Does America have right to stop another sovereign state such as North Korea or Iran to develop and posses nuclear weapons. We may not like it, and I know they are a bit strange but does that still give us the right. If the western world feel they are not comfortable with these countries, and their weapons, shouldn't It been taken care of through the UN?

America is the worlds policeman. We are in a situation now and have been for a number of decades where we as a species have the capability of annihilating ourselves via nuclear weapons. Since WW2, for better or for worse America has policed the world to try to manage this.

However distasteful the idea is of being policed by the USA, ask what might have been if say the USSR or for that matter the Nazi's had prevailed instead, let alone what might still happen if any of a number of unstable countries gain these weapons.

The Roman Empire also had its days, all empires come and go, the US will also, probably soon.

I agree. Let us assume it happens this year. What events do you foresee occurring and by whom?
