UN treaty to ban nuclear weapons to enter into force

The US and major nuclear powers have strongly criticized a recent move by the United Nations, wherein the UN introduced a treaty, ratified by 50 member nations, seeking to ban nuclear weapons. The treaty has been hailed by anti-nuclear activists. Antonio Guterres, the UN Secretary General saluted ’the instrumental work’ of civil society in facilitating negotiations and pushing for ratification.

Ten years in, when China reveals that it has the largest nuclear arsenal on the planet and is prepared to turn the rest of the world into a charcoal briquette, this treaty will help everyone sleep soundly at night.

A treaty not worth the paper its printed on and which is completely unenforceable. Nuclear Weapons exist today as the ultimate "don't even think about it." No sane world leader would use them except as retaliation for another nuclear launch. Of course there are insane world leaders and terrorist groups to worry about. My point is that pandora's box has been opened. If a country or group wants a nuclear weapon there isn't all the much you can do to stop them. Trying to ban nuclear weapons will have the same result as banning firearms: the only people who will have them are the people who don't care about breaking the law and who you really don't want to have such weapons. It is better that we limit the number of nuclear weapons and agree never to use them lest they be used on whoever uses them.

The answer is the same as the 'gun ban' question. "Nuclear weapons (guns), what nuclear weapons (guns) ? We got rid of them a long time ago. Got a warrant? No? Have a nice day"
