The Nuclear Club and Iran

The Newsweek cover story about Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran makes interesting reading. One can understand that the UN and super powers are distrustful of his statement that "he does not want nuclear weapons". The nations known to possess nuclear weapons are: USA, UK, Russia (former USSR), France, China, India, and Pakistan. Pakistan was actively involved in exporting nuclear technology to rogue nations, including Iran, Libya, and N. Korea, but it is now one of our allies in the war against terror; all past sins forgiven. The US readily accepted Pakistan's explanation that it was Dr. A.Q. Khan, head of the nuclear weapons program, who single-handedly carried out the technology exports ! For some mysterious reasons possession of nuclear weapons by Israel is not mentioned by members of the nuclear club. Israel is, unofficially, a member. Wink wink, nod nod. It is the old "my enemy's enemy is my friend" kind of thing. So, can Ahmadinejad be trusted ? Perhaps not but he is not the only fanatic currently in power as head of a state. There are many others.
