    when a country voluntarily signs and ratifies a legally binding international treaty that makes nuclear weapons illegal they have no right too them

    article 2 of the NPT makes acquiring nuclear weapons illegal, this article applies to 185 countries who have signed and ratified this treaty. article 3 mandates the IAEA to oversee this process and the director general reports to the UN security council and the board of governors

    Article II

    Each non-nuclear-weapon State Party to the Treaty undertakes not to receive the transfer from any transferor whatsoever of nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices or of control over such weapons or explosive devices directly, or indirectly; not to manufacture or otherwise acquire nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices; and not to seek or receive any assistance in the manufacture of nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices.

    Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty

    http://www.un.org/disarmament/WMD/Nuclear/pdf/NPTE...

    this treaty was designed to stop the flow of nuclear weapons while still allowing for the peaceful transfer of nuclear power technology (nuclear reactors)

    countries that have signed and ratified the NPT

    iran is a member of the Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty, Iran signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) in 1968 and ratified it in 1970, making Iran's nuclear program subject to IAEA verification. this treaty is legally binding. iran also signed the text of the agreement between iran and the agency for the application of safegaurds in connection with the treaty on the non proliferation of nuclear weapons. this agreement entered force on may 15 1974

    Opened for signature in 1968, the Treaty entered into force in 1970. On 11 May 1995, the Treaty was extended indefinitely. A total of 190 parties have joined the Treaty. More countries have ratified the NPT than any other arms limitation and disarmament agreement.

    this treaty recognizes 5 nuclear powers china, france, russia, america, and the uk. these countries all had nuclear weapons when this treaty came into force. nuclear powers are covered under article 1 and 6 of the NPT

    israel, india, and pakistan never signed or ratified this treaty and are not bound by it, they do not have to submit to IAEA inspectors since they have not signed or ratified this treaty and have no obligations under the NPT

    north koreas disputed withdrawal between the IAEA, UN security council and north korea has lead to 8 UN security council resolutions

    Iran may be a country with a long and illustrious history, but your current government does not.

    That nut job you have for a president is a loose cannon and I would not trust him with a BB gun.

    Nuclear Weapons? No way

    BTW - If you don't like the pressure and the high prices, you can toss the mullahs and the Revolutionary Guard out on their ear.

    You'd be amazed how fast things would get better.

    But you'll have to do it yourselves. You got yourselves into this mess by throwing out the Shah and drinking the mullahs koolaid, and now you'll have to get yourselves out.

    Source(s): Edit - "And we could not do it again because they will kill all our family members" And you wonder why I think your country should not have nuclear weapons? Any government that will murder it's citizens to maintain power has no business messing with nukes!
