US: Iran’s Civilian Program the Greatest Threat to Nuclear NPT

• Jason Ditz via

US Assistant Secretary for International Security and Nonproliferation Tom Countryman has condemned Iran’s civilian nuclear program again, dubbing it the greatest threat to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) in the world today.

The Obama Administration has a somewhat checkered history with regards to the NPT, signing a declaration under the treaty for a nuclear free Middle East and then loudly condemning that declaration within hours of signing it.

The problem with a nuclear-free Mideast has never been Iran, of course, as the nation has loudly endorsed such plans. Rather it is US ally Israel, which has refused to sign the NPT at all, and has claimed that even asking them to do so is a violation of international law.
