The World’s First Nuclear Abandonment Agreement... Abandoned

The USA is not going to get an honest nuclear deal with Iran, or anyone else in the world, because our president has refused to enforce the Budapest Memorandum on Security Assurances, the one which the USA, Great Britain, Ukraine, and Russia signed. The one that guaranteed Ukraine’s territorial integrity would be respected if they gave up their nukes.

This was the first Nuclear Abandonment Agreement in History! Ukraine gave up over 1,200 nukes for that promise!

Well, we can forget about anyone else ever giving up their nukes based on an agreement. Barack Obama has once again sent the very strong message that agreements (like the Constitution, and the Budapest Memorandum on Security Assurances) are not worth anything to him; that if you give up your nukes or your nuke programs, you are just sh*t-out-of-luck. So why would Iran, or anyone else, abandon their programs, give up or reduce the number of their nukes.

So it looks like the nuke race is on... again. Some legacy.

And Obama complains about the mess George Bush left for him to clean up.
