrong button and started a war.

At least now he can say he's not cutting to save money, but because it's the right thing to do and in no way because the UK is bankrupt.

Yeah cos no tin-pot dictator would develop a crude a-bomb if this goes through would they?

What are they really up to? No way in this world that USSR/USA/EU/PRC will get rid of nukes.

The solution to a huge reccession is a great big war.

But

You can't have a great big war if there are nukes about.

So

Lets get rid of the nukes and we can have a great big war .

Who against?

People who won't let go over their nuclear weapons, of course?

Hello, Iran.

Hello, Iran.

Injin, normally you and I disagree strongly ... but at this juncture: +1

Sadly cynical but I, too, have such huge suspicions ...

Hello, Iran.

Hello Afghanistan. Give up Osama or we will smite you down.

Hello Iraq. Give up your WMD or we will smite you down.

Hello Iran. Give up your nukes, or else we will nuke you.

Hmm.. I see a pattern emerging..

Hello <Insert oil-rich nation here>. <Insert made-up reason for aggression here> or we will smite you down.

Hello, Iran.

A great big war wouldn't just be Iran.

We need Iran, North Korea etc.....

Can we afford a great big war having no money?

War is a good way to stimulate the economy (justify massive public expenditure)?
