Alexander Cockburn and the hypocrisy of ‘Non-Proliferation’

Cockburn, like top foreign affairs analyst Kenneth N. Waltz, author of “Why Iran Should Get the Bomb” (Foreign Affairs, July/August 2012) saw that nuclear balancing means stability, while asymmetrical nuclear capabilities make it more likely that the bombs will go off. Therefore, the whole idea of “nuclear non-proliferation” is absurd. If nuclear weapons are monopolized in a few hands, those hands will eventually cast the bombs at opponents who cannot retaliate; whereas if every country could credibly threaten to annihilate any prospective attacker, aggression would be impossible, and peace would reign.

The inescapable conclusion: Every peace-loving person should be working as hard as possible to make sure that nations like Iran, Syria, North Korea, Venezuela, Cuba, and others threatened with aggression should have a robust nuclear capacity. Every nation should have the ability to completely annihilate any prospective attacker.
And though this statement sounds crazy at first glance, anyone who considers it long and hard enough will conclude that it harbors a great, unspeakable truth.
We are living in a hellish time: Neocon neo-Nazis have torn up the judgment of Nuremburg, which deemed aggression the supreme war crime, in order to wage aggressive war without end on the entire world.
