You’re aiming at the wrong target Dave

Yesterday, at the same time that friends and I were outside the Senedd in Cardiff demonstrating against nuclear weapons, The Times was reporting that Prime Minister David Cameron would support military action against Iran if “sanctions fail to halt the Tehran regime’s pursuit of nuclear weapons”.

Mr C argues that a nuclear-armed Iran would be a threat to Israel and a threat to the world.

Just a minute.  Isn’t this the same David Cameron who is telling us that we (the UK) need our nuclear weapons as a deterrent against attack?

Despite their constant denials, everyone knows that Israel has nuclear weapons.  So why don’t their nuclear weapons act as a deterrent?

Something wrong with the logic here Dave.

The case for action against Iran is being backed by “diplomats” who point out that Iran is currently in breach of five UN resolutions.

The United Nations (General Assembly and Security Council) has adopted more resolutions condemning Israel than all other states combined.

According to the Israel Law Resource Centre, “Israel has violated 28 resolutions of the United Nations Security Council (which are legally binding on member-nations), and almost 100 resolutions of the United Nations General Assembly (which are not binding, but represent the will and understanding of the international community).”

If illegal possession of nuclear weapons and violation of UN resolutions is a basis for action, surely we should be dealing with the worst offenders first?
