Nuclear weapons are abhorrent in anyone’s hands.
Imagine if the Biological Weapons Convention said that polio and small pox as weapons are banned universally but the plague as a weapon can be brandished and held at the ready by nine countries because these special countries are uniquely moral, restrained, trustworthy, and responsible.
Such is the incoherence in which the world is living under the sword of nuclear annihilation.
