On October 9, 2006, North Korea announced that it had successfully completed its first nuclear missle test. This caused major controversy across the globe, particuarly in America. George W. Bush is calling this test an outrage, and a threat to international security. He has called for North Korea to disarm its nuclear weapons capable of mass destruction. I think it's fair enough to ask that North Korea discontinue its creation of weapons and to stop testing, but i think its slightly hypocritical for Bush to say that testing nukes is bad. America have tested several nuclear weapons in the past, some of them with detrimental effects. Why is it that America is allowed to have and test nukes, while it is apparently a crime for other countries to have them? One of George Bush's reasons for going to war against Iraq was the threat of weapons of mass destruction. What did America use to fight Iraq? North Korea shouldn't have nukes, and they shouldn't test them. In fact, no country should have nukes, or weapons of mass destruction of any kind, and they shouldn't be allowed to test them. discuss.
