Clinton: The Mideast must be freed of nuclear weapons

Except for IsraHell, she means. US has 5,113 launch-ready nukes Iran O, Nought, Zilch, Nada. (Ooops did I speak all these Languages?)

Military Dominance: Obama's Fake Nuclear Disarmament Initiative allows the U.S. to Assert its Global Military Hegemony

I say... I say: The Americas must be free of all nuclear weapons NOW. We must disarm the only nuclear terrorist that have used nukes in Japan and elsewhere... Oh wait I am not the only one saying it: Iran wants US nukes dismantled

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday declared the need for a Middle East free of nuclear weapons, telling the United Nations General Assembly that the U.S. was '"prepared to support practical measures for achieving that objective".

"We support efforts to realize the goal of a weapons-of-mass-destruction-free-zone in the Middle East in accordance with the 1995 Middle East resolution," Clinton told delegates at the opening of a month-long review conference of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty in New York.

"The Middle East may present the greatest threat of nuclear proliferation in the world today."

Clinton added that several states in the region had failed to conform to the international non-proliferation treaty, known as the NPT.

She said: "Adherence to the NPT is not universal. And a few countries that are parties to the NPT have violated their treaty obligations. But in spite of these difficulties, we want to reaffirm our commitment to the objective of a Middle East free of weapons of mass destruction, and we are prepared to support practical measures for achieving that objective."

Israel, which is widely believed to have nuclear weapons, is the only country in the Middle East not to have signed the treaty and, along with India and Pakistan, one of only three countries worldwide outside the agreement. Iran, though a signatory, is accused by the West of flouting treaty requirements to disclose its nuclear activities.

In her speech, Clinton took a strong line against Iran, saying its nuclear ambitions put the world at risk and calling on the global community to hold Tehran to account.

"Iran will do whatever it can to divert attention away from its own record in an attempt to evade accountability," Clinton told delegates to the conference, where the dispute over Iran's nuclear program has seized center stage.

"Iran is the only country represented in this hall that has beenf ound by the IAEA board of governors to be currently in noncompliance with its nuclear safeguard obligations."

She added: "The only one. It has defied the UN Security Council and the IAEA and placed the future of the non-proliferation regime in jeopardy. And that is why it is facing increasing isolation and pressure from the international community.

"But Iran will not succeed in its efforts to divert and divide.The United States and the great majority of the nations represented here come to this conference with a much larger agenda: to strengthen a global non-proliferation regime that advances the security of all nations, to advance both our rights and our responsibilities.," said Clinton.

U.S. President Barack Obama, meanwhile, said countries that ignore their obligations under the NPT would find themselves less secure and more isolated.

Obama did not mention Iran by name in his statement which came after the U.S. delegation walked out of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's address to the 189 signatories of the 1970 Treaty hours.

"Nations that ignore their obligations find themselves less secure, less prosperous and more isolated. That is the choice nations must make," Obama said.

Coinciding with Clinton's address, the Obama administration released a more precise accounting of the U.S. nuclear arsenal Monday, military and other U.S. officials said, shedding new light on a secretive arsenal born in the Cold War and now

There's more crap of course @
