I hear a lot of hatin' on Iran because they violate the nuclear NPT, thus they should be sanctioned, bombed etc. The United States also violates the nuclear NPT.. They should be sanctioned too (but they can't be because they sit on the UN security council thus can do anything with impunity).. The treaty specifically calls for all nuclear weapon state signatories to liquidate their arsenel. Yet the United States maintains their largest ever, and the worlds largest stockpile of modern nuclear weapons.
