Are they violating it? I see opinions both ways on that. Certainly nothing from the UN or treaty signatories that states the UK is in violation. I also never stated "inconsequential" - but you do you.Can't agree with that. They have tampered with the NPT which will weaken the treaty for all signatories and potential signatories. What kind of politics does a person need to see a violation of the biggest treaty in world history as inconsequential?
One thing that is very clear is that the UK hasn't invaded a neighbor, killed tens of thousands, illegally annexed land, and is now threatening to defend it with nuclear weapons.
I know which one I think is more dangerous to global peace, but for some reason, peaceniks always think Russia can do no wrong.
