Now don’t get me wrong, I’m all for this deal, as I understand it. But why should we, or Russia, expect or insist that other sovereign nations relinquish their most powerful weapons of war when we hold onto our nuclear arsenal as though we are the worlds conscience? Chemicals weapons are no more destructive, and in many ways less, than nuclear warheads. Chemical weapons are cheaper and easier to produce, which can serve to put smaller countries like Syria on equal grounds with larger countries if war was to break out, is that why we want them disarmed, so we continue to have the biggest stick? Although I think disarmament is a good way to go, this seems like two bullies on the playground threatening an up and coming playmate if he dares to try to fight back. What do you think?
