The United States boycotted the Oslo conference and is refusing to participate in the UN disarmament working group. The Middle East conference was postponed indefinitely. And the Administration has been silent on the High-Level Disarmament Meeting.

Thank you David, it's too bad that C2 can't select stories from C2 submissions for the 'We Recommend' instead of Man Finds His Late Grandma Reading the Newspaper and Turtle Swims Free. Those links do not go to our great C2 membership that offers stories overlooked by the mainstream media.

Whoops my bad guess the turtle one is a C2 story......however, the rest are not. Why can't C2 promote it's own stories, like this one and others that are truly needing to be seen. Stories on TPP, GMO's, so on and so forth that will affect our lives, our livings, our families.....we need help in saving our butts!

Though I doubt that the US would give up nuclear weapons, I do hope it will. So signed and notes.

Noted. Signed. It would also be good if the US lived up to its obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention and gave UN inspectors access to US chemical weapons facilities and stockpiles, so that these WMD's could be secured and destroyed. As for nukes, besides surrendering its nuclear stockpiles to international forces for destruction, the US should be encouraged to lean upon its ally, India, to give up its development program of medium and long-range missiles. By any measure, we cannot afford nuclear war anywhere on this planet.

Thanks to those who have signed this petition. Nuclear weapons will never solve the world' problems. Nor will chemical weapons. I find it slightly amusing (hypocritical) that the US wants Syria to destroy its chemical weapons...

"We're Obsessed With Syria -- But the Countries With Chemical Weapons Might Surprise You."

The U.S. government keeps approximately 2,611 tons of mustard gas in a facility in Colorado, and 524 tons of a spectrum of chemical weapons--including deadly nerve agent Sarin--in a facility in Kentucky, despite commitments to have already destroyed them.

Almost all of the civilian deaths in Syria Were caused by traditional weapons, not gas, supplied to the rebels by the USA. Any Questions?.

Thanks for the article David..signed with pleasure.."
"The U.S. government keeps approximately 2,611 tons of mustard gas in a facility in Colorado, and 524 tons of a spectrum of chemical weapons--including deadly nerve agent Sarin--in a facility in Kentucky, despite commitments to have already destroyed them". Why destroy perfectly good weapons when you can sell them..another example of the USofA's "Free Trade Agreements and a Level Playing Field" It's Trade (Commerce) not War...some people..really... supply and demand..now who creates that demand?

"Almost all of the civilian deaths in Syria Were caused by traditional weapons, not gas, supplied to the rebels by the USA". David being a fellow Australian you would really appreciate this:

SMH, Sept 28 from our new Foreign Affairs Minister..Julie Bishop..making her debut chairing the UNSC in New York on Friday "The provisional agenda for this meeting is" she said, "small arms", before giving another strong bang of her gavel. The 57 yr old could not have hoped for a better outcome as the council adopted a landmark resolution on small arms, praising Australia as it noted the council had never addressed the issue of small arms and light weapons until now" ..you know that Paul Kelly song and Mabo "from little things, big things grow" If the US won't or refuses to let go of IT'S nuclear weapons then it up to the rest of the world..to force them....Sanctions anyone?

I am indeed lucky that I live in a Nuclear Weapons Free Zone. That does not mean we are not subject to the effects of nuclear weapons, but we made, decades ago, a choice not to have nuclear weapons in our city --- Metro Vancouver.

The US is the biggest & most aggressive bully in the world. They have proved time & again that they are not interested in participating in any disarmament programmes as they will also be subjected to same. It's a case of "Do as we tell you to do, not as we do".
