The Question Club
I've recently come to a conclusion that seems to be unpopular, but with which I can find no flaws. Bush threatened Iraq with violence if they did not allow weapons inspections in their country. It is widely accepted that one reason that we attacked Iraq was the possibility that they were hiding nuclear weapons from us, and we wanted to prevent a possible future attack.
My question is.... why shouldn't Iraq be allowed to have nuclear weapons? The United States enjoys the ability to make and house nuclear bombs, as well as giving nuclear weapons to Israel. Doesn't Iraq deserve the same privilege? They have not directly threatened to use them on us, and if they did in fact attempt to do so, it would be absolute suicide. Just because we disagree with some of the actions of the nation, what right do we have to deny them the same protection we have?
