    Swali hili limekuwa gumzo sana midomoni mwa watu.

    Na kimsingi haliko addressed: why should Iran not be allowed to develop nuclear weapons? States with functional nuclear weapons systems don’t get attacked by other states. Why should Iran not be allowed to acquire this ultimate weapon of self-defence? The states which are in the van in pressurising Iran – the US, the UK and France – wote hao wana hizo silaha za nyuklia na have all means of delivering them to any part of the globe.

    Regional nuclear free zones used to be in vogue. Security Council resolution 687 (paragraph 14) declared the disarmament of Iraq to be the first step in establishing such a zone in the Middle East. But there has been no urgency on the part of the US/UK to extend their disarming mission in the Middle East from Iraq to the one state, ie Israel, that has lots of real weapons of mass destruction and the means of delivering them to any part of the Middle East, including Iran. So why is Israel allowed to have nuclear weapons, but its near neighbour Iran is forbidden? Clearly, a double standard is being applied.

    The technical excuse for the enforcement of this double standard is that Iran signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty in 1968, when the Shah was in power, but Israel (and India and Pakistan) had the good sense not to. So Israel broke no treaty obligations in developing nuclear weapons (and neither did India or Pakistan), but Iran is in breach of the Treaty, if it is developing nuclear weapons. Here, it should be emphasised that the Treaty does not proscribe the enrichment of uranium, merely, the manufacture of nuclear weapons or their acquisition from other parties.

    The Treaty is highly discriminatory in favour of the states that had nuclear weapons in 1968 – the US, the UK, France, the Soviet Union and China – since they were not obliged to give up nuclear weapons, whereas non-nuclear states – if they sign the Treaty – are obliged not to acquire any of these weapons, which are the ultimate guarantee of a state’s continued existence in the modern world.

    The International Atomic Energy Commission (IAEA) is responsible for policing the Treaty. Each non-nuclear signatory to the Treaty is required to negotiate a “safeguards” agreement with the IAEA in respect of its civil nuclear activities, the purpose of which is to allow the IAEA to confirm by inspection that it is not engaging in weapons-related activity. This is why there is so much ongoing “dialogue” between the IAEA and Iran.

    In theory, a signatory state may withdraw from the Treaty, but that would give the game away and invite other states to get their retaliation in first. So, if a state that has signed the Treaty is determined to develop nuclear weapons, its only practical option is hide its manufacturing plants from IAEA inspectors, and to bury them deep as a protection against attack from the air.

    Karibuni :)

    Imagine Osama akiwa na Nyuklia, hii dunia itabaki salama? Watu wengine wanashabikia tu kwamba Iran iwe na silaha za nyuklia, they don't go beyond that!

    Why should you a nation of mad Fanatics like Iran be allowed to posses Nuclear weapons?
    These guys are suicidal in nature and they love death more than life, why should they be given an opportunity and ability to kill millions?

    Not to get in the middle of firefight here, but personally I don't think America, NATO or any of these nuclear-power nations are in a position to tell Iran, or any nation for that matter, about nuclear weapons. See, this international affairs drama is a game, some people are so caught up in one-side's version of truth, they think the other side represent anything else but the truth, and that's what you are going to see here.

    The world and tactics of warfare have changes so much over the last few decades in such a way, that it doesn't even make sense to possess nuclear weapons. Barack Obama in one of the Presidential Debate last year said once Iran gets nuclear weapons that will be a game changer, those were his own words. America is still trying to catch up with her enemies tactics. You will see the rise of more mercenary armies like Blackwater, maybe after CIA has been found to be either outdated or infiltated (interesting that Al-Qaeda operates just like them).

    But Iran is demanding it kwa matumizi salama kama umeme n.k.
    Hivi hata Tanzania ikitaka hiyo nuke kwa maswala ya kawaida pia haiwezi pata?
