It’s OK to have WMD if you’re British

So tonight in Parliament they’re discussing the renewal of Trident or in other words: They’re discussing building new Weapons of Mass Destruction. We went to war in Iraq because Saddam Hussein *might* have some WMD (even though they knew full well that he didn’t have any). If they vote yes tonight the UK Government WILL be building WMD. We signed the Non Proliferation Treaty…

“The Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, commonly known as the Non-Proliferation Treaty or NPT, is an international treaty whose objective is to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons and weapons technology, to promote cooperation in the peaceful uses of nuclear energy, and to further the goal of achieving nuclear disarmament and general and complete disarmament.”

We signed a treaty for the “complete disarmament” of nuclear weapons so why the hell are we discussing building new ones?????
