There Is No Moral Equivalence Between Us and Them

Multiculturalists and one-worlders in the USA often speak derisively about the efforts of every U.S. president to prevent nations run by madmen, such as Iraq, Iran and North Korea, from acquiring nuclear weapons. They somehow see some kind of moral equivalence in this critical problem, saying, “We have weapons, why shouldn’t they?”.

For example, here are some excerpts from an article in the left wing publication, “Counterpunch” (written by a Muslim author):

“He (President Bush) is the commander-in-chief of a military force that not only possesses and maintains nearly 10,000 nuclear weapons but also boasts an array of weapons of mass destruction, including chemical and biological arsenals. The American position on nuclear weapons is rife with hypocrisy and layered with double standards….

Washington continues to maintain close relations with such nations as India, Pakistan, and Israel that have refused to sign the nuclear nonproliferation treaty and are widely known to possess significant nuclear arsenals. Israel is reputed to have anywhere between 50-200 illegal nukes. Yet the Bush administration is determined to intimidate and punish nations that evidently do not have nuclear weapons but only nuclear ambitions, such as Iran and Iraq. The nuclear ambitions of these two nations are not unlike those that spurred India, Israel, and Pakistan to develop their own nukes.” Counterpunch

Only fairly recently did Americans learn of how close both Hitler’s Germany and Tojo’s Japan came to acquiring atomic weapons; actually the race was so close we have to thank God that we won. We had no control over the gaining of nuclear weapons by India and Pakistan, and every thoughtful and decent person is openly or quietly comforted that Israel undoubtedly possesses a nuclear arsenal. Clearly it may someday soon be the only thing saving it (Israel) from extermination by Muslim madmen.

When Islamic terrorists are murdering thousands of non-Muslims around the world almost routinely on a daily basis, and when the leaders of Iran and North Korea are plotting and proclaiming the nuclear destruction of their “enemies” (thank God not Iraq any more), we must do everything in our power to stop them from acquiring such weapons. I can only hope we now have intelligence assets in place now that can warn us when non-military measures have fallen short and military strikes become necessary. Until then I hope that the civilized world will do everything in its power to prevent that from ever happening.

It absolutely IS a double standard...and it's a valid arguement why us, not them..

Further, I 100% support the double criteria!

Why us and not them, Steve? Do I correctly understand your position? Do you have no sense of self preservation? You have sworn enemies. Enemies who don't have the age old motivation of land acquisition or political expansion (which can be negotiated), but are simply trying to conquer the world for their god--at any cost and by any means.
Not long ago, some terrorists put a small child in a car bomb so no one would suspect. Then they walked off and detonated it. Yeah, Let's give 'em all nukes! After all, we have them, don't we?
