Libya crash pushed the world 'look' brink 'World War' No. 3?
The collapse of the Gaddafi regime posed a question that whether the military can block bombing North African country if the former leader Gaddafi does not accept to give up its nuclear program.
The decision to abandon wrong?
Less than a week after U.S. forces detained Iraqi President Saddam Hussein in late 2003, Libya abandoned its nuclear weapons research and weapons of mass damage, receiving international inspectors, Treaty banning nuclear proliferation and chemical weapons ban.
This decision of President Gaddafi in the West very warm welcome.
"Colonel Gaddafi's commitment to making our nation safer and our world more peaceful. The leader abandon the pursuit of nuclear weapons, biology and chemistry will find a path to better relations with the United States and other countries, "said White House when George Bush declared.
Meanwhile, said: "This decision allows Libya to return to the international community. It also shows that countries can abandon programs of their secret weapons voluntarily and peace. "
Following are the words hailed the lifting of a series of international sanctions against Libya, North African countries that also no less happy.
However, four years later, he angered Gaddafi declared his country did not receive adequate compensation for the decision to abandon nuclear weapons in 2003. According to leaders of Libya, the West reneged convert nuclear weapons programs of Libya into civilian energy program.
Not only that, eight years after the president declared Libya to abandon its nuclear program, the West is conducting a campaign of military intervention to overthrow the regime's leaders.
Some sources even said that the government time to accept Gaddafi abandoned nuclear weapons closer to the West is also the time when these countries do not hesitate to plan to overthrow Gaddafi.
Alarm bells ring
Could not confirm whether this is a brilliant lesson for other countries in the world but one thing is certain that the departure of Mr Gaddafi made the country unsafe to live in the property as desire for nuclear weapons ensure national security. That means that the ambitious non-proliferation of nuclear weapons, Obama is really being challenged.
Obama statement on the goal of building a world without nuclear weapons on the grounds that their viewpoints to ensure national security with nuclear weapons obsolete by now that thought can only existed under the Cold War.
However, in reality, the reason to pursue nuclear programs of countries today is no different than the Cold War, it is to create a shield for national sovereignty.
From 1945 to 1991, nuclear weapons has always been to secure the world's No. 1. The national ownership of nuclear weapons as America, Russia, Britain, France and China to prevent successful military attacks on its territory in order.
This fact makes the country has no weapons of mass destruction is to draw a conclusion that nuclear weapons bring security to the country owns it. That meant no nuclear weapons would be dangerous.
Therefore, the world form the two sets of conflicting ideas. The first point that the only solution to ensure national security is to find ways to get the technology for producing nuclear bombs while in the hands of this weapon to prevent the spread of it.
To "reconcile" two streams of thought, the Non-Proliferation Treaty nuclear weapons (NPT) came into being in 1970, which encourages countries owning nuclear weapons technology transfer peaceful nuclear for countries not to count this weapon.
The main objective of this treaty is to get the disarmament commitment of all parties. However, countries with nuclear weapons in the hands not want that. Some countries, like Israel, India and Pakistan remain indifferent to this treaty to be able to unleash pursue nuclear programs of their own. Meanwhile, a number of other countries to covertly access to research technologies for the production of atomic weapons.
After the Soviet Union disintegrated, the nuclear disarmament promising start. Ukraine, Kazakhstan and South Africa officially declared nuclear weapons disposal. After that, many countries do not own property and nuclear weapons make the same commitment to an ambitious but seems confused about the disarmament goals of the NPT.
Ambitious disarmament was later reinvigorated with the launch of a nuclear free zone in South America and Africa, as well as arms reduction agreement between Russia and the United States.
However, non-proliferation objectives of nuclear weapons has continued to be threatened by contradictory actions of big countries. For many different reasons, these countries attacked a number of countries without nuclear weapons, such as Yugoslavia, Iraq and Libya.
Meanwhile, the countries owning nuclear weapons like North Korea and Pakistan did not attack. Not only that, thanks to weapons of mass destruction in the hands that they obtained many benefits from the international community.
The advantage of nuclear weapons can also be seen when comparing between Libya and Pakistan. In 2003, Tripoli approval to abandon its nuclear program with a lot of biological weapons and their chemistry, and also committed to stop supporting terrorism. In turn, this North African country to join political and economic systems worldwide. Yet, in the end they would still be attacked on the grounds that suppress the protesters.
Meanwhile, the country owning nuclear weapons, Pakistan could conceal terrorist was wanted in the world for 10 years. Not only that, this country still supports many different militant groups in the region and financial aid to the Taliban. However, Pakistan did not suffer any unintended consequences from the water. They even receive economic aid and military powers from the American world number one.
Thus, despite the beautiful vision that the West offers the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons, countries feel threatened still want to pursue a nuclear program to not be annexed.
America and its allies should understand that the military attacks on countries not possess nuclear weapons are undermined efforts to implement the NPT if any of them by for fear around the country small, then surely they must find ways to curb fears that if, as it can lead the world into a new arms race.
And what would happen if more countries have nuclear weapons? Is the final outcome may be the second World War 3?
