by Chuck Mann Greensboro
I think it would be great if the Syrian dictatorship was to give up its chemical weapons. But what about other countries in the Middle East? Israel and Pakistan have chemical and nuclear weapons of mass destruction.
Shouldn't they have to give up these weapons as well?
The governments of Russia and the United States have more weapons of mass destruction than all the other countries combined. If using weapons of mass destruction is a war crime, then why should any country have these weapons?
As long as some countries have these weapons, others will try to obtain them as well.
Oh by the way, was it a war crime when the United States government dropped nuclear weapons on Japan, or is our country exempt from war crimes?
