Non-Proliferation Treaty in Quagmire

NEW YORK, NY -- At the United Nations today, it appeared that the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (or NPT) was running into trouble. Delegations from almost 190 countries are meeting to discuss the NPT, but it seems there are problems agreeing on an agenda.

As one might assume, Kofi Annan (Secretary General of the U.N.) and Mohammed ElBaradei (Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency - or IAEA), want to discuss the lack of progress by the United States toward nuclear disarmament. President George W. Bush on the other hand, wants to discuss the threats of impending nuclear capabilities in rogue states such as Iran and North Korea, considering for example that North Korea has withdrawn from the NPT.

"Unless all states, recognize that disarmament, like nonproliferation, requires action from everyone, the goal of general and complete disarmament will remain a distant dream," Annan told the delegates. George Bush was overheard to suggest that a nuclear attack on the U.N. building by terrorists using weapons obtained from a rogue state would pretty much make these important discussions on the agenda issue a moot point.

Not only would it be moot, Kofi would be mute! (Can we make sure some of our senators (d) are in the building too?

These UN clowns are WMD's in and of themselves, because they are totally incapable of doing anything constructive.

'da Bunny,
Yeah, in the encyclopedia next the term WMD is a picture of Kofi Annan and Mohammed ElBaredei.

We don't need it to be a nuclear attack; we could just fly an aeroplane (or two) into the U.N. building...

Heard on Fox this afternoon (Tues.) that Iran says they're continuing with their program, "whether anyone else likes it or not."

Them sounds like fightin' words to me!

Yikes! :o(
