Who Has The Most Nukes, Mrs. Clinton?


Who Has The Most Nukes, Mrs. Clinton?

Of the 20,000 nuclear weapons in the world, US has 9,400 and the Russians 10,000 warheads. Reduce them first before pointing fingers at Pakistan.

DR. SHIREEN M. MAZARI | Tuesday | 1 March 2011 | Press Release



ISLAMABAD, Pakistan—Hillary Clinton once again exposed the duplicity of the United States towards the whole issue of nuclear nonproliferation, in her speech to the Conference on Disarmanet [CD] in Geneva on 28 February 2011.


In the process she also exposed the contradictions in the US approach towards nonproliferation and nuclear fissile material stockpiles.  According to her:


“Nearly 20 years after the end of the Cold War, the world has more than 20,000 nuclear weapons. As I speak to you today, centrifuges around the world are spinning out more enriched uranium, a still significant amount of it to weapons grade. Plutonium is being churned out in reactors and separated from spent fuel in reprocessing plants. The world faces no shortage of ingredients for nuclear bombs. Yet more fissile materials are made every single day.


The question before us today is whether we will – at last – agree to end the dedicated production of fissile material for use in nuclear weapons. Halting production is in the interest of every country, and I urge this conference to end the stalemate and open negotiations on a Fissile Material Cutoff Treaty (FMCT) without further delay.”

A noble thought perhaps but let us look at the hard facts on the ground. Of the 20,000 nuclear weapons she herself referred to, the US has 9,400 and the Russians 10,000 warheads, so we all know who holds the bulk of these dangerous weapons. Out of the US stock, only 4000 await elimination while the Russians are going to eliminate a larger fraction of their warheads. So both the US and Russia have a long way to go before they can be looked at seriously in terms of nuclear weapons disarmament as required under Article VI of the Non Proliferation Treaty (NPT).


In the context of the Fissile Material Cutoff Treaty, or FMCT, the US knows that a cut-off date for stopping production of fissile material will not rid the world of existing stockpiles which is why Pakistan is asking for a Fissile Material Treaty where existing stockpiles are first reduced and then a cut-off date is implemented. Just look at the existing stockpiles that some states hold for adding to their weapons production and, in the case of Japan, for producing nuclear weapons.


Plutonium stocks are as follows (include the total of civilian and military stocks):


–          Russia has estimated stockpile of about 181.7 metric tons;

–          US 91.8 metric tons;

–          India 3.74 metric tons;

–          Japan 36.1 metric tons;

–          Pakistan 0 metric tons at present


Highly Enriched Uranium (HEU) stocks at present are:


–          US 745 metric tons

–          Russia 1282 metric tons;

–          Pakistan 2.6 metric tons;

–          India 1.3 metric tons.


So again, if it seriously wants to reduce the danger of nuclear weapons and fissile material from the globe then the US needs to cut its existing stockpiles along with Russia. It is sheer hypocrisy to point fingers at Pakistan which is truly seeking to reduce existing stockpiles and then a cut-off mechanism.


If one sees the figures on the ground then the Pakistani position is the only rational approach to the fissile material problem while the Clinton histrionics are mere propaganda and reveal the US is least interested in nuclear disarmament and fissile stocks elimination. All that the US demand for an FMCT will do is to stop those who have no stockpiles already from having them while those who have dangerous stockpiles will continue to hold them. This is the farce the US has reduced the issue to today.

    Hey mate I agree. But the elephant in the living room surely has to be Israel. How many have they got? If the numbers are correct with the USA and Russia then you can bet your sweet bippy that Israel has just as many…..C’mon…look at reality. Why do they neither confirm nor deny they have them….This is how Zionism holds the world to ransom as they have nuclear weapons pointed at evry “threat ” in the world…..

    they may be only worried about working units. shelf life is only 20 years max…
    you may have more than them!

    The more they talk of nuclear disarmament. or nonproliferation, the world becomes more unstable as more countries attain nuclear weapons or the nuclear materials to make them. All those talks over decades are just for the naive public to think that these weapons will eventually be eradicated. The only thing that will be eradicated are us. The world marches on to its own destruction as the enormity of evidence demonstrates, all this gibberish about if we do this or if we do that is futile, the inevitable is ahead. As Oppenheimer quoted those infamous words as he watched the first Atomic bomb explode “I have become death, a destroyer of WORLDS.” Thats why they were created.

    Non abbiate paura usciamo dai demiurghi e dagli dei, essi sono i demoni delle realtà virtuali dei sistemi schiavitù cucitici addosso, scrolliamoci dai loro avvinghianti e schiavizzanti sistemi.

    Noi Figli di DIO, si faccia Ritorno al nostro Unico Vero Creatore L’IDDIOUNO, dove il collegamento diretto con il nostro Vero Creatore non ci abbandonerà mai e ci riempirà di Felicità di Amore e ci donerà Protezione Totale.

    Dopo essere ri-approdati alla casa del Padre Nostro prendiamo coscienza di esserci liberati dalle paure che ci erano state indotte dagli schiavizzanti oppressori, vengano essi respinti eternamente nello sprofondo del mare dei cieli.

  5. Mrs Clinton got no nukes, its the US army leaded by high finance, the same gangsters financing the weapons in Pakistan. Where do you got your suposed PhD from?

  6. Pakistan is loosing many friends due to the assesination of the only christian minister doubting about “totally mad islamic laws” and killing of suposed blasphemic woman.
    You better shut down on pro Pakistan news and twists and any other country not respecting the human rights in the first place! How shall we suport such misreable countries and societies uncapable, ignorant or misleaded to see their own hearts?
    Remember always what is upfront to any politic, religion or free economy!
