"If another country were planning to develop a new nuclear weapon and contemplating pre-emptive strikes against a list of non-nuclear powers, Washington would rightly label that nation a dangerous rogue state."

-- New York Times editorial, March 12, 200

In April, the parties to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), the world's most important international agreement to achieve nonproliferation and nuclear disarmament, will meet at the United Nations to review progress toward achieving the goals of the treaty.

What they will find is that the United States is defying the international community by flagrantly flouting the commitments it has made in the treaty.

Under the treaty, the United States is supposed to be moving toward nuclear disarmament, but the Bush administration is going in the other direction.

First, it has given notice of its intention to withdraw from the 1972 Anti-Ballistic Missile (ABM) treaty in order to unilaterally pursue missile defenses and the weaponization of outer space.

Second, the administration has failed to push for ratification of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, and made plans to shorten the time needed to resume underground nuclear testing.

Third, it has developed contingency plans to use nuclear weapons against at least seven countries, five of which do not possess nuclear weapons and are parties to the NPT.
