India conducts nuclear missile tests



I find this double standard somewhat bizarre. Everyone was rightfully freaking out when North Korea was defiantly conducting nuclear missile tests. Now India does the same thing and no one cares. It’s OK because they’re an ally. It’s not OK. It’s not OK just because we are selling them the nuclear missile technology. It is irresponsible. It is a double standard to freak out about Iran and North Korea having nuclear capabilities while we sell it and promote it to whoever else we want to. That is so wrong.

I understand the dynamics of the balance of power. I also understand the futility of nuclear war and the responsible steps toward nuclear disarmament. Selling nuclear technology and promoting it for profit is so wrong. Worshiping the almighty dollar is self defeating. Greed always consumes itself in the end.

  1. DPRK is unlikely to ever launch on China or Pakistan. India might be good for that. Especially the Paki's. Could come in handy someday. I'm told that pat of the world is overpopulated anyway.

    Jah, just kidding. Sort of.

    The problem with DPRK is that they seem to have a business relationship with the Persians. Test results, bits and pieces, etc., that sort of thing. Kind of bothersome don't you know, given all that "death to the Jews, Israel must be wiped off the map" stuff that ugly little midget in Tehran keeps spouting. Fortunately someone on a motorbike keeps putting MAIED's on the cars of his nuclear scientist's as they drive to work, dampens the enthusiasm for mischief a bit, at least one hopes so....
