Professor Kirstein Criticises Bush nuclear policy in Gulf News

Gulf News is published in Dubai, U.A.E. and restricts its letters to a few paragraphs and edits to a more pedestrian word usage. Yet my effort to depict the Bush administration’s reckless and inconsistent approach to nuclear proliferation is hopefully apparent.

What a hypocrisy!

The George W. Bush administration should be condemned for its hypocrisy. The regime is demanding that Iran bury its nuclear ambitions but is silent on Israel’s nuclear weapons.

It is encouraging India to develop nuclear weapons despite its refusal to ratify the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, but invaded Iraq which had no nuclear deterrent capacity and had ratified the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

The US is not interested in a non-nuclear world but only in those countries that play its geostrategic games.
