    Correction; The CTBTO isn’t ‘making’ the world a safer-place, but ‘trying’
    to make it safe as it’s hamstrung until the treaty is signed (which none of
    those other nations will even consider until the USA signs)!

  10. Great Wolf says:

    Wouldn’t China, India, USA and rest of the non signatory countries, alone
    make up the majority of world population. If so, is the world actually
    waiting for these countries to sign the treaty?

    Alien 2: don’t worry, they have it pointed at themselves.
    Alien 3: but they ain’t afraid to detonate it anywhere else. They tried to
    explode one on the moon.

    …this is some good facts.

    As soon as you can assure that there won’t be big organizations that can
    carry a nuclear threat (I’m looking at you, middle eastern terrorist
    organizations) then the nuclear superpowers will be happy to sign your
    treaty. But you can’t. And you never will. The fact that the un can’t
    contain the threat after decades of work proves this. The Russians have
    been fighting this battle way longer than anybody and even they can’t
    control it, which is saying something considering how much land they can
    control and still keep monitoring. Give me a solution. One that will really
    Oh, and saying “jobs” doesn’t work. It’s been tried throughout history. The
    plan and principle fails every time.
