Othman Abdulqader says in an article if the world intends to actually get rid of weapons of mass destruction, the matter needs dialogue and understanding between the states that possess those weapons for a long time and tried them against some peoples in the world, among which America that dropped two nuclear bombs on the two Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in world war II, and Iraq and Afghanistan and perhaps Vietnam, and the states that intend to develop or get such weapons for defensive reasons like Iran and Libya and North Korea. When Bush said on 11 February that he suggested a strict world monitoring on issues of weapons, we arouse a question about the extent the world can achieve stability and security and peace as long as there are states possessing lethal weapons.
